Let's go shagging!!!!!

My little angel Shelby is ready for her dance!!! She is sooo excited. After shopping Saturday and Sunday, she didn't find any canvas tennis shoes. They were actually told Keds didn't make the white canvas shoe anymore. Didn't know that. So, she found some cute little grey and black with pink trim she will wear. Shelby is still practicing her dance moves but it will surprise me if she dances. We can barely get her to dance for us because she is embarrased!! LOL!!!

Hubby and I went to a local auction on Saturday and I purchased a four board farm table for $62. Here is the before picture....

and here is the after picture....

I am very pleased with how it turned out. My old kitchen table has a butcher block top and off white base with off white chairs. I got it at a good price and have used it for about 15 years so I definitely got my moneys worth but I have been wanting a different table so I took the plunge and decided to redo someone elses. It is so humid here that the stain is taking a while to dry but I will have it in the house before long. For now, I will use my black dining room chairs until I paint my other chairs or find some others I like.

Now, I need to get to work on the textile swap I signed up for. Got a couple of things made but need to do a few more. Hubby is out of town all week so maybe, just maybe, I will get something done.

Take care!! I'll be back soon. Hugs, Chatty Kathy
