Veneer grid wall

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

This is a great wall treatment that Katie from DIY magazine finished in just a weekend.
She used inexpensive rolls of veneer to create a stunning wall that looks way more
expensive than the $200 she spent.

Thanks again for all your kind words--they are so very appreciated. 

A better day

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

A very simplified explanation as to my absence--5 weeks ago my mom had surgery. For 5
weeks she has suffered horrible complications that have left doctors perplexed, changing
medications and ordering multiple tests. I have made many trips to my hometown to take
care of her. This weekend, my daughter went with me as we traveled back again. Sunday, 
I had to take her to the Emergency Room--she had simply had enough.
. 5 hours later, we still had no answers. This is very hard to watch at any age, but, when
 you are 16 and that's your beloved Gigi--Maris was heartbroken.

A few hours after a got mom home from the ER, I received a call that my kids dad was clearing
  land on a tractor. The tractor went over the side of a steep hill. They both went airborne and the
 tractor eventually landed on him. It took emergency personnel an hour and a half to get it off. The
 medical helicopter was flown in to get him to a trauma unit. My son was at home, my daughter
 was with me. She was terrified. I now needed to leave my sick mom to drive 3 hours to get my
daughter to her dad...

Unbelievably, he has been released from the hospital. My mom feels a little better and is seeing 
another specialist today. Maybe, maybe she can finally get some answers and some relief. 

I can't thank-you enough for your emails, comments, and most of all, your prayers.  

When it rains, it pours...

2 hospitals in 2 different cities in the same day makes for an awful weekend and not
enough clarity to create a Monday post.

Please keep my family in your prayers.  

Be back soon.

It's Friday!!

What a week! A little spotty on the party posts, but I have a good I'm in Canada!
Visiting my friend, Jen Flores in Toronto!

well, not really IN Canada, but my post is!! Jen asked me to to share a post on her series:


where I am {finally} sharing pictures of my redone guest bath and a special piece of art
that was lovingly made for me by my lovely mama. 

Jen has super great taste with a renovated home to prove it. 

She is so good, in fact, you may have spotted her sharing her skills on TV with this cutie.

Nate Berkus!!

But, better yet, she has also met the Sarah and Tommy, toured their offices, had an interview
 with the duo over a little jealous. 

If you would like, you can check out my post here


And speaking of Sarah, here is what we have to look forward to on HGTV tomorrow!

Enjoy your weekend!
