Antique Bike

This is a picture my new garden ornament!! A antique bike. It is from the 1950's. 3 speed with speedometer and mudflap lol.... I don't have a garden to put it in right now but I will some day.

Fathers Day

Happy Monday everybody. Well we had a warm weekend here and my husband and I got a ton accomplished. The garden is officially planted!! We have been working on it for 3 years. We had to clear, stump, root, haul in more dirt, rototiller, and fence. It was a long process but we are finally done. Well Kinda next year we are adding in strawberries and raspberry also a row of alternating purple and white lilacs in the back. Oh heck we will never be done... but at least we will have fresh veggies in a couple of months..Here are a couple of pictures I will send more when it is up and bloomed ...

Surprise Party for Grandma

This weekend we had a surprise party for my grandma. She was so very surprise. My grandma has always wanted to go to Hawaii so for her present that is where she is going. They presented her gift with a wonderful poem and a box full of leis, grass skirts and sunglasses. It was priceless :)
So Surprised :)
Ready for Hawii

I was given the pleasure of making the card and this is what I made. I forgot to take pictures of the inside and also the envelope... It turned out just beautiful. I was so happy with it...
