Shug...My Steps of Faith

Shug...My Steps of Faith

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Good morning!  I woke up during the wee hours of the night, to the sound of Thunder.   This made my night restful.

We have so much to be thankful for, here on the last day of July, 2014.   Our temps for yesterday ended up being in the 80's and the weather guys are predicting the same for today.

I took my dad for a drive through the country side yesterday, and he just kept saying over and over......gosh, the grass is green.    Our area has been fortunate enough to have received several nice rains.....lately.


Green ...... all around


Such an unusual July......but, you want find me complaining!!

Enjoy your day...

Decorating Styles......???

There are so many simple ways for me to bring tons of happiness to my life.    Take for example.....Our Home.

My style of decorating is filled with all  kinds of things that I love!!  First and foremost....are the photos of our family.  There are so many adorable frames out there, and I always try to select a frame that enhances the photo that I have chosen to use.

I love seeing the smiles on family faces and I it makes me giggle when I see the sometimes quirky poses that we all come up with when we take pictures.   

I would never be so selfish to decorate our home in a way that pleases only me.   After all......Sam lives here too, and it is very important for a man to feel comfortable in his own home.  

We both are crazy about antiques and we have spent many hours together collecting all kinds of items that we can use in our home.  It's very interesting how we all have our own decorating personalities.  

I am not one who cares for the new "Modern" look and I'm not super crazy about lace and the more "Victorian" look.

I suppose that what my style would be is just down right
simple and old. 

I made some purchases several months ago to add to the decor in our home, but I somehow forgot to share them with you....


A lighted arrow!!!   Several  months ago, I went on a search for an arrow like this and I was so disappointed when the only one that I found was way too expensive.   

And then.......right before my eyes, this gorgeous RED arrow appeared at one of my favorite stores, right here in Chandler.     Yes....."Chandler Feed and Seed" had this very arrow displayed on one of their shelves.   It is made out of tin and it has been distressed in a red paint.   


Sam found this Red fold up kitchen stool for me at a nearby antique shop....   $45.00!!   My heart skipped a beat when he brought it home!!


Here is a sneak peek of .........


EAT   sign!     Oh my.....I knew I had to have this one for my kitchen!!    Shug's kitchen is always ready to feed anyone who walks through the backdoor!!


Just another one of my baskets that I am filling up with MORE  rolling pins and old kitchen gadgets.   I already have a lot of these kinds of things, but as you can see, I have plenty of room to do a little more antique shopping, in order to fill this lovely basket...

And now.......I'm    ISO  some old chairs.....

I feel confident that I will find them!!

What kind of decorating style do you have?
There are no wrong or no right ways of decorating....

It's all about what makes you happy.

Oh happy day....

Shug ~

IN DANGER OF BEING EXTINGUISHED BY A GUST OF
WIND FROM NOWHERE, AND YET, AS THEY FLICKER
