I DESIGNED A SAMPLER AND NEW HOUSE PICS!!!

Hi everyone!...I hope you're having a good week!!...Tim has been home since having his surgery last Friday...He ended up staying in the hospital overnight because he was just slow in waking up...I was getting worried!!..Thank goodness my parents came in from Atlanta and stayed with the kids overnight...I couldn't have left Luke with Taylor overnight and would have been soooo torn between being with Tim at the hospital and home with the kids..But once again thank goodness for my parents!!!....Love ya, Mama and Daddy!!!

And I'm thinking that this week Tim has seen what I go through to keep the house straight and dealing with a teenager and toddler on a daily basis..LOL....It has been nice having all of us home this week other then Taylor's coming and going...I just got Luke to sleep and Tim and Tayor are watching a movie...I will miss the togetherness next week!!!

I have been thinking about starting a selling blog...Have you noticed my picture at the top on the sidebar???...If you click on it it will take you to my new blog...I have nothing on there yet to sell, but hopefully in the next few weeks I will be adding items...The sampler I just completed and designed myself...It reads "The Gass Homestead...est 1988...Timothy...Jennifer...Taylor...Luke"....I made it to lay on a table or put in a frame I purchased...I haven't decided....I stitched it in drabby browns and a blue....I'm now working on one to photograph for my selling blog....I'm in no means a designer, but I've had a few ideas lately....So what do you think about it???





Next week I hope to start getting pictures on here of items that I've ordered or gifts I've received from friends since I started painting and haven't been posting as much....I also need to finish up my painting..The master bath and bedroom need a final coat on the doors and then all will be finished and hopefully I can get some stenciling done...

Here is a pic of my hall bath...Notice the non-prim mirror!!..It came with the house....It will have to do til I find the perfect one I'm looking for..



























Now WHO didn't put the towel back right???












A new candle holder I purchased after Christmas...
















The hallway with my blue and white quilts and samplers... I'm constantly changing it because I'm not satisfied with it yet...A work in progress!!!
















The view from the bathroom....



























I will go back and take pics of my bedroom...Tim bought me a coverlet for our bed as an anniversary gift for our 21st...I absolutely love it!!!..Our anniversary is in a week....But the coverlet has been on the bed for at least 3 weeks already....
Until next time...Have a great weekend!!!...hugs, Jen

Jen,
Love the decorating :) Very, very nice! Love the blues...blue is my favorite and I'm trying to put it back in here after taking it out for awhile.

Your cross stitch is wonderful, too :) Good luck with the selling blog!

Happy to hear that your hubby is getting better. I know what you mean about enjoying that close family time. Even if we're all in the house or inside and outside, working on different projects, it's nice knowing the whole family is HERE!

Have a great weekend!

I LOVE the sampler you designed! It's simple, and that's what I love about it! I can see from your pics of your home, etc, that you have the talent for this. I really think you shold frame it and put it in a prominent place for all to see when they enter your home.
I enjoyed seeing your other pics too. You have a beautiful home.
Glad to hear that Tim is doing better and is home.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Jen, Thank you for sharing photos of your bathroom. My downstairs half bath must be twin to yours! I have a shaker peg rack that's going on the wall next to the sink tomorrow after church. I've struggled with something to hang towels on for 8 years. I really appreciate your sharing. ~Ann
