It has been a nice weekend. Spent some time visiting a new baby (the first of Janae's friends to have a 2 legged baby) and I also got a lot of cleaning done. Always feels good! To make things even better..
..we had rain! I took this tonight at 8 pm when the rain started. I was so happy I had to post about it on Facebook...and found that everyone was posting about the rain. Us Oregonians love our rain! I feel refreshed. The kids jumped on the trampoline and let it soak in.
I brought in some Glads--I think they are so pretty! Phoebe seems to like them too. My Dad got me this large vase at a garage sale and it is just perfect for my Glads!
I got these frames at Goodwill and I did my paint 'em white and distress them with Rub n Buff treatment on them.
Now I just have to take some pictures to put in them! I am hoping to get some good ones of the girls (Janae and Chantel) for these.
Walter feels pretty special in his new "hamster tote" that Chantel made for him.
I finished washing the rest of the slipcovers I started last weekend. Fez thought sitting on the cushions while the slipcovers were in the washing machine would be comfortable.
Oh, also I wanted to share what I got with my birthday money from my parents.
Okay--so matter what I do I can't get this the right way--but you get the idea. I got this beautiful necklace..angel wings. I love it. I got it from Stacy's Shabby Shoppe It is rare that I get something to adorn myself..rather than my home:)
Then when Janae, Chantel and I were coming back from visiting the new baby, we stopped at Ikea. I have been wanting this stuff from Ikea ever since Janae got me the dish towels. So I spent the rest of my birthday money from my parents on this.
Now besides the dish towels I have the bun warmer (I have always needed one of these!) the apron and the pot holders. I love this Ikea line! Thanks Dad and Mom!
This upcoming week should be a fun one. Next Saturday is Chantel's 14th birthday and my 1 year anniversary of blogging! Chantel decided things are just too busy to have a friend party. So she decided she wants Janae, her, and I to go to the beach. She wants to take the dogs. That will be fun! On Wednesday Janae is paying for her to have a ride pass at the fair..I am going that day too. We are going thrifting in the morning and the fair in the evening. That should be another fun day!
Can't believe she is almost 14.
