Happy Friday!



A little randomness on this Friday 
afternoon.

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 
very interesting!
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-
end!
