So a long time ago, my deary ol husband convinced me to get a big 32" tv to use as a computer screen. Well, when we did that we realized we needed a new entertainment center/computer desk. I had a complete vision in my head of what I wanted, and so I told Clay to build it. Now, Clay isn't the handiest of men. Not to say he's not handy just not really like....one of those guys that LOVES to go out and build something. Ya know? Not too much experience. WELL- I completely designed this desk and gave him the "blue prints" and he, with his dad, interpreted my sloppy design skills and built me an amazing piece of furniture!
He first built this.
Then we painted it and brought it into our house and it looked like THIS for a loooong time.
And now finally it looks like THIS! What I'd been imagining all along:)
We've had it for a couple months, but he just put the molding up top this weekend. I told him from the beginning- you have to put the molding on before I take pictures! So finally he did it and it totally completed it. We had a deal that if he could get the tv I could get baskets. HA! Quite the bad deal huh? Baskets aren't nearly the same price tag...hahaha. But I have to admit- this tv for computer deal is AWESOME! I really love it.
I still have some things to do with it though. The bottom shelves need some serious TLC...I think I'm gonna make fabric baskets or something cause that stuff is just TACKY!
The other day I made myself this apron.
I love it! If you look closely, it says- "I promise to keep the trees healthy and beautiful". It reminds me of my roots...you know...where I come from:) (Hippyville, Oregon) The thing is I have made lots of aprons as gifts...but never for myself. I made one once a LONG time ago for myself that was NOT quality made cause I didn't have much sewing experience. So it's basically in shambles. This one is just precious...to me anyway!
Yesterday I made more bread than I ever have. I made a batch big enough for 4 WHOLE LOVES! Yikes! My bosch was like...overflowing! I only have 3 bread pans so I decided to make one of the loaves into scones! Got the inspiration from my dear sister Lizzie. I rolled them in cinnamon sugar and if you're wondering if that's considered a treat, it's not:) Whole wheat cinnamon scones? Yeah right! But honestly, my tummy could only handle like two of them! So I really didn't eat much. But we shared with Clay's family today and they were a big hit! I didn't think they would be just cause...you know- most people aren't the biggest fan of whole wheat treats. But I gotta say, they were tasty!
I've been wanting to wait until the weather's nice to take a pic of our pretty bushes in our backyard...but I've given up hope on any nice weather in the future. Aren't they nice though?
Dante has started to just lay down outside....it's pretty cute.
I made chicken fajitas the other night. They were pretty tasty as well.
Well, I've got lotsa projects coming up...so I'll be busy busy! I'll probably have pics of the chair up tomorrow....so I'm pretty excited about that! Till next time:)
