Flying Away

I'm going to fly away for a few days 
 to visit our sweet little Granddaughter
 I'll miss you all  ...  but even still, I can't wipe away this smile!

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

This is all about the mirror ... but even more, it's about the continuing change in our home.

This mirror hung above the mantel in our previous home and looked very nice. Still,  I had always wanted to paint it or do something to the frame to give it more character ... I hesitated only because it was New, and I was afraid I would ruin it.

It's in our dining room now and I like the way it expands the space, but the frame still bothered me ... 
 ... So, I pulled it down, took a deep breath, and started distressing it using a fine grit sanding sponge.  I'll admit it was a little scary at first, because there was no going back, but the more I sanded, the more I liked it.

This Distressed look isn't for everyone, but I love it!  
Lesson learned.... This isn't just about changing the mirror, or our's about change in me. 

Who do I have to thank?  All of You, who continually inspire me with your wonderful projects!


Have a Blessed Day!

Springtime in January...

I've noticed a lot of people commenting on how warm it has been ... Same Here.  Last week was more like Springtime than January.  

Buzz and I took full advantage by walking around the neighborhood and started noticing some really cute bird houses.  I decided to photograph them ...  and share a few of our favorites! 

This one is really cute, but I'm thinking no one has ever made a nest in it.
 Hands Down... This was our favorite...It sits high up on a pole.
You can tell the birdies like it too!
 This one reminded us of Lincoln Logs

And then there were these guys...
 At first they were afraid of us, 
but their curiosity got the best of them...
Wasn't it nice of them to pose for us.

By the way... it doesn't feel much like Springtime anymore.
Back to Reality!

Hope you're having a nice Monday!

Simple Pleasures

Have you ever noticed how pretty a
 steaming cup of coffee can be? 

When I sat down to read this morning, I couldn't stop gazing at the steam rising from my coffee cup.  I decided to grab my digital camera to try and save the moment...

The picture reminds me that it's the simple things in life that give us so much pleasure ... I'm just hoping I can remember this as I maneuver through my day ":o)
