My New Room

















You may or may nor know this about me but decorating is NOT one of my strong points! As a matter of fact, I HATE doing it but like doing it at the same time! Unique huh????
Anyway, my bedroom has been a blah white and nothing on the walls for over a year and I have been dying to do something with it. So - while my husband and girls were gone to IHC, I went to work. I emptied the room and painted the walls yellow which I dearly love. I also found the perfect, to me anyway, border to go along the top. I bought the curtains at Walmart, bought the frames for the pictures and hot glued the ribbon to them, added the flowers to other ribbon for the tiebacks and presto - done. I already had a blue and white striped comforter, yellow bedskirt (of sorts) and white sheets. I also bought a new cd player, alarm clock and am personally thrilled with the end result!!!! I have since added a candle holder to one wall that is black (although it may not stay that way) and a small oval mirror to another wall that has a ribbon as its hanger! So - this is a small insight into my decorating "skills" but I am happy and Dave was quite surprised. As I was outting stuff away, I threw a bunch of stuff out and reorganized a bit and that made me feel even better! Let me know what you think - positive or negative - I can take it!!!!!!

Leah I don't know if you would remember me or not the Gerard's that attended the Weslyan Church when Bro.& Sis. Hobbs were there in Dayton, Ohio. Our girls Sarah, Ruth and Becky(Rebecca)attended the Academy when you were there.
I just wanted to let you know I found your blog of course through another. I have noticed you on other blogs as well but when I seen this on your blog about decorating I had to let you know that your decorating is great. I myself enjoy decorating. If I had your email address I would send you some of my creations. It is a lot of fun. I learned to decorate just by what you did just jump in. I got ideas from magazines, books, pictures, and etc. You gave me an idea for my blog.
www.gramgram-eileen.blogspot.com I don't know when I will be able to get the blog done with that idea, cause I am getting ready to go to Florida the 31st. Any way I just wanted to say great job. Have a Blessed Day!

Leah, I love the decorations. I think that your room looks GREAT! I loved the picture frames...great idea. You see, I hang my pictures with ribbon to, for being on the mission field, and using a rented house (and not wanting to mark up the walls), you do what you got to do. ;) But I love ribbon on picture frames.. and you did a great job with yours.

Sorry that David has to be away...I know that that is NOT easy!!! Glad you get to see him soon.

Love, Heather =)
