Sunsets/ Blooms/ Project
Count down for Christmas
cards is about done...
This is card 13 and
my all time fave one.
Theres no place like home...
for the holidays!
When going to the store lately I am
trying really hard to make sure
I don't buy sugary or scratch
type foods. But the other night I
ran in Aldi's store to grab a few
things and saw this..
I walked past it....twice.
Went back and got some anyway.
A mistake I don't need to make again.
IT WAS SO GOOD.
To help get it out of the house I sent
a bunch home with my youngest
brother yesterday. I made some
veggie soup and cornbread, it was
his day off so I sent him some.
He called today to tell me that he ate
some soup last night and more today.
BUT he finished off the popcorn treats
Caught this sunset last night on the
way to the barn.
Fall in TN produces the best sunsets.
Got this one yesterday also.
Sunset over Nashville.
See the buildings to the right...
A couple of years ago my mom
gave me her Christmas cactus.
It never bloomed for her.
But after a summer on my deck with
and this is what I have going on.
The other day I saw the coolest thing
of Pinterest that I really wanted
to make but it was not till I
went to the shed today and saw
I was not having the best of days but
I decided that I wanted to
create, pain or not so ...
I took the step stool to the
kitchen along with this piece
of wood that you see on the top
of the stool.
Then, I pulled out this bathroom rug
I had stashed back. I stashed it away
for a cat tower I wanted to make.
I used my electric staple gun to
attach the rug to the piece of wood.
Have you figured out yet what this
I also covered the two steps up
and wapped the front legs
in rope that I bought back
in the summer for redoing Lily's
perch. For those with cats you
know what the rope is for but
for those that don't know, the
wrapped rope is for the cats
to stratch their nails on.
Then I took this pillow
sham I picked up at Goodwill
last yr. I got two for 1.99
and I cut one up for my stuffed pumpkins.
But I had this other one that
I knew was perfect for what I needed.
I tied it to the bottom of
the stool and before I could
even get it all the way tied
Lily Bit decided to check it out
and she jumped right in.
I think she likes it.
This is the end project. But I failed
to take a pic of the front with the
covered steps and the rope and I was
just to lazy to go upstairs tonight to
do that. haha
Anyway, I love a simple, easy, fast
project where I am recycling items to
other things. The wooden step stool
was a find and needing some tightening
up. The rug was recycled from the
bathroom, the pillow sham was
a Goodwill buy and the rope I had
purchased before. I did not have to
run out and get anything.
After this project that took
only about 30 tp 45 mins I
took a break and enjoyed my heated
Then to the barn to feed.
Here is the sunset on the road
to the barn.
Check out what Lily has been up to
