Was full of fun for L-man and I!
We flew down to Arizona for our friends Anthony and Jeanette's wedding and visited with L-man's parents for a couple of days as well. This is the label I made for A&J's Unity quilt. Yes, they were married on October 1st!
For our trip, I went armed with all the supplies to make a new and improved scrubbie pattern. L-man's mom is a master at these and after several pointers from her, I gave it my own twist and came up with this new scrubbie pattern. I'll be posting the PDF pattern for sale sometime this week for a minimal cost for those of you who are interested.
And as you can probably imagine, L-man and I are out of our minds excited for our upcoming move. I am so thankful to you all who left us encouraging comments about our new home, you guys absolutely rock! Lenny and I sit and look at the pictures we have of our new home daily and plan and dream about all the improvements we will be making. So until we actually move in, I'm making what I can for our new home.
What do you all think of my new hand-soap dispenser for our kitchen? It was super easy to make and all you need is a jelly jar, a pump and a lid for the jelly jar. L-man drilled a hole in the lid so that the inside of the pump would fit snugly, I painted the lid parts and then glued the pump to the lid. Easy peasy!
Here's a view through the kitchen door and windows that lead on to the deck. One thing Lenny and I wanted was a home that didn't require a lot of upkeep in the yard. We both agreed that we have too many things we enjoy doing in the summertime to have a yard that required any time at all. We truly found what we were looking for in this home! The complete 1/2 acre our home sits on is natural-scaped, complete with moss rocks, a few succulents, and whatever else grows up there naturally. It really is a beautiful scene! My plan is to throw out a few wildflower seeds, plant a few munstead lavender plants and call it good.
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend and have an even better week!
