First off, before I get to what I couldn't wait to do, I wanted to show you what I found today at a garage sale across the street. I've done so good not going to garage sales because I really have nowhere to put anything. But today as Nan and I left to go to the property a few items across the street caught my eye. I turned around and went back. First I found these really neat shaped serving bowls. $4 for 3 of them. I caved in and got them. I am, after all moving into my new house in a few months. I'll need these to entertain right? But then something else caught my eye...actually it was the something else that initially caught my eye. It was a little desk that I thought would be really cute in the girls' room. So I made a few phone calls, and decided if it was there when I came back I'd get it. No sooner had I driven away I got a text from Kat saying she liked it (I sent her a picture). So I drove around the block and bought it. Isn't it cute. It will fit perfectly in their room, is very solid and they can either stain it or paint it. What do you think? What color paint? What color stain? Or would you leave it?
Now, onto what I couldn't wait to show you......
I had hoped to go up and finish painting the utility/kitchen today, but did some other things instead in order to get ready for our work party tomorrow. One of our youth leaders planned a work party for my hubby's birthday which is Sunday. But I really wanted to show you the first color. It's Gecko from Sherwin Williams and I love it. The other color which will be put on tomorrow is Quilt Gold.
Tomorrow evening we are taking our girls to the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey Circus. We can't wait. I haven't gone in years, and our girls have never gone. But first we must work on the house. Looking out into the hallway.
Door that will go out to the front porch. The siding is almost done. Hubby will be done today so that the guys coming to the work party will caulk. We won't do stone right away, we'll put something else up there temporarily. I love this house. Oh, by the way...see the orange ladder? Nan climbed to the top today. She said "well, I would have climbed higher but it was underneath the ledge and I couldn't get to the top step. I would have climbed on the roof if I could". Oh, boy....she did not get that from me. I won't even climb to the first peak.
Well, there you have it. We're getting there. I'm sure I'll take lots of pictures tomorrow at the work party. I love our young people. They are amazing!
