This, That and the Other.

Around here there always seems a lot of the OTHER!
Between my horrid cold, gone but allergy crap moving in and other ills I did get some of the painting done!;-)
We have had internet issues so have not been able to blog or blog visit too much.

Here are two old style frames I painted black.
I want a couple of old looking samplers for these.

A shelf for one in my kitchen that has wrapped.
Painted it black also .
I sand edges as well to give that worn look I love.

These are candle holders I broke the glass hurricanes so will have to get a couple more.
All these plus a few more projects are for the living, dining rooms and kitchen.

This one I painted to match my sewing room cabinets.
Was my Mama's.
It is to be mounted on wall. There is a drawer, still have to put on the handle.
I have an old dresser, Mama's as well, yet to sand and paint.
This will hang over it .
Will hang a quilt on it for display.

This was an old spice rack I picked up for less than a buck.
It got the creamy white paint treatment too.

Works great for small stuff in jars and strips hanging on the dowel.
Not sure if it will remain here but for now it will.
I am still tweaking my sewing room set up.
Had to clean it up so I can cut and sew on new projects.
Had a mess yet again!
Will share some of it in another post.
Blogger may not let all these pics load as it is!
I did get a tiny bit of sewing done but more on my list to do.
If only I could just sit and sew or blog or well whatever my fancy was instead of all the OTHER stuff that HAS to be done in a days time!!
DH did get the small garden plot cleaned out and tilled also his small raised veggie bed.
He planted some seeds in peat pots to hopefully have some plant starts in time for setting out after our last frost date.
He cleaned out a couple flower beds as well.
So I reckon you could say we are in Spring mode here for sure!
Well until the next cold snap!;-)


  1. Sounds like Spring is on its way for you! Gardens here are still covered in snow... but I was 3 hours south of here on Friday and there was NO snow, so we might soon get some spring too.

    Hope you're feeling 100% soon! It's no fun being under the weather.

  2. you've been very all your projects..

  3. I love little shelves...and especially if they have a dowel on which to hang tiny quilts (or strips when making quilts). Feel better soon!

  4. Love what you have been doing!!! Tweek away!

  5. You've been a busy lady. Love your projects.

  6. Well it looks like you got a lot done. Your projects turned out great!

  7. I love all of your projects! It's great to spruce things up!
