New Acquistions....

Remember a few weeks ago when I said we were painting rooms and rearraging kids bedrooms? And that *fingers crossed* Ellie would move out of Mommy and Daddy's bedroom?
Well because this happened:
THIS happened in Mommy and Daddy's bedroom:

Daddy bought Mommy (I mean us) a new LCD flatscreen tv to go in our bedroom!

Mommy added some chairs (and her stitching supplies)
Then Mommy saw that Hobby Lobby was having a 50% off sale on "wall decor" - what LOVELY timing Mommy thought :o) Daddy wasn't so sure about the timing:



And because Mommy likes to copy Staci so much that she's copying THIS (5th picture down)
and lovelies will be hanging from the hooks as soon as she gets her nose to the grindstone and stitches them instead of being on this computer!

And since it is soon fall, there's been some heavy duty fall cleaning, clearing and decorating has been going on and all this is the result of that:














WHEW! Mommy's tired....

Off to get to that stitchy copying....

Until next time friends :o) Have a great Holiday Weekend!

  3. What beautiful fall decor! When can you come to my house and decorate it for me? ;-)

    And I really had to laugh at your sign-off in your previous post..."may the floss be with you" LOL! Being married to a Star Wars junkie, I find that especially funny...of course he wouldn't agree and would think I was being totally corny.

  4. Your home looks wonderful Vonna :) I pulled out my fall decor last weekend (and found a couple new things to add this week, because they were "on sale"!) I'll be doing my fall cleaning in a few more weeks...

    Love your sign with the hooks and can't wait to see what you hang from it ;)

  19. Congrats on the new TV! My brother bought my dad a 37 incher that will go into his new room (the addition) when completed. I love it so much I might have to have one myself.
    I'm stopping at Home Depot tomorrow to get some paint for my bedroom. The decorating bug has hit me too!

    Your home is beautifully decorated, Vonna. Such excellent taste!

  20. It sure was fun taking that little tour through your stitching things!

    Now I must go clean my house! :)

  21. Hello!
    What an amazing home you have. It must really have been a lot of hard work in the new decoration. Although August here is still very hot, I could smell a bit of Christmas looking to some of your pictures. Of course the sewing machine brought me fond memories: my mom had one when I was little (I'm 41 now) and she worked a lot on it.
    I'm sure Ellie will be convinced with such a beatiful place for her.
    Best regards and have a nice weekend.

  29. What a charming home, Vonna and your fall decorating is gorgeous. I think I could just plop myself down in your stitching chair and quite happily make myself right at home!

  30. Shame on you Vonna for giving us so much eye candy! Everything looks beautiful, and you can really tell you love and enjoy your home. The girl's room is so cute, but that TV is wonderful! And, all your stitching and quilts brings heavy sighs! Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, friend...you HAVE been busy! Your home looks great! I was hoping you'd post some pics of it soon! The girls's room looks awesome! I love the purple and their names on the walls...reminds me of my girls's rooms :) Their bedding is adorable too! Looks like a page out of pottery barn kids! You go, girl! And WHOA on your new tv...I won't breathe a word of that to Kev...he would be VERY jealous! You have the loveliest home! Miss ya' and maybe we can hang out soon...if baby holds off! Hugs!

  32. It's just such a lovely home. That you keep it so nice and do all the rest that you do is absolutely amazing!! I'm in awe.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wendy and I are going to have to fight over your stitching chair and stand! LOL! Love your decorating touch--so comfy and warm.

    And I love hearing about your walking, something I should be doing but have not yet managed (BF's take on it: ok if you want to, but take the pepper spray I bought you and I want you to get your concealed weapons permit and carry a gun. Oh, for pity's sake, I say--who wants to take a walk and accidentally shoot themselves in the leg? So picture me, bumbling along in the dark, clanking and clinking as I walk, with my flashlight, pepper spray and gun, shooting anything that moves. Woopsie! Shot a neighbor taking out the garbage!

  34. What a super Fall whirlwind!!!! Your decorations and autumnal touches are just great!!!

  41. Hi Vonna,
    It is great visiting you again today and seeing all your lovely pictures.
    How absolutely exciting for the girls that they are now sharing a room. Mommy & Daddy's room looks great too.
    Oh my goodness Vonna - you certainly are tempting me with the Me, myself and I SAL. I love all the neighbourhoods I see and have wanted one forever. Must give it a little more though before commiting as I don't have my patterns here yet so I'm not quite certain what I have to work with.

  42. Your home is beautiful! I've always wondered what people do with all of the exchanges they receive and now I know.

    I'm a fellow Indiana stitcher... way up here in Elkhart. I think an indiana exchange would be a fabulous idea! Sometimes the fun of an exchange is sending pretty things so far away, but sending more locally would be great too.

  44. It looks great, your 'new' home!

    Have a nice Sunday & greetings, Carolien

  45. I've just spent a long time tidying and cleaning and changing around my other half's study/spare room and it looks no-where near as nice as your house and I'm shattered! Obviously I didn't have nearly enough bits and bobs of seasonal cross stitch to dot around. Better get stitching!
    Thanks for sharing your lovely photos and for making me just a little envious of your homemaking skills! Bx

  46. Oh my goodness, Vonna! Your house should really and truly be featured in magazines. You have SUCH a flair!!

  48. Ohhh my Vonna, how busy you were with arranging all the lovely stuff...I don´t want to think of autumn already because this brings winter so close to and I don´t like snow and the cold;-((

  50. Very pretty Vonna! My stitching chair is in our bedroom with my stitching supplies right next to my chair. It is my little quiet spot where I can sit and stitch and watch tv without my husband or my son flicking the channels (that drives me nuts).

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wow! The walls are looking marvelous. I love all the bits and pieces. I'm a minimalist, to be honest, cos we have so much 'stuff' that to clutter our walls would be all too much. Also, having spent so much time painting the walls, I'm enjoying looking at the paint. LOL

  52. I love your decorating. It looks great!

    You can get so much stuff done. I want to know what kind of drugs you take to get that much done. LOL.
