My first framing attempt :)

Good morning everyone,

Yesterday I picked up my frame from Hobby Lobby and went to town, of course I had to reposition the piece, pin and re pin, I have ocd about it being centered so here it is, I am happy with it and will probably continue to do some more on my own.  I just have to add the hook on the back so I can hang it up.

 my computer doesn't want to cooperate and rotate this photo- my apologies

I've been working on my LHN piece, I'm so in love with this, I hope I can finish her this weekend to start something else...

Today is my 5th anniversary, wow, what a journey, but a good one, filled with life lessons, love etc.  He's treating me out to the Melting Pot (fondue)  I love that place. We loved the one in Va Beach, so much so that we always had the same waiter, the management knew us, and yes, we invited the waiter to our wedding.  We were always spoiled at the one in Va Beach, but this is nice to.

Ashley and I planted our garden today, actually we made it bigger and added more tomatoes, more peppers, cucumbers, water melon, cantaloup, cilantro, basil , i think that is all.  We are excited for some fresh veggies. I also planted some flowers to.


  1. Whoo~hoo on the framing!! It looks great!! With all the crazy baseball, I didn't plant anything in my little garden patch this year ~ and your flowers are so pretty!!!!!
    Have a wonderful weekend!
