Hi - been a long time since I have updated my blog, but have been very busy. My garden had required lots and lots of time, as well as redecorating my dining room.
I have taken the wallpaper down, which took me over 15 hours of time, taped off the wainscoting, and re-painted it. My wonderful hubby painted the top of the walls for me.
I made a new valance, and covered 11 lamp shades in material to match the room.
We purchased a cheap round ottoman, which I have recovered also. If I must say so myself that ottoman turned out wonderful.
Tom and our friend Jack have added crown molding to the kitchen cabinets, and I now consider the kitchen finished.

My friend Betsy and I went on the tour of gardens for Summit County, and we saw Dawn there with one of her friends. I'll tell you something, there is a commitment to gardening that these garden owners have, which I seem to be lacking. I keep mine weed free etc., but still somehow they lack the beauty of these people. But I love my garden non the less.

I have put a new pic on the blog of a banner that I made for one of my swap groups. I think that it turned out well.

Until another time - Darlene

Ugh, wallpaper removal! But how fun to have a revamped room! The banner, Darlene, is delightful!
