Wonderful trip with friends to Old World Wisconsin

Hi again friends, What a beautiful day, sunny, warm and the most wonderful breeze that followed through the day. Just perfect. We had went on a small outing to Old World Wisconsin. What a wonderful place . Talk about stepping back in time. Took many pics but I will post a few favorite ones. I will also be posting a few new pics of inside the store soon. And I will be gathering pics within the next few days of the homes that will be on the Fall Tour of homes October 3rd (Sunday) from 11 til 4 pm. The colors of fall should be popping at peak then. Cant wait. I will be helping decorate 5 homes, some fall, some christmas. Busy, Busy, Busy. So stay tuned. In the mean time enjoy these pics. Take care.

Redecorating bedroom number one

Well, Here I go decorating one of the 5 bedrooms. This used to be my youngest sons room. He is out on his own now, so I decided to redecorate. Bedding I had got at the store, rug, at the store, blue dress...at the store, curtains....at the store, lamp....at the store.... so its a start. Not quite done, but happy with the results.

What shall I talk about first? Well, lets start with yesterday....I had gotten a call from a gal named Angie at our local hardware store. She asked if I was Theresa Halverson... Yes, I replied with a sceptical voice. She then said that she had been trying to get ahold of me to let me know that I have won $1,000.00 (one thousand dollars) gift card at the store. I again sceptical replied... Yah right, whats the catch?. She proceeded to tell me that this was no joke, I really won one thousand dollars in a gift card. I could not believe it. I questioned my husband, he said that he had put my name in a drawing at the hardware store a few months ago. Wow, thanks honey for thinking of me. Well guess whos got the card? My husband. Gotta love him!!!!

Now on to found treasures... Here is an old painted original cobalt blue underneath a salmon color painted front pie safe. Its really cool. Not sure we are going to try to get the underneath color for all over. Will probably repaint it. Needs a screen replaced in one door, but we have old screen laying around somewhere. I also thought that if it was turned upside down it could hang on a wall...add a few hooks to it for hanging things on and wow! Ross is going to add a crown to the top, just wait it will look awesome.

Now another find today was this Jenny Lind wooden trunk. Was once covered in leather. That has deteriorated over time. What a cool shape. And the patina of the wood is wonderful. The inside is ok. Oh just thinking if I should keep it. I have never seen one that I could buy until now.
