The Wind is Howling Today.......


..........so i'am going to spend the day hunkering down inside and  drafting a few posts, playing in the craft room and just generally finding reasons to NOT go outside! 40mph wind gusts! 

I've been dying to show you my new bookshelf!! Hubby designed it and put it together and after a little sanding this week  we will stain it together.......He built it , with it lying down and when we stood it up the sheer size of it took my breath away.......

.........and if you can believe this, this is only the first section...there will be three sections total .....each one with a different configuration of shelves. .....It will fill an entire wall in the vaulted ceiling part of our house.....It will take me a lifetime to fill it with books.....and trinkets.....All the edges will be trimmed with this leaf pattern and the stain we will use is Pecan, probably two coats.......I'll be sure to show you the finished piece in a few weeks......

Hubs and i took a wonderful trip this past weekend. I have so many excellent pictures i want to show you it may take a couple posts......stay tuned! Hugs! deb
