**Be VERY careful what you say....

As soon as I published my last post a YEAR ago... my world went topsy turvy and before I knew it... I was too stressed to be blessed. As I look back on that last post i shake my head and realize the gentle... no BIG BIG reminder life throws us to not be so smug, so content, so confident in our circumstances... as circumstances can change in a second. Yup, they really can.

And so I return today wiser, more reflective, but happy, enthusiastic, and eager to continue in sharing with my cyber sisters.  I will continue my search for humor,love, truth and beauty in my little life with my DH, my HS and College Princesses and HS son.

Here is  a new project I have undertaken  in the beautiful hill country of Texas.  I think I will call it.... design a house around this chandy.
Here are the "bones" of the project.  A Sunday House to be

A stone patio
A cutie little german stone house ...exterior
The interior of the stone house.... complete with wall to wall 70s sculpted carpet,lovely wallpapered wall boards, layers of  70s linoleum
I am in heaven... why???? because I don't really see the sculpted carpet, the wall papered wallboard...the linoleum.   I see something very different...  because I just know there are beautiful patinaed  oak floors, cream colored walls, crisp white trim, and that beautiful chandy in store for this baby ! 

And HS princess says I have lost it... she called me INSANE .  Can you believe she said that ?

More soon and much much love to my cyber sisters. xoxo diana

Hi welcome back to blogland! My name is Amanda. I had just found your blog last year,(just after you wrote that last post), and was enjoying it ever so much, then you disappeared! I'm happy you are back, and that you are well and happy. I can see why you would be excited with your new fix-it-up project, and I can't wait to see what you come up with! Have a wonderful week Diana!

Hellooooooo. Oh my gosh YOUR BACK!!!!!!!

I am so, so very glad you are posting again. I've missed seeing your beautiful handy work. I have no doubt you will transform this house into something that could grace the covers of "Country Living" or "Cottage Home" magazines.
You my friend are talented like that.
Hugs and hugs and hugs,

I also visited your blog off and on this past year and wondered. Glad you are back to blog world. I also haven't been the best at blogging.
