Happy New Year to all my friends out there in blogland! I wish you blessings for this new year! It's been so nice to get to know you all and share all our decorating and fun ideas to make our homes and lives sweeter!
Today Beverly wanted us to write about a project that we have planned for the new year. I have a very big project that I have started this past week while on Christmas break. As many of you know I live in a big old pre-civil war farmhouse. When we became empty nesters we moved our bedroom downstairs in a back room, well I have decided that I missed having a bath in my bedroom, the big walk in closet to add to that I've also read that if your bedroom is on the second floor you will be healthier and live longer. So I've decided to switch my bedroom and sewing room around. A huge job because both rooms need painting, papering and wainscoting. Not to mention all the stuff one can collect in a sewing room. Well the job is well underway and I'll share the final results with you as soon as it's done. I am doing a major destash in my sewing room and I'm feeling really good about it. Sixteen boxes went to Goodwill this past week!
Today I thought I'd share some last of my Christmas with my foyer all done in pink.
Below is a pretty cross stitch that my daughter Jen did for me years ago, this year I made it into a pretty pillow using scraps of fabric.
I wanted some pink roses for my swags in my foyer and was not able to find any in the pale pink that I like so I made them from tissue paper.
I also wanted to share with you these pretty sea shells that my daughter Jen painted for me for Christmas. They will be perfect with the decor in my bedroom when I finish the big move!
