Giveaway Results & Weekend in Review

Miss Boo chose the winner of the adirondack citronella candle holder & it was 
Congrats to Kris. She is a new blogger so please visit her blog for Italian inspired recipes!

I really enjoyed having a giveaway & loved reading everyone's comments! Check back as the next giveaway is going to include something French~inspired. 

Here is a sneak peek at one of my projects. Repainting an old picnic table & benches, currently in the sanding phase (Before Shot):

A messy & dusty affair that is only suitable for outside:

This weekend we had just one soccer game, where Miss Boo got to play goalie. My assistant, Miss A took the camera & had some nice results:

Love her pursed lips & the flying pony tail:

After the soccer game, we visited with some friends & checked on their new twin baby goats. Poor baby goats had their horns removed~ouch! We had to give them some lovin' :

A little hayloft jumping in the barn (fun on a rainy day!) Miss A, Miss S (friend) & Miss Boo :

Mr. F. was trying out his friend's new quad, with his lil buddy Mr. J. :

The hubby & I had a date that included dinner & dancing, but sadly no photos! 

Sunday was a busy day with religion class for the kids, followed by Mass. The afternoon was eagerly anticipated by the kids, as they had their very first piano recital. 

This is what I found at one of our local antique stores last week. They are now clean & de-lableled & waiting for some lilac blooms:

I have been so inspired by blogland & getting my projects completed. Hubby is having a hard time keeping up with me. I am hoping the rain goes away so we can get some painting done & I will share my results with you. Have a blessed week. What are you looking forward to this week?

    ps...& cute kids hon!

  2. Hi! Wow! You guys have been busy. Dinner and dancing....sounds fun! Cute pics of your kids and looking forward to seeing your finished projects.
    We have a piano, but no one to play it. It's so great that your kids all play!

  3. What a great post! You covered everything from A-Z I think. You've been VERY busy. Those little goats are precious and I love the bottles. I've collected a few but they hang out under the kitchen sink until I figure out what to do with them. Lilacs would be very lovely in yours. How do you keep your blooms fresh looking? I've never had much luck with that. They just wilt and shrivel up in a day. It's quite strange to me. lol

  4. Busy but having real fun, it shows!!

    Have a happy day, Cathy, enjoy the sun, hope there will be a lot of sun in your part of the world! xx


I truly LOVE your comments and hope that you will take a second and share your thoughts with me! I will return the favor, too!
