Welcome back to blogland Chris! I am sorry to hear that it is taking so long for your knee to heal.

I love this time of the year too. I have been taking hikes in the forest, horse back riding and enjoying the beautiful colors of fall in the NC mountains.

Your living room is looking cozy! Looking forward to your next post.


Hi Chris,
I have missed you. I have heard how knee surgery can take quite awhile but once you are up and going, you will feel great! I have a new blog, I have totally changed my look. Stop by when you get a chance.




Glad to see you back and getting around and about... I too have been taking it real slow... having a bit of trouble with the toes.. LOL but one "step" at a time... Dr said it may or may not be permanent..

I have been finally catching up on the blogs but have not really posted anything ... guess its time to get my rear in gear.... or my foot in step... guess the rear will follow hehe





Glad to see you back and your cozy nest looks perfect for the colder days that seem here to stay.

I finally remembered to tell Mary that you had sent condolences. She told me what a nice girl you were and filled me in on your life. One thing about Mary...she knows everyones stories, lol. Bob says it is just a Portuguese mother thing! Take care of the knee and enjoy your nesting.

Hey Chris,

I hope you are heeling nicely. I know that is frustrating to say the least, especially when you are so active. Your little tv space is gorgeous!! My gosh I love it all and wish I had my own little nook. I am with you all the way on the feel of fall, I want to bake, and knit and just listen to a fire crackling. Please take it easy, and before you know it you will be playing tennis!!

Hi Doll! So glad that I popped in to see if you were back on line or not and YOU ARE!! I hope that the knee is healing well, just give it time:-). My sister had two back surgeries this year and the Dr told her to think of the time off work as "a gift to herself". Sage advice! ~XO~ Fufu


So happy to see a new post!
Oh that darn knee....I had surgery 2 years ago and I still feel better when I pedal on a bike or swim.....it seems to really help me.
Of course Motrin and Ice will always be my friend:)
Take Care and glad to here your nesting...that's always a good sign!
Your home looks beautiful!
Just enjoy this down time and have a wonderful holiday season:)
Take Care,

Beautiful room! Hope your knee is back to normal soon.


I love your TV nook. I've been trying to come up with something like it as DH rules the TV room with his gun closet and western DVD collection. I am slowly appropriating our "living room" which has a fireplace, etc, but is also decorated in a very masculine style. I've been slowly adding pillows, valances and softening touches. this is great inspiration !!!!

What a perfect haven! Glad your feeling better! Hope you are 100% very soon!

I just happened upon your site while searching "slipcovers". Love your rooms and style. I don't know if this is the correct forum, but may I ask about the slipcovers on your chairs. Exactly what I'm looking to have made but don't know where to start. Thanks so much.

Would you please share what paint colors you use on your walls? I always have a hard time finding the right shade. Your rooms are beautiful.


Hi Chris
Congratulations on winning Penny's mosiac giveaway. I won it a previous time and was so thrilled to own a piece of her work.
Your home is beautiful and I'm glad to hear you are recovering from the surgery.
