OK, when God decides to get your attention, He really knows how to get your attention. He did 9 years ago, when I went threw surviving colon cancer. But this was new. Last Monday seemed like it was going to be a typical Monday, but God had other plans. I wasn't feeling right when I got up, but thought, I'll just work threw it, no big deal. Well to make a long story short, I was in the ER by 11am and admitted into the hospital by 5 that evening, with what they thought may have been a small stoke. Yep, me, 47, having a stroke. Scary huh? Well, by Thursday morning and a whole lot of tests later, they decided it was a rare type or migraine. Not a stroke, and I was able to take a deep breath again and go home. So all I could think of was, OK God, you got my attention, what do you want me to learn from this.
That's, the thought of the week. What is God teaching you this week? Does He have your attention? Don't wait till a hospital stay to listen to what He has to say.

Look what I found in an old barn! It really solid, no loose rungs or legs. But as you can see, the seat is shot. Cleaning, sanding, and a good coat of paint......white of course, will be a great start. The problem is, what to do with the seat.

I'm just loving the fact that's it's rainy and I'm home today, with painting projects. Michelle is still not feeling 100%, so she is home with me too. It just feels like one of those days you just want to nest. I know you ladies will know what I mean. I plan on getting lots done, I sure hope I don't let myself down. Talk to y'all later.

You know how it is when the creative mood hits you. You just have to go with it. Well at least I do. I'll find myself getting up at midnight and painting something. I started a little earlier then that tonight, but I'm not done yet. I just took a break to let you in. I love sharing with you.
This little piece is going to be hard to part with, but part with it I will. I'll finish it tomorrow and put it in the shop. I found this little treasure in a thrift store over a year ago, but stuck it in a corner till tonight.
I'll finish it off with a glaze and maybe even tie a ribbon on one side. If can find the right one. Stick a few Country Living magazines in it a show if off. I'll post finished pics tomorrow.
I'm not sure yet how I'll finish this little corner shelf, but it does need more. I guess I'll sleep on this one.
This is a little tease of the dresser I was telling you about earlier. The same color and finish that I did on a clients fireplace.
Our newest edition to our herd. Our only buck, a blue eyed pygmy named Lightening. He should throw some pretty babies.
Our little molel, Michelle. We went shopping Saturday at Justice, with her gift card she received for her birthday from my sister Darlene. She had to have new pictures to show off her new duds. She is growing up so fast, we don't know what to do. She is really a good little girl.
Well we worked in the yard, planted a little and mowed. We had a friend over for dinner and it was a nice time had by all. You just can't go wrong with a family Saturday.
The weekend started on Friday for me, with a fireplace makeover. It was a nice white fireplace, but it just didn't go with the clients new built-ins. So I was off to do my thing. First I removed the embellishments and sanded it down. Gave it a fresh color and did a glaze and there ya are.... The clients loved it and it made my Friday. The top pic has my hubby in it. He installed the new built-ins. I loved this color so much, I refinished a dresser I was given with the left over paint and glaze. I'll post pics of the dresser later. I still have to finish the drawers.
