I've been given this great award from Ruth!
I quote:-

"Schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogsphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship".

Thanks, Ruth, I really appreciate this. I really enjoy visiting all my blogfriends!
I'm going to nominate Jo-ann
and JAM

Some readers may remember that we have been re-doing K's bedroom for her. Well, it's just about finished...her pictures still need to go up and a shelf too, but I hope you agree it's looking much better! now she just needs to keep it tidy! The first two shots so the "before" bedroom; the second two the "after".
What a lot of stuff she has.....!

Now after complete redecoration, new furniture and radical de-junking.....

I still need to get her a new computer chair and have her rug cleaned, then it's all done!


RUTH said...

Oh I do like her furniture and the blue on the walls is lovely. Hopefully now she'll keep it a bit tidier ;o)
So glad you like the award....I think you're a first class Schmoozer!

JAM said...

Wow. Thank you. Although the word schmooze is kind of hard to say with a southern drawl. I cannot roll r's so I totally stunk in Spanish class. The list goes on.

I like the before and after pics. My oldest daughter would let her room get out of control and then it would finally even drive her crazy, and she would clean it up, but it would take her for-ev-er.

Hi Julie,
Thankyou for "nominating my blog", esspecially because I like your photo-blog ( and website!) very much. What kind of nomination is this one?

I like the 'overview' of the room, haha !(before)I must not think about it that my room is filled like this....But its SO sweet to see all the toys and everything...(after) This looks a lot better! You did a good job, did she give a "thankyou" hugh?

Kate's room reminds me of my own when I was a teenager. I'm not much tidier now! I'm loving the colour scheme and the new furniture. CH

Leanne said...

Holy Cow!!! That is a major difference! Now I need to convince my kids that their rooms would still be "them" if they were clean.
