Quote blocks

I've seen these blocks before on many blogs and websites and thought I'd give it a go. I am not sure on the size of these blocks as I didn't buy them, they were already laying around the house   I sanded them down a bit just to get the rough edges off. Then I used a can of off white spray paint and did a very quick coat. I wanted to be able to see some of the wood grain through the paint for a more rustic, rugged, antiquey look. Yes, I'm aware that antiquey isn't a real word. Ssssh! This is my post!
After a quick coat of paint
 I used americana-ish cardstock and cut 3 strips to fit the sides. I used a mixture of glue and water for this as I don't have mod podge. I applied the words God bless America that I had cut from my handy dandy cricut machine. And voila, cute little blocks to sit on the antique stereo in the living room.These pics are horrible, taken with my phone.

With a little bit of light blue tulle

I left them just as they are, I like the look of them simple and stacked.

Weekend wordle

i almost forgot the weekend wordle! but just in the nick of time, i posted it. enjoy!

you've got to clicky clicky to make the picture bigger! go on, it's worth it. :)

Someday Maybe

Hello lovelies in blogland! I hope you all had a good weekend! Sucks that it's nearing an end though, huh? {sigh} I have so much that I wanted to get done this weekend and just haven't. I got my grocery shopping finished, bathroom cleaned and steam mopped and dishes done. But there is so much that I should have gotten completed and didn't. Not only was it not completed, but it was never started. And I wanted to, I just didn't have the umph to move. Ever feel that way? It totally sucks.

I had some things in mind that I wanted to try out this weekend. I got the boards sanded that I wanted to but I also needed to paint them and make me some pretties for my living room. And I always get the motivation to do these little projects that are speaking to me in the evenings-that seems to be when the house is quietest. But of course, it's dark and cold! Not to mention windy! I was going to go ahead and paint but not with that wind!

So, I have come to the conclusion that I need a craft room. Not just any craft room will do. No. It will be an ultimate craft room! With wonderful, bright lighting. It will come, of course, fully equipped with everything any crafter could dream up! Woodworking tools, tons of work space. Lots of crates and stored paints and ribbons & buttons. Stones & fabrics. Flowers & beads. Lots of photographs on the walls. And maybe just for the fun of it a cozy little nook with a comfortable chair and blanket, perfect for reading.
Oh, if only I could have it my way...

It may look something like this...

Can I borrow a boat?

With all of the snow melting (finally) and all of the rain we have been getting, I was beginning to question whether or not I was going to have to purchase a boat. These pictures aren't the best but you get the idea.
The sad thing about this is, there are places that are underwater and there are residences that are flooded in and can't get in or out.
Right next to the river and the road
The next pictures are all pictures of the river.

She has fever!!

So, I finally broke down and took her! And I must admit, I pretty much loved the movie! I had to elbow her a few times and remind her that the other people in the theater could hear her as well and didn't come to hear her sing! But she had a great time and I have been deemed the best mom on the planet. Sweeeet! Wait til she gets in trouble next...I'm back to mean, old, boring mom!

Tweet, tweet!

I'm a little behind the times, I know, but I just updated twitter or "tweeted" for the very first time! Kind of exciting, somewhat scary!
