Makeover Monday #1!!! with Rustoleum..

Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!

Over the weekend I begin updating the hardware in my house but being that I'm cheap frugal monetarily challenged resourceful I decided that I didn't want to go out and replace every doorknob in the house.  

A few years ago I replaced a few knobs changing the style of the handle and never finished it got too expensive to pay 30+ dollars for every knob. I have eight interior doors in my house and I replaced half of them with new knobs.

 I really wish that I kept the old stuff, just goes to show you that you show never getting rid of anything! (OK, ok I'm calling Hoarders Anonymous right now.)

This is what the doors looked liked  before.

My Very, Very First Post Ever!!

Alright this is it.  I'm all in. I am inspired to be creative. Right. Right??

Here goes nothing! 

I have thought for a very long time about beginning a blog. I have read numerous blogs for a long while (my favs so far Mama Laughlin, Young House Love, Miss Mustard Seed, Southern Hospitality, Perfectly Imperfect, Decor And The Dog to name a few but there's so many more!) 

I've been influenced by a number of trends and people.  But I finally decided I wanted to be on the other side..


What would I blog about? 

Would anyone actually follow me ?

Would anyone care what I have to say?

Then I realized what the heck, even if it's just me writing to myself as a way to chronicle this life of mine, I'm going to dive in and do it. Who knows? Let's see where it goes. Wanna come too?

That brought up even more questions.. 

Will I have wings? 

Will I stumble and fall?

I think I'm funny, will they?

Can I write posts that appeal to an audience of more than just me?

Can I even write all???

You see where this is going. The answer to all of the above...yes (well I hope it's a yes to the last two questions, you'll let me know right? Be gentle with me).

So stay tuned and watch this journey of mine. My plan is to take you on this roller coaster ride show you what interests me. Decorating my home, cooking for my loved ones, creating how-to projects.  I fully expect that this blog will evolve over time as I find my way through and I'm hoping that you will be there along for the ride.

So welcome, I would love to get to know each of you and for each of you to get to know me.

Let's get this party started!!

Hugs and Kisses,
P.S. How did I do?
