Why she re-decorates the house!!! That's what she does.
I decided to put my frog collection down in the solarium.
I have been wanting to do this for a while now. So, when I got out of work I started working on arranging and rearranging and arranging again.
And then there was the living room wall. I spent hours on it and still am not thrilled with it but it will do for now;) I think I need a larger shelf for better proportion.
Another part of the wall. I bought this picture last week. Isn't it adorable? Someone wrote 'baby Stuart' on the back of it but I can't find out anything about it. Does anyone know the real name of this little guy? I framed it with an old pink papered frame. It is so pretty. It is embossed with roses.
Of course my personal body guard is always here to help me. Sssssshhhhhhh
Well, that is what I have been up to today. I have decided to combine this with White Wednesday. Don't forget to check out more White Wednesday fun over at Faded Charm hosted by Kathleen.
If you saw the rest of the house you would just shake your head. Oh, it's ok, Don does it all of the time. At least he does it with a smile:)He just looked over my shoulder and called me a 'blogging maniac'. That's just crazy talk!
I will be over to see your White Wednesday.
'Till next time......

Hi Debra, Happy (early) White Wednesday. I am sure they have some English bull dogs (yours is so cute). Watch it tonite as it ends tonite. I did a little rearranging today too after I brought out the fat Easter rabbit. I couldn't wait to put him out. Love your collection of frogs. xoxo P.S. Let me know when you blog about the light switch cover. I would love to read about it.ReplyDelete
Love all your rearranging. Everything looks so beautiful. That rose wallpaper is gorgeous. I agree with you that my baby basket would look good full of decorator pillows. Talk to you soon.ReplyDelete
Love your solarium and the wallpaper, I just love English Country and anything with cabbage roses. I get the itch to redo this time of year too, and your frogs are wonderful! Have fun and keep it up, you maniac!ReplyDelete
Wow - what an amazing frog collection!! Some of those I haven't seen before. I use my frogs to hold old family photos here and there. I look for the silver ones! That dog of yours is so cute! We call that pose "frog butt"!ReplyDelete
Also, that first photo with the angel's snow hat is great!
I love your solarium...I love seeing pictures of your home!! The wallpaper is very much like what I have in my den. And I love the paper covered frame around the new painting...it makes it look so much bigger!!ReplyDelete
I am happy that you did some constructive things while it is snowing. We have had snow since the beginning of December and I can't think of much I've done but complain! lol!!
Love your puppy!! :-)

Love the picture you got last week, very cute.
Isn't redoing things the best?

Your husband and mine could get together and talk about their crazy blogging maniacs. I think there's a few of us...lol
I looks like your time was well spent. Simply beautiful. Love the wallpaper.

Oh I just love all of your amazing treasures. I would love to move stuff around and decorate, but Dora & Sponge Bob just won't stay out of the living room. Guess that's why I'm doing my bedroom. At least I can have one room that is pretty! LisaReplyDelete

Hi Debra ~ReplyDelete
I go to the Flea Market in Wallingford. Im not sure of the name but its an outdoor and they are not open all the time. But I live so close that I will stop in if I notice its going on. Its right next to the Oakdale Theater. Let me know the day you are thinking of and maybe I can check it out & meet you there. Its really junkie but you can get some really cpol things on a good week.
Hi Debra! I just found your blog and I'm just oooohhhhh-ing and ahhhhhhh-ing! Yummy!! That wallpaper in your livingroom is giving me palpatations! Lol! Can't wait to read more. BTW that sweet Stuart baby portrait you have is of Henriette Anne. She was the the daughter of Charles I of England and grew up to marry King Louis the XIV's brother. So "Stuart" was her last name *winks* And what a beautiful baby she was! Lookin' great on your wall! Well I'm off to read some more......VannaReplyDelete
Love the tired puppy dog! I too have a frog collection, arn't they wonderful?ReplyDelete
