No longer missing in action

Well I know you may have been thinking that I had disappeared but Im still here. I have just been very busy. I have lots to catch up on. For starters I have been TS shopping and yard sale searching. I found a few wooden things that I cant wait to prim up.
I also found this chair wing back chair and Im either going to find a cover for it or attempt to cover it myself. I am thinking burgundy and cream check. What do you think. Oh yeh I paid $10.00 for the chair.

Oh yeh my sister is having a baby girl in May and we went to her baby shower last sunday isnt she beautiful!!

On our way to the shower we came upon a barn not to far from home that was on fire and we could feel the heat from the road these are before and after photos

I have also been busy going to my daughters softball games. It is something that she definatlely loves.
Also I decided it was time to give my family room a facelift. I wish that I had taken before photos but shame on me I forgot but I do have after. The walls were white and the corner cabinets were burgundy. I decided to go with a wall color called dust bunny and then panted the cabinets a off white then sanded the edges to bring the burgundy back through. Last I also did the mantel because I looked funny being brown next the cabinets.

Then there was a shelf that I had hanging up high that was a natural wood color and a little table that I have that I decided would look better if I panted them black and sanded the edges.

I also finished the my fly cover. Thanks Char at Pickeled Pepper Patch and under the fly cover is a pantry cake that I made. I was pretty happy with how this turned out.

I to wanted to let you know that I am doing my first show Sept 19th at Not Forgotten Farm. Lori is having her first annual "Gathering of Primitive Friends" This will be in Nelson County, Virginia. I am very excited and I am sure we will have a great time.
Well I promise not to let it be so long between posts from now on. Take care and have a great week!!!
