Busy Week!!!

Busy getting ready for a 3-day craft show next weekend.  Then throw in my Dad's Birthday on Tues.  Turned 90.  Then today is our anniversary...38 years.  Where did that time go????  Took time to dig out a pic and here the scanner won't work. 

Sounds like everyone else is busy too getting ready for the fall/holiday season.

Loving this weather we are having.  No humidity.  Feels like fall.  Love it, but hate to think what comes after
that nice, leaf-falling weather.

A thank you to my new followers.  Love getting to meet new people. 

Well, must go.  I spend Thurs at my mom and dad's.  She makes lunch and then mom and I play games all afternoon.  Meeting hubby at a restaurant.  Then Monica will be here tonight for her last sleepover before she starts school next Wed.  We probably will only have weekends now for sleepovers.  And when there will be days off from school!!!!!

Power Washing and Woot-Woot

Hi again!!!!

Well, I had a picture and now it's gone from my files and I deleted it in the camera!!!.  Anyway, my husband was power washing the sidewalks and I just watched mesmorized for 15 min....maybe more....just watching how the power of water could clean so well!!!!  It looks like we have new sidewalks.  And with me having 10 thousand things to do, I'm watching him clean sidewalks!!!!

And, the good news....woot-woot.  The Ebensburg, PA Wal-Mart now has material!!!!!  They don't have the seasonal in yet, but hey, it's a start!!!!  I didn't see any Morning Glory fiberfill, but I just glanced as I was on a time limit.....husband with me!!!!!

Have a blessed Sunday,

Summer's Fleeting By!!!!!

Hi everyone.  Can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I last posted.  I received 3 makeover items last Sunday and wanted to get them finished up ASAP!!!!  Luckily, they weren't too hard.  Put a face on a doll.  Repainted a bunny and this pineapple!!!
This is how it came.  All one color with some gold and black showing and turning green in the crevices!!!!
Here's what I did with it.

The pineapple leaves are a dark green and I used a gold wipedown on them.  The other leaves have a black wipedown.  They're a lighter shade of green.  I sprayed just the pineapple today.  Will make it easier to wipe off the brown to show up the pineapple indents.
Sorry, took that pic with a light on, but you see the brown on the pineapple.

Want to thank the new followers I've gotten.  Thanks for following my little blog.  Not much goes on in my world.  I have no life!!!! lol

Getting ready for a 3 day craft show over Labor Day weekend.  Have sooo many projects started, just hope I can get them all done. 

Someone tell time to slow down!!!!!
