Good Morning everyone!!! how is your thursday starting out? ours is glorious outside..and the babies are chilling in their kennel..enjoying the morning sun..This was photo was taken on monday..This is the BEFORE photo...so you can see what we did...
Here is the start of this project..we decided this was a big messy tree..that was here when we got back from italy..while I love this tree..it is starting to compete with the fir (not shown) its on the right of this photo..and it was as tall as the house..and a mess come fall..
all limbed up..
will use this for kindling for the woodstove...
oh the mess..we drug this to the back yard and tossed it over the fence in the raw property next too us..
hubby needs to get a new blade for his chain saw and that sucker is getting lopped off..and hopefully a straight cut..I will put a pot on it..
and here is the after photo..
you can see the entire house now..it just opened up the space and it seems lighter now..O)
what do you think?..next on the cut down list is the holly tree..that is one messy prickly tree..and it is outta here..the only draw back of the tree missing is the upper left window you can see in now..so no more running down the stairs naked at night..or at the very least..half dressed..lol.;)not a site that anyone wants to witness anyway.;)
Yesterday I went and got my orthodics for my feet..they are wonderful..test drove them last night for an evening walk..and my foot didn't hurt..so then onto Joanns yesterday..they had alot of stuff on sale..and I couldn't pass up the fabric isle..so I purschased this fabric..I am in love with them all but mostly that home sweet american home..it was 50% off..going to make some prairie dolls and embroider this cutest thing on their aprons..:) can't wait..stay tuned..
I also picked up some more felt..as a gal that I met on facebook is having me cut out die cuts for her felting projects..so I picked up some more..
I love this darling fabric..we are doing a service project for the little african girls at our church tonight..we are making T-shirt dresses..so I picked this up for my friend who couldn't make it..but wanted to contribute..
I am contributing this whole basket (yes there is a basket under there) of fleece..just not using it and its going to a good cause..
while waiting at the orthodics appt. yesterday..i was pulling out recipes from a country woman magazine 2010..and thought I would share this recipe since the 4th of July is almost upon us..
besure to click on the photos to get the recipe..:)
well on my way home..I stopped by the shoe store that deals with support issues..this is a spendy store..but their stuff works..I just had to have these sneakers..and my orthodics work in them..
and I got a pair of dress/church shoes.I have sandels ..but these would be great for winter....as my feet get cold..so that is it..tomorrow I share my 4th of July decor..it is truly nothing fancy..just slapped together and simple....I hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks as always for stopping by.
Tamera if you are reading this..I sent you an email about your inquiry yesterday..;)
Have a most wonderful day.;)
