Lemonade for Sale!

I had so much fun making a child sized potting bench (shown below) that I decided to make a lemonade stand as well. It was a BLAST! Oh and the owls decided to show their beautiful eyes too!

My first attempt at paisley... And a few other close-ups.

Back at the Market!

I'm so excited to be back at the Farmers Market in Puyallup Washington ! Spring is finally here and so are all of the beautiful blooms! (I'm speaking of my new Flower faces).

After pictures of my kitchen.

What a difference a can of paint can make and some old fence boards!
Look! No more burnt stove hood and walls.
Notice the trim around the doors . Next we are going to paint the doors the same as the cabinets.
Couldn't stop with the cherry border on the wall I put some on my bread box(a lot faster than painting).
I used a cute shelf normally used for hanging pans but I turned it into a valance with punch cups hanging from the hooks. I got them at either Goodwill or a garage sale, (cost:$2.50)
I am enjoying the new look and now looking forward to decorating for the holidays!

On the home front...

Things have been pretty crazy around here as I prepare to get a few of my grandkids until my daughter gets well. I am trying to do some fall cleaning. I have the best friends ever! I will show you some before and after pictures of my kitchen. Could not have done it without help from friends!
Ok so here is a before picture of the kitchen where my husband tries to burn us down at least once a day.

A face lift for my kitchen!

I have the best friends ever! I am possibly getting some grandkids from foster care and needed to make some major improvements inside and outside of my house. Money was an issue since I didn't really have extra...
Anyway here are some of the during and after pictures.
My friend Margo is short enough to crawl on top of my fridge and get the hard to reach places. Notice the cupboards and how they look before the face lift!
