Hello, My name is Jen and I am a clean freak!! Lets see...3 kids=6 hands=60 fingers=a mess of smears and smudges on my stainless appliances...enough to send me over the edge!! Just think, all this time I have been spending big bucks on all that expensive stainless steal cleaner that I was never satisfied with. Baby oil people!! I am in love with baby oil!! I just pour some on a soft cloth and wipe with the grain.
Works wonders!!!

It's a cold and rainy day here today. Makes me want to slip into my jammies and crawl into bed. Instead, I have been sifting through my inspiration file, sorting through some of my favorite bedroom photos . I don't know about you, but my bedroom is always the last room in the house to get any decorating attention. It usually gets the hand me down nick knacks and thing-a-ma-bobs from every other room in the house. It just never really feels cozy to me. So, I have decided to focus some attention on it as soon as the kids are back in school. Thought I'd share a few photos of my faves. Enjoy..... Love Love Love this blue room!!

Adore this room!! Love the rug!!

Hope you all are having a great weekend! Our Kids are at Grannies overnight, so Hubby and I took a drive out to Amish country today. We still dream of having an old farmhouse and back forty with lots of farm animals!! So, we love to cruise around looking for our dream spot. We stopped and got some coffee and snacks and called it a date!! lol
Have a good night.

Colors so bright and juicy.... I want to eat it!
Yes, I have been whipping up some fall tassels and a few pillow slips for my sister. She is in the process of redecorating her little cottage!! She asked for my help, but our schedules are so opposite that it's hard for me to make my way to her neck of the woods. When I do make it to her place, I'll be sure and sneak my camera along!!
Football season has begun and school is just around the corner. If you don't hear from my as often that is why. It's the time of year that I become a full time taxi driver!!
Hope all is well with all my sweet friends in blog land!

I'm not complaining, I'm just saying...It's the middle of August and 65 degrees!!! Indeed, this has been the coolest summer that I can remember!! So, rather than feel sorry for myself because we don't have a red tomato in sight!! I thought I'd post some inspirational fall photos, to take my mind of the fact that the cilantro has been ready for weeks, but due to the lack of ripe tomatoes there will be no fresh salsa any time soon!!! We do have plenty of pumpkins!

Hope you all had a nice weekend!!
