I found it!

Thanks to this wonderful guy above,
my husband,
I think I found my mojo last night!

He took me downtown to see all the Halloween revelry in downtown Springfield.....
did it matter that almost everyone downtown was half my age?
Not really.
(Okay, those 21 year old girls have some really nice legs that I don't think I could get back if I exercised day and night!) And, I think my hair even half-way cooperated with me last night....
maybe I'll keep working on
growing it out.

We went to Trolley's and because we were older and told them we were going in to eat (which we did), we didn't have to buy the $15 pub crawl ID bands
and we got a window seat
so we could watch the people inside as well as out on the streets.

If you look REALLY close at the picture below you can see a HUGE, TALL glass of beer that these folks were drinking out of....they were having so much fun!

I couldn't get my flash to work, so the pictures are dark, well, it WAS dark....but fun!

A lot of people have been asking for photos of the re-worked fireplace....TA-DA!
This room is very lodgey and Kenny doesn't hunt, but it's got a nice cozy feel to it.
Next on the list....
gas log
and cleaning and sealing the slate floor one more time for good measure
before all of the furniture goes back in.
I love cleaning and sealing...

So much better than the before
I hope November is off to a great start for you.
We should all start out with some clean SLATE!

Go forth and be creative,


  1. What a hubby! Taking you out like that. How could that not wake you up and put a smile on your face. Looks like it was a nice time. Hmm, legs like a 21 year old? I'll never see that again either. Let's be thankful that we still have 2 legs to get us around lol. Gorgeous picture of you! Can't say I've seen a bad picture of you. You radiate from the inside out..
    Absolutely love your fireplace too. Stunning. I'm sure that room will be so warm and inviting!

  2. great, great fireplace! how long did it take to do that project?

  3. We went downtown too! We just drove around the best we good...trying to maneuver through all the people. Your room looks great!
