    I just started a new medication that is kicking my butt so my DD is taking over most of the Thanksgiving duties when she comes home. We also have to eat much earlier than we usually do because DS has to go to work at 3pm. Normally everyone gets to choose a favorite dish and I add it to the...

    My kitchen is very small. It is well planned out though so that I have enough storage. It is counter space that I am lacking. I do alot of things on a card table. The card table has sort of a fake leather like top. I would really like to convert this top or cover it with something that I...

    I'd like to make some themed table runners for myself, since the ones I've seen in the store run around 20.00. I searched the net for some free patterns and found a couple, but they only have measurements, no actual pattern for me to go by. Do any of you have a pattern that you'd like to share...

    I found a free side table yesterday propped up against the recycle bin at my apartment complex. I had my family over for a barbecue and my mom found a nice metal shoe rack and a wooden bar stool in great condition. Right next to these things was the side table. It's just the right size to keep...

    Nothing :) Well actually, the kitchen eating area table just has a table cloth on it. I only keep it covered because the sun comes in the bay windows and I don't want the wood to fade. The formal dining room has just a huge glass container that has faux star fruit in it. We only eat at the...
