Yesterday was simply a gorgeous day and so after work I headed home with the mind to do some much needed yard work after dinner...During the raking, weeding and mowing, this little guy...

TAG...YOU'RE IT!

I was tagged by Shirley over at Mrs. Hines Class for a game of Q&A for bloggers...and...since I love blogging so much and since I didn't have much else to do today (although I am at work right now, shhhhhhh don't tell anyone, LOL)...I decided to play along.  Now Shirley is a great lady and has an A+ blog so I'm sure you will want to stop by her class for a visit and take a peek at her answers to the questions posted by Jen.  Now then,...

A NEW RUG...

I was thumbing through the new Pottery Barn catalog a few weeks ago and came across a dining room I would LOVE to copy.  I know, who wouldn't like to copy a room from Pottery Barn?  Anyway, I just absolutely fell in love with one of their American Classic dining rooms and got to thinking about how I could possibly copy it.  My dining room is fairly similar to theirs...similar color, similar windows...plus I have a cabinet similar to the one they show too, and guess what?...

STYLING THE LANDING...

Okay, ever since we painted the landing last weekend I have been dying to get up there and spruce it up a little.  Until now the landing was pretty much bare with the exception of my daughter's vanity table that she no longer wanted in her room.  I hadn't done anything else I guess because I just couldn't imagine decorating something that PINK!

BTP GOT A FACELIFT

BTP got a facelift...Yes, another one!!!  I know, I know, I have changed the appearance of my blog several times and it's only been running for, well let's just say it's one year blogiversary is March 15, 2012.  I guess you could say I change my blog as much as I change things around at home.  Just kidding!   I don't change things at home this much, so why have I changed BTP so often?  There is a reason to the madness...you see
