Hello, there!
I hope everyone had a great weekend with warmer temperatures.

Although it has warmed up a little bit in Texas, we pretty much stayed home this weekend working on several projects we have going on right now.

My daughter and I did some grocery shopping early Saturday morning and afterwards, we went out to Dillard's and Macy's and also made a stop at Hobby Lobby and the rest of the weekend was spent at home.

We worked on different projects.
I made a new runner for my kitchen island using some fabric I had leftover from the pillows I made for the breakfast table.

And I also finished adding all the grommets to the drop cloth I had purchased to replace all my porch outdoor curtains.
Now I just have to hem them, iron them and they will be ready to go up.

And I worked on my front porch wreath.

While I was busy doing that, my husband worked on his "indoor project" :) 
He has been working on his new workshop for a while now.
He took a break during the Summer while he rebuilt the back porch and now he is back to trying to finish making his cabinets and counter tops.
Although the cabinets still need to be stained or painted and hardware added, this is where he is at right now.
I know it will be beautiful when he is done.

And when all was done, we gave Angel a little bit of a hair trim and a good bath.
She was NOT very happy about all that.
Look at that face, she was telling me "how could you ???" LOL

And that was our weekend. It sure was nice to be home!
