I've Been Busy

I took yesterday off from working on my ten tasks in ten days. The weather was dreary and I was tired. Part of my problem was that I was not feeling well and I hurt my foot. Piece of advice...when your foot is asleep, give it some time before walking on it or you will pay the price. Ouch!

My ten tasks:

1. Clean out the garden - done

2. Research and plant Russian Sage - done

3. Paint something aqua - done

Brown scuffed up, 25 cent bird transformed...

4. Open my Etsy Shop - Shop at Lakewood is open and will soon have listings

5. Box up some clutter and take to Goodwill - done

6. Do new slipcovers on wicker chairs - done

Took slipcovers won from an auction and redid two chairs.
Cost was less than $1.

7. Rearrange the living room furniture - scheduled this weekend since I hurt my foot

8. Give my lamp a new life - done

Yard sale lamp for $1 redid with materials on hand.

9. Redo my little stool - done

This little vintage stool was with a lot purchased at an auction. I used materials on hand and the total cost came under $1.00 including the price of the stool.

10. Make 15 wreaths for seasonal sales - done

Okay, I think I just might need another day off!

Please go, have some fun and check out what everyone else is up to...
Transformation Thursday
I love vintage, I love thrifty, and I love transformations!

Living it up at Lakewood,

I'm late, as usual, but no less admiring of all the transformations!! I especially love the little stool, with its new purpose and new garb. Nice.

OMG, Cindy, your 10 tasks in 10 days made me TIRED just reading it!! Holy cow, you are on a roll!!! Thanks for visiting and yes - I agree about needing more light now that it's getting dark earlier... I long for the June evenings when it didn't get dark until 9pm... (sigh....) ... Okay, I seriously need to put some thought into 10 tasks in 10 days myself!... Donna
