Yesterday, I Have

Have you ever heard glass hit glass?

Have you ever heard glass hit glass behind your back?

My new hobby...

I recently picked up refinishing furniture. I love it. I took one class and refinished this desk. I loved doing it and love the outcome. It is hard and time consuming, but I felt so accomplished. I have bought 3 books about refinishing furniture and it is now a must that I have a shop at our home where ever and whenever we settle down. Here are the before, during, and after shots. The before shots aren't great because I forgot to take some good ones but it gives you an idea. The desk is behind the futon.


I am working on my second piece now - a sewing machine table.

Favorite Domestic Things Updated

I just updated my other blog site. I added 12 posts that I have been meaning to add for months and months. If you go to see all the things that have been keeping me somewhat busy, you have to read back until the Vanilla post...I changed the dates on some to keep my own mental organization going. But if you go there please click on the photos to view - the layout puts a pink transparency on everything and the pictures are awful unless you click on them and view them alone. Happy browsing and reading.
