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!

A Late Night Post...

This little lady finally got a make-over!

TaDa! Here she is in all her pink happiness! I plan on storing glitter, glue and other fun crafty items here. What to put in the top spot? Perhaps some little cute houses made by my sweet friend, Jes?:)

We have all been having fun with this. $2.50 from Goodwill.:) Four different mysteries with clues that glow in the dark. Cool.

Look who arrived this week! It's Stella from my dear bloggy sister, Lindsay! She came all the way from England and has been traveling through the U.S. Read about her on Lindsay's sidebar. So many adventures sweet Stella has had! We are having the best time thinking of places to take her.:) Wish Lindsay and Jessica were with her, too..

I won the sweetest clutch from Candice! I love it and look at the darling tag she has on it! It's so cute I don't want to take it off. This little clutch makes me so happy with the lovely flowers! Thanks Candice!

So, who has started decorating for Fall? My girls unpacked all the Fall/Halloween boxes and brought the goodies inside for me! They are excited, too.)

Hi Lori
I love what you did to the shelf. I hardly recognise it. It looks great and will be perfect for all your craft stuff and treasures.
The clutch you won is lovely. The fabric is so pretty.
Great to see Stella has arrived safely. I hope she is behaving herself! Jessica and I wish we were there too!
Have a lovely weekend.

Lucky you to be the next hostess of Stella! She is a blast. I had her earlier this summer and while she was a job, she could also be naughty (she snuck out of my house and let herself be shot across the river by a cannon!). I can't wait to see your Stella posts and see where you take her!

I love that barn! It is very creative. So sweet! Isn't it awesome when kids can be creative with inexpensive things from the thrift store? I just love that!

Oh that is stinkin cute! I have a curio I never thought of painting it...why hasn't my brain clicked as much as I have seen many spray painting....oh well it finally went off better late than never.

Love the clutch!

Yep I am so ready for Fall and I did get my decor out this pass week but then got the nasty crud and missed the last half of week from work. Maybe I will get some done this week or over the holiday!

I had lost track of where Stella went. I am glad to find out is with you! She is definitely fun. I had her in February and visited the Charles Schulze Museum with her.
