Another Birthday!!!


Happy Friday!!
We are soon upon the weekend and I will be working on my creative space again. It is coming along very nice and my excitement builds with each project. Hopefully I can show you my finished rug in a few days. Also I finished stripping a table that was in the basement left by the previous owner. I can't decide upon a paint color. Should I just sand it down to bare wood and leave unfinished?? Maybe some suggestions?


Meanwhile there is another January child of mine that I want to wish a Happy Birthday!

Chad is 26!
He is a guy so I know he won't mind me sharing his age...LOL!


This is a recent picture of us on vacation. I sure do miss this young man :(  We definitely had our challenges back in the day... getting through elementary and middle school but once he entered high school things changed for the better and I do say he has turned out to be a very outstanding and responsible adult. Chad is a jack of all trades...plumbing, electrical, carpentry, mechanical, you name it he can do it. He is now living and working in North Florida on the emerald coast as an electronics technician.
He loves it there (what's not to love) but hopefully misses his mama :) Thanks for stopping by today and I will be back soon with some pictures of my basement creative space.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Karen

  7. I LOVE that table! It is so pretty and will be perfect in a craft room. I have been reading back over your last few posts and can't wait to see your room finished My craft room is quite small too but it is my happy place. Your painted rug looks awesome! You don't look old enough to have a 26 year old child! Your kids are so handsome/pretty! I have a 26 year old daughter myself. She is the one who lives in Prague. I also have a 20 year old son. :) Hope you have a lovely week!

    Hugs, Vicky

    1. Thanks Vicky. The table was left behind by the previous owner and I am pretty sure its from the 1950s. It will serve nicely for my sewing machine. We have two kids the same age :) they are such a blessing. Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Happy Birthday to your son!

    I have no idea what paint color to use on the table, but whatever it is, I'm sure it'll be great and you'll get a lot of use out of it :)
