Chalk it up!

I love a blank chalk board! I love great quotes!
I love the new liquid chalk pen I got from amazon!
It let's you write fonts that are hard to write
w/ a stubby piece of chalk!
You can buy them at Michael's too in the wedding
section! Oh the hours of fun to be had!!
Oh it stays on better then chalk you can wipe your hand against
it and it will stay (perfect for on a porch!) but wipes off w/ water!

Happy New Years EVE!!

Snow Blown!

Snow blowing and life lessons!
*Let the snow blower do the work. It is slow but it is hard work to
force it to do anything but what it wants to do.
*You will stink of exhaust.
*You will get wet!
*You will make mistakes you'll have to go back and fix.
Making the whole process longer!
*Wear the right clothing. Pants that fall down at every turn..
Not good snow blowing attire!
*Watch a u-tube video before attempting snow blowing!
*Boots would be nice!
*While blowing, lots of other snow will fall. Don't get down!
What little (3") you do blow is better then none at all.
*Clean off your car before said snow blowing!
*You will look like a fool!
*The drowned rat look is ugly...but sometimes one
has to sacrifice. Take one for the team!
*It helps to have a song in your head the entire time!
*There is a fine art to snow blowing...and you ain't got it!
Maybe next time!!
Happy Snow Day!

The favorite things I was able to give away this year!
The chair below I found and spruced up and then added
my sister in laws address. I do believe everyone needs
a darling porch chair. It really does make the world a better place.
Had I had my way, I would have spray painted it aqua..alas my sister
is a bare wood kinda a girl so I did what she would like best!

I also made these for my chubby 8 (almost) month old 
nephew and for my tiny (to be born any day) baby nephew!
(Eli come out!!)

Other random gifts given. None of which pictured!
I did receive a heat gun so I can refinish a piece of furniture!
I've always wanted to be the type of girl who "packed heat!"
"Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!"

Sweater Weather!

This fall I spotted this baby at Anthropologie.
It was well over 100.00 but cute!
Earlier in the year I had happened on this cashmere
sweater set. For FIFTY CENTS!! It was one size to big and it had a stain
about the size of a dime on the boob.
Today it snowed. It wasn't safe to go any where,
and tis Christmas Eve!
So I sat and made this (covering the stain):

I noticed while doing a photo shoot there
is a stain on the inner wrist,
 so I guess I'll just never raise my hand!  
Merry Christmas!

So cute!! Found here!
*I am so tired!
*4 days till Christmas!
*I got to spend time w/ my favorite "sweet like a cookie"
little man today! Loved!
*I grabbed a free treat by the register while waiting in
line at Hallmark. Sadly the treat wasn't Free!!
*Some time soon a little tiny nephew will join us
in the outside world! I keep thinking any day now!
*The 26 acts of kindness! Awesome!
*I wish I could be creative all
waking hours of my life! (Or almost)
*I use this and I love it!
*I didn't buy a few vintage bottle brush trees..
and now I feel so sad! (I'll get over it!)
*I have a mad crush on Salvage Dogs
 on DIY network!! Dream Job!!
*I always order stuff off random sites and then get
"Fraughted"! You'd think I'd learn!!
**I love Mr. Rogers! I love this quote.
 “When I was a boy and I would see scary
 things in the news, my mother would say to me,
"Look for the helpers.
You will always find people who are helping.”
Fred Rogers
Merry Christmas!

Peace on Earth!

And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men."

Millcreek Mojo and stuff!!

Last weekend I did the craft boutique! It was fun.
It was a lot of work and It is super intimidating!
It feels nice to pass tdarling things on to fun new homes!
I had lunch w/ the besties!
Fell in love w/ the tiny Ikea trees above!
Ran into Trader Joes and was shocked by the
number of people. Took a few pictures and decided
midday midweek is the only way to go while the place is still
"Brand New!"  Ran right back out!
The store felt so Portlandesqu!
I wanted a tiny sparkley tree! 3.99!
 I would have got one had the lines not
been super de duper de long!

I swooned over the boxwood wreaths!! So darling
and for ten bucks WHY NOT!!
I'll make another trip someday when the place isn't
WALL TO WALL people. Until then
I'll just fill my head w/ tiny trees and boxwood wreaths!
Almost died on the way home. This is the play by play on facebook:
"While driving on I-15 tonight I found my self in inches of unharmed snow on the freeway and no cars to follow. I decided I'd drive "dead center" (bad choice of words?) and pray for the best!! Holy cow my arms hurt, I was holding on for dear life!! Wozers!!"
Happy Holidays!
Glad to be back!!
(Darn Blogger!)


While I coudn't be Amish I am sure I'd like
the Amish people if I knew them!
In Willard Utah they have a super fun Amish store.
Lots of bakeing supplies in bulk!
Stop in and visit!

Home Tour and return!!

A few weeks ago our little city had a home tour. While all the homes
were nice only this one was darling. It was built in the 1880's
in Willard Utah by the early pioneers! Oh if walls could talk.
