Random pics, Hot dog Shoppe, working in the garden.

I am a total sucker for this vintage jewelry!  I pick most of it up for .50-$1.  I have a basket full of it now.  I love to wear these bracelets with my floral 1950's style dresses.
 Working in the garden....which was a total waste of time because it completely and totally drowned this year.  It was a total loss!  I think this is the first year my garden has ever been a total and complete loss.
 Yep...all of these tomatoes drowned too!

 You can see how muddy it is.  I could barely even walk around.  (Yes, I do wear my dresses and skirts all the time.  LOL)
 We absolutely LOVE the Hot Dog Shoppe! I think I could eat there at least once a week. It is a good thing I don't live that close to it or I would.

 A random pic just because she is so cute!

Drive In

We went to the Drive In to see Inside Out and another movie.  We have a Drive In about an hour from me that is $20 for a car load to see two movies.  That is a great deal for a family my size!

The Park andThe Lake for Memorial Day

For Memorial Day I took the kids to the local park to play for a few minutes.

 Then we picked up a chicken bucket from the local grocery store and went to the lake to play for a couple of hours.

Some Random Pictures from Summer!

 I saw this wall hanging at a garage sale and had to have it.  I got it for only $2 so that made it even more awesome!  It is on top of my china hut now.
 I got some bag flowers to hang on my front porch to go with my three hummingbird feeders.  My feeders were crazy busy this summer.  I had as many as 7 hummingbirds at my feeder at one time. They would even come buzz our heads.

 I picked up this doll stroller for a $1 at a garage sale for my wee one.  She loved it!
 My wee one is so adorable! This is a teddy bear my mom made her out of my dad's old shirts.  He is greatly missed.
 Just because I love this dress I will post a pic of me in it!

It's been a while!

I know it has been a while since I last updated...over a year.  Where has the time gone??
Anyways, the kids and I have been busy traveling and I have been doing a lot of canning and I have published another book and I am working on getting another book published soon.
I have a million pictures from my adventures of this passed summer and I will try to update my blog when I can.  I would also like to start posting some of my thrift store finds and some of my tablescapes that I create.  I have really been enjoying putting those together.

I'll start with some pictures of The Boy's birthday.  He turned 13 this year!
 We went to the Extreme Air Trampoline Park.
 Then to lunch and Imagination Station to play.
 Then we went to Yankee Lake Truck night.

 I got a little muddy.  I had a hard time getting my short self up in Matt's lifted truck and as you can see I got some mud on me
 We met Matt and he gave us a ride in his truck as a special treat for The Boy for his birthday! It was a lot of fun!!
