|A friend of mine (I'll call her Jessie), asked me if I would paint up this tv stand that she had inherited. It was a lovely stand, but a little too dark for her taste, so paint it up I did!|
|I dragged her outside for her photoshoot. (She's on wheels!) I grabbed some fall decor from the basement (that never made it out this year) and decorated her up.|
|See this little runner? I made this from a little ziploc baggie of already cut triangles that I picked up from Goodwill, a few years ago. I think it looks autumnal. (I love that word!)|
|I have a notion to just set some bowls of candy out there for the handful of Halloweeners I get. That way they won't need to come into my GROSS basement!|
Have a great Saturday evening!

|I've been buying a rottweiler calendar for my daughter for Christmas for many years.|
Lots of sweet pictures of sweet dogs. But-dogs we did not know, none the less.
|I made and ordered two Rocco the Rottie calendars from Artscow today. One for my girl for Christmas, and one to keep here.|
Go here if you want to have a look see.
PS-That font is called 'GoodDog', and I thought it was perfect!

|This, my friends, is my new, old (and I mean old!) 1972 Swiss Colony (hey-I thought that was a cheese and candy mail order company!) camper.|
|My mom had told me that my uncle and aunt were trying to sell this camper quite cheap and that there were no takers yet. She told me it was in good working order and that they had just put in a new air conditioner and hot water tank.|
|I love-before and afters, something from nothings, being resourceful...you get the idea. :)|
|Sooooo-when my happy camper gets here (to my house) (my dad needs to do something to his truck-add an electric brake system? before he hauls it here) I'm going to start working on a little transformation.|
|I'll be using lots of cleaner, primer, paint, fabric, and whatever else I can find around here. And lots of Goodwill finds-I'm sure!|
|What I won't be using is a lot of money!|
|I am determined to make this little camper homey, warm, easy on the eyes, and good smelling! A place that makes you want to come in, sit down, have a cup o' tea and stay a while.|
Maybe next year-happy camper will be sitting at a camp ground!
|Until then, do you want to come along for the ride???|
Ohhh-this is gonna make some good blog fodder, I think!
PS-Some of my house pics are on Etsy's blog The Storque today. Very exciting for little ol' me!

|I didn't lose my mojo-I made three little blue cookbooks. I may make one more.|
|It's a very rustic and very simple little book.|
|And I think Mom will likey. I mean, why wouldn't she like a scrapbook of her grandkids???|

|I saw Rocco kissing.....|
|Hmmmmm-it doesn't seem that Rocco's too impressed with Santa Claus. |
I found this santa at a thrift store, dirt cheap. This is going to my friend, Dawnie. She collects the smaller, old fashioned blow mold santas and they look absolutely adorable lit up throughout her home. Although this santa is neither small nor old fashioned-she said she'd take him in.
PS-Speaking of Santa if you want to see what I got my sister, Kim, for her birthday/Christmas-go here.

|And tada! An heirloom cookbook. Now, hopefully I don't lose my mojo, and make more so I can give them to certain family members as gifts.|

|I decided that instead of stopping for Chinese tonight, I'd actually make something to take to Ladies Missionary. My mom and my aunt used to make these a lot around Christmas time. They are sooooo good!|

|Okay-on to the beautiful day! Here's my pup, Rocco. Isn't he a gorgeous one? I love how his front legs are crossed and his shadow!|
|I found a feather out in the yard-I thought it would make cute fall decor.|
|The zinnias are almost all dead-but there were still a few-so I cut them and brought them in.|
|This wheat is everywhere and I think it's quite beautiful!|
|Hey-it pays to go outside once in a while! I think I need to do it more often.|
I hope it's a beautiful day where you are too! :)
