Oh man! I cant believe how TINY he is in these pics!
I miss those days when he napped all day!!!! BIG TIME... however I quite enjoy sleeping through the night now!

My little boy is 10 months old today!!!!
I can hardly believe it....
he is into EVERYTHING.
Yesterday he got into my house plants 3 times... dirt in his mouth, on the floor, on his hands!
It makes me wonder if a little girl would be like this ??
His favorite book is "Pat the Bunny" and he sits and "reads" it by himself often... staring at each page and turnin to the next... its so cute. He says "Da Da" and "All done!"... but it sounds more like "aaahhh duh!". He loves grahm crackers and gold fishes and banana cereal. His top 2 teeth are pushing on through! He is standing on his own... and every now and then will try to take a step! Oh Lordy help us all! :)

My lil chenille snowmen tucked inside a old graniteware bowl I found on our property in an old chicken coup.
The cupboard was a total SAVE... i bought it for 100$ at a antique store.... but it was in BAD shape... I tried to strip it years ago with NO luck and painted it a country blue (it was going into a americana room in my apt at the time). My brother and father BEGGED me to throw it out... as they got SICK of hauling this monster everytime i moved! (moved 6 times in 7 years! haha) and now I finally painted it Black and repainted the beadboard and aged it all.... the contents on the shelves are not to my liking yet.... but I was just too anxious to put something in there! :)
Had to post this picture to show the HIDEOUS bunny bread box that now is my CHRISTMAS box
Oh and the peg rack and sconces turned out to be really cute redos as well

I have made a quilt for about every season except CHRISTmas for this ladder in my living room... but I found this unfinished flannel folk art one... and it had some red and green in it.... so finished or not... its going up! :) (Ill get to it SOMEDAY! )

xmas box

This has gotta be one of my favorite redo projects EVER.... it was a 2 dollar bread box with the ugliest bunnies painted on it... I just sanded , painted and distressed and stained it.... and now I stuff it full for the seasons.
The Lil gingerbread man was a recipe I tried out with nothing but spices and applesauce and he smells JUST LIKE CHRISTMAS!
I chopped up one of our pine trees for the greenery! I forgot how POKEY those things are! But it was worth it I think.
