More Before and After Furniture

Here's a little side table that I picked up
at one of my favorite consignment stores.
I think the color looks fresh and clean.
This is the after picture.

Here's the before.
Kinda a sad looking little table.

After I painted it I distressed it a little.
Here's a close up.

It would look good in a lot of different places.
Quite a difference from the before.

Here's another piece I think is so cute.
I got it at the same shop.
It's actually a homemade stool.
I did it in the same fresh color with a stained top.

Here's the before.

Here's a close up picture of the stained top.

And another picture of the after.
It could be used as a side table
or to sit on. 

For from Him and through Him
and to Him are all things.
To Him be the glory forever.
Romans 11:36

The Perfect EGG

What is more perfect then the egg.
This is a collection from my hens.
One from each one.

This is especially special to me because it contains
one of Penny's eggs. May she rest in peace.

What could be a more perfect example of one of
 God's creation.
May you all have a happy and
very Blessed Easter.

He said to him,
Love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your mind.
This is the greatest and most important commandment.
Matthew 22:37,38

A Happy and Brighter Dining Room

 I wanted to brighten up my dining room 
for spring and summer.
After a while I get really tired of the dark leather look.
So I decided to make a colorful cover that snaps at the bottom.
This makes them easy to put on and remove.
I went to my favorite fabric store, 1502
and found some happy colorful outdoor fabric.
Here's the room before.

Another view.

Here I am.
Brighten me up!

Here's the after.
Much better.
Much brighter.

Much happier!

Don't I look fantastic?

Happy Spring!

Trust in the Lord forever,
for the Lord, 
the Lord, is the Rock eternal.
Isaiah 26:4

Today is a sad day.
I went out to the chickens this morning to open the coop door.
Everyone came out as usual, running and hiding from Slippers
(he likes to jump all the girls in the morning if you know what I mean).
Out of the corner of my eye I noticed something on the coop floor
and it was Penny. She was dead.
She seemed fine yesterday. She even laid her beautiful egg.
When I checked on them last night she was on the roost trying to sleep.
Everything looked fine.
If anyone has any ideas on her cause of death please let me know. 
She was only 9 months old.

Isn't she beautiful.

Rest In Peace my beautiful bird.

To everything there is a Season, and a time
to every purpose under the heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1

The Chicks at 3 weeks old.

Well the girls are three weeks old.
My how time flies.
Here's the group shot of Nugget, Dolly and Sunflower.

This is Nugget.
With Cocoa in the background.

Another one of Nugget.

Here's Dolly.

Where is everybody?

This is Sunflower.

Isn't she beautiful!
She's a talker.

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us,
that we should be called children of God...
1 John 3:1
