The three above were given to me by my husband's grandmother and my grandmother. I did the embroidery on the top two and the bottom one was already done. I love embroidered pillowcases too. I think maybe because it makes me think of the wonderful grandmothers that were in my life.

I only spent a dollar or two on zinnias seeds. My daughter brought the rest of my flowers home from school (greenhouse leftovers). Until I planted them, most of them were half dead and I also didn't know what half of them were-so it was hit or miss. So, I'm really happy to see them bloom!

*Fruit juice is good too. Also, you can save the juice you (I) would normally dump down the drain-from canned fruit for making popsicles too.☺

I used some of my daughter photos to make greeting cards at Shutterfly.com. I'm really pleased. They look just as good as ones you buy in the store.
I don't know about you-but sometimes I have a hard time finding cards that are pretty and say what I want them to. That might not be a problem anymore. I'll just make my own-thank you very much!
Very affordable too. In fact, much more affordable than Hallmark-and just as nice, I think.

Just a minute-I'll look on the Yankee Candle website to see if they still make it.....nope, they don't make it anymore. Maybe they'll bring it back, someday. Darn those Yankee Candle people-they always take away the good scents.

Nope-I'm lying. It's toilet paper-but it has hearts on it!

It sat in our shed for a year or two-then my husband said he thought I better do something with it because it was in the way and it would get broke-yada, yada, yada.
***I did this in 2007 according to the back of the photos I scanned***
I love this thing!

These 4x4 inch stretched canvas prints arrived in the mail today. I ordered them from Artscow.com for $3.99 a piece. Using coupon code 4x4canvas399, good until July 31st.
I'm really quite happy with the quality of these. Especially for the price.
My daughter has been taking and editing some really cool photos lately, so I thought I might order some canvas prints of her cool pics. I may also make her a photo book of them too.
The only thing I am surprised about is that they are kind of shiny. Almost like they have a plastic coating on them.
I suppose that will make them easier to dust. Not that that will happen very often, in this house. But when it does, that inch of dust should be easy to remove!☺☺☺☺☺

Thank you Lord for smoke detectors!
Or those little figurines that come in every box of Redrose tea.

I felt sorry for them, so I adopted them into my home. (Didn't hurt that they were wearing red gingham!)
