Summer Flowers

Our butterfly bushes

I did some flower moving this summer and hope next summer it pays off. I thought I took more pictures but I couldn't find them on my phone.

I have no idea what this is but I let it grow thinking it would turn into something nice. I finally cut it down.

Patriotic Makeover

A couple years ago I bought this cross stitch at a thrift store. It was matted in a frame and just needed some priming up. I unfortunately did not get a before picture, I was too eager to get it out of the blue mat. I tea dyed it, painted a smaller frame and now it make me happy!

Patriotic Pinkeep Swap

Wendy from Ravenwood Whimzies held the swap and she was also my partner. Isn't this the cutest patriotic mouse pinkeep? I love it! Thank you so much Wendy!

I'm making Wendy another pinkeep because in all the craziness of end of school PTA, Girl Scouts, band concerts and working concerts for band trips --I didn't read through the rules.

Spring Swap Goodies


My spring swap from Donna was all wrapped up in this pretty paper.

This doll~ I love! Look at her little basket with a stitchery inside. The bigger basket with cross stitch on it will be hanging soon.


Another cross stitch goodie, a sweet chick in a nest, the box had jelly bellies in it.

Where did March go?

I turned another year older on March 24th! I ate wonderful Mexican food twice to celebrate. We went to New Orleans as chaperons on my daughter's Marching Band trip. It was fast and fun. Here is our 1st day pictures.

Amy entertaining herself on the bus trip down.  

Our first stop was Oak Alley Plantation.

And then it was on to the swamp tour~~

I need to add the rest of my pictures to Facebook, I'll be back!
