I love spring! Everything is alive and green, and it's warm enough to get back to work!

We (I mean the hubs) tore down the old nasty pool!

We got a grill

And deck furniture (I built the table!)

New hot water heater

With the help of mom♥law the office got a fresh coat of paint
And clean carpet too!

We found out we have an azalea bush

Our Bradford Pears went from this...

To this!

I told her not to blow them up so big!

Blowing out the candles, Maggie is getting ready to help!

Candy Jars

So I've been trying really hard to find ways to reuse jars and containers. and it turns out that peanut butter jars make the perfect candy jars!

Just add some pretty paper...

Make sure to label so you know what's inside!

And add your favorite candy, or your sweetie's favorite candy in this case!

I put it where the candy bowl used to be so hubs would know where to find it.
Men are creatures of habit after all!

I also made this one for my brother.

My Favorite Place

This is my favorite place in our house. This is our kitchen table, and the sun rises right through those windows! I love to sit here and eat breakfast, read, and work on crafts! I'm thinking I'm going to spend a lot of time here today! Who knows, maybe tomorrow I'll have a new favorite place!
