Even the Chickens are Busy

My week was very productive
and at least one chicken was busy
as you can see from the pic
we got our first egg
It only cost me two hundred plus dollars
hopefully, we will have more

I saw this shelving on the internet
and quickly pinned it to my pinterest board
furniture my hubby could make
with a few trips to the hardware store
cussing, rolling of the eyes, (all done by him)
telling me how much he hates threaded pipe
it got done
I love it
I am going to use it in the vintage market

I have been sewing up a storm
and if you know me
I don't sew
I am a very unconventional sewer
I do not know what I am doing
but I love it

A Bow and What I Wore on Sunday

Bows bows bows
I have been seeing them everywhere
I happened upon this one by accident
a mishap in sewing
led me to being creative
maybe I will make some for the vintage market

I found the skirt above while thrifting
it is my all time favorite
I want to wear it everyday
I will also confess
that I wore no make-up to Mass
dark circles and all


what are you wearing?

Pins from the Week

photos on Houzz

I really like the word
just not in this context
I have a daughter who looks a little different
and that will definitely make you humble
but when it comes to my opinion
that one is hard to swallow
I just know I am right

I love the simplicity of this bathroom
I would probably throw in a bit of color
with a little pink or fuschia

I love the mix of art work on the last pic
and the gold and black frames

if you know the sources of the first two pics
please let me know
whoever pinned them did not correctly source them
and I always want to give credit where credit is due

Busy as a Bee

is flying by

I just realized that when my grandson is around
I get nothing done

at the end of this month
I am going to be a vendor
at a vintage market

I have a million things running through my head
hopefully, time will be on my side
and I will get everything done

I made myself an organizational board in my office
to help me complete my tasks
and to stay organized
and so far
it has worked amazingly

I have also been in a cooking funk
so yesterday,
I jotted down a week's worth of meals
along with the recipes and a grocery list
and after Mass I did my shopping for the week
crossing my fingers this will help

I meant to take a picture of what I wore to Mass yesterday
but my brain is in "get things done mode"
and as soon as I got home
I put on my working clothes and got busy
and then about half way through getting stuff done
I realized I forgot to take a picture of my dress
a flowery dress from Goodwill
it was so cute
and only five bucks
you should have seen it
