One thing about being "sickie" in the house for the past week is that I get to catch up on some blog reading. The Lettered Cottage has some great links to some new found blogs. Folks are really creative with their "redos."

Happy New Year!


Oh Christmas Tree

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoyed time with family and friends over the last couple of days. I ate way too much, but loved every get together. Here is a single photo of my very favorite Christmas ornament. It reminds me of the coming New Year. Our extended family has two new babies on the way this year and we are all so very excited.

Best to you all. God Bless.


Would you paint this???

This hope chest ended up on the CL "make me some money" list, but tonight I got to thinking that this could make a nice entryway bench. I don't have a mudroom, foyer, hall or anything like that, but I moved this to the kitchen, under a window by the garage door. It fits and may be a great place to take on/off shoes and be great storage. Problem= hate the country stencil. So I am debating if I still keep this on CL or bust out some paint.
