Thoughts on a Thursday....Random

I  "found" a new blog today...
Here it is:
Lisa from...
She is a home school Mom from Texas 
with some funny stories.
I "found" her  while I was blog surfing.
Somehow I manage to do this while reading blogs I follow...
I guess that's why some days I don't get a blog post done.
Phone conversation to a friend today:
I call her...she answers!
Me: know where your phone is...
and its on!
  Then we both laugh!
Me: I am going to call you everyday...
so you will know where your phone is!  
Most days...
 I have  my phone tucked neatly in my pocket 
and usually have it on. 
Shhhhh....but somedays I forget.
Here in the "North"...
we are hoping for spring...
but not planning on it until May or June.
God has been giving us a little bit each day...
blue sunny skies...
even a few minutes is nice...
since rain has been predicted for every day this week.  

Take care,

What is in a Gift?

I had a birthday this month...
this is what a friend gave me:
 This is what I found inside:
I  have  my  very  own  set  of   PINK  tools !!!
  LOVE  these  tools  already...
  I  was  forever  asking  my  10  year  old  son...
where  did  you  put   such  and  so.
(Because  the  tool   I  was  looking   for
was  NEVER  in  the tool  drawer)
Have   a  
 Marvelous Monday !
Take care,
Don't  you  love  it

What's With This?
And this....

I thought it was spring?

That's the point....                  

I "thought" it was spring...

Remembering that this is Montana...
and we can have a snowstorm at anytime.

Oh   Well...
I still have "spring" in my heart and mind.

Take care,

Marvelous Monday Mini Makeovers

I am constantly looking for ideas for "sprucing up" things in my house.
This being said:
 Here are 
2 items in my house
 that I have done 
Mini  Makeovers on:

The  1st  is  a  chair...
I collect chairs...
after all  
when people come over...
they have to have a place to sit.

 Above   is  the   before   Picture
Here  is  the  After  picture
I  think  I  paid  $10  for  chair...
 $ 5 for the fabric

# 2
Cardboard Box.  did  read  that  correctly...
Here  is  what  it  looked  like  before:
Here  is  the  After:
Yes,  I  had  Fabric  left  over  from  the chair
to use on the box.
I  only  covered  one  end  of  the  box,
and   about  3 inches  on  each  side.
I  used  some   craft  glue  to  stick  it  down.

I   love  doing  simple  but  nice  looking  things...
especially  if   they  don't  cost  must  to do.
What    do you  like  to  do  to beautify  your home?
Take care...until next time,

Broken or Cracked ???

What would you do if you found this in your pantry?

I do believe that someone  sat something heavy on this.
So....what would you do with the glass...
make something
throw it away?

Next  ITEM:
Actually Items...
My Mugs....
They  sure  look  sad....
I  have  dropped  each  one  of  these....
The one in the middle...lost its handle...just today 8~(
My daughter thinks we should break them and make a mosaic stepping stone.
I am not quite ready to do that.
I am just a least with my mugs
Moral of the story...
