HOPE YOUR WEEKEND WAS AS GOOD AS MINE


You wanna hear about my weekend? There's not much to tell, but for me it was a good one. I'm joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday, and since I'm posting an itty bitty metamorphosis, I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday. I'm also joining Diane at A Picture is Worth 1000 Words for Second Time Around Tuesday. Whew! Do you think I might be a "joiner"? Okay, now I'm going to tell you about my weekend. Remember, I am easily entertained, so I'll understand if my weekend bores you to the point of clicking the exit button.








It isn't much, but I hope this $15.00 desk counts for an itty bitty metamorphosis and a 2nd time around:





Be sure to go get links to Blogville Events:

Monday:

Mosaic Monday, Little Red House;

Metamorphosis Monday, Between Naps on the Porch;

and Tuesday:

2nd Time Around Tuesday, A Picture is Worth 1000 Words.

Thanks so much for coming to visit, and thanks so much for sticking it out through my dull weekend. laurie

Oh Laurie I am always in awe of you- all the energy- and projects you get done then to show us them in mosaics and rhyme!!!

We had a little group this evening at our little beginnings of a church but will have a baptism in a few weeks with 3 people getting baptized!

Great post! Lots to look at... I really enjoyed it! I am doing a cotton post too... I was teaching my granddaughter about cotton and how it grows... we have fields of it all over too! It grows great in Arizona~ I really love that desk you found! So unique~
Have a wonderful week :)

Hi Laurie,
What beautiful fall colors, our leaves have all dropped and hubby spent the week-end raking. Your mosaics are just stunning and that table is really cute! I love how you put it to good use, I need one just like it to hide all my clutter. Hugs, Cindy

KBeau said...

Sounds like my kind of weekend, Laurie. Went to north Alabama on a girls trip on Friday to see the leaves, but I think we were about a week too late. They turned early this year. We did, however, have a wonderful time.

Robin said...

Your mosaics are wonderful, as well as your rhyme! So talented!

Stacey said...

Sounsd like a fun weekend! A little outside time, a little shopping, a little cotton field. :) Love your mosaics...I still haven't taken the time to figure them out.

Sue said...

Laurie, Your mosaics are just fantastic! What a fun way to chronicle all that you did over the weekend. Love the desk- did you do anything to it finish-wise? I DO like it covered like that! Am working on a refinishing project, myself. Hope to have it done by next week. Mr. S saw it in the garage when he came home and just shook his head. I think he was just jealous because he didn't get to go to the sale w/me! LOL
hugs, Sue

Love your weekend mosaic! We had a lovely weekend with nearly perfect fall weather. Nice change from the rain we got the last two.

susan said...

Laurie--Sounds like a good weekend to me. I can't wait to have grandchildren to watch play sports! Loved seeing the cotton--the farmers have had a tough fall, haven't they? LOVE the cloth on the desk. We went to Summer Ave on Saturday on the way home from a second trip to Sherwin Williams--the crazies are out in full force on the weekend :) Have a good week :)

It would probably get a vintage tablecloth at my house. These hands just don't have the talent to paint! Enjoyed the narrative!

mbkatc230 said...

I love your mosaics Laurie! One of these days I'll get around to trying one. And that desk was quite the find. I don't think your weekend sounds boring at all, it sounds like a lot of fun. Thanks for the comment and glad you liked the trailer. It really is the kind of movie that makes you smile and cheer. Think Mr. Hollands opus meet Ellington lol. Kathy

santamaker said...

SmilingSally said...

Laurie, You are so clever rhyming everything. What a fun-filled weekend you had!

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Laurie, thanks for your order! I must say that the sleigh is one of my favorites...I'll get it shipped out tomorrow. I sure did miss where you posted the fall frame. I'm glad you are enjoying it! I have not been able to blog alot lately, I've been making frames and arrangements and have just started decorating houses, it's getting busy! I have two christmas shows coming up soon too.

I love the little desk you redid, it turned out beautiful! Thanks again, Kristen

Connie said...

I am going to crown you the queen of mosaics in blogsville. Each one is so different from another.
Hope you are enjoying nice weather this week.
Nice work !

Laurie, Your Grands are so cute, and I am very tired of the leaves. They are beautiful on the trees, but when they fall, such a mess. Hubby and I both have allergies, from trying to clean them up, but today we got smart, and wore masks. Your desk is great, and I love the cloth you put over it. It has a lot of fuctionality. I have never seen cotton grow, looks like snow. You are so good at mosaics and poetry! Love Ya! Connie

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Sweet Laurie...

Love your post....and your make-over was fabulous....Someday, when the den is finished, I'll show my desk area...but for now......YIKES....No WAY! I need to hide stuff. :-)

Just guessing, the time spent with the grands was the BEST!....

Thanks for your good wishes...I just have to use one of the bloggers lines....I was happy to have it "behind" me...what an undignified procedure. :-)

Big hugs sweetie,
Spencer

My goodness Laurie! You sure have a way with words!! Cute post. Come on by for my Anniversary giveaway! Hugs!

Stickhorsecowgirls said...

Beautiful! Now that I've tackled that video insert thing (I am such a klutz at the computer!) I am going to have to try the mosaic thing...love your yard sale find. I would have snapped it up, too! C

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Good Morning Laurie,
You and hubby are welcome to come stay in my guest room anytime! Just get up to Wisconsin next summer! Yes, I do have 22 nieces and nephews just on my side. Our family is so large that we celebrate Christmas at a water park and then skip the present exchange. Have a great week, Hugs, Cindy

jeanne said...

Hello Laurie, I have visited your post in the past but not often. I loved your post in rhyme today. Very clever. Love the old desk and what you did with it. It looks great.

Have a wonderful evening.

Hugs, Jeanne
