This post is for Cindy.Sadly she has moved on to heaven and will be missed by her Children and Husband. She is a niece of Donna over at the best little blog all about junk. Funky Junk and if you want a idea she will have it. If you want to see wonderful photos...that to.But at this time hopes and prayers for her niece Cindy are what is behind this posting...My way of praying is go to nature.....so lets go outside  AND MY WAY TO PRAY FOR SOMEONE IN THEIR TIME OF NEEDS IS THROUGH NATURE....AND WHAT I SEE.....


 NOTHING IS A STRONG AS A ROCK, WITH MIXES OF GRANITE, AND MICA'S SHINE
 THE COLOR OF PINK QUARTZ WAS USED TO FIND GOLD IN THE MOUNTAINS
 ROSE QUARTZ PINK, COMES IN SHADES OF DEEP TO LIGHT TONES, AND FOUND ON HIGH PEAKS. THEY SHINE IN THE SUNLIGHT AND HIDE HIDDEN AND BURIED. SOME MIXED WITH GRANITE TOUGH AND MICA SHINE AND FRAGILITY. NOTHING IS As STRONG AS A ROCK, WE BUILD WITH THEM, DRIVE ON THERE BASE, USE THEN TO HOLD BACK WATER, AND HILL SIDES, WE CUT THEM AND WEAR THEM ON OUR FINGER AS A SIGN OF OUR LOVE..AND THEY CAN BE USED AS SYMBOLS.
 ROCKS ARE STRONG, AND SYMBOLIZE AT LEAST TO ME THE STRENGTH OF OUR SPIRIT
MAY WE ALL SEND CINDY's FAMILY, SOME OF THE STRENGTH OF A ROCK, STRONG,ENDURING.SO A PRAYER FOR CINDY's family along with Donna from Funky Junk...You can jump over to Funky Junk Interiors and Donna's facebook will give more detail.

TIME FOR A TABLE REDO
This table was a sweet mess, keeping it on a positive side(really a mess) and now a fun little piece 


 I love to doodle,so this little mess became a table. She was broken, as she really was suppose to be a tier'd table. but her top part got up and left a long time ago to parts unknown...and it had the worst job of a finish,I have ever seen...sanded off a goo'y mess. Then painted her ASCP old white. The top I painted the white then used those fun numbers peal and stick. Then I painted chalk board black,Valspar. Once done a little distress bringing out more of the white underneath. The top finial, SP? I found in Mark and Laurie's booth....perfect solution to fix the screw poking up(the second level remember) I had fun after I seasoned the chalk board. Always rub chalk on to help alleviate any thing being set into the chalk board. 
,
 I think she is a pretty little table and considering her sorid past. You like? I played with the chalk and drew on the hour and minute hands and the doodle and Don't write on me all for fun and will wash off. After taking the Pic I tied a burlap ribbon around the finial and tucked the crayon chalk in
 I love those legs,but I think she needs feet, but I think just some little tabs.
 I don't know what my fasination is with clocks, and liking to do time pieces. Before I started my blog, I had a grouping of little clocks...and I sold every one of them. The little dresser I did using clock faces from Karen at the Graphic Fairy. I just think the look can have so many> between the line meanings..
Ok, I guess I should be a good blogger and show the before pics...so beware not  pretty, not one little bit...



Ok the back left corner,leaning and then the legs base,and the part that would have held the second layer. The old sewing basket will get a makeover one of these day. The corner of the bed, sad Grandma Kat as her treasures, my son and family are moving...Texarkana ,,,,my son got a great job out their. Using his training from his Marine 8+ years duty. So the bed will become Alexandria's bed a sweet little twin bed. with pretty lines.I will paint in a Deep Teal tone(a color from the movie Brave. My grand kids are all characters each. I will miss the only  40 minute drive. 

Thank you to those that leave comments,I try to respond to each and to my newest followers...yippeee I am over 50,,,,O crap so am I....
