Ahhhh Summer

The past two weekends have been busy. Memorial weekend, we hosted the annual Lake Opener on our porch.. friends brought great food, we enjoyed catching up and look forward to lots of Bar-b-Q's, swimming, boating, skiing, jet skis, fishing, and sitting on the porch at the end of the day to watch the sunset.. and laying on the new round lounger reading a book, watching the wildlife or taking a nap under the ceiling fan, that lounger is perfect for nappin. I got the party lights up, and made a wreath for the back porch to welcome back door guests.. Using a kids inner tube, and goodies from the dollar store.. tied it on with some ribbon, fishin' line works good too. Next weekend we have invited some cousins to come stay and play.. so grab your sunscreen, flip flops and tank tops.. the boats full of gas and water is perfect !

Dresser is Done.... Art Studio is almost complete !

Seems like I started the room ages ago.. But actually just a lot has gone on in my life and I had to stop and start many times.. However.. the dresser we bought off EBay as is, I painted it french country and hand painted some flowers on it. Hubby cut a new top and back splash to follow the curve..since it was bought off EBay with out a top. It was shipped to OK from S. Carolina.. I did the Mosaic on top using old plates, and stained glass. and 1/2 marbles for the edge. I'm happy with the result, and glad to be done. The dresser will hold art supplies. More room photos soon... It should be finished by tomorrow night.. BUT I think we may go fish with the neighbors if we don't get rained out.. Will feel nice to go float on Hazels Pontoon boat..and catch some crappie or sand bass.. Yumm.. Peek back soon. I actually will be updating the blog often now that the room is going to be done.
