Thursday Favorite Things Blog

Thursday's Favorite Things with Katherine's Corner

Thursday, my favorite day!  Time to link up with Katherine's Corner for Thursday Favorite Things.   Honestly, I don't know if I do this blog hop right.   I think everyone else just links their favorite posts of the week.  Me, no I am special and I create a post.  LOL.   So I have given in a little and included links to my favorite posts this week but still created a unique blog because, I am a ginger and we are genetic mutants.  (That's my story!) 

I have had this table up for sale for about 3 weeks and while everyone has told me how beautiful it is and I know the price isn't off  (because I searched for simiar styles and they are selling for $250+ more than I am asking for this piece) so I couldn't figure out what was wrong.  A friend of mine suggested perhaps I need to work on furniture staging.  I don't know the first thing about this stuff.  This is my first attempt at staging and while I wish I had pretty hardwood floors to show this off, tile is the best I could come up with for the time being until we refinish the stuff under the carpet.  So, how did I do?  It probably looks much better than the old picture sitting infront of the sofa with nothing on it.   Maybe I am just appealing to wine lovers? 

My flowers from last week look even better this week!  This is our first spring in this house so I am surprised everyday by what pops up out front. 

We have an 1.20 acres and we are planting some fruit trees!  In a few years there should be pears, peaches and pecans for everyone!  We also have a garden planned.  Ah, fresh tomatoes!  I think I am going to have to learn to can and make jam soon.  Oh darn!

If you missed my blog on this dresser transformation click here to see how I did it.  I really love the semi-industrial feel of this piece. 

And I can't tell you how much I am loving these end tables I transformed from ugly 70's to cute green and cream dreams.  If  you missed Monday's blog click here for the makeover info.  I have been wanting a pair of these forever and they turned out even better than I dreamed!

Oh, and I finally got my tickets for Rangers Baseball!   April 10, 2015 is the Home Opener.  YAY!!!

Hooray for fruit trees! A little work and a huge reward. Good luck selling the table.

Thanks! We planted the last peach tree last night. They are so pretty and I was just glad no critters came out while I was digging. Big, hairy spiders of the tarantula variety are known to show up in my yard from time to time. YUCK! LOL. Happy Friday!

Oh thank you Jas, I love this link and I am totally looking forward to seeing my fruit trees blossom and grow! :)

I'm going to be so jealous of those fruit trees!

Oh, my we just added another one yesterday, a plum. I wish we could sucessfully grow citrus but it is still too cold in the winter here. I would get a lemon tree for sure! I will send you some peaches when I learn to can! :)
