I Just Had To Try This One

It took me awhile to embrace the Pinterest craze, but, BOY, am I glad I did!
Can you believe the inspiration waiting for you each and every time you log in?
Well…when I saw this Kodak Moment dresser from, 


I  just knew I had to give it a try.
I found the perfect dresser a week or so later.
Here’s my version of this great piece.
Thank you so much Bliss Ranch for this inspiration and fabulous project!
I love the idea of incorporation your passions into the pieces that you live with every day.
I will continue to go to my Pinterest page whenever I have a few spare moments….it never fails to inspire.
Aren’t there just so many talented and clever people out there? 
Lucky for all of us.
thanks for stopping in today,

Garden Proud

I admit it.
am grinning from ear to ear.  Our garden is looking so fabulous this spring.
Last year our very good friends moved out of state.  It was very hard for us.  They were our first friend here when we moved four years ago.  We were both “outsiders” in a pretty tight knit community.  Our kids were the same age…they all got along.  It was wonderful.  We shared, we laughed, we cheered our kids on at sporting events and we just connected.
They were avid gardeners.  There yard was so beautiful and I always admired it.
When they knew they were moving, they invited us to come over and dig up hundred of flower bulbs.  YEP, hundreds.   We dug and dug and dug some more.
I brought them home and started putting them in the grown all over our property.  I knew I would reap the rewards 100 fold when spring finally arrived.

Well, here they are..

And, yes, I’m feeling very “garden proud”.

Thanks for letting me share.

Hope you’re loving spring as much as I am..

Summer Camp

So glad you stopped by today.  I don’t know about you guys,j but I’m ready for a vacation.  My family and I are headed off for some much needed sun and relaxation.
Since I’m in summer vacation mode, I decided to use the inspiration found in Country Living magazine (above e) to create a fun CABINS sign. 

Here’s how it turned out. 
I started with a recycled piece of wood backing from an old vanity mirror.  Love the shape!
It would make a great large wall piece for a lot of different spaces.
These type of signs just evoke happy childhood memories of “going on vacation” and road trips…
I hope you are getting in the “vacation” frame of mind and enjoying this special time of year.
See you guys when I get back (with a tan, hopefully).
