About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Busy, busy, busy...

I've said it before. Summer is just not a time to slow down. There is too much fun around every corner!:) My girls have been having a blast at VBS...

I've started reading the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries. Who's been watching the show?? Fess up!

I have plans for this little beauty. $10 on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I love the lamp, but the shade- not so much. The bows need to go. My sweet friend, Jill, has inspired me with her ribbon masterpiece!

This huge frame is from Hobby Lobby, too. $5! I was inspired by Firefly Hill and her masterpiece! Burlap and chicken wire here I come! What color though? Robin's egg blue, black, white?? It will be going in my studio that has no color on the walls yet...

Jeff and I had dinner outside tonight. It was in the 70's! Check out the blue skies...

We had such fun here! Do you have a Mellow Mushroom near you? I love their hummus and Jeff is crazy for their subs. Mmmmm....

What have you been busy doing?

Fun finds!!

I just finished watching "True Blood" Season 1 - check out from the library as we don't have HBO and started the book last week. I like it, but I'm still lovin' Twilight better. It's a "sweeter" Vampire story :)

Lori, you have been having a terrific summer but the looks of it! I love Mellow Mushroom! I've been busy decorating the house, reading and just trying to enjoy the summer! Have a great day!

I was just thinking about eating at the Mellow Mushroom today! It's right by the bank where I have to deposit some checks....I think it's a sign that I read this post!

Weekly beach day and a weekly parkday along with getting kids ready to go to camp and then washing all their stuff when they get home. It has actually been a pretty relaxing summer. Getting a little more reading done too.

Lori, you got me hooked on watching True Blood. the last couple days I watched all of season 1 on DVD and then got up to date by watching this season on the cable ON DEMAND. how bad is that!!!? I've gotta read the books since the show doesn't leave anything to the imagination.

now I'm busy, busy, busy trying to get my creative space done so I can show it off tomorrow on my blog... are you excited to see it??? I'm excited to show it off!

love the frame. I would go with the robins egg blue

we don't have a mellow marchmallow in AZ. sounds fun though!

Pam said...

I love the Mellow Mushroom. My kids have been begging me to take them there for ages.
I'd love to see the finished lamp.

Ruth said...

I love the lamp and can't wait to see what you will do with it. I wish we had a Hobby Lobby close but don't. The frame from Firefly Hill is great. It will look great.

I have never heard of Mellow Mushroom.

Lori, I had to see what the chicken wire and burlap was, I have to admit, I thought it would be very country-crafty looking. I love it! I can't wait to see yours when its done! Your are so talented and creative, I will have to talk you into making one for me! See you tomorrow! clw
