Things are slowly coming together around here. Yes, I still have a long list of things to do and a nice little honey do list as well. I was thrilled to find a new worktable for my studio from a local guy....It belonged to his parents for as long as he could remember growing up...I am now the second owner to this lovely table. Can't wait to get projects done...I still have a lot to put away in my studio...Finally finding the boxes and will get them unpacked...Hope to be up and running soon...
not sure exactly when....but soon.

I also have things in the kitchen to do...Eventually finish off taking down the wallpaper, painting a part of my breakfast dining table that needs to be redone, recovering a couple of the chairs and painting the only blue chair white. We also need to hang my chippy kitschy shelf and put up a different light in the kitchen. This momma cannot cook or create in the kitchen with the bad lighting that is currently in there...Uggghhhh it's too dark! Slowly but surely our new home will be put away and in order! Wish I had a magic button to push and it would all be done!

Summer Is Coming To An End

The Summer season is just about over. It sure did fly bay fast and hard to believe that we are actually going to be moving forward into cooler weather...Which in so many ways is nice! I will miss all the pretty Spring/Summer flowers yet there are many Autumn flowers that I appreciate as well. But soon it will all wither away and it will be Winter before you know it.

A week has already passed since our son was here for a visit. I captured these photos of my kids together right before we took him to the airport. I think they are beautiful people inside and out.
 God is so good!

I have a lot to do on the home front yet. Our move was big and took a toll on us! Hopefully I can get more done this week...Here's to a great week ahead!

We took a road trip over to Chicago for an afternoon while our son was visiting. We never went before and really wanted to try out Giordano's Chicago style pizza. The pizza was great! Chicago however....I am not a fan. Perhaps I am just not a big city girl. I don't tend to care for busy busy , fast paced, traffic, crowded places in general. It was actually a pretty expensive trip. The toll roads into Chicago, the parking, the meal...Sorry City people...I am not a fan whatsoever.

One thing I liked was probably some of the old architecture. 
That's about it!!!

We would have went on a boat tour but they charge about $40 a person...Are you kidding me? We did walk over to the Millennium Park to check out the Big Bean.

That and the pizza along with just being with my little family was the highlight of the day. It was a nightmare getting out of town...I vowed never to go back. That was good enough for this girl!
