OOOOOOh I love presents and a makeover too

OK, so my BFF and I are known for celebrating Christmas and our birthdays months after the actual used to be because we lived 1200 miles apart, but it has continued now that we only live a little over an hour from each other. We joke about it every year, but now I think we actually enjoy extending the holiday, which brings me to todays post....just look at the beautiful new crock and prim pretties my BFF Penny blessed me with on Sunday...I LOVE everything, dont you ?
She is THE best gift giver...always finds the perfect gift !!!! I love you Penny !!!

Well, I have been working on a few projects, but not getting much done since hubby is on vacation and we are working on stuff around the house etc. Going inot the city tomorrow to see the new Benjamin Franklin exhibit at the history center...cant wait !!!

                  Ok, now on to the makeover....aren't these little tiered shelves too sweet ????

Cant find the "before" for this one, but I am so pleased with how it turned out.

I almost have enough things done to start listing some for sale...Hooray !!!

Also look at these terrific cutting boards I am working on today ...
After....I just need to add some jute rope to hang it and its all done !!!!

Well gals, that's all for today . I am sooo sorry I haven't posted in a week...its been very hectic. I promise to post more later tonight !!! I have been working on stacked boxes, a wall pocket and some little projects I think you'll all like.

Grace to you,


  1. What a fun tradition you and your friend have. I think she did quite well picking some fab gifts for you! Your shelves are super. I am currently in the middle of shelf addiction. They are such fun and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes!

  2. I love all your makeovers! They look great! Your friend has some great taste in gifts!

  3. Special friends like that are sure bought you a little present today too,but you'll have to just be patient another week or so.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  4. I love your before and afters. I also do some myself. I love the gifts you received from your friend. Looks like we share the same taste in decorating.

    Country at heart

  5. Great gifts! What a fun way to do an exchange with a friend! Love the makeovers, isn't it great when you can totally repurpose something great from something simple.... Blessings ~Kriss~

  6. Wow! I love the gifts. The shelves you refinished are beautiful, too :)
