Makeovers & More

First, let me thank everyone for all your well wishes. I ended up having to go to the Doctor and turns out I had a really nasty sinus and throat infection. I am still not back to normal (whatever that is) but I am feeling much better.

Remember this purchase...
Here it is now...
I got a little can of "greyblueish" paint off the "opps" rack at Lowes and decided that my pie safe needed a face lift.
Before...And now....
A while back Char posted a tutorial on these George and Abe prints.........I finally got around to doing it....I really love them and now Joey wants a set for his office. Thanks Char!

Last weekend we got privacy fence put up across the back of our property and I got it painted this week. I can't wait to get the rest up....I love fences,it is kinda like framing a picture. Saturday we are gonna put doors on the barn and whatever else we can check off the list!

I want to share another great blog with you....a fellow NC girl! Flowergardengirl Look back at her older is full of wonderful historical info and pics about our great state. Her writings are as lovely as her me... pack a lunch,you will be there a while!
Have a Great Friday!!!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
