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,

Rose

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,

Rose

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~

Time in Brooklyn

Good morning friends ~

I have been so busy, doing things that take up my days, and haven’t had time to even think about my blog.

But, I am sitting here at my daughters taking care of her little kitty Sam.

She is the sweetest little cat, and we love being here with her.

f15e2e4d-47d5-4720-b202-8960edac7ccf

We also love being in Brooklyn, there is so much to do and see and all within walking distance.  I really feel like I’m on a vacation.

Yesterday we went to brunch, and was within walking distances.   It was lovely out the sun was shining, and the temperature was 32 degrees which was warm.  The past week it’s been so windy and cold.

If you are ever in Brooklyn I recommend Mayfield for brunch.  Atmosphere is wonderful and food is superb.

Exciting news ♥️♥️

Good morning friends ~

We spent Thanksgiving in Portland Oregon this year.  I have to say I think it was the best thanksgiving I can remember.

So many wonderful memories to keep in your heart, but the best thing that happened was these two beautiful people got engaged.

This is our youngest Aly and her amazing fiancé Brian.

We couldn’t be happier for them.

May all your days that lie ahead be as happy as you are right now.

Love you both so much.

Happy Thanksgiving 🧡

Hello dear friends,

Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite times of the fall season.

I always feels very calm around this holiday. As the leaves start falling, it becomes clear to me that change is happening.  Even though I’m not a real fan of change, I love the changes of the seasons.  I’m glad I live in the north eastern part of New York.  The beauty of the mountains and the colors of the leaves are Thanksgiving to me.  It brings such a peace in my heart.

This year we will be spending it with our youngest and her boyfriend.

It’s  very exciting, because they just moved to Portland, Oregon, and she will be hosting Thanksgiving for the first time.

I’m excited to be there to help in anyway I can.

So from our home to yours we are wishing you the best Thanksgiving ever.

Much love,

Rose
