Happy Hump Day y'all! Is it really Wed already!? This week is going by quickly but thankfully I am finally caught up on laundry! I have been busy cleaning and straightening and what not which brings me to this question.

|This was our foyer back when we first moved in last year. Oh the possibilities it held!|
|This is were my awesome pumpkin sign that I won from Paula over at Castle & Cottage ended up! All I need to do is add some pumpkins and it will be good to go. Thanx again Paula for such a great giveaway!|
|Here is what the bench looked like after I stole the decoration from the frame to put in the office. Trust me when I say the shoes have been much much worse.|
|This is the newly organized bench area. I cleaned out the coat closet which stores all of our shoes on a closet organizer I had used in the nursery when the boys were little. We shall see how long the shoes stay put up. I am really loving the signs but not digging the circle in the frame but it will do for now.|
With very little effort I think I added some much needed coziness and warmth to our foyer. Thanx for stopping by and be sure to hop on over to BTNOTP for Metamorphosis Monday and see other wonderful transformations!
I have sorta been MIA as of lately. A lot has been going on around here. I was sick and then Oldest and Littliest were under the weather as well. On Top of all that my Aunt Susie passed away last Thursday night. Please if you have a moment pray for her family to find peace in her passing. She was married to my Uncle for 48 years!! I pray that The Hubster and I make it that long! She has two sons and four wonderful grandsons of which the latest was born just this past Spring. I am soo thankful that she was able to spend some time with him. I find peace in knowing that she is no longer in pain and no longer in fear of leaving her family though she knew what a wonderful place she was going to. She had battled pancreatic cancer for the past year maybe longer. The last time I saw her sadly enough was almost 9 years ago when my Nanny passed away. I can count on one hand the only times I remember seeing her but I can still hear her say the phrase "Mom & Dad"when ever she was referring to my Nanny and Poppy. She is dearly missed that is for sure. Her memorial service was today and mom said that Uncle Earl was expecting 250-300 people!! Yes, she was truly loved by all who met her!
So with that being said I have literally been all over the place with what I have been trying to accomplish.
|This is the future top to our kitchen island! It just needs a little more lovin' and it will be perfect.|
|This is my friends fireplace.|
|This is what my wild hair did this evening after putting the boys to bed. Rub on scrolly things for the island. I was going to attempt hand painting them but figured I would try these out. What is the worse that could happen right!?|
|This past week I did find new knobs for the island at HobLob!! I just love um so much that I am going to be getting some for our bathroom as well.|
