Busy Again

I've got tons of projects in the works:I saw the cutest little girl skirt over at Ruffles & Stuff. She used an old pair of her daughter's tights. But since I don't have a daughter or "old tights" , I improvised at Walmart with a little pair of sparkly heart pants.

I found this HUGE picture at Goodwill. The boys thought I got us a painting from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! I don't know which is scarier...that it actually does look like that farm...or that my 3 young boys know that movie! (Jamie loved that movie as a wee one..he called it the Cowboy Movie. One day he came limping up to me, holding his leg, "Mommmm, I think I need some little mints"....OK?'s a scene from the movie where the brother says he needs some liniment! Only in my house!)
Here's a close up of the frame..pretty cool huh?!?

As much as it will pain me, I'm priming over the picture, painting the frame cream and distressing it...and then it's gonna get a good ol' coat of chalkboard paint.

Hey lady, love the chalkboard idea. That could be something to make for when the grands come over. I can't get the link to work for Ruffles and Stuff though, can you email me the link? Send ti to my home email not Facebook as I'm fasting Facebook. Not sure how wise that decision was but only a few more days now. ;)
