Something New to the Office

Good morning friends ~

First Happy New Year. ✨🎉✨.

Next, we have decided to do a small update in the Office.
First to go are the recliner, large desk & rug.  The desk & recliner we will donated to the Salvation Army.
I love donating to them, they so appreciate everything you give them.

Our new design will consist of:

New 55” smart TV

New carpet

New Recliner

AND ✨ a little tweak here & there.



We painted about two years ago and the walls are in great shape.  It should be quite easy to make this change since all we have to do is put the desk together.

Best Buy will install the TV & Lowe’s will install the carpet.

Looking forward to sharing the New TV/office.

Wishing you a wonderful day.

Much love,

Rose ♥️



Beautiful Brooklyn💖

Good morning friends ~

Pete & I stayed at our daughters for 4 days.  We did some exploring in her area.

Exploring Prospect Park was the highlight of our visit.  It sits on 585-acre and is 151 years old.  What a gem and in walking distance to our daughters place.

We were at LaFrak Center at Lakeside.

The lake is home to hundreds of Red ear Slider turtles  🐢



The rustic arches were breath taking


Yes that is my husband being a nut as usual. But, this is one of the things I love about him.

The boathouse in Prospect Park was built in 1905 & one of NY first building to be declared an historic landmark.

We went inside, but sorry no pictures.  The staircase was amazing.  You can use both sides of the staircase to enter the second floor deck area.  When on the deck you see Lullwater Bridge.

The waterfall under the bridge is so peaceful.

I hope you enjoyed our small tour of Prospect Park.

Have a peaceful day.  Turn up the sound on the video, and it will start or end you day peacefully.

Much love,

Rose 💕




Master Bedroom Suite Finished 🌸

Good morning friends ~

The Master Bedroom is finally completed.

I have lots of pictures.  I hope you enjoy them all.

Much love,


This room is one of the hardest tasks I’ve ever taken upon myself. We went through so many changes throughout the remodel. Now that it is complete we couldn’t be happier. The quilt was handmade.
These pillow cases were purchased at Soft Surroundings They are beautiful.


The king pillow cases were purchased on Etsy. Southern Linens
The end table purchased at Birch Lane. The lamp was purchased at Lamps Plus.
Curtain was made by my friend They are beautiful.
A little view from our deck outside the Master.
A better view of the little deck
The two photos on either side of the dresser I took while at a beautiful garden in South Carolina. I had them put onto canvas
This sweet cabinet was purchased at Decor Steal. I lined it with the same fabric in the quilt.
I painted the table with chalk paint & transferred the decal. The horse was purchased at Decor Steal.
The shelf above our bed. It is 5” wide. Perfect for pictures & some sweet things that mean so much.
The bathroom is a mirror image of the bedroom. Using board and batten


I saw a picture on Pinterest and decided to use the hooks instead of a towel bar.
This cute little shelf was purchased at Hobby Lobby. My sweet husband got the glass angel at Pottery Barn. I made the heart.


The glass containers were purchased at Pottery Barn tissue box and & trash can was purchased at World Market
Here is the closet. I purchased the chandelier at Wayfair. It totally made this space elegant.


The closet units were also purchased at Wayfair. Shoe boxes at the Container Store. We wallpaper the back wall. I am in love with the wallpaper.

What a difference

Hi friends ~

We cleaned all the outdoor furniture, set it all up on our small deck, got rid of a few thing that took up too much room and planed a few flowers.

Purchased an indoor outdoor rug, and I can’t believe the difference that made.

I love how it pulls all the navy & white together.

Check out this sweet little cat that sits on the side of the pot that holds my mint.

Hoping your Saturday is wonderful.

Much love,

Rose ♥️







Good morning friends ~

Today when I woke up, still in the guest room I slowly walked to the Master Bedroom and looked at this amazing room.  Something I worked on for 6+ months.

It truly payed off.  The hours I spent looking through Pinterest and pictures I put onto my New Master board.

I’m overjoyed with the results.

The moldings are beautiful and we had an artist created this for us.

I love the shelf above the bed.  It is 5” deep so it can hold pictures, and pretty much so many other things.

The end table is perfect.  There is a hidden small table that pulls out for a cup of coffee or tea, and lets be honest an occasional glass of wine.

The wood horse sits on top of the armoire.

The wood cabinet holds very special things given to me, especially our first set of wedding bands make by my Dad ♥️♥️

Wishing you a beautiful weekend.

Much love,






Almost completed

Good morning friends ~

We are on our final stage with the Master Bedroom & Bathroom.

We had an amazing contractor do all our moldings & paint.

The room looks so beautiful.

We chose Benjamin Moore “Beacon Gray” and so glad we did.  It’s such a soft blue gray color.




We chose to do board & batten for the lower half of the walls.

The battens waiting to be put up.  I’m getting so excited for this to be finished.

The last picture is some of the detail work being created.

I am so happy with the results.



Closet Almost completed

Hi friends ~

Here we are inside the closet.

Closet maid organizer finished.

Wallpaper finished.

Mirror is up and dresser in place.  All my cloths in order.

Just waiting for the medallion to arrive then the chandelier can go up.

Still need a few baskets for the cubbies, and clear boxes for my boots.

70DB1AF1-7079-4847-886B-53905403B8DAMy jewelry draw was made by Fine Art Holders  on Etsy

The top drawer in the dresser was 4” deep, so made for a great spot for my jewelry.

The last 2 photos –

I stained the small tray, cut a piece of wallpaper, and placed it under a piece of glass.

Perfect spot for my perfume, and a small ceramic box which houses my earrings.

Hope this finds you all having a wonderful day.

Much Love,

New Master Bed & Bath

Hello friends ~

Pete & I will be celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary in May, and we talked about going away,  but redoing our bedroom was a better idea for both of us.  We love staying in watching a movie and cooking together, so that being said we chose to remodel our Master Bed & Bath.

This is a little peek of what’s to come~


This is the door to my closet.

The color we chose is Benjamin Moore ~ Beacon Gray. 58A544C4-68B3-46B9-BCF3-CBDC8AD062E4

Here are 2 of the pillows I made for the bed.



The rug was installed yesterday.  We purchased it from Lowe’s


I love it.  The texture is beautiful.

I’ll be sending more pictures as we get things completed.


Enjoy your weekend.

Much love,
