Today I began recovering my dining room chairs. The above picture is the before shot. The below picture is the after. I am pretty proud of myself, but will tell you I don't want to do this for a living.
My old curtains did not match my new seats in the dining room so we replaced the curtains we had been using with new sheers. My dining room looks amazing and I am so tickled with the outcome.

We went to a bar-be-que today....actually two of them. I made this diabetic friendly red, white, and blueberry trifle. There was absolutely none left. If you want the recipe then click here. I made this one with strawberries and blueberries....you could substitute raspberries for the strawberries.

My mom collected All God's Children figurines and as long as I can remember they have been in boxes in her closet. I moved them from Kellyton to Rock Mills where they have stayed in boxes. I bought the curio at a sale and had some extra glass shelves cut and finally got down to displaying the little people. In my den we have two walls with my dad's collection of Franklin Mint cars and now we have a collection for my mom. She originally started this collection with three figures who were named Emma (her mom's name), Toby and Willie (her brother's name). These are made by Mrs. Martha in Alabama and no longer produced I believe. Many of the pieces had been retired long before that. After we got this set it was time to cook. We have dinner guests coming tonight.

We went to the church this morning and while Frank set up the sign I did the bulletins for Sunday. We tried to do it early so it would not be so hot. We were home before 9. Works for me!

A few weeks ago I bought a teapot chime. It was not finished but I wanted it so the lady at Snip "N" Stitch sold it to me and I planned to come home and finish it. I put it in the utility room and began gathering what I needed to finish it. Today I got out the beads, went to Frank's shop to drill a hole in the spoon that would drop from the spout and put it together. I could not wait to hang it. Saturday afernoon we went to Newnan, Ga to mess around and eat. I found another little pitcher at a local Goodwill and can't wait to make my next chime. These are fun to do. I may have found my artistic talent here. We will see. Well, that was my week. I enjoyed living it and I hope you enjoyed sharing it with me. See you next Sunday, have a great week, and stay safe. God Bless You Real Good!
