good morning all! it’s uber early and i’m sending a bouquet your way to make sure to and smell the roses. (even if they’re ether :)

as i watch the news it’s apparent not everyone had a peaceful night as tornadoes hit texas and demolished homes and lives. many hit were under construction by habitat for humanity and it’s prompted me to get it together and finally register to work on the sites currently underway here in florida.HFH

it was surprisingly easy to register and if you want to check it out in your neck of the woods,  follow this link and choose by project or date from the calendar:

www.habitat.org

i’ll be heading to Liberty City which is one of the towns we usually just pass through (really fast) to reach our upholstery factory. it’s a community that is in desperate need of love and this is a chance to spread a little!

HF-H

they need volunteers in all parts of the country so if you are working on a project or end up volunteering for one, let me know. well i’m off to get this day started. have a wonderful weekend!

cracking the whip

hi guys! i have only a milisec before my computer dies and/or claudia forces me back to work. we have lots to prep for tomorrow but i wanted to do a quick post.  claudia helped me arrange the shelves and liz had the idea to hang the chandi by a dowel between the bookcases.

i’ve been wanting to do this wall and especially the nooks for so long but just couldn’t motivate. sometimes it takes friends as we all know! i took a couple vignettes but have a lot more to fit into this day so gotta run.

more soon, have a great day!

what’s in front of us

good morning! hope you had a great weekend! it’s crack of dawn and we were supposed to shoot at 8am but wires crossed  and it looks we may have a day of reprieve. today i’m tackling  loose ends  and not taking on any more projects big or small till this is DoNe! it’s been a hub of activity at chez moi and  liz and claudia II have been fluttering around like fairy godmothers fixing,  fastening and  fluffing stuff ready and keep me calm.

and it feels like we’re finally getting there.  the wall, the shelves and the upholstery! when the light comes up  i’ll take some after shots and post this afternoon. till then, breakfast is all that’s in front of me!

have a great week!
