Oops!  that should be Leathered . Lol

Not only did the lady leave the library legacy, but lovely leather loungers, as well!!

Clean, uncluttered couch!

 

 

Oops, forgot to take shot of the 2 recliners!  Sorry!  Look just like the couch, except… they are recliners.  Lol, I’m here, Capt. Obvious again!

 

 

My old recliner “Old Blue Bomb” was shot. And needed to be put out of its and my misery.

I was so thrilled when I walked in and saw these 3 pieces! I looked around in disbelief- she surely will be coming back!! She couldn’t be leaving this!!

Sat right down, reclined and body said “ah!” A sigh of contentment! Butt not dragging the floor!!

There is a little bit of damage on one of the recliner arms.

Yeah, this one looks like it needs amputating!  Don’t worry, it’s just a flesh wound!

But I ‘ve got some material to cover that up in a trice!

Real living room furniture again. Yay!!

Now, how do you dye large leather pieces???

Deep, Dark, Depression

Hey! Ever have one of those nights where, no matter HOW much you love blogging, and I DO!!!, you just can’t get in the groove and write??

Yeah, me neither, ha ha silly question.

Alright, I’m gonna be real here.  Tonight, Sunday, is one of those nights.

I just do not have it in me right now to be funny and entertaining.

So, enjoy this still from the play, “Funny Girl.”

 

 

 

I’m sorry.  I feel like I’m letting y’all down, but I promised honesty about my slobbery, and depression is part of my mental, and emotional slobbery.

Oh how I long for the day when my home is clean and organized , and my interior spaces in my head are all calm, and organized!!!

That will be the day!   I’ll probably have to start a new blog.  “How to Handle Life as an Ex-Slob.”  And it will be blank posts.   Bwahahaha, okay, I think that was funny.

Thanks for hanging in there with me, my peeps.  I love you all.

Nother Nicole Night

(Actually it was a day, but that didn’t alliterate, so it couldn’t stay!!  Y’all know how much I ❤ my alliteration!!)

Y’all, I am BLOWN AWAY!!  Nicole is not only nice, she’s AH.MAY.ZING!!!!!

She is an organizer extraordinaire!!   Just wait till you see the pix!  You won’t believe it’s the same house!

Nicole’s Nice

I finally had a few coins jingling in my pockets, so I was able to hire Nicole Ramer from OrganizedByNicole  to come clean and organize for me.   The cleaning took most of her time.   (Hi, remember me, PurpleSlob??)

She is running a special for Polk County, $25 an hour for cleaning.  She just added that to her menu of services.  And, she doesn’t use harsh chemicals!   Baking soda, vinegar, Dawn, and lemon essential oil.  The house smelled so pretty!   It fooled me into thinking she had snuck behind my back, and squooze fresh lemons, and made lemonade!!

 

 

Alas, she had not.  😦

But, it was a good fantasy while it lasted!!

Anyway, this is how you know you’ve had an organizer clean your bathroom:

Did I mention that I LOVE HER????

She knows how to take of the important things FIRST!! lol

Tune in next week, to see what other miracles she performs!!

Help! I was kon maried!  Without my permission!!

OOPSIE!  That’s my unnawear drawer!  Wasn’t gonna show THAT one!

{I hate it when my editor, ME, doesn’t follow my instructions!!}

20151202_184831

Pjs, just the pants.  The tops got their own whole drawer!

20151202_184803

T-shirts.

 

 

 

 

Like a drive by shooting, except it was a sit by folding.

And DD1 is who did it to me!!  Maybe I should take away her allowance??

OR, maybe I need to pay her double???

Decisions, decisions…..

 

Take a good look at these pix.  You won’t see the like again in your lifetime.  In MY drawers anyway!!

 

 

 

Publix Pilgrims

I know, I know.  Thanksgiving was a week ago, already.  But, clearance sales have me thinking about it again already!!

Publix is my favorite store!!   If you don’t have them where you live, I am so, so sorry.   They are only the best grocery store in the world!!!!  First of all, because they are a home town store that made good.  Second, they have EXCELLENT customer service!!  They even followed me around pushing my buggy one time, when I was on the electric scooter, and was buying more than the little basket could hold.   Third, when they have BOGOs, and there is a manufacturer’s coupon, AND they have a store coupon- MAGIC happens!   One time I got a whole cart of groceries, and they PAID me $10!!!   That high lasted a long time!!

Ok, back to my topic, Thanksgiving.  I bought a Pilgrim platter,

20151202_212600

On each side is a Pilgrim, 1 guy, and on the other side, the girl.  So cute!  And matching salt and pepper shakers:

20151202_212524

Uh oh!  She turned her head, looks like she’s mad!  Burnt turkey in the Pilgrim household tonight!

This year, they even came out with the kids’ set, “The Lilgrims”!!!  That is just too precious!!

20151202_212443

 

Look, the girl’s a redhead!  Reminds me of PP, when she was born!!

Okay, now you know what’s gonna be on our table next year!   If you live near a Publix, and don’t have these, run! don’t walk! to get your own!  The salt shaker sets are half off, and the platter was 66% off!!!!   Going fast!

Your table scape will thank you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Library Legacy

So, here I am in my newest “new” place!  I love it even more than my “old” new place!!  (Extra bonus- another place to purpelize!!)

And the owner blessed me with so many things left behind!!

Here’s a biggie:

20151130_072658

I’ve always wanted a library in my house!!  Now, I’ve got it!!  For free!!  (Gift with purchase!)

I’ll even read some of them!  There was a “The Power of a Praying Woman”, by Stormie O’Martian.  Very excited by that one.   Prayer is a powerful weapon, in our Christian arsenal.

And 6 “Amish” books.  Love those!

A half shelf full of cookbooks.  Eeks!  Not those!!  I don’t wanna do the “C” word anymore!!!!!!!!

Then other assorted novels that I will donate.  Yay, me!!  More de-cluttering!!!!

20151130_145629

{This box was packed by PP personally!  She loved throwing the books off the shelves into boxes!  And I loved the help!}

box of books

So was this one. She loves to help!!

 

 

 

De-cluttering is a good thing!

 

 

Sloppy Slipping

Sorry there was no post Tuesday.

You wouldn’t believe what’s been going on.

No?? Do tell!

Well, ok so I moved Sunday, and Monday the rest of the story stuff was brought over.   Then, at midnight, just as I was laying my weary head to rest, my sister called in a panic.

“Raw sewage is backing up in both bathrooms!  The toxic fumes are so bad, I really think we’ll die in our sleep!”

” Get out!!  Do not pass Go, do not collect $200, just get over here!”  Thankfully, I now had a whole empty place to offer to them!  

So, I called DH, woke him up and begged for help.  We gathered linens, and the 3 spare mattresses I have, (THREE!!!  One is PP‘s, so crib size, but still!!)  and went over and turned on the airs.

The only thing I didn’t count on, was her bringing the dog.  Remember that huge beast??  Yeah, and my park has a no dog rule.  So, this morning there was an ugly tempest in a teapot with the neighbors, then a nasty comment on FB.   I deleted the comment,and apologized in a private message.  

What were they supposed to do, in the middle of the night??   Fleeing in fear of their lives???

So, no dog tonight, and all is well…

What do you do with your spare house??
