I had to run some errands today so I took inventory of my painting supplies. I wanted to go ahead & get what was needed because I THINK I will have a couple days to work here at home this week, so I'm gettin' this room ready to paint! I think I will actually get started on it this evening....fill nail holes...pull things away from walls...wipe them then maybe tomorrow I can jump right into painting. We had several days of somewhat nice weather so my chores have lightened up just a tad bit...we let the fireplace go out since it's not so cold out & it's lookin' like it will stay that way this whole week so this seems the perfect time to do it!

I also want to let you know about a new little store I found! I actually found it while seaching online for a store that carries a particular type of embroidery floss. It's called 'Homestead Stitchery & Gifts'. Denni came up to go to church with me yesterday so we just made a little jaunt up to Macon in the afternoon! They carry a variety of home decor but also counted cross stitch patterns, embroidery blocks, dmc floss & a number of hand-dyed flosses. I actually bought the recommended floss for that punch needle pattern I bought a couple weeks ago! Nothin' to keep me from gettin' started now is there?!
We also went to an antique store & the Ben Franklin...and would you believe I didn't buy anything at either place for me! I did find a chocolate cookbook for just a couple bucks for our sisters kitchen.
Well, I guess that's about it for me today! If I don't get off this thing now I'll lose my motivation for workin' in this room! Hope y'all are havin' a GREAT Monday!!

I wish I had a store for stitchery in this area. I like to look at it in person. Colors online are never the same once you get them.

Wow - painting in winter is interesting. We don't as the fumes from the paint burn off in our natural gas heater and they give us headaches! Hope it works well for you.
