Make over time

Shhh, don't tell Ken but when he get's home tonight I am surprising him with a make over in his garage. He has scouts tonight and they are working in the garage. I really hope they all like how "he" has decorated his man spot.

I provided before and after pictures so you all can see what a difference a table cloth and a few accessories can make on just a plain ugly work bench.

Maci's Pillow

Ken was out of town last week and I need a project to do at night while I sat around and ate chocolate and watched chick flicks. So I decided to make a pillow for Maci's room. I found several pieces of fabric that matches the colors and I picked out 5 different fabrics and two different netting materials to make several circles of different size's and fabric's.
I traced the bottom of jars, candles sticks and cups to get the right circles for each layer.
Then layered all the different circles on top of each other with the netting between some of the circles. I also put a button on top of each circle and and hand stitched around the pillow with purple thread.

Maci is just like her momma and thinks you can never, never have too many pillows.

Grandma came to Texas!

I have the Best Mother in Law in the world!!! A few weeks ago Marjean came to visit us. We had such a good time laughing, playing, shopping at Sam Moons (a highlight of the visit for me) letting the girls ditch school and go to the Zoo. We had so much fun with Grandma that when is was time for her to get on the plane to go home, the tears from all of us were coming. She really is the best! We love you so much and can't wait till the next visit.

(Mom I have not forgotten I will send you pictures)

Fix and SOLD!

Don't you just love this $20.00 find. It has been the biggest pain to fix up. The drawers would not even open and it must have had at least 6 coats of petobismo pink paint on it. But with tons of heavy duty sanding, new knobs and a fresh coast of paint......CHA CHING!
