It's been a bit crazy around here lately. For one thing, no one told me that Grandma's to be also get a strange urge to nest. I was reading to my daughter the other night about some unusual signs of impending labor. Well after she got exasperated with me, having learned it all in birthing class, I decided to continue to reading to myself. Often the Mom to be will get an overwhelming urge to nest.
Well this Grandma to be is having that same urge.
So I got busy and made a little Autumn centerpiece for the dining room table.
And an arrangement for the front porch. I got this sweet little basket for only a buck at a garage sale this summer. I picked the cattails and the foliage I had on hand.
And my biggest dose of nesting is coming from this room. This is my daughter's old room and hubby and I are giving it a complete make-over. We are even re-doing her 20 year old crib. We have just a wee bit more to go.....
I used the cute little basket that Gloria sent me for my table vignette.
On the bottom shelf I added this cute little bird box. I am hoping to show the room soon, just a few more projects to go.
I am joining the lovely Marty for Tabletop Tuesday, be sure to check it out!
My daughter is 15 days away from her due date. The wait is driving me crazy! She calls me several times a day with strange pains, usually little cramps but then they go away.
I think I'm starting to have some labor pains myself! lol.
Have a great week !
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
