She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

A Splash Of Color

I just love color, I tried to do the all whites and creams and as much as I love that look,
I love color.
Be Blessed, Melissa

Remember This

Remember this cabinet, months ago I did a blog and showed you this cabinet.

I liked this cabinet just the way it was, I thought it had charm in its natural state. That is not like me to keep a piece of wood furniture in it's natural state, I always paint it.

I tried to sell it on craigslist a couple of times and no hits, I know the price was right, so it must be the cabinet.

After weeks of deciding what color to paint it, one night about 3am in the morning it hit me the same color I used on my collage art.
I love this color!
It reminds me of a beach cottage.


Here she is now.

Don't you just love the way she turned out?
The cabinet is now sitting pretty in my booth at Valley Antiques awaiting it's new owner to come and pick her up.

WOW where do I start, this has been a crazy busy fun summer this far.
I know a couple of weeks ago I started a box of stuff for my 100 follower giveaway, I have not forgot about that, I'm still finding items for the box. It is how ever taking me some time.
I have been gardening, the pic at the top is some fruits of my labor.
Oh of course I have been indulging in some Yard Sale's

This is not me, I did however take a picture so next year my hubby can rig something up for me!
The town I live in every 4th of July they have a HUGH Yard Sale , I mean HUGH!!! Miles and Miles of ALL day yard sale..

I bought one of these feed carts for my garden.

Oh my, now this is me I have been walking now for about 4 hours, have about 5 hours more to go...UHG...

We brought a wagon along but I think I might have to have this cart, oh well the lady won't sell it.

it's 9:30am time for some food, at our old favorite place, we stop here every year. The best Hot Dogs in town.

There is not much you won't find here.

After the first couple of toilets we saw I had to start taking pic's of them. They were everywhere, I couldn't believe how many people was selling their toilets.

ok I really have to go is anyone looking!!!

decisions decisions, do the kids really need this.
Sure they do, so off to the van it went.
What beautiful fireworks the town put on this year, Jim, Tanner and I was laying in the back of our van with a cooler full of cold drinks and some snacks watching fireworks, lovin life..

We had a July 4th cook out on the 3rd, I told tanner we couldn't eat until Nanny & Pappy showed up, so he sat in the front yard with his plate waiting on them.
They were only about 5 min late. So Tanner didn't starve.
Me, my sister and some friends took our kids to an amusement park for the day, I needed two days just to recover from that..

Lots and Lots of pool side fun ,

My sister Andrea ran her first 5k this summer, so proud of her.
check out her story here ...( )

We did it!!!

Here she is one of the cutest little girls ever, Rachel our grand daughter had her first dance recital. So proud of her.

Well there you have it I have been keeping very busy this summer, and thats just what I have pics of....we spent a day at the lake fishing and swimming. Lots of days by our pool with friends and the grand kids, entertaining Tanner for the summer, we took in a couple of movies with him and his friends. Going to alot of auctions and yard sales to keep my booth stocked, because I'm selling some stuff let me tell ya, so tickled with what my space is doing.
I hope all of you are having as much fun this summer as I am..
