October CupboardScape

My next door neighbor is a Witch

And she lives way down in a Ditch

Her clothing is a little Strange.

Because she never wants to Change.

She has a black robe and a black Hat.

Green skin and a black Cat.

A big fat wart grows on her Nose.

And seventeen pimples on her Toes.

I hope you liked my Haloween

I took a break from cleaning to eat lunch
and do this quick post.
So far only our master bedroom and hall
are back to normal.

Roses are Red
Violets are Blue.
Happy Halloween to You.
With a big fat Boo!

We will be at the store for Trick or Treating.
Passing out candy to witches, goblins and more.
Halloween Blessings To All!

Thursday Musings

out there.

I am back home........
Let me say for anyone who has to do a remodel
of a bathroom,
well lets just hope you have another bath in the house.
Ours has been 14 years in the making,
and we still did not plan it out like we had hoped.
One week tops.
That was what we thought it would take to finish.
Which ended up being almost 3 weeks.
I must say though I am very happy with the results.
Bob just has to hang the mirror,
and then I get to do the fun  part.

However before I do that...
much much cleaning to do in the house.
There must be drywall dust, 
sawdust and bits of tile everywhere.
I even think our kitties may need a good brushing.

All crafting will be put on hold,
so I can clean this dirty house.

I did not get much done on my rug
 this past week at my mom's.
Each morning I white knuckled it to work
from her house.
She has way too many deer.

Each morning I rolled both front windows down.
Turned up the radio as high as it would go....
in hopes that the deer would hear me coming.

Call me crazy....
but each night driving home,
there were more and more
 dead deer on the side of the road.

I figured it was worth a try to blare the music.

One evening as I was pulling 
into my mom's driveway,
a baby deer was staring right at me from her backyard.
I slowly got out of the car,
went inside the house and told my mom
to look out her back windows.
Not only did we see that baby deer,
but another baby (twins) and 2 does as well.
All in her backyard.

Then there were the nights with no power.
Although I love my mom dearly
As Dorothy would say from the Wizard Of Oz.
"There's no place like home!"

I hope you enjoyed my pictures past.
As I settle back into the groove,
I will again post more.
Until then friends,
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
{we finally had our first frost}
Snow expected Monday.
{furnace is turned on}

Thursday Musing Blessings To All!

Here Today

Gone Tomorrow.
Well it seems we have a few more days before
the bathroom gets finished.
Cousin Jimmy was sick a few days last week...
which put our bath on hold.

At least I came home to find a few more things completed.

Our farmhouse bath is coming along.
Where the toilet paper is currently,
a door will be made as an access panel to the shower.
Wood boards up and painted grey.
Bob's uncle is here from Vegas and said it looked like
an indoor outhouse. LOL

 Ceiling and other walls painted white.
New light.
We chose brushed nickel for the accessories.

Wall lights.
Antique mirror will go in between.

Close up of wall light.

Granite niches for luffas and body washes.

Another black granite niche for shampoo.
The green board is making this niche look green too.

Black granite top bench.
I am going to love this!

This is where they left off before Jimmy got sick.
Once all of the tile gets set, then grout.
Then the floor and the glass door.
So am off once again after laundry is done,
and dinner made for Bob.

I leave you with this sweet postcard that
I received in the mail this week from Winnie.
I love it Winnie. 

My camera is not the best sorry.
As with most of my blogging friends;
we have never met in person, 
but each of you I consider to be my 

Even though lots of my blogging friends have 
stopped blogging, or moved on to Facebook,
I chose to stay blogging.

By reading other blogs, we learn about each other with each post.
Even those who do not have blogs,
even your comments let me peek inside your world.
That's why I love blogging!
So I will plug away at my blog.
Try to make it interesting for you.
My way of staying in touch with each of you too!
For now though, I will be absent once again for a bit.
Hopefully I will be back soon...
and back to my normal blogging.
Until then, hope everyone has an enjoyable week.

Here Today Blessings To All!

Peek A Boo

Happy Sunday To All!
I popped in to make dinner for Bob,
do some laundry for him and grab some more clothes.
Will be off to my mom's again in a bit.

Each night at my mom's, 
I have been working on my rug.
Except one night she was without power.
Was a bit different having to light the candles.
She often loses power where she lives...we do not so much. 

All of the corners are complete now.
More than halfway done.
Am loving the old world colors I chose for this rug.
{remember to bring more blue to finish the flower}

Now the only reason I am here 
at home today is because we now have this.

A queen needs her throne. LOL

This is the shower right now.
The green board is to protect from mold.
Bob is currently working on the niches we have planned
inside the shower and also the granite bench.

Well, I am off to fold clothes,
pack my suitcase, 
get Bob's dinner ready,
and will be off to my mom's once again.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Peek A Boo Blessings To All!

Diablo WInner & Other News

TGIF Everyone.
Before I announce the winner of Diablo,

I wanted to show you what I came home to yesterday.

{where vanity and mirror once was}

We have been waiting for months
 to have our bathroom remodelled.
We had to wait for Bob's cousin who is our contractor.
He decided yesterday was the day to start.
{where tub/ shower once was}

No warning what so ever that this was starting now.
Came home from work as they were taking the old tub out.
{old ugly pink wall tile}

At least they left me a toilet for now.
{old ugly floor tile}

Now the bad part.
We will be without a bathroom for 2 weeks;
not one like we originally thought.
I am working the store tomorrow,
so cuz and Bob can frame out the bathroom.
Sunday will do laundry and then head up to my moms
until the bathroom is completed.
Unfortunately my mom does not have any
computer I will be away for 2 weeks.

Now for some good news.
I had Bob pick out the winner.
First off, I want to thank everyone
for your candy choices.
They all were good and we will be
 using all that were suggested.
We are now also thinking about making up T-shirts
with our name and city.
Thank you Linda for that suggestion!

Oops more bad news.
Since Bob will be working every day with cuz
on the bathroom and I will be at my mom's....
the winner of Diablo will have to wait until
Bob can get to the post office to mail him out.
So sorry about this...but I truly did not know
the bathroom would be started
 when I chose to do my giveaway.

Alright, so the winner of Diablo is


Winnie please send me your info at
and I will get out your package as soon as we are able.

Again to everyone,
a big

T H A N K    Y O U!

Will be offline for awhile,
so I will miss you all.
However when I return....
I will have a new bathroom.
Y I P E E!

Bedroom Find N Seek

So very glad you could join me
for a game of
Find ~ N ~ Seek
{Janice's version}

Find the feathers.
{On the bed}

Pretty easy game don't you think?
Now find the tansy.

It is in the pitcher which is next to my closet.
Did you find it?

Now find the 5 pieces of crockery.
{two on the floor, three on the table}
Pretty easy right?

Next do you see the basket?

Did you find it with a bit of bittersweet nearby.

How about the pheasant feathers?

Tucked inside the wax sealers.
Did you spot them?.

Finally the stone fruit.
{This one's really easy}

This peach is sitting on the bonnet.

Hope you enjoyed my silly game of 
Find N Seek.

More of our Autumn bedroom in more posts.

Yesterday Bob and I went to a festival of 
Whistles on the Water.
They demonstrated different kinds of ship
horns or whistles as they call them.
Boy were they loud.
Being on the river this type of stuff interests us.
Today it is foggy, so I have been hearing the frieghters
blow their horn at each buoy,
It's to let other freighters know they are in the river.

We then went on our usual antique shop haunts,
and I found a few things.
Yippee for me.
Plus it is nice seeing old friends that we don't often get to see.

After that my brother/SIL, sister/BIL, Bob and I took my mom out for her 83rd wonderful birthday.
We invited my mom's sister to come along too.
It was nice because I do not often see my siblings.
{we had lots of catching up to do}

Today I am probably going to make some chili for dinner.
It is a bit chilly this morning.
Then will move my living room furniture for the Winter look.
Then create a Halloween goodie for a giveaway.
Stay tuned. 

What does this day find you doing?

Find N Seek Blessings To All!
