One More day!

Good Morning blogging friends~
Just a reminder that my giveaway ends tomorrow March 1st.  I will pick a winner in the morning, so I do hope that you all get your name in.  We are anxiously waiting for a new family member, our neice is in the hospital having her first baby.  Its been over 24 hours so this has been a long wait.  I have been in the craft room this whole week making lots of makeovers and will post them this week, it sure passes the time waiting for spring to come!
Hope that everyone has a great Sunday...

Makeover Monday!

Good Morning on this lovely Monday...I spent the weekend at my son's 3rd grade basketball tournaments, so fun to watch him play.  In an earlier post I had showed you a cupboard that I got from a friend who was moving....Well I repainted it and love how it turned out, I was not sure if I wanted it to be all black, but as I got painting it did turn out nice.  I also will show you my daughter's first prom dress, she was so happy to find the one she had her eye on.  It was a great day shopping with my 2 daughters, they sure grow up way too fast.  Just a reminder that my giveaway is going on for 1 more week, so please continue to mention it to your blogging friends.  
I hope that you stay warm, and hopefully March is a better month as far as weather, I know that I am so ready for spring!

~Prom dress shopping~

Hello and yes I need to be in bed, but am so excited to be going shopping with my 2 girls tomorrow, since they have no school :-)  My oldest daughter, Samantha, is 16 and going to her first with spring in the NEAR future its time to find that dress.  I have the camera charging and the van full of gas, we are leaving early so we have ALL day to find that perfect dress!  Its an exciting time for her and I...hoping to fit a little other shopping as maybe antique shopping, but I know she would say that this other is a little more important and I would agree, but hey its worth trying.  I hope that you all have a great weekend!  I will keep you all posted on how it all goes.

Happy Ash Wednesday!

Good Morning and Happy Ash Wednesday!  I always love this time of year, and man do we need this time of year.  Its a great time to reflect on what we can be doing better.  I know in our household everyone can improve on something and it doesn't have to be a BIG thing....God always loves the little things that can improve our life in anyway!  Our family will be going to church tonight to receive ashes.  I hope that all of you have a wonderful day and thanks so much for visiting my blog, I have enjoyed reading the comments and just knowing all the friendships out there that are being made.

Gifts from a friend~

Good Morning friends...I have to share with you a few pictures of some awesome treasures that I picked up from a friend yesterday who is moving and needs to downsize...The cupboard is so cool, but I think I might repaint it, any suggestions?  It is going into my craft room to store more STUFF.  The window was another true gift....I repainted it black and then stained it with a dark walnut....I can see it with 2 wreaths on it and a big plant in front of it.  I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend and I will be posting my 2nd giveaway on Monday...SO STAY TUNED!

A few makeovers,,,

Good Morning and Happy Friday!  We got 8 inches of snow yesterday, so back to the yucky roads and shoveling.  I think this winter has seemed so long and with living on a farm the work is always twice as much when you have wintery weather.  We are calving now and so its always a worry when the weather gets bad.  I have been working on some makeovers with some old shelves and sconces.  I will share them with you and I am sure I will be back to show more.  I also have some good news, I have an interview on Monday morning...kinda nervous, but excited too!
Until next time...

More new treasures!

Hello, I sure hope that today is finding you hard at any project you may have in the making.  I was so lucky to find more goodies at GW yesterday, I have been wanting to distress some shelves and sconces, without paying alot and look in the picture at some of the items I found!
I also went to see my sister in law, who had some foot surgery in January and found out they are moving in March and she wants to downsize some of her treasures and gee...I am so lucky to be her first pick...I can't believe that she is getting rid of 3 awesome old I latched them up for a little of nothing! 
That is all for now, we are to have more snow tonight and tomorrow, so I have some chilli in the crockpot and my plans are to work on some makeovers tomorrow, I will post as soon as I have them completed!

A New Month...Brings new ideas!

Happy Monday and along with that brings a new month.  Over the weekend we had our annual Bull sale that is at our farm, and it went so well!  Its exciting to see that the crowd was here to see what we had to offer and all of the bulls sold, so that is a great thing too!
I decided to put my snowmen friends away for another year and with that comes some heavy cleaning and organizing.  Its  kinda nice to reduce some of the clutter and venture out to redo some things that you had sitting around.  I am so looking forward to what February brings us, its a short month and it also means its closer to SPRING!  With that I am going to wish you lots of great wishes for a good week and hope that you all are staying happy and healthy!
