What a Wonderful World...and it's all mine!!!

So.... recently dear readers... I mentioned that the gorgeous one and I are making 
some new purchases for the home. Yes, it's a big deal because we're not the kind of people
who rush out and buy new furniture at every change of a trend. I know, I know, y'all have 
the impression that we're cutting edge, dedicated followers of fashion and up to the minute 
chic... sadly, we're not. We're just a couple o' old fuddy duddy's who enjoy our comfort 
and as Gorgeousness likes to say... "if it works, why change it?"
because it's fugly!! that's why!!!! 

So in our quest to update some of our living space (that's an HGTV term, dig it) we 
have been searching high and low.. online, offline and in some cases, way outta line!!! 
I have come across some wonderful little hidden treasures in my quest for beauty
in my surroundings... for example if you're looking for counter stools go no further.
I think once we get into the realms of updating the kitchen with an island or peninsula
this will be our first port of call. I will have more on this site soon, so check back with me later. 

Also while in search of all things lovely and decorative I have actually come across
some lovely new blogs... and some of them are even Southern! yay. So I have
been busy visiting them and commenting and following... I'll be doing a post on new
blogs I've discovered somewhere in the not to distant future. 

Once I have some photo's of the new improved Chez McGillicutty I will gladly share 
them with you. For now it's suffice to say that I am drowning in all the preparation...I think 
this is the first time ever I have had to empty all my drawers (stop it!) and have the 
room totally clear for ALL NEW FURNITURE!!!! It's exhausting so when I collapse 
on that nice new comfortable mattress I may just sleep for a freakin' eternity!!!!!

Oooooh! Jealousy sets in... I got new furniture when we moved to the ranch. Glad I got to do it once - I think that was the end of it with Shane! The then new kitten ruined the butter colored leather couches with his back claws and my old dog (God rest her soul) chewed up my bed foot board...Trying to get to the evil cats, I'm sure! Have loads of fun! I did!

Kitchen/bar stools are a pain in the neck to find - we looked everywhere for ones that looked nice but didn't cost more than an appliance. Andy finally came home one day with ones he saw in Bed Bath & Beyond for $30 each. They look great, match the decor and fit the budget! Sweet!!!

how fun !!
I have redecorated so many times because we move so often....well, and because I did freelance interior design for a few years in indiana.....but anywho, have the best time and make sure to give me a shout so I can see the new digs....

Decorating, or in this case, redecorating is exciting, and can be challenging. And exhausting. But the reward at the end is worth it. I hope it all turns out nicely for you.
