Day 281 - December 31, 2010 - Today's Projects

Last week I made a trip to Habitat for Humanity and I
found this drawer pull for less then a $1.00. There was
only one and I thought it was rather neat. So....yes, I
took it home with me and had NO clue as to what I was
going to do with it.

Until the other day.

I decided that I would just mount in on wood to hang in
the living room next to the door. Just for the cool look
of it.

I had this plaque on hand that was purchased at
a yard sale at some point for a whole whopping
10 cents.

I pulled out my black paint and coated my piece of wood.

I then placed the drawer pull on the painted wood with Grollia glue.

Thought it turned out great.

My next project was something that I have seen while checking out other blogs (sorry I was unable to find it again to post that link). I took a wooden candle holder that I had on hand, it was either purchased at Goodwill or on clearance at Hobby Lobby for less then a dollar.

I was not sure that the base of this one was wide enough to handle the project I had in mind, so I …

Day 279 - December 29, 2010 - Growing Bubbles

My brother has recently moved into an older ranch style
type home that he and his son, Chase, gutted and redid.
And beautifully I must add.

I was going to be house/animal sitting for my brother
and sister in law but before heading out Lori (SIL)
went over some operational aspects of the home.
How the microwave worked, the stove, the
tv controls, the five sprayer shower....but when
she got to the tub, she laughed and basically told
me I was on my own.

Later that evening I decided that I wanted
to take my book, run some water in the tub, add
some bubbles and lay back in this to read.....

I planned to settled back to relax, which by the way, is not my style
to lay back in a tub to read and relax....but give it a try I would.

I ran my water.....

and added bubbles..

Laid back and picked up the controls. Yes, controls to the tub. Now I know why Lori pretty much told me I was on my own.

Lights came on under the water......

and they changed colors.

Neat! So I decided to turn the water jet whirlpool thingys. There …

Day 278- December 28, 2010 - House Sitting

When my nephew use to race my brother and sister
in law would do a lot of traveling to attend these races.
They were in need of someone to house/animal sat while
they were away. I would be this person a lot of the times.

My nephew no longer races and the array of animals
have changed. Some are gone and new ones have
entered....and its been awhile since I have sat for them.

My sister in laws Mom and Dad were unable to make
it in for Christmas, so the family went for a visit after
Christmas. Three children out on break from college,
and one on break from high school took off with my
brother and sister in law to go visit. I packed up to
spend a few days house/dog/bird/horse sitting!

Two dogs, the labs, were taken along on the ride to
the mountains of North Carolina while two collie mix
dogs of my brothers stayed with me. Along with
those dogs I kept two of my nieces dogs, a
cocker spaniel and a mix breed, and my dog,
The KING, Dakota.

This is Moses. One of the collie mixes. He is a sweetie,
but I think he i…

Day 275 - December 25, 2010 - White Christmas

Nashville, Tennessee~ Christmas Eve~
Snow~ Makes for a White Christmas~~~

Oops, I think Santa dropped something in the yard
in his haste to stay ahead of the snow.
Christmas Day ~ Snow covered and spitting snow all day.
First white Christmas in 17 years for the Nashville and
surrounding areas. Beautiful.

Love the way the snow settles on the branches and leaves.....

and between the bars of the fence.

Even the birds were out and about enjoying the day.

Christmas, pine cones and snow....makes for a pretty picture.

Report for Christmas night, the roads are freezing careful when you are out. Cedartown Ga. and surrounding areas of Atlanta, first white Christmas in 100 years. The news just reported that some parts of Alabama have snow to day.......for the first time ever. Hope you enjoyed your Christmas Day. Thanks for stopping in,
