Turning 100...

Hi Blogbuds,
Today is my official 100th post, and I must say that this has been a wonderful experience for me! Back in December, I was so nervous about starting this 'blog-thing' -- but I was so inspired by so many of you and your wonderful blogs, that I thought that I just must dive in. I am so happy that I decided to do so. You have inspired me with your stories, both personal and decorating-wise, shared your pictures, your families and friends, your ups and downs. Many of you love TS shopping and redos as much as I do, and you are so much better at the redo!!! More inspiration and ideas-- thank you. You are all an amazing group and I am so happy that I have gotten to know so many of you. So here's to the next 100!
Speaking of TS, I got an email yesterday that there is tons of furniture at Bryn Athyn today, so before I make some sales calls, I must run up there! We are expecting thunderstorms (AGAIN) today, so I'm thinking I better go on the way, rather than at the end of the day. Maybe I can pick up some new goodies! Just the thought is making me salivate. LOL.

So, I mentioned last week that I tossed out my old loveseat (still have the black/blue marks to show for it!) I moved my desk down to that space and it opened up the area in my bedroom so it doesn't feel cluttered.

By the way, I've already changed this lamp out to another one, but haven't done a pic yet. So that opened up a corner where I placed my old painter's chair.

I just don't have the heart to repaint it -- it is the original red and the original chippies from someone's years of hard work, so I am leaving it as is.

Oh, and I received my new table cover from one of my favorite places:

Of course, Mr. Hairy Fat Lazy Furrball thought it was the perfect place for a quick nap. By the way, you can see my office/work stuff is sitting along the walk in the dining room. Because of the placement of the cable cords and such, I work at my DR table every day. Haven't figured out a way to disguise the printer, the office phone, etc. If you have any ideas, share them! I"m open to any and all ideas!

I love this color and it is a nice change from the black/beige.

So that's it for today-- I'm off to start my day. I hope yours is great!
