a big thank you

Thank you for the most wonderful comments on the last post; I had so much fun reading them all!! There is never anything but friendliness from all of you who visit, and I will never cease to appreciate that.

Here's a little bit of what I've been doing when not out in the gardens weeding.

...'Owls' by Kate Davies and hoping to have it finished before the snow flies. I'm using 2 strands of Lion Brand wool::color Natures Brown purchased at Joann Fabrics with 40% off coupons.

baking~ ...Zucchini bread courtesy of Paula Deen, a perfect way to use up those zucchini ~ it's excellent and going fast!

Reading ~
...found this at a great price, used, online ~ a short but very sweet book.

projects ~

...this yard sale folding table, only $2.50 and transformed with some paint...

Behr's Light French Gray eggshell finish.

And no, the whole floor is not finished yet {did we really think it would be done by July?!} as there's waaay too much outdoor work right now--I will be so glad when it is finally finished!!!


  1. l love all your projects..such a sense of accomplishment when something is done!
    I'm going to go and check out what it is that you are knitting..
    Zuchhini delicious! So far this year I haven't found anybody who is giving away zuchhini.
    I love that folding looks beautiful painted white!
    I come to your blog for inspiration and I don't go away disappointed..thanks:)

  2. Oops..I should spell it'zucchini'..there that is better:)

    Oh we have missed you. Everyday I check for a new post!

    I'm off to try the zuchini bread. I love your blog by the way. So nice and comforting!


  4. Your Table makeover looks great! and I love that knit! If I could commit to knitting something of that Scale I'd want to try this.

  5. Your projects look fabulous! I'm especially fond of the yard sale find table! Who'da thought it would transform so nicely!

  6. I should accomplish so much!
    I like the color you're knitting with.

  7. Debbie, congratulations on being included in the blog bliss book. Your blog was one of the first I visited and I even won a beautiful peg apron in one of your give-aways.

    Your blog is a peaceful and friendly place to visit, keep up the great work. Thank you.

  8. I love the pattern and the color. I've started an afghan in a Country blue that I want to have done by the time cooler weather arrives.
    The table is lovely in that color. I really do like gray. It is such a peaceful, soothing sort of color.
    Thank you for another lovely visit.

  9. So good to hear all is well, if busy, up there. Love the knitting! And zuchini bread and everything, you are always and inspiration!

  10. Wow, I love OWLS! I can't wait to see yours finished! I can' really wear sweaters here much, but if I did, I'd put that one on my to do list. Your table turned out really great too. I like that it's not white white.

  11. The floors are looking wonderful!

    Oh yes, but the floor looks so great so far! Looks so pretty with the new folding table and the red & white striped bowl. I like the footstool too - a thrifted find recovered?

  13. I love your white floor.....and the table looks great there! (But I wouldn't want to keep a white floor clean with a husband, two teenagers, a puppy, and two cats!)

  14. I think that sweater is just awesome. I can't wait to see it when it's finished. Really great projects!! I love the cover of that little book. It makes me want to go out and found it right away.


  15. Wow the floor looks absolutely fabulous. New visitor here - just added you to my faves!

  16. Deb, I love your posts. Your home looks so lovely, very neat and tidy! How do you keep everything looking so nice? I really enjoy your blog!
    Thank you so much

  17. Wonderful projects!!!

    Glad to see a post..I have been waiting and waiting impatiently as I just LOVE your blog. :)

  18. The owl sweater is a wonderfully ambitious project. I look forward to seeing it when it is finished. I have bedroom dressers to paint and have been seeing many spray painted furniture pieces on various blogs. Your tray looks so perfect so I’m wondering if it was brush painted or spray-painted.

  19. I love your post Deb! Your knitting is so beautiful :) I can't wait to see the finished project :) Hmmm, Zucchini Bread! The book looks interesting :)

    Have a blessed day!


  20. We love all the same things. I LOVE that book and am hoping to knit some owls. I am going to do a shawl but maybe I can do the owls next. Clarice
