My Mermaid

I have wanted a Mermaid for our lake house.. so finally saw one at a cement yard ornament place.. we drove past  it and spotted it hanging on a building in the lot.. it looked like it was going to be huge..so a month later I went back to check it out.. It was only 3ft. tall.. and oh so afordable.. It is cement so kinda heavy.. brought it home, primed it, and painted it.. added some glitter sparkle.. all mermaids shimmer... then the bling of diamonds..from all the treasures they find in the deep blue sea..She is hanging by the back door entry.. since it is the door visitors get to first from the road.. our front of the house faces the water.! Stop by and say Hi to the mermaid !

Beachy SIgn

We see this style of signs in Florida.. there is a really fun one at LuLu's Homeport, in Gulf Shores Alabama.. at the bestest eating place in Florida. LuLu is Jimmy Buffets Crazy Sista !! We usually drive 2 hours to get there just for a nice time. LOVE  IT.  SO we decided to add names and places of friends we want to go see.. We definitely must see Debbie in New Jersey, and Ashley in Canada..  and so far we still need to go see the Mermaids at Weekiwatchee. Other than those 3 destinations, we have been to all the other spots !  We have our condo rented for September at Navarre already..  Of course there is the sign All Roads Lead to Sonic..being such Sonic drive-in fans.. and Sonic was started in Oklahoma. Notice the signs pointing to the Shower on the deck...and to the swimming hole.. oh come on spring.. we need to jump in the lake !

Hoppy Easter !

I love making frosted sugar cookies... and love eating them even more.. I saw some Easter bunny cookies on Pinterest,

 and then did them my way.I have a recipe for the cookies and frosting I have used for years.  Pastel colors scream SPRING ! They were sooo yummy! Next I bet I bake and decorate some flower cookies !

Back to the Blog..finally

WOW,  I am so behind in blogging. We were at the beach in Marco Island Florida for Jan, and Feb. We love spending part of winter in Florida..in the fall we spend 2 months in Navarre beach, fl..and it is soo nice..any way, once we got home and settled..it turned cold and dreary.. my motivation was lost.. I realized it was a good time to work on inside projects while I plan for outside projects..since outside ones have to wait for good weather due to painting etc. So finally I will be posting pictures soon. Today was nice enough to do some spring planting and yard clean up. I have some new ideas for out door decor.. sooo peek back soon.. I AM going to be posting !
