Follow Friday ~ Fab Finds for April 22, 2016

NOTE: Fab Finds may be on hiatus next week. I’m in the midst of some rather large home improvement projects right now – tile and carpet installation, and fireplace remodel.

We have already had the tile replaced in our entry hall, as well as tile installed on our brick fireplace. New carpet will be installed the first week of May. There’s a lot of preparation that goes along with carpet installation, including removing all books from bookcases, removing and packing away items from the curio cabinet, clearing things out of closets, etc.

Also, we have a son who is getting married in June. Yay! I volunteered to make their wedding video. I’m in the process of gathering photos from digital files. I also still need to do a lot of scanning from photo albums for the video. Once that is finished, the happy couple will need to choose the photos they want in their video. I need to get my part of this project done soon so they have time to choose the photos in time for me to make the video. Whew!

So, with all of this in mind, I may or may not be able to publish my weekly Fab Finds post next week. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
