As I said on FB yesterday,
I love living in the boonies,
but I HATE unreliable Internet and horrible cell service.
I have been unable to blog or download pictures of this weeks projects
because the wind was blowing,
it was rainy ,
plus there was lightening....
It's back up and running ( for now )
so if you're interested ,
I'll show you a little of what I've been up to this week .
We put a bigger window in the part of the shed I use for my sales.
First we had to cut the tin .
Then the wood.
My new window !
Team work .
A bit of swearing ....
but it's in and that's all that matters.
We also purchased a wood burning stove off Craig's List to help heat the shed.
I'm pretty excited about that too.
It was actually our first Craig's List purchase.
Can you believe that ?
Well, it was.
Wednesday is Addie day.
Her Mommy forgot her bag for work ,
so we met her half way at a little park.
It was really warm yet ,
but gray and drizzly.
Addie had a great time.
She never likes to leave the "play park".
after " two more minutes "
about a dozen times .
Grandma bribed her with tootsie rolls.
And we left.
A grandma's got to do what a grandma's got to do ...
I did get a few projects made this week in between rain showers.
But , of course,
did not get pictures of most of them ....
I had made the cutest little foot stool with left over fabric from Sis's dining room chairs
( which I don't think I've shared yet either )
Addie just loved it and thought she needed one for her room .
I had this old one just sitting in the shed.
Time for a little make over.
I unscrewed the legs to paint them.
I have found it works really well to push them into a cardboard box.
She wanted blue fabric with kittys on it .
Where does she come up with this stuff ?
I found some really cute fabric that matched her room with a cupcake pattern.
You all know we LOVE cupcakes in this family ....
Not the best picture ,
but you know me ...
I also repurposed a chair for Sis for her new craft room .
Yep , you guessed it .
I made some wine bottle crafts
( from Pinterest )
for the next sale.
I've been working on some benches from beds...
I promise to try to post some of those pics next week.
Maybe I accomplished more that I thought.
It was just so gray and dreary here in the Trailerhood ,
that I just felt cross.
Which is my new favorite word.
I'm watching way too much Thomas the Tank Engine lately.
But cross is a much nicer word than I usually use :)
One last picture for the week.
I made this tutu for Addie"s first birthday.
She HATED it !
Now (two years later ) she loves it ....
Hope you all had a great productive week !
Sis and I are hitting a few local craft shows tomorrow
and stopping by one of my favorite antique stores.
I'll talk to you next week !
With more pictures .
