Pictures and Plans
Mission accomplished, and I love it!!!!!! How about you?
The previous artwork my sister left as she was touching up the white by the ceiling.
Here is a pic with the brown/yellow/tan, a little bit of orange in the distance from the boys' room and their tree with a tipsy star. :-)
This was my "big" Christmas gift from Troy. I was so shocked and happy that I almost cried. I wanted one terribly but never dreamed I would get it. This clock is quite large and looks wonderful on this wall! Thanks, Troy, you have no idea how much I craved this!!!!

I am finished with the last of my big painting projects, and I am so relieved! Troy was able to help me on the high part in the living room. I had forgotten how nice it is to have someone paint with you! Now, all I have left is a little bit of "touch up" in a few corners and finish some white trim. I will not finish it before the 31st because I have been sensible for once and spent more time relaxing and spending moments with my family. I am also expecting an overnight guest tonight, will attend a wedding tomorrow and am having two families over here Sunday evening. Consequently, lots to prepare, so I really should go! I plan to post a before/after view of the kitchen (after I do my dishes) so you can see how it all looks. I will also try to get a good picture at the wedding of Curtis Going and Jennifer Hester tomorrow. (For all of you GBS folk.)

Have a great Friday evening!

I love the paint! I'm totally with you on having a Pottery Barn house if I could afford it. I have found too many people that don't even know what Pottery Barn is -- that bugs me!:-) Carrie has me addicted to your blog. Keep pictures coming of your house. I get bored with my stuff and need new ideas!

Your home is lovely and reminds me of homes I have visited in the Piedmont area. I loved your "100 things about me." It is very interesting to more about you...

Wow! Love your kitchen and the clock! That is such a great feeling to have your house finished - we're not done yet, but hopefully soon.

All you need to complement the clock is a Big Mouth Billy Bass on that wall.

You're closer to Pottery Barn than you think! You've captured the essence, at least. Everything looks great and I LOVE the clock! I love the PB look too and as I redo things around here, I try to work in more of it.

What is the Pottery Barn? Is that similar to the Ceramic Shack we have around here? Every good decorator knows you need a few handpainted ceramics to accent your decor. What about little elves sitting under toadstools? High fashion

Jody, I am so glad you left a comment; it was good to hear from you! I just received my new "Pottery Barn" catalog and am savoring it! :-) I have some new projects I will be posting soon.

Have any of you gone to HOME GOODS, a division of TJ MAXX? It has wonderful things, too.
