I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! This year was very special for us. We had a new baby in the family and for the first time in 4 years, my son and his wife were able to be with us at Christmas.
It made for a very special time!
Looking back on old blog posts is like a mini time-capsule! So with that in mind, I am joining Rhoda of Southern Hospitality for her Top Ten Projects of 2010 and Kim @ Savvy Southern Style for Show me your Best of 2010. Some were my projects, some were my talented husband's and some were ours together!
I loved how it turned out and it was so inexpensive to create! I just cut the fabric to fit the cardboard and slid it in. My hubby had cut the cardboard so that it would fit nice and snug and we stretched the fabric and stapled! Easy, Peasy!
Of course a little tablescaping was in order!
Colorful and whimsical, just how I like them!
I was so proud of him and I love how it turned out!!!
With that in mind, it was time for me to get busy! Katie needed a dresser for her baby girl to be!
I decided we would just use her old childhood dresser instead of spending a lot of money on something that really wasn't what we wanted.
Instead of spending money on new drawer handles I simply primed and painted the old ones!
And daughter loves it!!!
I was so proud to have these on my dining room table and plan on planting more of these babies in 2011.
One of our bigger projects was redoing this bedroom that had been my daughters. I wanted it light and airy and a place for baby too.
And it had to be on a very tight budget. The room had been painted a very dark color and I just didn't think it fit. So we painted using a color called spa, wallpapered with look alike wainscoting wallpaper for a fraction of the cost. I bought a new spread and we re-did my daughter's 20 year old crib. Plus a few new accessories and we completed this room for only $115.00!
Checking out 8 month old Emalee's dress! They were both so interested in each other's dress, it was so cute!
Little Addison will be 3 months old on the 3rd of January and the really big news is that come next July, she will have a little cousin!
My son Joshua and his wife Dawn are expecting their first baby!
And that will make me a Grandma again!
Thanks for coming by everyone and please come back on the 1st as I am having a blog-a-versary!!!
