Is January Over???? Where Have I Been?

Let me start by wishing everyone in blogland a Happy
start to the New Year!
My year did not start out so great. To make a long story short. On Christmas evening I heard a noise and didn't know what is was, I thought it was my cable box? Then it went away. So, I didn't give it anymore thought. The next morning my son got up and said that the noise was louder!!! So, went downstairs to check. As I was pounding the wall behind a white cabinet and kept moving my hand, I came across a big bubble of water is the wall! and it was dripping. Yes, a pipe had busted and it was leaking! OMG!~ called the insurance........ the rest is still going on!
The insurance cleaned everything, then had to have all the furniture and all my collections moved out. A lot has been done, floors have been removed and new floors are going in along with painting. So, that's what i have been doing these past weeks (not fun). It all should be finished by next week! Thank God!
So, to cheer myself up I put together an arrangement in the kitchen.TA-DA!
I'm working on some things and collecting treasures for the Vintage Market Place. Hope to see all of you there! Mark your calendar, Mar 2 & 3rd.
When my construction is done I will post some pics. It's giving me a chance to redecorate and give my LR a new look! Decorating, something, I love to do.
Enjoy you weekend!


  1. Dear Eloise,
    So sorry to hear about your leaky mess...been there!! Not a fun experience at all! Hope all
    is well your gorgeous kitchen arrangement and can't wait to see pics of your new go girl!!
    Looking forward to seeing you and the girls at TVM!!
    Take care,

  2. What a nightmare! But it sounds like you're taking it all in stride. I guess it does give you an excuse to redecorate, like if you really need an excuse, right!?!
    I'm really hoping to make it to the show in March, I had such a wonderful time at the December show!
    Love your gorgeous display, that birdcage is TDF!!!


  3. Hi Eloise! That's horrible. I'm glad things are getting patched up. Your kitchen is amazing. I love it. See you soon!

  4. Yikes! I hope that never happens to me but at least now you get to re-decorate :) Have a great week!

  5. Oh Eloise, you have been going through alot around your house. It is never fun when things break down or pipes leak, etc. Your kitchen looks nice, and the bird cage is so cool. Have a good week, my friend.
