Girls having fun!

Would you believe?

1.  I made some changes
(remember I'm the girl who likes to get it the way I like it and leave it)
2.  I had help via e-mail!
(you didn't think this was possible)


That's right!
A blogging friend, Janette over at Janette Sage,
 and I have been having fun communicating by e-mail.
I typed the words on the screen,
 "I'm wanting to move my Living Room furniture around,
but, just don't believe there is another way to place the furniture."

Oh, she loved that one! 
She went back to an earlier post found this picture I had shared
and whipped out a plan and sent it via e-mail.

Is that not cool?  Moving furniture over the phone lines?
Except she didn't feel the pain...
 oh, she was kind and e-mailed back the next day.
The subject line read "YOU OK?"
Nothing an Aleve wouldn't fix.


I love it! 
 Just something to fight the same old same old!

One great suggestion that Janette made that I will share:
You have diagonal lines in your scored concrete
floors, you must be sure your rug lines up with these (same angle)
or it will appear off.

I placed the rug first and everything else fell into place (almost).
It wasn't quite that simple, but close!

What do you think?
I believe it went from Boring to Better!
Oops, Kim changed the name on us to

Join in the fun!

Beautiful Karen! It is always so fun to see posts with pictures of your lovely home in them. It is arranged just perfectly and it looks beautiful! :-)

Sandy said...

First of all, Janette is wonderful! Now, that
said, your living area looks just great! She
did a super job of making it seem so much
more cozy and warm. Your home is beautiful
anyway, Karen, but it really looks even
better now. I think it's good for the soul
to occasionally change things around a bit.

Your home looked lovely before but I do believe it looks cosier now. I love your colour scheme. Isn't technology amazing?

I think Jeannette should go into business as a redesigner. (Or IS she that already?) I love the changes, and I think it's marvelous that you did it all via blogfriend express.
