Rearranging The Living Room


 After taking down the Christmas tree,

I rearranged the living room.

This is where the table used to be

and I couldn't enjoy the 

fireplace that much.


Now the living room furniture

is on the side of the room

where the table was. 






Now the table is where the 

sofa used to be.







I pulled the footstool

out of the bedroom

to use instead of the coffee table

now I can relax and put my feet up

and enjoy the fireplace 

and watch TV. 

The TV is setting on the hearth

and the chest that the TV was on

is now behind the sofa.



I haven't moved furniture in such

a long time . . .it's a refreshing change.



Oh, I did purchase one 

new item . . .

I found this print at Big Lots

for $35.


Well, that's it . . .

"Everything old is new again" 

Just from rearranging.



Wishing you all a wonderful


God bless you all.

Make-Over Lampshades


Before I get started 

with this make-over post. 

I want to thank all of you 

that left your sweet comments 

concerning Butchy's death.   

He was a sweet little dog 

and for a little fellow that 

has been living with diabetes 

and taking insulin for the past 5 years, 

he has had a remarkable life

He will be greatly missed. 



Once upon a time 

this bedroom looked like this . . .

(notice the two lamps) ]


Then last year I painted,

wall papered,and build 

a new headboard.

(notice the lamps are replaced) 



Well, those lamps have 

been sitting out in the

garage waiting for me to have 

a yard sale.



This week after taking down

the Christmas decorations,

I decide to rearrange the 

living room and I needed

two lamps . . . so these two 

came back into the house 

and got a make-over.



Using painters drop cloth,

glue and uneven yarn I covered

the shades . . . but left 

the lamp base the same as before. 


 Light Off.



Light on.


I'll save the living room

rearrange for my next post . . .

put I do like the way these

lamps turned out.


Have a lovely week,

God bless you all . . 

Your blogging sister,

Connie :)

Saying Good Bye

It's so hard to say good-bye.



Sometimes in life you are blessed

with a very exceptional friend . . .

that was Butchy.

January 13, 2010 /  December 27, 2022


He was such a good boy

and will be greatly missed.
