I've been tweaking...and a Mya fix

Why is it when you are desperately looking for something, you can never find it.  I looked high and low for months to find just the right picture for over my bed, to no avail. 

I walked into my fav store last week, minding my own business with no money in my pocket to spare... and there is was.  Sitting out in the open isle just taunting me.  The oot oot sound came rolling off my tongue loudly, so I knew it was the one for sure.  I know, I am a bit strange... but that is what happens when I find something I really, really love. 

Do you do strange things like that too?  It does bring a few odd stares from the people around you but they get over it quickly... lol.

the size and colours were perfect... typography... it was love at first sight...

and the price was right
no glass to create glare... framed just right... yeap it was calling my name alright. 

Last weekend I made this shelf to replace the black one that I put up earlier but I didn't like it.

 I had the wood sitting in the "wanna be " pile forever.  It was stained dark brown so I used watered down primer to lighten it up and then sanded it.  The old rusty tin was from a ceiling tile I cut down to size... I am still not too sure if the tin is going to stay but for now I am calling it done... and the price $0.00.

I am sure it will be tweaked a million more times until I get it right... for now it is just going to have to do. 

I am off to enjoy my long weekend and hope you take some time to enjoy also.  The weather is co-operating for a change... so no working for this girl, it is all about relaxing. 


 Can't forget your Mya fix...

checking out a bug...

she is getting so big...

I am convinced kids don't need toys... she found a hauling strap and played with that thing forever... she is trying to tie it around herself like a belt...


quite proud of herself


hugs for Poppi

and hugs for Gramma

check out her chair... she couldn't sit in it without it moving so she flipped it over and sat with no problem...lol

bringing Gramma a dandelion to blow...


Well that's it folks... hope you all have a great weekend and thanks for popping in.

Hugs,
