For Anna

Here is the sink we pulled out of mom and dads basement.  The sink is still beautiful but the base needs sanded and painted.  Actually we took it off of the base but that we still have both.  If this is what you are looking for call me.  She would like $150.  If you dont want it it is going to a local antique store that deals in that stuff--I am sure it will be more there :) LOL

Bread Anyone?

I started my baking early this morning....and I have extra bread...two loaves...they will be ready around one o'clock.
So the first two people that call can have the extra loaves. Except you...
because I will be bringing two loaves to moms in the morning :)
Why the extra energy? I cant figure it out either unless it is because I got a really cool knitting bag last night and I am stoked!
In fact now it is my inspiration to knit.

Soft focus...but such a funny story.....
Mine and Nates conversation yester day:
Nate: Look at me mom I am a mortician!
Me: A what?!
Nate: A mortician!
Me: What are you doing that makes you a mortician?
Nate: Magic tricks.

Changing Up My Mantel Art!

This has been over my mantel for about a year and a half in a 20x30.

Soon to be replaced by this!

Not the best composure-I know.
I should have found their other shoes-I know.
No one is looking at the camera-I know.
They are not behaving-duh!

But I love it.
And it is my life.
And I would never trade it.

I learned to make a new hat!

Okay...maybe it could have been pink and green and on a little girl....but Eli is just loving his little hat!  I got him a wool fisherman coat for winter and so this little navy elf hat is going to be the perfect addition.  Stand back everyone...remember a few years ago when I learned to make a baby blanket and so I made like every baby I knew a blanket?!  I feel a bunch of little hats coming on!  I am going to have to check out Luna natural fiber yarns at Blueball Mountain Spindleneedleworks Shop.

I am linking up to these blog parties!

Mom Cave Makeover Contest!

Susan from Between Naps On the Porch is hosting a Mom Cave blog party for her Metamorphosis Monday.  One lucky winner will get a $250 gift certificate to Home Goods to use on her MOM CAVE.  Plus three other women will win $50 gift certificates.  I could use either amount :)

Okay so shamefully I am going to show you my "Mom Cave".  This is an 82 square foot L-shaped walk-in closet off of a fourth bedroom that we are using for our schoolroom/playroom.
Presently I am trying to clean out the closet and store my scrap booking supplies

and our ever growing homeschooling supplies.

If I win I would love to get a chair for my desk,

and some pretty storage units like the ones here that I found on their site

and maybe these lovely birds to keep up with my ribbons

as well as some lovely girly storage!!

Pick me please!!!

***Hopefully I will be posting new pix of my remodeled cave soon!!
