And now to what you REALLY came here for .... the winner of my blogoversary Prim Gathering.
Can you see - it's Lauren from Simple Blessings !
Thank you for another wonderful post, Linda:) I enjoy each and every one I read...I know how much you truly put into them, and I appreciate it! So with that, happy blogging anniversary!! I look forward to another year of happy reading:) Thank you for offering such a great gathering for your giveaway..you know I would be more than proud to display anything of yours in my place!!
And also, thank you for all of your work with cancer organizations and patients. I'm sure you've been thanked a million times, but I want to thank you too. I have known and loved so many people suffering from cancer...I actually got a call this morning that a woman from my church past away last night after a long battle. And you're right...it does SUCK!!! (to use an ugly word). I am going to visit the site you linked right now, and I sincerely hope that I can help them in any way possible! April 15, 2009 12:00 PM
Congratulations Lauren! A nurse in training - near and dear to my own heart. I will be contacting you to get your mailing address. I hope you enjoy your prim gathering!
In other news, I finally have pictures of hubby's finished office to share! YAY!! it is done. DH is very happy with the changes I made and the colors I chose, so even though it is not the picture of perfect prim or colonial style I would choose, it is a success because it is his room after all. He's a really great guy so he deserves it.
View from the hall....This is where DH watches golf with his eyes closed....
I suggested we get DH a new black flat screen TV but DH isn't into the newest fads, so the big silver box stays put. I guess that means more money for prims!
And this where DH sits when he pays the bills I make for him. I managed to put his favorites back while adding a few nice prims too.
Again the paint colors are both Benjamin Moore from the Historical Collection. The top color is Powell Buff and the bottom is Tyler Taupe. Nothing in the room is brand new. In fact most things I have had for a long time so I don't have sources for anything else except the wonderful game board over the TV. That is a Momma's Prims Original from Kindra. I think she is still having a mini sale on her blog, so stop on over!
And I also spent some time on another redo Behind My Red Door - this time quite literally! For quite awhile now, I have loved the black door in the foyer over at Dot's Picket's Place. I first saw it when I met Dot on RMS. That gal loves her black and when she painted that door, I think I was as excited as she was! The inside of my front door - My Red Door, was the last interior door needing a spruce up and I decided that unless and until I get to paint all my woodwork a nice colonial color, black was going to be the color of the inside of that door. I use so much black in our home and this just seems to pull it all together. And if it didn't work, I could just repaint it after all. But I am thrilled with the color choice and it just adds a pop of black to the front foyer.
The dark spots you see in the side lights are the little tin animals I got in Colonial Williamsburg many years ago.
The next time I come back I will have a few things to share. A small but significant change in our bedroom, some pretty spring views and I will be sharing some real eye candy and just a wonderful home - I think my all time favorite. Just wait until to see this one! And last but not least, I also hope to have some updated pics of Liliana's nursery. I have some stenciling to do before I can share, so stay tuned. I hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring weekend in your neck of the woods, down your country lane, up upon your hill or in your big city.
Until Next Time - Hugs, Linda
