Happy Memorial Day!

Thank you to all the men and women who serve and have served to protect our country.

I had hoped we could have a nice bbq picnic outside and play some lawn games, but the weather is not cooperating. So it looks like we will have to have a plan b. Maybe hubby can still grill, we can eat on porch and play a board game inside.

Birthday month is finally coming to a close. I had a great one know 11 months to go and we can do it again. Make sure you leave a comment before June 3 to be entered in my drawing.

Have a wonderful day. I am off to do the laundry and some destashing.

Wonderful Wednesday

Welcome to the new followers and thank you to all for hanging with me. Remember there will be a give-away on my Birthday Day the 29th!

This week has flown by. Here it is already the 12th day of my birthday month. Lots to share. I started my garden. I built the box, added the soil (which I mixed), added the plants and then the pine needles. Now to watch it grow. I have a few other things to plant today and will share those tomorrow.
My garden has a row of gourds (love those and want to make bird houses out of them), next row tomatoes, peppers and then garden beans (not sure what they are, but they looked cool). I have cucumbers to put somewhere else and watermelons. A few herbs that are not looking very good also need to find a good planting spot.
We have a new tree in our front yard. Thanks to hubs for digging in the wonderful clay soil here. I think I got the better end of the deal by building a raised bed. Off to planting I go. All the photos were taken by fuzzy snails. She is becoming quite the little photographer. Happy planting and creating day!

Thrifty Thursday

Happy 6th day of my birthday month. I have been a little side tracked lately. Monday was spent rescuing these two sweet little pups.
They are very hungry - yet very loving. I have had them groomed and shots will be given on Saturday. They are eating small meals and doing very well. They are looking for a loving home - so if you are in my area and want them or know of someone shoot me an email.
I have come across a ton of paper & hard back books that are in french and english. They are very old and would be wonderful in art. Send me an email if you are interested in some - they are going to be very cheap and listed on my etsy.

Paperbacks are $1 each and hardback $1.50 plus media mail shipping. If you want several I can ship in flat rate boxes or media which ever is least expensive for you. Just shoot an email.

Have a creative day.

Happy Monday!

It is a very wet start to our week here. But hey, it is my birthday month, so I will not complain.

A couple of years ago I built a birdhouse out of a cigar box. We have finches that love to build on our lights on our front porch. Well, they did not move in the cigar box and have since built yet another nest on the light. Yes, we bought new lights that would not be buildable, but did not get them up in time. Well someone else has decided to move into the cigar birdhouse and when I peeked in today here is what I saw...
Guess someone else wants to spend my birthday month with me. Yeah! I think I shall name her Daisy. Looks like I might have to come up with 3 more names. I will keep you posted on their arrival.
