I needed this...

I set out to buy a new rug for my door step. We go through them quickly because of the mud. I found one at Target (LOVE TARGET!) and it became my inspiration. SO rug from Target 12.99, two pots from TJ max 13.99, one glittery frog from Kohls-free because I earned Kohls cash buying groceries. (side note....Bill thought the Kohls cash was a scam to get ladies to spend more at Safeway:) and 5 bucks for flowers from the neighborhood greenhouse. They were glad to sell them to me because they said they WILL die and I can come back and buy some more. WHEW! Walking up to my door and smiling....priceless!

I am married to a contractor and for the first time in 24 years I bought my own hammer. I can NEVER find one when I need one.

From trash to treasure!

Levi brought home this bowl and was very disappointed with how the outside black glaze turned out.
It was rough and not smooth like it should be. And then outta nowhere Bill comes up with a brilliant idea! He says it feels like a chalk board so why not write on it with chalk. Like a recipe or popcorn. Sometimes failures are stepping stones to great discoveries! Isn't it a beautiful bowl? Thanks for stopping by!

Walking-love and hate it.

I went on a walk with the dogs and asked Hana to take a REALLY far away picture for the blog. She did a great job. Well I am trying to go for a walk everyday. I find that my mind finds reasons not to go. looks like it might rain or the road is busy this time of day. There are many more. But you see I have Eddie and Eddie watches my every move all day long. If I go to my sock drawer he comes running to see if I am putting on walking socks or dress socks. If I put on chap stick he instantly thinks we are headin out. And you better not say the word "walk" because he loses his mind. He even has figured out how to spell walk. Like if I say I'm going on a W-A-L-K. I swear he knows what I am talking about. He's like my own personal trainer. And so I WALK. Can't wait for nicer days:)

Spring has sprung! (not officially)

I went for a walk with the dogs and the ground was a little gushy. Eddie and Charlie spotted Kevin and David on the mule and decided to chase them. I thought eddie was going to have a heart attack. He was overheated and not in shape for the bikini season yet:) He decided to cool off in the pond. Needless to say he was very muddy. Oh well! as you can see he was smiling. Get out and enjoy the sun!
What is up with blogger? I cant get the font right...posting anyway:/
