Hi everyone!  It's great to back after a few months break away from blogging.  As I told you in a previous post, I started a new job and it has taken up quite a bit of my time.  Now that I'm finished with orientation, I'm hoping to have more time for posts.

I love spring and the Easter Holiday.  Today I thought I would show you how I decorated our dining room for spring.

I'll begin by showing you what I placed on the top of our Hoosier cabinet.  I used things that I've had in the house from the past few years.  By using these items over you save a lot of money, and arranging it different from year to year gives the items a new look.

Hi everyone!  Today I am going to be sharing my - DIY Tufted head board.  I must say, I'm happy to be back after over a month of no blog posts.  It's been a little busy around our home.  My husband and I both got sick at Christmas.  I missed all the Christmas parties; and it took me a good three weeks to get back to normal health.  Two weeks ago, I started a new job; and I've been in the process of working more hours with orientation.

For those of you who have reading my blog for some time, you may recall our son and daughter-in-law got married a year and half ago. I shared the DIY wedding rehearsal dinner that we did for their wedding.   As a wedding gift for our children, my husband has made a piece of furniture.  The couple gets to select what they would like.  They usually find a photo of the piece of furniture they like; and my husband builds it for them.  While preparing for the rehearsal dinner, my sister and brother-in-law were talking to my husband asking if he would be interested in a walnut tree that went down in their grove.  Of course, we jumped on that offer.  There was, however, quite a delay when the tree went to the mill. While at the mill, the owner had a fire and had to rebuild his kiln....thus we had to wait for the wood to get milled for almost a year.

Once we had the wood, my husband went to work preparing the wood. He then built the wood part of the bed.  Once he had that completed, we invited our son and daughter-in-law to help us assemble the tufted part of the bed.

We made the tufted headboard using the same technique we used when we made our tufted headboard back in 2010.
