US west


My life is very boring so I haven't had much to post about. However Hubby and I are considering going out west sometime this year. We're looking at the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Mesa Verde, LA, The Meteor Crater, as options.

Has anyone been to any of these and have pointers, tips, little known attractions in the area they can recommend?

I would love to hear any feedback you have regarding the area.

Headboard progress....

Hubby and I were able to work on the headboard Sunday. It's finally starting to look like it might be something.....

So far I like it. A few more finishing touches, and some stain. If it looks ok stained - great. If not, I'll paint and age it.

So far we have $19.94 usd in it. Good thing I'm a hoarder. Oh, did I say that out loud? Oh well, you probably guessed that by now.

I have scavaged and collected all of the trim, boards etc. over several years. I can hardly wait to get it finished. Then I need to redo the room to go with it :)

It's laying on it's side, it's getting top heavy. The bottom board you see will be behind the mattress, so it won't really show.

I'll be back with more pics once I get it stained.

Have a great week.
