I haven't posted in awhile , been busy cleaning and decluttering. I've finished the livingroom , diningroom and the kitchen is almost done but I plan to reorganize my cabinets next week.
I still have two bedrooms , and the art studio to clean.
It feels wonderful to have a clean , decluttered home , if only I would clean every month and keep it this way.

The grandbabies will be arriving soon. My oldest daughter went to the doctor yesterday , her cervix has thinned 50% and her Dr. told her to feel free to have the baby anytime now.
My youngest daughter is having the liver problem again , they plan to induce her around the middle of Nov.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

I did want to share one of my most treasured pieces of art. My brother-in-law painted this indian chief for me Christmas of "98. He painted and etched the chief on a piece of plywood , I love his painting. He died two years later at the young age of 39. He was a wonderful person and a great artist and I still miss him.

Hope your week has been great and your weekend is even better.

~*~ Mermaid Swap ~*~

The Glitter Sisters did a mermaid swap over at Violette's Creations. The photos above are the mermaid and atc I received.
Kelly at created this mermaid type card , it has the backside of a mermaid looking inside , the caption reads " Beauty ..... Look Within ". This was her first glitter sister swap and I think her art is wonderful.

Now , I need to figure out how to download these photos to the Glitter Sisters flicker group.

Hope everyone has a wonderful blessed weekend !!

Clean Windows ~~~ Horray !!!

Yesterday I cleaned these 72 window panes , inside and out. I used white vinegar to clean them and was very pleased with the results. Vinegar is definitely better for the environment and cheaper on the wallet. I'm trying to go green as they say and I want to live a simple , self sufficient life.

Small things can make a difference to our wonderful Mother Earth , so give vinegar a try.

*** Fall Decorating ***

I spent the day decorating for Fall. I love falltime , time to show off the oranges , yellows and reds of the season.

I had to clean the front porch first , lots of spiderwebs and dust to get rid of.

Tommorrow , I will be cleaning windows , we have a large picture window with 72 small panes.
I love that window , but I sure do hate cleaning it.
