Fun Treasures!


 Well today is 109 outside so great day to update my blog... Oh how I miss you..! Summer has been flying by and we leave in 11 days for Hawaii. I am so ready for a vacation.. I have been so blessed with some great wins on instagram as of late, a few great finds at some sales, and if you know me I love to buy from small businesses. I love this welcome window pictured above that came from the rafters of my dads shop. I bought the decals at Hobby Lobby..
 I found this column last week along with the bird perched on top.. I was paid to water a customers yard and while heading to water I hit this sale.... Spent every penny...
 I have went crazy in my yard this year.. This weekend we will be planting 7 more roses in the back.. I cant wait to see what all comes back next year.
 I love my little rack I bought from Magnolia several months ago. Spending time in my yard with my three dogs and all my flowers and vegetables has been alot of fun this summer. Tonight I cooked using my tomato's and peppers.
 I was so excited when I won a facebook win from https://www.facebook.com/SweetSalvageDesigns/ out of Springfield Oregon. We made a trip down there and pictured below is what I came home with. I won the pillow and a gift certificate plus fall tickets to their Harvest Fair...
 I am in love with this basket and the chalkboard.
 I love this coffee sign I won from https://www.etsy.com/shop/nelshandmadesigns! She has some awesome things if you get a chance, please check her out.
 I haven't spent much time indoors lately to work on home projects. Hoping to start a kitchen redo in the early fall.
 I have become quite the collector of Rae Dunn! I sure was a hot mess heading out Saturday to some early sales..
 I sure love the instagram world and won a pet giveaway. The picture above was one of the items I received. It came from https://www.etsy.com/shop/birchandbarrowco So check her out as well.
Getting ready to go hang out my other score the great candle holder outside here in a few minutes. The tee pee was a great find from a local friend that I follow on facebook. I have wanted one for sometime. It will be used for some photos of the grand kids. I love supporting small businesses. Hope your staying cool and enjoying your summer. Blessings. Pam

Moving onto 3rd Grade.

 June 15th 2017 I was able to volunteer at Londyn's school for a fitness Olympic day! I really enjoyed the day.. Her smile melts my heart and I am so proud to be a part of her everyday....

 I love the way she encourages her team mates...




 Mrs Mills was hard to say goodbye too.. Londyn really got attached to her. As I volunteered that day I realized she runs laps around me..





Londyn has decided she wants a parakeet. She wanted a turtle but I think a bird would be much easier and less expensive. We shall see. She is doing chores around our home when she visits and saving her a bird. Happy Summer. Blessings Pam

Parties and Plants!

 Our son Noah turned 28 on May 25th. We had a party for him Memorial Day weekend. To our surprise it didn't rain this year. Which was great as we had over 40 people at our home.
 I really enjoy his girlfriend Jessica. Looking forward to a vacation to Hawaii with her and Noah in August.
 Her family came from Portland. We met for the first time.
 As you can see we danced and entertained until pretty late into the evening.
 Londyn even had her Lemonade stand up and running.
 I have really gone crazy this year in the yard. Never really had much of  a green thumb before but I must say I am really enjoying the peace it brings me.

 I love my little glass house..

 Have really enjoyed the succulents this year as well. We laid new bark and some new grass also.


 These roses are over 6ft tall and I love the multi colors.
 First year of growing vegetables and fruits. We have strawberries,several tomato plants and pepper plants. Waiting to arrival of the first pick. They seem to be doing quite well.

 I have several hanging baskets. This is the first year I have fertilized and gave plant food. Makes such a difference.






 My motto go big or go home lol. When I get into something I really get into it..

 This past Sunday was a cloudy day and a great day to rest and reflect. Love being able to go into my yard and cut fresh flowers.
 We even have a cherry tree and Londyn enjoyed picking the first red cherries.
Miss Harlow Jaine is 11 months today. You will always find her with a smile like this one pictured above. She is one happy baby. No teeth yet but is crawling all over and walking now. Cant imagine life without these two granddaughters of mine. Have a great June.. Blessings Pam
We do not remember days we remember moments!
