Let's Get To It !

Well, I am going to enter the wonderful world of blogging. I have been reading your wonderful blogs for more than a year now. My sister was telling me about some decorating blogs she likes to look at and my response was, "what is a blog"?? I am not very computer savvy so I did not know about the wonderful world of blogging! She gave me a list of blogs to look at and I was hooked. Later she introduced me to rate my space. See I need a creative outlet because I love to decorate and love anything that has to do with decorating. I am certainly not saying I am good, I just love it. I started posting on rate my space and that was so much fun until lately. Now I need a new creative outlet thus the new blog. I will be sharing my home, projects, shopping trips and maybe some home tours that I like to go on. I have been very inspired by many blogs and hope that maybe mine will inspire others. This computer thing will be a learning process for me, so bear with me. I have been told it will get easier the longer I do it. So let's get to it!

Come on in and welcome to my home. I am going to share photos of my foyer. I just recently painted my antique chest. I bought this chest at an antique store in Alabama while traveling through from Mississippi. The chest was originally done in a walnut stain. I bought some green paint for the base coat and then added a mocha glaze to it. Sanded the edges to distress it and added more glaze. I am really excited at how good it turned out. I have grown very fond of painted and distressed furniture  and this is just the start to more projects I'm sure. Here are a few pictures to enjoy!

  23. Kim, your home is as beautiful now as it was three years ago. I haven't commented much over the years, but I've been reading and drooling since the beginning. I'm so glad that you've given three years of your life sharing your passion and your inspiration to all of us. You have truly been a blessing to me and I look forward to seeing SSS grow in 2013.
    Happy Anniversary!

  25. Since I didn't "know" you back when you started I haven't read the beginning posts and it's fun to see how your already great style has evolved. If nothing else, blogging has taught me how to put stuff together better so it doesn't have my 'signature' thrown together look.

    Happy Birthday to the blog and the grand daughter.
