Hi! Yep, I'm still here among the living! I swear, I don't know where time goes anymore. Seems like I am constantly rushing around, but never seem to accomplish everything I want to accomplish!
Remember this milk can that my friend gave me? I posted about it a while back.
Here's what it looks like now:
I painted it black and then added some left over wall paper border I had laying around after my bathroom makeover. I love how it turned out!
Hubby has been hard at work making some more of the outhouse toilet paper holders. My Mom requested one but she didn't want hers painted, only stained. It turned out really nice:
I have been "junk hunting" over the past couple of weekends. Although I haven't had much luck, I did stumble across a couple of good finds. While out in Arkansas a couple of weekends ago, hubby and I went into a thrift store where I found a set of wooden bowls, six of 'em for only $5! I am using one of them to hold some yummy smelling tarts I got from Kitty at Shabby Kat's Primitive Sundries and Such through a swap we did over at Prim Pals Forum. I plan on painting and distressing the others.
Last weekend, hubby and I went to a couple of local flea markets where I found this wooden pineapple bowl for $1.25. I am going to try to do a paint treatment on it as well. We will see how it turns out!
Hubby and I are really enjoying our "alone" time since the kid is out in Arkansas/Oklahoma visiting my Mom and brothers. He will be home at the end of July so I am enjoying the peace and quiet while I have it!! We are planning a romantic weekend getaway for this weekend to the Great Smoky Mountains. I am excited about that as that is where we were married and it's one of my most favorite places to visit!
Well, that's gonna do it for me today. I've got a laundry basket full of clean clothes to fold calling my name. I hope everyone has a great rest of the week!
Until next time. . .
