Summer has me very busy...with four kids, three dogs and family visiting there isn't much time for blogging!  I hope to return after a few weeks!  Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Father's Day

This is my dad.  He has been gone for 14 years.  I miss him terribly!  He had been a teacher and an assistant principal. He loved teaching Science!   He was the strongest person I have ever met. Such a great example to me...patient, loving, unselfish.   He was such a great dad...always spoiling me and involved in my life.  Happy Father's Day, Dad.  This post is in remembrance of you.  I can't wait to be reunited with you in Heaven someday.  Through Jesus this will be possible!

Outdoor Cuteness

A *new* vintage throw from a garage sale. Makes my cheap Home Depot red chair look cozier!

I couldn't pass up this old table.  Too cute!  No room in my house for it, but out on the deck, it's kind of cute!  I may dress it up with some flowers.  That's a cute puppy dog tail in the bottom of the picture.

Chalkware Lamp

I decided that I now am a "chalkware" collector!  I have enough pieces now I think to be considered a little collection.  Here's my latest - a peasant lady lamp.  Her colors are muted and she has a pretty, delicate face.  Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Another Trash Treasure

I found this cart on the curb waiting for the garbage collector.  It is farmhouse/shabby looking - I cleaned it up and dolled it up.  Now I love it in my kitchen!
