This past week....

Hi there sweet friends!!! 
I have missed you! 
Our home internet and phone wasn't working for a whole week and a couple days....it felt like forever! I occasionally could get enough signal on my phone to look at Instagram or post a picture here and there, I'm so glad our internet is back now! I have a lot of catching up to do with you all!!! 

Over this weekend Luke's brother got married on Saturday, and I got to take some pictures for them!! 
It turned out to be a beautiful weekend. And nice weather for an outside wedding!

Luke and I  :) 

 I made some of my handmade candles in these boot glasses.

Hope you have a lovely week!!!
 I'm excited to catch up with you and see what you've been up to!! :)

Hoorrray for the weekend!!

Hi there! 
Yippeee its the weekend,
 and its suppose to be beautiful out here! 
We will be outside enjoying it too! 

 My old blue bike (given to me from a friend) is keeping all the volunteer cilantro company on the side of our shed! I think its really pretty! I'm hoping to make some fresh salsa with it! 

 Cute little white blooms

 Having some fun with spray paint..... here's a peak!

 Did you know you could cook pizza on the grill!!??! 

We got a box kit and followed the dough instrcutions and then stuck one on the grill and one in our cast iron pan. We browned those sides then flipped it over and put our toppings on....yumm yumm!! 

 I was sorting threw this old sewing tin, finding lots of goodies :) 
It's like its own little treasure hunt in itself! So fun!! 

I added a couple new things to my Etsy Shop for a "Back to School" theme! 

 Lanyard ID Necklaces,
 they are perfect for you, your teacher friends, and even great for nurses!
And pretty! 

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! 

*ps. I was just thinking today how wonderful our blogging community is, I am really thankful for your kind friendships, generosity, and really just being such sweet friends!! Thank you :)

Hello sweet friends! 
I've been busy making "cherries." 
I just finished working seven crochet cherries.....now I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them. They are so cute! I was first thinking maybe turn them into brooches, they would look adorable pinned on a jean jacket! Or was thinking about making a little garland of them.....hmmm. Thoughts? 
A garland would probably take all of them, then I would be cherry-less until I made some more!  

Onto some small cherry pies, 
I cheated and used a can of Cherry topping and a pre-made crust for these (almost) fast pies! 
I say almost fast because those little ones were pretty time consuming! lol. Rolling the dough a little thinner, cutting out the circles and trying to pinch the sides together while the cherries were inside. But they turned out to be a yummy treat! 

As you can see here I had quite a bit of cherry topping left and just decide to do one bigger cherry roll up! 

 Not sure if these littles are really picture worthy but they were good and (kinda) cute. 
 Some pretties I have hung in our living room, sort of like an inspiration board! :) 
 I'm still enjoying the bright and colorful goodness! 
Happy sweet Wednesday!!! 
Wishing you a lovely day and please do enjoy some craftiness today!!

Dancing with Butterflies

Hi there, good morning and happy sweet Saturday to you!
Just wanted to pop in and share my pretty cone flowers, that I've been enjoying so, and some butterfly pictures that I took! 

 Every time I walk outside by these flowers there are so many 
pretty butterflies and bees on them and around them, just minding their own. 

 This butterfly just kept circling around, like he was showing off his pretty colors. 
He let me get several pictures. 

Thanks for looking with me! :) 
Hope you have wonderful weekend ~Enjoy!!

Primitive Old Quilt

Hello and good day to you! 
I've had this pretty primitive quilt for a while now ok maybe like over a year now I thought we might put it on our bed, because I just loved it and it was so different! As of yesterday I decided I have lots of things and its time to clean house a bit.....so it went to my booth at Uptowne Shoppes. 

It's a nice size, rather large, heavy and in good shape. 
But it never made it to our bed last year. 

That's it for today! I'm hoping to catch up on your blogs and try to post more here too! 
I have many pictures and more sharings!! See you again real soon! 
Thanks for the sweet visit!! 

ps. Can you believe today is the last day in July!!???! Summer is going by so fast!

Thrifty Nifties!

Happy sweet day to you! 
I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far!
I feel a little behind here on the blog, if you follow me on Instagram, then you probably already seen these cute thrifty finds. I found these a couple weeks ago. I thought the books were so colorful, loved those cute shakers and those watches for re purposing/jewelry making, and of course I love a bag of laces and trims!! 

 I have been enjoying these flowers lately, just yesterday I was taking a whole bunch of pictures of them with butterflies and bees....I'll have to show those another time! :) 

I also found this cage at a garage sale recently, it was bright gold color and in need of some new paint! 
I decided on this creamy white for now and its hanging out from a branch right by my fairy garden! 

 I made a little something special for my mom, just because (: 
the one that says "Mother" xxx 

Happy mid-week!! 
Hope you have a lovely rest of the week and stay cool! 
I'm so enjoying this summer<3
