Friday’s Hear!

Fridays hear and I’m chilling for the weekend, not…I have floor plans to work on, area rugs to find, a book fair to go to, my nails need doing/colours a bit strong, laundry to do… I am going to need a weekend to recover from my weekend…so I thought a few interesting pictures are in order….


Love the repeat of the wall tattoo…


Corral on the mantel, great scale!


Great use of chalkboard paint…


Just interesting, interesting, interesting to look at…


Je taime…I love you, thank you for visiting…all my 10 followers…and anyone else that just happens to drop by…I am having a blast with the blog world…see you later alligator, in a while crocodile…

Happy Weekend everyone! Love Carol Ann x


  1. love your blog -all the pics are great especially the chalkboard chest- thanks for sharing!

  2. Love the pink room, I love Friday's too!

  3. Fantastic pics! Love the last two especially - I want those chairs!

  4. I have yet to get furniture made with contrasting piping like those white and black chairs. It always looks so great!

  5. I just got your comment! There's a program called snag-it you can download free for 30 days, after that you pay I think it was $50 bucks and you can snag anything you like.

    I didn't take the images from the video though, it was at the end when you look at all the products.
    Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi Carol Ann - I love Fridays too! Love your pictures -- the dark dining room table is just what I want to end up with when I paint my existing table - fingers are crossed!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I actually do enlarge some of my photos, and lately I've been giving them as gifts to my girlfriends too. Flowers are such easy subjects for photography - no posing necessary ;D.


  7. Love the little puppy in that one photo!! So Cute!

  8. Hi Carol Ann: I saw you over at Joni's (Cote de Texas) and you asked her how a 'double ruffle' is done. Actually it is quite simple if one has a sewing machine 'ruffler foot' and follows the instructions per usage. The final result is basically a 'full and/or evenly spaced gather' dependent upon your setting.

    IF curious about the box pleated skirts; a'regular foot and machine stitch' is just used however if making a TRIM there is a tape that you can apply to the wrong side of the fabric and use as a guidline for spacing/creating perfect box and/or knife pleats.

    Perhaps Joni knows other methods, but I have found the above the easiest and the methods give you a professional finish. Hope this helps you a wee bit. -Brenda-

  9. what I mean by double ruffle is that the seamstress puts so many gathers per inch. or foot - how ever she measures it. if you tell her to double it, it is exactly that - make twice as many ruffles per foot that your normally would. that is what those designers are doing to get such a great full ruffle. sometimes even triple. it's more expensive though, but it's worth every penny. I hate skimpy.
