Hello everyone! Hope everyone has had a good President's Day! I was off work today for a scheduled vacation day so hubby and I spent the day primitive shopping and just being together! It was very nice! I only came home with two things, a framed stitchery and a stuffed goose. They were my Valentine's Day presents along with a cute little bracelet hubby got me. He usually lets me pick out what I want because he says I'm too picky! That's not really true, but hey, it works for me! I get what I really want and he pays ~ can't beat that!
Here is today's makeover. I bought this cutesy plate with stand a while back. I liked the sheep on it, but the bright blue color just doesn't go with anything in my house.
So I decided to paint over it with a sage green color and I used a stencil to put the stars on it. I liked it but it was kind of plain, so I decided to take a paint marker and just freehand the words on it. I like the way it turned out and it matches my kitchen much better this way! I am thinking I will probably put it on top of my refrigerator along with a display of my cookbooks after hubby builds me a little crate to put them in. It's always a work in progress, ya know??
On a sadder note, my heart is heavy today. A woman I went to high school with died of breast cancer yesterday after a long, four year battle. She leaves behind a husband and four little boys, all under the age of twelve. It really puts things in perspective when you hear of something like this happening. She was a prominent member of our small town, and even though I didn't know her on a personal level, I am very saddened by her passing. I am glad that she is not suffering any longer, but the thought of those little boys being without their mother is heart wrenching. It makes you want to tell all the important people in your life just how much they mean to you. Because you just never know.
Well, it's back to work for me tomorrow so I'm off here to get things ready for that. I hope everyone has a great week ahead!
Until next time. . .
