A Makeover, Decorating, and More

I'll start out with some decorating. I think I'm done for now. I'm still debating about the fall tree. Thanks to all my readers you emailed me to help me out. I would like to also thank those left comments. I would like to reply to every comment, but some of you have your email blocked. Anyway, I have decided if I attempt to make a tree I will be spray painting one brown. I have a ton of smaller trees in my stash for Christmas.

Anyway, here's a few pics...

I'm not thrilled with the top of the cabinet. I'm still thinking on that.

The makeover... I had this plate in my Christmas stuff. I haven't put it out in years and actually had it in my get rid of pile. LOL. So of course I pulled it out and went to town. I almost forgot to take a before picture as you can tell.

This pic doesn't do it justice... I used burgundy, black and mustard. I'll try to take a better picture and post it tomorrow.

Lastly, I thought I'd show you the fleece my daughter is using for the tie blankets. It is so awesome. The front and back are cut and waiting on her to cut the fringe and tie them up.

I haven't gotten anymore done as I've had a lot on my mind. Yesterday was my birthday. I took the day off from work, but decided to teach. So basically I am double dipping. LOL. I got paid from work and from teaching. Today I am going to my friend Pam's house to craft the day away with my other friends Rose and Stacie. Today we are making grungy jars. I printed up a few labels that I'm going to take with me to share with the others. I'm taking a camera along hopefully to get some pics to share with all of you tomorrow. Have a great day everyone.

Good Morning Sweetie...
How beautiful everything looks at the Gettysburg Homestead. I love your cabinet. It is exquisite.

Your plate, I can't wait to see the finished look. It looks so awesome. Isn't is amazing what a little paint and our imagination can do?

Your daughters blankets are going to be so beautiful.I love the print. I haven't seen fleece that gorgeous.

Have a beautiful day.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I love your fall, looks great!

I never thought about using three colors on a piece. Duh! I always use the basic two. I like the way it came out, you can see some of each color. Neat idea!
