Alive and not well

Well I am alive but I have had the worse cold, allergy, sinus with a hacking cough ever! I am feeling much better today, thank God cause it was really kicking my butt!
I wanted to get on here and not only let you know I am still living...but I have goodies to share. I did a swap with Jenn at Bittersweet Prims and here is what she sent me:
The stump doll, the sweet little cupboard angel and the little bag. This is my open front cabinets in my kitchen.

In my hallway near my laundry area I hung the other sweet angel and the wool bag!
I just love everything...and it makes me so happy everytime I pass them. She does wonderful work! Thanks Jenn!!!!

A couple of weeks ago I made this Dry Goods sign for my kitchen (the same open front cabinets as above)
I was very pleased with it.
I did get our barn painted.... Have I ever told you how much I love my Wagner Power Painter ....I do.I do! (I did paint the singles a bad!)
I finished up my textile swap and got it sent out just in time this afternoon. I sure hope she likes her goodies!
I have some makeovers to share too....I will get them on later this week. Right now I am gonna catch up on some blog reading while I eat some fat free rainbow sherbet (my fave)!

This & That Tuesday

Hello my friends. I trust that everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July weekend. We did grill out.....but most of the weekend was spend working on our continuing house projects. We finished the main construction of our barn, still have to add the doors and I would like a cupola on top. I will be painting this today....guess what color!

Here are a few TS finds ......

I found the little wood towel rack, the napkins (I got all they had left), and the little metal grater at Habitat Restore. I found the little crock at a TS and the little wood with tile thing at good will. Which 2 of these things can you put together to form one prim thing?
Ta-daaa! My make do grater now hangs on the side of my cabinet.

I finally painted 2 sets of shaker boxes that I have had for along time.
I am pleased with the way they look, now I have a round set to complete.

Here are a couple of shots of my little plantings..... I love the creeping jenny in the coffee pot....

hen and chicks in a chicken feeder and moss rose in a bread box.

And now I will leave you with some sweet blog will not be disappointed!!!
I just found this it! Na-Da Farm Great old fashion gardens and.......

Oh my goodness.....I will have one of these water garden beds

check out Cindies Garden Oh....good stuff and......

Well my butt cheeks are going numb...a sure sign I have sitting on it to long!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
