Progress has begun

We first ran across this house last year--I posted about it the first time here...and I did a second post that included a photo of it here. Well, as you can see in the above has started on it. I bet it is sort of slow going. I hope I get to see the finished product someday. At least we know how to find it to check on it every now and then.
Lindy over at Mike and D's Life in the Hoosier State and Beyond tagged me to participate in this photo tag thing...she tagged me at my Time Stand Still blog, but I am doing it here. I try to keep my posts short and let the photo speak for itself.

Anyway, the rules are this:
  1. Open your first photo folder and select the 10th photo.
  2. Publish it and tell the details or story of the photo.
  3. Link back to the person who tagged you.
  4. Tag 5 friends and inform them.
With the times I have had to wipe out my computer, and reinstall my photos, then got a new computer and put my photos on there, they are so messed up in what order they are...I decided to go with the tenth photo taken with my first digital camera, my Canon Rebel. And the above photo is the result.

This is a coffee table my husband made our older daughter when she first moved out...she bought the slate tile and decided on how she wanted it laid out. My husband's friend gave him the oak wood....and this is the result. He also made her a simple little end table.

I am supposed to tag people to play along, but I know a lot of my blog buddies have done this, so am just going to invite anyone that wants to join the fun.

It's so good to see the house being renovated! Yes, keep us posted, please.

Gorgeous table! Roger is quite the woodworker, that's for sure.

Your husband is very talented. It's beautiful! Maybe the people who are redoing the house are "paying as they go".
