Party Time!


Sometime I think setting up for a party is as much or more fun than the party.  Tomorrow is a Wedding Shower for my husbands youngest son, and I am having fun getting ready for it.  It is always controversial when two families combine, so it will be an interesting day.  IMG_7500


Decided to make a fun cake for the party, so am glad that is done and now on to food prep.  

Rockable Bassinet & Matching Rocking Chair Sold with 5 Minutes of posting!


Just finished redoing these. Great rocker and rocking crib. You need to add numbers to crib, but other than that ready to go. Taking to Red Plantation or make an offer. Asking $75 for rocker and $85 for rocking crib. Both redone in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and waxed. 

I am finding that reliving older items takes more time than the money you can ever make from them.  Maybe it is time to look for a full time job once again.  I enjoy the refurbishing, but for the time and effort feel it brings little in return.  Would love others advice on this.  

Getting ready for my granddaughter to visit

I always  always look forward to seeing my beautiful granddaughter Claire.  She is the delight of my life.  We cook together and do art together, go to the beach, go shopping, sit and read books, dance when no one is looking and enjoy the best life can to offer.  I often wish that other people could enjoy the shear joy that children see in the world.  It is so fun to enjoy every minute with this beautiful little wonder that my son was so lucky to bring to the US.
