Date Night.... home with Tahoe Joes and netlfix. Right up our alley!

P.S. We've been watching Band of Brothers, I highly recommend it. Really something that's entertaining and pretty historically accurate.

Morro Bay

We are so thankful to have this getaway. It was just what we needed after such a hot humid week and before things really get busy for Ben. We are so blessed.

Petite scrap napkins

One night we were at my sister-in-laws for dinner and Ben discovered her napkins. She had made them from scraps and they were smaller than usual. He proclaimed that these were the most perfect napkins. I've been wanting to make some myself and finally got around it it. What a fun and functional way to use some scraps!

Revamping (part 2)

I took advantage of my long weekend to do a few more fun projects, and not to mention avoiding being outside in this heat.

I got 3 frames for 25 cents each, did sort or a transparent paint job to give them more of a glazed with color look for visual interest, and then put some pressed herbs in them since they are in my kitchen. Viola homemade art.

My shelves from dad got some rearranging with new felt flower additions. Have I mentioned I have an obsession with felt? Love it!

This corner in my bathroom looked nice with the curtains but needed a little extra.

These were plain fake flowers but not they are replaced by the felt fantastic ones!

A pair of thrifted gold owls. I also have an obsession with owls currently, and the color yellow, oh an Pioneer woman iced coffee recipe....

My first round of pickles is done! All the ingredients are grown by us except the chilies. It definitely makes for more work having to grow and pick everything but it's worth it.

My reward for my hard work....iced coffee thanks to Pioneer Woman's recipe. YUM.
