Do you have an interest in finances & investing? If it seems too hard to understand, it really isn't & lots of folks try to make you think it's more difficult than it needs to be.

A good book to help you understand is  "Winning the Loser's Game". Click here to get additional information and check to see if available at your local library!

White Living Room Walls

What do you think? Would you do it? I've been thinking about this a lot lately....and am going to put up some sample boards to check out the walls during the day & into the night.   One white paint color that is mentioned often is Benjamin Moore White Cloud (in eggshell).  For more white paint colors, click here.

 Here are a few pics of living rooms that have white walls that I love!

So what do you think?  I'm thinking yes....

 Have a nice weekend!

Hotel Collection

Long time, no blogging eh?   Recently we bought a new mattress & had to find new bedding. Just thought I'd throw it out there about this awesome down comforter I found & love!  I bought it in the 'taupe' color but it is definitely gray which works for me since I have gray/white striped curtains.



I also re-purchased this white tufted headboard in a king size & love it!

Had to have a bench at the end of the bed as well & found this white leather chrome bench:


And here's our room:

Dipped Legs

Not too many projects at the house this busy summer but I just recently decided to try out the dipped chair trend look. Are you a fan? Here are a few examples that I really liked:

Here is my dipped leg version for my computer chair in the kitchen. I used the BM paint Thunderbird:

So, then I decided the Thunderbird paint wasn't working for me.  Change up. Get out the frog tape.
And get out the left over navy paint from the great room & start painting again.









 Ah, much better. That's what nice about this little project, it is quick to change & puts a smile on my face.
What have you been working on? Happy Wednesday!

Loving Green!

I've been on a green kick around our house lately.  Here's my latest green rug purchase & I am loving it.  Free shipping & I received it the day after I ordered it. Now that's fast!



On a random note, I was in Florida last week with a good friend. Her father was in the Marines, so in honor of Memorial Day, we visited the local Legion Hall located right on the inter-coastal. We were there just in time for their 21 gun salute & taps. Thanks to all of our military!



Wishing you a fun filled weekend!

Rock Fountain Bubblers

We are in the process of updating our landscape & recently saw at a friends house her new rock fountain bubbler.  These are really a nice addition to the landscape & are supposed to be the most simplest of fountains & maintenance free (will have to convince the husband of this).   Here are a few examples:




Or instead of using a rock, you could use a vase:
