~Whatcha Working on Wednesday...Thursday~

Hi blog buds!
Well, I'm a day late for WWW but that's the way of things for me lately but I'm not going to be upset about it because that's the way things are right now in my life and it won't be this way forever so I'm taking the work and watching the girls one day at a time:)

I finally got this spoon rack done, Stush cut it down for me and I love the way it turned out... except for not being able to find my envelope of labels, I've looked high and low for them and just can't find them...I hope I didn't throw them out by mistake. So instead of a label over the heart I just put a piece of black checked homespun, the three spoons are all old ones although I may take the 2nd from the left out and put a shorter one in. I also had fabric coming out of the bottom but it looked like to much fabric so out it came!
This is where I am right now, my little blogging corner of the internet, some day I'd like to paint the china cupboard and the wash stand but that will have to wait till at least spring.

I redid my counter in the kitchen corner with a handmade drawer that I had found a couple years ago at the Meadows Antique Fair for $5.00, the handle on it is on the right side because the bigger cutting boards wouldn't fit, I have other cutting boards but they are being used on my stove board and new shelf stand I had just bought.

Now I'll do a little bit of Grammy bragging.LOL
Michele went to Sydney's conference at school and the teacher said their isn't one thing negative she can say about her, she is in second grade by the way, the teacher tested all the class and Sydney is reading at 7th grade level and doing 4th grade level math...huh? I remember 2nd grade and we were bringing in grocerie products to play store/LOL
Anyway I'm very proud of her...she loves to read like her Grammy♥
Have a great day everyone, rainy here in PA and I work 5 to 10:30 this evening...I hope I make it:)
