After much serious thought I've decided to dedicate the last post of the year to:
(drum roll, please)


These windows make me dizzy.

3 words:  fire your contractor

 I can't tell if these steps are going up or coming down!

 Mad Cow disease?

 Creepy chair

 Hanging staircase?  You go first!

Moral:  always get references before hiring a brick layer

 Life is crazy enough without having to live with this style!

 This proves why Bohemian Chic isn't catching on.

 Is this a house or a terrarium?

 Even Pottery Barn doesn't make bird nest sheets.

 Disco bedroom, anyone?  Or is this
the movie Tron come to life?

Um . . . .  there are no words.

And, ladies, you don't have to prove how much you love
your man by allowing him to have a bat cave.  Period.

Friends, I hope you got a laugh out of today's post.  Please know that I truly appreciate your spending a moment of your day at fleaChic and hope you have a very Happy New Year!

P.S. Still haven't resolved the 'comments' problem.  I read your messages, I just can't reply to them.  My New Years Resolution?  Get the Comments Issue resolved once and for all!

Here are some of the saddest statistics I've ever read:

Is it just me or is it obvious to everyone what
the solution is to these outrageous facts?

Reading Nooks! 




 Such a simple, sweet beach-y retreat.


The morale of today's post?
Improve reading rates - build a nook!

Today is the last Repurposeful Monday of 2014 and I'm going to indulge myself with my favorite type of repurposing - converting old barns into homes.  


Beautiful stone barn before:

Even more beautiful stone barn after:


A pile-of-rubble barn, before:

A collection-of-rocks barn, after:

Over 100 years ago this barn was converted
to a residence but later abandoned:
What a beautiful rescue.

Who would have believed that this
heap-of-a-barn was salvageable?

Oh, my:
I'm a believer!

An old dairy operation was converted . . . . . 

. . . . . into a lovely family home.  Click here
for more pictures of the amazing transformation.

Now, for some miscellaneous photos of
barn renovations with stunning interiors:

Beam me up, Scottie!
