What I've Been Up To

We have been really busy lately trying to get the house, yard and garden ready for summer. We have been mowing for about a month longer than usual by now.  It got warm early this year.  We have already picked cherries, and the blackberries are in full bloom.

We took a short vacation down to Lake Cumberland and had a really good time.  We took a ride on the Big South Fork Scenic Railroad.  It is an older train that goes through an old coal mining town that has been restored and then stops in another one that is more like a museum.

We did some antiquing and bought a couple of pieces because the prices there were very reasonable.  We bought a big oak china cabinet that we put in the kitchen and a maple corner cabinet that went in the living room.  I am in love with both pieces.  Here is the picture of the oak cabinet.

I love the primitive look and have been redoing some things.  Here is a candelabra that I redid.



This was a yard sale find a couple of years ago ($1.00) and I couldn't decide what to do with it until I came across a website that told me how to prim it up.  I really enjoyed doing it.

Make sure you stay tuned as I will be holding another give away soon!
