Hi everyone! Sincere apologies for the week long absence but as we all know stuff just happens and gets in the way.
But any how I'm pleased to say that I DID get some painting and sanding and staining done so you know that means I finished my new bowl rack! YAAAYY! Now all I had to do was wait patiently for a bit longer and ask my DH ever so nicely if he wouldn't just 'pretty please' hang it on the wall.
I know many another woman would get the drill, masonry bit etc and do it herself but believe me when I tell you that from previous experience there wouldn't be much plaster left on the wall.
Well, enough of the chit chat, would you like to see it?

I'm pretty pleased with it for all its simplicity - but it does exactly what I want it to do in that space.

Also had time for another quick piece of wood work and paint and made this fall block set which is on the foyer table

You can see the wild rose hips in the pic too. They are beautifully colored in reds and oranges and add a little bit of fall to my home.

Finally, here's a stove top display - for the moment - I think it still needs something?

And yes! you are right- it's not a pumpkin, it's a pepper! - but looks the part - improvising is something I'm working on!

I hope you all have a great week
Best wishes
