{my version of a farmhouse table}

  Dear Santi (current husband), I have recently fallen for a new fella.  He’s massive, rugged, huge, sturdy, he will support me in all my crafty endeavors – which you currently groan about.  He doesnt mind a little spilled paint,  glitter , fabric thrown about, papers and tools everywhere.  He wont complain when i leave a giant mess on his huge top, he understands me – he knows that i am a messy girl.  We just get each other… I could go on and on about my new love, i could tell you how much i love his big strong wood, but i wouldnt want to make you jealous (and i dont want to lose readers for being nasty!).  Anyways, i am sorry but you must move on so my new fella can move in                                                                                                                                     Sausha   Yup, that’s what i would say – and tonight if  i […]

{4th of July}

{4th of July}

> Happy 4th of July everyone!!!  I hope everyone is having a good long weekend :) ***************** Long ago…back before by blogging days, i made this flag out of reclaimed wood for my sons room – the wood was on its way to the dump – very sad.  But, no fear!  I rescued it and made this cute flag – it still even has the old bird poop on it (the wood was from a bird coop) – is that gross, should i even be telling people this?  The poop is on the back side – i was just to lazy to scrub it off ;) So no tutorial – just some pics Each piece of wood is a 2×6 so the flag is pretty big and heavy.  I watered down all the paint and then sanded a lot of it off.  I love how the 3rd piece has a […]
