Hello my sweet blogging friends.It is my hope that you all are in good health and spirits.It has turned back to winter here in Central Kentucky.We had a week of wonderful temperatures that could have only been better if we had a bit less rain.The rain was a blessing too and I surely don't mean to sound as if I am complaining about it.
Hubby has gone back to work after being home all last week.He is the reason I am so behind on the goings on of my fellow blogging buddies.It seemed as if every time I sat down to read or do a post he was needing something,couldn't find something or it was something completely off the wall.LOL! Yep, now that is a complaint.LOL! Love the man dearly but after repeatedly telling him that if he'd only return things to their right spot he could find it,I have decided he will never change.I am so grateful that he was able to return to work and hopefully this will be the end to him being laid off for a while.
This morning seemed like a good time to share the wonderful goodies that I received from my hubby for Christmas.With the warm temperatures last week I was finally able to get a finishing coat on one of my gifts.
Here is a pic of the gift when I unwrapped it..
Hubby made this for me and I was so surprised when I opened it.
I finished it with two colors of stain and a final coat using wax.
He also gave me a wonderful small rocker.I just love and wish it could tell talk because I am sure there would be lots of wonderful stories it could share.
That is a metal rod that is between the wood spindles.
The seat has been split but repaired with an old board underneath .
Notice the metal brackets that were used to fasten the arms to the back.Even though it looks dusty and dirty I have thoroughly cleaned it.LOL! Just a lot of great patina in my opinion.
I am off to check some blogs and clean the house.Be sure to check back in a couple of days as I have some finished projects to share.Be well and safe my friends! Blessings,Jen
