Good Monday morning gals! Oh yes, I have a day off - HOORAY!!! What a busy weekend this has been though. Yesterday I had a wedding shower for my step-son's bride, Val, and then on to Abbey's birthday party. It was all fun though.
The contractors have started on our new "home" and that's also exciting, but I have SOOO much to do before we are ready to move. We started taking pictures of each step, so someday I'll share with you.
I have enjoyed all of the texture pictures that you have all put on the blog, so I decided to get the camera out this morning and get on the bandwagon. There's lots, hope you don't get bored, but I knew today would be my only day this week to do this. Get ready for lots of pictures! LOVE old shoes and socks!
Old rusty bucket and sampler.

Big old sampler.

Love the old car clock.
BIG piece of homespun.
And, or course, wooden bowls.

Scrabble letters.
Chippy old split door.
Sweet paper mache lamb.

More old socks.

Towel rack. Soap saver.
Sweet Annie wreath.
Bathroom faucet.
Well ladies, that's it for my textures. You're all right, you could take 100's of pictures around your home. There are so many things I skipped, but...
Time to move on to painting and baking dolls, picking up some furniture for the shop, and HOPEFULLY going to look at more cars. (By the way, I think I've decided on a PT Cruiser - at least the back seats fold down.) Hope you have a restful Monday and get lots of fun things accomplished.
Until next time...

  6. Great textures Dawn!....I'm late at reading all the blogs because yesterday I was tied up taking my oldest son to the doctor and filling prescriptions and all that fun stuff cuz on Sunday he took a bad fall jumping a motor scooter off a dirt hill so I wanted to make sure he got a chest xray....he was in so much pain and one side of his face is all scraped up....he never injured himself as a little boy and I told him that now, at 24 and married, isn't the time to start!....I just called him this morning and he's feeling better today thank goodness!
