I finished something......

If you read my earlier post I was complaining about my unfinished projects. I finished one.....hooray!!! It was my grandmothers dining room set, I should say, the hutch.  It was very outdated, blonde wood....yikes, but it had delicate edges and I saw POTENTIAL, so we began this long process. My husband and I tackled it together and I love the way it turned out.  We painted it cream and sanded the edges, kept the black hardware and put my creamware back inside.....voila!!
So, feeling a bit good and crossing something off my long, seemingly endless list, today was a good day. We did hang the curtain rods, I still have to hem the edges of the curtains, so hopefully another project will be completely soon ;) 

On the art scene, some of my work is an Etsy shop for Spooky Time Jingles.  This is for a very limited time and I have special prices, so hurry on over and see!!! 
Chat Soon....xoxo

Still going....

My unfinished projects have got the best of me. 
I am still painting furniture, trim and trying to get my rooms back in order.
Spring time is always hectic for us.
Sport schedules, end of year programs at school, and more projects like yard work.
I am very happy being able to be outside more, but.....
When I spend more time outside....the inside gets neglected :(

The only project I have finished is a whimisical quilt.
Strawberries, polka dots, lady bugs and just full of fun~
I even recycled a cute sequined shirt.
It was my daughters and with left over scrap fabric, I made this sweet little pillow.
So, know we can snuggle up and read her favorite books.


I also finished my second half marathon.....this year a friend joined me and it was a blast.
The special treat was my husband and kids cheering me on every few miles....so special~
So know that you have seen my treats.
I wish all you moms a very special day on Sunday!!!
Happy Mother's Day~
xoxo
