Aren't these greeting cards just beautiful! My blogging friend, Nellie of Nellie's Cozy Place blog, had a contest to see who could name the location where these photos were taken and I won. My prize is 6 cards with photos from her son's Appalachian Trail Adventure. They are so beautiful~they could be framed and hung on the wall. Thank you Nellie-I love them!

This is our guest bedroom, freshly painted-still awaiting baseboards and finishing touches...but that means that 50% of our upstairs is done....there is light at the end of the tunnel.

We get our new carpet installed tomorrow in our family room....Yippee!

This is my laundry room and although I don't have any decorations up yet, I hope to find an old-fashioned scrub board and possibly something else for the wall. I love the storage and how big it is!


  1. I love to see how your house is coming along. And the cards look so neat. Congrats on your win! Sending you a hug today. We had rain, thunder and lightening last night and this morning in Phoenix. I was so excited when I woke up at 3:30 that I took a blanket and fell asleep on our outdoor covered porch so I could hear the rain. Crazy, huh? But not much rain in Phoenix.

    Love you,

  2. I just love that blue... it all looks wonderful!!! Keep your chin up, the end is in sight =)

  3. Love the cards, they look so neat. Congrats on the win. Oh my, I love your home. It's going to be beautiful when you are finished. Hugs..

  4. Hi Noreen,

    Love the color of blues you have
    chosen, can't wait to see it with
    carpeting and furniture, it will be so lovely.
    Lots of work, but so gratifying when you see the finished product,
    want be too long now.
    Glad you are getting close to finishing on your painting, that is always a relief. I have been wanting to repaint my family room dining room area a new color, but
    not looking forward to it, plus it want be anytime soon, got to get the bathroom area finished first. It's coming along, but still have lots to do!!
