Time Flies

Wow, I can’t believe how fast June is moving right along.  Been spending time with our sweet little grandson.  He brings us so much joy, that’s for sure!

We found a really nice playground he just loves to play at. He got grandpa to go down the slide with him.

He has to study the animals in the tree!




Had him in Target one day, don’t think he was impressed much, at least not that day! He’s so funny, he always puts his arms behind his head like that.


Grandchildren…one of the greatest gifts your heart will ever know~

Pinterest Project

While strolling Pinterest one day, I came across these flowers I thought were cute and would be fun to make. I don’t remember who pinned it but there were several different versions of it.  Just needed some scissors, construction paper and glue stick. Simple easy! I took them to school and put them up, after all, April showers bring May flowers!  I decided later it would be cute to make a front and back side to them and then you could place them in a vase.



Speaking of flowers, I need to get busy and plant mine.  At least these don’t take any water!

Not Today

Sometimes there is just so much drama and daily shenanigans a person deals with, that you just get weary, so when I spotted this ring on Etsy from Oak Hill Designs, I just had to have it!  My little battle armor if you will~


Nope, that’s right….NOT TODAY!

Have a good one!

Smooth and Messy

I came across this little pencil guy my Grandma Dorothy made years ago. I can remember playing with it at her house when I was young.  You took your hand and smoothed it’s hair nice and straight. Then you placed the pencil in between your hands and moved it back and forth and it’s hair would go all wild and messy. It reminds me how everything can be so smooth and neat one moment and then become all messy the next.  I guess that’s to be expected in this thing called life.  Enjoy every smooth moment and in those “messy” times, remember, this too shall pass!



Wishing you a smooth week!

A Little Lantern Love

Lanterns. So many different ways to style them and so many different spaces to use them in.


Just change them up by using different florals or maybe go with some greenery. Change out the lighting as well.  A candle, an electric light or in this case a Prairie Pitcher Scentsy warmer.



A cozy mood creator for sure!

Pretty Flowers

We had our 29th Wedding Anniversary this month and Rusty surprised me with this beautiful bouquet! 


When it started to die off I kept plucking out the goods ones and putting them in this cute little owl mug that I found at Walmart. Still liking cute little owls!  I bought it with the intention of using it as a vase. Owl bet you didn’t know that!  ;)

Just in time to welcome Spring!

I had never been to a HomeGoods store before but have heard about them and several people mentioning how they really like them.  One day we happened upon one and I just had to check it out. They have a lot of stuff and I think it’s one of those stores where you find something new all the time.  Anyway I had been looking for a laundry basket and came across this one. It was unique in that it is so bendable. It is very soft and pliable and it looks good too!  Every time we use it we comment on how well we like it. It was only a couple bucks more than the average plastic one. I’m really glad I bought it.


Jasper really approves of it too!



Laundry is a little more fun when you have a cute basket to put your clothes in, ha ha!
