Happy sweet Thursday! & DIY Bird Bath

Hi there! Happy sweet Thursday!
Tuesday and Wednesday I rode a couple hours in the car with my mom and grandma to go visit my cousin and aunt. It was a wonderful little trip, and so nice to see the family, never a dull moment, we had a lot of laughs :)

Here's my 'NEW' bird bath...... 
I made it from a lamp shade upside down and bought a pretty light fixture last time I was at the auction :) 
And just set it right inside! :) 
  
I listed this pretty afghan blanket in my Etsy Shop

 It has just gorgeous and sweet colors, I almost just want to keep it :) 

A new garland I added to my booth at (Uptowne Shoppes in LaPorte, IN)

 Thought it was so cute blowing in the wind, and somewhat a little patriotic too!!

I had a girl from work order this cute custom giraffe softie.
I thought he turned out pretty good! 
She wanted him pink, and when I found these colors I just thought it looked like her! :) 


Hope you have a wonderful day! 
I think Luke and I are going to pick strawberries tonight!! 
We got all the things we need to make Strawberry Jam .....I'm excited : )

Wishing you Big smiles for the day!!!!

  9. For my fav it is a toss-up between the bird bath and the giraffe. I think the giraffe wins by a nose!
