Hello Blogland!! Happy Veteran’s Day and a heartfelt thank you to all who have served and are serving!! We owe you a debt we can not repay for Freedom is never free!
I’ve been keeping busy getting some christmas projects done this weekend. It always seems like I have two or three projects in progress. I’m one of those people that thrives on having something to do. Gotta keep my hands busy. I need to create something everyday or I get cranky.
a popular motif in the 20’s and 30’s were red-roofed cottages. I came across a few unfinished paper mache cottages at a yard sale this summer for next to nothing. I decided I wanted to re-do the kitchen christmas tree (yep–I have a tree in the kitchen) with cottages theme. I’ve been working on painting them up so I can glitter and embellish them. I also want to make some cinnamon gingerbread boys to go with it. Here’s a picture of the progress-getting ready to paint another coat of red on the roofs!
This week is the Fall Color Fashion Challenge. Monday’s color is Teal. I wore this today as I’m off tomorrow and will be in my highly attractive painting clothes.!!! This outfit was inspired by the buttons I made into earrings last week.
Here’s the inspiration!! I loved the teal, lime, gold and wine color combo!
Here’s my take on it. Teal was an easy color for me as it’s my favorite color and I have several items in it.
It feels GOOD getting back into color!!! I’ve gotten everything picked out for this challenge week and I’m excited about it!!
The hubster got some sort of computer thingy in the mail that came in a nice big box. Our cats are currently “fighting” over the rights to the new “throne”!! so here are some cute cat pictures!
I’m going to be linking up with the fabulous Patti for Visible Monday. I’m off to catch up on my blog reading and seeing what all you fine folk have been up to this weekend!!
I’ll be back tomorrow for Makeover Monday:bathroom Edition!! Have a great evening!
