THIS WEEK




I am not gonna lie....this was one crazy week.  I lost 2 days because of a short trip to Chicago to escort my husbands Dad to a doctor visit.  He is almost the picture of health at 94.  

I do have a little problem though.  This decor.



If this is what I have to look forward to in my old age I am protesting right now.  No sir.  Not acceptable.  They have 30 years to update this crap  before I get there or they will have one cranky bitch to deal with.

 In other news I have a client who needs 6 DR chairs so I went to Home Decorators to check these out....for color and comfort.


I was surprised to find these would work!  She has a couple of parsons host and hostess which will be upholstered in one of the patterns to go with the wallpaper.  Neutrals....surprise.


While I was there I looked around and saw these candlesticks.....

And jars.

I also took a stroll through Renaissance Tile for selections on a project.

Love these concrete tiles for the floor in one room which got the OK!

And last....since the ORC reveal is coming up I might as well tell you how hanging the curtains went down.  Normally I DO NOT participate in this activity.

There are so many factors that can go wrong....getting them level....too many holes with drywall and then wood....it can put me in such a mood that there is not enough wine in the state of Georgia to offset it.

You don't know the "ex bunny".  We have a saying around our family called "Maggie World".  Everything takes 5 minutes and is no problem.


We had 3 of these poles to cut.

We started with this tool....

After 15 minutes of trading out the job cause our arms were burning we switched to this one....
Yeah.....we got this.  

Well we might as well have been using a butter knife....
I walked away no less than 5 times cussing....texting my installer to see if he was anywhere near to offer him WHAT EVER HE WANTED TO COME AND FINISH THIS JOB.

Meanwhile the Maggie was laughing the mean laugh like she was enjoying my pain.

Happy Halloween

I hope your FIL is okay. Today's post got me chuckling. Fortunately, you got those curtains up! Can't wait to see the big reveal next Wednesday. I know the room will turn out fabulous!

Let's partner up and start a hospital decorating service! I've spent way too many hours in those halls thinking the exact same thing. So depressing!

It is snowing here so I am Capissedoff but this post made me laugh. I tried putting up the simplest curtain rod ever today and of course it resulted in a lot of cursing and it's still not done.

I can appreciate your enthusiasm to diy a window treatment installation but I would never consider trying that myself. Glad they are up. Lesson learned.

Ooohhhh. Been there. Youch. But I bet they look great, and you can now do a whole lot of patting yourself on the back.

Oh yeah, speaking of decor in offices and places - OMG, do you ever watch Turner Classic Movies... the set where they sit and discuss the movies makes me want to rip my eyeballs out... It's so awful, they need an intervention... Of course you won't know what i'm talking about if you've never watched that channel...

Great finds at Home Decorators! I wish they had a location near us! I am always second guessing myself when I recommend Home Decorators items I haven't seen in person.
