More home projects

Hi everyone,
Thanks for all the sweet responses about my illness. I am feeling much better now. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend celebrating the resurrection of our Savior. Our son held a Seder dinner at our house on Friday night. We have never participated in one before. He has been attending a messianic Jewish congregation and has been studying about it and what an eye opening experience it was. We read almost all of the 1st 12 chapters of Exodus. We ate, sang songs and enjoyed fellow shipping with several of our friends. We even had one family that lives in Memphis, TN join in via Skype. Here are some pictures of our (passover) table. We are now planning on making this a tradition in our home even though we are not Jewish. It really opened our eyes to an in depth look as to the real reasons we celebrate this holiday and why it is so important.

I went shopping at a garage sale the other day and picked up a few items that made me happy. I got the clock for $5.00, the mask for $.75 and the Coke crate for $5.00. (Can you believe that one?) It has 1963 stamped on the inside of it. The same year I was born if you can believe imagine that. I'm planning on Mod Podging the mask and will show you later how it all turns out. My husband is crazy about the Coke crate. He wants to use it as decor in his man cave when he gets it finished. The clock I put in the music room/study.

Here are some more tassels that I made a couple of weeks ago.

I am redecorating our bonus room upstairs. The walls are chocolate and I am using zebra and turquoise as the accent colors. Here is a better picture of the dresser after I finished painting it. It used to be an olive color.

Here are some more pictures of the room. The zebra quilt on the table I actually made it myself with the help of a friend of mine.

This is an old flower cart I picked up from the side of the road that someone was throwing away that was rusting and I painted it and threw some of my magic on it and wha-la, a new decorator piece. What do you think?

I copied Liz from Savvy Seasons and bought this candle warmer at Wal-mart. It's wonderful. Thanks Liz for the great idea.

Here are some of the Easter decorations we had on our kitchen table this year. My husband colored the eggs and I decorated the cake platters with them.

Last but not least, this is my new leopard roo!!!! I picked him up from my favorite store that by now I must have some kind of stock in by now...Hobby Lobby.

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoying some of the things in my life that make me smile. May God bless you all. (Y'all as my husband would say)
