Jessica Congratulations on your 100th post! I still have so far to go! Those prizes are lovely but may I decline? I'm all the way in Trinidad and I would love for someone else to receive this lovely prize!

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Jessica, Congrats on your 100th post. I would love to be entered into your drawing. These items are wonderful. You are so generous. Good luck to the winner!!

onlymehere said...

The color is Hopsack and the paint is Valspar semi-gloss from Lowe's. I really love how it turned out! My secret project has more paint. Sigh, haven't heard from the tiler yet today. I need a working washing machine and dryer desperately!! We don't have this many clothes or towels!

onlymehere said...

P.S. I see you're in real estate. I knew you managed apartments but are you a realtor too? Larry wanted me to get my realtor's license years ago. I love houses and thinking of how they could be fixed up. I wish I'd have done it. I'm sure it's slow now but I would have made better money than I have with transcription that's for sure! LOL!

Queenie~ said...

Oh girl...I screamed when I saw that robin's egg blue tray and the other pretties. Yes, please enter my name in the drawing!! I am keeping my fingers crossed. Okay now I've got back my composure back ....good luck to the other girls here too.
Have a great day sweet friend....I am so glad that I met you too. By the way... about the wicker chair you told me about....Yes, girl, go back and get that thing! LOL!

Marilyn said...

hi Jessica...count me in! I would love to be in your draw.. and if the distance is a bother.. I have a daughter in USA (so no postage problems). Congrats on your 100th..whoo hoooo...I still feel like a beginner but I am soooo Marilyn

Yes! He finished the grout today. We have to let it set 24 hours and then we can move the washer and dryer in. He told us for the next seven days, once a day, to spray the grout with a spray bottle filled with water (just lightly mist it) and let it dry. This makes the grout dry harder. Then we can seal the grout. So it won't be for another week until we can be totally in it but at least I can reveal my secret project within the next few days and get the baseboards on. The best part is I can do laundry again! It will be a week total since I've been able to do any laundry. Can you imagine with five people living here how big the piles are?! LOL! Good thing I don't mind it. I've only done two loads - Trav's work clothes and towels since last Tuesday night but I guess you'll have to see my new post about that, LOL! I seriously think I've lost my mind now!

onlymehere said...

P.S. Thanks for the info on your work. I do sincerely hope all your dreams come true and that things turn around in the market soon for you. It sounds like a great plan to me!
