TBT ~ Travels from the Midwest, Summer 2016



Last summer was a super busy 5300+ mile
trip around 14 states
as I've brought up a bit before.
Today, though, I thought I'd share
some of those photos from the passenger window
with you...

Sunday Double Header ~ "Welcome" Banner using Recycled Blue Jeans



Part 2 of today’s Sunday Double Header is all about reuse, recycle, and repurposing several pairs of worn out blue jeans into a fun Welcome BannerThis sign can be used indoors or outdoors to welcome friends and family to your home.  

Placed above a doorway, over a window {as I’ve used it here}, or hung outside between two trees or on a barn or house wall, this adorable and easy to make Welcome Banner is a perfect way to invite friends into your home for any occasion.


$10 Thriftshop Challenge ~ Chalkware and Silver


Good Sunday morning to you!  Hope your weekend is going well. Today I thought I’d share my latest $10 thriftshop challenge finds with you.  I’ll probably do a double header today as I am still in the process of finishing up the write-up for the blue jeans craft project.  Hope to have that out later this afternoon for you now that Hubby helped me to get my computer back up and happy.  Computers… gotta love ‘em!  ;)

Good morning!




Good morning ~ the birds are 
chirping madly outside at the birdfeeder
the sun is brightly shining and a
breakfast of cinnamon bagels with
a warm cup of tea
is up!

TBT Thursday ~ The Hermosa Madonna of the Prairies



It’s Throwback Thursday for me over here at French Ethereal today and I’m thinking maybe for a few other posts here in February as well.  Madonna of the Prairie is today's unusual and cool post about how this lovely statue ended up out in a hay field in western South Dakota and also a little bit more of the behind the scenes from our cross country trip through 14 western states last summer.


It’s no mystery that I like garden statues with angels being a favorite of mine and recently I shared how I found our little statues, “The Girls” as I’ve come to call them.  My hubby and I were on our way to visit Custer State Park hoping to see a great herd of American bison and later to eat lunch at a log cabin restaurant up among the pine trees…

Playing with Black and White ~ My New Canon Zoom Lens




This week has been all about something
I can't share yet... until it happens
but
you'll be sure to hear if it does!

Until then, I'm all over the place making ready
so no real posts this week yet
since Sunday until now...

Today I thought I'd share some 
black and white 
and sepia
photos with you that I've taken recently 
with my new
Canon Zoom Lens
EF 24-105mm IS USM
{hopefully I've got all that right! I put the whole thing in the title
up top, just in case! ;) }
