Happy happy New Year to you all! I bet you have all kinds of new years resolutions thought of already don’t you?

I am sitting here picking out pecans. Got them cracked and now picking out the hulls. I NEED to be in there in that master bathroom getting it all primed and ready for my paint.

I took the wallpaper off the walls in there. It’s been on there for over 20 years now and I needed a change. So I started taking the mess off. I sure hope I NEVER put wallpaper on my walls again. That was a mess! The folks that put it on to begin with didn’t prime the walls first so needless to say even though I used a wallpaper steamer I STILL tore the sheetrock up pretty bad!

So I got in there and got the walls mudded to repair all my tears and finally got that done. Then I sanded it and started priming the walls. I just did around the trim for now and need to go now and get them primed and finished so I can paint.

The smell is horrible in here and now I have a headache. Did a search online last night to see HOW to get the paint smell out and it said to cut a onion and put it in water and sit it in there. Did that and I do think it helped SOME but still have a smell and now I smell onions to. lol although onions aren’t bad for your health and paint fumes are.

Anyway I wanted to make a post and wish you all a very HAPPY NEEW YEAR!!!


And PUNKY, thank you SO MUCH! I’m fine just been a little busy, that’s all. Smile I hope you have a great healthy year!

I'd never heard the tip about the onion.

Removing wallpaper is quite the chore; I bet it feels good to be done with that task!

Hi Rose,
I haven't checked your blog for a little while--I got a new sewing machine and I've been practicing all sorts of new stuff!! One of my projects made it onto the Bernina Blog:
