Wow! What a Week!

It's been a whirlwind week with so many things going on.

I don't know where to begin.

My son and I have had rehearsals every night this past week.

Opening night of Willy Wonka was Friday, so the week-end was full of shows.

Friday night, after the opening show, a party was scheduled.

The kids had worked so hard and were ready to unwind.

They had a lot of fun being together and dancing the night away, or at least till midnight.

On Friday I was surprised with this sweet gift from a friend.

These are little wooden candle holders.

She had gone to a garage sale that morning and found these little guys.

Apparently an elderly gentleman in his 80's remembers his mother using these on birthday cakes when he was a little boy.

I've never seen any like them.

What a fun find!

On Sunday we decided to take the plunge.

After 22 years, we decided to buy new furniture.

My couches were blue but they were hidden my white slipcovers.

I do miss the white slip covered couches as white just brightens up the room.

But the prices for new pretty slip covered couches were a bit spendy.

Now, I will slowly be re-decorating the living room adding new pieces of old things here and there.

The books in the first picture found there way into the living room as they are the same colors as are in the new couches.

Ok, so you can see where I've got a lot of work to do.

I always felt I could go either way with decorating as I love these great colors as well as white.

The couches are so comfy I know I'm going to enjoy them.

Well, that's all for now, I'm off on a field trip today.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hi Debbie! Your new couches are gorgeous! Mine are very similar in color. Funny how our tastes change...and I was wanting to go lighter, but all of my friends are telling me to keep my neutral palate. Your room is so pretty and you have some wonderful pieces on the walls. When you are done, drive to California and help a sister out. tee hee.

Get some rest.....

The new set looks very inviting, for a good read or chat and coffee with your friends.

I really enjoyed seeing the vintage B-day candle holders. I too have never seen any like them before.

I hope the play is a fun event!
Sweet wishes,
