Just A Little More Christmas Shopping!




You'd think I would be Christmas shopping, or at least done with my shopping but "No, I'm not!"

Friday, I experienced the joy of an over-heated car, and waiting for AAA for a couple of hours, apparently I was low on their list of "Urgent" calls.

Fortunetly my #1 was able to fix it!

So, today I was back on the road only to quickly pull over as it started to over-heat again!

This time, I called my dear mother who picked me up, I really didn't want to wait around for a couple of hours, just to much to do.

I'm really not complaining because if that's as bad as it gets, things are looking pretty good!

I did get a few things done though, but it did slow down Christmas shopping.

 I was able to get a few more things together for Monticello.

Which also meant a few more things out of my house.



Here is a piano I picked up a few years back.

It has needed a lot of TLC, unfortuneatly there was just so much I could do.

So, I decided to do something a little different with it.




I'm hoping someone will see the charm in this little piece.

She has all the right creamy, chippy paint that I find so appealing.




Inside the piano, a little surprise!

A little birds nest!

Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
