Where in the world have I been? Well, if you must know… I have been right here in my home with not much to do and definitely not a whole lot to report. The cold weather is just not for me and the rain is for the birds!! There is snow in our forecast for Saturday and I think to myself “Where is the Fall weather?” I have been thinking alot lately about this winter. What in the world am I going to do with myself when I can’t get outside and work on my prim goodies that I so enjoy working on? I told my hubby that I was going to stock up on wood and make some signs and I was even going to try to start stitching. I love the little towel that Sherrie sent me so I was going to try my hand at it and see if I couldn’t try to make some cute little towels myself. I guess we will see. Anyway, I was down and out with a migraine today and Shawn stayed home with me. It was nice being able to sleep and rest while he took care of Cameron. I think around 4 pm my migraine started to disappear a bit and I was feeling much better. It is strange because I never use to get migraines until after Cameron was born and now I have them about once a month or every other month. Ughhh, I hate it when I get them.
Yesterday evening I decided to work on a few things here and there. I have been meaning to hang up all of my game boards and I finally got to it plus I hung up my towel rack. I am just not totally sold on the way that my towel rack looks so if you all have any suggestions that would be great. I wish I could put a bowl or something up there, but it is not meant for anything except towels. So, what do you all think of it? It seems to be missing something, but I just can’t figure it out.
Here are my game boards that I hung up in my hallway. I still have a few more to make and I also have a sign that says “Game Boards” so I still need to make it and get it up on the wall. Yep, I am always working on something or at least thinking about something (lol).
Here are a few more pics of tweaking that I have done here and there. I think I am pretty happy with the way my family room turned out. What do you think? Do you think it looks ok?
This is some tweaking I did in my kitchen a little while back. I love how it turned out. I just wanted to clear off my countertops a little bit here and there and that helped me accomplish that goal.
Anyway, that is pretty much all that I have done lately. I did go to the thrift store a couple days ago and found three ladder back chairs. Totally fell in love with them especially for $9.00, but the cane seating was in AWFUL shape. It looked like the previous owners had cats and the cats must have used the cane seating as a scratching post so I left them there and was quite upset that I had no idea how to re-cane them. Ughhh, what a disappointment!
I leave you with this tonight…. we went to the pumpkin patch over the weekend and I bought a couple things for myself, but my favorite thing was this gourd that I found. I am going to try to dry it when Fall is over and hopefully it will turn out for next year. I guess we will see. Can you imagine how great it would look dried and in my Fall decorations? Wish me luck ladies!
