Another Crazy Saturday!

Another weekend is here and we have been blessed with one showing (or more) every weekend since our house went on the market two months ago. Unfortunately, no buyers yet! I just had to share how cute our three kitties are - they really are good natured about getting rounded up and carted out to the car. Once in the car they get to be free and as you can see, they are quite at home in the car. Which is a good thing since we will be driving from Washington state to Tennessee when we move!

Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful!!

Well, here it is the end of March and Old Man Winter is rearing his ugly head here in the Pacific NW! We woke up to snow this morning. I must say it does look pretty in my gardens though... Maybe next week it will be Spring! Enjoy your weekend no matter what your weather is like!

Where Women Create...


I love the book "Where Women Create". My BFF Donna Lynn recently turned a bedroom into her studio. We both have been inspired by this book and numerous magazines showing our favorite artist's studios. Donna's room is turning out beautifully and she inspired me to take a second look at my studio! Needless to say, I didn't like what I saw! So I decided to get inspired and do something about it!! After painting/detailing my sewing machine cabinet, I got busy sewing! I started with a new ironing board cover (boy, did I need a new one! My old one was sooo disgusting!) and then I made a cover for my sewing machine followed by recovering my sleeve board (a mini ironing board). Thank you Donna Lynn for the inspiration!! These are a few photos of what I've been up to ~

My Red Cellphone of doom!!


I have a love/hate relationship with my cellphone. It's pretty. And red metallic. Very sparkly and shiny. But sometimes it does wierd things which I have no control over. Like randomly dialing people on my recently called list. Really, it can be embarrassing. I mean, how DO you explain to people, "Oh sorry, my phone just wrongly called your number all by itself"!

Last night Rachel came into my room and started laughing, "Mom, why is your cellphone on the floor in the corner"? I told her I hate my cellphone! It is my red cellphone of doom!

Let me explain...we put our house up for sale two months ago. And since we have a house with three cats and a dachschund, well, we have "house showings" down to a science! We have a drill. When the phone rings...Round up the cats (sometimes cat herding by a small dachschund is NOT helpful!), load them in the car, make sure the house is perfect and then leave for an hour or so...our Starbucks drive-thru baristas know all our cats and Sophie personally! The problem with my cellphone is it is the only number that is called when an agent wants to make an appt. for a showing. My phone normally is on my bedside table at night, but after two months of being awakened at all hours by my cellphone...well you understand why I hate my cellphone and it was banished to the floor in the corner!

We're hoping the house will sell very soon...after all, we HAVE put up with two months of the scaring ringing red cellphone of doom!!

Thank You, Jesus!!

Greetings on this Good Friday...


I just wanted to thank my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ for all that he did for me on this day!


But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed! Isaiah 53:5


Bless you all on this day! Victoria Lynn

I'm Back In The Game!!!


After spending the past year getting through a difficult divorce, and being sad, I am happy to say I am back in business. This past weekend I was able to get some things up for sale on eBay again. I also spent time getting to know Etsy.com where I am now part of the selling community. These photos are just a few of the new things I a have for sale. I must say, "It's great to be back in the game"! XXOO

Home Sweet Home

These are photos of my French Country kitchen. I am going to miss the warm reds and clean whites. But moving will give me the opportunity to do what I love -- redecorating!! I just love the look of red and white! It's timeless. It seems that just when I get my house decorated the way I like it, fate intervenes with a move!! I guess that just makes me appreciate what makes it my "home sweet home"!

Southern Girl At Heart




This Seattle (born and bred) girl is looking forward to moving south to Tennessee in the spring!! I'm loading up my three cats, mini-doxie and daughter and driving across country in an unforgettable road-trip. I have lots of hopes and dreams for living in the south.
