 First of all I want to wish everyone a
Happy Memorial Day!
Our hearts go out to those we have loved and lost.

Now I did a little project today, it may be a little picture heavy since it is a first post showing these kinds of here goes.
I worked on my threshold today.
I needed a new coco mat and ordered it from here. They had great prices and I found a coupon online. I needed a large one since I have double doors. They also were the thick ones and not rubber backed.  A more substantial look I think. Once that came I realized that the threshold needed to be redone, isn't that how it always goes! Anyways, that is what I did I have to paint the doors and trim. That is another post!
Enjoy and have a lovely day!

 Here are some befores......

First Day!

Welcome! As you can see I am still struggling with the set up of my Blog! I am so excited to get started and show you everything that is about me, what I love, my ideas, my thoughts and probably my ramblings!
I hope to have a clearer picture of what my blog will look like tomorrow.
      Going forward, I will show you my wonderful home and take you through the projects I will be doing. I will share my inspiration, share my Etsy site, show you ideas, share my thoughts and whatever else I can up with. Along with that I will be in between horseshows and taking care of my husband, two children, three dogs and one horse. My daughter has one she takes care of(but I pay the bills) how does that work!
Anyways, until next time, bear with me on the newbiness!!!
