Sunday vs. Monday


The high on Sunday was a balmy 68 degrees.  I had short sleeves on and spent some time turning the dirt over in my garden beds.

This was yesterday morning! The high was in the 20’s!  And last night we got even more snow – 5″!  The temps this morning were 2 degrees!! Baby it’s cold outside! LOL

1st Big 2018 Project


Waiting for some warmer temps . . . but I’m ready to replace the carpet in my bedroom with my new flooring.  Then the snowball affect begins . . . move all the furniture out, remove carpet – pad – staples, lay down floor, put up trim boards, make and hang barn door into Mistress Bath, hang and paint beadboard in Mistress Bath entry . . . gives me a headache just listing all those things! LOL

Another Pig?


Seriously, LOL, I don’t collect pigs!  But when I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday I came across this candle holder – helloooooo too stickin’ cute!  It just happened to be a pig – I wasn’t looking for a pig – butttt it was only $10! LOL

Backdrop Wall



I bought these ClosestMaid ShelfTrack 40″ wire shelving brackets (2) and anchored them into the studs on the wall (each was about $9).  I wanted to be able to adjust the support brackets at any height.  The support brackets came 2 in a pack and were about $7.

Sometimes I use fabric for backdrops and they’re not always the same length.  I also bought 1 1/2″ PVC pipe and used packing tape to attach this Valentine backdrop. I can store them like this or stand them up in the corner.  I love having options, lol.  I purchased all these products at Home Depot (except the backdrop).


Vintage . . . . .


Anyone else have one of these jewels?  I’m originally from Napa, California and there is a little bakery in Napa called “Buttercream Bakery” and it’s still there.  When I was much younger we’d sometimes get birthday cakes with a little porcelain figure on them that represented the month of our birthday.  I came across this while I was cleaning out the “new studio” “old catch-all room”.  Mom, do you remember these?  This is the only one I have left.  It’s kinda sad that something I own as a little girl could now be called Vintage! LOL
