A Hodge-Podge Blog Post

To start things off, last weekend I tackled the choir of recovering our dining room chairs. We got this dining room table about 6 months ago for on one hundred dollars. What a steal. All it needs is a little bit of TLC. It has six chairs and a leaf to make the table even larger. The family that we got this from has a 2 year old and she left her mark.

Here is the before:
And here is the after:

I even think the gold material makes the wood look even richer and warmer. What do you think? I am very happy with them. Now it's time to entertain!!!

Now to my 'next' project - 'Perging'. I know a lot of you guys hit that in early January but I have been a little bit late in starting. A group of us at church are having a 'huge' yard sale next weekend so I have begun the much dreaded, but at the same time exciting, task of perging the old and making room for better organization and order. My hubby snapped this shot of me sitting in the floor of my scrap space going through all of the 12X12 paper that I've just gotta have when I am in the store, but once I get it home it seems to find it's way to the back of the pile. I must just realize that I do not use a whole lot of pastels and I don't know if I have ever used purple but boy did I have a lot of it. Hopefully no more. I am praying that some 'purple-loving scrapper' will show up next weekend and relieve me of some of my madness. (and that's my sweet little dog Jackson next to me-actually he is our daughter's dog but I get to claim him for now)
Part 3 of this post:
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

This is what it looked like driving up our mountain on our way home from church today. It was crazy, when we left the church it wasn't even snowing yet and we only live approx. 5 minutes from church. But the 'higher' up we went the more snow we encountered. We probably already have 4-5 inches. It's absolutely beautiful.
I took this picture of a tree in our front yard from our front door (not a far distance) but the snow is so heavy that you can barely see the tree.

I pray that you and your family enjoy the rest of your Sunday afternoon. God Bless, Cherri
