September Summary

I can relate to the poor cat chasing his tail.  I feel like that's all I do anymore ~ 'round-n-'round we go!

September arrived quickly and now it's almost time to say goodbye.  A quick month for sure.

I guess that's what happens when you get busy.

Busy finishing up projects purchased in the spring:

This is the heinous coffee table (bottom) I purchased at a flea market for three bucks . . .
 I think I over paid.  It was rickety and glue laden.
Not to mention, filthy.
The boy taking it apart and bracing it up.
It needed to have the glue scraped off, a couple bolts and
the drawer re-glued.
Top sanded and polyed.
Bottom primed.
Like my workshop?
First coat of paint.
Really liked the color but it was just a little
too "beachy blue" for our living room.
Second coat - in a pale green. 
Um . . . . no.
Not quite.
The same green with a dark glaze, polyed and
waiting for knobs.
Tricky, tricky ~finding just the right accessories.
Then we have this:
Itty Bitty and pre-school at Mom-mom's house.
Of course there was the bazillion birthdays and all the every day stuff that happens in life.  There is quite a bit of truth to the notion that the older one gets the faster life gets.  No pause.  No rewind.  And thank goodness, no fast forward! 
Toodles for now!

  1. I love this post and I love your coffee table! I think you need to do a post where you take all sorts of pictures of the nooks and crannies of your home that you love, because your house is so pretty and I want to see all your loveliness!
