From OLD to NEW

I have the GREAT fortune of living next to some amazing people in AZ. Actually, I have found since I have moved here that MOST people are amazing and if you aren't . . . you are out numbered-- so you better get used to it. Everyone has a talent. . say for example THIS person who just took fab pictures of my kids (check the FB for a link). She has a great talent!!

Then, just down the street from me there is THIS person, who makes AMAZING hand crafted gifts. And THIS person who makes jewelry . . I used to think that I made cute jewelry. . but these, these are CUTE!

And then there is Wendy, who is an amazing painter. I have done a few paint projects in my time . . my chairs, and my kitchen caddy, but when it came down to re-finishing my kitchen table, I knew exactly who to call. She took my kitchen table from this . .

to THIS!!!!

Isn't it AMAZING! She did an incredible job, and get this! Rather than re-stain the top and sand the heck out of it, she just painted that table top and did some dry brushing to give it some depth! I LOVE the way it turned out. . . and just when I was ready to TOSS THAT TABLE OUT, now, it looks amazing and I couldn't live without it! Thanks Wendy!

Oh, and for those of you who have seen my tables and chairs in person, I painted the white ones cream, because I just was going to miss the miss-matchiness of it all! So, now they coordinate with the whole look! It couldn't be better. Need a new look? Check out Wendy's Blog! Do you love it as much as I do??

Oh, and to comment about your Facebook post. Yes, Adam is totally gay. I have great gaydar. My husband has HORRIBLE gaydar. He was coworkers with a guy for 2 years, spent hours and hours with him, I meet the guy for 2 minutes and I instantly know. My husband didn't believe me until the guy left the company to work for GLAAD or something like that. Love Adam Lambert though.

And I do have a love/hate relationship with FB for the most part. I feel quite disconnected from everyone I connect with. Nothing beats a face to face conversation, and now that I've friended most people I knew from the past, it seems I've exhausted its purpose for me. But if I was breastfeeding a lot, I'd love that stuff!
