Busy Week Ahead

This is where I got the name for my blog

I wanted to do something unusual and unexpected
in my very stuffy formal kitchen
So I had this mural painted
a few years back....
So many people think this a real banner
~it looks so real~
The tie backs at each end are the same ones that hold
the curtains up in the kitchen and they are
tie backs in the living room
so it is 3 dimentional

Out the kitchen  window the
have opened and are so amazingly bright

More things are popping out around here in the
gloomy Northwest

check out the rainbow that goes straight up
right by the 4 flying saucers..

and this is a
~nice day~

Ok your not looking at my weeds are you?

But I'm in a bright mood because I got three days 
in a row of my little
~Matthew Man~

Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday
he stayed down here with Oma

It was the first time that Opa has not been here
while he was here
so we had alone time for 3 whole days and it
was so much fun getting to know him better
you see he is a
~guys, guy~
but Oma got to him and now we are
~Best Buds~

I am headed to the train station to pick up my
but really she is more like the sister I never had
This is *sister* Becky
Little Matthew Man
a year or so ago
That's the thing about Aunts...

as much as you do!

My sister and I are going to
have a couple of weeks of doing projects
around here so watch out
I might have some interesting posts...

  9. I hope you have a great time with your sister. Your home is so gorgeous & the views are beautiful. I just read your post about wanting to change something in your home, & I totally get that. But I have to tell ya', I would be so happy to have your pantry. Don't get me wrong, I have a nice pantry, but I'd love to have a walk-in style. I guess maybe we are just never satisfied.
