Fall is in the air!

This morning I had an idea. So, while still in my pajamas, I go out to the little area on the corner of our street and the main street, where I know there are tons of fallen leaves from the Japanese Maple tree that grows near the pond. I set up the scene and begin the "Fall" photo session. Little did I know what joy this would bring to passerby's out walking their dogs. I even heard a grumpy old man, who as never said a word, say under his breath as he walked by , "Well that is the cutest things I have seen in a long time". Of course, he may have been referring to my pajamas, lol. How delightful!

I am so excited about the response to my "Just K.I.D.S" bratz transformed dolls. Many of you know that I transformed 100 "bratz" dolls in order to raise money for an organization that helps rescue kids from the sex trafficking industry! The campaign is well underway with 31 dolls sold to date. The goal is to have them all sold before Christmas in order to present a check to the organization before the holiday season. The extra wonderful thing about this campaign is that many of the ladies that have purchased the dolls for the little girls in their lives have sent pictures of the little girls holding their dolls and their little faces say it all! Kids absolutely love K.I.D.S!

If you want to make the little girls in your life really happy and at the same time help other kids, I encourage you to visit my shop and make your purchase.

Painted Patio Wall Transformation - Our New "Secret Garden"

Michael and I have discovered a Secret Garden every where we have lived since getting married in 2010.  Whether it was the creek that ran behind our first apartment in Sacramento or the tiny little space of our 520 square foot, 1962 single-wide, mobile home in Rancho Cordova, California, we were always able to discover and create a unique sanctuary to call home.  Even though, in years past, we did what we could to make our surroundings uniquely wonderful, we never had the room to go really crazy until now.

Since moving to our new home in North Carolina in May, we have not only discovered a world of exotic creatures and plants outdoors, but we have also started taking full advantage of the additional space we now have available to add our own touch of whimsy to the new "Wood's Secret Garden".

Our first major project was the Patio which joins the in-law quarters (where mom lives) to the kitchen entrance into the main house.  We have received so many questions about "…

On the Market and Creating Quite a Stir! - Mobile Home for Sale in Rancho Cordova UPDATE: Sold

For those of you who have been following me on, you are already aware of all the work that went into making this 1964, single-wide, mobile home into what it is today.  We have enjoyed living in it for the past two and half years.  However, we will eventually be moving to North Carolina and therefore will be putting our little house on the market.  If you are interested in buying it, please leave a comment.  It is located in Rancho Cordova, California in a gated senior park and the lot space per month is under $700.    Take a look around and let others know who are 55+ and would like to own this little house.   Let me know if you have any questions.  It will come with lots of little extra's!

Living Room will come with the floor to ceiling oak wall unit, the Faux Fireplace Heater, the floor lamp, and the large framed mirror.

Kitchen includes a new refrigerator, new Range Top, microwave, toaster oven, and a wave oven.  If you want the built in desk that can also be arran…

Just a few more a working shower!

As promised, the following are some "after" pictures.  We have moved everything in and organized most of our things.  We still have several all day projects, like replacing the diverter valve and the washers in the shower.  Currently no functioning shower; but, I can always take a bath until we can get this done.  Yuck!

No time to write.  Just enough time to post a few pictures:

and clearly - Monkey is back to normal!
