I had LOTS I wanted to get done while Phillip and Kimberly were gone...and Jesus helped me to pretty much get it all done.
~Here's a pic of the morning they left headed for Colombia.~
~My Sweetheart is NOT one to like to paint a lot of furniture. He says that "the painting fad"...will go away one of these days, and then some people will be SICK IF they painted over antiques.
However, we had a few non-antique pieces in our house that were either given to us, or we RESCUED from the trash...and I figured he wouldn't mind if I painted those.
This table sets in our living room. It sets beside an oak book shelf, which I knew Phillip wouldn't want me to paint, but I thought if I painted this table that someone gave us, it would BRIGHTEN THE CORNER. :-)
~My neighbor had this out by her sidewalk to throw away. I rescued it for my front porch.
~I got this rocking chair at goodwill years ago and it was quite weather-beaten from being on our front porch.~
Our front porch ... the one I painted is on your right!~
~And from somewhere we got 2 kids rocking chairs that we have had on our front porch.~
~When Mary was a new born and we were staying at someone's house....out by our church, one of us happened to see this brown piece of furniture out by a neighbor's trash.
My Moma and Kimberly used a dolly to go and drag it over to where we were staying, 'cause I knew I would need it for my kitchen.~
So, I got to thinking maybe I could paint it and take off the doors and make a curtain. ~
~I painted it white and distressed it.~
Phillip BEGGED him to let him BUY IT and then he brought it back to me! I love it!
The little bowls are from my Moma.
The little Milk sign came from Noah.~
My neighbor on this street was also throwing away a white shelf.
It was in good condition, but had pink smiley faces drawn on it.
So, I painted it as well.~
I love that "D" that Elijah and Bryan found in our fire ashes in our back yard.~
~One day when I was painting, this is what ABIGAIL WAS DOING! She was digging in the bag of cheese from Sams and dumping it everywhere, and eating it too.~
~Drinking out of Mommy's china tea cup.~
~Abigail and her Uncle Daryl.~
~Since Darla's concert was late Saturday night, I decided to wear the same outfit to church Sunday morning. And then just for fun, I added this hat.
Here's my friend Megan, who was visiting from out west.~
~Last Friday night, I took our 4 youngest and their cousin Bryan to a couple stores and then to Chick-fil-a to help our lonely hearts. (Sarah was at a church youth function.)~
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS FOR THEIR TRIP TO COLOMBIA AND FOR THE KIDS AND I!!
