Josh's parents (Nanny & Papaw) came to visit last weekend and Josh and Papaw built the boys' bunk beds ( 3 beds in all) with a desk.
They had to kinda build the beds in the room because the bed was so big.
Josh working on the beds.
Taking a break before we started painting. Nanny & I painted the beds......what else......Yellow and Green!

Parlez-vous français? Even if the answer is no, you can confidently say your home does! French Eclectic somehow manages to be both formal and casual, classy and unassuming at the same time. You like your spaces to feel inviting from the moment you (or your guest) opens the front door and this feeling should continue even after you've entered your most formal room.
Even though there are French antiques here and gold details there, the rustic country elements provide a balance and warmth that seems to say, "come in, relax and stay a while." Your love of antiques leads you to flea markets, garage sales and hours of eBay hunting.
Here is my results........
67% French Eclectic
16% Nantucket Style
WOW, The French Eclectic surprised me and it was the majority. I had no idea I liked French Eclectic. The last two were not a surprise......only I would have thought that they would be a bigger percentage.

When my family woke up on Valentines day.....everyone got a card and a mug with heart shaped chocolates in them from me.
My husband got me a card that you don't throw away and bought me these two signs. The first speaks for its self, the second he says is because he says I never want to go to our hometown, of course, I do though. I Love these signs. I Love you too honey.
How does the sign look grouped here? I think I really like it with the clock.
Lastly, I wanted to show you a picture of my husbands new Big little toy. Yep, it's the TV in the middle!

Your Cupcake Says You Are Lovable
At parties, you tend to be laid back and even a bit shy. You are an observer.
You have absolutely no restraint in your life. You live life with reckless abandon.
The most important thing in your life is love.
You are laid back, flexible, and easy to get along with. To know you is to care for you.
