We Have Babies in the House!

Hi everyone. I hope you all are doing well.  I’m looking forward to fall!  Cooler fall weather!  

As my title says "We have babies in the house" they are actually puppies. My Shih Tzu dogs Skipper and Dixie are proud parents of three pups. One male and two females. They are 4 weeks old today. :)

This is Dixie as a puppy. :) Looks like she is saying “the camera flash is too bright!” lol

Shih Tzu

And here she is with her babies. She sure is a good mama. :) I had her trimmed very short so that her hair wouldn’t get in the way of the puppies.

Shih Tzu Puppies

So precious. Isn't it amazing how they know what to do after each puppy is born? It really is amazing! 

Shih Tzu Puppies

I will keep you all updated on their growth. We sure are going to miss them when they go to their homes.

Y’all have a wonderful day.

Is it Wine O’clock?

I have a friend who says this often, Ha ha!  :D   It’s Friday and looking forward to the weekend.  Why? Just because hubby and I are planning on finishing some painting we had started.   The task of painting is never over for us! 


Have a wonderful weekend full of projects and then relaxation. :)

Decorating with Green Accents.

Hi everyone.  Today I want to share my green decorative pieces I have.  Come on in! 

I like decorating in earth-tone colors and have red as an accent color.  I also like using green.  My colors are brown, gold, green and red. Hmm, I guess I like warm colors. :)

Here I have faux green apples and because it’s summer, I like to decorate with shells. :)


I made this little arrangement using green tone flowers, faux fruit, and other little tidbits. :)


Close-up! What do you think?   I love my little arrangement if I do say so myself. :) I should be able to use it in the fall as well.


Summertime! :)  


More green accents.  I have two faux plants on the mantle.  Don’t you just love faux plants and flowers?  I found the two vases at Hobby Lobby.  Love that place!  The color on the wall is Tobacco Road and I had it mixed at Sherwin Williams. Love this color!

Paint called Tobacco Road

I used faux ferns and feathers. :) They are both from Hobby Lobby. 


Another view of my fireplace area.  The picture is from Kirkland’s.  That’s a great place to find beautiful decorative pieces for your home.  Everything else you see is from Hobby Lobby.


Close up of the vases.  Oh my gosh! I love these! I am partial to decorating with red and green.  Can you tell? :) 


Candles are a great way to add color. :)

From Carpet & Stick-On Tile to Ceramic Tile.

 Hi Y’all!  I hope you are doing great and surviving this heat! It’s hot in my parts of Texas!   We are slowly getting rid of the carpet in our house.  I’m so happy to finally have ceramic tile in the front entrance, dining room, living room, and kitchen.  So proud of hubby for all the hard work! I helped too. :D  We had the peel on stick tile and let me tell you it was a doozy to take it off! 

This was the kitchen and I scraped the old tile off! What a job! Can you see the horrendous carpet?  Ok, maybe not horrendous but I was ready to get rid of it. ha!


After hubby popped the lines to make sure that he placed the tiles straight, he began the task of installing the new tile!  Woohoo!  Hubby!

Fall Creek Suede Ceramic Tile

Look at him work! Looking good hubby! :)


My sweet hubby taking the flagstone off.  What a job!  Kudos to him for persisting and not giving up! lol


After we took off the carpet in the living room, we found the same stick on tile underneath! ugh! More work but we finished!


See that tool on the bottom right?  We used that tool to scrape off the glue!   Hubby was using another tool that scrapes off the tile.  It was so much easier to scrape off the tile with that tool! lol


And this is the tile we decided to use.  It is 18 x 18 and is called Fall Creek Suede from Lowes.  Lub it! Lub it! Lub it! 

Fall Creek Suede Ceramic Tile

Look at the tile now! Lub it!  We still need to add baseboard but it sho is looking good, don’t you think? “wink” “wink” We are also planning on putting crown molding.   The wall color is Tobacco Road and it was mixed at Sherwin Williams. 


I also wanted to share this picture.  This is an accent color we chose from the same color strip as Tobacco Road.  This color is called Dried Tobacco.  Got both mixed at Sherwin Williams.  You can see both colors there.  Tobacco Road looks off in this picture.   But…. I love love how my house is finally coming along!   We will be putting crown molding soon.

Dried Tobacco Paint

Oh my gosh! I love the tile!  The wall color is Tobacco Road.  And you can see the little accent wall with the color Dried Tobacco.  Basically, the whole house is now painted in Tobacco Road with the exception of two bedrooms….the boys’ bedrooms. ha!  I let them choose another color for their rooms.   Next time, I will share what we have done to the house and what a change it has gone thru!
