Back in the Saddle Again..






























Soooo errrr here I am....still alive and kickin. Been uber busy AND oh so UBER sick....me with migraines and the males in my family had that lovely nose cold going around.....God Bless Yous...ran rampant. Good news in the Nelson household though....dh has gone back to work...at least for the time being. I HATE to jinks us and say indef. because with this tempermental economy..one just never knows. Thank-you to those that had us in your prayers!


So with the dynamics of the house changing yet again....me here ALONE.....I have found myself falling ever so sweetly back into my domestic responsibilities. While singing...zippity do daaaa....ixnay that part! I am actually getting things done though! Go Figure. Cleaning and projects. My son's room is coming along nicely. I have had some monumental Mommy guilt over his room. You see I had started it about hmmm. two years ago...went all out with painting...bought some furniture...but never finished because...I did not want to admit that I never liked the painting I did to his walls (which took a lot of work)...so it stood at a stand still. Well I took the bulls by the horns ladies. I ordered him a new bed and got some bedding today...AND I painted the walls. Checkity check check! His room emotionally, was a drainer for me, everytime I went in it. I felt At this rate...it wouldn't get done till he was gone and in college. We got rid of a bunch of things as well....which of course took me down memory lane. A few tears were shed....packing away teddy bears etc. but all is looking peachy. We still have baby tiger..he has to sleep with him and our beloved star wars. GOOOO Obi Wan Kenobi! I LOVE walking in there now...and more importantly ds is diggin his new digs.
I have many things to share..but for now..just a few pics of some rearranging. A little more Spring filtering in...although we have blizzard conditions at the moment. I wanted to share a "Believe" sign I got from a DEAR friend awhile back for my birthday. The little ceramic birdy is new from Target as is the clearance black clock (shhh don't tell anyone but she does not work...I am keeping her for her looks). NOT practical but pretty. I am a dork. The black shelf was in the hallway where the little black table is now.. that I shared last. I wanted a new look and moved it here in the entryway. I love to collect old white pottery. So simple but graphic to me. Just like many of you I ADORE typograpy....numbers, alphas...does not matter. I threw a bunch of my N's in a basket and liked it all willy nilly. The big N.....she broke...by the hand of the NOT so dh at the time. I glued it back and put this blessing ribbon in the fracture. I think that will be it for tonight So for those that emailed me asking if I was alive....Yep still here...can't get rid of me that easy...Ohhhh Andrea http://andreaw123.typepad.com/my_weblog/.....I posted...giggle. XoXo,

So glad that you found your way back into that saddle again. Was beginning to really miss you around here! Migranes....oh my, awful!! But hopefully you are feeling much better. Just loved the eye candy today. Gosh, that basket of "N's"....great idea! I just love initials.

I looooove the transferware of course. I'm so glad you came to visit my new room. How funny that we have the same piece of furniture, must mean that we both have great taste. ;) Is yours black? We bought that, oh, I guess in '03? I wasn't sure what to do with it but you know how it is, paint fixes everything. Now it fits into the room.

I love the idea of putting letters in a basket like that. TOOO cute. I may have to do the same thing!

Emily said...

I'm glad your back, but sorry to hear you are sick. We've had nasty colds as our home as well. Love the N's in the basket. What kind of glue did you use? I broke an E and tried hot gluing it, but it came apart. Can't wait to see your sons room!

Sarah@VintageChic said...

I'm so happy you are back!!! I'm glad your husband found a job as well. That's great news!
Love all your great inspiration... I also love cream/white pottery. I got most of my collection for FREE at a garage sale.

Welcome back! I have to say I love all of your N's in the basket, I collect G's, they live on my mantel, but when I decorate for a holiday I sadly box them, up... Not anymore. I will happily basket them up now! Thanks for the idea!

I love the basket O' N's!! So glad to see your blogging again, I was wondering where you had gone to.

As per the Flowers in my shop. I do discount them when you buy a bunch of 3 for $15. Otherwise they are $6.50 each. :)

If you want a custom lot let me know.

:)Rachel
