Now, let's get started on the good stuff, Home Decor. It's always on my mind; updating, fluffing, re-arranging, adding new things, moving things around. It seems it's never done, and that's the fun of it! I am going to start showing you different rooms in my home, but first, here's an important fact to remember; I live in 800 sq. ft., an apartment. Many of you are saying, " I could never do that, I have too much stuff" and that's exactly what I said, when I found out in 2009 that I was losing my beautiful 4 bedroom home in Chandler, AZ. But, the comforting thought was, well, I have more than enough stuff to make myself a beautiful apartment, so that's what I did.

The above picture is an antique doll that my mother gave. Her Aunt Ruthie had this doll for years, and thus her name is Ruthie. It is my understanding that this is an old German doll. My mom, many years ago, had her clothes, her hat, and her shoes redone especially for her. She also has a new wig. And here she is in all her glory, in a curio cabinet purchased especially for her.


  1. Hi darling, Welcome to the world of blogging, I look forward to getting to know you and go on the journey of you downsizing to a wonderful sized apartment... hugs ~lynne~

  2. Oh what a lovely heirloom. She is gorgeous. I so know what you mean about downsizing, as you have read, I have been trying to do the same thing for the past 5 yrs. Space cut in half and still all the stuff. Can't wait to see more. Hugs, Marty
