molly dog turns TWO!

It's hard to believe that I've almost had her for 2 years.  She was born Feb 22nd but I took her home April 15th (she was a late birthday present from the "at the time boyfriend")  By far one of the best gifts I've received yet.  Molly is the light to any day and she brings me so much joy.  With D working out of town during the week - she keeps me company!  We go on walks, eat popcorn (one of my all time favorite snacks and Molly's too, ha), and just hang out.  I love her.

The day I picked her out!

Her first meal at her new home!

My 2 loves!

She was so tiny - she even fit in the console of my car (she did that all by herself)

 Molly loved playing with pine cones!

Before her first hair cut!

She loved her travel carrier.

Happy FIRST Birthday, Molly!

My name changed!  It's now Molly Shackley! 

 Merry Christmas 2011!

I love walks!

 Happy Birthday, Molly!

Re-purposing a Shutter

D and I decided to hit some antique shops this past weekend in Olathe.  We've both been wanting to "work on" something and decided to go for it!  We found ourselves a couple projects:  The first being a shutter and the second is on old Barn window from 1952 (that I will blog in the next week).  The shutter is finished so thought I'd share.

Yes, we turned it into our mail organizer.


Doing some sanding! 

Used a little primer!

After a little paint we've got the finished product!

 We did some antiquing to the shutter!
