Fair Winds and Following Seas ~ Tuesday's Treasury List

In 10 days we will celebrate my husband's Navy career in a retirement ceremony with friends and family.  The Navy has been a part of our lives for over 26 years ~ it's hard to say goodbye, but exciting to think about the future.  We've been proud to call ourselves a Navy Family. I found these items on Etsy that reminded me of my husband's remarkable service to our nation.

Yesterday was my husband's last day of going to work in a uniform. The Navy has been our life for over 26 years ~ I thought this Treasury List was fitting today.

Guess What I've Been Up To.....Another DIY Project for Sure!

 It's been a very busy weekend.  I have started three different projects and have one almost complete.  We are getting close to our busiest back to back weekends in a very long time and I want everything at home to be perfect.  So, that means lots of DIYing  to get ready for all of our children, their significant others, and friends and family.  We have our second oldest's college graduation followed by my husband's retirement ceremony from the Navy.  I am one happy mom to have all the kiddos under one roof for an entire week!!

I love cities and I love their skylines. There are some amazing artists and photographers at Etsy.com that transform those skylines into amazing art. Click the images below to visit the talented Etsy artists and their shops. My favorite skyline is my very own city's skyline ~ San Diego. What's your favorite skyline?

Old is New Again ~ Coffee Table & Side Table Re-Do!

My New Coffee Table!!

I finally got to a project last weekend I had been wanting to work on for years.  Honestly, I have hated 
disliked the finish on our coffee table and end tables from day two.  We bought them in 2000.  You know the popular finish of the time, a light honey pine.  Everything was honey pine ~ tables, chairs, kitchen cupboards (we have those too:), bar stools, headboards, dressers....I could go on and on.
