Before and some Afters












Calvini Whodini who wears a bikini and likes fine martinis! It might not be Shakespeare..but it works for our family!










So being that it is Martin Luther King Day (a man to be remembered)...TMC has been running movies with great actors such as Sidney Poitier . He is one of my all time favorites. I love "A Patch of Blue"..and "Lillies of the Field"....both are top notch films. I am one of those that have a problem with wanting to keep my hands busy while watching television...so I finished up some projects I had started last week. I had grand schemes of finishing up my craft room (I soooo want to share that with you when it is finished) but that did not happen. I did however finish two items that are now in there. Remember the little cannisters...well they are now future holders of bits and baubles. I also picked up some mini clipboards for a 1.00. I made one into a picture frame of sorts. It holds a picture of my heart...my boy on his birthday.
Our Calvin Cat got in on the act as well...he constantly takes poor Riley's bed....and Riley is well....how do I say it....a bit of a baby. He is scared of this 10 pound kitty. So I snapped a pic of Calivini whodini taking up this HUGE bed. Lastly I recovered this thrift frame....you remember this project ...http://cherrysjubileehome.blogspot.com/2008/07/couple-of-befores-and-afters-and.html same type of project but used paper...that looks just like fabric. I LOVE that paper. I want to put a special pic in it. I already moved one of my pitchers as well. Nothing stays in the same spot for long. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a good holiday today. Cherry

The polka dot cannisters are so sweet. You can not beat polka dots or checks. I love them both. Your son is really cute. My cairn terrier, Maggie is scared of the neighbors cat, She will start out to chase him and first thing you know he is chasing her. She is such a big brave dog. My hubby said she should be ashamed to let a cat chase her in her own yard. I can't wait to see more of your projects, but Cherry girl, Do you ever sleep? Have a wonderful evening.

In regards to your question on my blog...it is nice in June in Florida. It is not too hot yet, sometimes we have a few afternoon showers, but not bad.
Have you been to Disneyworld before?

Hi Cherry,
I have admired your blog for quite some time. You are so inspiring with everything you do and such beautiful pictures too. I happened upon the comment you left on Lions, Tigers and Boys. You had asked her about tips for eating at Disney. All I can say is "Tonga Toast" at the Polynesian...to die for. If you want more tips let me know.
Have a great night,
~Karen~

What cute canisters! Just adorable as is Mr. Calvin Whodini! I also love what you did with the clipboards. Very, very clever!

I cried my eyes out the other night watching Sidney Portier in a film called, "The Last Brickmaker in America" on the Hallmark Channel, but "Lilies of the Field" is another favorite!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Great projects! My M-I-L bumped into Sidney Poitier in NYC. Literally. She turned around and BAM!...it knocked her right to the ground. She said he was such a gentleman. Helped her up, brushed her off. Apologized even though it wasn't his fault. Funny story though!

Thanks for your constant inspiration! You had ask me about my "faux" tin backsplash - it came from Lowe's - $20.00 a piece - you can cut it with scissors and it installs easily with adhesive!

Oh my goodness I just love those canisters. I am crazy about red and white polka dots. In fact I just did a post with all things red and white polka dots...all of the items can be found on ebay, etsy or the feathered nest's website.

Did you use scrapbook paper on those?

Also, our cats are almost identical. Too funny!
