Nana's Day Out With the Boys

Last Sunday I planned a day out with my grandbabies and my daughter. We were going to a friends house to see her animals. Kim was very nice to invite us up to play wiht the animals. This is my youngest grandson, Braden. He is 1.5 yrs. old. We were in my daughters van on the way up so I snapped a pic of each one of the boys. This is Braden's new smile. And meet DJ. He is my middle grandson. He is 3.5 yrs. old. He was in the very back of the van and trying to see out the front. I noticed when I uploaded the pics that DJ had his hand out the window! Caleb, my oldest grandson. He is 11.5 yrs old. He was not to happy at this point cause Nana did not bring the ipod for him to play with. But this look changed soon enough. This is one of the first sights we saw when pulling in at Kim's house. cute. This is the female Elvira. There is a male named Zippy. Braden took to the goats and my no fear

My Cup Runs Over......and the Birds like it

Yes, I have been on Pinterest again! I posted this cup and saucer that I made several weeks ago. I did have it hanging in the tree but this one day I was trying to get some really good shots from the kitchen so I sat it on the deck rail. My first visitor was this guy. Then came this guy. I think this is a House Finch. I have since hung the feeder on a shepards hook near the deck. If I can leave the squirrels out of it I will be fine! Thanks for stopping in, Pam

Oldies but Goodies

My mom is in her 70's. She has started to give away stuff to us kids and her reasoning is that, this is so we will not fight over anything. I don't think that is going to happen between my brothers and I. Some time ago she gave me a wooden bowl and rolling pin that belonged to my great grandmother. The other day she gave me these items. First jello molds. Does anyone still use these? Anyway, mom did not use them, they hung on the kitchen wall for years. When she re-did the kitchen she packed these up. They were given to her my her mom, my grandmother. I am planning on hanging them in my kitchen since I have a lot of old items hanging on the wall. Next, a gourd. I was not going to take this but then she told me that my great aunt use to grow these. She gave this one to my mom. Mom had added the plastic fruit that I did remove, but I will also hang the gourd in my kitchen. And next comes the birdies! I remember

Privacy and Stairs

I live in a zero lot line, a townhouse duplex. I own my side and my neighbor owns her's. There is really not a lot of privacy when I am on my deck so I decided to let my side yard, the driveway grow up so I could have a side yard and a patio. Stepping stones. Please over look the mess, the yard had not been cut yet. Put this part of the yard is open to the rest of the drive way and the road so I decided to make it more private. But in doing that whatever I did had to be able to be moved if I needed to get a vehicle back there. The way my front porch is made you really can't move furiture in and out that way so you have to use the back door. At Lowe's the other day I ran across these panels. They are installed with stakes put into the ground and they lock together with another metal piece. Both the fence and the stakes can be removed. Looks so much better don't you think. I have chairs and a small table out

From Glass to an Ant

In my last blog a couple of weeks ago I blogged that I was looking at moving my blog. I did, I was able to get everything moved over but I never got around to using it. It was going to take so much to move my contacts and blogs I follow over so I am back here. actually blog.. A white glass vase, .99 cents at Goodwill. Rubberbands Round sticky yard sale tags  And black spray paint, forgot to take a pic of that... The results. I also picked this little guy up at Goodwill. 1.99 but he was a bit dull so that same can of black spray paint took care of him. He will look cute in the garden. Thanks for stopping by, Pam
