( I had been looking for a square table, although I had a rectangular coffee table that had seen better days), so I asked the manager how much it was he said $25. Oh yeah ! I paid and loaded it in my van as quickly as I could. ..and I promptly put the old one out in the garage . I'm not usually a glass kind of girl-but I like seeing the rug underneath and how it is higher than the coffee table.
mentioned they were looking for furniture, so I offered our old table -which she graciously accepted.
Today, as I was loading it in the van, I saw the kids "signatures" on the bottom -so I took a few pics to remember their little hands laying underneath, drawing and coloring...
and I'm also glad they teachers will be able to use it, paint it, etc...

Here is "the school list".
I love it and I love her.
It was a little word with a very big "punch".
"He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names." KJV
Wow! To think He knows their names!? He knows how many??
I can't even fathom it , but I do know He loves us even more than the stars.
A very big thing indeed.

accent by using my Sizzix die cut.
I also reduced one of our wedding pics and used it for an accent on the card.
I cut out the hands separately and put them on the 1 and 5.
There's the wedding picture tag and another tag together-using wonderful Martha Stewart ribbon.
Once again the final card with lots of shading and layering involved. I loved it.
First!...walk down "hall bath" lane with me..
For the past 5 years I have been living with grey and blue tile. Sorry -blurry picture.
Tile that was already here...
Older cabinet (particle board-old medicine cabinet etc..) Standard faucet.
First we had to take out the old to bring in the new, not the fun part!
Out with the toilet, mirror, and cabinet.
Tiles he had saved for five years! ( in case we could use them)
New cabinet installed-Mirror from Ross ($33!) granite remnant from previous job, sink and faucet free -from job not used/wanted )
Tiled Shower wall, with accents = lovely! Wood soap dish from Ms. Buettner -kid's teacher. (Brought over for us from Africa!)
I can't wait- my room and master bath are next on the remodel/tile list! Thanks for looking!
