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 . . .

New Baby Arrival! Photo Update!

Aubrey having a great nap at home after Grandmama rocked her to sleep!  You know I've got to get my spoiling in before its time to go home.  -_^

Two days later I had her in my arms again!

Grandma's first time holding baby.  You can see I was talking to her by the shape of my lips. lol

Yesterday was a very heart-warming and exciting day.  At 2:21pm on Tuesday, May 29, 2012; Miss Aubrey Elaine Dunlap was born!  Mommy did a great job and all went well.  This was my first grandchild that I was able to be there for the birth.  You can imagine my emotional joy in being there with my youngest when his daughter was born! : -)
Here is daddy, my youngest son, with his new baby girl:
 Below is Mommy 2 days before birth at the Rose Garden.   You can see that she was ready! : -)   I'll show more pics of this awesome Rose Garden in another post.
Hope everyone is having a great week.  Until later . . .
