Wreaths, License Plate and Welcome Sign

Image
 I love these! Saw them on FB and you know I love them! After seeing the cat wreaths I was out running errands when I saw this license plate. HAHA.. Been finishing up with my pieces for my mailbox. But while things were drying where I sealed them I painted this. I think it needs something... maybe a bow? Pam

Dust, Car, and Witches

 I have this covered!! Saturday I was leaving the subdivision to head to the venue when I saw this coming at me. 1941! Amazing! If you have not noticed or I have not shared I LOVE OLD CARS/TRUCKS. LOVE... 81 years old. Speaking venue, also on Saturday, I was sneaking a pic of the bride and groom when the photographer Sam Hearn  was sneaking a pic of me, so you turn and catch him in the action Saturday afternoon I got some witches made to  hang with my ghost. How would you make a witch? I took two of these wire baskets I had on hand. Two plastic table clothes Twine Plastic witches hats I then took the wire plant holders, tied  twine to them, poke a hole in the center of the table clothes, run the twine up through the table clothe, cut a hole in the tip of the hat and run the twine up through the hat also. Hang from a tree. Simple and easy. I have been working on my items for my mailbox... I need to get going on that. Ann said that in her subdivision the mailboxes are on the house... In

Mother Nature  can paint some beautiful pics. BUT...... sometimes Mother Nature can be such a  bitch. Florida ... Even saw a video of a shark swimming around in a subdivision. Ian did a number on these folks. Hoping that your area is not dealing with this sort of stuff. Pam

Painting Class and Fridge

Image
 Its so funny that I pay to go to these paint classes when I  can teach this  at my house. But, its fun when someone ask you to go and you go as a group. Friday night I  went to a gallery in the city next to me with my sis in law,  niece and sis in laws niece. We had so much fun. We painted this. This is Kims. My niece Holly and her painting. Sis in laws niece, Briana Holly again and my sis in law, Kim Three of us. Holly had to  leave early cause she is taking some college courses and had homework. Me, Kim and Briana. I love seeing the differences. The guy teaching had 3 bats. I only wanted two as did Kim. We all did the pumpkin faces different.  I loved it. Have any of you ever went to classes like this? My fridge was here when I moved in. Can't remember when mom bought it. I should have the paperwork and need to look it up. But it was getting rusty on the front. I am not  a fan of this type of finish anyway..  So I decided to cover it. Amazing what you can do with contact paper.

Contest

Image
 So I did this thing... I might have mentioned it before but here goes again.... On my subdivision FB page I threw out  an idea and asked  who wanted to play along. Then a guy I went to school with threw in on my post that if we make it a contest he will throw in 100 bucks.  That is not what I wanted but he insisted. I tried to explain that we would need  judges....well, two folks not doing the decor said they would judge. So, its a contest now. Its Halloween Mailbox Decor. I have a running list of those that are playing along with addresses.  Without my list in front of me I might be  one or two off but we are at 31 I think that wanted to play along. Here are a couple that  are up now. No, mine is not done yet. I plan on  doing that this weekend. This is how it is going  to go. judging will be Oct. 20th. I had the addresses so I will go out and take pics of each mailbox and post on our FB page, judges will have to talk together via messenger and decide. I am excited at the ones wantin

Me, Wedding Decor and Results

 I have some friends Aric and Krystal  that I met through James and Julie from the venue.  They have been married 23 years. They wanted to do a renewal of vows for several years and this year, Julie and I decide to help them with that. Julie, James, Lisa, and I will be giving of ourselves and our talents on Oct 15, 2022. Julie will be re- marrying them, James will be doing the  music and Lisa will be assisting. I will be doing photos. But bless her heart, Krystal  has been overwhelmed with  the things she wanted to do and work projects so we thought it would be  nice to go through things Tuesday afternoon with props  and decor.  Will show pics of  that in a bit but as we were  finishing up I sat down on a log.  I handed Julie my phone and asked her to take a pic cause I knew I  just looked cute as hell sitting there!! HAHA...and this came from someone that hates her pic made. Julie snapped several but several I was making faces... this one was pretty good. After setting up all the stuf
