Finally the rusty old bike is painted pale pink..and polka dotted.. Robin over at Candy Creek has been telling me for years to paint that old thing. I wish my paint was more pink, but I may run across a brighter pink in spray paint. This color is called ballet slipper, and it is not my favorite pink..and I am normally one that loves any color pink. But for now it beats that rust that covered it before ! I got this bike at a junk store for $36 when we were building the lake house, hauled it to Colorado were we were living and used it there till we moved. So Robin , when you get here in July.. you will be happy to see it NOT rusty ! Oh we are going to have some new adventures in junkin' !

Many years ago we planted a 3 foot tall magnolia tree in my Moms yard.. And now it is so tall, Mom has been gone for 3 years now... and when I went by her old place I saw the tree in full bloom. I sure wish that tree was in my yard now. I am sure the blooms are extra sweet because of you Mom !
I am just ashamed at myself at how much time has past since I last posted on my blog.. I either need to commit to this blog, or NOT keep it. I have spent too much time on Facebook, and Pinterest. and that Pinterest gives me more ideas of things to make so it is a vicious cycle. I am going to do my best to work on this blog more.. I have several new projects I have done.. so I better get them posted..ASAP.. So thank you for your patience..and I hope you all stop by and see what I have been up too. !
