It's Game Time

Don't you just love to get the family together and have a fun "game night". We do. It's getting harder and harder to spend time together doing something fun. This new game table that I painted has a nice collection of some of our favorite games, monopoly, backgammon, Yahtzee,cards, dice, scrabble etc. This table comes with 4 wooden chairs. I hope that the person who buys it will have just as much fun with their family on this table that I had making it.

I've Been Monkeying Around

I thought I would share what I have been monkeying around with!
I made a bed and childs chair to go with my "It's a Jungle Out There" bookcase!
I just love orangeutans and chimps! I am hoping that some lucky child gets a chance to enjoy this furniture!
As you have heard by now, the open house is coming up quickly and the showroom is full!
I wish you could all be there for the Open House.
I will post pictures of the event!

I can't breathe and it's not even me!

I did a web site for a friend of mine. (http://www.preservingheartandheritage.com/, I received some pictures of the blizzard that hit her yesturday. She lives in Alliance, Nebraska.

I felt as if I couldn't even breathe just looking at the pictures of her house! She says that they had only a 12" space under the outside overhang and had to crawl out onto the top of the snow drift.! That is what is shown in the first picture. The second picture is what they saw out of the upstairs window! This is where I couldn't breathe!

They then made the hole wider, and she cut steps into the hard packed drift. Her husband brought the feedlot payloader and started breaking apart the drifts.
In the third picture, can you see the cars?
The fourth picture is their house! yes, it is in there somewhere! I would have just waited for summer to arrive!

They did have food, but no water for flushing the toilet and no electricity, which means no heat!
In the fifth picture, you can see the amount of snow that was on the truck. They plowed around it first so you could see how deep it really was!
I think this is amazing!

She said she is thankful that they don't have many 60 mph blizzards!
I was just wondering, how do you let the dogs out in that??

Farm Animals Everywhere!

A quick post to show you my new farm inspired bookcase complete with some lazy pigs, cows, lamb and chicks and hen.

Then there is the new childs rocker, the cushion is a red paisley handkerchief design, perfect for reading their books in. I added the words of what each animal "says".

I also finished a new picture frame with the paintings of three unique chickens. It has been a very busy time here.
