Susan's Got her Groove Back

Good Evening Bloggers. I finally was able to complete a couple of projects. I thought I had lost all my creative inspiration. I would start something, mess it up and quit!!
But it felt good to be able to create again!
I know its not quite fall, but I have been watching decorating you tube channels about fall decorating and I just had to start my fall projects!! I still have lots to do yet.
I hope you enjoy looking at my projects!!


It's almost Fall You All!! I couldn't wait to decorate!

This is what I did to the hearth of the fireplace. I still have to do the mantle yet!

Tweaking the Shabby Chic Room!

I added this lamp to the corner. I made the lamp shade yesterday afternoon. It was an old lamp shade that I had in storage, so I shabbied it up with roses and lace. The lamp was a four dollar Salvation Army find. It was also in storage.

I re- decorated the wicker coffee table.

This is what I did to the bottom of the plant stand the lamp is on!

This is where I placed the hat box I made a couple of weeks ago!

I have posted a picture of this white cabinet before. It was a yard sale find! It was painted a ugly green, so of course I shabbied it with white paint.

The hat boxes actually hold some hats. A couple I store trim for craft projects! I forgot to straiten the lamp shade. Oh well we all have seen crooked lamp shades before! LOL. I bought the pink afghan at Goodwill quite some time ago, as well as the little pillow in the chair. The lamp was a yard sale find!

Nothing cuter than a basket of pink Teddy Bears!


  1. You're decorations are so cute. Your home is like a warm hug.

  2. You sure have been busy. Your fireplace vignette is adorable. I really like what you did with the creative and cheerful.

  3. Its always fun to start a new home decorating project. I've got one with the same theme, but its been on hold with the long weekend. I love your decor for fall and your pretty shabby chic room. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.

  4. Hi Susan,
    Love your Fall decor on the hearth and now you have inspired me to get started on my Fall decorating.
    Love your shabby chic room too. So cozy. Great idea to stack boxes for a little lamp table.
    Hope you have a great week and fun creating.
    I will be sending an email later today as your little pumpkin ships.

    Hugs and Blessings, Celestina Marie
