Where has the summer gone?

I can't hardly believe it is already August.  I don't know where the summer went.  The girls start back to school in about two weeks and I will really miss them.  Laynee will be in the third grade and the twins will be in Kindergarten  How time flies.  But, they are so excited to go back to school.  They love it.  It is just so sad that we have to worry about especially little ones during this traumatic time of our lives.

The girls' school underwent a complete renovation this summer.  One of the things they told us about was that each room was getting a new "closet".  In my mind I can only think that maybe it is a safe room.

My flowers are all late bloomers this year.  I assume it is due to the intense rains and flooding we had all spring.  And now it is heat factors up to 110 degrees.  So I imagine they will fade pretty fast.

If you remember my pink master bathroom, I am getting ready to start redoing it - slowly but surely.  I have found some absolutely gorgeous wallpaper for one wall.  If you remember, I did the small window in lace and doilies and am loving it.

It will be in all shades of cream, tan and off white.  I am working on it a little at a time.

Passed my four month mark on my shoulder surgery.  It is doing great.  See the surgeon on Thursday for check up.

Stay cool and enjoy the summer.

Hello from Oklahoma!

I'm am starting on my fourth month since my shoulder surgery and it has been a long four months.  Everything is going great except for a small set back in the last two weeks.  They said I was "overambitious" with my home therapy.  Consequently, I am on no therapy right now until I have an MRI the 18th.  But, I'm sure it will all be alright.  I am limited as to what I can do with my right arm.  The computer is one thing that really sets off pain in the shoulder.  

Anyway, hopefully I will be back into the blogging world on a more regular basis.

Hoping you all had a happy 4th of July.  I went with Tiffany, Adam and the kids out to Adam's brother's home in the country.  They grilled and the kids all had fun with the fireworks.

Oklahoma weather has been just awful for the past few months.  We had record amounts of rain with lots of flooding - none affecting my or Tiff's home.  But so much damage and destruction was caused.  We went from chilly and wet to record degree heat.  All of the flowers and foliage are so confused!

Painted this shutter a few years ago and still enjoy it.

I always especially enjoy my Coca Cola sign at this time of the year.

Don't know if you remember or not, but I have this obsession with transferware.  I have brown, red and blue.  This is the shelf in my dining room with some of the brown.

Since I was able to drive about a month ago, I have been going to estate sales.  Last week, I went to one and they had this gorgeous set of 179 pieces of brown transferware!!!  I put a bid in on it because I would not have paid what they were asking.  The pattern was Masons Vista.

Imagine my surprise when they called and said I had won the bid.  OMG  I was so thrilled!  Then, I had the sobering thought that I had to call Tiffany and ask her to go with me to get it because I couldn't lift any of it.  She just shakes her head when I do something like that.  So, it was amazing.  About a dozen different pitchers, bowls, platters and place settings for 12.

So, even tho I can't do alot with my arm, I still can shop.  Tiff has kinda grounded me. (just kidding).

So good to have heard from so many of you checking on me.  I'm on the mend (I think)!

Happy March

So hard to believe it is mid March already.  March - the month of green.

Couldn't resist putting this pic of Bella on here.  She was always such a good sport.  Miss her so much.

Sharing some of my Spring and March projects with you...

and can't forget collectibles...

It's hard to believe that two years ago tomorrow, I went sky diving on my birthday.  That was definitely an experience!!

I have been unable to blog the last few months because of my shoulder injury.  I was scheduled to have surgery in February but came down with the flu.  So, now I am scheduled for March 26th.  I have a torn roto -cuff plus some torn tendons that have to be grafted back together.  I can not comfortably be on the computer at this point.  So, please say a little prayer for me and my doctor on the 26th.

Hopefully, after I recoup from this, I'll be blogging more frequently.

Have a great Spring.  I think it is almost here.

Happy February everyone!

Where does the time go?  I cannot believe it is already February.  We kinda lost a month or so.  Tiffany came in one day to her house (my old house) and the carpet was wet.  I immediately called the insurance company and a plumber.  It seems there was a leak in the shower pan in the master bedroom and it had leaked all day soaking down the carpet in the entire house.

Plumber said we needed to do something immediately before mold set in.  This was especially important because of Kaycee's lung problems.


We called in a restoration company and they had to completely tear out the whole bathroom, all the baseboards and the carpet thru out the house.

It was a mess but they worked amazingly fast and restored everything.  So, now Tiff and Adam have all brand new carpet and a new bathroom. What a mess it was tho.

Anyway, on to more pleasant things.  

Reds I like in February....


Red gumball machine filled with buttons

Red Heart chickens

Basically, anything red

Here's wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!

Wedding Photos Finally!!

We finally got the wedding pictures!  Due to the photographer's child being critically ill and in the hospital quite a while, we had to wait, but boy, oh boy, it was worth the wait.

This is only a small portion of the photos so hang on, here we go.

Here colors were black, white and silver and we used white hydrangeas.

The photographer started out taking pics of the little girls in Tiff's dress.

I thought that was a precious idea.

Adam got her the most beautiful gift.  I had never seen this before.

It's a sterling silver tube engraved with their names and wedding date.  It opens up and holds their wedding certificate.

Her wedding bouquet.

The underneath side of her bouquet had a silver charm with John's picture on it.

Their beautiful rings.

Bellissima Ranch is where the wedding was held.

It was two gorgeous barns with a house attached to the one for the reception.  The house slept 15 so the girls all stayed out there.  We had the venue for 3 days.

This is the wedding site.

We used bunches of white babies breath and white tulle for the chair decor.

This is the reception barn.

This was in memory of the grandparents who had passed away.  The photo of Tiff in her wedding dress was taken in Pryor at John's grave.  She had it made for me as a surprise.

Adam's two youngest boys.  The youngest one Nash was the ring bearer.  Peyton was the Junior Groomsman.

Brandon (Tiff's brother) walking me in.

Laynee as Junior Bridesmaid.

Laycee and Kaycee were Flower Girls.

And here comes the bride with her brother.

The bridal party.

Tiff, Adam, me and my sisters.

First Dance

Their wedding cakes.  Needless to say, Adam is a big Dallas Cowboy fan so his cake was a baseball cake.

So, there it is.  It was a beautiful venue, gorgeous day and we couldn't have ask for anything more - if only John would have been there.  But I know he was watching from above and smiling.
