Work Update

Well the weather cooled down enough for me to feel like getting in the garage and building some much needed storage for the bathroom. I really liked how they turned out, the shelf over the toilet holds cleaners and extra toilet paper. The large cupboard is for towels and extra shampoos and such. The room is finally coming together!

I'm figuring out how late in the year it is with this colder weather. I've got to get my rear in gear for my shows this upcoming season! Here is just a photo of some things I'm starting on. I'm not quite sure what they will become, I guess we'll see!

Well, well, well, what have I been up to? September already? It actually feels more like late October outside, confusing the senses. We've gotten so busy at the car lot I haven't been able to work on my "crafty things" there, so I brought all of my things home. Now finding a place for them was difficult. I don't have a room that is just my craft room. Luckily I had a big cupboard that I had just finished. Can yo believe I bought this on ebay for $50? And it was local! That does not happen often in Nebraska.

This smaller one I've had for a little while. It is so deep it holds a lot! The last picture is a corner in the room that has a built in shelf unit. I sewed the curtain to cover up my mess behind, then I used the same fabric to cover the cork board.

This last weekend, I used the extra day off to get some of my fall decor out. I didn't want to go all out Halloween yet, just a couple little fall touches. There was a flea market over Memorial weekend and I found this wonderful dough box. I realized the bottom wasn't original, although the dealer tried to convince me it was. But I have always wanted one. It looks great with fall stuff! I found this neat whispy fall berry garland at Hobby Lobby, I knew right away I wanted it for the chandelier.

I don't know if you can see him, he blends in with the rug. This is my favorite Halloween decoration, but I can't put him away after the season. Ruger is my part Persian pain in the butt. If he's feeling deprived, he jumps in to my arms and makes me carry him around. It's a wonder I get anything done. The Siamese, Josie, is my husbands little girl. She has a knack for getting into trouble...

Here are some more great things I got at the flea market, old wood spoons. Can you image eating out of these? This wonderful sled I got at a shed sale. Wont it look wonderful on the table at Christmas time to create levels?

I have managed to work on some new things too. I've got a fall rug hooked. I just need to bind the edges. I'm still new to rug hooking, I draw my own patterns. I've got some winter and Christmas ideas brewing.

Well this has been one of my longer posts, but it has been awhile since I've posted. I'm trying to get better at that. Til next time ~Prim Blessings
