Rusty Metal Box

Hello Friends,
It's almost Friday!!
Do you ever feel there is not enough time in the day?
I have been working on several projects, trying to get them done all at once, which we know never works out, lol.

Hey Friends, it's snowing again, lol. This is the most snow we have had in Oregon in years! We have had snow on the ground since December, which in my part of the woods is unheard of. Maybe two weeks at the very most and I tell you what, I'm getting tired of it and want spring to show up, lol.

Here is a look of what I have been up to while it's been snowing outside.

 I have wanted to paint our kitchen for some time now. It hasn't been painted for twenty some years. I painted the trim around the kitchen finally but still have the ceiling to do!
Here is what is done so far.

Hey Friends, it's been awhile! I had a nice little break and am ready to get back to work or blogging. I have enjoyed stopping at many of your blogs and enjoying the articles and eye candy.

I have decided to change things up here on my blog. Different heading and changing a few things here and there as I get the time. I hope you all had a good new year! I can't believe it's Valentine's already. Just shipped a pom pom banner of sorts to my daughter that I made. I got the inspiration from Have A Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson. I didn't have the gadget she had and I was swearing by the time I finished, lol. I didn't think making pom poms were that hard, ha!

Here they are in my daughters room, she loved them.

Here they are in our home right after I made them.

The darn yarn kept sticking to my hands. But I think they turned out good!

Do you decorate for Valentines?

Taking a break

I would like to let everyone know that I am taking a break from blogging. I don't think I have many followers but for those of you that do I don't know if or when I will be back. Thank you to all who have taken the time to leave comments, I appreciated every one of them.

Metal Picture Redo

I've had this metal picture hanging around for years! I bought two of them at a yard sale about 15 years ago and hung them up outside on our deck. You can imagine over 15 years the pictures that were on there had faded, lol. I kept saying I would put something else in its place, which were four pictures of various wine labels that were on them when I bought them. Finally I have decide to make them over. Here we go!

Goodwill Hunting

Since returning home I have been busy painting up a storm! I also need to get out and do some gardening and finish the deck but best laid plans and all that, lol.

Today I am going to show you what I found at my local Goodwill. I usually go in thinking I won't find anything but that was not the case yesterday. Here we go.

First off I bought 12, 1/2 pint canning jars that were new and unopened for $3.99, score. Always need those! Didn't get a picture of those, we all know what they look like, lol.

I love this little Paris chest!! It's very clean on the outside and the inside. I don't think anyone used it!

Pink Cabinet Redo!!

I am slow at getting projects painted but I am getting there. 
I bought this cabinet with a truck load of other goodies from a friend of mine about two months ago.
I haven't showed any of them so far but I will as I go along.
So here is the Pink Cabinet.

Another month gone!

Where does the time go?? I have been to Colorado in Sept. to help my daughter move into her own place, then back to our place in Oregon to clean the house and off to another part of Oregon to help my sister move out of her house. It has been a busy month and now we are into October. I have even a bigger mess that I left at our house. Both my daughter and sister gave me things to take back and now I am in a painting mode.Here we go!! Remember this little number?This is the Before picture.

Modern Furniture Fab Fine

I can't believe it has been over a month since my last post!! How does that happen? It goes by so fast and it seems like I am collecting more things than I am finishing, lol, but I am having fun doing so.
Which brings me to this little find.

Just washed off the deck so we can paint or stain it. Looks so nice wet but not so much when it dries out.

It is modern style and usually I am not drawn to that style but I thought this was way cool.  

The question..... What should I do with it? 
Should I paint it and then leave it with the same legs and handles? 
Or put new handles and legs on or just handles or just legs????

What would you do?
Let me know in the comments.

Wonderful 4th of July Findings

Happy 4th of July!!

I've been busy these last couple of weeks!
We went to Colorado to visit my daughter, it was so good to see her again. How I miss her!

While visiting her, we stopped in at a couple of thrift stores and 
can I just say I wish we had thrift stores here like they do in Colorado.
To bad we only had our car, I could have loaded up a truck or two, lol.

While in Colorado (pics coming), I was bidding on the fab mirror back home and won, love 
the internet.

Here are the pics from the auction.

Here is a close up of the goodness on the mirror!
