Poor Abby.....

Google Friend Connect is going away... Be Sure to UPDATE or Sign up to my RSS Feed LinkClose
Look at what happens to my poor little Abby when she goes out in the snow.

She ends up wearing it!
She's a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and has very soft feathery fur.
Leaves, branches, dirt, and yes
get tangled and stuck to the feathery fur on her legs and it is
nearly impossible to get out.

See, here I just told her "Staaaaaay, I have to get my little cup of warm water to dip your paws into, to melt the snow" then I dry her off and she lays by the fire to get nice and warm again.

It's a snow day and probably a snow WEEK for the kids since we are supposed to be hit with a snowstorm tonight and into tomorrow in western Washington.

The kids have been out sledding all day. Here, my daughter was so kind as to help relieve the weight of the snow off the branches of my Japanese Maple.
Oops, good thing she had on her hood!

A little snow fort just for Abby!

I think she'd rather be by the fire:)

Hope everyone stays warm and dry!

Before & After

♥Side Table Before & After♥

Before and Afters are one of my favorite things to look at on blogs. I love seeing how things can be transformed from drabulous to fabulous:)

My daughter wanted a bedside table and had found some that she really liked at Pottery Barn. While very pretty, they are also very expensive!

me: Well, dear daughter, this is the perfect excuse to hit some thrift stores and see what we can find!!

11 yr. old daughter: Noooooo!!!!! (moans, moans, and more moans)

Lets just say she hasn't been bit by the "thrifting" bug and I don't see it happening anytime soon:)

Oh well, off we went moans and all and ended up finding this table for $9.99.


Gorgeous right?! Well, I saw the potential!

 I'm sure daughter agreed with me just so we could get out of the store and be done with it!

The finish on the table was peeling badly,

and there was some water stains on top.
But, overall a good piece, with beautiful lines.

This was also my first time using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I did have to scrape off all the old yellow varnish that was peeling, but other than that, no other prep was needed with ASCP.


I did two coats of chalk paint in Old White and finished with her clear wax.

I just lightly brushed over the handles with the same paint.

Love the curvy lines.

*Btw, the picture on the table was another thrift find that I will post about another day.

Daughter ♥'s her table!

Have a great day,

Surprise! Surprise!

I was so surprised to receive the Winter 2012 edition of Prims magazine by Stampington and Co. in the mail saying that I had been published.

I had sent in some submissions just a few weeks back, but I knew those would not make it for this latest issue.

So I flipped through the magazine
which is so dang cute.....

and found little miss here inside.

This piece is called "Oh Easter Tree".
This is one of my first pieces that I ever made.

She was originally published in Prims magazine Spring 2011 issue.

Oh, what an exciting day that was!!

Since this latest issue is Spring related, I guess they pulled her out of their archives and featured her again.

Well, thank you Prims!
I am a HUGE fan of all their magazines, I could look at their beautiful pictures all day!

On another note:

I am working on a lot of projects around my house. Were updating bathrooms, I've painted a couple pieces of furniture, I've been thrifting a LOT lately.

So I will have much to show you soon!

Happy 2012
