Past Projects and Ideas to Share

June 30, 2012

Hello........It 's been way to long~
I have been taking somewhat of a break, I have had so much to digest in the last 2 months that I just had to put a few things on hold.  I am back now and so much to share.
Here is a custom order night light that I made with a cowboy flare.
I think it turned out so cute.  I found these small boots at a yard sale last summer.
 They were all black to start.
We finally got our bathroom remodel done and I will post those pictures tomorrow.
Blessings to all~

My Heart is in The Garden.........but,......

My heart is in the hands and body are busy doing other things!!!!
I painted this on a large enamelware lid that has been hanging out in the flower bed by the craft cabin.
Super busy this past few weeks.
My youngest son is graduating next month from high school, he is currently in the Delayed Entry Program to become a United States Marine. Saturday, we were at Buckley Air Force Base watching him and other Poolee's
at the annual Family Day. Drill Instructors from San Diego Marine Corp. Recruit Depot were there to give them a taste of Boot Camp. Very exciting to watch. My son is the one in front of the platoon. He has earned the position of Guide. So Very Proud of Him!
Sunday was branding day! We branded 82 calves. This is my oldest son and my sister in law.
This was the first time she ever touched a branding iron. She's hired!
The bathroom is slowly coming along. We ran into a snag once they pulled the toilet. Water damage to the floor, so a new sub floor had to be put in, and we had to find the flooring material that matched....shipped from Las Vegas, ended up in Kansas City, and now heading back to Colorado. Tomorrow is tile day!!!!
My parents were able to come over for the weekend events. My father made a whole bunch of these lathe stars for me to paint. This is the only one I have been able to finish.
He also made some beautiful magazine racks that I can't wait to paint.
That's it for now...

A house with a Cat....

I wanted to share this custom order that I just finished.
And a few farm animal magnets!
I have been cutting wood like crazy the past couple of days. The weather has been beautiful.
My youngest son is going to prom this weekend and then graduation is right around the corner.
In the middle of it all, we are having our bathroom remodeled.
I will post before and after pics, for right now here are the lights that are going next to the mirror.
The ones I ordered have an antique copper finish.

And this is the copper sink I picked out. It is oval~
And matching copper tiles for the back splash and around the shower.
It is fun to pick everything out as you imagine it looking in your head.....just hoping it all comes together in reality!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Computer Crash......Uuuugggghhhh!

It has been coming....I knew by the way the tower was starting to hummmmmmmm....the turtle pace at which it took to do anything....and died~
It all happened on January 29. My husband and I were headed to the NCBA (National Cattlemen's Business Assoc.) in Nashville for 4 days. So I was told that it would take 7 to 10 days and I would have a brand new, state of the art, faster than the wind, more memory than we could ever fill up, get the picture. I thought being that I would be gone for 4 days of the possible 10, that was reasonable. Well, it is now almost 30 days later, and I still have nothing but my old computer, with bits and pieces fixed, so I can still "try"to run the businesses and the odds of it crashing in the middle of trying to post this are pretty high!
So...sorry for not having posted in a while, I do have a give -a-way planned, and I have been getting a lot of painting done. Can't wait to show you~
Hopefully, I have been told that I should have the new computer by the end of next week......until then~

New Listing in my Etsy Shop~

I have had a couple of these old milk bottles for a few years now.
And I have decided that this is the year to paint on the things that I have had for a few years,
to de-clutter and simplify my stash....
Before another year goes by.....
Now I want to go find some more milk bottles, cause the possibilities are endless~

We have a batch of kittens that our barn cat decided to have on our back porch the day before a snow storm....I am pretty sure she planned the whole thing, knowing that I wouldn't let her brood freeze in the upcoming storm. So for the last 7 weeks, these cuties have lived in the mudroom and I have my own door draft blocker!!!!
This was taken last week from our back deck as the sun was setting over the mountains!
