Scrolly thing for a buck ninety nine….




Love my find at the Goodwill for $1.99 ! I had previously just visited Hobby Lobby and looked at other wood –not plastic -scrolly things which were around $35.00 bucks ! I found this one (and it is wood – Yeah Me !) – my favorite gaudy gold – why O why is everything this color ?!?!?! ( I will apologize in advance to Dawn- who loves gaudy gold and thinks I am a geek for changing it !") In less then 24 hours , I had it done and hung. Ooo laa laa it looks so fancy schmancy…

“Oh, give me a home where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play…”


“Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play….” I feel a bit like Sheila (be a sweetie !) at Notesongs blog……I did play the violin for 10 years-maybe we could do a duet…  I STINK at singing….LOL ! Anyway, back to our subject…I am not showing you buffalo…but – there is a ranch north of me that has a large herd – another time… and no deer today  - just a super large herd of antelope. Antelope is not in season (other wise you would not see such a large herd). I have seen antelope allot in the last few weeks  but, I never have my camera ! My hubby called me the other day and told me where they were and I quick jumped in the car and headed out – just about 5 minutes away….anyway I got there and they were super close and I took a ton of pictures – I then looked to see what they looked like, etc… and I DID NOT HAVE MY MEMORY CARD IN THE CAMERA – arrrrrggghhhhhhh. So I went back home and got it and then of course the deers – I  mean antelope had walked further from the road – I think they didn’t like me :o(   I told them I wasn’t going to shoot them – only by picture – jeeeeeeeshhhh !

Enjoy !

I wish I would have had that blasted memory card the first time, as I would have gotten lots of pictures showing there fluffy butts – they are really cool !

If the “Other Lady” could see what I did…..

015 You all know about my love affair with Craig ….sometimes I have to confront the “Other Lady” !

I have been looking for a mirror and I of course will not spend the money on a new one….I have been looking at Craig for months…I finally found this lovely and Oooooooo my favorite Gaudy Gold….for twenty bucks. I called and made arrangements to meet the “Other Lady”….The “Other Lady”  said it just didn’t fit in her new home and oh how she spent so much money on it, when she bought it……Well, if she could see it now…….she may be wishing she never sold this beauty…..



I used my favorite Krylon oil rubbed bronze spray paint  aka ORB.

If you are wanting to add ORB to your spray paint collection - I have only been able to buy it at Wally World.

Stop by Susan’s to get some great ideas on how to spruce up something  -maybe it’s the “Other Ladies'” or maybe its something you already own !

A Sweet Tweet Re-tweet

If I were a bird, I would love to have this Sweet Tweet Re-tweet !

I saw this little birdhouse at the dollar store and instantly thought of a tassel.

Here is what I used:

Dollar wood bird house

Various paints – practiced my roses…

Yarn – left over from my daughters short crochet lesson


Fray tack – a must to seal those edges from fraying

Hot glue gun

Spice lid

Total cost – One dollar – as I had all the supplies….

From this:


To this:


My son said “Mom, the birds are NOT going to use that house !”

Well, duhhhhhhhh it is just another dust collector – perfect for Valentines Day !

2009 Before and Afters

Here is how I often look during my “photo shoots” see my assistants – they work for cheap.


You will notice a lot of my “GAUDY GOLD” went to black – but, once in a while I do branch out and use another color – Yes, Everyone teases me about my “black” – in Blogland , my kids friends , relatives, etc.
