Hey, guess what I am alive and well! Did any of you miss me?
I feel like I have been absent from my own blog for a while. Sorry ’bout that!
The sad thing is many of you new readers have never even heard from me, so HI! I’m Cassity, so nice to.. uh… meet you and welcome to my blog. I feel like I have been gone for a very long time, although I work on my blog for a few hours a day at least. And honestly, I have been so busy with the blog and visiting family that I really haven’t done much else.
But I have a project to show you! Yea!
This last week, I had enough of unfinished projects and decided to get going on one. After a last minute trip to the fabric store, I got busy and actually worked on one of my own projects, I know WOW!
But guess what it is still not exactly done, and I want your advice. I shall explain.
The other exciting news is that last week was my ninth wedding anniversary! Happy ‘Nanniversary to me! (as we like to say for no reason that I can think of). This project is for our anniversary gift. Here is the background.
Around our first anniversary, I was thinking it would be fun to get a plant and watch it grow…. ah love.
Well, Luckily, since I probably would have killed the thing, I went to the local grocery store of all places and found these huge mason jars, 1 1/2 to 2 gallon size, and I thought, “Those would be fun flour and sugar containers.” I begged my husband to let us buy them (I think they were only like $15 dollars a piece but we were very poor college students… Now we’re…uh… still paying for college, ah dang!) for our anniversary and the tradition was born. (I still love those jars)
So, the tradition began to buy something that would hold some meaning and be useful to us and possibly be something that we can hand down to our children at some point.
So Far we have purchased:
Flour and Sugar Containers/ Jars, a large wall clock, a beautiful picture of the Savior, pewter dishes, more pewter( i like me some dishes people!), a dresser, an armiore and now a bench.
I have been re-doing the bench, and I have a question about glazing. Do you think I should? I feel like it is lacking a bit of character, but I love the bright white. I am even thinking of taking a tiny brush and just glazing the joints in the faux bamboo.
Here are the before and after so far, I will be back with more explanation of the how to when I get the chance.
