Have you been enjoying 2015 so far? It has been a rainy one here in GA and we woke up to a flood in our basement this morning. OMG! Apparently, a critter of some sort (probably a chipmunk) built a nest or something in our drainage pipe that allows water to drain off the foundation of our house. So it became clogged. As a result, all the water from the rain we've been having seeped into our basement and garage. What a mess! My husband had to use a shop vac to get it up and then mop the area with some bleach and water. We have a dehumidifier running and some fans and plan on getting some Damp X to absorb any more moisture there is. What a mess! Not a very good start to the new year, huh?
However, on the flip side, I have been busy taking down Christmas decorations and making new arrangements around the house. That's always fun!
Here are just a few pics of some of the changes I've made.
Some paper whites now sit in the center of the dining room table.
White hydrangeas in the foyer.
Topiaries on the coffee table.
My wooden horse statue is now on top of the mantel.
Found this cute crochet sweater pillow and added it to this chair.
New arrangement on the chest of drawers.
These are just a few changes I've made. Don't you always change things up a bit after you take holiday decorations down?
I guess the only silver lining to a flooded basement/garage is that it's getting a good cleaning now! Luckily, nothing was damaged either.
I'm trying to stay positive in 2015! Guess I'm getting my first test.
Thanks for stopping by.
