We are leaving on our vacation very soon, and I just wanted to get in a few words to all you wonderful bloggers before we left! I added a new lamp to my blog (check it out below) and a picture of our 1956 T-Bird at our car club's recent July 4th Car Show. It's such a cute car, I love to ride in it with the top off! Roger takes it out whenever he can! Well, we are headed down South to visit family and friends and when we return I'll be posting some new pictures and hopefully finish the construction on my blog! I've been so busy with work and the car show and other things, that I haven't been able to get it done.

However, remember the project I had painting my kitchen table and chairs? Well, they are finally DONE! I painted them an off-white, and made new cushions for the chairs, using the floral needlepoints I found yard-saleing. So what do you think?

You all have a great two weeks, I know I will (I get to see my grandkids! Yee Haa!)

Hi Marilyn -
I love your chairs. They are so nice - just right! Maybe one of these days I'll get to your part of our state. We're trying to work out something with family near you. Hopefully it won't be while you're away.

Have a safe and wonderful trip. Can't wait to see what you have to share when you're back.

(I'm still working on my room where the lamp will be. It's in here but not ready to show the rest of the world yet. This is the last room to get finished.)
