Home sweet home...






I love being home during the summer...hearing the frogs croakin...and the sprinklers goin.  It was 92 today and I LOVED it.  After the winter and nonexistent spring...I welcome the warmth and sunshine.  I have not popped in for a few days...been busy with this and that.  My dh had to leave for a 2-3 week stint working several hours away and I miss him dearly.   Work has been slow coming for us and I am glad for the blessing of it but sorely miss seeing him puttering around on the lawn and such.  Glad to have my son and our sidekick lab Riley , and our two cats.   I thought I would pop in with this little primitive house I altered awhile back.  I painted it white first and than used my beloved Helmar crackle. I also used it on the little home and heart sign...it works really well on plain ole papers.    I than used some new papers that I got from girls paperie...that have the vintagey look I love and covered the little wooden house and than went to work embellishing it.  That is the fun part huh?  Using bits and bobs to make something unique and yours.  I adore the combination of aquas and pinks...fresh and fun.     Hope you enjoy and sooo hpe you are all able to enjoy summer!  hugs, cherry
