Rustic Cement Table

Okay, this is one of those projects I started a very long time ago, finished a somewhat-long time ago, and just never got around to blogging about until now.   Which, let’s face it, is how most of my posts are going to go this summer.  There are several reasons for this particular delay, mostly annoying little obstacles (like staining obstacles, and cement obstacles, and...

And don’t get me wrong, the girl’s husband was very kind, and he did help.  Often.

Christmas Tablescape

Well, you can tell that I am still a newbie blogger, because I could not, for the life of me, get my act together to blog about my Christmas decor before the actual holiday itself.  Blame it on being a full-time working mother, or the fact that I crammed too much into one already-busy month, or that I was still happily decorating up until...
