This Week

I think that this week promises to be a busy one and as I look at the weather it looks to be nice so that will help! I would like to get down to the gardening center and pick up some plants for the front of the house and work on getting the porch cleaned and organized for summer relaxing and Mom's visit ( its the summer guest room) . .. Finish the couch that I'm working on for the living room pick a chair to redo for the living room and possibly a new table for the dinning room, get mothers day gifts finished and shipped! oh ya and get some things listed on eBay hence the picture of the purse!! new pattern for summer. I'm finding it hard to concentrate on work when I am wanting to get my house freshened up for summer. oh well we will see how far I get!

Something "new" for the house

Well here it is and yes I know that I doesn't look "new" but hopefully it will when I'm done with it! This is a couch that I found at a garage sale a couple of weeks ago for 20.00 and it's a sleeper sofa to boot! this is one of the projects that I had on my to do list for this spring. I sold my last living room sofa and chair set at my fall garage sale " cause it was old and very uncomfortable and have been using the sofa that goes in the porch throughout the winter, well it's almost time to get the porch in order so I was in need of a sofa for the lining room. I love the shape of this one so I will be slip covering it and Viola " new" living room furniture I hope to have it finished this week!

Ballet Dude

Well here he is... This is my Son Shayne's new passion, Ballet! He Just started lessons this year and is loving it and is one of the most graceful dancers I've seen. OK maybe I'm a little prejudice but for his first year of dance he really shines. You can just tell when he is dancing that he really loves it.

Competition was a bit disappointing for him this year as they did not win any big metals but I think the judges were into more of the jazz and tap numbers and they were really fun to watch I have to say. I think Shayne's group was the only ballet number. I asked him if he would consider doing a jazz or tap number for the next competition and his reply was NO WAY! I'm doing ballet again! OK OK, sorry I even mentioned it.
