In memory of the lives lost in CT

I was going to forego the bows on my Christmas tree this year but decided that I would put 26 bows on it to remember the lives lost in the Connecticut tragedy.  Maybe you can all find a way to do the same.

Rest In Peace.

I finally broke out my sewing machine and made curtains for my kitchen door. I wanted to coordinate them with the faux roman shade I made earlier! It’s been a longtime since I’ve sewn. It was really fun. I plan on doing more sewing in the very near future :)

It’s been so long since I have posted anything.  It’s been a little crazy around here but I finally finished my Farm Table.  Check it out.

I took this little ole thing

broke it down to use the legs

and turned it into this magnificent new dining table. Just in time for the holidays!

Do you love it as much as I do?

Farm Table

I finally started building my Farm Table.  I got my inspiration http://ourvintagehomelove.blogspot.com/2012/06/dining-room-table-tutorial.html.  I love how hers came out and, though I’m going with different colors, hope my comes out as well.  It’s a little nerve wracking but I’m taking one step at a time.  I really want it done for Thanksgiving.  My plan: Build an 8′ x 3 1/2′ table. First step: sand and then stain.  Now we wait for it to dry :)

I don’t think I’m going to get to work on it again until next Saturday.  Slow and steady ;)

Halloween fun

Yesterday we made a scarecrow for the front yard.  I love how he came out.  What do you think?

Wow.  There isn’t enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.  I have fallen off the wagon in regards to my blog posts.  Started a part time job too.  It’s going to be a challenge to balance everything.  Hoping to have another project to post soon.  Thanks for your patience :)

Halloween pumpkins

My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter, Kinsley and I made Halloween pumpkins out of styrofoam.  We had so much fun.  Here are the results:
