  1. That is sooo cool..can't wait to see what you do with it
    I am having a yard sale this week end and did O K today since the heat factor was 110..hope to do good again tomorrow.
    Having a craft sale here on my carport the 26th and keeping my fingers crossed to do well at that too.
    Have a great week end

  2. Sounds like you have a great start on filling it. I have had fun searching for bowls to put in mine. Flea market here I come today for another search. Enjoy your self & congrat's.

  3. That is awesome fabric Gina, I bet it will be cute for Kimmy's cottage.
    I love the dough bowl rack. How about some granite ware plates or bowls. I have a few I think I could part with if ya don't have any. I have a awesome pie pan. Maybe we can do a swap?
    That is so nice that you are helping the new Mom. So hard to be alone so soon after the little one has showed up. I know that one all too well.
    Have a great day. Hope the weather holds nice for us. Rained her today.

  4. I love the fabric! I am sure the curtains will look great made from it! I really like your new shelf. You are one lucky lady!

    I am sorry that your husband has hurt his foot. I hope he gets better really soon!

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  5. Your such a good friend and neighbor. I remember when my kids were little it was so nice to have my Mom around to help me.

    I love the bowl rack. Can't wait to see it when you have it up and filled with goodies.

    Hope you have a great weekend!


  6. Morning Gina! Wow you are taking care of EVERYONE! Hope you find some time for yourself this weekend!! (Yes I know what ya mean about the garden-where I'm heading!lol) Love this fabric and look forward to the kitchen pics at your friend's house! I am sooo jealous of that beautiful bowl shelf/rack! Can't wait for those pics too!(no pressure!!!lol) Sorry your hubby is in pain and wish him a speedy recovery!!! Sincerely, Jeannette (Enjoy your weekend)

  7. Oh boy Gina... we all gotta take the bad with the good don't we. Speedy well wishes for your hubby, but I know how they love to play those games:)
    Bless your heart for helping your neighbor. You will be rewarded:)
    That is one nice lookin' bowl keep! You could put an olde bread board or cutting board in that thing and hang some ole textile fabrics and bonnets on it too. I'll be patiently awaiting those pics of it decorated in all its' primitive splendor. LOL.
    Yes, you make sure to give yourself some downtime too luv. We don't want you to get too worn before your time:) Love ya!
