benches.  This is the top to a bench.
Next I will be sanding and painting the legs and skirt to the bench.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

 I have my Nebraska Plates out for the football season!  
 This is a Peggy Karr plate which our good friends 
Bob & Julie gave to us for Christmas a long time ago.  
 A few years ago when we were in Omaha visiting family
we saw this plate and could not resist.
Julie and Bob gave this to me for my birthday this year.  
I have not hung it up yet.  
I have no idea what I am waiting for so I had better get to it.

Another chair or two

 This little accent chair I found at my niece's store in Carroll, Iowa.  
I think it had at least 6 coats of paint on it.  
This weekend I stripped it now it  
 is ready for the Bazaar!
 The quote I have on this is from the song - 
"Oh what a beautiful Day" 

Then I found this little kids chair and painted "Time Out" on it.  
Last year I sold a red one at the Bazaar.

A chair for the bazaar

 I picked up this little chair at a local store a while back 
and decided to work on it this week. 
 It will be going to the Christmas Bazaar with me 
and hopefully someone will buy it.  
 The quote is "And I think to myself what a wonderful world".  
I love that saying. 
 I have another little chair that I stripped off the paint today. 
Now to repaint it and put a quote on it as well.
This is almost too cute to sell!!!
