New House

Well, it is official. We signed the final papers and the house is ours! We have been so busying painting and getting ready for the move. We will be moving at the end of this month. Here are a couple of pictures of the house and the yard. I will post lots more as we renovate.

I can't wait to have a swing hanging in these trees

I also made a cake this weekend for my younger cousin who is graduating from High School

Busy Busy

It has been a while since we have posted. Lots have been going on and keeping us very busy. My hubby and I are in the process of buying a 1950's farmhouse that I cannot wait to start painting and fixing up! Hopefully we will close this week and I can share pictures with everyone. For now, I have been doing as much projects at home as I can to get ready for the move. Megan and I made a trip with our moms to New Orleans last week to some salvage stores to see what we can find. We had a great time and came home with some goodies. For now, here are a few project that I have been working on...

This is a table that I bought at a garage sale a few years ago. I stripped the top and stained it dark. I painted and distressed the bottom. I love it and cannot wait to find a perfect place for it in out new house.

This is an old chandelier that needs cleaning and rewiring

I am also working on repainting these old lockers to put in my stepsons room. I painted them fire engine red and I cannot wait to see them in his room

And last are these chairs that I picked up in Canton, TX. I am in the process of painting these and then distressing them. I also found an awesome stone colored fabric with birds sketched on it that I will recover them in. 

With all of these project going on, I still found time to make this wedding cake this past weekend.
