What Not to Hang

I was blessed to be raised in an immaculate home. My mom actually enjoyed cleaning, and took pleasure in forcing that joy upon us kids. I of course now am grateful that I learned to clean at an early age. It is comforting to sit in a clean home and just enjoy your family. But there is one talent that my mom possessed which definitely did not get passed down to me. She has an eye for design, and every nook and cranny in her house is decked out in gorgeous manner. My house however, is certainly a work in progress.

My friends have seen a need to assist me . They keep an eye out for objects that would look good in my home when they are on their own shopping endeavors. They then call and tell me where to go and what I have to buy. I appreciate this no hassle approach to shopping. This beautiful Families are Forever plaque was a result of such a tip.

I now face the dilemma of how to place the shelving around it. Hence the paper cutouts of shelf forms that I happen to possess. I have tried several different layouts, and still have come to no serious decision.

When Chet came home for Lunch today he decided to help me out. And so below we see a man's take on what a decorated room should look like.

Is anybody in need of a GATOR fan at their house. Mine seems to be getting in the way.

That's funny.
I don't particularly want a Gator fan ... but DARN! come on, that's good.

I know how you feel. I have a New England Patriot fan that gets in my way all the time. You just have to love them and remind them NOT to spike the baby when watching football.

That's funny! Fun blog--I can't believe how much Camden is growing up. He's so cute!

Luke's surgery was for all the strep throat and that his tonsils are so swollen all the time that he doesn't sleep well.

Garth once threatened to turn a Idaho State University "Bengals" football helmet into a lamp for our living room! I feel for you. :)
