Old Fashioned Pinning

I get so much inspiration from bloggers. Honestly I am sure that is one of the main reasons most of us blog...besides all the other good things about blogging!  I do the pinning thing...but wanted to do a board of the projects that are in my mind I want to do soon. Some people I have asked for permission to print something off their blog for my own personal use..but if I used a picture of yours and I didn't ask..please forgive me and let me know. I only use it for my own personal dreaming of projects I want to make for myself.:)

Here is what I made to put in my crafty room (formerly called the sun room) to inspire me to look forward to what I want to create next!

I think this looks pretty:) and it inspires me too. You can see I have very feminine taste. I realized after looking at this I like lots of fabric and lace.  I can't to wait to get working on these projects! I got this board at Goodwill a couple years ago. It is hinged so I can easily open it and change out my projects to do as need be.

Since my last post it was my little Grand-puppy Lacie's birthday. Nobody throws a puppy party like my daughter Janae.

She brought over Lacie's birthday outfit so I could make a hat to match. It has become a tradition that I make the first hat for each of her fur babies.

As usual..Duke was ready to party!

Janae and Lacie both looked so pretty.

Everybody had a lot of fun!

You can see the whole party on Janae's blog here.

The kittens are growing every day and bring so much joy to our family. Everyone, including my husband, is totally smitten with these kitties. Janae has her 3 living with her now so we just have Phoebe and Fez and we enjoy them so much!

I have been working on painting my secretary desk--as soon as I get pictures taken I will post it. It looks lovely!

Thanks for visiting!

Blogging is a whole new world for my generation, and a wonderful way to share thoughts and ideas. I look forward to reading yours and Janae's every morning.

That photo of Duke makes me laugh every time I see it.

Hi Sandy!

Love the inspiration board. You are a 'girly girl' for sure!

That shadowbox picture frame was a good find at the GW. I have two from Marshall's and have yet to do anything with them (two years). I was thinking about showcasing my mothers old costume jewelry in them.

I bet you get those inspiration projects done long before I get mine started...

All the animals are so cute, I will have to go visit Janae and see what she has been up too. Miss seeing her at the party, and I just forget to visit :/

Thanks for sharing today :)

xoxo Bunny Jean

That is a beautiful board you made. It's so convenient that it has hinges. Your dog Duke stole my heart with that wee crown and huge glasses. It's just too cute!

Lovely inspiration board! I too get a lot, if not all, of my inspiration from blogs. I get that.

I can't believe your daughter was able to get all those cute critters to pose for the camera. I'm amazed! Sooo cute! The kittens sure lucked out with your family! They look very well surrounded. And everyone gets along???

(I have a little tiara hair clip for my bichon too!)

How cute is that little birthday hat?! I love it, Sandy! Janae really does such a good job {or she must be an animal whisperer} to get them all to sit so nice for a picture. Can't wait to see your desk!
