Goodness I've been gone for awhile haven't I? I received this from a friend for my birthday. She took her son to Wyoming for college and did a little shopping. She said the store was filled with this kind of stuff. Laughingly, I said "Yes! It's a prim store!". She was amazed because we don't have prim stores anywhere in this danged state! Do you girls realize how fortunate you are?!
I got this 4' x 6' flag at a garage sale for 50 cents!! I snatched it up in a hurry. The first thing Rich says is "You're not gonna tea dye that, are you?". Haha! Why yes I am! I showed him the stains on it and he was okay with it. I think it will look great draped over my old school desk or a chair. Good deals... batting for 50 cents, beautiful white and blue bowl for $1.
Speaking of tea dying... got these cute little towels at Dollar Tree that took a dunk.
I added cinnamon to the pot and I'm not sure I like it on the towels. It looks like they are moldy. Ha! The white towels look great but for some reason the red, white, and blues one didn't turn out so great. I'm guessing it's the fabric?
I gained over 40 new followers when I had my giveaway. The past few weeks I've been going through and adding them to my blogroll, following them. Doing that has put me far behind on my blog reading and posting. But I'm not complaining! It's been lots of fun making new prim friends, I am really enjoying it! Besides that, this is what's been keeping me busy too...
I've been pulling rocks out of this bed by hand and taking bucket fulls to a friend's home down the street. We are pulling up the smaller bushes in front of the boxwood and transplanting them to the back yard. I don't know if you can tell in this picture, but I had quite aways to go still. I am now down to about a 2 foot square left!!
This fall the house will get painted and hopefully next year will be a new roof. Then the following year or two we are going to pull out all the boxwood, tear out the concrete steps and build a whole new front area. There is always something that I want to do. Hehe! It's lots of work but the rewards in the end are worth it. I will say though... this seems to help cool things down a bit after working up quite a sweat.
Thanks for visiting me and checking on me. I have the most wonderful prim friends there is! You all have a delightful weekend~
