Hello Darlin'

I sat down last night and just let the spirit move me and this is where I ended up at. I bought this lace on clearance for 25 cent a yard, I took what was left of the spool which was three yards. I was happy with that, I adore the lace.  I'm off to hook up with some challenges.  Thank you for stopping by. Blessings, Jane

Something to think about

I saw this on Facebook, one of my friends posted it and said to go ahead and use it if I like.  I prefer you not meet Jesus any time soon.  Be careful out there!!   Blessings, Jane

Topsy Turvy Tomatoes

I decided to start monitoring some of my walking to see exactly how much (or how little) I was doing so I needed to pick up a new battery for my OMRON meter and while I was at the drug store I  saw these  (as seen on TV) hanging plant growers!  Yes, those displays actually do work to get the merchandise sold!!!  Those tomatoes look so tasty in the photo so I thought I buy it and give it a go, thinking I would hang it off of my gazebo then I decided to buy two, Haha.  Both are doing well right now, one is a "Big Boy" and the other is a Cherry Tomato.  I have seen some blossoms on both but nothing  the shape of a tomato.  I'll keep you posted on when and how well my tomato plants are growing - whether I get a bumper crop or not.

Thanks for stopping by, Blessings~Jane

Tear Bear Easel Card "Happy Little Thoughts"

Ha, yes, my card making has been spotty lately but today I blog you this card.  I made this card with 'NO' image nor sketch, so sadly it did not fit many challenges but I really like how it came out.  I do enjoy these Tear Bear gals/guys.

                                        Full frontal view of the sentiment
                                                   A side view

Silver Sunday

Just when I found out about White Wednesday, Silver Sunday catches my eye.  This is an old wash tub that I have on my front porch with flowers in it.  I have placed this on my porch in winter also with Spruce tips and Christmas lights.  This post is for Silver Sunday.  Hoping they will let me play LOL, maybe this is more gray than silver.  

This wash tub has the word 'Johnson' on the front , maybe you can see the words if you enlarge the photo.

I love this bunny and my sign, "Dream".  There is also a Hosta in back there. Thank you for stopping by, Jane

Feminine card for all occasions

Thanks so much for your visit.  I made this card to have on hand, she turned out to be a little plump but she shore is pretty!!  I used pale peach papers and a paper doily, ribbon and flowers from a Spring bush and a heart charm from the bridal section and put it all together, no image required for this beauty.

White Wednesday, Clear Vase with Baubles and Lace

I am so happy to join in with White Wednesday on this Thursday.  I just adored all the entries last week and want to thank those who took the time to leave me a kind word, I have to admit I have not been on my computer as much the past few weeks,  I have many balls up in the air right now.  I vow to kick up my time management skills, they are a wee bit rusty!   Now on to White Wednesday!!!
I have a vase here, I have been purchasing them to get ready for a large party I will be hosting in September, I have a few more to buy.  Inside is small white glass Christmas ornaments along with some white pearl garland and some laces and trim which I have no doubt you will be seeing those again on future posts.  Thank you Faded Charm for your hospitality.  Blessings, Jane.
