projects.

well...in case you are wondering i DID get the toy room cleaned up yesterday...first thing...and then continued "cleaning". :)

so many times when i am cleaning i get "inspired", so...i stop cleaning and start
a)painting or
b)re-arranging furniture, etc.
you get the idea,
and then maybe i will finish cleaning, or hey...maybe not? ha.

yesterday, i "found" some things that were in the attic, for a "sunnier" day...and yesterday was the day...i started out with this old chair...


and came up with...this one...what do you think?
i still don't have just the "perfect place" in mind for this, but this will do for now...actually it's already been moved once this morning already. :)

when kaycee was a baby...i think?...my mother-in-law called and told me about this next piece of furniture, free along the road, so...i packed up my babies and went to pick it up. to be quite honest i didn't know what i was going to do with it...turns out is smelled like cat pee, and well...was just sort of a headache. but...yesterday, i saw the light...


now, i love.love.love it! i don't have the right spot going on yet for this either, but check in at the end of the day...i'll find it. :)


and i started on 2 more pieces...not done yet...more to come tomorrow, maybe? i love my life. :)
p.s. thanks for all who were praying for me and my family. {hence the real reason i turned to painting...i could concentrate on praying a lot.}turns out the medical profession has once again left my mother down, and she had to be rescheduled for her cat scan TODAY...so keep praying for us. :)
