Spotlight on Hubby
Since tomorrow is our wedding anniversary, I thought I would do a little post about my Hubby.....
I feel so blessed to be married to my best friend- who also just happens to be the sweetest person I know-but even better for me, he's hardworking and pretty talented as well. One thing that impresses me about him is that he always puts his best into every project, and if he doesn't know how to do something, he is always willing to learn or try something new.
Among other things, he built the sheep barn, chicken coop, and his tractor shed all by himself (well, I rendered as much help as I could...) along with some beautiful things for inside the house,
like my kitchen island-
Last summer, he dug an old hay wagon out of the weeds and restored it... I really wish I had taken some "before" pictures because it was literally nothing but a rusted hunk of metal but he turned it into a beautiful working piece of equipment-
After his surgery last month, he was pretty much out of commission as far as doing anything around here.... he was getting restless just sitting in the house so he started passing the days
cleaning and organizing his little workshop.
Here he is in his shop, along with one very nosy bulldog.
I have a special place in my heart for beautiful woodwork because my Daddy was a master carpenter...
as a little girl I can remember seeing all the gorgeous cabinets, tables, bookcases that came out of his little shop, as well as two of my most prized possessions-
when I was a teenager he made Mother and I matching jewelry boxes out of walnut wood,
a little one for me and a big one for her.
In the last few years Hubby has tried to learn as much as he could about woodworking from Dad,
and all of a sudden, it must be sinking in because he has really gotten into working in his little shop.
I think he's been bitten by the creative bug.....
He's spent the last couple of weeks working on some really neat little projects,
like this box for Lily's toys-
Look at these gorgeous box joints that Hubby cut on his router- and they fit together perfectly!
This was his very first attempt at making these....I'm so proud of him.
Lily is checking to make sure it's big enough to hold all of her toys.
(And probably making sure there's room for more if need be...)
The box isn't finished yet- it still needs to be sanded and stained... but once it's done I'll post some more pictures of it, and maybe by then he'll be working on his next masterpiece. *grin*
Happy Anniversary, Sweetie... and Happy Tuesday, everyone!
