Mom and Dad got a new deck with a roof over it about 2 weeks ago. Mom is very excited-she's wanted a roof over the deck for a long time.
Mom's hens and chicks in piece of driftwood.
Mr. Bee on Mom's zinnia. He was on a yucky zinnia, so I moved him to a prettier one to make a prettier picture.
Here's Baby Elephant Cookie Jar. She was given to my mom by my grandma a long, long time ago. Today's the first time Mom or I noticed she was a baby. Note the bonnet and bib.
Mom's bistro set and Mom's mums. (Both gifts from Jodie-Well aren't you the good daughter today, Jodie?)
Finally, I drug this hap out to Mom's new swing. I made it for her. (Wait, maybe I'm the good daughter!)
Can you spy my baby in the center? Mom gave me her old grandma t-shirt (now-I don't mean old Grandma, I mean old t-shirt) to use in this hap.
So there you have it-some scenes from Mom and Dad's house. Hope you enjoyed the tour!☺

All that picture taking was making me tired. Break time, already! Left over coffee and a swing and satellite is all I need.☺ Now-I didn't work as hard as I could have-but there was a Mission Organization marathon on Fine Living and we don't have satellite at home. But I did do some work (see above).
And just because they're so darn cute I had to take a pic of a pic of my niece and nephew.
I just knew if I took my camera with me I'd find something to blog about.☺

Mr. Maple Tree volunteered to drop his leaves (yes-fall is here). So autumnal of him!
And I volunteered to take their pic-cause I'm nice like that.
Now, I must go volunteer my cleaning services at my lovely cousin Michelle's house.
Wait a minute-I guess I can't call it volunteering if I get paid. Oops-my bad. (Always wanted to write that.)

Then I trimmed off the excess fabric and turned it right side out. I then stuffed my good ol' potholder in the opening. Tried sewing the hole shut about five times with the machine. It looked terrible, "sew" I gave up. Then I took my ruler and washable marker and drew some squares (cause I can't sew a straight line to save my life)and sewed over them. I brought it up from the darkness of my basement and into the light of my dining room to sew the hole shut by hand and thought-this looks kind of like a pumpkin. So I got out the green seam binding and sewed a stem on as I was sewing the hole shut by hand.
Here's my potholder redo and Dawnie's. (See how big?)
I think they turned out pretty cute if I say so myself.
Now I must go clean something...cleaning is so overrated!☻
