We are having a horrible heatwave here in the Midwest...

So indoor photos from me today!  =)

I made a few changes in the living room...Finally decorated the mantle!  I know SO many people long for a mantle to decorate, but I have always struggled with this one except at Christmas time  I sort of despise  dislike fake greenery, but I received a piece with a lantern I bought from Celebrating Home & it's been laying around & I finally thought...I'll just try it on the mantle.  It needs color & texture so why not?  I can't say that I love it, but it does look way better than it has in two years!  Lol

I am just loving my itty bitty TV too!  I can see more of this gorgeous dresser!  My plan is to have the hubs put hinges on the top two drawers so the fronts will flip down  & I can put the components in there and get them out from under the cabinet!

I am loving these yellow spider mums that the little picked out for her birthday party over two weeks ago!  They are finally dying off, but I can't believe they lived for two weeks!

Here is a sneak peak of my buffet, although even being Mrs. Impatient I am not too excited to share theses...Without the drawers & doors you lose the whole effect.  The drawers/doors need some wood putty on the chipping veneer & need to be painted...I was hoping to get that done yesterday, but with this heatwave we are having it's going to have to take a little longer than planned.

That's all I have to share today...Try to stay cool!  I know we are just hanging out in the ac today!  It'll be a good day to catch up on some laundry & maybe work on cleaning the kids' rooms...I have some big plans for the girls' rooms that I really need to get started on.  Unfortunately one of them requires moving a bunk bed around...Not sure I can tackle that alone!  Lol


  1. I just stumbled across your blog via Better After. I love shopping Craigslist too. You can find some great stuff there! This year alone I have bought a new chair and a dining room set (which I refinished and distressed).

  2. Can I just tell you how jealous I am that you have my dream buffet? Seriously, I've been looking all over. It looks beautiful so far. Can't wait to see the finished project. I love buffets. We are having a heatwave here too in central Florida but I like it. I get to paint furniture on my driveway in a swimsuit and get a nice tan at the same time! :) Stay cool

  3. Ha Josie! The swimsuit tip is a good one...The problem here is the nasty humidity! With our heat index it feels like 110 degrees! The paint just can't dry...I am so ready for fall!!!
