|I put my back to school boyds bears on the old sewing cabinet that sits on top of my MIL's cedar chest and then found this adorable bird house and candle holder to go with them at HL.|
|I had a wooden picnic basket here for years, but I was tired of the look, so I found this adorable little shelf with 2 galvanized shelf/trays for this spot, it had to be short as I didn't want my quilt hidden behind it.|
|A closer look at the shelf. The two kitties on the top shelf were sent to my recently (from my Auntie) and they are also from HL in North Carolina. I haven't seen them at our HL. I think they are so cute!|
Yesterday I decided I was tired of my snowmen wall hangings and winter themes so I decided to jump the gun and go ahead and put out Valentines day stuff. All that pink and red and hearts brightens the room a bit and Valentines is less than a month away.
It's been a rough winter around here. Cliff is still holding his own and going to PT to strengthen his back and core so he doesn't walk so bent over. I had an epidural in 2 spots in my back this past week and I'm hoping it helps out with the pain I was feeling. My knee (left Knee) is bone on bone and the cartilage under the knee cap is totally gone as well. So I'm going through the process of getting another knee replacement. It worries me to be in the hospital for 4 days and leaving Cliff alone. I have to figure something out, but it won't be till April/May so I have sometime to get that arranged. I worry about him because he has the chemo brain issues that come from heavy duty cancer meds and he needs help daily - he needs me and I have to get this knee fixed and get out of pain so I can be the best me and help possible.
This winter has been so grey and depressing. I need some sunshine and the spring I think. So it helps to just redo little things in the house to switch it up and have some fun with it. I am so blessed to have a hubby who enjoys and appreciates all the little changes I make and how I switch things up. He is always so complimentary of what I do.
So tell me what you have been up to since the holidays?
Happy Stitches and Hugs,
