 I took some of these without the flash ...but you can't see the details as sure to click on the photos to see the detail..;) Jan did such a great job on this..You will love her work..;) Okay I finished up my candy caramel apples yesterday..I added a stamped message to the tops of the sticks and I scented them in apple spice scent..I love how they turned out!! some of these will go on my etsy site..Here is Sillie Millie asleep on a chair cushion that I have to resew one of the straps on..she gets comfortable anywhere..I also added decorative halloween/fall ribbons to each of these..;) Thanks again Donna for a  wonderful recipe..:)

I can't wait to share these with the gals at church..they are going to love them.;) taking one to church to see if we can make these next month at our enrichment night.;) Okay onto the table and chairs..oh this has turned into a FULL TIME project to say the least..we have sanded those chairs to the bare wood and they still won't take the one is in the trash can..the other 3 will see if a coat of stain and varathane will do the trick..We have decided to buy new chairs and use our old ones as is a link of the chairs I purchased yesterday from JCPenneys.;) I am so excited to get these..I am going to make some penny rug covers to go over the backs of these I think....;) oh and the table top is way to dark for my we are stripping the table yet again..and I am getting a much lighter oak color to go with the black base..the color on it now is pretty..just not for this hubby will be sanding it all down again!! today and then recoating it with the new hopefully this week this project will come to an end and be in my dining room..;)

  8. Gina,

    Jan did a fabulous job on the tea kettle. She's been a favorite of mine on ebay for years. The caramel apples look yummy. Love the new diningroom chairs you bought. I guess I'll have to try that approach so I can buy so new ones...but that will have to wait til after my kitchen renovation is complete. Congrats on the sale.
