This blog originally was about my passion for upcycling furniture, but 4 years ago I lost my husband and my whole life has changed.
I put my blog on hold but recently decided to start posting again.

The January Blahs
Well the Christmas decorations are down and the season has come to an end, the house looks bare without all the lights and decorations. I have been sorting through all the decorations new and old and carefully packing them away for another year. I hope the next time i use these decorations it will be in our new home in Ontario. Oh how I long for my own home, where I can do whatever I please, paint walls, decorate to my liking, plant as many flowerbeds I want anywhere I want. I plan our new home room by room, how i would like it to look the things I want to do, the colours I will choose for each room. I like to imagine where all my unique finds will fit in our new home. I can't wait to give them a permanent spot and add to them once we are settled. The home I imagine in my dreams always has a front porch or a wrap around porch. The other day I found a unique set of wicker rocking chairs perfect for front porch rocking. I said I wasn't going to make anymore big furniture purchases, because it is just more stuff to haul back to Ontario, but these were a great deal and I love them. I went to an estate sale the other day too and picked up three colanders, two from the 1820's and one from the 1950's, the woman also had an old telephone or call box, it has numerous lines, so i don't think it was a phone used in homes, I will have to research it some more and find out what it was used for. My projects are on hold for now because I have no place to work on them, the basement is crammed with everything i am packing up to take home to sell. and the garage is also full of stuff packed away and hubby's motorcycle. so i guess I have to wait till spring to do anymore painting, stripping or sanding. Its hard for me not to be working on anything right now because i always seem to have a project on the go. I guess i will have to use this time to sort through everything and pack for our move back to ontario. We are hoping that we will be back by summer and i hope we will be in our new home this summer. I can't wait to have my own garage to work on all of my projects and start working on my plan to have my own business. If we get a place with a little bit of land I would love to build my own shop to display my wares and a large yard to hold antique sales and flea markets. hopefully someday soon...................
