Glorious time at the beach...

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  Lately, I have been doing a lot of DIY projects in my head and not actually doing them.  My plan is to really get some of them done… Does anyone else do that? Spend so much time thinking about what you are going to do, yet nothing really comes to fruition or is it just me? Can anyone say "the world's biggest procrastinator", that is me! I hope I have something to show you this week or I am just going crack up!!

Well anyway, we had a beautiful weekend, the weather was perfect, we went for a walk on the beach with our dog Ringo and the kids had so much fun!  The water looked amazing, so enticing… of course the kids couldn't resist they dove into the water, clothes and all!  Don't they realize its mid October in New York, the water is freezing… They ran home and took a hot shower, made up for their absurd spontaneity.

Ringo found a playmate too… Sooo cute!

ahh the love...

Here are some beautiful spaces I have been looking at to help me come out of my funk...

All Hallows Eve pumpkin decor

I had so many things going on lately, I haven't had much time to decorate for fall or halloween.  I usually have a nice little display with a life size witch, 7ft. tall frankenstein, other scary objects strewn on my lawn.  So far,  I just have a few pumpkins and some orange mums haphazardly in front of my front door.  I am hoping at least today I'll round up the kids and do a little fall decorating.

For some inspirations, I found these fabulous pumpkin decor ideas…

I love these celestial pumpkins...

Gotta have some bling, even on a pumpkin…

Great walkway lights!

Beautiful centerpiece.

New look for an Ikea desk

I found this great project while I was browsing the internet that I must try.  Since I take so long to get fired up to do any projects lately, I thought I show you via the site I found it on matsutakeblog.

You need a basic unfinished dining table from Ikea for $69.
Just cut a few strips of 1x2 to make the sides.  The base of the new side (that horizontal strip on the floor) is a 2x2.  Join all the pieces of wood with dowels.
This method of joining wood doesn't require any special tools other than a drill, it makes a clean joint with no hardware sticking out, and the bond is extremely strong. (1) Drill a hole, (2) fill it with glue and stick a piece of dowel in it, (3) drill a hole in the other piece and fill it with glue, (4) push it into the dowel and connect.  Wipe off the excess glue.

For this desk lay out all the wood strips on the floor and join them first. Then drill the holes all the way through the Ingo legs and slide the whole side structure in. After the glue dries, fill the holes with wood filler and sanded it smooth.  Use paintable caulk to make the seams where the wood strips meet very flush. Then tons of sanding over the whole thing and about 4 coats of glossy white paint.
Looks amazing!

Glorious autumn!

Most of us here in New York had a three day weekend because of Columbus Day.  We decided to visit our friends in Upstate New York, their house is perched upon a mountain, perfect place take in the beauty of fall.  Most of all we couldn't wait to see Grizzly, their dog, oh of course our friends too! Ha Ha!  Their dog, Grizzly is a rare breed dog called Sarplaninac,  Macedonian-Yugoslav sheep dog  they are rare here in the States.  My friends entered him in a contest this past weekend at the American Rare Breed Association and Grizzly walked away with 49 ribbons!  Congratulations Grizzly! He is enormous, gorgeous and sweet temperment!

We took a hike up the mountain to take in some incredible views!

Beautiful foliage!
We stopped to see an old stone church, must have been a few centuries old... We felt as if we were somewhere in England back in time!

There is beauty everywhere...

We had such a wonderful weekend… Well needed time away especially for my hardworking husband!

Here are some beautiful spaces with different personalities I had gathered up to show...
