The winner…of the nautical giveaway!


May 22, 2011
I have been trying to post the last few days but honestly I feel so out of sorts with my house that it has caused my mind to feel cluttered.  Deciding to have my kitchen cabinets painted has turned into a much bigger job that I could imagine.  The amount of time it takes to do something in your mind is NOT reality….multiply it by 100 and throw in a little anxiety  and that is where I am right now.

Seriously….here is my LR.
Everything is out of the cabinets.  Everything has to be back in the cabinets by Tuesday morning.  They want to start sanding floors that day but I have news for them…maybe not.  Supposed to leave on vacation on Wednesday morning for 10 days.  AYFKM…..I am OVERWHELMED.
Breath….My house sure does not look like this anymore…
Never mind all of that crap…the winner of the giveaway is Kim from Savvy Southern Style.  I love Kim and her classic southern style… and that girl will paint you if you stand still!  Seriously I have never met anyone who paints as much as she does.  I am always asking her if instead of hands does she just have paintbrushes 🙂
One more thing today….I walk my dogs everyday.  It seems like everyone in my neighborhood does also, and I might not know the owners name but I know their dogs name!  The other day Jan and I were walking the neighborhood like we do in the afternoon and we saw a loose dog that we recognized as a friend of ours.  It is small Australian Shepherd and fast as lightening.  We could not catch it.  So I ran home and got my car and we started driving around.  Long story short we found someone who said it left the neighborhood and was heading down Piedmont Rd [very busy 4 lane highway] towards a shopping district.  Oh my lord…we were all over the place for 3 hours looking.  We called Anne Clark the owner and she was hysterical.
Finally we went up behind the shopping area where the train tracks were and there she was…she had squeezed through a small whole in the gate.  It is a good thing Anne Clark was skinny so she could squeeze in to go after her.  My ass would have never fit through.  We were all hysterical cause this ending could have gone SO wrong.  Moral of the story…put a lock on the fence as the yard guys shut the gate and it bounced open.  
Here are the beautiful flowers she brought to my door the next day.
Have a great Sunday everyone.  I have some great Scott’s pictures THAT I am going to post, I swear.
