I browse Pinterest. And I see things. I'm not crafty. But Pinterest makes me think I am. And then I get the crazy idea that I can actually MAKE the stuff on there. But then I come to my senses and I realize I can't. So, I don't.
I saw this today and I knew all it would take was $9.99 and some magnets that I already had.
So, I was off to buy an *oil drip pan*....in the automotive department at WalMarte'.
It's like a gigantic cookie sheet. I'm going to hang it on the playroom wall.
We went to a 50th birthday party last night. One of our customers was turning 50. Her husband had just spent months having a HUGE workshop built behind their house. He threw the party for her in the shop. This is no ordinary shop. There was Blue Grass music and yummy food.
Good grief! I'm a city girl. It is what it is.
But this party, these are God's people. This is God's land. These are GOOD PEOPLE. They are blessed. I am blessed for knowing them.
Surely by now you have noticed the *FEATHER CRAZE.* I think it must have become popular after Steven Tyler wore a feather in his hair on American Idol this past season. I see them in girl's hair everywhere!! Apparently they are put in with a bead clamp as an extension and last for six-eight weeks.
We recently put new siding, windows, front door and porch overhang on our house.
It really changed the looks of things around here.
When we moved here, over twenty years ago, the siding on the home was blue.
Yeh, who does that?
Over the years it had really faded and was in desperate need of being replaced.
A strong, spring storm helped us out a little by tearing siding off one end of the house.
Here are a few pictures of the redo along the way.
We "skinned" the bushes to get ready for the work.
Building the porch roof/overhang. New windows have gone in.
Porch roof built. Old siding torn off. (The wood underneath was blue too!)
Shutters and new front door. (Threshold not painted yet.)
We still have to repair the threshold and paint but we've come a long way!
My very favorite part is the front door. We saw one just like it on another home, but could not find one anywhere. So we had a good friend, who is also a builder, make it for us. He did such a great job and made it EXACTLY like we wanted it!
We love our updates and are so thankful to have been able to make some much needed repairs.
