My First Watermelon

I have been having so much fun this year growing vegetables that I have never grown before. We usually have tomatoes and this year they did so well. But this year I decided to plant some watermelon.

Over The Moon Linky party

Welcome to Over The Moon Link Party

We are dealing with all of the rain from Alberto. It had heavy rain this morning and high winds, but now the sun has come out but we still have the wind which is great since it will help to dry up all the water. 

No camping this weekend for us. Hope your holiday weekend isn't rained out.

Giving New Life to a Cracked Chair

I bought this chair many years ago. I have always been a sucker for old chairs. This one needed someone to take it home and that would be me. Although I bought this before moving to Florida 7 years ago, I still remember when I bought it. Strange, I know. 
Eclectic Red Barn: Old Chair with cracked seat

I went to a farm house sale and bought a few things and this chair was sitting there. I loved it but the seat was cracked. The owner said I could have it for 50 cents. How could I turn it down? I knew one day I would fix it. It kept getting moved into the background until a few months ago. (Can you believe that I didn't fix it for almost 7 years?)

I glued the seat together and clamped it. To make it even more secure, my husband added some round washers over the crack, on the under side so that it would not come undone.
Eclectic Red Barn: Cracked chair seat

Once it was glued and dried, I sanded the chair. 

Eclectic Red Barn: Glued chair seat

Now to paint it. I used an antique white chalk paint. I liked it but thought it needed a little something so I painted a couple of stripes on the seat - two narrow ones and one fatter one. 
Eclectic Red Barn: Painted stripes on chair seat

This chair has to be the most comfortable chair to sit in. It just seems to conform to your bottom.


Eclectic Red Barn: Fixed and painted old broken chair
I distressed it a little and I applied wax to the chair. I just loved it. 

Eclectic Red Barn: Before and After on the broken chair
Not sure why I waited so long to update this chair, but so glad I finally did.

Eclectic Red Barn: Updated Old Chair with accessories

It just seems to go in so many places in my home. You can't even see where it was cracked and it is so functional.

Over The Moon Linky Party

Hash Brown Waffles with Egg, Bacon and Cheese

We were camping this weekend and I wanted to make something special for breakfast. So why not make waffles out of hash browns, add eggs and some bacon.

I could put all the things I like into one dish. Sounds like a plan to me.



You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day or just a nice weekend.

It's time for a new giveaway at Katherines Corner and I'm joining Katherine and some of her bloggy friends to bring you the $75 Target Gift Card Giveaway

Honey-Mustard Pecan-Crusted Chicken

I love chicken and I am always trying new ways to serve it. The ingredients for this chicken are things you probably already have in your pantry. 

As many of you know, I always have pecans, since my brother-in-law runs a pecan farm, so this recipe was a perfect fit for me.
