Happy Homemaker In Texas

Each week I join Sandra at Family Corner for her party
Happy Homemaker 
Sandra provides the prompts-I add a few of my own

The Weather
 A weather type that starts with A- Awful musings of a 9 year old!
As I  am typing my grandson walked in and saw the prompt...
Our weather alternates between very nice 60's to colder days in the 40's.  I prefer the 60's!

Right Now I  Am
 Hoping the weather predictions are wrong for tomorrow.  
40's are predicted!  I hope not I want to work outside!

Fabulous Features from the Fabulous Party

My Grandma's old Cosco step stool gets a much needed DIY makeover, before and after using chrome spray paint and red vinyl to recover the seat! 

I had to choose this one today because it brought back so many 
memories for me.  My mother had a similar stool.  I remember sitting on it at the kitchen counter and helping her cook.
