Fall Back!

Fall back to the last couple years as we wait for the next fall pictures to come after our third
granddaughter arrives. I tell you I'm learning some real patience at this point... We are almost
or should I say Jordan is almost a week late. I'm sure once the baby arrives it will all be worth
while..




For now I keep my phone close and on at all times.. I look forward to sharing pictures of the glorious day with you when she arrives. Blessings Pam

Heading into Fall!

 This is Miss Harlow Jaine, she is granddaughter # 2! She is such a happy and smart little one. She brings such a smile to my face each day. Her baby sister is due anytime and we couldn't be more excited to meet the little one.
 Added a little fall to the playhouse.. Still need to find the perfect twinkle lights.. Harlow loves her playhouse... I won the Mimi's Lane sign and it couldn't be more perfect! Londyn calls me gammy and Harlow calls me Mimi. I'm curious to see what the newest one will call me.
 I love making gifts and Dyi projects. These globes were something I made a few years ago. I
wish I had more time to spend making things.
My collection continues to grow with Rae Dunn. I love each morning being able to grab
a mug of choice that fits the day.. 


Its about time to get the cocoa bar going again... I love making cocoa with the grand kids and
a little air popped popcorn goes so well. They also enjoy watching it pop...
I bought this wreath over the summer. It just had the white roses on it. I added some fall pumpkins
and twigs. Londyn helped hot glue and put it together... This weekend I will go to a couple fall/Harvest shows and hope to come home with some pumpkins.. Hope you have a great weekend..

Playhouse DYI

This is a before shot of the playhouse I bought from a friend.. I redid it for the grand kids.. However I think there was a little part or big part that did it for me lol..

 I hate painting.. I wish I could find a love for it.. Once I got the first coat of prime on it I was on my way to wanting to get it done...
 Come inside and see the transformation. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out and am still wanting to add more embellishments like a house number, light above the door, some twinkle lights etc..



 Found the cute greenery at Hobby Lobby and was able to incorporate some of my Rae Dunn collection to it as well.





 Little Miss Harlow was pretty impressed. This will be perfect also for the newest addition joining our family in October... I keep reminding her its Harlow's house and not MiMi's house lol. I want to add a couple cute crates with cookware and maybe an apron also... I cant take the credit as with instagram and pinterest there was so many cute ideas including the one pictured below... I love following her feed...
I have taken a long break from blogging and am hoping to get myself reconnected with it as I miss it so much. Have a lovely day.. Blessings Pam

Blessed by this win in December!!!

 I entered a giveaway for a barn door in December via Instagram, I was so excited to have won... Thanks so much https://artisanhardware.com/ their customer service and turn around is amazing.
 Thankfully our son in law is real handy.. I'm the annoying nagging mother in law that says can you
do this and that for me.. I have a list waiting.. Right now he is working on some floating shelves for me to display all of my Rae Dunn (well not all of it) but seasonal would be great.


 I decided to add a chalk wall for the grand kids to enjoy.. It took me awhile to let them dirty it
as I kinda liked the black wall but after all that was the plan all along. So Miss Harlow Jaine really
enjoyed it and now colors every time she is over.





 We added the little gate to the stair case to keep the three dogs contained. It works quite well.
Another project is to rip carpet out and see whats under there.. Having a home built in the 70's always means upgrades.. Still remodeling kitchen a slow process, started the upstairs bathroom as well. It all
requires patience and money..


I sure miss blogging and will try and get better. Lots to share coming up.. Hope your having a great
Monday. Blessings Pam

The Nutcracker 2017!

 This was our granddaughters 3rd year performing in the Nutcracker. She is 8yrs old and let
me tell you how amazed and proud I am of her dedication and love for performing in the public.
I have never been one to do any of this... She tried out in Sept and got the part she wanted. She
was a bon bon. She had to start practice each Saturday only being able to miss one or she would
be dropped.... She missed a few sleep overs and parties all with a smile and excitement for the next
practice.

 She had to be in full makeup for the rehearsals that started early in the week... And baby it was
cold outside.....


 She performed 4 times. She was bummed when it was over but let me tell you she crashed
when it was....
First year as a mouse, second as a toy soldier and third as a bon bon.. Her smile melts my heart.
Definitely was a great start to December.. Merry Christmas! Blessings Pam

Why oh Why?

 Why oh why would we start a kitchen remodel early November right before the holidays?
I am sharing an after picture before the before only to keep you here lol. We will be in our
home 3yrs come January. It was built in the 70's and while there is several upgrades the
kitchen isn't one of them. It has driven me nuts but we just don't have thousands to spend so
we decided to do ourselves. I have so many ideas and it will probably take a year or so to
finish..
 It has been alot of work and the dust and mess is driving me crazy. I like to have everything
in its place. I am working on patience. The dark old varnish wood with old knobs was just dark
and gloomy.
 Many trips to Home Depot and Lowe's for more and more sandpaper I am liking the way
it has turned out.





 We will finish up the cabinets after Christmas... We are going to add a back splash to the wall, a new
pendant light above the sink, hopefully a new farmhouse sink, and adding some new trim. Im also hoping to add some underneath lighting under the cupboards.We removed some shudders around the window above the sink and need to plaster that as well. When all is done I will paint the kitchen. Last year around this time we removed a wall to open the kitchen up a little. We also removed the ugly florescent lighting. I was super excited to have won a barn door and will be getting that ordered this week. It will go on the dining room wall. I just have to picture the end project. In the end knowing we did it ourselves will be so rewarding.
The kitchen has been closed but as of late I have some order finally and am going to sit back and
admire what is done and imagine what isn't done and what it will look like....Hope your enjoying your month of December..
