Accessories for bookcases = $170, Finding your Enthusiasm = PRICELESS

Hi gang!

I've been a busy little bee this week...lots of exciting news to share in the next few days and again next week. I'll be back later today with some updated photos of the entertainment unit in our Living Room. It's finally accessorized! Woo hoo!

It may have taken me 2 years, but now it's done and I can move on.
(insert deliciously satisfied sigh here)


In the meantime, I'll leave you with this link.
Here's to hoping your find yours not only today, but every day...

Hi! I just found your blog today and I think it is great that you can do this. Your "cottage" looks fabulous. I wish I had seen your kitchen re-do before I paid to buy new cabinets for mine. I love the open black cabinets. You have so many great ideas. Keep it up! I love it!

I need to find some enthusiasm for house work - the cleaning, organizing, and de-cluttering kind of housework.

Can't wait to see the new accessories! CAN'T WAIT! Now I'm off to continue my project I'm working on that is slowly killing me. However, I'm working with enthusiasm now. Thanks for putting things in perspective yet again!

Enthusiasm is contagious! You radiate Sunshine! Thanks for your wondeful thoughts today!

It is so true! Enthusiasm drives us, it is so much of who we are and it brings on a great attitude!

Our thoughts become actions, our actions become our character, our character becomes who we are!

Have a Great day! Thank you for your wonderful inspiration! I am a fan! Best of luck to you and your new adventures, they are wonderful!

High Five!
Love, Brenda

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
