Painting Season

I live in a brick house.  So painting isn't usually a chore I have outside.  But all the trim was needing it as well as the garage doors.  I have almost completed the front of the house.  I just have my rose trellis wrought iron supports left.

Now I have turned my attention inside.  I hope to get the bathroom renovations finished up by making a curtain, giving the bathroom cabinet a fresh coat of polyurethane, freshening the wall paint, painting the ceilings, and replacing the mirror in the boys' bathroom with a bigger one.  More on that later.

Here are my front flower beds:

And here is our new shed.  My hubby and boys built it and painted it.  My hubby has added shelves.

And he bought me this great tool holder:

Here's my garden this year:

Booties for Bob

My husband has a booth at a local antique mall.  The booth fee is quite steep for someone just starting out, so I decided to make him some booties to sell.  If they sell, I thought it could help him out.  So I hope it works.

Here they are---

One for a girl:

 I threaded red ribbon in through the eyelet row, but I didn't get a pic of that.

And one for a boy:

I like the cute little button.

Here's hoping!!!

He already took the white ones to the booth.  The blue are ready to go.  See?

The white booties are from the Bootie Collection, White Shells, Pattern #3.
The blue booties are from the Booties by the Dozen collection, Little Loafers, Pattern #10.

Mother's Day Card

My 15 year old helps in children's church some Sundays.  He happened to be helping on Mother's Day.

See what he made me?

Isn't that AWESOME?  :)

He loves kids and I think he is awesome for helping with them.  He goes to karate early a lot of nights to help teach the younger kids too.  What a guy!
