NEW CUPBOARD TUCK


HERE'S A CUPBOARD TUCK I JUST
FINISHED FOR MY UPDATE WHICH WILL BE
IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS I HOPE. I STILL
HAVE SOME THINGS TO FINISH UP.
I MADE THIS TUCK UP USING COTTON
WITH A BROWN TICKING STRIPE ACROSS
THE BOTTOM. I'VE RAG STUFFED IT AND AGED
IT NICELY.


HERE IS A NOT SO PRETTY CORNER OF OUR
BEDROOM RIGHT NOW BUT OH SO WONDERFUL
TO ME BECAUSE WE HAVEN'T HAD A.C.
IN OUR BEDROOM UNTIL NOW. OUR HOUSE
WAS BUILT IN THE 70'S WITH ELECTRIC HEAT SO
NO FURNACE. WE HAD CRANK WINDOWS  AND
TWO OF THEM WERE STATIONARY. NOW WE
HAVE THE DOUBLE HUNG WINDOWS WE
COULD HAVE AIR. YAY! WE WENT WITH A FLOOR
ONE BECAUSE WE DIDN'T WANT TO SCRATCH UP
THE WOOD ON THE NEW WINDOWS.

LASTLY, I AM 54 TODAY AND FEEL VERY BLESSED
BY THE LORD IN MY LIFE. I'M THANKFUL FOR
MY HUSBAND, SON AND FAMILY AND ALL
THE WONDERFUL FRIENDS IN MY LIFE BOTH IN
PERSON AND ON THE INTERNET. THANK YOU
FOR YOUR KINDNESSES AND CARING ABOUT ME.
MY LOVE TO EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU.
HAVE A BLESSED SUNDAY. UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

Happy Birthday! I just love the basket rug in the bedroom. The colors are wonderful. I like all of your cupboards and displays as well!

Glad you've got some AC! I didn't even know they had floor models!

Have a great day!

Happy belated birthday! I have an a/c unit like that in my studio and I LOVE IT! Our house was built in the 50's and we have baseboard heat and there are no ducts for central a/c. So glad that we have the option of the portable floor models now!
