A Little of This...A Little of That

Hello everyone! Sorry it's been such a long time since my last post. My blog seems to be the last thing that I think of these days. You will find me mostly on Instagram, and sometimes on Facebook.

Thought I would share a couple of things with you today; first, I've started working on some sweet pretties for Valentines day. Below are photos of 2 items that I have finished and listed on eBay. If you would like to check them out, just click the link on my right sidebar to take you there.

Here is something that I am so super happy and proud to tell you about! Our youngest son, Austin, who is attending Oakland University in Rochester Michigan, is part of the Football club, which is only in it's second year of existence! Well, they finished this year undefeated, 9-0, and also won the Great Lakes Championship, and then went to Salem, Virginia, and won the NCFA NATIONAL Championship! We were unable to make the 12 hour drive there, but I did sit right in front of my computer and listened to the live audio stream of the game .... I was cheering and screaming right along, lol.
Below are a couple of photos that were taken after the game, and you can see Austin, number 42!
Way to go Oakland Grizzlies!!!

Thank you for stopping by and visiting! I'll TRY not to be so long in posting again
Until next time sweet friends!!

Our Dining Room Makeover

Hello everyone! I FINALLY am getting around to putting together this post to show you all our Dining Room makeover ~ Originally it had pink carpet and pink and white striped wallpaper. Now it has a more Shabby Chic look, which I love so much better! We removed the carpet to expose the original hardwood flooring; sanded it...sanded it again...and yet again, lol, then finally put down the stain and poly. Removed the pink and white striped wallpaper, and put up a Beadboard style wallpaper. We also sold the Oak dining room table, and had this fabulous farmhouse table custom made. The top is made from VERY old large barnwood planks. I painted it with Annie Sloan's Old white, but did a rub finish for the top so that you could still see some of the wood grain showing thru.

This sweet vintage cabinet was a Goodwill find for only $8. It was painted a cute baby blue, but I chose to paint it this fab pink color.

This very old farmer's wood caddy was found in an old fallen down barn by my husband, which he brought to me, and I gave it a makeover with Annie Sloan's Chalk paint in the Antoinette color.

I hope you enjoyed the photos of our dining room makeover!
Until next time sweet friends!

Items currently available in my eBay shoppe

Hello everyone! Just popping in to say hello, as it has been a while since my last post. Thought I would share a few photos of some new items that I have listed in my eBay. I've worked on some really shabby chic stockings for the upcoming Christmas holiday. LOVE creating this style, more simple! And more in keeping with how I am decorating my own home. I also have a fab wall rack that I created using vintage wood, metal hooks, and painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, in the Antoinette color. Love this soft shabby shade of pink!

We finally have our Dining Room makeover all finished, and will do a post showing you pictures of it in a day or so.

Until next time sweet friends!!
