How about those Grandkids?

My granddaughter "Sophie" having a wonderful afternoon with her dad!

My son "James" and granddaughter "Maddie" at the golf course.

My granddaughter "Haleigh" was asked to be in the Big Picture in the school library. I am so proud of her! She just keeps growing like a weed!

Sprucing up the Kitchen part 2

So, I wanted to add crown molding to the eating area of my kitchen. The walls are kinda off white. I had decided to paint the bottoms a different color. I just couldnt make up my mind......

Ok, white won over. But, I sure did like that "French" blue~

Oh, I just love this molding!

The results are fab!

My new LOve! I am getting obsessed with Starbucks Tazo Shaken Iced Passion Tea~ yum

Spruce up a Buffet~*~*



I have been sprucing up my kitchen! I decided to redo my buffet. Now, I have been putting this off for a few years. I purchased it used and the aged green finish was really pretty nice, but it always seemed so drab! Well, I finally took the leap! I was inspired by Cindy's My Romantic home! I just love her blog! So, I gave the buffet a good sanding, ordered "Rose" appliques from and wood-glued them on. A little primer, a lot of paint and tah dah! I still havent decided what kind of knobs to put on. So, if anyone has any ideas.....Let me know!
Oh, and the drab is gone! The white really brightens up the place!

Wow, now this bracelet is "BLING"! I just loved it!
