Today I am over at Design OCD helping to celebrate her 200th post! You are going to enjoy Jae's blog plus you can take a look at her newly remodeled kitchen which was just photographed for Better Homes and Gardens. Uh huh!
I am talking about a favorite piece in my home plus my favorite room.....curious? Go here to read.
I never thought of celebrating a blogging milestone other than the yearly one so this opens up a whole other reason to uncork and whoop it up for a significant event. Let's see........... this will be
# 374.....that means one more makes an even number. Wine for everyone :)
On to a more serious subject. How can I even begin to thank you for your support with my project at the UMCH. I am completely humbled that you donated....over the internet to a stranger! Obviously you have not been warned enough about how dangerous that can be!!!
I almost have enough for the addition off the back of ..........just kidding people. Look I am trying to be serious but I have always been one of those people who laughs at awkward situations.
I mean it...love everyone of you and hope I can make you proud.
Here is what has transpired about my space. Graciously, MGBW have donated a sofa and 2 chairs. I know....can you believe it?
Here is a picture of the sofa
And the two chairs
Yup...it is nicer than my own :)
Some of you expressed that the furniture already in the space is the best and most durable choice. I get that. But....since I need to be responsible [using some of y'alls money you know] then it is less time and money I have to spend making over what is already there.
The fact that these boys are homeless and have grown up in shelters makes it even more important that they have a nice space and hopefully it will help them to make greater efforts toward achieving a better life.
That being said it is not a decorator show house or a competition.....I will do my best to make the room functional and comfortable for them. FYI....last year I raised about 2000.00 and spent an equal amount of my own money. It was worth it!
The other day I was putting together a plan for another project...which we decided against but I am still loving it......
Probably because it is fall and these fabrics are all warm and cozy right? Oh well...I will try to push it on someone else....cause that is what I do. I am your "neighborhood pusher".
One last thing...I do not understand flags on your cars? You know....during football season.
