Getting Ready for Decorating

Good Morning~

 I spent this past long week-end hanging out with my family. We had a wonderful time just doing nothing. It's been so hectic lately, that we decided to just hang out. It was wonderful.

I'm off to work for the next few days, but am excited to finally be able to put out my Christmas goodies. This Santa wreath is just a sneak peak (he's made from an Olde Country Cupboard pattern). Don't ya just love him!! He's hanging on my Christmas present from my loving hubby. It's an old wardrobe cabinet & I love it!! I'll post more pics later.

Off to work.

A Day to be Thankful...

Good Morning All~
 I know I've been gone for quite a while. Just wanted to let you all know that I am still here. It's been an extremely busy couple of weeks. I had 3 craft shows back to back. I hope to be able to get back to blogging in the next few days. I'm looking forward to reading all the blogs I've been following. I really miss it.

Taking time today to spend time with my family. I am thankful that we are all together and healthy and are lucky enough to have both sets of parents still with us.

Enjoy your day

Take Some Time ...

Today is the day we honor all veterans. Please take a few minutes from your busy day to think about what they have done for us & our country. This picture represents just a few of the flags that are put up outside our local VFW hall. There are over 30 flags that line the road & stand proud in front of the VFW hall. It is a beautiful sight to see. As a scouting family, we help to put them up & take them down. It is an awesome sight to see boys ranging from 10-18 working along side our veterans.

Please say a prayer today for all our men & women who are away from their families.

Christmas Tree in an Old Tin

It is a beautiful day here in Southeastern Wisconsin~the sun is shining & the temps are in the mid 50's. Not bad for November & a lot better than the rain we have been having on & off for the past 3 weeks.

 I thought I would show you one of the things I have been working on for my upcoming show. Sandy over at the Olde Country Cupboard showed her trees in old coffee cans awhile ago on her blog. I did something similar a few years ago & sold all the ones I made then~so I decided to do some more with a new twist. I made stocking ornies that will be sold with the trees. As you can see from the picture, I have been neglecting my housework (dust, dust, everywhere). I'll have to live with it for a couple more weeks as I am frantically trying to complete a bunch of unfinished projects before November 14th. Good thing that picture was taken in my bedroom & not my family room. Hubby doesn't notice~he's busy hunting at this time of the year.

Off to hang out some sheets & back to crafting!! Enjoy the day!!  Hugs~Becky

Our new ponds

Good Morning Everyone.
 Thought I would share with you our wonderful little family ponds. These ponds have been two years in the making and I am glad to say that they are finally done~kind of. We still need to fill in some of the gaps between the stones with bark chips. This started out when my younger son, then 12, needed a family project for his Family Life merit badge in Boy Scouts. You wouldn't think something so small would take so long, but it did!! We just kept putting off finishing it.I just love it!! Now I will have to wait until Spring to enjoy it as Tim has removed the pump so it doesn't freeze.

Stephen (youngest) wants to add fish next year. I like the idea, but you all know who will be taking care of those fish~me. I have the next two days off & a craft show in less than 2 weeks, so I better try to get something done today. Enjoy your day!!
