A life recorded is twice precious - first the experience itself and then the memory of it full and sweet when we read about it later.

Table Top Tuesday............

TABLE TOP TUESDAY on the Stroll Thru Life Blog HERE.
                       A good morning to everyone and welcome to Table Top Tuesday sponcered by Marty 
Marty took on a big job, please go to her blog and check out all the lovely table tops.  It is such fun to go in to homes and see how they decorate and get some new ideas.  The picture of the cute little boy is my Charlie when he was a little guy..  All the pictures are family treasures, the three children are Charlies dad and two sisters at there conformation..   I love my pretty lady  checking her self out in a mirror.  I put a few silk roses on my lamp to make the seting look more Victorian.   I also added lace to the bottom of the shade to make the look I wanted.   Please come back soon and visit me and my little cottage

The color red, Cabin fever, And roses.............

Hi,  A happy Monday to everyone, hope you had a good week end and you are  ready to start another week of this long long  winter..   I know why it has been so long for Charlie and me, usually we spend a month or two or three in Florida.  It is the first winter in twenty years we have stayed in Ohio the whole winter.  Charlie is taking chemo and a test drug for lung cancer so we are here for the whole season.    I hope every one up north will think spring with me.

   I am in the house way to much and looking at the same thing every day, I now know why people say they have cabin fever because this year I caught it to.   As I sit around and look at the same thing over and over I think just what could I do to change a few things, I can not move the furniture because there is only one way in my long dining and living room for the furniture to sit..

But I am going to change every thing else I can.  As you can see in the picture above there is just so much I can do, you can see the color red and pictures of roses every where in my home.  I can not move the furniture or change all of the colors but I can get the paint brush out, move some pictures, change the drapes and do a few  things here and there to change the look.  Please come back to see the before and after pictures of my little cabin where I caught the bad winter fever.
                        Love ya,   Sharon
