The Deck and Gazebo and HELP NEEDED!!

Been working alot this summer on my new deck with the gazebo.  You may remember the cute iron bench I got at Hobby Lobby.  It needed a cushion.  So, I had this old red and white quilt - quilters, don't panic, it was full of holes.  But, I thought it would work great for the bench for outside.  My geraniums have come back - guess the cool and rain did it.

I added these curtain panels which I fell in love with when I saw them at TJMaxx.  They are at all four corners of the pergola.

Don't remember where I got the red ceramic round table but the polka dotted and striped dishes all came from Home Goods.

Finally got my little storage shed about finished.  Got the lamps put on when I had the electrical work done running to the building. Also, had tons of outlets put on the inside, an air conditioner and a ceiling fan. It's a delight to look out and see it in the mornings on the deck.


For quite some time, I have not been able to comment on anyone's posts or reply to anyone's comments on my blog.

At the bottom where you say REPLY, I get:

I have tried putting in my Google info but it still doesn't post.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

I am answering all of the comments on my blog thru email.  I'd rather have them on my blog.

Any help would be appreciated.

Kaycee is home and going strong.  My sister is doing very well.  Thanks for all of the love, prayers and support during the last month.  I felt them.

Prayers and Fall in Oklahoma

First off, let me ask for your prayers and love for my great grandbaby, Kaycee.  She has been in the hospital this week with pneumonia.  My sister Jeannie is home and doing well.

Just last week, we got this antique piece of my furniture moved to the living room.  It had been in storage for a long time.  I inherited this from my aunt and uncle and have always loved it.  It is French and that's about all I know about it.  The hand painting on it is gorgeous.

I just kind of realized how drawn I am to painted furniture think?????

My flowers are still going strong.  We have a few cool days, then a rain and then warm weather again.  I guess they like it.

We were expecting some stormy weather last week.  One evening I took this photos and they are so amazing....what our God can do!!

Enjoy!  Will be back in a few days with some shopping treasures from Estate Sales.

Hi From Oklahoma and Exciting News.

Happy Fall to All!!

I cannot believe Summer went by so fast.  I really didn't get enough of my little ones being out of school - even if I did see them about every day!!

Thanks for all of the prayers and love sent to my sister Jeannie.  She is home and is finally getting to feel better.  God is so good!

I have done a little Fall decor but not much.

Last, but not least!!!  I have an exciting announcement!!

My precious granddaughter Tiffany, who grew up with John and I, is engaged to be married!!!

This girl is my rock!!  She is always there for me regardless of the situation and is just such a blessing from the Lord.

Remember, she is raising these three darling little girls of her sisters'.  She is so committed to them and giving them a wonderful life.  She often joked about being an old maid with three girls.  LOL

And then, in walked Adam.  What a gift he has been to her.  

They have set a wedding date of September 15, 2018 which is John's birthday.

We have chosen a venue and she has been trying on wedding dresses.  There is so much to do so you can imagine what I'll be doing for the next year.

I am so thrilled for her and Adam.  They are so truly happy.

Hopefully, I'll post a little sooner than in the past.

Have a great day!


PS:  One of my Christmas projects was featured in the new Christmas issue of Country Sampler!!

Update on My Sister Jeannie

This is a short update on my sweet sister Jeannie.  She is doing so much better.  They have her out of CICU and off of most of the meds.  There is even a chance she will get to go home in the next day or so.  
God is so good!

When they did her heart cath on Tuesday, the Doctor said he could not explain but there was no damage to her heart - NONE AT ALL.  He had no explanation but I needed none.  I knew that all of the prayers going up for her had been heard.  Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.  

She still has a way to go after being bedfast for over a week but she's making a fast recovery.  

The photo at the top is a picture I made for her several years ago.  The background is a sheet of music "I Dream of Jeannie with the light brown hair" and I added on sweet memories - pictures of her as a child and the birth announcement from her crib at the hospital.

My Dad always danced with us girls - holding us up when we were small and as we aged, we danced with our feet on his shoes.  He always sang this song to Jeannie.

Precious memories.

Again, thank you and I still covet your prayers for her recovery.
