Be Back Shortly

Sorry for my silence last couple of weeks.  Within a day of each other my Chihuahua Daschund mix puppy was hit by a van ~ he's home (4 days in the hospital) on massive antibiotics and pain reliever, but needs 3 times a week bandage changes at the vet The VERY next day, my youngest Daughter dislocated her patella (knee cap) Ambulance ride to the ER, knee cap returned to right spot but she's on crutches with a brace from hip to ankle for 6 to 8 weeks.

So, I'm nursing my babies back to health . . .I'll be back soon, I promise!  I'll still drop in from time to time, checking out all the amazing inspiration in Blog Land.

As Always

What Would You Do???

Look what I found!!  About a month ago, I was at a meeting, we had a better than expected turn out so I went into the storage area to get chairs.  Sitting alone in a corner was this beauty! Minus the Cat ~ who will not get off!  I was giddy, I looked it all over (quickly) I was supposed to be getting chairs, and resolved to call the Facility Manager and ask if they were throwing him out.  I decided it has to be a "guy" he weighs a ton and is SOLID wood.

Next morning I promptly called to speak with the Manager - let's condense the next month to phone calls about every other day, leaving messages, you get the idea. 

Well, last night was the meeting again, in the middle of the meeting I get a note from the Building Manager!  I can HAVE the cubbies, they were throwing them out, but if I want the old junkie thing I can have it.  Meeting adjourned!!  (Not really) but 2 long hours later I convinced two gentlemen to load him into my truck and I went straight home.  My husband was not so thrilled with my find.  I believe his exact words were "you've got to be kidding me??!!" NOPE!!  Thank you Ms Funky Junk, I see the beauty in this ole guy!

What would you do with him??  The possibilities are endless and swirling in my head.  In my closet for shoes, NO!!! I will not hide the yummi~ness in the closet.  In the pantry for staples???  Hmmmmm . . . Don't you love all my "helpers"  I literally was screaming at the Shepherd to "sit and stay" so I could take pictures, they love the flash!

Maybe I'll put him under here for more storage in the Kitchen
He will need a little TLC, a really good cleaning out and washing; then some sanding and painting; since his previous life was spent as a shoe rack in a bowling alley.

What would you do with him???  I'm open to suggestions!

And, as always . . . thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  I cherish the company!

Does Anyone Remember . . .

A week or so ago I stumbled across a wonderful blog -- a couple redoing an old barn, making it their "new" home.  I LOVED their pine floors and wanted to show them to my DH, but I can't remember the blog name, and like a dummy I didn't bookmark the page.  I do remember the Bloggess called her DH "The Cowboy" . . . can you help?  I would really appreciate it and then I might be able to "show" my DH what our floors could look like, he's having trouble visualizing stained pine, thinks it would be too soft ~ with critters and kids.

Anyway, if anyone knows, please drop me comment or an e-mail.

Thank you so very much!

And . . . as always,

I love having you stop by for a visit.
