A WINNER ....and an apology!

I know...I am a couple of days late here. I could make excuses...but really, it doesn't matter....I am just late getting this posted! :) Sorry!

Anyway....the WINNER of the fat quarters from Maui is ..

     Betty Lou has left a new comment on your post "home sweet home":

     Welcome home, hope your winter get-away was as wonderful as your pictures. We lived on the     beach of Oahu, Hawaii for four year in the 70,s. would love a couple weeks back there again to hear the sound of the waves crashing on the beach.

Congratulations Betty Lou! I know this isn't quite the same as hearing the sound of the waves crashing on the beach..but maybe will give you a little reminder of the islands! I have emailed you, so please send me your address. 

Why I am so late here is because I was out in Calgary helping my daughter paint her apartment! 

And her dog , Zoe helped us too !!

We worked hard, and got most of it done in 2 days.  Saved some for another trip LOL!
And I wanted to pass along a great tip I found on Pinterest. I always save the leftover paint to repair chips and scratches as the year goes by, but what a lot of room they take up. So.....great idea here....
fill small jars with some of the paint...you dont need much for touch ups...and label it with the room painted and the kind of paint.

Then you can get rid of the big paint cans!! We have a place here that recycles paint, which is great. So all these are stored in a little box in the closet! What a great idea...why didn't I think of that years ago ???


  1. Great idea for the leftover paint! Congrats to Betty Lou :-)

  2. So sorry Flo, that I didn't get back to you sooner but have been down with a. bug and didn't go out to the mailbox for three days. To my surprise was the lovely package from you with the beautiful Hawaiian fabrics to brighten my day. Thank you so much and I will think of you and the beautiful Hawaiian islands when I look ar them.


Please leave a comment or just say hello....It's nice to know I am not talking to myself!
