A Corner Revisited
Some of you may remember this corner of my home with this old garage sale table. I had painted it this past Summer (last Summer seems eons ago), black. Well no news flash...she is still black. Like many of you I get the urge to change things up a bit. This time of year can be soo dreary in this part of the country. I needed something a little more Springy. I have had this cute little white shelf thingy (for lack of a better word) I got at a garage sale. I didn't know where to put her. I decided to take down the wall shelf that had been above the little table and paint the white shelf thingy (anyone have a better term for it?) to mesh better with the table. So out came my little bottle of acrylic paint and she became black as well. Now they are harmonious and make quite a pair! I got out some of my birdies....they may be making their debut a bit early..but who cares. I displayed a skeleton key on a ball of twine, set out some of my fave old books, (the top one was my great-grandmother's book), out came my silly little bee skein and she is good to go! Now this corner makes me smile and takes a way a bit of the Winter duldrums! Take that old man Winter! XOXO, cherry

Some thrift finds and a project or two or three!
Square wreath with fruit..2.00! Will hang with some toile ribbon from mirror.
Milk glass urn piece 3.00....will fill with my stamps.
Vintage cherries...1.00! Of course I HAD to have these.
Little mini frames in varied colors...a dollar!
I have been away for a bit because of a heavy heart....I just have not felt like blogging. Some horrible things have come to pass in the past week. I can't go any further with out saying I have felt such sorrow for our friend Becky over at http://sweetcottagedreams.blogspot.com/ . I am sure many of you know she lost her son last week. I just don't understand why these things happen but I know that it brings me closer to my faith when they do. Sure makes you realize your REALLY not in control of your future or those you love. It is all up to the grace of God when he decides to bring you home. If you have not done so yet...please go and say a prayer for Becky and her family right now. Keep her in your thoughts and your heart.

A Curious Assortment...
Yep...that about sums up this post. Actually that sums up my brain right about now. As usual I don't have some insightful clever concise little write-up here. Just an assortment of things. I have been finishing up more orders this week...two more to go and send out. My house is in shabbles. I am behind in some awards and a thank-you for a lovely little gift from a talented gal over at http://barnesfamilylove.blogspot.com/. See that adorable coffee cozy? She makes them. She made a whole whoppin bunch of them and sent them out to a whole whoppin bunch of people. Yeah she's sweet that way! I thank-you and my coffee mug does too! Now my mug is stylin in the toile. Also above there in some order are some more crafts/orders.
Some more playin with the camara in this dark dank dungeon we call home. NO natural light. Also Miss. Andrea from over at http://andreaw123.typepad.com/my_weblog/ is in the process of doing a kitchen redo...she wanted to see my black island. So here she is Andrea. She is a humble one (we were suppose to have a built-in but that is yet another thing the builder messed up)from JC. Penny. I painted her black..she was white. I added a few appliques to her and that is it.
At the bottom are a few thrift finds an adorable milk glass bowl for 1.50!!!! A monogram B linen tea towel. Stands for Bomb jiggety.. pretty sure. Yeah anyway..movin right along. A book with the sweetest illustrations...50 cents. I know I broke the bank on that one. A child's shoe mold and a tole tray. So there you go! Did I just completely confuse you with all the jumbleness? ....I am off to bed...at least I got another post in the same week...by an hour! xoxo, cherry
