Easter 2017!

 We held our Easter celebration the Saturday before Easter with appox 30 ppl. We spent Easter doing
the clean up. We had a wonderful time. We had a little photo shoot in the back yard. This was Harlow's first Easter.

 Londyn being 7 1/2 years older makes her a great helper.
 Maybe its not all fun and games. Babies gotta cry sometimes.
 This one is a favorite of mine. Heck they are all my favorites.
 I have a shed full of items I just hold onto for props and parties.

 Love her cheesy grin in the bucket.

 She visited her great grandpa Buzz. Oh how I love this picture.

 We had a coloring station out back for the kids and adults to color eggs. That was fun..
 Here is a little cousin named Saylor. She is the cousin of the girls. So glad they will grow up and have each other. She just turned two.

 Its always fun when someone captures a photo when you least expect it. I love this pic of pampa,
Harlow and I.
 My son Noah and girlfriend Jessica. I sure love them and occasionally it works out and I have them here for a few hours.
 Jessica is an amazing cook, has a love for our family and having get together's and for that I am thankful. I sure love her.
 Had to throw some vintage in somewhere lol. I have a friend who likes to leave treasures on my porch and knows my love for vintage silverware. A nice surprise Saturday am to come home to it. I must tell you I have thousands of pieces. I wish I knew how to display them.
 Sunday morning after the clean up was over I sat with my coffee and reflected on my blessings and how grateful I am for them.

 I hope each and everyone of you had a wonderful Easter!! I sure did. Blessings Pam

Miss Harlow Jaine turns 9 months today!

 Time goes by so fast. I took the day off to spend with the granddaughters. We had a lot of fun today.
She loves her puffs, she gets so excited and it is cute when she moves her wrists when she sees me and wants to be held. She is not much of a napper these past few weeks. She is starting to associate when you ask her where is pampa, where is gammy etc. I love it.
I took Londyn lunch at school. She wanted McDonald's for lunch. She was so giddy and proud to have me there. I felt like I was show and tell. After school she asked if she could go to the book fair and by a book. However it ended up being a fingernail kit. She gave us the sad eyes and of course we folded. I carried her backpack and coat to the car and smiled all the way. I couldnt help but think of how being a gammy is so amazing. I am exhausted and even know not that old it has been a busy day. Now Harlow is home, Londyn is at tumbling and than we have a birthday/going away party for Mikhail. Londyn will return to spend the night. I am guessing we will be painting nails. Have a great day.

Instagram Love!

 I have so many wonderful friends/families I follow on instagram. I received some beautiful gifts
from them and am so grateful. I love the little canvases I received week before last. Our nest and Bloom our perfect for my bedroom. MiaNicoleDesgnCo has a great etsy site. If you get a chance to check her out..

 These beautiful cards came from PNWGirlDesigns, I have a hard time wanting to use them.. Check her out also if you get the chance.

My next project is going to be to work on this hutch. It just seems to be where everything goes when I need a place to put it. It is one of my favorite pieces in my home.. We had a great weekend of spring weather and sunshine. I went in so many directions and I am not sure I finished any of them. Looking forward to many days to follow. Happy Monday. Blessings Pam

I have a barn door!

 Let me start by saying I entered a giveaway back in December through instagram and facebook.
 My husband and I made the agreement we would not buy for each other this year as we get what
we need when we need it etc. I was so happy to have woke up one morning to this amazing win.
Now to pick out the door I wanted, I would have to learn patience through this experience. I am
not patient at all. If I buy a gift I cant hold onto to it, I have to give it right away. This would turn
into a 3 month project, so you can imagine how hard this was for me. We have a friend we call our
fixer upper his name is Frank! Now he is really busy and I get him in between projects or when he
has 5-30 mins. So that is where the patience comes in. First I would have to pick my door, than decide where it was going to go. Next have Frank over to help me build it, measure it and place the order over the phone. I must tell you https://rusticahardware.com/ is amazing and has excellent customer service. They are prompt and ship out quickly. I chose the Ranch style. Our home is built in the 70's and has lots of possibilities when it comes to fixing up. I am loving the dark woods in my home. Our last home was newer and all white. This home I feel like it is a farmhouse style.
I was so excited one day to pull in the driveway and see the package there. Now on the left is the finished project. It would have to be assembled. I could of had it come assembled but I saved $500-$600.00 having it sent unassembled. More patience. Can you believe it sat about three weeks before we would start the project.
 We have a two story house and I decided I needed more food space. I decided to turn the underneath
staircase storage into a pantry.
 This was what I had ick! You know when you move in someplace and its just one of those places no
one sees and you kinda forget about it. It always bugged me. So we finally had the incentive to get
 Painting is not one of my strong suits but I actually once involved got excited for the finished project.
 This is what we came up with. We have since added baskets and more racks.
 Finally the day would come when we started to put it together. Only to find out it was to tall.
Oh my imagine my disappointment. Now Frank would have to brainstorm. I waited a few more
days, wondering if I would have to put it somewhere else.
He decided to shave a few inches off, which really made me sad to have to cut on this beautiful
door. However he did a great job and you could never tell.
 Here it is installed. I am in love with my door!
 My granddaughter peeking around the corner lol.

Where does it stop? Now I want to switch out baseboards and replace all the outlets. This door was
truly such a wonderful gift. I am so blessed by this win! I am enjoying having a pantry and feeling it
up. Its not perfect by any means but it works for me. Thanks for letting me share with you my barn door. Have a great weekend. Blessings Pam

8 months Already!

Little Miss Harlow Jaine turned 8 months yesterday. Time goes by so fast. Already talking about her 1st birthday plans. She is such a happy baby.

 I love this one above. She looks like she is ready for trouble.

 Her big sis Londyn is such a good helper and they sure love each other. Being a gammy has sure changed me. I am so much more relaxed and less stressed than I use to be.
Sunday we had a taste of spring. Windows open, children playing outside, lawnmowers going. Now we have down pouring of rain. Gets me excited though. Hope your enjoying your day. Blessings Pam
We do not remember days we remember moments!
