A New Look!

Love, love, love the new color of our family room!!!
DD Randi suggested grey for this room (she had 'rockport grey' by Ben Moore picked out) so I brought home some samples and DD Megan helped me decide on 'rolling pebble' (by Behr)!
The paint is still a little wet above(and ignore the flowered couch, it's going!) but you can see the big improvement from the 'medieval gold'!!
The 'rolling pebble' really coordinates with the 'baguette' color that I have on the upstairs walls and the stair well which flows down to the family room!!

It's such a good feeling to have clean carpets and fresh walls!!

I'll have to update after I get the room pulled together and some what decorated!!

...more bracelets!

Finished up a few more....
.....I'm having fun hunting for old buttons!!
They remind me of my mom and grandma
.....and all the sewing they did!
I love digging through old buttons!
They sure don't make them like they use to!

Crocheted Bracelets!

My latest project(s) has been these bracelets!!
A SI from Colorado has a friend who wanted one made from a bracelet a client of hers had. So in a round about way I ended up with the bracelet and came up with these!

They are so fun and have made great gifts!
I have some ideas in my head for some variations.
I'll share when I have a few done!!
(I just added the turquoise one above, it's for DD#1, better get it in the mail since she may see it here! The button is redder than it looks here.)


Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Two Days With Eli!

Last week I spent 2 days with Eli while his mommy went to Arizona on business!
All I can say is that the time with him was priceless!
Look at this precious face!

I had forgotten how busy a 15 month old can be. If he wasn't eating or sleeping he was moving non stop! So fun!! I'm looking forward to the next time that I can have Eli all to my self again.


Back in January I told about Tim joining the new adult hockey league here in Willmar.
Well, today was the championship game(s)! Papa Wheelies won both games(double elimination)! What a thrill for the guy's to be the champs the first year of the league!

The proud Papa's!

A small church across the street from our post office has a small billboard that they post simple (thought provoking) quotes on.
Years ago they posted:
Let your life speak
more loudly
than your lips.
I love says so much!
Or...we can say so much by not saying a thing!
This week I noticed their latest quote:
If there is to be
peace in the home
there must be
peace in the heart.
I wish this for everyone!
For all my dear family and friends who are finding themselves in turmoil with issues in their control (and out of their control)!
I wish you peace!
