Another Putter Around the House Day

It's a foggy day here in southwest Idaho and I've decided to do another post before I eat lunch and balance my check book. Sigh... Is there anything else I'd rather not do than balance my checkbook? Nuuuuuu, in fact, I'd rather clean toilets than that.

New followers rarely, if ever, go back and read some really interesting posts when they start following someone and I'm no different. There is only one woman I went back to the very beginning and read all her posts because she's sooooo funny. I laughed and laughed and laughed at all of them and there were hundreds. So in that spirit, some of you newbies might think I'm boring. Au contraire, you just haven't been here long enough to go with me and Love Bunny on a camping trip in the wilds of Idaho (btw, I hate camping!) or to see some of the crafts I do or to visit our small home. I suggest you kind of browse to see some of them. But today I'm just rambling.

I do this kind of thing for my home.

Journals. Do you journal? I don't. Oh, I've tried but I just can't get the hang of it so I do my "journaling" here on line. I'd much rather type than write.

Or things I've done to different houses I've lived in such as this.

Or this very quick redo when we thought we sold the house, moved out and the deal fell through and we had to move back in at the height of the winter holiday season!

One of the many lamps I've redone for our home.

This chandelier I made for our bedroom.

And this little ribbon tree I whipped up when I had snippets leftover from many crafting projects.

Or little perfume bottles that I've used up all the Shalimar, White Shoulders or Poison perfume and decided I just can't rid myself of the gorgeous bottles. When I get through with my Juicy Couture I promise you it'll get refurbished and shown here. :-)

I also do random thoughts once in a while.

Random Thoughts:

Remember, the biggest lie out there is: Satan doesn't exist and One Size Fits All! I suppose that's actually two but oh well.


  1. Love all your bottles Connie! Hope all is well with you and life is good! Hugs Marilou

  2. A brilliant start to my morning to read your post, Connie, there is always something that makes me laugh!
    I have followed you for a couple of years now, and love to read all the things that you do to your home.

  3. Great post, your blog and you make me smile!! Love love love ALL of your pretties and pretty rooms!! The perfume bottles are SO pretty too!! BTW....I don't journal either....just BLOG! :) Have a beautiful day!!

  4. I do read the blogs I follow, really, I do! You are so right about our blogs being our journals, I just hope blogger doesn't crash and burn and leave all that precious creativity lost in cyber-space.

    You are busy creating cozy living spaces when you are not blogging!

  5. I am with you this is the closest I have come to journalling:)

  6. lovely

  7. I enjoy your random posts... love the thought for today: Satan does exist and one size doesn't fit all.... I'm living proof of both!!! I have a difficult time throwing away perfume bottles too... I finally threw out some this week when I was cleaning my bathroom drawers out!

  8. Hi Connie,

    This winter has been so dreadful that I have lots of "putter around the house" days. Hope you're warm and cozy in your home.


  9. are NEV-Ah Boring, and I know cause I have been thru your Archives! Now, this post has some stuff I don't the MoveOut/MoveBackIn photo! Good Grief, I thought HiHoney and I were the ONLYs to do that! LOL!!! The cutest thing I see today is on your SideBar...Caroline in that precious white dress...she's precious, too!

  10. Well my sweet friend it seems you've made me smile again. I just love a quick visit with you. I've been reading behind the scenes lately and am just now finding time to comment.

    Enjoy your week!

  11. Hi, Connie! I love seeing all these pretty pics again!

  12. i love your random thoughts! Satan does exist and one size does not fit all. I love the pictures. I love the lamp shade you redid, that is simply beautiful. I hope you are staying toasty warm in your house!!!

  13. Hi Connie,
    I love your wash and iron are always so busy..we are so alike just can't keep our hands still. We have to be making something or re-arranging something..LOL
    Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth

  14. HI, thanks for stopping by. You have done some fabulous lamp shades and Chandeliers on your own, no need to have a friend paint yours! I don't think people have to go back in your blog to know that you are just plain honest, and funny!


  15. Connie, your home is just splashed everywhere with pink beauty. Love it!

    We are putterin garound the house today also ...
    We are in a blizzard literally right now ... YippEE!

    Have a wonderful day ~
    TTFN ~

  16. What a cute post today. I don't journal either.
    I don't like doing the check book either.
    Your decorated lamp is wonderful.
    I hate throwing out beautiful bottles but I can not think of any neat way to use them.
    Have a great day.


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
