Time began in a garden

I saw this sign that another blogger did at, A Cottage industry, and decided to try and make one for my little flower bed,, I'm not 100% pleased with it, but for the first time to try this method I think it'll do (except that hers is made from a headboard and alot cuter. )

If you cook it they will come ...

Amberly tried her hand at making homemade sourdoughbread and it was oh soooo good! This was her first time to do this. Yay,, You did good Amb!

Another one bites the dust ,,,

Tyler 8th grade graduation,, Still waiting on the report card to come in though,, I cant believe he's gonna be in 9th grade this coming up year.

Its getting hot out here,,

OH MY GOSH ,, it has been hot today,, Of course I was inside but still it was some kinda hot. And since our sprinkler broke and the grass looks like it hadnt had water all year,, I had to improvise,,, and make my own sprinkler..,, Works for me!!

Junk Party

This is a desk that the girls and I bought at a little junk salvage store in Florence on Hwy 49. I didn't sand it or anything just put a coat of white paint as a base coat and then painted it black. I'm still working on finishing the handles and distressing it a bit.. its very sturdy so I thought it was a good deal for just $20.

I'll post an update with the finished picture later tonight.. ( ugh,, I hate being late for a party!)

Old Glory and more

This is his regular fashion statement,, He likes boots with shorts,, gotta love it! Can you believe he is 14? And there's our big baby, Sandy, with something in her mouth of course. Think it was a pinecone. Ever since she was a puppy, she's always had something in her mouth,, alot of times it would be a sock. She's almost 9 (or is it 10??) years old.

A small visitor passing through yesterday,,

This is an el cheapo project inspired by this one over at Susie's blog ,, Hers is made of wood and looks great with the stained effect she did. I wanted to make one for the back porch but didn't have a pc of wood big enough so I used an extra thick pc of cardboard that I had, I painted both sides with a coat of white paint so that it wouldn't curl up. I didnt do the stain on mine and it doesnt have the right amount of stars but for just a few cents its a bit of back porch decoration that'll last for a little while and just in time for 4th of July.

Birthday cake for a sweet little 3 yr old named Mae that wanted a camper cake. First time doing a 3d object, and Okay, it does look more like a milk truck or an ambulance than a camper, but she loved it anyway.

Finally found an old window frame. I've seen them around lots of other blogs done up in all different kinds of ways. So I had been looking for one. I had found some here and there but didnt want to spend $15 or $20 that they were being sold for,, Well i waited and finally found one at a yard sale for $2,, two dollars,, Yay!! The people selling it left two pictures in it. I havent figured out exactly what I'm gonna do with it yet.

I'm a Kept woman

I got this in an email and thought i'd share it with everyone. This is so true for me ! !
I Am a 'Kept ' Woman

You see, there were a few times when I thought I would lose my mind, But GOD kept me sane. (Isa. 26:3)

There were times when I thought I could go no longer, But the LORD kept me moving. (Gen 28:15)

At times, I've wanted to lash out at those whom I felt had done me wrong, But the LORD kept my mouth shut.. (Psa. 13)

Sometimes, I think the money just isn't enough, But GOD has helped me to keep the lights on, the water on, the car paid, the house paid, etc.., (Matt. 6:25 -34)

When I thought I would fall, HE kept me up. When I thought I was weak, HE kept me strong! (I Pet. 5:7, Matt. 11:28-30)

I could go on and on and on, but I'm sure you hear me! I'm blessed to be 'kept '

Projects on the cheap!

I used this little sheet of letters I got at HobbyLobby ironed Amberly's initials on the purse (a garage sale find) and Melanie's initials on the bath robe (also a find) . . .

For this little sign I typed and filled the entire page with the saying "Laundry~loads of fun", Used word art to put the Help Wanted on top of that and printed it out,, I tried to stain/age it a little with some tea bags,, and then I used my ModPodge and stuck it to a scrap pc of wood ,, Its hanging in my laundry room.
This last project was inspired by Kara at Creations by Kara , She made the cutest letter project using a scrap pc of wood and making her own patterned paper. She has a blog that is definitely worth checking out,, so go say "hi".
