Time for 10 photos on the 10th (although late as usual…haha). Remember how I said my garden was mostly lost during our month long adventure? Well, my zinnias are at least still going strong! I’m loving all the pretty colors they are making. I used to not care for these flowers as much, but I have so much more appreciation for them now that I have seen how strong and hearty they are. And of course, they are pretty too.
This past month was full, as always it seems to be these days. But I had one photo session that I had promised last year. It was for a lovely couple who’s to be wed in October. I will have to share some of those pics soon because they are just so pretty! And I just love “love” photos. You know? It’s fun to capture peoples “love” for them to keep forever.
We have been working on some slow coming projects. I am working on finishing up a crocheted blanket. All that is left is making a bunch of big pom poms to put on the edges and then weave in all the ends. I can’t wait to have it finished. It’s the softest blanket ever! My hubby finished up our new kitchen table. Above is a sneak peak. I have always wanted something with lighter wood, so he made a new top to go on our old one and I helped by painting the table legs white and finishing the top. It’s so good to have a kitchen table back in place. The folding tables were okay, but nothing like a good solid table. Isn’t is lovely?
We have also been busy ranking our top places we want to go next transfer season (if you are a new reader, my hubby is in the Coast Guard). We have been looking into all kinds of places. Even if we never make it to some spots, I feel a lot more educated about America to say the least.
I helped put together this display at church for going back to school time. For that back banner, I taped two pieces of kraft paper together, glued on wide ruled paper, then taped on cardstock letters and painted over them. Super easy and makes a big impact! We highlighted the edges of the books and covered them with white papers so the colored edges stand out. Then we hung them with fishing wire to give the illusion that the books are floating in the air.
We had another mini adventure to Grand Isle, LA too. Our friends offered for us to come on a mini trip with them, so we did! It was a lot of fun, even if it rained a ton. My girls had so much fun playing with their friends and catching frogs and crabs.
And of course, I get in a thrifting trip every now and then! I was so excited to find this pretty vintage sheet (that I split with my friend) and this pretty gold frame. I’m slowly working on gathering what I want to create an art wall in our living room and I think this will fit in nicely. So there are some going ons with us recently. Miss J started school this week so we are having fun getting into a new routine. So far so good!
