Don't Blink

Don't Blink, Loved Ones, or you may miss the few minutes when my living room is clean and decorated!
Wall colors: Bamboo and Aqua, repainted the diamond estate sale decor because they were a chipped and coated the 1930s black serving tray with chalk paint so I can write welcome/holiday messages when people come over!


I feel so sophisticated. So chic. So Auntie Mame!



Life's a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!
 With that in mind - Am going to try my hand at at least one Well Dressed Desert tomorrow!

  6. Quite zippy & fun! After writing all of those advice columns this is the perfect place to relax...now, because you've showed us auntie mame....we HAVE to sing "right now we need a little Christmas...right this very moment....." don't remember if it was in the original, but it was in the one with Lucille Ball :)

  7. Thanks Jori, Jane and Lance.

    Hubby said the papasan chair had to go... until he saw the kitty so happy inside of it - we now call it the kitty bowl.
