Bad Blogger Lately

First, I am so sorry for not posting lately. I have been busy tackling some needed home projects and the rest of my time has been spend recovering. This work doesn't agree with my aging out of shape body! Before hubby died he installed some ceramic tile in the entire downstairs of the house however, he only got around to grouting one small room and a closet. Since he used a mixture of a couple different grouts I had him mark it down and during the cleanup after his death, it was no where to be found. I finally decided to bit the bullet and go for it, as luck would have it I was able to match his grout perfectly! I had apprehensions about doing it since, I never ever grouted before but decided how hard could it be? It is SUPER easy and check out the awesome job. Hubby would have been proud, look at how perfect the joints are. I can't believe I only completed the foyer. No wonder he didn't finish! I then decided the foyer needed a coat of paint so I painted that also.

The only thing I have created lately is the pretty poinsettia picture frame to hang on my freshly painted wall. I purchased this beautiful frame at a discount house and just added some velvety poinsettia flowers and SEI "Gingerbread Flower" scrapbook paper. This looks really nice hanging on the wall but I photographed it on the floor to eliminate the shadows from the glass.

I know not much to share but I wanted to stop by and let everyone know I did not fall off the face of the earth.
Have a great evening and stay warm.
