UPDATE ON UMCH PROJECT





Thanks for all of the love on my mantel!  I have more pictures of a few other changes but we will save that for next week.

My cold is better.....had to go to the "doc in the box" on Monday because I knew I would not be well for my event at ADAC.  What I thought was a cold was actually a bronchial infection and you know those only get worse.

 Even though I have been on antibiotics for 3 1/2 days I still look and feel like I just escaped from Betty Ford because of addiction to OTC cold meds.  

I have a few updates for my project at UMCH.  I have raised about 1500.00 so far [thank you so damn much] and am still emailing people that I have not spoken to in 5 years!  

Lucky me I was able to get the painting donated!  Can you believe it....all of that paneling?  It would have taken me forever and I got the best.  

Miguel Castillo [founder and owner] has been in business in Atlanta for over 12 years with 9000 satisfied customers.  I was lucky enough to meet Laura[ his wife] and Lauren [their marketing director] the other day when they came to the lunch that Mitchell Gold had for us.  They couldn't have been nicer.

Please if you are in need of a good and reputable company, I hope you will give them a call.  I don't have to tell you that painting is all in the prep.  Don't forget to tell them Sherika send you!  Hopefully pictures soon......

I also got a rug donated from Myers Rug Company .  I have used them for 25 years....my number one source for Seagrass....and they ship!


I have the floor plan....the paint color is a Martha Stewart/Sharkey Gray.  Got some new overhead lights.

So now I am shopping for the fun stuff like accent tables, lamps, and PILLOWS!

Oh yeah...did I forget to mention that my room has a bath?

Yep...this room might need some love too.  Right now it is also used for storage....

Scooted up to Scott's today for an hour to get a few shots.  I forgot about the new rule that you can't get in before 1:00.  

So I was sitting in my car waiting and all of the sudden I saw people running past me....it was like the "running of the bulls"....I almost strangled myself on the seatbelt trying to get out of my car so I could join the crowd.


First time I have seen these......love.

I did a little guest post on Nantucket Style for Linda at My Crafty Home Life which will be posted tomorrow.  Did you see all the talent from her "Paint a Rug" party? WOWZA.....

You made me chuckle just picturing you jumping out of your car with your seat belt on. Trust me I have done that before so that is partly why I can visualize it so well. What a wonderful thing you are doing and what great companies to donate product,
Happy Weekend,glad you are feeling better!
