  2. Nice! This is how home improvement sucks you in….it always starts with just one little project… 😉

  3. LOL.. Well that looks great… It’s one of the reasons I try to avoid decorating though, as once you’ve done one room, then the rest of the rooms look bad… 😉

  4. Yes Milk and Funk (like what I did there with the names? Sounds like a 70’s disco duo doesn’t it?! You’re welcome. lol)

    We use the saying in our house, “It all starts with a throw pillow.”
    Lowe’s was calling my name today, beckoning me to come. I resisted, but I don’t think I’ll hold out for long. I’m weak! 😉

  5. Jacks. I want to play jacks there. With a golf ball, not one of those little red rubber things. Most of all I want to still be able to play jacks, sitting there on the nice new asphalt with my legs in a pretzel, taking it for granted that I could get up when I was done playing.

    • Oh, Lordy Gerry! This 40 year old wishes for the same thing! I never imagined 6 months ago that I would find getting up off the floor a major feat, but alas, it is. *sigh* Dammit…youth really IS wasted on the young! 😉
