Some Snaps

It's been a busy time for me lately and wanted to show you some snaps of what I have been up to......mostly no good, but hey, I try!!!

Put a new cover on my dressing table stool.....

This once belonged to my mom, there were numerous covers on it and I got down to the very bottom and found horsehair stuffing!!!

Next, I put a new cover on my antique oak chair, it will NEVER be painted, it was my nonna's and also had numerous covers on it and also had horsehair stuffing......what a job that one was!!!  Hundreds of nails, staples had not been invented yet............got me a new super easy heavy duty staple gun, hence all the covering, next week.......the dining room chairs get a face lift!!!





More Falling happened....





My new magnetic blinds finally arrived.......what a nice difference they make on the back door....



Picked up this cute red bird cage at HB.....just because!!!



Made pickles......
More Falling.......



Hung this shelf in the kitchen, it used to be in the upstairs hallway where no one could appreciate its beautiful tiger maple, but have not finished accessorizing it.......moved the watermelon theorem above it.

Cleaned out my little pantry and the storage closet........bought a large plastic shelving unit for the garage and I moved the seldom used items out there.......no, you cannot see the garage!!!





So, there you have it......busy, busy, busy.........plus tons of cooking, caring for my sis who had a stroke a few weeks ago and getting ready for a craft show.   Feeling good now that the 90 degree weather has gone.........I so love Autumn and so happy to see Summer end..........sorry, I'll take cool, crisp and colorful any day...........have a great weekend !!!
