So much for the list!..and a new project!

Well. the list disappeared! I did not quite make it but I did make a good try at it. No excuses...well maybe one, I did have another cold that really zapped me..the fifth one of the winter, but who's whining?
My daughter has a wedding shower that she is helping with and I finished the favors for the shower over the weekend. I left them for her to varnish. These are a few more finished items for a space in my house that I am reclaiming. (there are these cute crystal drops that go in the candleholders as soon as I varnish them.
AND........this is the space! Now Lesley, if you are reading this, this will be your bedroom at the end of April....don't be 'fraid, I can do it! Well, with a little help from the daughter that enjoys a good challenge as much as I do. We are tackling this project this weekend.

This was my youngest daughter's bedroom when all four girls lived with us. That was a mere 5 years ago, how did this happen so fast? Goodwill, here I come! For several years I have had the thought of having a yard sale and facing reality, I know that is not going to happen, yard sale day comes and all I can think of is collecting MORE stuff.


My goal is to reclaim this space, all white with accents of pale blue and mint green and a light turquoise and to utilize items that I already have to decorate the space. My neice is the inspiration for making this "green" as in recycling green and other than maybe paint...and a few other small items, I think that I can do it!

It does happen fast, I worked on one last night. I have planning a huge garage slae first and whats left is going to Salvation Army. Once you dive in head first it will be sorta fun for you and your daughter and it won't take very long. Have fun.
