Change is Good!

If you read often you will know by now that a lot can happen in a day around here. And a whole lot can happen in several days, which it has been since my last post.

You remember that my computer hates me... Only 6 years old and a mind of his own..
I have been trying for 8 years to get a mailing list that is up to date and easy to use. It has been a BIG nightmare and I usually end up writing the addresses by hand and that is a bit tedious... To make a long and very sad not to mention emotional story short. I now have a new computer, I'm sure we will be the best of friends and all my computer dilemmas and woes are over...

I spent a couple of days trying to get the living room back in order. I also have been moving the office around with the changing of computers, it seemed like a good time to dust... and you know what that leads too. Here are some of the before and during pictures of the living room.

Sam was home while I was working and he came in during the "process" he said.. I need this picked up and put away. He mentioned several things, and then he said, I want it sparkly clean.. Your friends will be so proud!

Do you think he has heard something like that from me?? I don't remember saying his friends would be proud??

I still need to work on the top right hand corner of the mantle but I will get it sooner or later...

This is actually a small corner. It looks to me in the picture that it needs more, but in real life it is plenty full... did you notice that I have thing for white buttons..

Saturday I had wonderful time at my friend Gayle McDowell's daughter Megan's wedding.
It was a beautiful day in every way. Here are a few of the moments I captured.

I first met Gayle when she was pregnant with Megan. She is a lovely girl, actually I guess at 22 years old I should say woman... Is it really possible??? Where did all those years go??

I was so happy to help Gayle implement the ideas that she and Megan spent countless hours preparing.

The candy on the cork board with a gold frame (that belongs to Lisa "A thing for Roses") was a big hit. The candy was six different kinds of pink candy in celophane bags with a "M" for their last name stamped on the label.

Portland Golf Club was a beautiful setting so very little was needed for decoration.

Todd who is Megan's new husband works for Nike so there was significance in the shoes.

The mantle was pretty, Gayle and I both brought some treasures from home. Do you recognize the white buttons??

I will leave you with this a beautiful young bride..

and a six pack of dancing ladies...
