A LITTLE SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT...

BLACK TIE BOOGIE...
TODAY IS MY DAY!

My half bath is getting a small make-over and since it's located next to the kitchen, the idea of combining a Black Tie Boogie project with a newly repainted antique shelf was a two-for-one winning combination.  If you've followed me for long, you know I almost always use my blog hop projects for utilitarian purposes.
I'm also cooking Thanksgiving dinner for 11 and week-end house guests which didn't leave a lot of time for any elaborate projects...just the necessary...can't have an ugly bathroom with company coming!


Cock-a Doodle-Doo!.............
Two Roosters for You
Black and White 
They're Outta Sight!

Made of Fabric Strips from my Black and White Stash
Beautiful Wall Art from Stuff Bound for the Trash!

The Fellas will look Manly beside this nice little black shelf
 And to Think, I did it ALL by Myself

So Good-Bye for Today,and Please Drive Safe


As you visit Friends and Family
on this Great American Holiday
THANKSGIVING TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT

Scott is showing you his "crow worthy" Super Hero toboggan and gloves.  He wanted to be in Grandmama's "blog thingy"  Isn't he adorable?  Bless his heart, he's been with me for 2 days because he was running a temp and couldn't go to school.


Madame Samm always comes up with such creative projects for us to Crow about
and
Vickie brought us all together quite nicely

PLEASE VISIT MY BLACK TIE BOOGIE FRIENDS
