Burlap Pillow Wrap

On Monday, I told you about my fun week last week…well, today I have one of the sweet purchases that I made!

 I found this at  “All that stuff in the Barn” in Midway, Utah.

Will Cook For Shoes-Apron

I had a crazy fun week last week!

I went with my best friend, Kathy, (from Junior high school) to lunch, shopping and antique junking!  We had such a fun day and we never tire of things to talk about!  She is just like a sister to me!  We also went to a fun green house in Springville, Utah.  It is still too early to plant most flowers here, but it was fun to get some ideas.  I did get a beautiful succulent planter! 

Then, I went on an overnighter with some friends to Heber, Utah.  We went to a movie, we ate out for every meal and we went shopping.  We stayed up late talking and playing a card game…a perfect girls outing!  It is always so fun to get together with good friends!

Then on Friday, my husband and I went to our property for the afternoon and then back to our cabin for the night.  On the way up we stopped in Park City, Utah, for a short shopping trip.  I was a total bum last week and so now I need to get back to a routine.  I don’t really know why…other than that is what is
expected of me!  :)will cook for shoes


Kettle corn

Sweet and Salty Kettle Corn

Last month when my husband and I were in Arizona at the baseball park, we bought a bag of kettle corn.  It was so good with the sweet and salty and I have been craving it again.  So I got online and found a recipe (I cannot remember where this recipe came from, so I cannot give credit where credit is due!)  There are several recipes and they are all very similar.  I was very pleasantly surprised to find out how easy it is to make and it only has 4 ingredients!  All of which I have on hand!kettle corn

Yard Sale Chairs for the Cabin

A week ago my husband and I were coming back from our property in Upton, Utah and I saw a “Home Goods Sale” sign.  We were after the hours listed on this sale, but there was no date, so we decided to check it out and see if we could possibly come back the next day!  Well, the sweet lady that was holding the sale came out when we pulled in the driveway and she just opened up her sale to us!  Happy Day!  :)

I found 3 chairs, 2 wall lamps for the cabin, and a wonderful metal tub to plant flowers in!  My son came up the next morning and he got a beautiful game table, a lamp, a wall light and a gorgeous metal bowl.

These are the chairs that I found:Yard Sale Chairs (more…)


My Lemon Pie Flop

Last Sunday, for Easter, I decided that I would make a Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert.  It was only my husband and I because we had had the whole family the week before.  I am trying to be good with what I eat and I only try to have sugar one day a week.   I made the whole thing from scratch and my mouth was watering, this was going to be a real treat for us!

But this is how it turned out!:lemon pie flop (more…)


Thursday’s Thought-It’s all Good

Here is my newest installment of the Thursday’s Thought! 

I saw this saying on a plaque when I was with the girls on our “Girl’s Weekend” a few months ago and I thought that this would be a fun one to frame.  You could also print this and put it on a wood block to make it look like a canvas print.  If you do that, just be sure to print your photo in a matte finish!  I did it in black and white so that it could go with any color decor.  This is formatted to an 8 x 10 size.It's-all-Good-000-Page-1To print as a jpeg, or photo, right click over image and go to “save image as”, then save in a folder.  You can then print it or send it out to your favorite photo processing center.  For those of you that would like a PDF download click on this link:  

it’s all good

This is a great print to frame and would perfect for gifts, home decor, office decor, or for a fun teacher gift.  With all of the end of the year gifts that you need, (school, dance, sports etc.) this is a perfect little thank you gift!

 I would like to make a canvas block  with this and I can think of several places and people that this could go to!  :)

Thanks for visiting today and I hope you are having a “GOOD” Thursday!

A Primitive Garden- BOM

When my husband and I went on our little trip to Las Vegas and Arizona, I found a darling new quilt shop in Vegas!  It is called The Christmas Goose. 
They were so helpful and kind and they had so many darling quilts, kits, patterns and accessories that I just had to keep looking!  But up in one corner of the store, they had the most striking quilt hanging on display, when I asked about it, I found out it was a Block of the Month quilt and they were willing to send it to me every month!!!   Count me in!  :)A Primitive Garden Quilt Kit (more…)


4-Wheeling Weekend

Happy Monday everyone!  

I hope that you all had a great Easter Weekend and got to enjoy at least part of it with your family and those that you love.  I really enjoyed watching General Conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints this weekend and I feel renewed and ready to go forth again!  I also enjoyed watching the mini series-“AD The Bible Continues.”  I loved the first show…what do you think about it?

My husband and I have a property in Upton, Utah.  It is a hunting property that has tons of roads and trails to explore on!  Our family loves to go up there to look for deer, go fishing, hiking,  having picnics, exploring, hunting for horn sheds, and to ride the ATV’s!4-wheeling in Upton-spring 2015 (more…)
