How To Cover A TV...

This comes from the blog Color me Happy.
What a great idea and way to cover a TV... if the only place you have is over a fireplace.
Well I have just this problem.
I am thinking I can do this with a great mirror as well.

Giddy Up

Howdy all!!
I am so excited tomorrow Tony and I have been invited to a
"Wild West Party!"

It is a costume party...the first costume party I have been too in years!
I am sooooo ready to let loose... and have fun.
The winter has been long, the move is taking forever, and living in a 400 sq hotel room is now offically fun.

Tony is going as a Saloon Bartender... I hope every one is dressing up.
I would hate to walk into the party and be the only in is tough when you are in a new city making friends.
I know if I was to have a Wild West Party back east.
All my friends would dress up and would have a laugh at doing so...
So fingers crossed.
Tomorrow we do not look like Wild West Idiots!

Busy Valentine's Weekend!

So it has been a busy weekend here!
I am trying like mad to get into the house.. even had CeCe priming the stairwell!
In her Mid west gear.
The boots kill me!

I dashed out To Rona to look at lighting , plumbing etc....and was shocked that it was so great!
I have never been there before I loved looking around!

While back at the ranch Big T was painting.
Yes we painted out the sickly green ceilings...ugh!

I am wanting to paint the stairs a crazy color.
I know...hard to believe for the gal that only dreams in white.
I was thinking of Palladian blue HC-144 or black...hmmmm.

Ok ...can we talk Homesense...I bought the chandelier above for 80 bones ..steal!
And two of these beauties below for a buck twenty five ($125)
Start the car!

(shower tile)

Went and picked out tile for the bathroom which looks just like the kitchen picture below but worse as there is only floor joyces...yipes!!

(floor tile)

Our Kitchen
Dear Gawd....when will I ever get out of this hotel room.

Ran over to Urban Barn...and clicked away on my phone a few pieces that need to move to Kingsway with me!

I am In ....L-O-V-E with the Rugs!!
Serious big time deep Love!

Speaking of Love... made 26 little valentines with my sweet heart to hand out to the girls tomorrow at school.
Someone has taken to dressing herself.

Happy Valentines Day all!
Make time to tell that special someone how much you adore them!

Style at Home

Such a beautiful home.

I went out immediately to Home Sense and bought the silver compote to place my orchid's in.
So So lovely.

"Style At Home" magazine featured this house I think in their December issue.
I absolutely love every single detail of this home!
Honestly can we talk about the built in bench...Can you say brilliant!

Still on Wallpaper the top picture is wallpaper from Ballard's...
In my best sing songy voice
love it.
I also equally love it in this picture below.
Not sure which Canadian magazine I copied it from.
Gosh memory has been brutal lately.
I am thinking of putting this in my front porch.
