Here we go......

Hello all!

I have been super excited about starting a blog and joining this crazy world.  I've been inspired from all the beautiful Shabby Chic blogs that I've been visiting for the past month or so much to my husband dismay!

Just to give you a little background on me.  I hail from Pennsylvania just outside of Philadelphia...born and raised.  I'm a married lady with a wonderful husband who spoils me silly.  I have three grown children, one boy who is the oldest and two daughters.  Between the three of them I'm blessed to have six grandchildren and one coming to join this wacky family in August.

We just moved into a new house in July and have my mother living with us in an inlaw quarters and my oldest daughter along with her two children lives in an apartment in the basement.  When we moved into this house every wall was white and I wish I would have taken some before pictures to show the dramatic change.  So it's been a work in progress and seems it will be for a very long time. 

I've always liked a country/homey feel to my decorating and always dreamed of having a home of our own (we rented for years) to do what ever I pleased and we're finally there.

What started this forray into the Shabby Chic'ish lifestyle was a simple search on "How to paint furniture" and it landed me into "My Romantic Home" blog and I've been lost in this world ever since.  So now I am driving my family nuts with wanting to paint all (well almost all) of my furniture white.  I'm in love and every blog I have visited has yielded more and more ideas and technics.

So bare with me as I try to navigate this new world and try to figure out this whole blog thing.  I look forward to making new friends and sharing my finds and my home with you all.

Any helps or suggestions that you all can give me will be greatly appreciated!

This is where you've been hiding! I can see why! I followed your blog link to romantic home & lost about 30 minutes of my time very quickly! Great stuff! Now motivated and have changed my mind on what color to paint my newly returned armoire! Keep up the good work girlfriend! Lots of love! Eve
