August 2012 Recap
Happy Labor Day! I think it is a holiday that we may not think of as first in importance, but considering how many people are needing work in this country, I hope that we remember how blessed we are if we do have work. And pray for those that need work… and then enjoy your day off from work, go figure!
Time for August’s summary post (can you believe it is already September… crazy!)
Our recent remodeling projects etc:
The most recent remodeling project we have been sharing with you is the transformation of our powder room in Texas… there are 2 or 3 posts to come but you can see the before, pocket door installation and laying the inlaid tile rug so far.
We shared two fabulous plans one for cabinet storage bins and one for a corner mudroom bench, now you can DIY these any time you like! (lucky you!)
We moved, yep it was not very fun, but we are thankful it is over, we told you about how it went for us here and shared some moving tips to help you out if you plan to more soon.
We had two giveaways and showed you how we updated the faucet in our new bathroom and then we gave you 10 great mowing tips to mow your yard like a pro.
