I'm a silly person and love a good chuckle! I believe I am a bit on the ditsy side but who's keeping score?! ha On a more serious note: I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul! And my husband and children (family) are the most important things in my life! Hope I can be a blessing to those of you willing to torture yourselves and read this blog! LOL

Silly blogspot has issues with comments. If you can't comment on my blog don't worry "YOU're not alone"!!! haha It's nothing personal or not that I know of. Because I can't comment either! BUT... If you choose the option: "Name/URL" and enter your name and if you have a website or blog you "can" but don't have to enter it. THEN you CAN comment. This is a just so you know. I don't wanting anyone going away without sharing their thoughts! Or thinking that we have something against them! We LOVE you! :)

Furniture Makeover!

Look at this pretty little thing!  I kind of wondered how old it is.  It doesn't
appear to be very old but I've never seen anything like it before.

I decided to look for a piece at the local thrift shop.  Found this and
actually left the store without it.  But after some longing to find the piece I
so badly wanted I went back and got it.

It will go under the window in my daughters room.  I plan to make a seat for the top.
She was with me when I found it and I could tell she just didn't
have the vision I have for seeing what it could be. haha

I thought I'd share.  I love to take something not so pretty and make something wonderful
from it.

It is a child's chest.  I loved the chess/checkers game top.

I had started to sand it already when I decided to take some photos.

Caitlin's room has Teal, Black and White in it.  She was very particular
when she chose the colors.  So I decided this would look great
black with a nice white/teal seat.  I plan to buy some fabric and foam to make the seat with.

I think Caitlin was shocked when she saw it.  She wasn't impressed when I bought it.
haha  I will share more pics when I get the materials for the seat.

I can't wait!


  1. Ooh, that is looking good! I can't wait to see it finished and you are giving Caitlin some good training. :-)

  2. ThankS Kelly! I love creating things! ha I know you do too! It's fun to pass that love on to your children. She is very creative as well!

  3. I love it! I share your passion for searching and creating. I can walk through a thrift store, craft store for hours and just gather ideas from what is around me and how I can use them. I love to create my kiddos birthday cakes this way. Let me just go look and see what I can come up with! Caitlyn will love having the seat/chest! It will be something she can pass on and have a wonderful tale to pass on with it!
