Day 333- February 24, 2011 - The View from the Upper Deck

Still posting pics from my week long stay
at my brothers house. This is a shot off
the back deck over looking
the barn, the trees and right to
the lake. Beautiful.
This is view that you can't see
ones the trees fill out for the
spring and summer months.

Day 329- February 19, 2011 - Missing His Daddy and Mommy

This is Moose. He is a chocolate lab and a big
lovable baby.
I stayed out at my brothers place for a
week watching the animals and poor
Moose acted like he missed his
Daddy and Mommy so much.

I caught this pic of him laying on the sofa with his
head hanging off, looking so lost and alone even
though there were 6 other dogs around. What
you don't see that appeared after this pic is
a puddle of drool on the floor!

Day 328- February 18, 2011 - Goodwill, Good Buys

I am a bit behind on posting a post a day, thanks for
reminding me Mark! lol
So I am going to be posting a blog post for the
days that I have missed while I was away at my
brothers house, house/dog/bird and horse sitting!

While I was busy with the animals I took a break last Saturday
to venture out to the Goodwill near their house.
I am always on the look out for something I
can us to make something else.
But with this first buy, it was
work needed. This is for one of my grandson's.
It can sit on the shelve in his room and I don't have
to do a thing with it.
Got this cutie at the bargain price of .99 cents.

This next purchase was $2.99 but I have plans for
it that I will have show at a later date.
This is a nice piece $2.99. I thought it would be perfect
to sat a potted plant on.
And these were $1.49. Not sure yet
what I will do with them but it will come to me.
This was .99 cents and its metal. Loving the black look
these days.
Really do not care for the pic or the saying on this
but for .99 cents I got a really nice piece of
board that don't need cutting or sanding. I think
I have a project in mind I can use this for.
This little glass dish was only .49 cents. I thought it would
nicely on the dresser to put rings in.
Another .99 cent buy. What can I do with this?
But for $1.49 I really like this buy. Probably more
then I should have given for it but I had been
looking for something like this....
to use in the kitchen so that I can do away with
this other bottle.
Now won't that look better sitting on the counter?
Thanks for stopping by,

Day 323 - February 13, 2011 - Calendar Project

I borrowed this from someone else's blog and since I
printed it off to copy a few weeks ago, I have
no clue whose blog was I borrowed it from...
but thanks I loved what you did with the
Christmas paper calendar like this but
I wanted one for my desk at work so
I went with the black theme.

Sorry again, for not have step by step directions but
I was playing games with my grandson in
between steps and the shots I should have
taken, did not get taken!

I used two wooden blocks from Hobby Lobby.  .99 cents each
A wooded plaque piece also from Hobby Lobby.  .50 cents
5 different styles of scrapbook paper.
 6 would have been better but I could not find another
black and white print I liked.  So each block has
one style used twice...NO biggie.
Black paint, had on hand.
Mod Podge, had on hand.

Painted the blocks and plaque black.
After that dried I mod podge the squares I had
cut onto the blocks. Letting that dry.
Then with black paint I painted on the numbers.

Block one should have 0, 1, 2, 4, 5,
Block two should have 0,1,2,6,7,8,
be sure your 6 can be turned to use as a 6 or a 9.
Then I Mod Podge over the whole thing.

Easy....just have to wait between drying of paint and mod podge.
Thanks for stopping in.

Day 322 - February 12, 2011 - More Birds

I think I have found a new way of bird watching...
I am on the computer sitting in front of the window with my
camera sitting right next to me.....and
while I work, the birds come to me and
land in the bush outside the window.....

Sitting here minding my own business and look what
came to visit.

Same with this one.
And this one...only he would not come to the bush, he was in
the tree just past the bush.

This is easy pesy!
Thanks for stopping in,

Day 321 - February 11, 2011 - The Birds

Wednesday was a snow day for me! Mother Nature just keeps on dumping
on us in Nashville. So with the roads in slick shape, I took
off work. I could not let that day go to waste but I am learning
so fast that there are just so many times and ways that you can
photograph the snow in your own yard!

With that, I decided to leave the dog in the house and I went out
once again into my white yard but this time to see
if I could catch some birds in action. I left the dog
in the house cause on my past attempts to do this,
he scares them all off by chasing them.

Got this mess of guys in the backyard high in the trees.
They were making a lot of noise.

Then I caught this cutie setting in the tree near the front of the drive.
All my trees line the drive across the creek. And getting
this next guy was a challenge.

I started at the front of the drive trying to catch a shot of her. But she
would either be behind small branches, to far away or I would
scare her off with the sound of the frozen crunching snow!
But I got this shot of her.
Next I found this one sitting on the line next to the front porch....
just waiting and posing.

And last but not least...I shot this one from my desk in the
craft/office in front of the window.

Thanks for stopping in.
