Love Affair with a Drop-leaf Table

I am now the proud owner of an old drop-leaf table.  I had been eyeing that baby for a couple weeks and finally it was marked down.  I have no idea yet where I am going to put it- but I am so excited it is mine.  Don't know why- but hey its the little things that make me happy.  I don't have a picture of it- I know whats wrong with me...  But I will take one and post it when I get it home.  Yea, that's another problem.  I have to ask someone (with a truck) to help me get it home.

I purchased it at the Ragpicker- which by the way has a great moving sale going on.  I really hate they are moving - but the place they are going to is a really cute house on South Main Street Gwd.  It will be a fun Sat morning adventure spot.

Until later........

An update on My Mom's projects!

Spent some time with Mom on Friday.  Did not get into any major "projects".  She had my Brother and my nephew building a deck and I didn't want to have too much going on.  Besides I was just not that into painting and such.  She was able to get an issue taken care of in the little bathroom beside her new "office" so I will be working on that next.  I promise I will post pictures.  I will get some pictures of the Deck she had done as well.  Her little place needed lots and lots of work.... but we are plugging away at it one task at a time.

I have a few projects of my own that I hope to take care in the near future.  I recently purchased some material at our local Hancock fabric store.  I want to spruce up my backporch/laundry room and my kitchen.  I have recently discovered I love shopping and looking at places like the Ragpicker.  I have purchased quite a few items that I want to use in my kitchen.  I also need to organize my cabinets and create some storage.  Caitlin informed me that I did not need to buy anything else until I used all my stuff that I have bought.  I don't think she understands that I have a plan and there is a reason for my collection of goodies.

Let me go get busy with my projects.... until next time.......

Mom's room almost complete!

Mom's room is almost complete.  I took a few hours Saturday with the help of Caitlin to complete some of the finishes.  I completed the molding around the floor and fixed the window ac unit opening.  We also changed out the light fixture, good thing Caitlin is tall.  I have never installed a light fixture, but I found it quite easy.  ( sorry forgot to take a light picture- I will next time)  We had purchased a simple book shelf to hold some of mom's favorite books.  We also placed a few of the pictures in the room.  I have some other ideas and personal touches I want to add to the room- but my main goal was to finish the painting and finish work.  The pretty touches can come later.  Mom also needs to find a comfortable chair.

Here are a few pictures!
I hung this picture even though I did not have everything I wanted to go on this wall.  I have some family photos that I plan to hang around it. ( Sorry for the glare on the picture)
I loved this picture- Mom may have not picked it but she let me  be the one to choose the pictures.
Hope, believe, love, laugh

I plan to use the W on the shelf and the little dog planter somewhere in the  room.
