~ Time to Start Sewing ~

Really like this apron from A Beautiful Mess.  I will add it to my sewing list...

~ Love These Woodsy Buildings ~

Do you like the roundness of these buildings?  I do...

~ Little Cottage ~

Just dreaming of spring...which will be here sooner than I realize.

~ Merry Christmas ~

~ How About a Sunny Vacation ~

I'm ready for sunny warm days!

~ Really Shabby Lampshade ~

Finally finished this lampshade...it has been off the lamp waiting for some attention for months.  My Mom and Dad gave me this lamp when they moved.  I stripped off the original shade cover leaving the fabric wrap on the wire part of the shade frame.  I tore 3" wide strips from thin white linen and tied them around the frame.  How easy is that!  It is so nice to have two weeks off and getting a few projects completed.   

~ Old Wooden Infant Bathtub ~

Found this wooden infant bathtub at a neighbor's estate sale.  This belonged to her grandmother and had been in storage for years.  I filled it today with glass oil bottles, blue canning jars, silver pieces, Staffordshire and threw in a few pine cones.

~ The Antlers are Multiplying ~

Help me...the antlers are multiplying as fast as rabbits. LOL  My friend Jan suggested I group the antlers on one wall instead of having them all over the house.  What a good idea...now they will attack people as their eating.

~ My New Craft Room ~




I love my newly decorated and organized craft room.  Now I will have one room for sewing, painting furniture, stain glass and upholstering.  Feather Weight sewing machine is on the table and ready to get some serious sewing projects underway.

~ Cute Vintage Telephone Seat ~

I love this vintage telephone seat.  Maybe I should keep it.  You can see the before picture at http://karla-at-home.blogspot.com/p/about.html or further down in this post.

~ Estate Sale Find ~

Found these Christmas ornaments at an estate sale...all for $5.00. I dropped at least five of them and they didn't break. The ornament fairy must be watching over me.

~ Fitz and Floyd ~

My favorite Christmas decoration..a.Fitz and Floyd cookie jar.  A gift from a sorority sister around 1975.

~ A Big Thanks ~

To Katrina Chambers at http://www.iammediamad.com/ for the wonderful job she did on creating my new blog design.  I would highly recommend her for any of you looking for a look of your own...thanks Katrina :)

~ Finished Marble Night Stand ~

Another painting project done...only one hundred more to go...LOL.  I love to paint...I need to buy a paint store.

~ Students Design Christmas Ornament ~

My Ready, Set, Teach! students design and make Christmas ornaments for their field-site teachers.  Didn't they do a great job?

~ theatre seating made shabby ~

 My buddy Bill reconstructed the theatre seats for me several years ago.  Bill was a retired agriculture teacher and had a wood shop in downtown Anna.  He has since passed on.  He was a good guy and a great family man and teacher.  Finally decided to paint the oak seats.  Is it written somewhere not to paint oak...I feel so guilty...LOL.

Three new projects

Little bedside table with vintage marble top.  Primed and ready for some shabby paint.
My daughter insisted I buy this vintage telephone chair for $10.00 at Round Top.  Now to take the cushion off the frame and give it some character.
I've had this table forever.  I took the top tier off and shelled it to be used as a lamp base.  This piece will be primed and painted.

Am I the only one having problems with writings appearing after the pic?  Any suggestions?

Flow Blue Find

What a great find at an estate sale....paid very little mula for it!!!
