Life is Just A Bowl of Cherries and Robinson Crusoe

Well, what have I been doing? I did some things for farmer's market last week, but there was not really anything new to show you. I painted another table like the black one since it sold right away. I am loving doing the design and want to try it other ways--expanded and in other colors. Blue and brown will be my next one. I spent a lot of last week working on a special order and I will post pictures when I am done. I also was working on a desk turned kitchen island. Friday night I decided I was rushing it and needed to think a few logistics out with it, so I put it on hold. I am going to try to finish it this week and will post pictures. Here is a before picture:

We went to the circus yesterday. My daughter has never been to one that she remembers. I had just bought the family movie called First of May--it is a touching story set at the circus. Tessa commented that she had never been to a circus and two days later circus tickets arrived in the mail. I must admit, elephants are still exciting to me and I love the trapeze act. I would love to swing on that thing!

I bought some fresh local cherries at the Farmer's Market. MMM--they were so good and gone within hours.

On another note, I would like to plug the new Robinson Crusoe show that will be out on NBC this fall. The lead actor, Philip Winchester is a former student and his family are friends of ours. He is a sweet boy, and a Christian who is trying to do the whole Hollywood thing God's way (which is not an easy task). You may have seen him in Fly Boys and he just finished touring for a year with the Royal Shakespeare Academy. Check out the trailer and watch it this fall! Sorry any younger single girls, he does have a girlfriend, another former student and friend of mine. We are crossing our fingers for an engagement soon!

Off to paint a plastic Adirondack chair for someone. Cross your fingers that it turns out!

  1. Hello!

    Just wanted to say that I LOVE your blog. I am a "junker" in Iowa. I do this on the side when I have time(I am a full-time Mommy). I am interested in knowing how you do the candle wax paint method. It is so cool, but I just can't figure out what you mean. If you are willing to share, I would love to know.

    Happy Junking!



Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
