Chuckle for the Day

Had to share this funny auto correct text with you all.  Rusty and I went shopping and he left to go to another store and later sent me this text asking me if I was about done.

Those auto corrects can come up with the craziest things!  Enjoy your day!

Thrift Finds and Some Changes

 

Happened upon a new thrift store the other day and found these beautiful white pieces for 25 cents each.  Then….

I found this sweet picket fence piece in an antique shop. It caught my eye just as soon as I stepped in the door,  $15.  Then…

Came across this sign one day and loved what it said.  I have since seen it pictured in a magazine, don’t know which one,  I was just thumbing through  magazines at the check out line a while back and thought, hey there’s my sign!

In fact, I might have went a little overboard!

Fun Project

20140704_083220_resized

This year’s library summer reading program is “Fizz, Boom, Read!”

We will be doing different science experiments.  The first day we made “GAK”, which was made with Elmer’s Glue, water and Borax.   I later came across this recipe where you use equal parts of Elmer’s Glue (which I bought the glitter glue) and Sta-Flo liquid starch.  It was fun and super easy to make. I know I’m not a little kid anymore but it’s fun to sit around and squish it!  Think of it as a stress reliever!  Elmer’s glitter glue comes in different colors, so you have your pick.  I like to just stare at the glitter glue in the bottle, so pretty,  I know, I’m weird that way!

Here’s a picture of the kids with the “GAK” they made…

New Flower Bed

 

Rusty built a new flower bed for me. I didn’t know what kind of flowers or how I was going to fix it up.   I decided to do purple and yellow, purple petunias and yellow marigolds.  I also transplanted some daylilies.  I started looking around at some things I already had and came up with this.  I will have to take some more pictures when the flowers  get to blooming more.

Hello! It’s Me Again~

I see that it was Easter that I last posted anything.  Shame on me!  I guess you could say I have just been blog lazy.  I shall try and get out of my rut and do a better job of posting.  Been doing some things outside.
