 Good evening, everyone!  I've been playing a bit of catch-up today, since we had two snow days and I was trying to take some "sick days" for myself, but with boys home from school, it's hard for mommy to get a true sick day.  I'm sure others can relate!  I did a lot of lounging and some sleeping in and I am doing better.  I hadn't had a haircut since November, so that had to happen today, along  (read more …)

 Good evening all of my furniture-loving friends!  I really enjoyed looking through last week's links to pick my favorites. I'm always inspired and often blown away by some of the talented folks out there.  Thanks so much for taking the time to share your gifts with all of us.  Here are my favorites from last week (though I actually had more than three this week!)

 It has been one of those really busy weeks where I'm trying to fit way to much work into not enough time!  I'm sure you can all relate.  It's all been good stuff, though.  I finished three furniture pieces and took pictures along the way, so I can share how I did what I did.  I've also been juggling about 10 different ideas I want to implement and we're getting the studio ready for our first  (read more …)

 It's been a long time since we've gathered here for our furniture party.  I am looking forward to seeing what everyone's been up to over the holidays.  I have actually been working on quite a bit of furniture this week that I'll be sharing soon.  For now, here are my favorites from December 18... This ombre dresser by Dionne of The Turquoise Iris is so stunning and unique.  I love how she  (read more …)

 I've been decorating for Christmas for weeks, but for some reason, the fact I actually needed to shop for presents snuck up on me.  I ordered a few things online, but finally I went out shopping and now I'm feeling (more) ready for Christmas day, not just decorating for it.  So, since the holidays are upon us, this will be the last FFF of 2014.  I've been pretty surprised with how many of you  (read more …)

 I spent a good part of the day today making cinnamon ornaments, which filled the whole house with deliciousness.  It was a fun "craft" to do on an overcast day with occasional flurries.  The boys wanted to eat them as an after-school snack, but I had to explain, at least twice, that they have glue in them and wouldn't be very tasty or good for one's tummy.  I'll share the recipe and how they  (read more …)

Boy, another great furniture week!  Sometimes I feel like I can't think of a fresh way to express the creativity and great style that I see linked up each week and maybe, after a few hundred (really) of these link parties, I simply can't.  I'll just say that I'm always impressed and inspired.  I'll thank you for that and leave it there. I actually just picked up a few new dressers to work on.  (read more …)

This was another week when the entries for FFF blew me away.  It's like everyone is trying to get a bunch of furniture painted, refinished and spruced up before the holidays!  Speaking of, can you believe Thanksgiving is just a week away?  Wow...yeah.  So, next week we won't be meeting.  We'll all be too busy hanging out with our families and eating pie.  We'll pick things up the following week  (read more …)
