A Few Updates. . .

So, I did get a few bags completed and am working on adding them to the shop. These are small bags and are perfect for little girls (or big girls who like little bags!)

1 Down, 1 To Go. . .

I am participating in this weeks Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch blog. I love looking at what other people "transform" and every Monday this blog has links to different bloggers and their transformations. Go and check them out!

I mentioned in a post or so before that I wanted new white rocking chairs on my front porch but didn't want to spend the money to buy new ones. Especially when I had two perfectly good, matching wooden rockers already. So instead, I decided to paint them. I have successfully painted one of them and have one more to do. I think they look great and they definitely brighten up the porch.



These are the opposite rockers, as you can tell from the opposite side of the porch in the photos. I forgot to take a picture before I started painting this one.
I am very please with how this one turned out and can't wait to finish the other one.

With a paintbrush in hand. . .

After a busy day today that included pressure washing the front porch and steps and then painting all of the railings on the porch (thanks for the help mom!) I decided the rocking chairs on the front porch needed some "doing".
This is what I currently have (2 that look just alike):

However, this is what I would like to have:

But because I am too cheap frugal to pay about $160 for 2 brand new white rockers, I now have a paintbrush in hand.
