Hi y'all. This morning I'm getting ready to head off to Houston for a few days. My son turned 22 this past weekend, so I'll be taking him and his precious other half to dinner, I'm going to hook up with my Bible study girlfriends and go to Beth Moore's bible study tonight and tomorrow I'll be going to dinner with some girls from high school that I haven't seen in 23ish years!! There will also be serious snuggling with my brand new nephew, can't wait to meet him!! I will also be dragging my mom and possibly son's girlfriend all over Houston shopping at the stores we don't have down here! Any bloggers in the valley that need Houston provisions speak up! :)
I wanted to post a few pictures I took this weekend. A post on Maria's Blog a few months ago about vignette's inspired me and I've been kind of playing around with doing it. I'm not good at it, it's something I've always had problems with, you know, the finishing details. Maria's post made it seem simple enough. Let me disclaimer this by showing you a picture of how the table by the couch usually looks
Of course the boy is in school right now so his glasses and most of his pens aren't there, and I did throw away the empty dinty moore can before taking the picture! Now here's some pics of a company's coming side table.
You southern girls will recognize my secret little habit in the background! Me and Sonic, we are like that I tell you! Isn't this picture so much better than teenage boys nightstand? So peaceful!
The flowers are in my granny's baby bottle! I thank the Lord for her packrat ways!! I have so much family history from her!
This is the other side table. This table was my Papa's night stand, it's scratched and beat up, I've gorilla glued the heck out of this think, it was in pieces when I got it. I will probably paint it the same color as the other side table when I get around to it!
Y'all be sure to notice my little violet plant! This is the first one I've ever been able to keep alive! Despite my cats best attempts to kill it!! It just keeps blooming and blooming! :)
This is my old, but new to me gateleg table in my breakfast area. I've been sanding away, little by little. It should be done by Christmas, I hope! But I wanted it to look nice and have a focal point so I put this together.
So, you like? See any tips that would make any off it better?
One more thing, this is to show nannykim what my new spray paint trigger looks like, I think hubby bought it at Walmart, but I know I've seen them at Lowe's!
Love this thing!!
Alrighty, I'm off to load the car!! You ladies have a good week! :)
