Bad Blogger is Back

I've been gone for 3 weeks, and boy do I feel like a bad blogger. Kids are keeping me busy...cramping my junkin style if you know what I mean. LOL All kidding aside about the kiddos...I had company at my house for about a week. Then this week I came down with a stomache flu bug and I am just getting better today. I set about cleaning my house because it seems like no one else in this house can. I'm pretty beat already and I have much, much more to get done.
I wanted to show you the flowers that I got from my husband. On Tuesday it was our 14th year wedding anniversary. He had gotten me a dozen pink roses, but our cat managed to kill a bunch of them. I salvaged what I could and did a little display with them.
I also bought this chippy little guy a couple weekends ago. He was outside and only $7.50. I just about died. I think he use to be part of a fountain because he has a hole in his mouth. Love him. I also got this vintage wallpaper box that same weekend. I love wallpaper boxes and have about 4 or 5 of them.
I also made another apron this past week. You'll never believe what it is made of. I used a new Martha Stewart valance (thrift store find), and cut it to size for this apron. I cut a runner for the pocket. On the sides of the pockets are little white yo yo's with pink buttons in the middle. I used a vintage ribbon for the tie. I love the way it turned out and can't wait to wear it when I do a show. It's almost too pretty to wear.
I'm hoping that you all are enjoying your summer. Take care until next time!

    love the $7.50 statue. that is crazy cheap! the apron is so rachel. you could make and sell those all day and call them "aprons that are so rachel" and folks would fight to buy them!!
