Just finished watching American Idol

The judges seem to have chosen Skyla this evening, but I'm still sticking with Joshua Ledet!  Who do you like this year?
See Joshua here:  Sorry I can't get the link to work, but you can copy and paste this in your search bar.

I'm going to share more photos with you.  Not really any great hooking projects to show.  (I'm working on an original, but want to wait 'til it's finished to show)
Our living room Was all white slipcovers and very calming.  Well after lying on the couch for four months looking at those four walls over and over I couldn't wait to bring some COLOR back into my home!

Before...


After...
 The same slipcover.  I just had her do one side white and the other this funky red print.  (When we bought our sofa it comes as a slipcovered piece.  You have to choose a cover for it~it's naked!  So I chose white, but then the salesman said the slipcovers were on sale 50% off, so I got a red one too!) I bought the sofa before having this settee covered. 






Out with the old 



And in with the new








 Isn't this a lovely rug?  I picked it up at an antique shop here in town.  My colors are red, white and black but this was too cute to pass up!  And for $25.00!!!
   
Tammy came over to see my redecorating and sat on the couch.  She looked down and said, "I made that rug"!!!!!!!!!!!  She sold it to a lady next door to Simply Fibers.  We laughed and laughed.  WHAT a coincidence.  I told her Mickey and I were admiring the beautiful workmanship and wondered who in the world would sell such a piece for $25.00?  I even asked the salesclerk if this was the right price.  It was kind of wadded up and stuck under a table.  But all I saw was that it was red and it was hand hooked!!  I told Tammy I knew I had good taste!!


I spent the Whole day gardening today.  I'm so afraid I won't be able to get out of bed tomorrow.  On the days I feel good I always overdo it and then pay for it the next day.  But it's worth it to me!  I will never learn to pace myself.  Not in my vocabulary.

Hope you had a great Wednesday,
Peace,
Sheri

Sheri,
That is unbelievable you bought a hooked rug for $25.00! And even more unbelievable that Tammy hooked it!! Wow! Great job! It was meant to come live in your living room redo! LOVE the red accents! A nice warm and happy addition!
I need to get into my gardens too! Things are coming up and it's killing me not to be able to get out and dig in the dirt!! Nice to see you posting again!
Hugs!

Hey, Sheri,
So nice to hear from you again! As soon as I saw the first picture of the rug, I knew I had seen it somewhere, either at a show or on the internet--maybe not Tammy's but someone's! What a coincidence and what a good bargain! 8-} I love red and your sofa looks great!
Take care! Big Hugs! Jeanne

Your red cover looks good! Love the story about the rug ~ same thing happened to me last year! Saw this cute rug on the markdown table for $25 ~ looked at it several times ~ I thought for $25 I should buy it ~ turned it over and IT WAS MINE!!! That shop used to buy from me years ago ~ I think they had it in their home and decided to recycle it! Pretty darn funny! So glad to hear you sounding so good and ready to tackle the world! You're back!!!!

Down to 2 on A.I. I am convinced it is RIGGED! Altho I like Phillip.......he should have been gone weeks ago!
I'll be watching for and buying Joshua's music. Won't spend a dime on Jessica or Phil.
Jeeeeesh.......such disappointment.
