A Tribute to Mammaw

She would be so proud!

When I tell people that by the age of 4, I was frying eggs, making tuna fish salad, and baking, they look at me like, "sure....whatever". Well, if you doubted, here is "mini-me" cooking up some pancakes, just after she fried up some eggs. I know that Mammaw is smiling!

Project: Kitchen

To give us a little more counter and storage space, my handy-dandy hubby is building a kitchen banquette (that's the fancy word for "nook"). I basically printed out a picture I found online, and the next day Eddie ripped up the baseboards and project mania began at the Fergs. He isn't quite finished yet. It will have a butcher block countertop. Here are some pictures of the process.

If you are wondering about the painted designs on the wood, these were pieces that Eddie laid the headboard he made for Kinsley's room on when he painted it.

Notice the bead the bead board!

The back side will be shelves.
Primed....More storage under the seats.

It just needs a countertop and some paint. It's wonderful having a handy-dandy husband!

Making Garage Sale Memories

Chair - $5.00
Tree - $4.00
Frame - .25
Tin Box Thingy - $1.00

Me stuffing all of these things into my minivan while some stranger man watches in disbelief.....PRICELESS!

Well, it did all fit. As we were driving home, Eddie called & Averi was talking to him, and she goes, "Daddy, here talk to plant.....Okay, what did plant say?" I'm sure she was feeling a little bit like Tarzan.
