And this is what I look like after riding it....
I don't think you can tell just how sweaty I am in that picture, but I am pretty darn sweaty. What you can see is how happy I am. Chris brought it home Tuesday evening and I immediately took it out for a ride. The hills around us nearly killed me, but it just felt so good to sweat like that, and to ride again. Even though it was a 100 degree day, I was creating my own breeze, and loving it. (Please note this picture was taken after I removed my helmet- I did in fact where one!)
This week has been somewhat chaotic, and slightly rainy, but I was able to get in one more ride yesterday after dropping the kids off at VBS. And if it's nice after I get home from the Barn Sale today, maybe I will get another in! Remember to stop by and see me there from 10-5!
Anyhow, this was another "smack-me-in-the-face-with-your-amazing-talent-and-make-choosing-faves-REALLY-hard" kind of week. But I consider that a good thing!
First of all, I LOVE this woodland whimsy dresser SO much from Dear Emmeline! LOVE love love! I love it so much that next week I am bringing Jessica, the blog author, breakfast in the hopes that I can steal it. Muah ha ha! If I can't slide it under her nose, at least we can hang out and eat and let the kids play!
I always love a good map project, and I think this little round table from Lake Cottage Dreams was just perfect for it! So sweet!
OK, you guys! This hutch was once a bookcase! It was painted, turned upside down, and molding was added and now look at it! Way to go Thistewood Farm! Somebody was using their noggin.
My mother in law pinned an armoire-turned-liquor cabinet for me the other day and she said it was an excellent use of furniture. My response to her was that anytime a piece is repurposed to store wine or liquor, it was an "excellent use." Bliss Ranch, excellent use of a dresser, my friend!
I always love a good pedestal table! This dining table from Between Blue and Yellow is SO pretty! Love the wood top and the beautiful base!
Reposhture shared this creative use of a garage door panel.... as a bench! Seriously amazing thinking out of the box there.
Upcycled Home Blog shared this amazing chair! I could not leave a comment as I do not have a wordpress ID, but I am telling her now..... LOVE it! the color, fabric, SHAZAM! (FYI, this was linked from her blog and NOT her etsy shop which is why it was allowed)
Apple House Revival shared this amazing fainting couch! LOVE the color, the piping, the skirt! Makes me want to faint!
Three Mango Seeds showed off this glossy red bamboo table and I have some serious glossy red bamboo envy going on. And now you do, too. You're welcome.
And NOW, now you see.... amazing projects people! Keep them coming- you guys are so inspiring! Happy weekend!
