So . . ., you've finally found the perfect place, lots of storage, nice size rooms, all the extra amenities. But, then you're told "no painting and no making holes in the walls"! You feel all your decorating plans going out the window. What can you do to make the space your own.

Well don't despair. There are many ways to get around the restrictions and limitations and I am here to share the ways I've overcome them over the past 18yrs.

I hope you enjoy my tips and will also share your own. I'll also be sharing some of my on going projects. Once again . . .

Shelf Decor

I've had guests all this week so, haven't did any projects.  But thought I'd show you a shelf I put together in my bedroom.

These little cuties are my two pearls, my grand-daughters!
I've used pearls as an accent throughout my bedroom.  Did you notice the pearl clusters as the tie-backs for the scarf over the headboard?  They are clip-on earrings!
It's really starting to look like my room! -_^  Hope you're all having a great week.  We have sunshine with lots of blooms everywhere.  We are expecting some showers tomorrow, but the temps will still be warm.  I'll share some more of the gardens tomorrow or Friday.  I'm loving the party links you've been sharing; keep them coming.  Spread the word so the party will grow, the more the merrier.  By for now and thanks for stopping by.
