Monday Made It and Make it, Bake it, Sew it, Grow it!

Monday Made It and Miss Nelson's Erin Condren Giveaway!

This summer is going by way to fast!  My school projects are not finished, but I thought I would link up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics and show a home project. I am also linking up with Miss Nelson from - Run! Miss Nelson's Got The Camera! and her Erin Condren Giveaway! I did not like the before mirror - way too dark! My Living Room does not get lots of sun - so I need to lighten things up!
Mirror - before
After using a deglosser and sanding, I painted the mirror white (not bright white.) I then roughed it up and wiped on/off some bronze glaze. I like how it turned out, but my pictures are terrible - really need a new camera!

I love where I live and a giveaway!

I love where I live! So lucky to live about 5 minutes away from beautiful beaches... This is vacation to so many and home to me! 

I just realized that so much of my summer has flown by and I have not thought much about school. I have been reading, visiting with family, teaching Vacation Bible School, and sitting at the beach! I have done a few house projects, hauled kids around, helped my daughter with her babysitting job, and of course - doctors visits. I have also been following several blogging book studies. Next week, I plan to share some freebies and host my first giveaway - almost 200 followers! :)
