  1. Love your sweet rocker, and the fabric is gorgeous. I am going to do some changing of my decor, and plan to have blasts of turqoise as my new color.

    Still missing Boulder City, but guess that will never change. Oh, well. At least in Florida there are so many retired people that the parking spaces are much larger than other areas. This, I like. HA!

    Good to find you posting again.

    Take care.

  2. So happy to hear from you.

    Oh, my. I spelled turquoise incorrectly in my first message.

    You can see and read about my current home on Shelley's blog. I have followed Shelley for quite some time - before moving to Florida. I was so confused in styling my abode down here; it was so overwhelming. I love everything I have, but was just close to my possessions. So I hired Shelley to style. She is fabulous, and I think you will also like her blog. She is also on Facebook and Pinterest, and posts lots of amazing pictures.

    And, now, after living in Mt. Dora for only 2 and 1/2 years, I am moving to Lake Mary, Fl. As I may have mentioned, I really don't like living where I do. OOPS. Think I may have already told you this. HA! A few times . . . ? ? ? Lake Mary is only 20 miles away, and is one of the surrounding areas of Orlando. I will be closer to my son and his family, and I am REALLY downsizing. But, I am finally ready to do this, and will sell many of my prized possessions. Never thought I would be able to do this. NOW I can't wait. So, Shelley will again style my new apartment, and I will do some changes in decor. Want to be more formal shabby, with touches of the unique and out-of-the box stuff.

    Anyway, this is the link. Enjoy her blog.
