my week

hubs was in MS for a week, driving coach for Amish young folks who were involved in a rebuilding project in Gulfport. i set up 'shop' in the garage when he's gone and work on my bigger projects.
this week i worked on this ABANDONED CHIFFONIER. the finished product will have to wait till next week - however, here are a few teasers.

i found this child's tea set at the GW...so cute!

back to my week...
the familiar old saying 'when the cat's away, the mice play' is really true for me!

  • i stayed up late
  • slept later in the morning
  • watched a ton of movies
  •  ate what i wanted when i wanted
  •  washed the dishes once
  • did the laundry once
  • the house was a wreck
  • didn't make the bed...after all, just one side was used
what i did do...
  • painted
  • cleaned the drive when it snowed
  • babysat two evenings
  • went to a tupperware fundraiser where i wasn't going to spend any money and did...all of onehundred buck-a-roos!
  • ate lunch with sis-ta R and daughter J
  • packed up christmas decorations (miss the greens!)
the week went quickly and hubs will be home this afternoon!

oh yes...
here is another piece i worked on this week.
LOVE!
(another post!)

...blessedness!

I love your painted/distressed furniture. I can't wait to see all of them.
I was just wondering what movies you watched? We find it so hard to find good wholesome movies, could you give me a few suggestions?
Thanks.
