All right, it's time to get back up to speed!
In the last 2 weeks I....

got into a car crash!

 I was hit by a car running a red light.

It was a full speed smash to my door, no brakes involved.
(No kids in the car, just me thankfully!)
Considering how fast they were going, my Yukon sure can take a beating!
It's totaled though.

Aside from that, I enjoyed many a movie over the break.
We saw, in no particular order...

Loved it!
And I loved Jeremy Renner too.

I fell asleep 10 minutes in.
Not because it was boring but because it was so late.
My husband loved it more than the first one.
Must try again!

This movie was particularly so-so
But I will tell you that I would watch it 10 more times 
because I might have a cougar crush on Zac Efron.
And he was great!

I really liked this movie.  
It keeps a slower pace so don't take your kids to it.
But I love a great true story.

I still have not stepped foot in my sewing room.
It needs to be cleaned badly from being the Christmas wrapping station.
Instead, I have been working on these gems...

Can you see the potential???
Can you?  Can you?
This dresser is (was) super un-loved!
I inherited it from some moving neighbors who thought of it as junk.
It looks pretty fab right now.

And for little miss S...

I got this little beauty from a local antique shop for a STEAL!
Truth be told, this dresser doesn't even need anything done to it.
It's in perfect condition.
But no, I can not resist!

I am almost done with both of them so stay tuned.
And eventually I do have plans to get back to my sewing room, I swear!


  1. Lu....I'm so glad you are ok. There are some crazy drivers out there and I hope they were ticketed. Thanks for the movie reviews. Looking forward to seeing your dressers when you have them completed. Happy New Year!

  2. So glad you are okay! It must have been scary.

    Love your finds from the antique store and I can't wait to see what you do to them. I'm drooling in jealousy!!!


  3. wow!, glad to hear you are ok! take care. And happy New Year!

  4. I am sorry you went through that. I can't wait to see what you do with those gems too. All those movies are on my want to see list.

  5. i am soo glad you are ok! what a scary crash and what a blessing that your kids weren't with you!
    i have to say i totally have crush on Zac also. oh my gracious he is babe-a-licious!
