Last month was a busy month getting a jump on cleaning up our yard after winter (between MANY rain showers), pruning trees, weeding flower beds, and getting veggies started indoors for our first vegetable garden.
April also brought a quick visit with my dad and his wife who generously delivered some old furniture from my grandparents' basement (all to be refinished some day), and a visit with my mom and her partner over the Easter weekend.
Oh yes and there was a weekend trip to visit family as well! We visited with my sister and her partner, celebrated a friend's bday, headed up for lunch with my dear gramma and one of my aunts, and last but not least, took Matt on a walking tour of one of my favorite old neighbourhoods where I lived for several years.
In addition to visits with family, a week in April was spent doggy-sitting Karma, our tenants' lovely Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog (have I mentioned we have a cat?). Twas an interesting week...but if our kitty Yasha could talk, I'm sure she'd have choicer words to describe it! It was a great experience overall and Karma and Yasha took big steps toward becoming friends..or at least being the in the same room together peacefully! Here are pics of the fur babies:

Despite the April busyness I did manage to refinish a few pieces of furniture to finally share with you today. As you can see, this photo shoot took place on our back deck as I currently don't have a good place to set up a bed frame in our house.
Although these cute little pieces didn't originally come together, they share similar lines and in my opinion, look great together as a set (they will however be available for purchase separately as well).
If you're interested in these pieces, please click here for measurements and pricing. Update: *SOLD*
