Painted Cabinet - Pure & Original White


I'm glad you're here.

I want to say thank you to all of you who commented on my last post. It's so nice to know that you are out there. Support and encouragement are always welcome. I wish I could have replied to each of you, but for reasons I don't know, some of your comments come with reply email address and some of them do not. So whether you received a reply from me or not, I appreciate you taking the time to encourage me. 


Let's get down to business.

I have this cabinet in my dining room. 

You may have seen it before.

A Little Surgery for Me

I've had this post open ready to write for over a week.

Yet, I find that I'm not sure what to say.


Here goes.

Painting a Dresser With General Finishes Chalk Like Paint

It's the third week of January.

Do you know what that means?

Don't guess.

You'll never get it.

It's the week when I get to show you my entry into the January Fab Furniture Flippin Contest.

And, since it's January - the month of fresh starts - A Fresh Start is the theme for this month's contest.

Vintage Lampshades Covered With Burlap


I'm glad you came back.

After the sad sad shade story.

The whole reason that I even thought of that story was because I covered some lampshades during the intense couch sitting that was going on the week after New Years.

It's a hard transition, that week after we get back from our holiday travels.

It's like we just. can't. move.

Recovering A Lampshade - A Story

The real title to this post should be One of the Saddest Days of My Life.

Or, The Day I Shamefully Ugly Cried Over A Lamp.

Or, What It Feels Like When the Birthday Gift You Lovingly Crafted for Your Daughter Gets Stolen. 

For you to understand this post I have to tell you something. This something will create all kinds of questions in your mind. And perhaps judgements. And bad thoughts.

I don't have control over what you think, but I hope that you will trust me. Trust that I'm not a horrible person. Not a horrible parent. I'm putting myself out on a limb here and trusting you to to trust me.

Ok. Here goes.

(approximately) 28 Things


I'm having such a hard time getting re-focused after my little holiday (grandson) break.

I really can't blame it on him. I mean we've been back home since before December 30. 





So I thought I would do a little (approximately) 28 Things to get my gastric juices flowing (I just saw Dr Oz talking about that).

For Christmas this year I bring you my favorite version of Silent Night

And if you want to get a lump in your throat, listen to the rest of the album while you're there.

Or just listen to the story of Alfie, The Christmas Tree,

I promise.

It will make your day.

May love and joy come to you this day and this year.

Thank you for being a friend.
