While doing some yard work...I managed to get in the way of the falling clock that we have in our back yard.

I decided to do a little bit of springtime crafting. I have a hard time getting excited to decorate in pastels, which is usually what springtime decor is all about. So, I switched it up a little and I think I could get away with leaving these little beauties up year round.

I bought the plastic Easter eggs from the dollar store. I got three different sizes to make it more interesting. Then, I found different things around the house to Mod Podge onto the eggs. I ended up using several different types of supplies. Pages from an old book, scrap booking paper, and lace. I also got out my hot glue gun and glued dried beans and craft twine onto some of the eggs.(Kind of time consuming, but easy.)

The best thing about the project was that it was super inexpensive to make. So, here's the finished project...

Where Did The Summer GO!?

Sorry for my absents. I couldn't seem to keep up with the events that took place this summer.
Wow! Summer seemed to be a whirlwind that was here and gone in a hurry. I'll keep it short and simple...
*June...Kitchen flooded. (Dishwasher is to blame.)
No big deal, right?
Can you say Asbestos?
Apparently it was underneath the sopping wet, flooded hardwood floors. The sub flooring in my house had asbestos in it. We had to hire a company to safely remove the flooring down to the bare bones. Yeah...I could see the ceiling of the basement in my kitchen.
*My son kicked a soccer ball through the kitchen window...ouch!
Time to replace the window anyway, right! lol.
*July...Good News...excuse to remodel!
Don't worry that the floors were only 3 years old and I kinda liked 'em. We had a major mess on our hands!!! What use to be hardwood is now a beautiful tiled kitchen. What use to be a wall that divided the kitchen from the living room...GONE. I now have wide open spaces. A nice new pantry made it's home in place of the wall.
*My son broke his nose while we were on our family vacation. Another OUCH!

I think this is the 1st school year that I have welcomed it with Open Arms. Life seems to be somewhat back to normal for now. (knock on wood.)
Be Back Very Soon.

Alternative Down Comforter

We've all heard of an "Alternative Down Comforter," right? Apparently so has the Robin that made a nest in my pine tree. The alternative just happens to be cat fur. We have a 15 pound cat named Chloe that unknowingly contributed to this little nest.....ewwwww, sick!

This one is cute too. Life seems to slip by so quickly and I need to remember to "Get Together" with friends and family more often.
