This was my Christmas present from Phil
I LOVE the sewing machine
but the table wasn't working very well for my projects
so I wanted to come up with another use for it
 so I took out the machine
 started sanding
 and started staining
(this was a frame I got from a yard sale a while ago)
and started getting excited 
but then it started raining while the stain was drying
No Bueno.
Then HAIL.  
 But I think they survived. 
Distressed a little bit.
And now it has a new home!
I just need a new handle and it's done!
These are just a few other small projects.
$2 from D.I.
Light spray-paint.
Phil's mom gave me this adorable ceramic pot!
Made it speckled-stone!

My motto: save money, be creative, make my house cute.

Ugh...April Fool's. I'm trying to stay on my guard, but let me just say I HATE APRIL FOOL'S DAY.
The whole purpose and reason behind it just kills me.
No, I'm not gullible. I think I'm pretty logical and can figure out what's true and what's sarcastic or just a lie.
But I just HATE pranks.
I'm so glad Phil isn't a prank guru.
They just don't make sense.
They don't make people happy.
They don't make life easier.
They don't make my house cleaner.
Just not a good idea.
I just don't get the point.
Sorry for being a party pooper.
