romantic prairie style...

Happy Monday!
I know I have been promising to share the latest project I have been working on for my living room and today is the day.
Remember when I got my big white comfy couch back in May of 2010...



I wanted to paint my old blanket chest coffee table white.  Well it only took me until May 2012, but I finally did it...


I love it!


This past weekend our campground opened for the season.
I did not have Internet yet for my laptop.  I do have an iPhone now but blogging just is not the same (for my old eyes anyway).
So, I am glad I brought one of my copies of Fifi's new magazine with me...



It is fabulous and full of inspiration ~ of course!
And yes, you read correctly.  I said one of my copies.
I picked one up to share with one of you!
So if you would like a chance to win just leave me a comment on this post ~ that's it!
I will announce the winner on Friday, May 11th.

Oh and did y'all catch The Junk Gypsies new show?!!
It was wonderful!

I just want to say thank you to my girlfriends for a fun filled opening weekend at the campground!
Lots of laughs, good food, excellent margaritas and great pickin!
I'll be sharing my finds on White Wednesday!

Have a wonderful day!

Oh, I would love to win a copy of the magazine! I always have such a hard time finding issues where I live!

I love the JG show! They are so sweet! I know them and they are sweet like that in person! So glad they got a show they deserve it. They work very hard.
