"When are all of these people going to be out of my house?"

Bella has really enjoyed all of the activity with the remodeling but I think she is ready for her quiet life back.  LOL

Latest updates:

Ceiling fan installed on the porch.  My Haint Blue ceiling isn't quite blue as I wish.  In the evening, it has a blue cast but it will be okay.

The outside lights on either side of the sliding glass doors.

My yard guy came today and mowed and I had ask him if he would start on my flowerbeds for the back yard.  And he did.  Love the black mulch.

This is off of the deck.

I found these two huge flower pots in bright red at Lowes for $7.49/each.  They originally were $49.00.  
I'm going to use them on the outside on each side of the door.

The wood floor is in the kitchen and the tile has been laid in the bathroom.  Will show that soon.l




  1. Judy, Poor Bella. Cha-ching on the red pots !! That's a big deal. I like the black mulch too. I am going to go back and see any post I may have missed....cause I am in envy of your sunroom. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  2. The ceiling fan looks wonderful Judy. Nice that the planting has started. The red pots will add a great pop of color. How long is you spring/summer/fall use of the outdoors (in your screened porch)?

    1. Joy - I figure I have about 3 months in the Fall and about the same in the Spring. You just never know about this Oklahoma weather.


  3. Won't it be wonderful to have this extra room to enjoy, right there enjoying you yard without the pesky bugs getting to you. Patience, Bella! It won't be too long till you both can have some peace and quiet.

  4. judy, it is really coming along! Everything is looking great!

  5. It is looking great! The black mulch is awesome. I haven't seen black mulch. Hmmm...may need some for my front garden.

    partners will be posted soon for the pocket letter swap

  6. I love the little flower beds, the black mulch and your new red pots! (score!). Wish I had someone to do our lawn. Hubby is too tired after working all the time.

  7. Looks like I have to make a trip to Lowe's! Love the red pots, and your little gardens are charming! Can't wait to see more pics!!

  8. Oh Judy. it looks great. Poor Bella, she wants her quite life back with her mom. Love the red pots they will looks terrific on either side of the door. You are really going to love your screened in porch - no more bugs bothering you and Bella.
    The ceiling fans is a very nice addition.
    Have a great weekend.

  12. Bella doesn't know how much she's going to enjoy her new screened porch! I'm happy for you both!

  13. Love the ceiling fan and pretty ceiling in the sun room. The yard is looking so pretty too. Little Bella is probably happy to not have all the pounding and people everywhere. Enjoy the week end.

  14. I love love love your blue looks fabulous ...and I KNOW it's keeping the haints away. I want just one ceiling to paint Haint Blue but I don't have one....haints are gonna get me and carry me off......:(
    Everything is looking so nice.....

  15. I'm jealous of your ceiling fan..hopefully next year we'll have one on the back porch. The ceiling looks pretty. I can't believe you got those flower pots for that price! What a picker you are. Can't wait to see everything else!

  16. Love all the details! It will feel so good to sit outside on that porch with the ceiling fan.

  17. I think that Bella is ready to stretch out on the new screened in porch.
    Everything looks absolutely perfect. Your artistic hand is truly evident.

  18. It's going to be such a wonderful porch, Judy...and that Bella is a heart stealer...
