Hey! It was great to read everyone's comments last week. I love to hear what others are doing. It is inspiring when I get slowed down.
So.... this is not decorating, but it is related. I have knee problems, and this gets in the way of my projects from time to time. But lately- the knee problems have been worse, and constant. So.... I am actually going to see a doctor about this. (for me this is a big thing- I don't like going to the doctor). So, this is my first goal- to get my knees figured out! (that way I'll be in better shape for other projects!)
I'm also continuing working on the Mudroom in a box. I figure this will probably take me at least two more weeks to completely finish- but I am making good progress on it. I'll post more pictures as I work on it.
Also- continued work on the garden/yard is in order... though with temperatures in the 90s this week, I'll probably limit this a bit.
So- what are all of you up to? Can't wait to hear!

Hi TQ. I'm thrilled to finally have something to post to this thread.
I have about 100 necklaces (including chains, pearls etc.) DH had previously made me a peg rack but it had only 10 pegs and was overloaded.
Since I love my necklaces so much I decided I wanted them in full view. Asked DH to cut me a 1 X 3 the right length and glued a piece of vintage wallpaper border to it, and then filled it with cup hooks (27) I think I can fit a few more into it!
So now the "jewelry" of my room is Jewelry!
TQ about your knee. I too have knee problems, and one of my sisters told me that several of them take glucosamine condritin (sp?) it truly works. Also I found that my dollar store sells this for much less than a pharmacy.

TQ, Sorry about your knee. DH has problems and someone recommended something to him a few years ago 'Move Free' wich is Glucosamine Hydorchloride and Chondroitin Sulfates, and Hyaluronic Acid. It worked fine for him till starting last fall.
His knee is getting worse, of course he 'felt' better so he did more! So our doctor recently told him to UP his Hyaluronic Acid by taking that straight. Osto Bi-Flex is what he found at Walmart which is this stuff and also contains Manganese and Vitamin C, has more in it too, but in increased the Hyaluronic Acid which helped a couple of my DH's brothers feel relief too. So, in his family this seems to help, he is walking around like he has no knee issues again.
This worked wonders for my DH and maybe it might help others too. Of course my DH's knee problems ARE related to the joint fluid, if your knee issues are not related to that, like muscles or tendons then the help will have to come by what your doctor recommends. Good luck!
LOS, I am not a better speller than you with those names... I copied right off the bottle! LOL
Tomatoqueen...ask your doc about choices for your knee. When mine started acting up, I was just sure I needed surgery. Not so. he gave me exercises and I did go to p.therapy that helped tremendously. He recommended Osteo bi-flex and I did have a synvsk injection. My knee is 99% I would now say.
The only trouble I have is if I go bare foot all day...I really must wear a good shoe; NewBalance do well for me ...
Best of luck to you HUGSsssssssss!

Ouch! I sprained/strained my MCL years ago - NOT FUN. Hope the doc checks your feet and back too, my knees only hurt when my back is out.
I have 8 people stopping in for a visit tomorrow and this house is a disaster! Just do not have the energy to clean the carpets. I don't think the kids will mind sleeping on it, but their mothers might!
We finally hung the antique oak fleur de lis shelf. HUGE heavy thing and it took several attempts. Now that the chest is next to it, I really want to make a color/paint decision so that the two will coordinate. We also scheduled another appointment for kitchen planning. The floor in the foyer (shown here as well) will be tiled when the kitchen is done - if I can make up my mind about flooring! And then we'll have to decide on trim and light fixtures. it never ends...This message has been edited. Last edited by: junk collector,

junk collector, NOPE it never ends! DH and I bought the model of a development he was building in, why? 'cause a new house won't need remodeling'! ha ha we worked on that house for 8 years!
Once you 'upgrade' one area the one next to it needs updating too, and so on. Like you don't notice how worn your shoes are till you get a new dress to wear! lol Then you need shoes, purse, belt, jewelry, etc.!!! never ends!
Oh the shelf looks good! I would coordinate that little chest to go with the shelf since that is a 'keeper' too!
