Two Weddings & A Farm Table

It's Been a Little While

Absolutely, mind blowing that my last post was 3 1/2 years ago. 
Times flies when you get busy with stuff.  Both of our daughters were married in 2017, we got another sweet grandchild and a step grandchild.  I had 6 months of health issues. And, just life happened. Ya'll know exactly what I'm talking about. 
I don't know if I will post monthly, weekly, daily (ha, don't see that happening!) but I am going 
to make it less than 3.5 years!  

So, let's see. What have I been up to besides all of the things that I mentioned already?  Still crafting and sewing and creating at Blue Creek Home - always, will as long as I can hold a paint brush and glue gun!

G-Man and I have a large, double booth and two single booths at Angels Antiques and Flea Mall in Opelika, AL. We are having fun but working very hard.  He goes to auctions and I junk locally and watch the close larger city ads for furniture and other good junk!  He started making farmhouse tables and benches a little over a year ago (never made anything besides a little box in middle school shop class) before this.  He watched a lot of You tube videos, played in the every growing sweat shop (aka our garage!) and spent the day with my brother, a gifted carpenter, who shared with him his own  design for the benches. I am proud of G-Man and very happy to say that we cannot keep farmhouse table sets on the floor.  To date we have sold over 20 sets! 

 Farm Tables

G-Man built a new apron and attached legs to this
this incredible table top - formerly an old table in a 
Sunday School Class

and here is one of his original farm tables & benches
Ha! no idea when I made the line on the photo!

I paint all of the furniture that we get except for the rare piece that even I won't touch with a paint brush. Everyone who flips furniture knows it is hard hard work. BUT, it is one of those things that is so exciting - you get to see the payoff for your blood, sweat and tears in a fairly short time. 

I talked about the two weddings we had in 2017.  Two daughters-two weddings-less than 2 months apart!  It was grueling but they both were beautiful - a backyard wedding and a farmhouse wedding.
I will post just a few photos of the weddings here and not try to play mad catch up all at once.

So, this is just a tiny bit of what has been going on in my life! 
We were very blessed to get two fine Christian men for our 
sons in law.  We also got a sweet granddaughter as well.
I will be back!
