A Roo Pumpkin

Our weekend weather was absolutely gorgeous!  We spent most of our time outside doing some much needed yard work.  I did manage to squeeze in a couple of little projects and one was a little Roo pumpkin. 


I Mod Podged a rooster picture, that I found on-line, to the front of a crackled pumpkin that I made last year.  


I have my little roo pumpkin nestled inside a bird’s nest that had fallen from one of our trees.  


And then I started sanding a cedar chest that has been in our garage for over a year.  We purchased it at an auction for our daughter who has wanted one.  She has been patiently waiting for her father to refinish her cedar chest!  I decided if it was going to get done any time soon, I had better do it.  Her father didn’t protest either.  


My plans are to have it done by today!  We’ll see though, I have all three of my grandsons today and this evening Charlie and I are going to a hockey game…..GO CAPS! 

As always thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day.

  24. Hi Gail I just nominated you for an award see my blog:)

  25. Hello dear Gail,
    Did you finish the cedar chest? You do stay busy with projects, I need to get out of my funk and get busy! Good to hear that you go to Hockey games, although I don't, Hockey is a BIG thing in Canada and my city of Winnipeg just got it's national league Hockey team back, the JETS! They lost this weekend 5 - 1, to the Montreal Canadiens unfortunately, but they will get better. Winnipeg is a huge Hockey town. The Season tickets went on sale and within a few minutes they were sold out! That tells you something, eh?
    I hope you had a wonderful day,
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  26. I am in love! What type of paper did you use for this project? A roo pumpkin would be perfect for in our dining room. Love it!!
