The Love Of Shabby Chic
Yesterday was my road trip to Toledo to see a old friend of many years, Barb... I had to take a picture of Sammie looking up at me as I was going around with my camera taking these pictures... He wouldn't let me alone and kept looking up at me like.." Hey lady, what's with the camera, I thought you came to see me!"
The pictures are several places in Barb's home. Her whole home is whites and pinks and creams...and pink roses as you can see. Now that you have viewed this charming little cottage style home, can you believe it is a 1970 double wide mobile home ?? It was all dark and dingy when she purchased it for less than a used car and has made a comfy place for herself and the two men in her life Sammie and Ollie.... I hope I get down for Christmas so I can share pics with you. She has the most beautiful Christmas decorations all in pinks and creams and has a flair for making it beautiful... She has a porch all decorated and also a outdoor place under her carport living area in a tropical setting with a bar area.... We shared some time and conversation... We did go to a little thrift shop she frequents and I bought a couple objects I will share with you.... That may not happen for a couple days as tomorrow we will be at Auglaize Country Club playing a mixed couple golf outing all day with a pork roast after and Sunday we are going to the lake to visit with the Hornish's.... I may be MIA for a couple days with blogging.... Have a wonderful weekend all. In our area we are suppose to experience a cool down. The days are only suppose to be in the low seventies. That will be nice for the golf however....
