Paula, I think you could do it! I love DIY.

I haven't been on here much because I have had some family stuff going on and health issues, which are being resolved. Now I am doing just what this says. I am working on making my house a home.

Please keep in mind that I am always making more work for myself. :)

My king bed just seemed to be shot all of a sudden, so I looked online and a new memory bed would be at the lowest over $1,500 so I took my bed all apart, ordered (top of the line) new memory foam, and I will be putting it back together when my order comes in.

I also had my couch cushions professionally redone and I will be making a washable slipcover for it soon.

I also got all the fabric I needed in order to make a king sized rag quilt for the spring/summer with a dust ruffle and shams.

My energy is back up now due to my new thyroid meds. Wish me luck!!! :)

Anyone else doing projects this spring?

I've heard it can get kind of messy....you can do it wet or dry. I might try a smaller room on my own and see how it goes.

I'm trying to decide whether I want to go to the trouble to scrape the popcorn texture off the ceiling in the den when I paint this summer. Sure would make a difference, but might be more than I can handle. We've got popcorn everywhere (house built in the 80's), and just viewed a friend's home where she had the ceilings redone. It definitely modernized the house.

For my bedroom and my office, I need small to medium storage containers. My desk drawers are bulging. My bookshelves are loaded with file folders, binders, etc. I know what I want, but have not gone shopping this week yet. I'd like to find a sale as I am frugal. emoticon

hubby bought a greenhouse window for the kitchen. Come spring I hope he has the time to get it in. I'd love to grow herbs in it.

We have an electric fireplace in the den. I'd love to get a nice braided rug to put in front of it.

I have lazy housemates who do nothing. So, it is all up to me in this household. If I do not do the dishes and the cleaning and the trash and the cooking it will never get done. It is all up to me to make myself a home. The positive side? I get in my activity. My problem? When the day is over I forget to log in my activity as I am exhausted. Atleast I know I am getting it in though.

Love a good clean smell..... Sometimes I think our den gets too much of a "doggy" smell. Our two big dogs both have beds in there and sleep in at night even though they're out during the day. I try to keep the bed covers washed regularly, and also occasionally use the Arm and Hammer carpet deodorizer that is for pets.

ah, yes, live plants: mine need to be "re-stocked" as my ex-bf did a minimal job of checking my house while I was away and many of the plants did not do well with the neglect.
I love fragrances and have a candle warmer in the family room, scented candles in various spots and often spray lavender in my bedroom at bedtime.

Kathy -- those scents sound very nice. I agree about the flowery scents....sometimes they can be overpowering....almost to the point of giving me a headache.

Yes ladies -- de-cluttering and cleaning are so important for making a house a home you want to be in.

Good tip about the music! I used to listed to audio books while doing my chores, but now that DH is around all the time, I've stopped doing it so much.

Hmmm.. my favorite scents.. it really depends on my mood.

I always like the linen scent, especially in bathroom and bedroom (I also like crisp sheets - no those ultra-soft one, and no candle beats the smell of line-dried laundry!) In the kitchen I like the cinnamon-apple kinds, and living room - probably aloe or something like fresh rain would be my favorite. I'm not into the real strong flowery scents, find them to be a bit over the top for me. And I don't burn a bunch of different ones at the same time, usually the room where I just where I want to relax for a while, or to prepare an aura for guests.

I love adding scents to my bedding. I spray one of my many perfumes lightly while I make up the bed in the morning. At night the scent is very light and makes the sheets feel fresher.

Kathy -- now you've got me thinking of home made bread. emoticon emoticon
Funny coincidence -- I just came in here to look up a recipe for chicken pot pie -- I have some refrigerated pie crusts that need to be used, and some thawed Christmas turkey.

I know what you mean about the smell, though. There is a quick baked apple dish I make --when I've got lots of apples-- that has cinnamon in it -- The smell is really inviting. Also....this is the time of year when people start thinking of those fall meals that stick to the ribs.

To my husband, I know that the smell of warm homemade bread, or a pie sitting on the old woodstove in our kitchen ( first thing you see when you walk in the door ) is what would shout HOME to him. But what a dilemma, as though are two things that neither of us need to be eating!!

We tend to get the bugs, too. Neither DH or I like to spray (don't want to breathe the fumes) and different times of year we have scorpions, gnats and katydids (camel crickets)....Roaches have not been a problem ...knock on wood. Outdoors it's ticks and fire ants and mosquitoes. Yes! The joy of living in the country. But I do love it.

This evening we went and ate at DS and DIL's new (old) home and helped them get a front flower bed planted with bulbs. A lady at home depot sold them to the kids, and I'm so hoping they perform well for them. The house they bought is almost 60 yrs old, is a couple blocks from where I grew up, and I knew the boy whose family lived there.

Your'e right - there is just that brief period of time between when it's too cold to open the windows, to warm enough to open them and have that fresh aroma, to when the flies and other unnamed flying insects begin creeping in. We do have animals around, and we do get flies, plus we live in this old house where they crawl in between the walls and settle in for the winter. The sun brings them out and they crwl through the lttle openings that the window cords go through - it's such a "joy"! One of the joys of country living that most people probably don't think about! =) But I still LOVE spring best of all!!

KMF -- I love the brief period of time where we can have the windows open! When we first built (almost 30 yrs ago) DH insisted on having an attic fan. We used it for a few years to bring the cool air in at night, and then we would shut the windows during the day and keep the rooms shaded to avoid letting sunlight in that would heat everything up. It worked fairly well ..... except there was SO much dust brought in with the powerful fan. It has been shut off for years and we've not even opened the upstairs ceiling vent to let it work. DH and I were just discussing whether we need to disable the switch in case someone turns it on by accident. Might be kind of interesting to try to use it again.

It's the "little things" that make a house a home! They sound like bright spots of color and cheerfulness addd, Paula!! And nothing like flowers to make a house beautiful, whether planted inside or out!!

My hope today is to to get a lot of the little things done that tend to get put off, but that can make such a difference. I'm so glad that spring has sprung, and I can get a bit of fresh air into the house. (As long as my husband doesn't come behind me, closing all the windows I have opened a crack!) That's a smell that to me makes the house a fresh home!!

Yesterday I bought a few of the little metal garden decorations at the Dollar Tree to stick in pots for my springtime caladium bulb planting. There are a couple of sunflowers and a hummingbird. Totally useless, but fun!

I hung up a picture of a stream with dogwoods blooming along the banks. Just brings a bit of springtime inside!

For many years I tried my best to make my house a "home" for my family. Now I'm living alone and have begun making changes that make it a home for just me. My favorite color (pale blue) is in almost every room. I cook when I want what I want. I clean one room at a time. It's becoming just like I like it. :)

Yes, pictures are the "finishing touch" to a home that expresses love! I need to be working on getting grandkids' pictures up - I bought a plaque the other week that says "Grandchildren complete the circle of love" I think it will be perfect in the center of a collage of our 11 grandkids!

KMF - I love doing things like that for my hubby. He does them for me too. Yesterday I cam home and he had dinner in the crock pot and the dishes were done.

I continue to work on hanging pictures in our home. To me, I love looking around and seeing my family and friends.

KMF -- I can relate to that! I definitely need to work on that, too. emoticon

emoticon At my Mom's instigation, we have been going through our old VHS camcorder tapes from back in the late 80's, early 90's. DH found some new software at Best Buy for converting them to DVD, so we have been drawn into that the past few days. There are all kinds of tapes lying around and at the end of viewing another one I say "No More!" -- but get hooked again at another memory. So....I guess you could say we've been doing a little decluttering as we've been throwing many old VHS tapes into the recycle bin.

Every day this week, I de-cluttered a surface or a shelf. Even got the main shower-bathroom scrubbed down, old shampoo storage racks removed...did a complete overhaul to the room.
