Trying To Keep All The Balls In The Air


Hello everyone!

I haven’t posted since before Christmas. It’s been a busy time around here. I’m juggling as fast as I can right now.

We had a wonderful Christmas with our oldest and his girlfriend here for Christmas. Then we had a great visit with my husband’s childhood friend and his delightful girlfriend.

We went to Hood River OR a few days before Christmas and this photo above was taken in front of the most beautiful REAL Christmas tree in the restaurant where we had a yummy dinner.

2012 is here whether I am ready or not…

I did get to the store to bring a few more pieces and just plan freshen up the space and remove any holiday items that were remaining.

I’m loving this super rustic work table that I modified to a rolling cart/island.

Here’s how it started out. Funny side note: When I asked the guy running the estate sale how much the table was, he didn’t think anyone would want it, but sold it to me anyway…

Go figure : )

004This is what it looks like now. I covered up the hold in the front with a piece of trim and then added a wooden towel bar to the side for fun and functionality.

I also added some nice caster wheels to make it easy to move around.



Here’s a little table/desk I finished and brought in.


A gorgeous old dining table that I updated by painting the detailed base and apron in ASCP Old White.


and here’s a piece of local subway art that I did featuring historic streets in my town. The first one I did before Christmas flew out the door in a day or two..


Yep, 2012 is off to a busy start and my head is buzzing with all the projects I can complete this year. I’m lucky to have my Dad with me here for a few weeks to run around with me and deliver furniture.

He even brought some treasures from home.

I guess collecting treasures runs in the family.

It’s feels good to be back here posting and I look forward to a great year of learning, growing and creating.

I hope your off to a great start.

Welcome 2012!
