I could have stayed in the French Provence
 and not have come back to about you? 

Thank you to all who came along...I hope you enjoyed our little virtual vacation. I am back to my life...

Not that I have a bad one...

  I am very grateful for my blessings and the life I live.

The reality I am talking about...


too many still unfinished and making my life chaotic!

  Everyday a little closer to having our lives back to the so called "normal".

I thought I would share just a few of the
 many projects I am currently working on...

As you can see lot's of  things still a work in progress...
 hopefully though,  I will have some of these finished to show next week.

I have been unpacking lots of boxes and
 now have to find a place for everything.

Here is the dresser after I stained the top...this wood is gorgeous!

It has a mirror with a frame that goes on top of it.

 At first I had decided to use the mirror elsewhere,
 but since have changed my mind...

Here are all the pieces that go to the frame for the mirror.
 I have stripped the old paint and stain and will have to
 put it back together and then finish painting it.

I am in love with the detailed pretty!

This is the base to our kitchen table that is getting painted.
 It's primed and now needs to be sprayed with the paint color.

Next post I will be showing what I added to my lampshade's.

A peek at some new designs I have been working on for my Etsy...
Light grey dupioni silk, glass beads and honeycomb smocking...

A pretty soft blue-grey linen and fabric butterflies...

As you can see many things to still finish...
I need more time, energy and hands to get it all done! :)

As my husband always says to me...

"How do you eat an elephant?"
(my question,"Why would I want to?!")
his reply..."One bite at a time". ;)

I hope to visit  soon and catch up on all I have missed...

I think of you all often. Thank you for your friendships and support!

I will be lost in projects and trying to get my life back to some kind of "normal"!

Have a great weekend!!
