Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday! So what’s NEW with all of you? I wish the NEW thing with me would be something exciting like traveling to somewhere I’ve never been, or learning something fabulous. However, the NEW thing at our house is lighting fixtures – now that’s exciting eh? :o)  Don’t get me wrong…they were a long time coming and I’m thrilled we finally got them in! Although once you get one light fixture, you have to update the fixtures in the adjacent rooms too, and before you know it, you’ve shelled out $900!  That could’ve been an airline ticket somewhere exciting! Oh well!

 

Another miscellaneous item:  I really, REALLY, would like to start a photo-a-day challenge like Connie at Basildonkitchens. BUT could I keep it up?  That’s quite the commitment! Would I?  Should I?  Could I?  I’m still debating.  I’ll let you know.

Oh!  And another NEW thing.  My hubby finished up the picket fence and arbor that is supposed to keep my son’s great dane dog out of my garden area:

I should have got a pic of the picket fence too, because it’s cute, but I can’t wait until I have greenery growing around it.  Hopefully, eventually, it’ll look more like this:

There’s many, many, many NEW things I want to try, learn, do…so many!  I need more hours in a day!  I’ll try to get to a few and update you all next week.

Have a great day!

Happy Wednesday!  I’ve been trying to whittle down my wedding preparation to-do list, and thought I’d share our latest NEW project.  For my son’s wedding luncheon, we’re having the main course catered, but I’m doing a dessert bar and an Italian Soda bar.  SO!  Look what my fabulous hubby made:  wooden sign holders!  I like them a LOT.  I may distress the corners a bit…then again, maybe not.  Whatdayathink?

I printed the signs from Our Best Bites.

Hi all!  If you remember when I posted the before and after photos of our kitchen remodel, I mentioned we had a few unfinished projects left to go.  Well, the board and batten project in our dining room is now finished…yeah! 🙂

As you can see, I now have MORE LEDGES TO DUST! But I like the look enough to suffer through the unpleasant side-effects!

Have a great weekend!  Do or learn something NEW!
