Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

If You Don't Like It Change It

I bought the cutest light fixture at Lowes the other day. The only problem was that it was the wrong color. So I got out my spray paint and changed it.
From brown to white.

Much cuter.

Way much cuter--I can only see that color working in a house like Simpsons, BEFORE they got to it. ;)

I hope I miss the messes.

Was that you in the red sweater in the bathroom at the meeting tonight? Okay I'm so weird. Other people--I'm not a pyscho. At least not THAT kind.
My husband and I made guesses as to when it would end, because I had a bad feeling, and I guessed right. One time we'll be on time and get to sit in comfortable chairs because those make my bottom go numb.
