Hi Prim girls,
I am back! There are a few weeks since I made my last post but I was helping one of my Best Friends with her moving, painting some furniture pieces and making spring tweaking around my home. I entered in the "Trashy Swap" from Char's Blog, and my partner was Heather from The Rare Den. I received my box and I was really excited thinking in what items I will be found in the swap. Usually, when I entered in a swap I make a little " research", and always read all the blog' posts that my partner had. That is the perfect form to know the "decor taste" of your partner. But in this case we also emailed one each other to know the type of things we loved and had a better idea of what items we need or wants to have in the swap. I love swaps, but my favorite part is the excitement of what are in the box. Do you have the same feeling? Is like a Christmas Day, LOL. Look at the items that she send to me, everything was beautiful on it. Love it! Heather, THANK YOU for be my "Trashy Partner".
Love this piece.

As you know, I have two kids but they had a difference of 7 years between them. Both have different interests but when my daughter wants to use her laptop, my 4 yr son wants to used the computer to play at Sprout Online. The problem is not the same computer he uses the desktop but it was in my DD room. Well, I decide to switch their rooms to avoid hear my DD favorite phrase " I want PRIVACY in my room". After a long day from painting and moving things from a room to another and when we almost finish my son's room he asked me if I can go outside his room because "He needs PRIVACY in his new room with his dad because their are men and I was a mom". Yes, you read right, "PRIVACY". I am thinking that this word will be with me for a loooong time, LOL. See pictures of their rooms before...
I want a more colonial look for my DD room,but finally I leave her to decide some fabrics to make her pillows. She picked these fabrics...
I'm not finished with them yet but their rooms looks now like this....
Stay tuned this week, I will be posting a New Tutorial and a Colonial Giveaway... See peek pictures.
************ In a sad note ***********
My little brother call me today to tell me that a burglaries entered to his home this morning and stole his house. I am very happy because my loved family, brother, mySIL and my nieces were not there when that occur. Thanks GOD , because their lives are the most important things that they had. But I am extremely sad and furious because they are good people, they work everyday so hard to have a good quality of life for their daughters and to have good things as well. They stole every single electronic item in their house, TV, DVD's computers, electronics games, etc.. I know that is material and they can obtained them again but is so hard for young people with two raising kids . The things that they had did not came in one day, they took years to save money to have what they had and some of them were not enjoyed for at least six month. My niece computer was her Christmas present, is not fair at all. Usually, I am not share things like this but I am very upset this afternoon.
Bye, bye and see you soon,
