When Your Mom Is in Heaven on Mother's Day

My mom passed away in 2009.  My first Mother's Day without her was extremely painful.  As the days crept up to Mother's Day that year, I anticipated it with great fear.

The Leaf Dresser

So this little guy was a curbside pick up.
It was FREE but boy oh boy was it in horrible shape!




In fact when I brought it home my husband was really upset and said I need to be pickier with the things I'm picking up.  It had a hole on top of it...no lie!  It was dark when I picked it up in my defense...

I secretly agreed with him but didn't let him see me sweat!

Instead I stood up nice and tall and told him I had big plans for this piece and you just wait till I'm done....

Light Washed Denim Cabinet

I love this little record cabinet.  I saw it listed and just had to snatch it up.
I love the wood detailing.




The other night my daughter and I spent some time at our local Barnes and Noble browsing through several books.  I came across this photo in a book and I was inspired.

Part two of my Love Language

Hello friends!


This post is the update to this post.




So we didn't get the china cabinet but it wasn't because of my husband's unwillingness to go get it with me....  so he isn't the bad guy in this story!  lol

My Love Language

My love language is Acts of Service...






If you've never heard about the 5 love languages you can learn more about them here.


I read this book probably 10 years ago and learned so much, not only about myself, but also about the relationships around me.
I strongly recommend it if you haven't read it...








Anyway, this post isn't about promoting the book it's about sharing the news.


The news that...
I'm about to burst with excitement.


Why?

Pretty in Pink Dresser


Every once in a while I come across a piece of furniture that I love.  A piece that only lasts a couple of days in my garage because I'm so excited to get my hands on it.

This is one of those pieces.  I just love all of the lines and details this little dresser has.  She was in really bad shape though and it wasn't easy transforming her.
