A Hutch Turned Upside Down

Hello!

Is it me you're looking for?

That's a song.

It's the first thing that crossed my mind after I typed Hello!

I couldn't resist writing it down.

Back to business . . .

Even more glad than usual!

Want to know why?

It's the third weekend of  April and this means that, once again, I have a project to show you for the Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest - April edition.

I have to say that I'm more excited about this months contest than ever. 

I know you're thinking WHY, WHY, WHY???????

It's because April's sponsor is so GREAT!!!

Accents & Colloquialisms - Real or Wrong??

Hello! I've been missing you!


I was born in Arkansas and lived there until was 11(?).

Then I lived in Oklahoma for 31 years, followed by 6 years in Kansas City, and now 10 years in Michigan.

When I'm having a lot of fun, talking really fast, or I am really mad, you can tell I'm from somewhere south of the Mason Dixon Line.

At least I think the Mason Dixon Line.

I don't actually know where the Mason Dixon Line is.

One thing I know from living in the south and southwest during my tender years, is that people of the south and southwest have accents. 

But not all the same accent.

New Pillows For My Back Porch - March Fab Furniture Flippin Contest!

Hello! 

Happy Good Friday.

It's the third Friday of the month and that means I'm sharing my March Fab Furniture Flippin project.

This month's sponsor is Fairfield.



Fairfield is one of those companies that might not ring a bell at first, but once you look at their website you realize that you've been using their products for years and years. If you have ever bought batting, foam, pillow forms, interfacing, fillers (like Polyfil) you have probably used their products.

A Silver Leaf Frame With Chalkboard

Hey there!

How the heck are you?


I'm good.

Walking with a cane is wonderful when you've been stuck behind a walker for 4 weeks. I'm starting to get a hint of what it's going to be like when I'm all healed up.

It's going to be grand.

One of the little projects I worked on during my recovery was this silver leaf frame that I made, oh, say 18 months ago???

I always intended to make it a chalk board, but as usual, I got almost finished but not quite finished.

Because I wasn't certain where I would actually hang it, I hung it from the curtain rod to hang in the window.




I usually don't have the curtains closed so it just hung in front of the window.

Making A Fancy Purple Velvet Chair

The title of this post should actually be, The Purple Chair That I Painted and Reupholstered One Week After Hip-replacement Surgery and Why I Didn't Meet My Deadline For The February Fab Furniture Flippin Contest, with a subtitle of Perhaps I Should Have Completed This BEFORE I Went To The Hospital.

28 Things - Random things about a hip replacement.

Sounds exciting, huh?

Sorry I've been so non-communicative.

1. I am fine.

2.  Recuperating is a full-time job.

3. I spend a good amount of time therapizing, walking from room to room, going to the bathroom, and icing my hip, leg and butt.

4. I'm not sure the reason, but my attention span is as short as my memory so it's hard to remember to do things.
