Happy Thanksgiving!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I heard a quote not long ago that I have thought about a lot about ever since. It went something like this...

"What if you woke up today with only what you thanked the Lord for yesterday"? 

This has changed the way that I think in remembering all that I am thankful and joyful for. Thank you my Lord and Savior for all that you have blessed me with. 

I hope that you and your families are having the most fabulous day. We made it home last night and it has been so wonderful. I'm sitting here with Kirk and Lily with a mimosa in hand. I wonder if Shep is going to wake up in time for the dinner.

Until next time...

Ode to gold

Oh how I love gold! I can't believe I have dedicated a post to gold until now. Some people are afraid to decorate with gold. I guess I can see why. If it isn't done correctly, it can look not so great. But, if done just right, it adds a great sense of glamour and regency. Here are some photos of all types of lovely ways that gold is used. Enjoy!

Until next time...

Little monster

Happy Monday everyone! How was your weekend? Ours was really full, but really good. I decided to make my version on a monster t-shirt for Shepherd during his nap and the Razorback game on Saturday. First of all, can you believe those Hogs?!! Woo pig sooie!! Here is how it turned out on my little model.
ps. Applique is so fun!

Here are two finds that I got this past Saturday when we stopped at a garage sale that we saw on our way to a birthday party. Gotta love the sales you stumble upon!

I love the foo dog popular right now. I'll have to find a shade for it. The one it came with was so revolting that I immediately had to throw it away. 

I love vintage baskets. This one looked just like the baskets that we used to put our clothes in at the pool I went to as a kid. Perfect for Shep's toys. 

After doing one applique shirt, I am hooked. Here is the t-shirt that I just finished for Shepherd to wear Friday for the big Arkansas vs. LSU game. Go Hogs Go!

Until next time...

Applique interest

Happy Friday everyone! I hope that you all are enjoying this Friday. What are your plans for this weekend? I feel like our calendar is filling up faster than I'd like with the holidays approaching. I really love parties and get togethers, but we have had something to do every night the past few weeks. And I am starting to get exhausted before the holidays are even upon us! So, what do I do? Start a new project of course! I have been wanting to make Shepherd some appliqued t-shirts for a while now. I've been patiently waiting for my promotional-product-company-owner-husband to get me some free samples for weeks now. But, he's extremely busy, so I went out and bought a few yesterday. Here are a few shirts that have given me inspiration.

Easy peasy. Pics to come when completed.

Until next time....

Thirty and Seventeen

Yep, that's me. A week ago I turned the big 3-0. I still feel like I'm in college, so I am not worried a bit about my thirties. Goodbye my lovely twenties! I won't miss you a bit...well, maybe a little.

My little toot also had a landmark on my big day. Somebody is seventeen months old now. These days Shepherd in all about cleaning. He loves wipes, brooms and the miniature vacuum cleaner at church. I just bought him a toy broom for Christmas yesterday...don't tell him. He says ball, moo, woof woof, ma ma and da da. But, his favorite word is dooad. When I ask him if he is ready for breakfast (or any meal for that matter), he runs over to his high chair and tries to climb it.  He loves bath time and enjoys his turtle and pulling the plug. Shep is a very good eater, which just so happens to run in the family. I love you my little honeybee...there are no words. 

This was me at Shepherd's age. Any resemblance?

Until next time...

Chirp chirp

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today's post is all about birds. For a few years now, Kirk has really been interested in birds. I have come to love them as well. They are just so beautiful and interesting. And how cool would it be to be able to fly? I bought four burl frames that I was going to put intaglios in that I bought on ebay. But, as it turns out, the frames aren't deep enough to hold the plaster. So, now I am on the search for some great bird prints. Here are a few that I found that I like. Enjoy!

 This is my all time favorite. If anyone knows where I can find this print, you would make a girl really happy.

Until next time...
