Careful what you wish for

After worrying about my talents wearing thin, I am getting lots of chances to work on them. It always seems to come in waves. Here are a few of the things I've been doing. First I've started refinishing a high chair for my adorable nephew. It is taking quite awhile because it has been so humid here the paint is not drying very fast. I have sanded, primed. painted, and painted again. I just need to finish up with the sanding. Lincoln Rosco Ryan

Second, I am still searching for a pot for my living room branch. I havn't found the right one yet( I'm being very picky ).

Third, I have an old metal pale I'm painting for Joyce ( Chris's sister ). I'll post when done.

And last, I ended up making some baby shower invitations last night. I was working with mass quantities(100 ) so I tried to keep them simple. I love doing all of these things, I just need to learn to space them all out a little!

I love that you are posting your projects. I no longer need to subscribe to any home magazines. Just keep your ideas coming and that will be enough to inspire me. yesterday I saw an old high chair in the barnasium on mt. tom. I thought of you. If you need another I can probably confiscate it!

I love your stuff. But, what I really love is your husband posting to your blog. David wouldn't even think to read mine. This will be addressed further in my comment on your next post. I really should have read these in order, not backwards.
