This weekend I used a....

Power Washer!!!!

It was such a wonderful , warm day on Saturday that I wanted to be outside at all costs! Soooo, I started to wash these cool awnings by hand and soon decided I would be there all day! So, Larry, my friendly neighbor lent me his power washer....
It worked great and was very fun to a water machine gun! I even left hubby a message on the driveway....oh ya!!!!! Well, you'll soon be seeing these in the barn...the sale is less than 2 months away!
ta ta for now!

Yesterday we had the most beautiful snow, (a huge thing for us East Texans!!)...about 4 inches and it looked so wonderful on the trees and just make everything look so fresh and clean!
We had to snap some pictures....

Mark, my Maine man, who is very familar with snow and how to play it in, got Rebekah and I good in our snowball fight!!

My favorite tree..

Our very homemade snowman!!!!
On another note, I just picked up the very first copy of Flea Market Style magazine and it is great!!!! There are lots of fun ideas and cool ways to implement some vintage style into your home!

Remeber these Lockers????

Do you remeber these great blue lockers that we had at the fall sale? Well, one of my sweet friends bought them for her son's room! They got a makeover and now fighting Aggie Maroon! Whoop!!!
Don't they look great and I love that they are functional also. This guy stores all his sports stuff, some clothes and other guy things in them...isn't nice that everything is organized and not on the floor???? Of course, the football helmets add a touch of decor also! Touchdown!

I also spotted where my friend had hung up her hymnal the bathroom! What a clever idea!!!! It is a great place for a little reading, don't you think? Football was definetly on the brain yesterday! Watch out, if you invite me over, I may be bringing my camera and checking in on how you are using all your barn sale finds too!
How have you used your new treasures???Send me a picture of something you bought at the barn and I'll post it for all to see!!!!
Treasure hunting for you,

Heartfelt and Handmade!

Rebekah and I got the Valentines box out today...It was the perfect day to be "crafty". I still love a handmade valentine and those who really know me, know that Valentines Day is my second favorite holiday and we like to celebrate it at our house!!! Rebekah and I decided to try these heart flowers that I saw in the recent Family Fun magazine...
All you do is cut out 3 hearts, 2 leaves and the center fold the leaves so they are creased, punch a hole in the bottom or middle of the pieces and insert the sucker in the hole, then put scotch tape under the leaves to hold it all in place...the magazine suggested writing your valentines messages on the leaves...we added stickers to this one!

I loved that this is a valentine idea that little hands can do also....

The proud chickadee! She made these for her sweet "girlfriends!"

And until V-day, I have a cute bouquet in my basket! These are fast, easy and cute!
Enjoy the day!!
