Our fireplace is designed with plaster this gives us the option of painting it or possibly using brick or other product's to embellish it. Well since it had been painted originally we decided to repaint it, but this time with a bold color, needless to say Gary and I are not afraid of color. We painted our fireplace "Blue Metallic". Now I know a blue fireplace may not be for everyone but we really love it and besides its just paint and we can change it anytime.
So come along with me and I'll show you our blue living room.
A footnote to this post....This morning I woke up to someone else in the mirror.... I did, I didn't look the same and when I tried to sip my morning coffee my lips were nub and my smile crooked, also my eyes were very sore. Only one side of my face would move... I told Gary and we thought it best to call the Doctor (of course), even brushing my teeth was weird with all the numbness..
You know how it feels after you have been the dentist and he has given you Novacaine to numb your mouth, well that's how my face feels its nub from under my eye to my lips.
After a few hours in the emergency room I was diagnoised with Bell's Palsy...
Bell's Palsy is a problem involving the nerve that controls the muscles on one side of the face. The cause is unknown we were told. I was given three medications to take..on a good note it will not last forever and will go away..but for now I told Gary no family photos..LOL
I am feeling OK except I am really tired and my face just won't do what I want it to. It looks so weird to raise my forehead and only one side of my face will go up..
Enjoy your week and remember I will be thinking of you all and getting around to visit soon..

The first blanket I would like to share with you is a gift for my little brother, I had knitted him a sweater that turned out way to big, so I thought a blanket was a much safer gift to make.
Carolyn of Just One More Stitch ! I won the yummy sweet Candy Apple bundle fat quarter.
The bundle is from Jodi of Fort Worth fabric Studio. If you have not meant Carolyn or Jodi please drop by for a visit. I know you will LOVE their blogs as much as I do. Carolyn has the most amazing quilt studio I have ever seen. It should be in a craft magazine or Romantic Home magazine and you should see her quilts so beautiful every stitch!
Jodi has gorgeous fabrics the prints and colors are so pretty, its hard to choose wich ones to buy, I LOVE all of them, my mind was whirling around with pattern ideas of what to quilt with all the beautiful fabric choices.. I can't believe my name was picked, I am so thrilled. Now what am I going to make..Well I think this sweet valentine bundle fat quarter will make a fabulous baby quilt. Thank you so much Carolyn and Jodi I Love the fabric so much..

Our kitchen had "Two BIG" problems (can you see what the first one was?) If you guessed that the refrigerator was to close to the wall, well you are correct-o-mundo. Our refrigerator door was to big to completely open it up. I had to squeeze myself into the door and hold it open with my tush just to get inside. You should have seem me..(well maybe not)lol.
Anyway it was quite the dilemma, so with our heads together (yes sometimes after being married 36 years Gary and I share a brain)hehehe, and with the skill of "Paul" our daughter Desire' boyfriend's custom wood craftsmanship, Paul designed the solution...a built in Chalk Board.
