Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Eskimo proverb

Good Evening everyone..How is your saturday so far? today was kind of a muggy day..humid..Here is the Goose in Millies spot..funny how they find these little nooks..
Here is Stewie man chewie looking to nurse..(its pretend nursing)..
I just thought it was cute how he was sitting/laying on my lap..the little dickens..I just love that kid..
well yesterday was a gorgeous day so my good pal Michelle and I set off to do some running around..we hit goodwill yesterday and I found 3 pairs of jeans and it was green tag friday..so it was 1/2 off..so my jeans were all 3.00 each..these are costco brand..so I cut them off and made shorts..and to let you all know my legs haven't been in short for over 12 years...I cut a pair of hubbies up and made them into shorts too..I love shorts with the frayed edges..and my legs don't look half bad..
and so was my eddie bauer levi jacket..I paid 6 bucks fot this..and you all know they can be spendy like 60.00 or more spendy..especially for eddie bauer..so that was a total score..)
these are my favorites.....
I love the design on the back..they are kind of capri like and oh so comfortable.;)
these are are sweetheart jeans from old Navy..
we headed to a garage sale first thing out..it was at hubbys bosses house and I hit gold..I got a cute gap shirt (that I have on as I type this)
and she had some really nice white lace linens..
these were a set of pillow cases..acutally I got 2 sets..
a curtain valance..I will probably cut this up to use on my purses and shabby chic stuff I am making..
and there were shoes.lots of yummy shoes..and she wears the same size I do..so I couldn't pass these up..the keds look so cute with jeans..I paid $3 fo those..the rest of the sandels were 2.00
these were eddie bauer sandels..brand new..I have the blue pair on as we speak..
not a good photo of these..but they are so cute and make your feet looks so small.these were 5.00 and brand new..
oh I love the sandels..the ones on the right are Merrel brand..and that brand is spendy..and boy are they comfortable...
I got this really cute sweater at goodwill..can't wait to wear that this winter..with a pair of leggings and boots..
I put one of the doilies in hubbys room...
one on the vanity as you enter the door..
and I got this wonderful tablecloth at the garage sale too..it looks to be like one of those expensive quilts..I paid 10.00 for that one..looks real pretty and cottage romancy doesn't it..I also got a new sink for the bathroom so hubby and I need to install that and put in a medicine cabinet and beadboard..it looks like free standing furniture..kind of contemporary..but for 30.00..it will look so much more updated then whats in there now..can't wait to get that project going..
I have made more kids hats..the two on the left and middle are the washington cougars colors and on the right is for the Broncos..what a fun pattern..
I made these for a gal I know here..a little hat, dress, bib and little feet (thongs) to put on her cute little toes..will have to take photos of baby harper to show you.)
and last but not least..I made my first cat hat..
I love those big green eyes..well I didn't go get my spray tan on...I found out after 5 days of torture and the torture is getting better that I am very allergic to the spray tan stuff..needless to say I am itchy all over my legs and arms mostly and have bruises from where I have scratched myself silly..I have been taking benedryl for the past couple of days..still alittle itchy..but my spray tan days are over..loved it while it lasted..so not sure if I want to go and sit in the tanning beds or not..I really don't want cancer but I sure loved how the tan looks..
today after exercising and mowing the lawn I cut my peonies..so I could enjoy them indoors..I think this is the first time they have bloomed..and there are more blooms..and they smell so good..and I am eating wild strawberries today..and we have some big green ones..so hopefully soon I will be eating some..not enough to make jam..but just to enjoy..well I am off to make chicken salads..I make a mean salad..Tomorrow we are having Ribs that have been marinating in beer and grilled asparagus..a nice dinner to celebrate dads day..I hope you all have a wonderful day tomorrow celebrating your dads and hubbys...take care.;)
If Any One sees anything on my etsy shoppe or blog and wants to swap or barter..PLEASE let me know.;)
God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as he always has. But he can't if you don't pray, and he can't if you don't dream. In short, he can't if you don't believe.” ― Jeffrey R. Holland
Hi there, My name is Gina and I live with my hubby of 27 years this new years eve 2012 and 9 cats and one stinky puppy..I have been crafting for about 25 years on and off...I can't remember how I came across the primitives, but I love them... Love the time worn look and the loved look...Sometimes I think I was born a hundred years too late..although I do love modern conveniences...like having my outhouse in my house if you know what I mean.. I love to decorate, it just tickles me to organize...any way, drop me a line. I love hearing from you all. Thanks for stopping by...:)
Weep not for me though I am gone, Into that gentle night. Grieve if you will, but not for long, Upon my soul's sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul's at rest, There is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed For all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, The fear now all is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts, In your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath, Remember not the strife, Please do not dwell upon my death, But celebrate my life. Author Constance Jenkins
