Well what a day I went out to the Marriott hotel with Emma and we had lunch with Nicole Johnson Miss America 1999!!!!!!!!!
I also had my picture taken with her crown on. I was so excited !! but I am always excited about all my adventures. That is on my bucket list to enjoy life. Anyway her assistant said it would be about 2 weeks before I received my picture in the mail. I will post it even if I look awful. I am just not photogenic like some people. Oh well no big deal
The University of Missouri Cosmopolitan International Diabetes and Endocrinology center sponsored it . since I am a patient I got an invitation and so did my good neighbor Emma so away we went. Since I don't have her picture yet here is a picture of her book.
I am trying to rearrange my office and thought I would work on it when we got home and I have worked on it . I have been looking at the mess . I have everything off the wall because I purchased a large picture of library books and love it. however it just doesn't look as good on my red walls as my gold items. so I am in the process of hanging everything back where it was. I will try hanging the large picture 4ft x 4ft on my bedroom wall .
This was my inspiration picture I want the velvet sofa also. ( I want a lot) have you noticed
Here is a couple small pillow I purchased to go on my green leather chair I have in the room . Also some of the things laying in the chair I am putting back up on the wall where they were previously
Then as I move into my bedroom I got my toile valanced and curtains back up. I moved the rods up closer to the ceiling because I like lots of light in my rooms and by moving the valances up it let more light in. That is the day I cried twice (LOL) , I would get one end up and the other would fall. None of my neighbors were home to help me .
The mirror behind my night stand was my Grandmother's . This was the only mirror we had in our house when I was a child , except for the medicine cabinet in the bathroom. Maybe this is why I have a mirror in every room even the kitchen ? hadn't thought of that before
Then I moved my new antique needlepoint stool in on the bed while I was moving things around and an old pair of soft black leather ladies Victorian boots and also a small beaded bag
Have you ever seen the book by Barbara Streisand? Oh my gosh there is some beautiful pictures in that book. It's all about her house. I want an aubusson pillow so bad and she has about 6 on every sofa even an aubusson rug in her dressing room . Name of her book is Passion For Design
maybe your local library has it , check it out .
well I am going to hammer another nail in the wall and get these things back where they look good.
