So many people out and about in their yards - not like during the work-week when you may see them rushing to or from their cars.
Now they are out in the yard, willing to stop and chat while I walk the pups. One woman tells me of her husband's hip replacement - one tells me of his day of fertilizing the yard, several wave as they ride past on their bicycles. Other dogs out for Braxton & Lulu to say "Hi" to...
But, here's the best part of this find....Yes - it was $12.oo !!
I'm going to paint it Robin's Egg Blue and we're adding a decorative scroll on the back as that's the part that will face outward when looking into my room.We got some simple glass knobs and I will line the drawers with pretty scrapbook paper. I'm very excited because this will be my first attempt at re-finishing a piece. Look for "after" photos soon!
I want to buy a glass top for protection as well as a showcase for photos, etc. similar to what I have done with an old coffee table in the back room:
This was so much fun to fill with old photos - and I can change them to display new-old ones too!
And I have always wanted a hand. A hand? Yep, a hand....
Ah huh, I do have the "2 GI hands" (God Issued) , but I wanted one to keep rings and things on and I found this one at Home Goods.
It's kind of flimsy, but I really love it. I added the pink ribbon and the "remember" rub-on. I like the way it turned out, I just wish it was sturdier.
Well, that's about all I've got for today. Stay tuned for the updates on my desk - I think it will be perfectly-wonderfully-wonderful when I'm all through!
Have an awesome Sunday, Sunday, Sunday....
