A little rearranging and a new table

Well first off I found a new dining room table.   I have been wanting a farmhouse table forever and wanted this shape and it was only $50.00.   Can't bet that!!  I didn't take a before picture, but the legs were kind of buttery color.  I painted them white and plan on redoing the top.  I am thinking golden oak or walnut.  I am not sure what do you think?  I am  pretty sure it is solid wood too and it is super heavy.  I would love to get some different chairs someday.   Maybe even a different bench too.

Do you ever get a wild hair and start rearranging stuff late at night?  Well I did and changed up the wall behind my couch and I really liked the way it looks.  Something different for a change.  I got the old window at the thrift store for $2.  Hung the "W" from strip of fabric and I already had the plates.   When I rearrange things I like the house clean.  So I spent today cleaning my house.

I think winter is officially here!

It has been so cold here in Alabama!  This morning I woke up to frost over the ground and freezing cold.  I am pretty much a cold blooded person so freezing cold weather doesn't set very well with me!  I done a little Christmas decor outside because we are trying to sell our house and I didn't want to have to take a ton of it down.  So if anybody is looking for a house to buy in mine please....just kidding well not really.

So here is the outside of my house

I made some initial glass ball ornaments last year.   I bought some clear glass ball ornaments last year at Hobby Lobby,  bag of fake snow, and some stick on letters from the scrapbook section.  I took the caps off of the balls and stuffed the snow inside.  Stuck one of the letters on front.  Instead of using plain ornament hangers I used ribbon to tie it to the tree to give it some jazz. I actually done that to several other ornaments too.  I just tied it in a loose knot instead of bow.  I made everybody in my family ornaments with their initials on them.  They would make great gifts for Christmas or even for teachers. 

I am linking to these parties today:

Have a great day!!
