The Itch!

The last week here in Mountain Central Time has been A-MAZING!! The sun has been shining and the temperature as been just right! For me that means.......PROJECTS!! Oh yeah! Friday I hit the thrift store and found a great side table for $5.95, came home revamped it (it used to be a dark dark wood color) and now it has a nice place in my front room!!




Saturday I cleared out an extra bed we had in James' room, went for a bike ride with Jimmy, grocery shopped, and just when I thought the day couldn't get better or more productive I found THIS great idea last night around 7pm and decided it was perfect for the pictures I had been wanting to frame!!!


So that meant......


a trip to here...


here..


of course here....

Here (for their pretzels).....



back to here cause the above didn't have what I wanted......




then so my husband would feel it was worth it (yes he came along), a trip here!!! Ok, so I had some ice cream, sue me!




Then I got home, put it together and here is my version of the idea!! I HEART it!!



(these drawings are from a recent FHE (family home evening), where I had everyone draw a picture of how they feel when we get to sit and eat dinner together!) For more pics and details on how I did it go here

Marylin, you are so creative and crafty, I love it! I don't think I could have handled shopping with you that day though. I'm totally not a shopper, one store is enough for me!!!

What a cute idea on the art hanging! We're a big art family and I love the creative ways to display it. And your table turned out fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by the other day to say hi!
