Some Projects Started & Some Finished
I gathered some evergreen branches today & wired them together for the outhouse door. Sam & I will have to venture to the woods for some large pine cones to add. Some where I must have a red bow to tie on. I filled the bird feeder for the little birds that have came to eat. They sounded so sweet chirping as they ate. After many photos & not getting the birds in none of them I gave up. They would fly in & go to the back of the feeder to eat & then fly away. Silly little birds.
I got this recipe card holder at a church sale for only 50 cents. I planned on painting it & giving it as a Christmas gift. I had forgot about it but remembered after seeing something on another blog. One of the Tuesday Display Chains. The Peek - A - Boo Tuesday Posts. I hung it to see if it would work & it seemed to be perfect.
Off I went to get the power tools. Eight holes drilled to start & eight lines to cut.
Well two squares opened. One in the back & the other in the bottom. A little sanding done & it was ready to be painted.
All painted & I did remember to distress this piece. Oh I did do some distressing on the sewing machine cabinet to. It looks much better. So the use to be recipe box is now hiding something on my wall.
I can now hide that ugly but much needed thermostat. Thank you for helping me come up with this idea Lori at http://loritheblackcrow.blogspot.com Lori has a wonderful blog where she shares so many beautiful displays.
I will soon be adding these Christmas tart bags to my side bar.
I sewed up a pillow for the little dogs basket. I had this fabric left over from when I recovered the dining room chairs. The fabric had been stashed away for along time. I figured I should use it up. The little dog has been sound asleep since jumping into his basket. He must like the pillow.
In less than a hour after I planted grass seed & put straw down over the old pond area the big dog decided to make his bed in the straw & sun himself. He was happy & that was fine. Before he left he dug a hole. That was not so fine. Hubby had a little job to fix after he took the dog back to the barn. So now we wait to see if the grass will grow.
Blessings Til Next Time!
