Mosaic Monday

Pin It Now!

Click on photo to enlarge
I'm joining in on Mary's (Little Red House) Mosaic Monday today! I've been so busy lately I haven't had much time to take pictures for my blog and the pictures that I have taken are still sitting in the camera waiting to be uploaded. I had to once again use old photos...hope you don't mind. You can click on the photo to enlarge it.

The New Year started off in a horrible way for us! I had to rush Lauren to the emergency room on New Years Day around 6pm because she had a horrible asthma attack which was triggered by a bad cold she caught. She's doing better after spending over 5 hours receiving breathing treatments there. Her asthma has never been that bad before so it was very scary! The doctors and the nurses in the emergency room were so amazing and so caring, it really does take a special person to do those jobs! I really admire them and if you happen to be one of them...thank you, for doing what you do!

Yesterday I went to the Alameda Flea market and bought something wonderful! I'll be sharing that soon!

Please stop by Mary's blog to see more wonderful photo mosaics!

I'm sorry to hear that you and Lauren had such a scare....but glad to hear she's better.
I always love looking at your photos and never get tired of seeing them again.
Happy New Year.

Glad to hear that Lauren is doing better. That is such a scary ordeal for both the person having the attack and the one watching and feels helpless. Hubs has gone through bouts the same. We tore up all the carpet in the house and stained the concrete, made a huge difference. Keep that inhaler in reach and Lauren is in my prayers.

Love the mosaic!
I never tire of your pics!
I just ooooh and aaawww over them!
Glad to hear Lauren is better.
I know that was scarey.
Hugs to you!

As someone who suffers from asthma, I know first hand how scary the attacks can be. I'm just glad Lauren is OK now.
Your mosaic is lovely, I never tire of looking at them.

So sorry about your scare!

Mary said...

Omigosh Cindy, I'm so sorry you had such a scare, and I'm glad Lauren is feeling better!

As always, your home is simply stunning! What was the name of that Alexandra Stoddard book -- Living Beautifully? You certainly embody that every day!

Thanks for sharing at Mosaic Monday. :)

What a way to stat the new year Cindy! I am so glad Lauren is ok now. Hopefully that won't happen again. I never get tired of seeing your beautiful photos, old or not!

Cindy, so good to know Lauren was well taken care of, my God, that must has been very scary to you.
Wish she recovers completely and that you find the cause of her illness.

Your mosaic is so lovely with pictures of your beatiful white decor.
Muchos cariños,
María Cecilia

Gosh Cindy I sure hope Lauren is
better. I hate to hear anyone being
sick during holidays. Your right it
does take a special person to work
in the ER. My neighbor who is now
a retired nurse used to do that.
I love your photos and could look
at them over and over again. Take
care of Lauren that is all that

Linda @ A La Carte said...

So glad that Lauren is better. I do know the fear of rushing a child to the emergency room. Asthma is scary! Looking forward to seeing your find.

Carolyn said...

I never tire of seeing your beautiful photos!

Lynn said...

Hi Cindy,
Not the way to start the year off. That had to be so scary for both of you. Glad she is doing better now. I could look at these pictures all the time. Each time I see something new that I had not focused on before. Never did find any etched glass cloches this year at Marshall's or Home Goods. So I just have to continue to drool over yours.

Cottage Rose said...

I an so glad that you daughter is better, hope her cold goes away soon.. I never get tired of seeing some of your old photos.. so you can show them any time you want.... lol

Have a great week.


Esther Sunday said...

Wow. Sorry to hear about Lauren, and so glad she is ok. Being a mom, I can't even imagine how scary that would be!

Nany said...

I'm visiting you for the first time today and just wanted to say how pretty your mosaic is. I love the central photo featuring the large cloche.
Glad that your daughter is feeling better.

Wow! What a wonderful mosaic, what a lovely home you have :)

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Cindy....How scary for you and Lauren! Glad she was taken care of so compassionately by the er staff.~Patti

WendyBee said...

Oh, Cindy,
Poor Lauren! And poor you! Asthma can be so unpredictable...Glad she's feeling better, though.
Your photo mosaic is gorgeous. Your creativity and talent just shines through.
And thank you so much for your gracious and kind comment on my blog. I was worried about putting bloggers off, or getting noses out of joint if they were not into the tag/award thing.
I must admit I feel a little sheepish about the "No Tags" button, though. I have seen them, it turns out, but lost all sense in my excitement. At some time or another, I did read the words, but since then, I've just enjoyed how cute the little girls and forgotten why they're there, since heretofore, it wasn't relevant to me! (feeling a bit too self-absorbed here....) Anyway, 'nuff said, you've clearly forgiven me my folly, and I've learned a valuable lesson!

Carol said...

Glad Lauren is better. Your pictures are so pure & sweet!

Becky from Tennessee said...

I'm sorry you and Lauren had
to start the new year in such
a scary way. Hope the rest
of 2010 will find you both
healthy and having the best
year yet!
Love the always,

DreamgirlLisa said...

Oh gosh, that is so scary. I am glad she's ok now. Hopefully the rest of your year will be much better than that.


Dear Cindy,
I am new to your site and I am so amazed at your decorating skills. I am interested in doing my home in the romantic style but don't know how to get started? Any tips? I'm sorry about Lauren, as I too have breathing problems and it can be so scary, glad she is better.

Cindy said...

Hi Sharon,

You can find a lot of inspiration by looking at blogs that decorate in the Romantic Style. I started by painting a lot of my furniture white. I also found furniture at thrift stores, craigslist and flea markets that I could paint. You can find vintage dishes, linens, glassware, etc. on eBay. Little by little you can transform your home over time which is what I have done.
