Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

Recovering Slower rather than surer!

Man, getting older isn't all it's cracked up to be 'cause getting over being sick is the pits!  I've been struggling with this crud for 2 weeks now and it's not getting a lot better.  Allergies have kicked my butt the last couple of years and this year's no different.  I tried working in the flowers bed a little yesterday and yes, I kept my eyes open watching for those nasty fireants but the sneezing and coughing was just too bad to stay outside long.  I finally retired to the deck with a cold martini, Clarice on a leash and Mark fanning me....ok, that's not all true....yes cat on a leash and Mark on the deck drinking beer but no fanning or cold martinis were in sight.  Dang it!  I slept until almost noon today then got up and cooked a huge lunch of roast, rice, gravy, ect....true southern comfort food then Mark and I took a drive up a new road towards Gainesville that we had never explored.  Wonderful day until my sinuses got the better of us so we came back home.  I've been piddling around working on primming up some of my newest thrift store finds so all and all it's been a great day.

Downstairs Guest Bath

Last Ones-Befores

Afters-Upstairs Guest Bedroom

Small mirror leaning on larger one was the one I replaced in the downstairs guest bath with that wonderful $10 estate sale white framed one....much better!  I could just keep posting pics all night because I'm been tweaking a lot lately but save something for the next post.

Happy Mother's Day to all and hope you have a wonderful week ahead!


  1. Love what you've done with your new finds! I really like that mirrored sconce! Hope you get to feeling better. That martini might have helped!

  2. Isn't it great to find so many wonderful things! Lucky you! I have a bathroom that I have decorated in nothing but silhouettes! I love them! Thanks for sharing your finds and your lovely decor!~ Beth at The Prim Colonial
