On the Cheap

I have been searching for several months now for just the right thing to hang above the toilet in my powder bath. I finally decided to make my own.
Container: $10 at Hobby Lobby - 1/2 off
Feathers: $2 at Hobby Lobby - 1/2 off
Greenery: $3 from yard sale for a big bunch of it
Knowing I spent less than $20 bucks on this pretty arrangement: priceless

The Little Joys...

One of my favorite things - practical, yet so stylish.. love it!

Hides the bread and much more. Isn't it fun?

Tiny faux petit-fors and chocolates. They add just the right touch to the cake pedestals.

What brings you joy? It is most often in the little things....

A Great Summer Day

Big D got off early today, so we decided to make a run for it and head to a nearby lake. It was great! I think we may have found a neat spot to go - it looks as if they have so much to do for families. So fun!

I was also perusing one of my favorite sites and came upon this feast for the eyes. Doesn't it look yumm-o? I really must have this for breakfast soon.

Have a great weekend everyone!

I will add pics soon, promise....

The 3 birdies and I headed out to a local aquarium today. During our afternoon excursion, I noticed an atrocity.

Mustaches on female faces are NEVER acceptable, people. I repeat - NEVER acceptable.

Thank you.

Starting Over

Starting over, again....hey, isn't that a song? I am going to try to start blogging here everyday...that is my goal! Hope do you like the new look? You'll have to settle for the same ol me, but I am going to try to make this a fun place to visit. Stop in, kick back and get outta the heat. Let's enjoy this journey together!
~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
