I'm Back!!!!

~ capturing the weekend in pictures Friday through Monday

Re-inventing Mother

Why in the name of digital heaven would my computer say that I have no wireless card installed for hours one night and then the next morning be perfectly fine?  The MOST frustrating thing!  But, I here I am!  So let's get those photos posted!


It was a pretty busy weekend and then it wasn't.  Make sense?  Lot's to do, but things that weren't pressing.  I am spending a lot of mental time thinking about packing for our upcoming trip. We ship luggage this Sunday!

All the furniture in the above pictures was painted in the last 3 days.  The crib had been a natural wood, but I wanted it to match the other furniture in the room.  Mission accomplished!

The rocking chair was the one I had rocked all my daughters in as babies.  With the advent of the glider rockers, no one really wanted to use it.  But not able to give it away, I painted it and placed it on the front porch.  I love sitting out there in the mornings when it is cool.

I also did some sewing.  I am still using my daughter's Bernina.  Mine won't get repaired until the end of the month.  These are little pillowcase dresses for the oldest granddaughters.  All made from my fabric stash!

Of course, the weekend would not be complete without gardening. I added a red coneflower and filled the front window boxes with shade loving annuals.


  1. I love the rocker, and the dresses are just precious! The hydrangea's are beautiful! Great weekending post!!!

  2. I love how you are using your rocker. I still sit in the rocker my mom gave me when I had my first baby, I can't get rid of it either.
