I grew up in Charleston,WV and graduated from Charleston High School in 1988. (WOW...where has the time gone to?) After graduating, I attended Marshall University. (Was probably there a little longer than I was suppose to be). While at my stay in Huntington, I majored in advertising and minored in marketing through the school of Journalism. I later met my root to Jackson county (my ex husband) and we moved here to start our family and I finished my degree. I live in Ravenswood and have 2 sons, Hayden and Trey. Hayden is a freshman at Ravenswood High School. He is a member of the football and basketball teams. Trey attends Ravenswood Grade School and is in 5th grade. Trey plays basketball and recently was selected to be on the Elite Team at the Elite Center in Parkersburg. So between the 2 of them, we stay pretty busy with their sports schedules, etc.

I live in a home built in the late 1800's. Boy ole' boy has it been a continuous project since day one! Like many, there is either not enough money or there is not enough time.

Everything I've decorated with in the past sparks a memory today like a old song on the radio... It's fun looking at old photos and seeing items that made your space your \x34home\x34 years ago. . I have kept a few of my favorite decorations and have incorporated them in my home now, minus the yard sale mallards which hopefully flew south.

I look forward sharing home decor ideas with you through this blog and would love to hear your stories and ideas on what makes your house your \x34home\x34!

Ikea monkey | Photo Credits: CTV

A monkey, found wearing a thick shearling coat and a diaper, was found roaming outside a Toronto Ikea store Sunday, The Globe and Mail reports.



Toronto Police Staff Sergeant Ed Dzingala described the animal as a "smart monkey" that was left in the car while its owners shopped. He said that the monkey was somehow able to escape its crate, open the car door and make its way to the customer pick-up area at a North York Ikea.

Ikea employees ushered the monkey into the store and called animal control while the owners were shopping inside the store. No harm came to the monkey, who was described as scared by the attention. The owners later came forward and were charged a $240 fine for having a prohibited animal and the monkey was taken into custody by animal services, according to a CTV News reporter.



News of the monkey quickly spread online after a customer posted a photo, and two joke accounts soon popped up: @IkeaMonkey and @Ikea_Monkey.
