The Weekend




Happy Weekend before Christmas everyone! Is everyone ready for the big day? The good news is that I’m done shopping for gifts, the bad news is that I still have to wrap them all.

The other day I noticed my gifts-to-wrap pile keeps getting mysteriously larger. I investigated last night (dusting off my Nancy Drew skills) it seems that Bryan has been piling the gifts he bought (that aren’t mine) on the wrapping pile.

He knows I’m onto him…this morning I casually mentioned it and he walked out of the room with a sheepish grin…He thinks he’s gotten away with it.  OH BOY will he be surprised when I break out the wrapping paper and tape tonight and recruit him as sheepish grinning elf!

May your weekend be Merry and Bright and filled with your own elves!

    I’ve recently been looking at your website and am enjoying your projects. I’m a little older and lived on a lake. Now enjoying big boating. I noticed your dresser under the TV and would suggest crackle paint in a white over gold or brass. I did a chest for a hallway and it’s a showpiece that gets lots of compliments. So check out crackle paint from Home Depot (samples you can take home). I finished mine with old brass hardware. Have fun!

      Hi Charlotte, Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a note. So happy to have found another lake and boat lover. Ohhh I do love crackle paint that could be fun for the dresser. I’ll have to go check out the samples at Home Depot. Thanks so much for the tip and for reading!
