I have taken time to review my “be kind” motto for the year 🙂
And I do believe I have learned a lot about kindness and how many people are in need of it… take time to share a smile with a stranger… you never know when it could change a life!
Let me say… I do think I was already Kind… I just think I needed more kindness overall in my home last year and that was achieved! Yippee 🙂
My sewing room is coming along and I am working away at my hexi flowers…
I have done a bit more decorating and “moving in”… and got me a different chair that I LOVE!!!!
This chair was a craigslist find for $45 and it needed work and a new seat cushion and cover when I paid for it! lol My honey thought I was crazy then … but after a lot of elbow great and a new cushion (we found at a thrift store for $6.00 … 3″ green foam nice n dense too)…. and some final adjustments…
This Shaw Walker vintage industrial office chair is from the 1930’s and in mint condition would now be worth quite a bit but I could easily get $200 I think… not that it is for sale! lol But nice to know all that work made it worth more 🙂
Mail call brought something I won on a blog!
I had told her something snow globe related was coming for her that I had won on a blog… well LeeAnna… the sweet quilter who designed this and made it special for my daughter and who blogs HERE… sent this and we got it yesterday 🙂
But here is the best pic …
With my darling daughter in her room in front of her custom cabinet holder her snowglobe collection !!! How cool is that for a snowglobe gift for my daughter… from one quilter to another! LOVE THAT!
So stop by and visit LeeAnna and see what she is up to… the link above is for the blog post that talks about these adorable things 🙂 Thanks LeeAnna!
Meanwhile, my dd is now spread out in the hall for “best lighting” to work on a puzzle with a couple friends who came to help…it is my Christmas present delivered by New Years she says! lol
And Daisy has found an “inside spot” in the sewing room 😉
My honey is working on his side of the sewing room… but pics of that side will be slow as I must dress the window before pics! lol
Here is his work desk though 🙂
We bought a treadle sewing machine we thought was salvagable but on closer inspection was not… so my honey will repurpose the top and get the treadle head working… but the base he pressure washed and painted black. He will be repairing and reconditioning Singer Featherweights that we sell… Perfect!
Do you have a motto, try to do something new and different, eat a certain food, or have other New Years traditions? I would love for you to share with me 🙂
Until my next post…
