A few finished items.

Warning proud mother alert!

I don't know about you,
but I am exhausted.
Two gruelling days of school sports.
Juniors on Tuesday,
Seniors today.
I am proud to say I didn't miss a single event and my children behaved impeccably and tried their very best with excellent results.
Ok, enough with the self congratulations.

Yesterday I showed a few projects that were "on the go."

Today is the big Ta da!

Firstly the magazine holder.

Everything looks better with an Adirondack chair.

And pretty wrapped presents.

Then the frame.

In progress.


I inserted some scrapbooking paper and a little tin picture I found at 

Last, but not least. 
I slapped some whitey goodness on this little birdhouse shape.

And, Miss B and I cut and pasted 
a little birdie, it sits on her book shelf.

That's 3 projects down.
 Only 49 thousand 9 hundred and 97 to go!

  3. YAY! I love to see finished projects! They all look amazing! The magazine holder is beautiful with those gorgeously wrapped gifts! What a sweet little birdie on the bird house shape too... I am trying to figure out how I could make one as I am writing.... and I adore that frame as well! (Congrats to your kids!) x

  4. Tiff, the birdhouse thingy originally started as a clock face. Mr M used to make them out of old fence pailings. I scavenged a few out the the shed and had a little bit of fun with the white paint.

  5. Ah, Deb, you are an inspiration. Brilliant work. And love your efficiency. J x
