At Deborah's House

We enjoyed some time in Deborah's lovely country home after a day out in Cullman. We ate lunch at All Steak which is a local legend here in North Alabama. Next to Big Bob Gibson's BBQ, All Steak is probably the most popular restaurant in our area.

Here is a peak of the foyer where you wait to be seated. I was using my technical skills to teach Deb and Sus how to take a picture with your phone without having to stop to put in pass code etc. Daughter Amelia taught me that trick this week. Now I can snap quick pics of the grands without having to open my phone, find the camera app etc.

We had a lovely lunch, did some shopping at Finders Keepers, an antique shop. I did find an extra chair for the table at the little house. With my nursing school friends coming next weekend, I needed an extra chair as the benches only hold two people on each bench, comfortably that is.

I had not visited at Deborah's house in a while so I enjoyed seeing some of her new things.

I loved her lovely wreath at the front door. So springy!!

Her husband, Don, made this pretty for her.

A nice soft light when it is too hot for the gas logs.

And finally, this beautiful cross.

Deborah's  sister in law made this for her as a Christmas gift.  It is simply fabric folded and attached to a canvas with a rosette in the middle. Susan and I have decided to try to replicate it.  You know I need one for my cross wall.

At the end of the day, I was ready to face the real world again.  Today I am off to MOPs, then lots of errands to run!!  Tomorrow we will be celerating Baylor's 6th birthday which is today. The Hoover Grimms are coming to Decatur for the day!

Can you share the phone tip with s? I don't know how to do that and miss lots of perfect shots while I fumbled with my phone!
My niece made a fabric cross and she used a piece of wood instead of a canvas.
So you will be entertains at your cottage soon? How fun is that?

Linda, I will do a tutorial on that tomorrow morning. I thought I might be the only person who did not know how to do

It sounds like you have a nice weekend ahead of you with a birthday and all. Have a lovely time. And what a pretty wreath that is! I really need to take the Christmas tree off our front porch. :-)

The cross is absolutely beautiful...and all from a few folds in some fabric. I'd love to see yours when you are able to make it, Arlene.

I love the fabric cross! What a great craft idea! Thanks for sharing and I'll look forward to your tutorial tomorrow!

Mari said...

Pretty places and I love that cross. Be sure to show us the one you make.
Have fun with the Hoover Grimms and Happy Birthday to Baylor!

I wish Baylor a very happy birthday! I love the cross made from fabric and look forward to you sharing yours that you make.

Thanks for all the sweet comments friends. I am always looking for new crafts. I guess I should concentrate on finishing the ones I have
