Trunks and dinners

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  We did a good amount of family time. Friday night was my sister’s birthday and we were out to dinner.

Good news on the trunk front – The Lady went to her new home today.


I sold her to someone in one of my vintage groups. The woman seemed really happy with the trunk and thought the pictures didn’t do it justice (whew).  

Now I need to get working on the next one:


This is a tin clad trunk that John picked up for me on one his weekend trips a month ago. I was able to locate a trunk on his route and he got it for me on the way 😀  It’s been waiting while I finished up the bathroom (pictures to come soon). 

We had a nice dinner on Sunday at my parents house. John brought along a main dish since he isn’t eating meat – there was ham.  He made a quiche with smoked Gruyere and made the crust with potato instead of a pie crust, which was delicious!


Yum! All the food was delicious.



Time for games, too.



My sister was on Pinterest and made us these cute cookies to have with dessert:



Good times spent with family.  

Can I also say I am having way too much fun with my coloring book?



It’s very fun, I have to say. Wouldn’t it be nice to just color instead of working??

    “Wouldn’t it be nice to just color instead of working?” Umm, that’s kinda what I do now, only with cloth instead of paper 🙂 Why, yes, it is rather nice :))

    Very good news with your trunk business! That next one looks like its got a lot of work in store for you. That’ll just make your transformation even more impressive!

      Seriously – I need a sugar daddy so I can color and refinish trunks all day.

      And eat bon-bons.

      I also am picking up *another* trunk Monday night! 😀

      Happy birthday to the mister! I think he will love the book. I am enjoying way more than I thought (and I thought I would like it!).

    I love Easter food – it’s nearly all my favorite things! Plus, there’s not a lot of other stresses like with other holidays so maybe that makes the food taste better.

    John needs to do a guest post on this blog and give us the recipe for his quiche!

    Oooh, I’m excited to see the next trunk transformation. And you ARE having too much fun coloring. Wait. There is no such thing as too much fun.

    I’m with Helen – John’s quiche recipe, please. You had me at smoked gouda, but when you mentioned potato crust? I swooned!

    You are making the coloring books look fun. Love that they have evolved for adults; brings out your inner artist.

    Hurray for the Lady trunk finding a permanent home, and how fun to have another trunk to start working on. Can’t wait to see how it evolves.

      I will be asking John for the recipe link. He is now going to be the official baker of this quiche for weeknight dinners! The potato crust was really good, too. Not sure why we have never done this before.
