Every had a birthday that just kept on giving – I said that in my last post and thought it had ended…NOT!
On Wednesday Doug’s cousins came over and surprised me with a birthday afternoon. They brought snacks and we played cards then went downtown to Fred’s for burgers then back here for apple pie and ice cream…Perfect Day. Oh and a wonderful gift card for Kohl’s (guess what…it’s already spent. smiles-smiles-smiles!)
This group of gals are so fun and funny – never stop laughing when we are with them.
Before everyone left I set the camera on automatic and set it on the top of one of the pie safes to get a group photo…well they thought I had it pointing at an angle so Gail said ‘tilt to the right’ and they all did LOL…
Last week we finished up our little re-do of rooms…this time it was the bathroom that got it. Not much but enough to look good.
Painted the cabinets, new hardware and new floor.
And the new look…
now it looks like the color is the same but believe me it’s much darker than the original color. We used the same as in the family room. I like to keep the colors flowing in the house – not be drastic with changes.
One more small addition to one of the guest rooms – we put up a wall shelf with pegs to put the antique baby clothing on. It’s one we had and thought it might work and sure enough…I really like it. Now that is all we are putting on the walls. I want it simple.
See this adorable child’s dish set…we bought that when Doug was working in England. I was fortunate enough to go over there for a week while he was there. We took a shopping trip one day and went to Harrods of London. I knew Peter Rabbit was an English story and so I was in search of something pertaining to it. We found this Wedgwood set for little Jesse (at the time he wasn’t born yet).
This weekend was the town wide rummage sale so we went out browsing and found a few treasures we just had to have lol
But really I DID HAVE TO HAVE THIS…2 boxes of DMC all numbered and in order in plastic bags…the boxes are floss organizers. Got the two boxes for $8.00. I counted the bags and there are 285 – most bags have one skein but there are about 5 or 6 have several skeins.
Yesterday (Saturday) we went to my cousins 80th birthday party.
Got to enjoy seeing cousins I haven’t seen in a year and some even more.
My cousin Barb, Me and cousin Dave (they are brother and sister)
Me with cousin Bev (another sister to the two above and the birthday girl)
That’s it for the fun things!!!
Been making a few things here and there to get ready for the Christmas show.
Trying to make some small things before I get working on Penny Rugs.
Large flower pins for coats
