OCD sometimes it's just there

OK, i have diagnosed myself. i know 100% for sure i have OCD. i just spent 2 hours "fixing" my old posts where i used the free signature generator. something happened and my name didn't come up on many posts. i think this happened a few months ago when blogger changed it's format. or i did something WRONG, i'm "techie" challenged. so, as my husband & son watched the yankees in the play offs i corrected at least 50 posts. whats wrong with me? i could have been doing something much better like matching socks, putting all the clothes away in alphabetical order. (not really lol) but, before i spent 2 hours "fixing" old posts i spent 2 hours creating the new closing and signature using my photo shop software and photobucket. i guess all is not lost. all this from someone who is challenged with applications on the computer. take care

Hello!! it's been a few months since I last joined in on PINK SATURDAY. a lot going on during this past summer. some remodeling that i thought would never end. guess what, it almost didn't. that's a story for another blog.
today i'm sharing the LORD'S PRAYER as my PINKness.
 it hung on the wall in our old bedroom . part of the remodel was a new master bedroom (i love the new space) i plan on hanging the plate in our room again along with a few other vintage spiritual pieces. my spiritual growth is happening in leaps, i want all the LORD has to say to be around my home. i've created small vignettes to fit in with the rest of the romance and relics that seem to overtake the floor & wall space. well, you all have a great week and hope we meet up again.
i'm happy to be back with all the PINK, please be sure and visit Beverly @

Family Room Remodel and the 58" screen TV

June 29 started a very long and stressful remodel project on our 3 bedroom ranch. Thats when the demo began downstairs a much needed and a long overdue project for our family. Jim and I have a total of 4 young adult children all but 1 live with us. We're a blended family and at times under go alot of adjusting.This remodel being one of those adjusting TIMES. The project has given us a large family room and a master bedroom. The finial insepection was two weeks ago and little by little the new space is coming together. I will be doing a limited amout of the decorating in the family it seems all my Romance ~n~ Relics with shades of pinks, greens & white will take on a more masucline LOOK. My husband would like to compliment my love of vintage and create an English Gentlemen's parlor for the family room. We haven't started any decorating but, this is the plan. So, the "parlor look" will start off slow adding pieces a little at a time. For now we're using borrowed furniture, and oh yeah enjoying the 58" flat screen TV. I don't think the Victorian's used 58" screen TV's mmmmmmmmmm what happened, what did I miss, how did he slip that thing in there? I  posted before pictures on a previous blog maybe back in June. And of course here are the afters. Thanks and have a blessed day.
