Two days late... What am I working on Wednesday... oops I mean Friday :)

I will post a Fat Friday later today!!!
I have been a really busy beaver... lol.
I have found a top to an armour along the streets of Burlington. I plan on using it in my den... to hide the computer and printer!!! And other stuff that everyone doesn't need to see upon entry into the den!! I will show you both the before and after pics when done... along with what the top part looks like!

Second... I finished the signs for my autumn... holloween decor. And I would like to say a kind thank you to mysteryhistorymom for her idea on what to do with the other frame... I love it!!
I also included a spider on top of it to bring home the point... ;-)

So cute... grands just love the spiders!!!
And third... I decided to follow some of the prim blogs that I have been reading... and LOVING by the way!!! So in order to copy... well to imitate... them I have spent some time painting on the last few rainy days we have had here... I went to Wal-Mart got some paint... Umbrella Black... to be exact. But... it isn't quite as black as I thought it would be... kinda has a real blue tint to it. It is sorta growing on me thou. Scoti and my mother both like it alot... so I taking their lead... and going to live with it for a few!! Time will tell. I painted my pie safe... and another cabinet that once was a bookshelf. ( Did this a long time ago... needed extra storage in my kitchen... but it needed to be skinny... I enclosed a bookshelf in 1x10's and put on doors... and some trim to cover it all up!!! and whalla!!!) And since then... I put it up on top of another book shelf... for ALL of by cookbooks and now I have the best of both worlds... storage... and extra room in a small kitchen!!

my pie safe... and the two bookshelves
I have been debating on whether or not to paint a pie on my pie safe... or to just leave it as is...
Daughter thinks it looks better as is... I would like to paint the pie... because it will tell all where to find all of my baking supplies!!! Is that silly????
Now I am trying to decide on whether or not to paint the kitchen... cabinets... or what all!! The yellow and black... just don't look right... but I am sad to cover up all of my vines and flowers...
So I will show you some pics of the kitchen later... for a vote on WHAT TO DO????

And then another of my projects were to recover my rocking chair... it was orginally covered in an orange material... that I covered about two years ago in a toile pattern in blue... well I am over the blue color in the livingroom... so I had found some red denim at the "God's Store" in Burlington... and gave them a donation for it ($5.00) and brought it home... and recovered my chair. I love it!!!

to get it to look red... I had to turn the flash off...
otherwise it came out a real fushia color!!!
So please forgive the yellow hue!!

I am almost ready to show you some pics of my Christmas Stocking Swap finished!!! I have to wait until Monday I think to send it!!! Sue... I am soooooooo excited!!! I can't wait for you to get it!!! There is something in there too for Amy!!! It will be on top!! I have had soooooo much fun doing all of this!! And thank you too for some ideas for Christmas presents around here too! ;-)
(I promise they will be different from yours... so yours will be one of a kind ones!!) I will post the pics before I send it, so you will know about when to expect it!!! Hope all is well with you and yours dear!!
I suppose I should close for now... and post more later!!!

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!
Remember to Live well, Laugh often,
and to LOVE much!!

Can't wait to vote on your kitchen. Show us more pictures!

The red chair is good (but I would have loved it ORANGE, too)! And I love your black. You shoot,you score, as Mindy says.
