Around the House for Pink Saturday 5/1/2010

Happy pink saturday and welcome to my blog. If you visit with Beverly at How Sweet The Sound, you're sure to see lots of lovely pink blogs. I forgot to make note of the ones I visited last week.

I just thought I'd post some pix of things around the house today. I'm so busy doing other things that I pre-schedule these posts for days like this. You can hate me for this, not because I'm beautiful and/or smart. ;-)

Chandelier beads.

I've been thinking of making some different chair covers in white. I'll probably sell these if I do. Anyone interested? Contact me. Four chair covers for a ridiculously low price! Isn't that bouquet of flowers lovely?

Tie back in my bedroom.

Violets remind me of my grandmother. These are the most real ones I've ever seen for being faux.

Tie back in my bathroom.

Little pot of posies on a bathroom shelf.

Gorgeous chicks inhabit this home. Hah!!! ;-)

Home grown rose.....uuuuuhhhh, I mean hand made.

Thumb tacks on one of my memory boards.

Just finished this little sweetie.

Random Thoughts:

I recent was surfing the blogs and came upon one where a woman was so excited about receiving her new cookware. How any woman can be stoked about cookware is beyond me! That's what they have Olive Garden for in my opinion—cooking.

Without patience we cannot please God. This is hitting home with me recently. I seriously am working on it. I am!

The disintegration of rational society started in the drift from hearth and family. The solution must be a drift back. Be part of the solution.

Remember when you found out what your local popular DJ looked like? Uuuuggghhhhh!

I guess we can still embarrass our kids when we're 70 and they're 47 and 48. Our son asked his dad, Love Bunny, a while back if he was going to wear white socks with his jeans when they were going out somewhere together while he was here visiting some months back. Hubs said yes, he was. Son just looked at him as if he were 18 and dad was going to make him look like a geek simply by being with him. Son just said, "Okay." It was funny the way he raised those eyebrows. Son, not Love Bunny!

End of April greetings from Jubilee Furniture!

Welcome! So glad you stopped by to take a peek at what's "new" at Jubilee Furniture. I'm careful to always put the word "new" in quotes - since everything in our inventory is donated and used. So though it's "new" to us, it isn't "new"! Got it? Good, then let's see some of the furniture we added to our 30,000 square feet of warehouse space!

small, wooden, old fashion student desk with chair (chair doesn't match but it's the right size for the desk) both for $40

cream colored changing table for $145 (it's flanked by some white dressers that do not match the changing table)

it looks like two oak bookcases, but it's actually one with six adjustable shelves priced at $195

we picked up many chrome and fabric guest chairs that are in excellent condition and super solid (heavy) - both fabrics are bluish/purplish and I've priced them $35 each. I searched online to see what these chairs might have sold for new and found similar chairs priced at $265 on some super cheap office chair site (just to show you what an amazing deal these chairs are!)

super clean Plunkett sofa for $85 (fabric and style is just a bit dated looking)

Crate & Barrel sofa for $60 - since we have an all sales are final policy and I would rather have happy customers than unhappy ones - here's the low down on this piece. It almost looks like someone washed all the cushions on this sofa and they shrank a little. Can you fix that? I'm not sure, thus the low price tag

these fabric pieces (they sort of look like leather) are very nice - the sofa is a sleeper and I priced it $145; matching rocker/recliner is $125

Ethan Allen sofa for $225

three piece sectional in good condition except for it's faded in multiple area so priced for only $75

vintage TV tables for $15 for the set

love seat for $85 and matching sofa for $115

clear glass top and frosted glass bottom on this coffee table on wheels is fun and priced $95

the one bit of color this week comes from this amazing two piece sofa and each piece opens into some kind of bed (I didn't have enough time to figure out how to open the two halves and I'm not sure what size bed it would open into exactly), but it's so bright and fun just as a sofa! Price? $145

Lots more I didn't have time to take photos of - so you'll just have to stop in either today from 1 to 8 or tomorrow from 9 to 4 and see it all for yourself!


Little Decorated Glass Jars

I just can't seem to throw out a glass jar anymore, no matter how hard I try. I keep decorating them in hopes of selling them soon but I'm so busy I can't seem to find the time to list them somewhere. But it calms me to just sit in my studio and make them. Maybe someday...

And just threw this together. A little shabby chic ragged flower with a covered button. I loved making this. I think I'll wear it on a jacket instead of a t-shirt since I'll just pin it instead of sewing it on.

Working in the Yard 4/28/10

Little eye candy for ya, chicks. This is what my dining table looks like today with all the roses I'm making. These are for sale on my etsy or my selling blog LaMaisonRose. Not expensive at all.

I had Love Bunny home today so he agreed to do some "honey-dos" for me. We bought some stone to "widen" the patio a bit. For two people it should be large enough but with all the stuff we have leftover from our old house it clearly isn't enough room out there. In our old house we had 3 huge patios so when we moved here I had to sell a lot of the wicker and wrought iron stuff. Just too much for here. But I still wanted a bigger patio here after they finished construction but hubs doesn't want to redo the sprinkling system and I can understand that. Hence, we're just adding stones and not interfering with the system.

Love Bunny walking to his shed. Not bad for almost 70 years old, huh? He certainly can light my fire!! ;-)

Could someone please tell me why men have to have shops, sheds and/or storage units for things they will never ever use again?

That bicycle hasn't been used for at least 3 years and then only a time or two but he haaaaaad to have it. It's at least 10 years old now. Sigh...

See those fishing poles up there? I cannot tell you how old they are and he hasn't used any of them for at least 18 years.

And I'm finally getting around to painting this old school desk I bought about a year ago and had stripped. Just a primer coat on top today because it's turning windy.
