10 Things I've Been Putting Off

Today I marginally decided to do 10 things that I'd been putting off. You know, those things that just never get done. I got 9 done. So I am a pretty happy girl. How many more things have I been putting off? Don't ask.

10 Things Not Put Off Any More!

1. Glue broken Easter decorations
2. Sew Andrew's broken tie (he missed it for a few Sundays)
3. Finish reading my Great-great-Grandfather's biography (he emigrated from Switzerland, had 3 wives, was the German-Swiss Mission President twice, lived in Providence, Utah and Paris, Idaho where he was the first mayor. Fancy, huh.)
4. Swept (with help from Scott) and mopped my kitchen
5. Swept (with a lot of encouragement for Scott) and mopped my kitchen (easily counts for 2)
6. Made banana bread with those really nasty looking bananas (well, I did that yesterday, but I ate it today!)
7. Spray painted a frame white that has been hanging mismatched in Charity's room
8. Planted the rest of my wheat grass (the pots planted Wednesday are already shooting up!)
9. Painted my toenails. Yea Spring!
10. Guess what, I didn't do 10. It was fold a bunch of loads of laundry that have been piling up. Do you have any idea how much laundry a family of 7 produces? Okay, a lot of you do. But it is monstrous! That one will have to wait for another day.

P.S. Charity says hi!

Pink Chair, oooooohhhh!

I love pink, I do. And this chair is darling! I wish I could sew a slipcover like this. Check out the before and after, too.

Darling Play Kitchen

I found a blog that mostly sells refinished furniture, The Frosted Gardner. And while some of the pieces are very cute, I really wanted to show you this play kitchen that her mother put together for the grand kids. Isn't it amazing?

A real fridge with treats, a real sink, lots of play pieces and all darling! I want to make one of these for my grand kids (in a lot of years). Check out the other pictures and a list of all the amenities here!

Stripes for the Playroom

Wouldn't a playroom (like mine) look darling in stripes like this?

Seen on Room Remix along with a lot of other great stripes.

Who Do You Think You Are?

I just watched the first episode of Who Do You Think You Are? on (If you missed it last Friday you can watch it here.) I loved it. I thought it was very inspiring. At least I wanted to log on to right then and find some fascinating ancestors.

Did you see it? What did you think?
