Keeping Busy

Hey y'all! Sorry I have been pretty much MIA lately. To be honest I have been in a blogging funk lately. I have not felt as if I have anything inspiring or interesting to share. Do y'all go thru those times as well? I have been blogging for almost four years now altogether so it stands to reason.

To be honest I have just been in a funk over everything really. I am trying to get out of it though and be inspired again. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that I have no idea if we are moving or staying come summer time. I hate the unknown! As a result I just have not been into doing much of anything and questioning if I should even be doing anything. And to top that off The Hubster has been working 16-18 hr days thus we only get to see him for maybe an hour or so a day. He has not been sleeping well either since he caught cold which means I have not been falling asleep till after 2 am so that makes for a not so spriteful mama. We were super excited though that we got to spend all day today with him. He has been working weekends too!:( Please don't take it as me complaining because I am not. We are very thankful he has such a wonderful job and that we do know he will be home every night! It just is tough thats all.

So with all that said I am TRYING really hard to get out of my funk. To do this I have been hunting down my next furniture piece to make over but so far nothing. I have very high standards so that makes it a tad tougher to find just the right piece. Last week was a semi decent week though on the furniture hunt.

I went to go and look at a bench a lady had for sale and it ends up she is getting ready to move out of state and was selling a ton of her stuff. I purchased the bench which I will share in another post and then this here chair. Yes, I know I already have two other chairs to conquer and another one waiting for the finishing touch but this one is an easy redo to hold my customers over till I can get the more extensive ones redone. Oh and just wait to see what else she agreed to sell me! I was super excited even though I spent most of the money I made off of Antoinette. That is the way it goes though.

In between bargain hunting I managed to get a few new chalk boards made to take out to the cottage. This is one of the larger ones.

I can't make these fast enough and have actually tried finding out how to order frames wholesale but no such luck yet.

So there ya have it. Nothing all that exciting but I am here and I am trying. Hope your weekend was a grand one!


  1. Love, love, love your chalkboard frames! So pretty. Glad to see you again!

  2. I have been dealing with what I always call the winter blues and then my fibro is flaring so it dumps even more blues into my life. Spending time outside and in the sun shine and that has helped. Thrift shopping has always helped me get out of the funk.

  3. You beat me to the punch I have been in the same funky mood. I haven't blogged or done much of anything inspirational for a couple of weeks. I know you will pull out of this. You are a fabulous re styler and I can't wait to see your up coming refinished work.

    Enjoy your week!!!

  4. Love the chair and the new chalkboard, Pamela! I never see chairs this nice, although I am usually only looking at Goodwill and Salvation Army. My local antique mart hasn't had anything that has caught my eye. This particular mart puts them out there where they NEED to be transformed.

    The funk hits everyone. Sometimes I have nothing to post about, but then again it might be a week where I just don't have any projects going on. I think it gives us a break, so I don't feel too bad when it hits. I know about the being up in the air with moving! Before we moved last year, two years before we went on the market and I had just about everything packed up at that time. Hopefully, you will find out soon enough so that you know what's going on.

  5. I read your post to my hubster. It could have been me writing it! Well except for the cold thing.

    Love your new chalkboard!

  6. Been in kinda a funk too. For me it's always related to the weather, I just find it harder to get motivated when it's cold outside. I LOVE the chair, I'm always so jealous of your great finds!


  7. I can totally relate! I have been in a blogging funk due to my move from Ohio to Houston, TX. (AND my hubby working non stop) I was cranky about it and want to always have something positive to say at DoingLifeBeingTiff. Your honesty is refreshing... cuz lets face it life isn't always perfect. :) Hope this time of uncertainty goes quickly and you find those treasures waiting for you. Have to say... now that I am settled... I am enjoying adventures in a new land.

  8. I am glad to see you, the funk will pass. you are a very creative person and with creativatiy come being stuck sometimes. great chair I know you will change it into something even more fab.


I love when ya stop by so leave me a comment if ya have some time! I always try and respond but sadly enough sometimes I am unable to return the love due to noreply blogger status.
