Back to School, A New Friend, and a Giveway

What a summer!!  We finally got the outside of the house done!!
Celebrate!!
 
 
The kid's rooms are repaired after the window installation!
Celebrate!!
Now need the deep clean.
We (husband) are now painting the front room. 
Kind of miss my rustic red wall but I think the new colors my husband picked will be good and a nice change. 
Kids went back to school!!
 I am trying not to be too excited but some peace and quite will be nice.
I will try to catch up with everyone over the next few weeks! 
Celebrate!!
The kids left me a little note, bon-bons and a six pack of Diet Pepsi to Celebrate their first day back to school.  They even thanked me for a great summer!  Poor things...they really worked hard this year. 
This cutie was painted by my new Etsy friend Amie of Willow Tree Designz
She bought a couple of patterns from me not to long ago and was quick to paint this up.  I love to see how others take a pattern and make it there own.  She has a cute shop that you will want to check out.
Thanks Amie for sending me this photo and for allowing me to share it. 
Well what better way to Celebrate then to have a quickie giveaway!!

Enjoy your day,
Barb

  2. Hello,I remember that feeling like it was yesterday!! The kids are off to school, and you look around the house, and it's so quiet- and then you have grand kids, and it starts all over again. Enjoy your bon-bon's and pepsi, Anna

  11. Barb,

    Well celebrate big time...the house is done outside, the kids are in school and the hubby is doing the painting...that's a win-win-win in my book. Love your lil scarecrow. Toss my name in the hat, purdy please. Take care.
