A Busy Monday Ahead

Good Morning!  So far it looks like a sunny day here in N. Calif.  Glad to see it, we did get a few inches of snow over the weekend but maybe the sun will melt it today.  My weekend flew past in a whirlwind.  Saturday I spent working on a Memorial announcement for a friend that sadly passed away a week ago today.  It should have been an easy task and yet my printer is being rebellious and is doing it's own thing. But I am stubborn and will make it bend to my will! We also got the top put on the dining room table we built.  Pictures to come soon.
Then Sunday we had our Christian meeting in the morning and lunch at some friends' house afterward.  The sun shone warmly and I soaked up as much as I could. 
Today I am trying to get as much done as I can before my nephews arrive.  Being 3 yrs and the other 18 months they take my entire attention and I get little else done but I just enjoy the moment and their company since the little rascals grow up so fast. 
Here are some photos of another garden bench I have built and painted.
This bench I made shorter, 36" wide instead of 48".  I painted roses, iris, ivy, birds and bugs on it. 

Here is a link to a plan to build, these are quick and simple to do. Garden bench

I have a modified plan too to share but that is for another day.  Ta ta for now.  I am thinking of putting some decorative painting tutorials up one day.  Drop me a note and let me know what you think.
