Yes you can Sandi, and Yes I did!

First of all, I would like to say to all of those viewing this particular post right now: YOU'RE WELCOME!!! Do you have any idea how long it took me to copy all 58 pictures and related comments to this blog? Don't even get me started!

But it was worth it. Sandi has a beautiful home, and you can see the loving care she and her family took to restore it to its present grandeur with each and every picture. I don't know much about Sandi, except that she always has a kind word to say. I love her pool pictures, too. I will get them up here someday.

In the meantime, consider this a public service to all of you whose laptops heated up and burned your lap while trying to view all these pictures on RMS...Enjoy!

Me (Again): Surfer Room

I've got a backlog of wonderful rooms to post from other people. I don't know how Gollum does it -- it takes forever to upload all those pictures from RMS. And I'm not even adding any glitter and unicorns! So, my hat's off to her! I just don't have that kind of time! But I promise, I'll get to them soon! And speaking of RMS, I just looked at a few comments on there: WHAT IS UP WITH THESE PEOPLE?!?! There is some considerable anger and rude behavior on that site. CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG?!! Who knew decorating brought out such hostility? No such nastiness here, just my gentle, rambling, run-on sentences.....

In the meantime, here's a project I just finished. I donated my time for this as a fundraiser for my kids' school, so I made approximately zero dollars on this one. What's cool about this particular project is that Desiree (Desid) helped me (ALOT) with this one. She's really a much better artist than I am; and I'm not just saying that -- she really is.

Here's Jamie!

What can I say about Jamie? She's one busy lady! Wife, mother, home schooler, and professional photographer. She also keeps up with three blogs! I'm going to have to stop now, because I'm feeling all inferior! I typically won't do this on this blog, but I'm going put a link to one of her personal blogs, Rambling Rose as well as her photography blog and a link to a non-profit that Jamie and her husband (also an amazing photographer) donate their time and services to. This non-profit Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep provides free professional photo shoots for parents at the hospital with newborns that are either clinging to life or are stillborn. I'm going to warn you -- these pictures are absolutely beautiful and unless you are made of stone, you are going to shed a few tears. If you are looking for a worthwhile ministry to support, please consider this one.

Now, on to Jamie's pictures. Unlike previous posts on this site, I didn't meet Jamie on RMS. We both read a totally hilarious blog called Stuff Christians Like. I think I read a comment her husband made, went to his website, then went to know how it goes! Anyway, she's just a sweetheart and my blog buddy! She also has a wonderful cottage style that I just love! Enjoy!

Bridget's (aka blgeee) Beautiful, blue master suite

Who is Bridget (aka blgeee)? Well, she's a wonderful lady just oozing with southern charm, who is currently residing in California. The first room of hers that I saw on RMS was her beautiful living room. I remember asking her if she lived in the south because the room looked like it belonged in a southern estate. I'll post that room soon, but I hope to get ALL of the pictures from the original post (hint, hint) before I feature it here. What else can I tell you about Bridget? Well, she's certainly NOT her hair, and she's a beautiful, charming belle with a great sense of humor. Enjoy the moody blue of it all...

More from Buffie: The Master Suite

This room seems romantic and soothing at the same time. I love the dark wood of the furniture against the blue wall, plus the pewter accents all around. Notice how well all the seemingly mismatched pieces work together in here. Personally, I love symmetry, but not "matchy-matchy". She's really pulled this off in here. Another great room.

Desiree's Texas Family Room

It's been a few days since I posted any rooms. I apoligize. I've been writing quite a bit on my other blog, the kids are out of school, and we have a house guest. I promise more pics from Desiree, Buffie and, new to this blog (but not to most of you), The Divine Mrs. Schmeckygirl!

Until then, enjoy more beautifuls views of Desiree's house...

Oh yeah, she's Buff...

Buffie first caught my attention on RMS because of her amazing ability to turn anything into rub n' buff gold! She began on RMS as some random number. It soon became clear to me (and others) that she needed to change her name. The fabulous Buffie was born! Not only does she have awesome decorating skills, she's just hilarious! I will be posting her fabulous bedroom very soon, stay tuned! For more adventures in Buffieland, visit her at
