What have ya been doing over the summer? ~~ Part 1

Hello Friends!
I must say I haven't really posted anything over the summer ~ I can't believe how fast time flies!!!
I been kinda busy as most of you are too.
I've been wanting to post but just can't seem to find the time.
I've been working more at the restaurant and just can't seem to fit everything in.
So because I'm so far behind I figured I'd break this into parts so as not to overwhelm you.

So over the next couple of posts I'll be sharing with you what I've been up to and hopefully I'll catch up with myself.  smile...

Here it goes ~ 
Flowers and such ~
I've been playing with flowers and trying to beautify my deck ~

I found the chair for $2.00 at a rummage sale!


I've been adding some perennials to the flower bed and trying to keep up with the weeds!

I got this Beauty from my daughter ~ Amanda

So peaceful ~

Love inpatient's!

My hydrangeas have been blooming up a storm!

I love how the petals of balloon flowers form a star before they open ~
 lovely ~

Love to add some garden art!

Cone flowers ~ one of my favorites!

Watching the bees ~

and getting stung by them ~ poor Chewey :(

Been building a garden shed ~
It's almost done!

It has been hot and humid ~
Then comes the storms ~

Today however we had a beautiful day ~ fall is starting to peek around the corner.

Made some special order signs for a dear friend ~

This one is my favorite!

Took a punch needle class at Primitive Gatherings.
Now if only I could find the time to make more!

And we've been eating a lot of strawberries ~ YUMMMMM!

I'm going to end here.
I hope I didn't bore you!

Until Next Time

This beauty rolled in at the restaurant.

What a wonderful way to repurpose/reuse ~ Truly a work of Art!!!

Love it!!!


I would be proud to cruise around in this Beauty!

Did you notice the sun visors???  
Yep old license plates!

I'm so glad they stopped in ~ I really enjoyed looking at this fun filled ride!

Until Next Time!

A Thoughtful Heart

Hello Everyone!
It's been a while again ~ sigh...
I just can't seem to fit everything in a day and the days just seem to pass so quickly.
I been so busy with everything and anything.
I will promise to do a post soon and catch you all up.

But ~
I wanted to share a wonderful surprise I got in the mail the other day.
Lee from Falling Star Primitives sent me these wonderful goodies.
A pattern called 
"The Red, White & Blue"
Lee just released this new pattern on her blog and I fell in Love with it and commented as such.
I just love that she added a primitive flag to the stitched pieces.

Along with that pattern she sent another beautifully wrapped package.
Isn't that the cutest wrapped package???
I just hated to open it ~ but I knew there was going to be a wonderful surprise inside.
(even her note cards are sweet!)

Inside was one of her newest designs called ~
 "Friendship Smalls" 
This one has a pattern for a framed piece and two cupboard tucks.  
Such wonderful patterns indeed!

Inside the note card she thanked me for being her most faithful follower.
(Lately though I don't really feel like a faithful follower as much as I try.)

Thank-You sooooo much Lee for the wonderful patterns and the thoughtfulness that came from the heart.
I truly Love them and I'm hoping to stitch some of them up soon!

If you love to stitch and your looking for some nice primitive patterns stop over and see Lee from
Falling Star Primitives

You won't be disappointed!

Thanks Again Lee
You truly are a nice friend to have here in blogland.
