Recap of June!!

  June was a crazy busy month here in our little piece of the world.
We stripped the shingles off the house and shored up all the "soft" spots.
This equaled five trips to the dump and one to the metal recycling plant. 
We got all the water proofing down on the roof just in time for a HUGE rain storm to hit! A down pour like this in a few minutes scares us desert dwellers.
We survived but many houses around us had flooding in their basements.
Let the shingle laying begin!
What a huge project.
In between all this my daughter graduated from High School. 
As you can see from all the cords around her neck she earned many awards.  She makes us proud.
With any project around here, there is always a Sunday you have to get on the roof with your Sunday best on to fix something on the roof....glad he did not do a header off the roof.  It was worth going to church after this!!

So in between all this madness there were birthdays, my niece's wedding, Father's Day, Scout Camp, out of town visitors....you get the idea.  The list is long.
Yes, even had a couple of custom orders to do.
This is just one of them and I love how this turned out!!
Now do I dare hope that July might be any slower and a bit more relaxing?
I don't think so by looking at my calendar!
Hope you all are enjoying your summer at a slower pace!
Enjoy,

Happy Memorial Day!!

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!!
We were suppose to be re-shingling our roof this weekend with some help from my brothers but with all the rain we have had we had to postpone doing the roof.
We will be having a picnic with family here.
I guess the roof will be done over the coarse of the summer.
It always comes down to the best laid plans!
Enjoy your holiday,

This is all around just the feel of summer!
So WELCOME Summer!!
It will be raining here for the most part all of the weekend and next week!
We need the rain so it is welcomed too!
Enjoy your weekend,

A Summer Celebration Coming Soon!


Interesting how time flies!
We have been busy with spring cleaning, graduation from High School, Scouts, Church and everything in between!

My Spring show went well and now I am gearing up for the Taste of Summer Celebration with the Old Farmhouse Gathering Team on Etsy.

I am not sure we will be seeing summer here....it is now cold and rainy.
Just in time to re-roof  and shingle our house!!

Hope you all are doing well and ready to enjoy Summer!

Some New Things!

Amazing what you can do under pressure!
I decided to do a spring show and it is right around the corner.

 I am trying to paint up a storm and also list some new things to my Etsy Shop.

We had snow on the tulips the other day but it melted fast.

It truly has been a strange winter....especially when you finally turn the heat on in the house at the end of March!

Wishing all of you a great day with sunshine!
Enjoy,
Barb
