I won Barb's Heartstrokes giveaway. Barb gave away this handpainted Joy Reindeer. I love him and he has made a home with our Christmas decorations. He will move to my craft room after Christmas and will hang year round to bring Joy all year long.   Barb's work can be found on Etsy   The painting is done on fiberglass screen and she does a beautiful job.  Thanks so much Barb!

Halloween Decorations at my house

We made this old bench from an old window.

I made the bats, and put wire in the wings
so they would look more realistic.

I made the pumpkin with dots from
an old piece of plywood.. just rounded the top
and bottom corners and painted a stem, then
glued on a raffia bow.

The pumpkin patch.. made these several years ago.

Back door scarecrow

I made this scarecrow many years ago. This
is one of two things I made in that class and decided
very early that I did not want to pursue as a craft.
Birdhouses my husband made for the show.

Corn in cast iron skillet that Sandy @ The Olde
Country Cupboard made... we miss you Sandy.
McIntosh show will not be the same without you.

View from my back yard

View from my back yard today. The temp is actually
in the 70's this morning in south GA. The cotton is waiting to be
harvested...the plant is sprayed with a defoliate so the
leaves will die. We live in the country with cotton on three
sides of our house. Normally the cotton is sprayed by a
crop duster plane, but last year the farmers sprayed  it..
probably is getting so expensive to use the plane. I am really
glad..when the plane sprays it the spray drifts if the wind is
blowing, even just a little wind will carry it.

This guy is barely clearing the trees and power lines,
not to mention that he flying directly over the house.

Pumpkins in June...these seeds germinated from the
pumpkins I bought at Walmart last Fall.
After a few months we threw them in the compost
pile.  If you will scroll down to the 4th and 5th
picture after the pic with the dog, you will
see the vine in the center and a picture when they
were very small.
Have a great week!
Time to get busy for craft shows..only a
few months away...for us (including me) that don't
have nearly enough inventory to have a show.

Yesterday I decided to pull out the glass paint from
way back in the cabinet, wipe the dust off and
paint glasses. My thing is daisies this summer..can't
get enough of
I decided to paint daisies on these two glasses.
It has probably been 3 years since I painted on
glass. Some of the paint was dry but lucky for me
the yellow, white and brown was still good.
Wipe the glasses with vinegar to remove oils and
whatever may be on not have lotion on
your hands..I hold the glass by the top and sometimes
put my hand in it to hold in place.
It took about 20 minutes to paint these two glasses.

Into a COLD oven for 30 minutes..set temp @ 325..
at the end of time turn off oven, I open the door because
I don't want to wait for the oven to get cold with the door closed 
before I can get them out.  I usually let them age for a
couple days before I clean up whatever spots are on
them...with vinegar.

A quick and easy project.  If you have never painted on
glass, give it a is very forgiving..just keep
the vinegar and cotton swab close by.
I used Delta Perm Enamel and Apple Barrel Indoor-
Outdoor gloss acrylic enamel. I prefer the gloss
paint over the satin finish. Do Not use water base
acrylic paint. Soap and water or brush cleaner can
be used to clean brushes but clean them immediately
after you finish painting.
I always wash my painted glassware by hand.
Total cost $2.00 @ at Dollar Tree.
I think I will go back and get a few more glasses.
That was fun!!

Pics of our garden

We had a thunderstorm come thru our area late yesterday
afternoon. Tree fell on the power line and was without power
almost 2 hours
 These pics were taken after the rain..
seems like everything doubled in size.
We are eating a lot of broccoli...seems like it is all ready
to pick at the same time.
The cabbage has started forming in the center...we could
not find the plants until late in the season, so if the
temperature rises into the 90's, it will not make it..they
prefer cooler weather. They were planted the first week in April.
There are 21 tomato plants and most have tomatoes about
1 inch in diameter. We planted these by the phase of the moon...
April 12 and 13...will let you know how that goes...the yeild is
suppose to be greater.

In case you would like to compare your growing seasons
with our  pictures...we are located in SW GA.

Broccoli..we planted 8 plants.
In the center of pic below is a vine that we did not plant,
started growing from seeds thrown in the compost bed.
Not sure what it is yet but it is growing like crazy..see
pic below.

Happy Mother's Day

Mothers are a promise from God that
you will have a friend forever.
My mom when she was 16 years old.
We miss you but take comfort in our memories
and that we will see you one day.

On my way to the post office

Pictures of our garden.

This morning glory is at the post thrives
on's a cloudy day but look how the light
is shining through the's like there is a clear
bulb in it.....absoultely beautiful.

Honeysuckle growing along the old dirt road that
is by my house. The smell in intoxicating.


This cactus grows at the edge of our property
and down the old dirt road.
This picture is in the fall..I'm told the maroon
bulbs on the top are edible...haven't worked up
enough courage to try.

You should see the dog in the strawberries finding the
perfect one to eat...and she knows to choose the
red ones...her limit is 4.

I call it a bottle brush plant...beautiful

Garden pictures...still have a few things to plant.
cabbage and broccoli
kudzu bugs have invaded south Georgia...but this
is not's my wisteria.
I will be mixing up a special cocktail for them
today when the dew dries. They feed by sucking
the nutrients from the plant...glad we noticed them
before the plant was destroyed.
