Restyled Sundays #26

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays!

It's been a rough week around here, so once again I am a day or more late getting this party started.
My dad has been in the hospital twice in the last two weeks, and he is still there tonight.
My poor mom is so exhausted, I spent most of the last three days with her at the hospital.
It is truly amazing how tiring it is to sit around and wait. Please keep my dad in your thoughts and prayers and hopefully we will be able to take him home in the next few days.

Now, I really want to say a huge thanks to all of you who shared such great makeovers and finds.
You are amazing!

This gorgeous beauty is from Monica of Decorating Insanity.
She painted it Tiffany Blue and then used a metallic glaze.
 I think the shimmer really sets it off.

Good Time Charlie from Redoux shared another French makeover.
This dresser was on its third life. She sure knows how to bring them back to life.

Tammy at Type A Decorating redid this cool vintage wardrobe
 for her lucky daughter Lauren. I am in love with it.
I have a thing for pink lately, or maybe always!
Laura from Top This Top That shared a tour of her sisters house. These
amazing antique jars are actually old dental medicament bottles that she
found at an estate sale. Of course, being a dentist, I had to feature these :)

Last but not least, Angie from Knick of Time Interiors redecorated
her entryway by painting one wall with chalkboard paint.
 Be sure to check out all of the rest of the decor.
Thanks to everyone else for sharing, I hope you will still share again this week!
Also, don't forget to sign up for the Ramsign Giveaway by
Wednesday, February 29th.

Thanks for joining the party last week. I am so happy to have so many new friends.

You really need to see the before of this beautiful desk.
Cyndi of Blue Star Antiques turned a sad old piece into a turquoise beauty!

Miranda from Pressing On-Miranda turned a outrageously pink room
into a lovely girls room with alot of creative accent pieces. I am crazy about
the embroidery hoops with fabric. The cute shutter headboard is great too!

I am in love with this vintage frame wall that
She has alot of other great makeovers as well.

Thrifting with my mom has made me fall in love with pink depression glass.
The Joyful Thrift found these lovely pieces last week.

I am so impressed with this lamp and especially the shade makeover
by Becky from Generation to Generation. She took a dated formal shade
and made it look vintage and just cool!

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays!

Thanks again for joining the party last week. We had some great entries. I love visiting each

I am in love with this window that Mr. Dump from Dumped and Discovered
painted a rooster on. I have a thing about roosters and I wish I could draw like this!

Sarah from Dumped and Discovered redid this old trunk.
Isn't the yellow awesome. They have been really busy.

a boring old box with paint and graphics. Now its a keepsake to store keepsakes!

china cabinet with ASCP graphite. It sure looks blue in the pictures,

Restyled Sundays #23 (A Day Late, Not a Dollar Short)

Welcome Back To Restyled Sundays

I am sorry I am running so late today, I had planned on getting this party started this morning and got so busy making birthday gifts for my grandson Charlton, I was almost late to his party.   We just got home and turned on the Superbowl and I finally have a minute to sit down and breathe!

Ok, I tried to post this last night throughout the first half of the Superbowl, but my computer would not
cooperate. After running three spyware scans and a virus scan, it is finally a go this morning!
Sometimes computers can be so exasperating!

Well, first of all I want to show you a great thrifting find I have had for a while, but my sweet hubby finally mounted it on the bathroom wall. It was so heavy he had to get some extra strong mounting hardware.
 This is my guest bathroom off  of the kitchen-hearth room.  It is pretty boring and actually on my list of rooms to remodel this year. Well, not actually remodel, just redecorate.  And, I could sure use some ideas.

Some boring builders beige walls and not much else. But I love my new ironwork!

Now lets see what you guys showed us this week!

I love this lunchbox makeover, now a jewelry making toolbox by
Janet at Janet of All Trades

Rachel at Re-Purposed Restorations completed an amazing vanity makeover
and she is a fairly new blogger. I am sure she would love to have you check
out her blog.

Barbara at 21 Rosemary Lane made an adorable but rustic
Valentine Garland. Looks simple, check out her tutorial!

makeover. I am really wishing I had white cabinets. Go see the before at her blog.

Laura from Top this Top That struggled with a bookshelf makeover.
I think she came out on top, and I love the styling!

Sarah at Dumped and Discovered restyled this $5 desk into a
stunning makeover. All I can say is wow, I better start going to auctions!

Thanks so much for everyone joining in!
Let's see what you have to share this week, and so sorry I am late!

My Sweet Princess

Thanks to Alison at The Polohouse, I am showing off my favorite child today!
This is Lady Di. And, Yes she is a princess! And yes, my other 6 children know she is my favorite!
Not only has she never given the grey hairs that they did, she loves me even when I scold her.
Lady is now 6 years old, seems hard to believe, yesterday she was just a puppy!
This is the day we brought her home.
We have a daughter in law who is a veterinarian, who recommended we get a Goldendoodle. They don't shed, they have the temperament of the Golden Retriever, and the brains of the Poodle, and they don't shed. Yeah! We were ready for that after two lab mixes.
 When we bought her from a breeder, she was living in a barn with alot of other puppies,
and she smelled like she was living in a barn.  We had two puppies to choose from, two were
twelve weeks old and two were 9 weeks old. She was 12 weeks old and a little bigger than I thought
I wanted. But as I picked up each of the four puppies they were all licking me and squirming around, except for Lady. She just laid her head on my shoulder and whispered 'take me away from this place'.
How could I ignore that?  So, home with us she went!
I couldn't wait to give her a bath ( I think she was hoping for one also).
She obviously didn't belong on a farm. She was royalty after all!

Here she was taking her first bath. She fit in the kitchen sink!
She was ready to cuddle after she was all cleaned up.
And, here she is today! Doesn't she look like a princess?
Of course she has to get dressed up by my granddaughter when she comes over!

I am not so sure she likes that part, she thinks she is pretty enough with out the pj's!
She loves to look out the window.
Gotta keep an eye on those squirrels!
This was a rare camera shot of her looking straight at me.
She avoids the camera at all costs. Drives me crazy!
After her hairdo, she is in the back of daddy's car.
See how she turns her head!
But the best part of all is how she gives me a hug when I come home!

I would love to hear about your little sweetie pie.
