Sunday, March 3, 2013 stop my mind from spinning

...Ahhh!  It won't stop.

Spring is around the corner.

Lent is in full-swing.  I am plugging along with my bag-o'-day.

Work is busy; just like I like it.

And I have a gathering I am getting ready to host here at my home.  And you know these events. really get me cracking on finishing up mini-projects like mantle arrangements, hanging pictures (and new mirrors), and setting out pretty fruit arrangements.

And that is just the beginning...those are the 'little things'.

Projects....projects....more projects to do.

I think Mark's hope would be that I work on this beauty that I picked up off of Craigslist a few weeks ago....

He is convinced I found it on the side of the road near a garbage bin.

Nope.  Not working on that yet.  #Toodamncoldoutsidestill

Instead, this is the next project I am going to tackle.

We bought this antique set when we lived down at West Point.  They were in pristine condition and then we...gasp....used them.  Yikes.

It didn't take very long for them to disintegrate into this condition.   I recently got around to getting an estimate as to what it would cost to repair them.


$110.  A piece.

These chairs are my newest crazy idea.  I can purchased the rush fiber for about $20.

Wish me luck.
