And that brings me to the topic of my blog. There have been a lot of sleepless nights of late. On one such night, I think a great idea came to mind. Do you find yourself at every season photographing the same areas of your home? I am so guilty of that as I have very little wall space.
This is one of those areas in my home. This red cabinet is sitting on a white cabinet Mr. P. had made for me years ago, Here it is decorated for Christmas,
Here is another photo this time all decked out for Halloween. Okay so you get my point. Well I have wanted a fireplace in my kitchen forever. My kitchen is rather small and I thought there was NO way I had anywhere to put a fake fireplace.
Well ,bring on a sleepless night. I way laying in bed thinking about my Christmas decorating and BOOM,,, there is was right in front of my eyes. Get Mr. P. to make a fake mantle and put it right where the cabinets were sitting. The red cabinet could hang over the fireplace.
I was so excited to share my great idea with the mister when he came in from work the next day. I told him exactly what I wanted. Being the wonderful man he is, out came his tape measure and a few days later...... yes I had my new fireplace for the kitchen. Guess that proves there is always room for something if you want it bad enough, huh?
So this year I have a new place to decorate and to share with you. Are you ready?
Yes, I think I had the perfect spot. Looks so different than the cabinets that were there.
And with the red cabinet hanging above it. I still have a little decorating to do on the cabinet, and I have to add my greens. But I am so proud of my new fireplace. Also brought a smile to my face as I have not felt like getting out and shopping lately. I didn't have to leave home and got something new that I love.
I sure have missed meeting Holly and Darbee Rae everyday after school and going for lunch, shopping, and sometime just hanging out at their house. They rode out one day this week and we had a snuggle day. Darbee Rae was so excited. She had to bring her new snowman p.js and we watched a Christmas movie. She and Holly even brought popped corn. Sure was good to spend some time with my girls. So hoping soon I will be good as new and can resume the lifestyle I had a few months ago.
Well that's all on this cozy Friday night. Wishing all of you a great and safe weekend.
Until next time...........
