Found this on Pinterest and fell in love with it.  Why??  My Brother has a Plantation in S.C. and raises cotton and now I can make a wreath from Sanders cotton and that makes me happy:)

I have found some more items that I had to paint and put into my new pink and white spare bedroom.  I'm loving the way it's all coming together and I love the Annie Sloan paint as it dries so quick.  I can't wait until the weekend!

Thanks to Pinterest  and Jars that I had, I made a little extra tada item for my entry way.  I love the wooden E's! I got 4 on a card at Michaels for $1.00.  I bought a white chennile bedspread from Belk's 2 weeks ago and got on ebay and found this chennile solid pink piece.  I had ordered a couple years ago the 6 inch squares to make a baby quilt and yep I never made one.  So now they are in good use, for me and my bed:)  I'm ready to get home after school and do something just anything crafty.

I have enjoyed sewing and crafting all week.  Maybe I can keep it up as I have so many more things I want to make.  I have already started on some of them and will list them tomorrow or Sunday.  You all have a great week-end:)

Well my surgery is over and after a 2 1/1 cut area for a small mole I think it's starting to heal:) I hope they got all they needed!! It's right on my waist line and I'm sure putting on clothes for the first time tomorrow is going to be hard.  Just been wearing gowns. On a bright note I found the sewing room again the first time since Dad got sick last Aug. a year ago and died in April.  I couldn't get out so I made my way to the sewing room and it feels great. I will be putting up more pictures of the wreaths and things I've been working on.  Saw Belks sale paper and my daughter went and picked up a bedspread I wanted and it's all white chennile.  That's what got me going as I cut up a shirt that didn't fit but loved the material and made a pillow.  Here it is!! Not chennile but I loved the yellow with the white which makes no sense because I'm doing that room white and pink.  Oh well!!

Found these chairs at a yardsale Saturday for only $2.00 each.  The dark brown has springs in the bottom.  The two that's alike I will shabby up and put a beautiful material seat and back.  I can't wait to start working on these after my small surgery Thurs.  Hope I heal by the weekend or at least the next weekend:)

Found a lot of great little items at yard sales this past week and decided to paint them.  I like to switch things up in my living room and extra bedroom when I find some special little extras:)

These were at a thrift store I stopped at and thought they were really neat.  They were about 4 to 5 ft tall and about 3 feet across.  I could see these make with bird nest and other items displayed on them.

My before and after picture of the mirror and desk that I painted for my entry way.  This was my 3 piece I painted using Anne Sloan paint and I just love it.

I just got back home from the beach as I've been there since June 12th. I'll stay home for a few days and go back as school doesn't start until Aug. 12th.  I enjoyed working on several projects and just wanted to share a couple.  The wreath of course was for the 4th of July and at the bottom is my house number.  I have a sign now on the front of the post that says beach:)  I hope the pizza man can find me now as it seems he can't see the mailbox number!!

Beach plant wreath

I'm so happy with the way my wreath turnedout. I had to use fishing line and glue but finally pulled it all together.

What I've been making.

Well once again I'm at the beach for the summer.  I have finished up with several projects which the first is our sign.  I made the fence by myself with 21 boards and yes I had to start over a couple of times.  My Dad taught me to love tools and to make whatever I had in my mind.  I also took this boring brown chair to a white chair and bought a shirt which was the same colors as my bedroom and this is the way it turned out.  I love it.  I also have a few other projects going on that I will post later this week.  I'm happy to say I'm down from 3 to 1 pill a day for my nerves.  The memorial garden is helping with that.  I'll post pictures later.  Thanks to everyone who has hung in there with me through my Dad's sickness and death.  Blogger friends are great friends to have.

Fell in love with this bird house I saw at a flea market. We are cleaning out the pack house so we can do our projects in there and not make a mess everywhere else. I'm going to make one or two of these for birthday presents:) I think everyone will love it! I sure do.

Well this is the bird feeder I made and I love the soft pink and the antique dishes I used.  I can't wait until June the 13th until I move to our Beach Home as I'm going to make another for there.  I went there this weekend and made a black one except I put solar lights on it and it's awesome at lighting a area that was sorta dark.

Last Saturday I took a Annie Sloan painting class.  Before I got there I stopped at a yard sale and bought this mirror for $1.00 yes $1.00 no mistake.  The lady teaching the class said I could paint it and so I did.  Without wiping off the nasty thing I painted it once with Duck Egg Blue and put a wax on it and I love it!!!  I bought 3 quarts and a small container of paint along with a brush.  It better paint really really good for $44.00 for a brush.  Anyway I can't wait until you see what I'm doing next.  Will post pictures soon.

Just had to share  this picture of the white Dove that has been at Dad's house for about a week now.  It just sits there and watches everything that's going on like my brother mowing or dog barking at it.  The Dove isn't afraid of any of us. Kinda of peaceful to watch it watching us.

Thank you for your prayers!  I have been keeping myself busy as I was in the middle of redoing my bathroom before Dad passed.  I just finished painting it grey and putting up my items and I'm pretty happy with it.  I took Mama's bedspread above and her afghan and put it on my spare bed.  Now the light fixture is a going to do picture that I found on my FB page. LOVE IT.  I will do it with some of Mom's dishes as I have the fixture at the beach just waiting for me to do something with it:)  I'm going back to work Mon. and I hope my nerves will be ready for 22 1st graders wanting to give me so much love but I know I'll cry.

Thank you for your messages and prayers.  My Dad passed away April 19 2013 at home in his chair peacefully. Dad wanted to hold my hand the morning he died.  My heart is broken!  I needed my Dad today and couldn't call him.  He was always my rock.  Please keep us in your prayers as we start a new life without Dad.

Hospice nurse talking with Dad about what she thinks will happen.  Dad may have another week or a least a few days.  Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes.  Hope to be back sewing and crafting soon.

New Years Eve and we celebrated it together.  Love our slow dance together and our midnight celebration.  We had a night to always remember.  I love him so much  and wishing he peace.

Teah's Bells Palsy has taken it course and she's now back to normal.  This was a picture when it was at it's worse and she was just joking around about it. Both of these has a good outlook on things.
I now have my photo gallery working and can share some of my pictures of what I've been doing.  My daughter's boyfriend of 2 1/2 years just made Captain and he asked Teah to pin him:) now that's special!!

I just wanted to check in and let everyone know what's going on with my dad. He has just turned 84 and we had a wonderful birthday celebration for him.  His cancer is now getting the best of him as he has started taking the pain pills Hospice has supplied him with.  He is dreaming of Heaven and telling how beautiful it is and also talking more about Mama. He is having a hard time eating now but won't complain.  Please continue to pray for him.  I'm doing ok but it's so hard knowing I have to let go of him.  I haven't made anything but really need to start a project to keep my mind on something else.  This might be a good time to start  new quilt. Again thank you for your prayers.
