Rocking Chair Redo!!

A custom order to paint this chair for a classroom.  She wants it to read to her students.  Of course gotta do the mascot theme and school colors for her room.  Blue/white and Longhorms.

The before....

I've never had to actually refinish a chair.  The vaneer (don't even know how to spell it)  on the seat was buckling up and the paint was all chipping away.  Sanded it all over and ripping the top layer off the seat part.  Haven't gotten it all off yet...still working on it.  Hopefully when I prime it, it will seal it and no more buckling seat/wood.  Can't wait to start working my magic!

Finished project!!

Baby High Chair

This was a process for me.  A friend had her children's highchair in storage.  It definately needed some TLC, with broken legs, etc.

Painted it without putting the tray on it and realized the rabbit was too low to be seen. 

So not only did I add another rabbit to make it taller, I changed them from brown rabbits to white rabbits, a butterfly flew in, grass grew and the sky appeared.

May have to make another change.  The rabbit I was looking at had one of his ears perked up, kinda looks funny so guess I will change the ear.  Other than that...my Facebook friends tell me this is my best work!!!  Thanks ladies....

Wyatt and Bubbles

My grandson, Wyatt, has not seen Bubbles since we found her after 10 days.  She has been healing and we wanted to make sure he wouldn't hurt her.  Last night Wyatt came for a sleepover and to visit with Bubbles.  I think the following pictures explains how happy each of them were to see each other and their love,

Found these two frames at Estate Sales.....cheap, cheap!  Brushed some chalk paint on them and  sanded off to distress.  Took down to Full Circle Antiques and put in my booth space.

Another Rooster Bar Stool

Sold the first Rooster Bar Stool fast and had a request for another one.  Sold it today.

Bubbles is Home!!!!!

After 10 days of searching and spreading information through Facebook, newspaper, flier, posters, etc. Bubbles made her way home!  A neighbor call stating he saw her down our dead end road.  She looked and acted like she had been attacked by a dog and had hunkered down for several days to recouperate.  She was still in shock and hurt very bad.  I took her to the Vet.  After 6 days at home...she is finally acting and feeling normal.  Her wounds are healing fast.

Daily Hawsville

Has been  a totally busy last few months here at Hawsville.  We were swamped with our lambing season of Haws Club Lambs offspring.  We are nearly sold out.  Only have about 30 or so sheep left to sale.  Men went to Sadalia, Missouri and purchased 3 new rams at the National Ram Show and Sale.  So excited about next year and looking forward to results from this show season!  Please check out our www.hawsclublambs.com website.

Haws Quail Farm is totally in full production right now.  I am setting eggs everyday, hatching just about everyday.  We built 3 new fly pens and the mortality rate has drastically gotten better.  So excited, I already have 1000 quail reserved.  Not only do I have quail eggs in the incubator, but I collected some peacock eggs and are trying to hatch some out.  Yesterday was my first hatchling.

Whew....no rest for the weary!!!

Lost Bubbles

I have been pretty devastated this last week.  Due to fireworks, my precious female Boston Terrier, Bubbles, ran away and we haven't seen her at all.  We live in the country with lots of bush and creeks around us.  Lots of family and friends have been searching.  We now have a $1000 Reward out for her safe return.  I am praying that someone has seen her and will help get her home.

Custom Ordered Step Stools

Created 2 step stools.  One was for 2 little girls soMom  just wanted a whimsical theme.

Love the turquoise and orange!

The other one was with a dinosaur Theme.  I thought this was pretty cute!  Loved the finished product.

Kitchen Cabinet Door Redone!

Love this old kitchen cabinet door.  Many uses and so many ideas.  I have several of these cabinet doors.  All I did was sand down the old white paint.  Love, love the REAL Original crackle paint on this one.

Little girl's Chair

Got ahold of 4 small chairs.  Created this one for any little girl out there to enjoy.  I love the roses cascading from the top and the added touch of a dragonfly on the backside.

Rooster Stool

Haven't been on here in a while.  Been busy checking out all the beautiful home decor/re-purposing pages on Facebook.  Did spend some time painting last week.  Created this beautiful rooster stool, that already sold out of my booth space.
