Thrifted sheet and craigslist adventures

Thrifted this beautiful sheet. I also have this blue one. The past few weeks I bought a dining table on craigslist and I trying to sell mine on craigslist. Also bought a buffet table on craigslist and trying to sell my hutch on craigslist. The buffet needs work. Today I'll be sanding the buffet table. Can't wait to show you.

Working with their hands

It was such a beautiful weekend here. We had the windows open. Layla was the only one that got cold.
Teaching my girls to embroidery. Layla is so patient and desperately wants to learn. She did a great job.
On the other hand Ruby says "I already know how". So this is her project. Way to go girl.

Fun with grandkids on Saturday

The grandkids had a great time catching butterflies and caterpillars. They did release after they caught them. Most of the butterflies would let them come up and rub them while on the flowers.


Isn't that a cool caterpillar. Layla thought so.

View from my porch

I really love my Hens and Chickens this year. They have grown so much. Best of all my Aunt Mildred gave me 2 and now my pot is full. Love them. Love mums
This is my favorite thing of the summer. Lowes had these this year in lots of retro colors. They were $98. I really didn't want to spend that, so then they were $75. Still a little steep for me. Last week I checked their home page and they were $49. That's what I was waiting for. The store nearest me had limited quantities. We ran right over. Looked all over and finally there it was. The only one left and the exact color I wanted. It was very hard to put together. Thomas had to help me finish and here it is.( It even came with a little extra green paint for touch ups.

Where Have I Been?

I have been a little obsessed with making scrapbooks. I had started these years ago and finally finished them. Lori wants to do books for Layla and Ruby. I'm still organizing her other pictures and putting them in albums. I'm one of those people that truly get obsessed with one thing and can't do anything else until I'm finished.

My next obsession will be finishing two quilts that are completely pieced and need to be quilted. It just has been too hot to finish those. But now the days are getting cooler and it's time.

He loved those Teletubbies

Ruby's first day at school

Hard to believe my baby is going to school. She's one that we thought wouldn't want to go. On the way to school she told her Mom "I told you I'm not ready to go to school yet". She got 2 strawberries taken away the first day for being defiant. But all is well now and she is loving it.
