A Busy Weekend.

Friday and saturday we had a wonderful Women's conference at church. I was on the decorating committee. This was not my idea but I did help create it. All of the tables were done like this in different colors of tulle. Sadly, I did not get pictures of the food table. It was beautiful and delicious.
On Sunday, we celebrated my Husbands 50th Birthday at a local mexican restaurant.

Let's just say 50 candles makes a lot of smoke. Some little friends helped blow out the candles.

"Red"dy for Fall

It's time for Rednesday at It's a Very Cherry World. Join Sue and all the others celebrating "Red".

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I love the colors of fall, leaves, cool days, wearing sweaters and jackets, apples, pumpkin rolls, hearty soups. I must be hungry. I am so ready for it. It has been a long hot, dry summer.

We did have a beautiful spring. An Exceptional "bloom time". We got a lot of rain early and then when everything started blooming not much rain. That let everything stay pretty and colorful for a while. But then it got hot and stayed hot.
Now, I am ready for fall. I found my boxes of fall decor yesterday and I started outside.

I think this is called a Spider lily.

Time Flys.

I just got off the phone with old friend who had to cancel her visit to me. But, we did talk awhile and got caught up on our lives the last few years. I enjoyed talking with her but It would have been nice to see her in person. Call an old friend today and "get caught up".

Here are a few pictures from our camping trip to Blythe Island, Georgia a couple
of weeks ago. It was the maiden voyage of our "Little Camper". Before I left , I made a few improvements. I didn't really have a bed just a platform consisting of the 2 bench seats and the plywood shown in the picture.

I purchased two large pieces of foam for the three pieces of wood and cut them to fit. By the way, an electric knife cut through the foam like a hot knife on a stick of butter. Easy Peasey. The hardest part was getting the measurement correct so I didn't make mistake on that expensive foam. Next I covered the foam covered planks with batting and denim material. Used my $1.00 sharp shooter shown in an earlier post to attach the fabric to the wood. Sadly, I was so eager to get loaded up forgot to take a picture of the completed project. The picture shown is actually the sofa bed mattress on top of the seats. But I think you get the idea.

This was our little home away from home.

I am going to try to change the look of my blog. My friend Kelly at inspired me to make a change.

It Rednesday at "It's a Very Cherry World".

A few pictures of my red finds from last week. I spotted the red formica shelf /stand at a yardsale last week. I had been a the yardsale for a while looking at other treasures. I had not seen the shelf when I first arrived. When I saw it, I thought some one else had already purchased it. The lady having the yardsale said her husband had just put it out. It was $15. I'll take it.
The red tin was a great find for 50 cents. And I couldn't resist the wooden box for $3.00. After all I needed something to put all those buttomns in.
This is only about half of the score. I love the square red buttons toward the bottom of the picture.
