you all are looking forward to a wonderful weekend. At the home place, we are looking forward to a beautiful, warm, Saturday at home. It will be the first Saturday we have been home in 3 weeks. If you don't follow Holly's blog, then you might not know that Mr. P. is building Darbee Rae a playhouse. It is huge. He has been up there on the weekend's and since the time change in the afternoon's last week working. We are so excited and can't wait to see it finished and all painted and decorated. Darbee Rae has her own ideas on the colors. Pink paint has already been purchased for the outside. Inside she wants Zebra print, pink,black, lime green. Here are a few pictures of the progress.
Mr P still has to do the little porch and hang the door. Soon he will be finished.
Since Mr. P. has been busy making the other two girls in his life happy working on the playhouse, my list has gotten pushed to the side for awhile. But that's okay. He is almost at the end of the list and that's a good thing, as it is time to start working for the fall craft show. Yes, I know it is just March, but with his job and only working on the show items in the evenings, it takes a while to get everything built. Plus this year he has added a one day show in April to his list. I won't be entering my goodies in this show. This cabinet was purchased at a thrift store by Holly. When it wouldn't fit where she wanted it, she passed it on to me. You have seen it in pictures. It sat at the end of my little island in the kitchen. It was painted an ugly green.
It is a lot darker than in the picture. He painted it red over black. Love it now, and he made me this to go above it,
Loved the way it turned out.
This week I received a wonderful little bag in the mail. Have you ever heard of In A Pikle bags? I have been wanting one for a long time. Holly and I both for that matter. Well, she ordered hers and when it came, I had to order me one too. You can find them here. http://inapikle.com. Here is a picture of mine. They are wonderful. They come with a starter kit and I did order extra bags. They snap in and it is amazing all you can get in one bag. It did away with 2 zippered bags I had in my purse.
All of these items came with the bag and are in the zippered pouches, plus I have added my own personal items. I still have bags left to fill.
