Some things never change!

When my husband and I were newlyweds, Bob Villa was on This Old House and we watched it all the time. Then came FoodTV and DIY shows of all sorts and we watched them all the time. Now, I have an iPad and my desktop and I am on them all the time. Doing what, you ask? Admiring old houses, looking for recipes, and compiling ideas for DIY and projects on Pinterest. All.The.Time. Back then, we spent so much time watching This Old House and The New Yankee Workshop (I’m really dating myself here, aren’t I?), we didn’t do many home improvement projects.

Today, now, I am trying to tear myself away from Pinterest and Hometalk on one of the soon to be nicest days yet this year in Western Maryland. I have new chalk paint that I bought yesterday, a new (old) metal drawer that I want to turn into something, previously frozen “melted” fall pumpkin guts  on my porch from which I want to glean seeds (and then get the heck off of my porch since they are disgusting), and so many other projects that it makes my head spin. But, here I am, blogging about my issues and not DOING anything! So, after I post a couple of pics of hopefully-to-be-done-today projects, I am going to hop to it!

Don't judge! ;)

Chalk paint?

Chalk paint the aluminum bowl? Make a banner from the embroidered pieces?
