A Little Christmas Cheer

I have learned over the years...simple is better for our tastes. I love looking at homes that are completely done...top to bottom and am amazed by the people and their energy. I have tried to keep up with Christmas decor and for years we had a Christmas village set up with lights and such, but now that everyone is moved out and its just the two of us...we found it exhausting....to put up and take down all the decor. So, simple.
Here is the decor so far out front.....
I bought this new Christmas flag....
 I bought this pillow from Pottery Barn this year....I had to have it! I have such a pup...

 Note...their pillow forms are a unique size...I ended up having to buy it...
And the wreath I've had for years...is getting a little worn...but I still love it....
I have just started decorating inside, but then again it isn't even December yet, so it will happen...and I will keep you up to date....

Almost Good As New

If you have been reading the blog, you know what happens when you spray Lysol on Oil Rubbed Bronze door handles. Yeah, not pretty. And, a very expensive mistake...or at least it can be.
Behold....(as a reminder)

It basically just takes the finish off!
So, I asked you readers what I should use to fix it, not wanting of course to take the set off and take it to a refinisher who would charge upwards of $300 to fix it.....
So, One wonderful reader mentioned, Rub n Buff.....
That was an "Ah ha" moment.....
Except that around here, Rub n Buff seems to only come in gold, brass and patina....not what I was looking for.......
So, I went online and happily I found, Rub n Buff comes in a multitude of colors! Now, they don't have Oil Rubbed Bronze (that's too easy), but they had Ebony (black) which most closely resembles our Bronze color, as it is the darker one.....
So, I experimented on an inside door handle that was very brassy....
And although I am not going to show you the …

A Little bit of This and That

I need to sew, something everyday, or I get grumpy!
Today, it was a pillow....ah.....
I found a cross stitch panel that someone had done, and fell in love with it. It's actually a covered bridge, but it looks kinda like a barn...so I took it home, no idea at all what to do with it.
Today, it hit me....a pillow!
When I went to the closet, I found a pillow form....sweet!!
The panel was almost the right size, at least width wise....height wise it was a tad short. I measured and sure enough it was almost 5" different...so, I went to the closet again and found 2 1/2' strips from another project...perfect! So, I used those on each end....
So what about a backing....hummmm. I love linen. The family room, where this may end up is being painted a taupe grey....so into my drawer where linen lives, and there was a remnant from another project...grey linen....
So, long story short....I literally just stitched it together....and made it an envelope closure...that I stitched closed wit…

New Year's Resolutions....
