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

Welcome to our entry

Hello

Its been a couple of months since I’ve posted anything on my blog.

With summer here and visiting my Mom every other week it’s been a little busy.

But…..We have finally finished our entry and it’s lovely.  Well I love it.

This is condo living.  It took me a real long time to feel comfortable living in a condo, but can I tell you it’s probably one of the best things my husband and I did.  After 10 yrs living here I finally love it ♥️

Welcome to our home 🌸🌼

I love this basket, I use it year round.

Just change the flowers, in the fall, and at Christmas it’s a great idea, and it doesn’t cost too much.

Pete did a fantastic job putting this together for me.  We purchased the shelf on Etsy, he brought the molding at Home Depot.  The coat hooks are from the same store where we got the shelf.

Listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/480339583/wall-coat-rack-fancy-mantel-coat-rail-36

I chose not to put the hooks on the shelf, because I knew I wanted them right where they are.

So we painted a square block of the wall in white then put the shelf up and finally attached the moldings.

I love it ♥️♥️♥️

One the other side of the hallway is this old window.  We attached the little window box then just added a few flowers.

The HOME sign was purchased at “At Home”

This is the entire entry. Not to big, but a good size for a condo.

We live one the second floor, private entrance to each condo.

I hope you enjoyed.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Stay cool

Update on the entry

Good morning friends ~

We are well on our way to completing the entryway.  Pete has painted the walls and the front door. 39AE15CD-C36A-4D06-9D04-1D76C71FCAA9

This is right after he finished painting the front door.  It was white, and I just love the color and warmth that the door is now.

The next few pictures will be of the one wall which is completed.

I purchased the tiny window box on Etsy.

We attached the window box directly to the window.  I added the faux flowers and the garland around the window.

The garland was purchased at a little craft store local.

The flowers at Michaels

The HOME sign Purchased “At Home”

The black bench was purchased several years ago at Wayfair.

Hope you enjoyed the little visit in our entry.

Stay tune to for the compleation in a few weeks.

 

Have a a wonderful weekend.

Much love,

Rose 🌹

New to the condo ~

Hi Friends ~

Pete & I have decided to redo the entryway to our condo.

It is long overdue – The rug is old and the walls are in dyer need of a paint brush.

I found this on Pinterest ~ and it looks like it could be our entryway.

Pete will be building it.  Great place to hang your coat when entering our home, and the shelf will be great for displaying seasonal treasures.

One difference will be ~ no bench under the shelf and hooks  – there will be a seat across from this.

How I became to know the "Holy Spirit", Uncategorized

Continuing with the Divine Mercy

Dear Friends ~

Being that today is Good Friday, I thought I would continue on with my search into the Divine Mercy.

I started a novena to the Divine Mercy today –

Here is the link if you are interested

http://www.praymorenovenas.com/

I hope you will join me and saying this amazing novena.

I also receive daily inspiration from the Divine Mercy Daily –

I will be reading these little meditations every day, and with that I am hoping to help you and me understand all about Saint Faustina.  It is a daily reflection from the diary of St Faustina.

 

Here is one quote from St Faustina  ~  It is one I sometimes struggle with ~

I hope I can make these readings enjoyable for you.

Have a wonderful Easter.

Much love,

Who knew

Good morning friends ~

I know it’s been a very long time since I have posted anything.

I have had lots of personal things happening in my life, but hope to be back now.

So this seems to be where my eye goes it’s called “Modern Farmhouse”  WHO KNEW

I will be taking a look at this through Pinterest and sharing it with you.

First up is the kitchen – of course what else would it be…..

What I like about this picture:

  1. The white cabinets
  2. The hardwood floors
  3. The dining space next to the kitchen
  4. The touches of blue
  5. The huge window

This is a great accessory for Modern Farmhouse.

I do bake quite often and having glass canisters are perfect, and they look clean and tidy.

 

modern farmhouse 4 What I like about this pantry:

  1. The pull out draws
  2. The open shelving ~ you can see everything, this is especially good for me since I do tend to purchase things I already have.
  3. Space to put larger appliances ~
  4. I believe the door to the pantry is glass – I like that.

I love the coziness of this room.

The kitchen table and chairs are beautiful.

The dough bowl is perfect for Modern Farmhouse –  you can change it out seasonally

This picture reminds me of my Grandma kitchen – I love it.

 

I hope you have enjoyed the first room of our series of “Modern Farmhouse”

Have a wonderful day.

Much love,
