Things I am working on

I never seem to manage to work on one thing at a time, it seems to borrrring! I usually have multiple projects going on in various stages of completion. These four items have been base coated and are ready for some serious work. I love painting on boots so I'm anxious to get these started. I’m also anxious to paint the vintage kerosene can . I’ll share the history of that find once I post the finished item. Don’t forget what they look like at this stage, they will be much different when I post the next photo of them. I hope to have them done in a few days, at least some of them, but, I also need to finish decorating my house. I have the trees put up and decorated, all 5 of them. The garland is on the staircase, and the mantle is done… I think… I'm not happy with it but I'm losing steam and don't want to fuss with it anymore. I've changed out the rugs and kitchen linens with warm Christmas reds.

Speaking of the kitchen, there is also baking to be done. I'm making snowball cookies today; I'll be sharing the recipe with my blog friends. While speaking to my friend Cathy last night, she reminded me of a peanut brittle recipe I gave her a number of years ago. It's been several years since I’ve made some, I want to make it this year. Maybe I will share the recipe with you. It really is the best of the best peanut brittle recipe. It's been tried and tested and all the kinks worked out. Hmmmm, I might have to call Cathy back and get my recipe from her. For those who love peanut brittle, don't worry I will share the recipe.

Every year I say I am going to start these things early but each year I seem to be later and later getting them done. Maybe next year will be the year, I hope so. Once I figure out how to start early I will do a "how to" on it for you.

Thanks for stopping bye. I live in Maryland and the snow is still coming down and we have about 10" already and its only 9;30 in the morning. It's supposed to snow all day and end sometime over night. We didn't get much snow last year so i guess old man winter is making up for it this year.

Stay safe.
Hugs Pam
