Got my giveaway in the mail...

today from I put the block saying in my mail slot cabinet over my sofa and the tea items I will enjoy!! thanks so much girls.
Today I had a dermatologist app. in Bartlesville and I left a little early and hit the TS. I found these cute cutting boards for $1.25 for both! Great deal. I will paint up the two smaller ones for sure. I googled other TS in the area and went by but it being a Mon. they were closed. I rescheduled my 6mth check up for a Fri. so the TS would be open! A lot of them are closed on Mon, and open at the end of the week.

I finally made some fly screens from Walmart. They are ok, I really like the old strainer look. I think I'll look for some and try my hand at some small ones. I did also make some candle huggers for a couple candles yesterday.

Here's a picture of my stove board I'm loving with the pantry cakes I made last weekend!

And I have made some more sunflowers to set around. For now they are in a wire basket on my Hoosier cabinet. I'll find a place for them!! Well it's almost 8.00pm. The daughter is at youth night at church. We had Easter church service yesterday in our new north campus. Another Baptist congregation GAVE us their land and church building about 3 yrs. ago. Their congregation had dwindled down and they moved over to our church building. Now we have a south and north building to do different activities in. The second service (Contemporary) has gotten so large we will be now using the new building for that time. And lucky for me it's about three blocks from my house! Have a great week everyone!

Hi Dawn! I just love those sunflowers you're making! I love them in the wire basket too.
Yes, I have tried getting on Behind Thyme, and I got the same message.
I don't know what's up with that.
Hope everything is okay with her.

Love your sunflowers and how fun to schedule doctor's appts around ts hours!

Granny said...

Love the pictures, especially the sunflowers. I love that you scheduled your appointment on a day the thrift stores will be open.

Denise said...

Funny how we schedule things around the TS and GW. I am taking my nephew and his girlfriend to the airport this afternoon and have already planned on a side trip to a GW that I only hit when going to the airport!!

I am IN LOVE with those sunflowers! They are fantastic! I have quite a few sunflowers throughout my kitchen/dining room.

Have a great day, Denise

Everything looks wonderful. I love your sunflowers, I made some but I think I primmed them too much, they came out way too dark. Have a great week.
