Catch me if you can!

Hi Girls and you too, you Old Geezer  ;)  I just had to drop in  to say hello and let you know I'm still here and hope that all of you are well. It has indeed proven to be one very whirlwind of a month and I'm not done yet. I have much to share and am anxious to be able to do so, but kinda under time constraints for this week. Geez, are you as tired of hearing that as I am writing that.... just askin' 'cause it really is all good!
One thing I will take the time to show you so you can get a visual as to why I am so spotty in my postings lately. I have been working on a number of projects racing against our crazy weather and diving in and out of other obligations. But first a question: How do you make a cherry dining room table disappear?

Well if you are anything like me, you won't sell, won't even consider putting paint on such gorgeous wood and have no room in which to store or repurpose this beauty. Yet I REALLY wanted a white farmhouse style table. What to do??  So the answer is this:
Break out the power tools and make a facade to go over the cherry dining table!! Ta-dah!! yep, I did. And you are gonna see quite a few pictures with this new beauty in the background. I love it. Every time I see it, I have to smile. I had quite a few giggles with Mark when he got home from work that night after I did this. He had a hard time trying to figure out where our cherry table went ;)

One more thing, this is the week of Kentuckys' blow out yard sale weekend : The Roller Coaster! I so can not wait for this one!!! Yeah!!

   Ok, I'm outta here yet again. I'll try to slow down enough soon to do a fly by your roost to say hello this week. I know that a number of you are having the same busy life as I am so please know that I so appreciate your visits and each of you and truly can not wait to stop in your place to say hi. Take care Girls and Old Geezer.



  1. Ellen... look at you!! You go, Girl!! I love the table... absolutely love it. This year I have acquired a new appreciation for girls who rule power tools :) Love your chickens too, of course. Can't wait to hear what's shakin' - oh yes, but I can be patient :) Have fun on the Rollercoaster. We don't have anything like that around here. Maybe we should start one? Enjoy the remainder of the week! -Tammy

  2. Blimey O'Rielly! You really did that all on your own? I see a serious business venture ahead for you...hiding peoples furniture for them. Rock on Sista!!!!!!

  6. You are kidding me girl!!!! You made that table????? Oh. my. goodness. I consider myself adept at most things, but don't think I would attempt that on my own. Hubby would laugh at my stories too and at ME because my attempt would be!! BEAUTIFUL table and can't wait to see more of what you have up your sleeve.

  7. Wow, what a wonderful idea. You did a fabulous job, and I can't wait to see this table all dressed up for the holidays. Give yourself a great big pat on the earned it! I wish I was handy with power tools. The only tools I use are craft tools, and even those don't get much working out lately. ;)
