A bit of this and that

Everything seems to be flowing smoothly this week. The bridal showers are over and we are now waiting on the weddings this summer.
How many of you have a wedding filled summer? I keep thinking that my generation is now passing on the torch to the next generation and new life will begin again in the next few years. I'm anticipating a lot of weddings over the next few years as my children start to settle down and marry and create families of their own. But more than just my children, my nephews and nieces will all be doing the same thing. At last count I have close to 40 of them :)
And before you ask, no I'm not feeling old. ;)
I'm feeling blessed and very lucky to be watching this from the outside now. (Till my daughter gets married that is...the story may change at that point)
My son showed up at the end of the last shower and my sister was kind enough to snap pictures all day long. This is my son and his beautiful bride to be. 
Then we had some fun and the brides mom and I sat and invited our "babies" to sit on our laps. Remember showing off your kids on your lap? I do...
Sooo we recreated that moment. the effect isn't quite the same, but it was fun and we had a lot of laughs doing it. :) 

Soo eventually people started clearing out and I was able to get out of my "good clothes" and headed back to my workshop to snap some before pics. 

 I've worked on and finished other pieces since the Striped table...and I will share those in another post. But for now I want to share this wonderful dresser I picked up off of kijiji.
 Isn't he purdy? Yes, it feels like a "he". I don't know why, but I just accept these sorts of feelings.
 Three drawers fit inside the top behind the doors. I have so many plans.
 Loving the detail...ohhh I can't wait to get to work on this one :)
And of course the legs...I love love love these. 

But for now, I'm relaxing with my husband at the cottage for our long Canada day weekend. 
Wishing all my Canadian friends a wonderful Canada Day. 
And for all my American friends, enjoy your Independence Day!
