Goodies In The Mail

Hey everyone, I hope you all are
having a great week....It cooled off
some and then went back to the
mid 90's....

Well, I guess I better get on with
what I got on here to post about.
First of all, I was lucky enough to 
have won one of Cyndy's giveaways 
over at Crafty Stitchers! I won
this cute scarecrow, he is just
awesome! Cyndy does such great 
and I am happy to have one of  her
creations in my home! Thanks so 
much, Cyndy, I just love him!

I also received this cute little 
gingerbread guy from Dina of
The Country Primitive Shoppe,
she was giving away 5 ornies that
day and I was lucky enough to 
post a comment to receive one. I 
just love him, too! I decorate my 
kitchen with gingers for Christmas.

We are making head way on the
kitchen....We had to take a counter
top back, it had a flaw right down 
the middle of it, but we have it all
on, now.....just need to adjust and
hook down the last part.  We got the
kitchen sink back in, we went a 
week without one....I still have 
the lower doors and drawers to
do, yet.  I took a break, last week
from working on them and I 
haven't gotten back at it. I have
been trying to find the dining 
room table, it has been piled up
with all kinds of things from 
the kitchen. I have two boxes of
things, that I took off the table,
that are not going back into the
kitchen.....There was way too much
stuff on the counters.....I might 
post some of it on my selling blog.

I have been putting things back
on the counters and then changing
it to another place....Tweak, tweak, 
tweak.....I might get 
it where I like it all, soon....

This is going to be the 4th weekend
for working on the kitchen, plus
the 10 days on doors, knobs and the
hinges.....It will take another week
or more to do the doors, etc.....
I will post the pictures, after we
get it all done.....I need to make
curtains and do a couple other 
things for the kitchen, also....I 
swear that I am getting an arm 
like Popeye!  The muscle on my 
right arm is getting huge! I guess
it is from putting all the hinges 
back on....I did it all by hand, so 
I wouldn't scratch off the paint 
on the hinges....
Between the clogging
and working on the kitchen,
I am building lots of muscles!...
Better not mess with me...he he...

Well, I need to go back to work on
 the dining room and maybe mop,
the floor, too.....I think I will do my
outdoor decorating this weekend, 
since Saturday is October 1st.
I have enjoyed seeing what everyone
has been doing (that is when the 
internet has decided to work)....

You all have a great weekend!
