THE ART OF DECOUPAGE' AND A GRADUATION

I took a really worthless old solid wood dresser and gave it a quick make over.  I wanted to bring those claret/pinks/reds into a design because I simply LOVE those tones on that green turquoise color.  I didn't want to cover the entire drawer front.  I kinda went in a wave shape from the top corner down to the bottom side corner….still needs to be waxed, which will make all the blue/green painted color really stand out, as well as the distressed areas…but it still looks good enough to share.  Hope you enjoy!

Then we had our eldest son's girlfriends college graduation this past weekend, I almost didn't make it as I had something very upsetting occur the day before and spent most of the day crying and didn't sleep very well, so I was drained and exhausted (apparent in photo).  However, I really wanted to be there for her. Plus her entire family flew in from Georgia…we had a lovely visit and am very proud of our Caroline!  Well done you!!

Ho Downs, A Birthday, The Beach and Sauerkraut

Oh man, I  always have such good intentions. I take pictures at all kinds of events around here.  New chickens, new planter box in the garden.  A new preserving class, a Ho Down….and then life just keeps going and more exciting things keep happening and then it's a month or two later and I'm playing catch up with you all.

So here we go.

A couple quick picks of the new baby girls…who are a month and  a half older than these photos already..you should see them now, so utterly colorful and feathery…I'll get you caught up with them next week and introduce each beauty…oh and there's a new black duck..Ruby.













Then we move on the the Ho Down.
Dad's home shared a BBQ and some wholesome family music with the family from Las Vegas who tours, Mama's Wranglers and clogging..yes, clogging.  In the meantime here they are.







Then we are sharing some quick photos from our oldest sons little birthday celebration, and yes, we are standing on the chairs yet again!







Now onto a lovely walk with the dogs on the beach last week…need I say more.





This is the wall of memories at the end of the trail…
I always hi-five before turning around

Yes, I DID wear this hat to the Ho Down!





And last but not least, the sauerkraut that I learned to make myself at the last preserve class…and some home grown chicken and duck eggs….loving this country living!!


Hope life is treating you kindly….and to all my besties..mucho hugs and love!!  Enjoy! xoxjuner

EASTER SUNDAY GAME AND ALL

So we had a ball game on Sunday and we got the kids to come in from San Fran and our youngest tagged along with us, as well as Ray's best girlfriend, Mark..ha ha!  I say this because these guys are like two old women…seriously!  They bear hug, they have nicknames for each other, they talk on the phone about everything, they're two peas in a pod.  With the exception of Sports…Mark could care less.  But we talked him in to coming along with us and we all had a ball, no pun intended.  Our team won and it was a perfect sunny afternoon…no sweaters needed.  I put together some little packages for everyone with Easter basket grass and a painted egg with their names and chocolate bars, chocolate eggs and egg sugar sprinkled cookies, made perfect chicken salad on croissants and bags of kettle chips…it was a really good day!
