The Final Countdown

Well, in about 24 hours my youngest daughter leaves for ther freshman year at college. I can't believe the time has come so quickly. This past week has flown by and it's almost time to let go. I'm a little sad about her leaving as she keeps me busy and on my toes. I'll miss her so much. Her laugh, sense of humor, her friends popping over and her messy room. ( well, maybe not the messy room). It's going to be a new feel for my husband and I, being alone and all.. but we will manage somehow..:)!! So, here is a look at my messy living room with all Hannah's things laying around waiting to make there new home at college. I'll let you know how an empty nest feels soon.

More Re-purposing of every day items

We had a small get together on Sunday as a last hurrah for Hannah going off to college. It was all planned to be outside, but of course , it rained!! So we moved the whole thing into my house, which is a very little house. It was fun and cozy and we had great conversation and laughs.
Here are a couple of things I pulled together to have outside around the eating area to freshen things up. I didnt' want to use my glass vases, so I came up with this idea and it was perfect.
The wine bottles, have also found new life as oil lamps.. I love these!!
