I am keeping up with my calendar project however not doing much else other than packing.

Another furniture makeover...

This table was originally it's natural wood which was in very bad condition.
I painted it purple to use in my shop many years ago.
About 4 years ago, I painted it yellow to use in my booth at the Community Market.
Last year I brought it home and it has been sitting in my studio.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to use it in our entry way however the
yellow just wasn't working so I painted it red... 
Painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Emperor's Red and
added new red glass knobs.
It looks gorgeous and really is a wow factor when you walk in our home.
The shelf contains an assortment of jars filled with seashells from our trips
to the beach.

A favorite place...

This is one of my favorites places to be...
A few weeks ago, I painted the top of my work table and I love it!
I love being surrounded by color and lots of it.

Wreaths Across America...

 My mother and I spent last Saturday at Arlington National Cemetery taking part in the Wreaths Across America event. Over 200,000 wreaths were laid by volunteers, many of them were members of the families of the veterans. My maternal grandfather is interred there and my first wreath was placed on his grave. It was an emotional day for all...

Here are some photos of the convoy that traveled from Maine to Arlington... 
Rolling Thunder! 

My grandfather, he was an honorable man and a true hero.
Before the wreaths. 
My first wreath.

The changing of the guard and wreath laying at the
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier...

Eternal Flame
at the gravesite of John F. Kennedy 

What an experience. All this is done at the hands of volunteers.
What a wonderful country we live in.
God Bless our Veterans.
