What I've Been Doing Instead of Cooking...

My life has felt a bit odd the last little while, I've been spending a lot of my time refinishing my kitchen chairs and not cooking.  I did finally break down Sunday after spending all day outside in shorts in the beautiful sun and warm weather preparing our garden, helping my husband finish the Hen House (for our chickens), and finishing a chair, I baked a Chocolate Zucchini Cake.  The feeling of summer was in the air and the taste of that cake was in my mouth.  Thank goodness I put some up last summer for the these kind of emergencies.  I will be posting this recipe for you to drool over until you make it, but first I am going to show you a preview of what I've been up to...

My very helpful model, he makes the chairs look SO much better don't you think?

I have one more chair to do, not sure what color yet.  Probably a burnt orange or mustard color, what do you think?  I'm always open to you're input!
This is where I found the idea & confidence to paint and glaze my chairs Spunky Junky.

 And this is what project I want to make next... A Wrestling Buddy!!! for my little Chair Model.
 It is such a brilliant idea and SO CUTE!  I think this would make such a great birthday present for my sons friends as well.

When did your model get his hair cut?!?!?! I didn't recognize him for a second.....soooo handsome!

LOVE the chairs and LOVE shepards pie. I used creamed corn instead of frozen, adds a nice sweetness to it ;)

We need to hang out, call me now we can send the kids outside and soak up some sunshine!
