Rainy Friday!

It's one  of those days when I would LOVE to have a life of leisure where I could just lay in bed with a great cup of coffee, a fabulous book, and no list of things that HAVE to be done yesteday!  But alas, that is not the life I live - and truth be told - this life isn't so bad either!

This week has flown by.  I have worked diligently but haven't seemed to finish any one thing - 3 steps forward, 2 steps back.  Maybe I'm just headed in the wrong direction?!  Anyway, here are some snippets of a few of the projects I'm working on.  Between pumpkin carving with first graders and a side trip to pick up some treasures (thanks Craigslist) for my sister's wedding, I hope to complete something today!  And when I do, I promise to post pics with entire pieces showing!

Have a great day - regardless of what direction you're moving in!

Our mini vacay...

Good Morning!

We are back from our little mini-vacation to Chattanooga, TN and getting ready for our first playoff game for this football season!  The weather is cool and crisp; the perfect Fall day!

The Tennessee Aquarium was fabulous and well worth the visit. It's just enough of a mix of museum and hands on to keep everyone in the family interested.  And my Cowboy thinks he just might live in Chattanooga when he grows up....according to him, it's big city enough without suffocating him!  A man after my own heart!

Have you ever been to Chattanooga?

If you ever get the chance, you should stop in and visit.  It was a great break for us!

And then I came home and got these two treasures to add to the garage!   

Have a great day!

Productive day!

I'm on a roll now!  I finished three more projects yesterday, had my kiddos home with me for Fall Break, and found a soon to be treasure.  Here are the completed projects and I'll post about my new found love in the next few days - I'm going to really try to do better at blogging again! Oh, and I'm taking the next two days off to go on a mini-vacation to enjoy the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga!

Black & crimson....can you guess where we live?


And a beautiful little table painted with Fall  in mind!

Have a great day!  I'll be back soon with an update on our trip to Chattanooga and the piece I found yesterday that I just wait to get my hands on!

Projects a Plenty

I am a terrible blogger!  I love reading everyone's blogs and I count on those that update everyday but, I just can't seem to get in the groove to figure out how they complete projects, have beautiful homes and children, complete fantastic project after project, and stay sane so....for now I am completing projects, making sure everyone in my house has clean clothes, gets to and from school on time, is well fed, and otherwise trying to come up with a plan to make life a little less chaotic!  Hhhmmm....still working on that one!

Here are a few recent projects:

So, there are some other small projects I may not have included but, this gives you idea of some of the things going on around here! 

Maybe one of these days I'll be a better blogger but for today......just know I'm thinking of you all!  Thanks!

I hope you have a great day!
