I have been having a want to add a little pink to my house. I think it is the spring flowers showing their faces, the nice weather...I am not sure. My favorite color all my life has been pink. Though I do not use it too much in decorating, I feel the need lately to add little touches of it.
Here is my latest project...
I was inspired by Lynn at Shabby Story here. Even though it is totally a different kind of clock it gave me the inspiration (and courage) to take this old clock apart and make it something I love. For many years this little clock from Target has been our friend--sitting on one of our fireplace mantles in our previous house. I can't even imagine the number of times I have looked at this clock to check the time. It used to look like this...
For many years this clock went perfectly in our home. But now that I am making my creative space in the sun room more girlie I needed this clock to be a different color.
I am happy with the new look!
Today was another beautiful day! It was 82 degrees--broke the temp record for this date. Last record for this date was 79 degrees, 30 years ago! So we may be on a roll now:)
I didn't get too much done in the yard though. I am such a wimp when it comes to temperature. I think I had heat stroke or something. I had been gardening for about a half hour and then almost fell over. I was seeing weird colors and stuff. I couldn't stand up. I called for the kids and Wyatt came and helped me to my bedroom--turned on the ceiling fan full blast and brought me a large glass of iced tea. I was feeling better pretty quickly. I was frustrated because I wanted to get more done! I went back out but the minute that sun hit me I felt dizzy again. Last year I did all the gardening the last couple hours before the sun went down. I think I will have to stick to that. It is so weird though because I do fine walking with my Mom even on really hot days. Maybe it is the getting up and down with gardening. I don't know. I worked a little in the evening and was just fine.
The kids and I did walk to Walmart. Chantel and Wyatt pooled their money to buy a Slip 'n Slide. They seemed to enjoy it. I think it will be a summer favorite! A great way to cool off. Of course, you won't see me trying that:) Slippin' and Slidin' is not good when you're 47!
This evening we finished off our summer like day roasting hotdogs on the back patio. Ever since the kids were babies they have liked doing that. We also made smores. This is about as close to having a camp fire as we get:)
Thanks for visiting!
