Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
I wanted to let you all know about a GIVEAWAY that is going on.
Cecily over at Craftopotamus is giving away one of my favorite things!
A beautiful QUILT! I can't believe she is going to give it away.
I have always said a quilt is the best gift anyone could ever get!
Be sure to head on over to Craftopotamus and enter to win this treasure.
I will try to put Cecily's blog button on the right side of my blog and if
all goes well, you should be able to get to Cecily's blog by clicking on
her button.
I would like to wish you all good luck and I look forward to hearing who
is the lucky winner. (Truthfully, I hope it's me, hehehe)

*Back To School*

Bridger and Branson headed back to school this week.
Summer went by so fast this year, I was a little sad to send them back to school.
Bridger, (my non-smiler in photo's) is in the 4th grade this year and Branson is in the 6th grade.
With the boys in school now, I am hoping to get some more projects done and checked off the list. I finished a sewing project this morning but I am not going to post pictures of it because it is a Christmas gift for someone and I don't want her peeking at her gift.
Can I just say ...YAY! one Christmas gift done!!!
I did take a picture and will post sometime after Christmas.
Now, I think I am ready to head out to the garage and tackle painting the buffet.
I will take before and after pic's.
Have a great day!

YAY, I can check two more off the list!

YAY! I just finished two more projects on my "Unfinished Projects List!"
I still have several more to go but I am happy to have these two baby quilts done.
I gave one to my sister-in-law for her new baby, Kellee.
She is such a cute baby and only weighed just over 5 lbs. when she was born.
The other quilt will be stored away until I need another baby girl gift someday.
I know now that I really must be turning into my mother, she always makes more than she needs whenever she makes anything, you know, just in case:)Well, onto the next project. No time for blogging right now but I will be back soon!
Love You All!

~Garden Party~

We had such a fun Garden Party the other night.
Good Company...This is Blanca, Grandma Bliss(My Mom) and Ruth(Ruth is the one that provided the beautiful yard for the party)

We were all suppose to wear a hat.....
These are a few of the cute hat's that were worn.
There was lot's of Yummy food made with produce from our gardens.
Everyone enjoyed the food, sooo good!
Liz Laney,(aka Martha Stewart) made Lavender Punch, it was amazing!
The tables were so cute

The Garden Party was in Ruths yard and it is a beautiful and manicured yard. Ruth works very hard keeping her yard so beautiful and it was so kind of her to let us all spend some time there and enjoy the beauty of it.

Well, that is a few photos of our fun Garden Party! I hope we can do this again soon. Thanks everyone that helped to make it such a fun evening and thank you Ruth for sharing your yard with us and inspiring me to get out and work in my yard.

~Show & Tell Friday~

Do you remember when I shared this picture with you a few months ago?
I had found it at a yard sale and loved it.
The picture is old and tattered but I love it! Well, thanks to one of my wonderful blog friends,(Marilyn from Somewhere In My Time) she informed me that there was a partner to my picture. A little girl with a cat and it is called,"Chums"
Well, I had to have it. After searching, I found one!!!
The picture is old and seems to be a little sun faded but I love it
I now have them both hanging in my bedroom. I don't know why some things appeal to me, I'm sure not everyone would get this much joy out of two old tattered and faded pictures but I Love them!
Hope you all find what appeals to you and it makes you as happy as these have made me.

Thanks again Marilyn!
