LOVE to Create...

    I Love to create... Love DIY....
               I love texture & color...
          There are few things I like better than
     to see a piece of fabric & know exactly what
                    I will do with it.

     I love to repurpose a piece of furniture...
   There are SOooo, so many projects in my head

         So being the bad blogger that I am,
  I keep waiting for something to dazzle you with...

          But.... this is what I have been up to
                    Does anybody care??   : )
                     Nothing fabulous....
  Just stuff that needs to be done at the Cottage
                     to make it liveable
                   A four day weekend....
            1 coat of primer, 3 coats of paint
                       Doors are done....
           Another coat of paint in a bedroom...
      Filled in a MILLION nail holes & a final coat
                 of paint on the crown molding
               While the guys did a LOT of this..

                    To catch some of these...

         (well, this one got thrown back.... out
     of season & not very tasty, I am told :) 
                    So doors are done.....
                Another bedroom D.O.N.E.

The plastic is now removed & they look great
I was just TOO pooped to take the pic..... :)



  1. I'm glad you are getting a lot of projects done, Kathy. It seems that this is the time of year when most of us are working away indoors {not like those lucky guys that get to be outside fishing!}

    The doors look fantastic so far...we have to see them without the tape! I'd love to have French doors somewhere in my house!

    Have a great week!


  2. Looks like you have been REALLY busy, Kathy! Just think, by summer, it will be all finished, and you will be outside with the guys, enjoying the sunshine. The doors look great!
    Won't be long now.

  3. Oh ~you are getting a lot done, Kathy! It will be all ready for you in Spring...and done by the time Summer is over (or before). Isn't that the way it always is? The women cook and paint and the guys play and fish- at least in Wisconsin! xo Diana

  4. painting IS creating...enjoy the process!

  5. Hi - This is my first time to visit your blog. I'll be back!! I loved doing a lot of things around our homes we have owned in the past but find I can't do so much any more so I'll take pleasure in yours!! Thanks for following my blog - I hope you'll start leaving me comments. Have a wonderful God filled day.

  6. Okay, seriously? I think you have had enough time to write a new post. :D I keep thinking I am missing something but I stop by and nope, we are still stuck in February. :D

    As for getting my posts if you hit the subscribe button at the top of my blog a screen will open up with all kinds of options. The easiest is probably email. It is a multiple step deal so you have to be sure that you do the I'm not a robot thing and when you get an email confirming your subscription then you have to click on that link to verify the subscription. You can also add BeColorful to your reader or follow through Facebook or Networked blogs. I have a couple of people that have had trouble. I don't know if it is a Typepad thing or they aren't completing the process.

    Have a great week. So glad you stopped by.

  7. Love, Love what I have read so far. I am glad I came by.

  9. An Edwardian lady in full dress was a wonder to behold, and her preparations for viewing were awesome.Bridal silks

  10. sure got one on me...I was reading along, enjoying your paint jobs and then, in JUNE....and I thought I had wandered off into the Twilight Zone. hahhaaa...

  11. Thanks for stopping by and sharing about your experiences at Buena Vista, CO. I enjoy hearing other people's life journey.

  12. Beautifully done, I adore french doors...are you still making your mittens???
    We're approaching the fast now.
    All of the firsts...
    so soon after losing my sweetheart.

  13. I had to come over and tell you that I got a good chuckle from your comment because my husband used to get told that he looks like Tom Hanks ALL the time when he was younger, but it hasn't happened for a while. So I was amazed when you said it! You have a good eye. :)

  14. Missing you and your posts....
    think of you often.....

  15. Hi Kathy! I'm so glad you came by my blog! Thanks so much for you comment on my chairs..I love how they turned out! The pegboard idea came out of sheer laziness...who wants to figure out where to drill a hole?! lol I split the foam because I saw it on a said you needed somewhere for the fabric to go when you wrap it around the back of the chair. After I did it, I figured i could have just folded the fabric under like the diamond tufting, but it did work really well, so I guess it was ok. :)
    I love your french doors! I have a pair that lead out to our backyard, but I've always wanted some inside too...that's a project for another day. I have the french doors....I thought I might incorporate them into our wide dining room opening one day. :)
    Have a great week!

  16. I actually do find freshly painted doors exciting :) And what a cool way to go fishing!

  19. I don't think there is much prettier than white french doors. I talked about painting ours black but in my heart I knew I couldn't do it. Thanks for your glowing words on my Charisma family room. :D I wanted to have the dining room painted while Mike was in Jacksonville last week. We girls just think alike. :D Keep blogging. I love reading what you are up to.

  20. Hi! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I
    truly enjoy reading through your posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects?
    Appreciate it!

  21. I got this site from my friend who informed me regarding this
    web page and at the moment this time I am visiting this site and reading
    very informative content at this time.

  22. Hello! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours require
    a massive amount work? I am brand new to writing
    a blog but I do write in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  23. It's really very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, thus I only use world wide web for that purpose, and get the latest information.

    Feel free to surf to my site particuliere vakantiehuizen - -

  24. I absolutely love your site.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you develop
    this website yourself? Please reply back as I'm wanting to create my own personal blog and would like to learn where you got this from or what the theme is called. Many thanks!
