Hello Everyone! Oh my did I ever get the scare of my life this weekend. All day Friday at work I felt like something awful had happened and I needed to leave work early. I finally left at about 3:30 in the afternoon. When I got home my hubbie was not home. I thought he had driven down the street to talk to the neighbors. He sometimes does that at about that time in the afternoon. I was going to lay down to take a short nap and the phone rang. It was the hospital notifying me that hubby was on the cardiac observation unit. He had been admitted around around 2:30 that afternoon. I immediately drove back to the hospital scared out of my mind. I did not know what to expect.When I finally arrived at the hospital I was shaking like a leaf on a tree. My husband was fine, they were just observing him. He told me earlier that day he had a weird sensation in his chest. He said it felt like a warm flush went from his chest up to his face. He was also having heart palpation's. The doctors ran every test in the book and could find nothing wrong with his heart. It ended up to be something with his blood sugar levels. I spent Friday night in a chair beside my hubbies bed. If something happened I was going to be there to see they responded promptly. I do not think I could survive without my hubbie. He has been my rock! He was discharged early Saturday after the doctor reviewed all the test and ruled it as a blood sugar problem. Now, for the Happy Mail. I was so lucky to have won Rhonda's give away. She has the Blog A Little Bit of French. When I got home Saturday from the hospital this beautiful treasure was waiting for me. How lucky am I? Eh! Is this not the most gorgeous vignette on this little silver tray. Rhonda included some of the most precious goodies in this give away. I just love the Rhinestone crown and the spoon with the seam binding bow. All her little hand crafted pieces are adorable. I was in heaven opening this pretty package. Please go by and check out Rhonda's A Bit of French Blog and Etsy. It is wonderful!

White The Other Color.

Good Evening my friends! I hope everyone had a truly blessed weekend. The sadness of the tragedy in Boston still looms large. I continue to pray for the Bostonian s, especially the people who lost love ones. This was a senseless act of violence on innocent people.. I have not posted any thing for a week or two on my blog. I thought I would share with you my updates on our guest bathroom. As most of you know I love the browns, coppers and cream colors. I use them to decorate most rooms in my house. The only room up until now that did not have those colors was my girly area. I decided change out the blues decor to the white you see in the photos. This is so unlike me to not have some color in a room. I apologize for the photographs. As I have said many times before I am not a photographer. But I hope they are sufficient to give you an idea of the changes I made. Please ignore the camera thingie laying on the vanity. I forgot to remove it before I snapped the picture. I was too lazy to take another photograph. This guest room bath is so small. It is virtually impossible to take a full room photo. This is the best I could do. I purchased the white rugs on my shopping trip this weekend to TJ Max. I used this long milk glass piece to store face cloths. My favorite is the scalloped ruffle piece that is serving the purpose of a candle holder. I always decorate the the top of the water tank on the toilet. I don't know if anyone else is weird like me or not. If there is a flat space, something is going on the top. I used a lot of my milk glass collection in this re-do. The flowers on the vase are white, for some reason they look yellow. I purchased the bath set this weekend at TJ Max. The metal container holding the products ties in with the silver faucet and the silver shower curtain hooks. The silver is about the only color in this room.

 I plan to do something different with the vignette on this shelf. I just quickly put it together this weekend. Somehow the corner of the shelf is a little beat up. I plan to touch it up with some paint.

This white lace shower curtain moved from our old house with us. I purchased it from Overstock many years ago. It has held up well over the years. It has always been in the guest bathroom at both houses.
This little shell and rope heart was a yard sale find. I just think it looks so delicate and feminine.

 I purchased the towels from T.J Max this weekend. The little shadow box picture is a yard sale find, many moons ago.
