A little randomness on this Friday
This armoire was my mom's it went
with her bedroom set which a friend
bought. I saved this piece for me. My
initial thought was that I would use it
in our living room, then the thought
moved to my sewing room. Well, it sat
in our garage for quite awhile, my light-
bulb came on and I decided to move
some things in the kitchen then use
this as a replacement.
Did a bit of updating the handles.
Traded the door handle for knobs
and painted the drawer handles
black. I'm going to paint a "chalk-
board" on the left side some time
soon. Now all my cookbooks have
a nice home behind the doors and
the drawers hold all sorts of goodies.
Silly me thought I put the pic on with
the doors open but no, another of the
one above. Removed it.
Made a shirt for the first day of school.
Used the old school stencils and paint.
Used the same stencils to make a new
bag for my school drink mugs. Having a
bag for them alleviates "juggling" the
mugs when going into my building.
On Tuesday of this week Mr. Ken and
I went to the movie theatre to see "I
Love Lucy" colorized. It was so fun to
see five Lucy episodes in color. Before
it started the producers explained the
laborious job of colorizing clothes,
faces, furniture, set decorations etc. So
A DVD will be released on August 13th.
It will have the episode we saw plus
several more. Would be a great gift for
a "Lucy" fan!
Yesterday, my first day back to school,
we celebrated Mr. Ken's birthday!
Saturday will bring more birthday fun.
I had a great summer, got A LOT accomp-
lished, saw several friends for lunch and
movies, saw a total of four movies, enjoyed
time with Mr. when he had vacation days,
hoping to start a book that I picked up
from our library--our city opened a brand
new state of the art library so we had to
check it out of course.
Now, it is back to school, last two days
were in meetings, our kids come on
Monday for 1/2 day and Tuesday starts
the year off with a full day and we are
off to the races for while.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week-
~Keep on Dreaming~
