By in Life, Me

Anyone who knows me knows I love the kitschy and bizarre! I came across this YouTube video of Raquel Welch today doing a very groovy space dance and thought I would share it! Out of this world, isn’t it?

garage sale finds…

By in Scavenged Stuff

Last weekend was Potsdam’s Garage Sale Weekend! I tried to stay away from a lot of them, as I’m trying not to bring a whole lot of new stuff into the house right now (I need to have my own garage sale), but I couldn’t resist a few things! While I was helping out at […]

By in Upstairs Bathroom, Upstairs Hallway

My original plan had been to rip down all the paneling in the stairwell and hallway like I did with my upstairs hallway, but it is in good condition, and I’m not sure I feel like dealing with what could […]

Starting in November 2009 I had the bottom front steps rebuilt, then in April I had the top steps and railing supports redone and the patio cleaned and broken stones replaced. It […]

hey there!

By in Life, Me

Well, what can I say? The past year had a few bumps in the road so I had to step back from the blog and take a fresh look at things. Sometimes it is just good to try to gain a new perspective on what is going on in life before you can move forward. […]

front steps finished…

By in Exterior, Front Porch

My front steps are done and I am thrilled with how they came out! I’m no longer embarrassed by how the front of my house looks and I’m no longer worried someone will hurt themselves. I hired a man named Donald Murray II who owns a business called Rockwalls & Creative Stonework in Hopkinton NY. […]
