|Shades of red with pink and yellow thrown in...another crocheted tissue box -- pattern from Michelle The Royal Sisters (here) -- just right to go in our Guest Bedroom.|
|I have a red leather chair (passed down from my brother) in the guest bedroom and I have slowly been adding other elements of red in the room.|
|We bought the green bedside lamp bases for $5 each...and we added the shades later.|
|My paternal Grandmother made the yarn scarf that the tissue box is sitting on.|
|Red and PINK with Yellow Shell Edge|
I just finished making a Christmas Tissue Box cover....got to have one for Christmas! That's the last one for awhile.
ON THE HOME FRONT
We had a new garbage disposal installed recently in the kitchen. The old one rusted through and gushed water and garbage all over the place the day before we were taking off on our Alaska tour. We cleaned up the mess, taped over the hole and put blue tape over the switch. It's a good thing we did because when we got back home we both had forgotten about it breaking. I'm in the kitchen asking hubby "Why is there tape over the garbage disposal switch?" Duh...thank goodness hubby remembered. We are very happy with our new one - it's super quiet and very powerful.
Over the years we have always purchased our major appliances from Sears. A couple of years ago we replaced our GE refrigerator with a stainless steel one that we again purchased from Sears. We were soooo disappointed with their installation process. It took weeks to have it delivered...then the delivery men refused to do any installation of the water line. We had to have them come out again and they finally hooked up the water line for the ice machine (the water line was already there they just had to connect it to the refrigerator).
After that disappointing service from Sears hubby went to Lowe's and bought a garbage disposal there and signed up for installation through Lowe's. That same afternoon Lowe's called us to follow up on our purchase and to let us know that an installer would call us back within 48 hours. The installation process from Lowe's went so smoothly and hassle free. The installer called us within the time frame and installed the appliance so quickly...within a day of his call. He was on time and professional. And...Lowe's called again after installation to check that everything went ok. We never had any store ever call us both pre and post installation and we were very impressed with the excellent customer service we received from Lowe's.
Thanks for taking the time to visit me! Have a lovely weekend.
