Hi everyone. It has been one heck of a Monday and I am glad it's almost over! The weekend flew by, as usual, but I was able to get a couple of small projects done. Jenn over at LarsenLoves posted a few days ago about her laundry room redo and I got a lot of good inspiration from her. I went to Wal Mart and puchased a plain gallon glass jar to put my washing powders in. I tied a piece of homespun around it. Here's what it looks like:
It looked o.k. but I thought it needed a little something else. So I pulled out my favorite wall paper border, cut out a star and Mod Podged it on. I like this so much better now:
I purchased several of these plain little picture frames from the Dollar Tree before Christmas:
I decided to prim them up a little bit and put this pic of hubby's Dad with all his children in them and gave them to hubby's brothers and sisters as gifts:
They were a big hit and hubby has been after me ever since to make him one too. I finally got it done. My brothers and sisters-in-law all loved them! Funny how something so simple can sometimes be the best gift you can give.
I was the lucky winner of Tammy ~ A Primitive Place's giveaway! I received my wonderful goodies on Friday but didn't have a spare minute this weekend to post about them and show them off. I received a beautiful cat hooked rug in a frame to hang, a wooden bowl with rag balls, and a cute sconce with a salt box house painted on it along with a nubby candle. Thank you so much Tammy ~ I love everything! I have already marked a spot on one of my living room walls to place everything. Now I just have to find a minute to get it done!
On a final note, please keep my father-in-law in your prayers. He had to be taken to the hospital yesterday because he was short of breath, talking jibberish, and just not acting like his normal self. Once there, they admitted him and they believe he may have pneumonia and has probably suffered a slight stroke, although at last check, all the test results weren't back so not sure really what is going on. The hospital he is in is about a two hour drive away from us and hubby is really concerned since we are expecting more bad weather. He is worried that we won't be able to get to him if we need to. His Dad has not been in the best health this past year and has been in and out of the hospital a lot during this time. So all prayers and good thoughts are greatly appreciated.
Well, I am exhausted, mentally and physcially today, so I am going to sign off for now. Thank goodness this Monday is over!!
Until next time. . .
