new starts

Well after a wonderful holiday with my family. 

 Loved the new table all set for Christmas.

 Okay REALLY loved it!

Baked a ton of cookies! I feel happy and satisfied. I'm also so ready to move forward. I took it all down the day after. I made Mr. Shabby nest help me clean the garage due to the fact since getting married a lot of my stuff sat in boxes in the garage. I put my foot down and insisted we move my couch in and move his out and put it on CL. It was a nice couch but just not my taste. One of those super puffy reclines on each ends man couch! Mine is floral with down cushions very girly! I know when my step son gets back from visiting his mom he will not like losing his total veg out couch. I know because my own son as soon as he came over stated, "Oh I loved his couch so much more!" Oh, well being the only girl in a sea of men I have to have to have some proof I'm here!

I bought this hutch a few weeks ago off craigslist for $40.00! So I think today I will start painting it. I don't know what it is but I love painted furniture! My hubby says God forbid we should have something wood in the house. I gave it a shot tried to live with it but it's just not me unless it's painted! So I will show you the results soon. Have a wonderful day!Traci
