Restyled Sundays #59

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays!

I decided to wait today until everyone had time to spend with their families on Easter.
We are so blessed to have family to be with on this Holy Day.

Yesterday our family had a huge gathering at our house. We did the Easter Egg
hunt in the rain, then had brunch a lot's of fun and conversation followed.
Everyone was able to come, so it was great.
Today, we went to lunch at my parents senior living facility.
They had prime rib for all, but being a vegetarian, I chowed down on the
veggies and had a wonderful baked sweet potatoe. Yum, nothing better.

We had a great party last week, and I want to tell you the weatherman was
right on with the forecast. We got 9" of snow on Sunday morning, but it was
all gone by Friday. Yeah! I really hope that was the end of it.

Now I want to share my favorites from last week.

Lynda from Something Created Everyday went shopping and here is
one of my favorite thrifting finds in a long time. Can't you just picture
those jars with fresh flowers as a centerpiece?
Joy at A Vintage Green found this chair a a sale and it sure
didn't look like this. Check out her handy hubby's amazing makeover.

This little cabinet is such a unique shape and now it is
simply beautiful thanks to Creat Inspire
.And check out this amazing gun cabinet makeover
by once again, CreateInspire. Some serious talent here!
And, she has been very busy.

Now let's see what you've been up to this week.

Restyled Sundays #58

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays!

Well, I disappeared once again. But, this time we actually got our daughter moved
into her house. I have spent the last three weeks painting and lining shelves to get her
ready to move in. There is still alot to do, but at least she is in and I am able to spend
some time at home and get my house back together. I sure did love having her here,
but I am sure we are both glad to have our own spaces again.

Last time I posted, we had been trying to survive snowmageddon. Well, today we
are getting nailed with snow again. We are supposed to get 9-10" overnight tonite.
Maybe I can get some projects finished while I am stuck in the house.

Even though it's been a couple of weeks since the last party, I still want to thank everyone for
sharing. I am still going to share my favorite projects.

I'm really impressed with this Message Center that
Denise..On A Whim created from an old crate lid.

I had never heard the term cerusing until I
saw this nightstand by Barb of Turtles and Tales. Awesome!

I have a thing about birds lately, so I really love this sign by

I would sure love to see what you all have been up to. Decorating,
sewing, painting and anything fun or creative.
And, hopefully I will be back to creating a little this week.

Restyled Sundays #57

Welcome Back to Restyled Sundays

Sorry I missed the party last week and have been out of touch. We have been dealing
with the Blizzard of OZ times Two. I did get some beautiful pictures, but we had 12" of snow
a week ago Thursday, and then another 12" this last Tuesday. For someone who thought
that Spring was almost here, I was not prepared. So I made soup and pie and lots of goodies
and did nothing but paperwork for two weeks .I was suffering from gray skies and a
lack of inspiration.

The trees were completely bent over by the weight of the snow.

Such a beautiful winter wonderland.

These yews normally completely hide the utility box.
At least it was interesting to look at. But I am so happy that
we are going to hit 40 degrees today and see some melting.

Anyway, back to the party!
Two weeks ago, the party had a couple of great projects I want to feature!

I love this corner cabinet makeover by Shabby Gals
be sure to check out the cute seat cushion on the chair next to it.

Next, this basket makeover is really nice. Kathy at Life on Lakeshore Dr
performed a quick and easy update. Great styling.

I'll try to stay more motivated this week, and maybe I will even finish a project!

Now let's see what you have been up to lately!
