About Me

My Photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

Our Old Mantel and the Giant Tree

I love our mantel. It is not fancy, nor is it big, but it was built around the early 1900's, so that I love! It always spruces up so nice, for anything we celebrate, but especially Christmas. I love to look at it glimmering in the Christmas lights at night. Country hubby wanted a big tree this year. We do have high ceilings, so I said ok...well, it was kinda like Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase...I thought it was gonna burst out the windows of our is huge..ridiculously huge, I don't even have enough stuff to go on a tree that large....but It is Christmas, so what the heck..He wants big, he got big!

I have some old trays, they are tarnished, but I like them tarnished..
I wanted an old old english country??

a little elegance, usually I do kidsy stuff...which I like too..

Love a fresh Rosemary tree...

some fresh garland...good smells going on..

Big tree!


touches of burlap and plain greenery...
