The Lazy K House

It's Christmas!!

Well...not really... but it sure looks like it at the Lazy K House in Lafayette, CA.
Saturday, October 20 is the Christmas Open House at the Lazy K. These pictures are just some of what you will see if you stop by for a visit. Lazy K sits next to The Orchard Nursery. There are over 40 decorated trees at the nursery. It really is an amazing sight.

My gang of winter girls and Santas.

There is a seperate room that I call "the Penny room". The inspiration for this room comes from Penny McAllister's line with Midwest. Lime green, red and white are the colors and you can't help but feel happy when you are in there.

If you are in the area stop by for a visit. The hours are 9-5 daily. The Lazy K House is at 4010 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Lafayette CA. (925) 284-4474.
If you would like to see more pictures of my work at the Lazy K please click on the "Pieces Available" on the upper right side of my blog.

Procrastination or Not Enough Time???

Are you a procrastinator?? I'm really...stop laughing...I'm not. Ok...well it does depend on what the issue is. For instance a while back my husband bought me this great little television for the kitchen.

I didn't procrastinate. I opened it right up, unpacked it, set it up on the counter and even plugged it in. Fuzz and static...Hhhhmmm...guess I need to call the cable company and get the cable hooked up.

That was Mother's Day. Procrastination? Guilty

I have this great jar I bought one day when I was out shopping with Donna.

I knew it would look fabulous on my island filled with something really cool. I brought it home, unwrapped it, put it on the counter and realized I didn't really have anything really cool to put in it. I'll have to work on in the meantime I put these fabulous Easter cookies in there. So what if that was April??

Procrastination??? Mmmm...jury is out on that one. I haven't found that really cool something yet so why bother to take those cutie Easter cookies out? I wonder if they still taste good.'s another one. Look at these fabrics. LOVE THEM! (the pic's don't do them justice...the ones inside the plastic are gorgeous) I bought them...let's just say "a while back". New duvet, curtains, pillows etc etc. Yep...the fabric still sits in the corner in my room. Procrastination? NO! Just not enough time!!

And this chair. I LOVE this chair.

I bought it at the flea market some time ago. Wouldn't it look great covered in white duck cloth? Ok...white duck cloth in my bedroom where my husband would for sure sit and read the paper...white duck cloth vs. newspaper get the picture.
Procrastination or not enough time???? Neither!! I just can't bring myself to cover it in white duck cloth and then have it be inked!

Aaaahhhh and back to the chairs at the island. I posted a while back about how my kitchen cabinets came out darker than they were supposed to so my island chairs didn't look good and I was going to paint them you have probably figured out...that post was a while ago and I promise I haven't been procrastinating...look...I've made progress. I sanded, primed, painted and painted again, then sanded, antiqued and sealed this chair. So what that it was 2 months ago and so what that the seat still isn't recovered. HEY!!! Gotta start somewhere. I figure by 2010 I might be done. Oh...the annual holiday party you ask? Sure, I'll still have it. I'll just put that black chair out in the garage and noone will be the wiser.

Yah gotta admit though...the black does look good!

The one place I never procrastinate...

I have been busy!! this weekend. I'm thinking I will work on those curtains in my bedroom, or maybe I will take down the flowered curtains in my sons room (my old studio) and sew up those baseball curtains I promised I would make him. Maybe I will sand and paint another chair and maybe...


I'm off to San Diego for a weekend at Legoland, Seaworld and the Raiders game...I'll do all that stuff another day...can you say PRIORITIES????
