Before I left on my trip my girlfriend Sharon ask me to take pictures of the room over her garage because she lives near the Round Top/Warrenton Show and wanted to rent this room out.
Sharon and I have similar taste for decorating both of us loving pink and bright colors.
This room has plenty of both.
The little table and chairs are pink and green. Several years ago I spotted this set at Warrenton and almost bought it. Later I happened to pass the booth where these were for sale and they had sold on them.
I told my friend Janie that it had to of been Sharon who bought them and years later here they are in this room.
Sharon and her husband Lew spent maybe four years building this country home.
They now live in it and one day maybe I can show you the main house.
It is decorated all pink too but I don't think she has her Day of the Dead collection anywhere inside it.
Here I caught Sharon telling me not to take her picture because she had her apron on. It is a darling apron too and she fixed the best chicken fried steak that night for supper.
She takes a good picture no matter what she is wearing.
This picture was quite a surprise to me when I saw it because it was painted by my friend and artist Mary Ellen Shipnes who painted my headboard picture for this blog.
Now let me share with you how different friends taste can be. Sharon loves the Day of the Dead stuff.
Not this ole grandma! I find it spooky and depressing.
Every year she travels to Mexico for months at a time and plans her trip around the Day of the Dead Celebrations. Probably some of these pieces she has in this room are from Mexico but they could of been bought from the Warrenton Show because they have everything out there. In fact Sharon bought several pieces this past week to add to her room.
If I am not mistaken she has lots more Day of the Dead in storage that along with her new pieces she will be adding them to this room.
It is one of those things I believe you either like it or hate it. I told her it might keep her from renting the room but she did not agree with me.
So what do you think? Would it Spook you out to stay in this room or is it just me?
Hope you had a great weekend. My day was spent trying to duct tape one of the mantle's in the living room to the wall. Our first cold front blew in during the night and the mantle that has been separating from the wall for a while now really is separated . I have tried and tried to get a carpenter out here to fix it but no one wants to do small jobs.
Cold air was blowing inside like crazy. I could not believe how wide the gap was when I did finally see it this morning. At first I panicked thinking what kind of creatures might have crawled in during the night while I was sleeping. Then I stuffed paper and old material all around it but I could still feel the cold air so I got out the trusty poor man's fix for everything and started taping it.
I guess duct tape works on everything. I started calling around to everyone that I thought might reconsider the job and found a guy I have never used. Thank goodness he told me he would come tomorrow.
Also I have the bee guy coming back also Monday. In the back barn there are two yellow jacket nest hanging from golf carts that are as big as a football. Talk about scared that scares me.
Have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by and
PS. Sharon decided not to rent the room out this last show because she wanted to use a different bed. But if you need a room for the next show I think she might be ready for guest then.
