Pink Christmas

Since I have a pink flamingo theme in my dining area, I decided a white tree with flamingo ornaments would be perfect, I found several flamingo ornaments, and even used some to make napkin rings. I had bought a Christmas Story leg lamp a few years ago, but i put my own spin on it, love it at Christmas time. I love the big flamingo, I placed some wings on it for Christmas, it is so vintage looking, and is meant to be outside, but I just love seeing it indoors.I recently had re- painted the table legs bright pink,with  a pink metallic pearl glaze, and it really set off the mosaic table top I did several years ago. The table legs were given to me by a friend, and were used on a different table (you will see it in the dining area banquet from and old post, if you scroll way way back., we moved the dining area to a different area in the house, so we have a great view of the lake when we eat. We spend a lot of hours sitting in the comfy chairs watching the lake action, if we are not on the water or the porch !

Another kitchen remodel

Yes, I change my mind..a lot..  If you scroll down thru several pages of posts to "Kitchen Re-model, you can compare with these pix. The marble floors in the kitchen had to go..They had dulled over the years..Learn from me, marble does not hold up well in a kitchen, plus it is hard on your feet, and cold in winter..So Don tackled the floors...bamboo this time..Love the darker floor, it sets off the dark trim accents in the kitchen. I have painted the dishwasher and fridge.love them, they were boring beige. I added a little "fairy" door in the back entry, just for whimsy. Then I decided to put some anaglypta textured wallpaper up for my backsplash, to see if I want some real tile backsplash.. I didn't prime the paper, I just dry brushed metallic paint over the paper.. DONE ! I like how the white headboard I hung in the back entry shows up better..as well as the pink shutters on the blue wall. Bermuda Bay blue with a glaze of white pearl paint.. OH the shimmer is so wonderful !

Bad Bad Me !!!

I have been so bad not to have been blogging.. It is shameful that I abandoned it.. I must blame Face Book... it has sucked me in.. time to get back to blogging/ journaling .. So many projects have happened in the past 2 1/2 YEARS.. Oh MY.. and changes made at the Happy Shack, new projects.. so take a peek , scroll to your hearts content ! I must say, I am not a true blogger in the sense that I don't really promote myself, I just do it more like a journal with pictures..and that is fine with me..  Thanks for looking !
