We headed out of town for a long weekend at our friend's cabin.
Didn't the cupboards all fly open at some point in the movie Poltergeist?
I was beginning to worry that a ghost had taken up residence in our house.
Fortunately, the cabinets were just about all open, because the little monsters... um I mean kids were searching for a snack.
Thankfully no ghosts! But next time ~~ Umm, shut the cabinets.
A song to you from your girls:
Ok enough said.
Now to the make over....
I headed to the fabric store the other day on a mission to find fabric to make curtains. Which I did not find (for those of you wondering). I did however find a great deal on some vinyl that was the same color as the leather couch in our great room. Perfect for the stools in our kitchen! So I set to work ~ actually pretty easy work at that.
Pulling off the old vinyl.
Measuring out the new.
Pulling, smoothing and stapling it on.
And Voila ~ a makeover!
Why did I wait so long?
Action sleeping in ~ past 6:30 anyway!
Sassy got a little chilly.
We did some boating.
We played at the beach.
We enjoyed being with each other.
We even roasted a few marshmallows!
It was a little over one year ago when a tragic accident took the life of someone our family cared about and loved deeply. She was a wife, mother, daughter, a teacher, she was exuberant, she was funny and loving. She was too young.
4. Loosly gather your petals up and wrap pipecleaner around the bottom of the flower.
6. Repeat for as many flowers as you want.
7. Paint any design or pattern you want on your can (Sassy painted bees ~ as her teachers theme for the year was "busy bees") using your acrylic paints.
7. When the can is dry, put your flowers in and fill with chocolates (or whatever you wish to use) to hold them in place.
