I think it's here, I think it's here, FINALLY SPRING !!

Even though today we had all three: sunshine, rain and snow, right now it is sunny again...some of the plants are popping up outside and we have started watering them. There was a chipmonk on our front porch today and the birds are gathering stuff for their nests. I think SPING is finally here!

My project is almost completed. I have painted three chairs, and the table top. One chair is in the process of being stripped, three times! Then the table legs are going to be stripped too. I wanted to leave the table legs "chippy", but Roger felt it looked too primative...a look I love! However, the paint keeps falling off on the area rug! So, I am going to strip them too and paint them. I have to get this done soon, as we are expecting company in about a week and a half.

I am also trying to work on a new lampshade made from denim (old jeans) and old lace too. I'll show a picture when it is completed.

Well, you all have a great week. I am changing jobs soon, and will be very busy...but will try to write while all this is going on!

You sure do sound like a busy bee. I'm jealous of all your energy and delightful projects. I'm feeling a bit lazy lately. Please post photos of your completed projects...I'd love to see them.

I can't wait to see your table and chairs when they're finished. And I hope you will let us see the denim lampshade. My sweetheart is heading for a retreat in Antelope this weekend. That's not too far from you - it's on your side of the mountains! I hear you will probably have more snow in the next couple of days. Nice days to stay in and work on your projects! ~Adrienne~

That was me who deleted the post! For some reason Blogger did something strange and it looked like my first attempt had not posted! Strange!! ~Adrienne~
