Busy,busy,busy...that's what my week has been like....I have been out working in the yard getting my flower beds ready for summer...went and bought four loads of red it distributed Thur out the shrubs and flower gardens...So much to little time...I always run out of daylight...I'll be glad when it don't get dark until 9 and after..

I thought I would post some pics of my tulips,forsythia bushes and random pics of my yard...

I went out junking last Saturday...Went to a Craft/Flea Market and bought an old washboard.I hung it in my downstairs Bathroom for now until I decide what I want to do with it.

Off to get some housework done....Hopefully I will be able to post more this evening..

Until we meet again.Prim Hugs....Trena

Sunshine Sunday

Hi all my blogging friends.....Its a gorgeous day, 88 here in Pa...Yesterday was the same...beautiful weather....This will be a two part post since I didn't get to post yesterday..

I went to a Flea Market-Craft Show yesterday...allot of nice things..really pricey though..I bought an old wash board for $8.00...which was pretty reasonable for the size of it...

Since I missed yesterdays post here a stitchery that I just got done for my daughter.....This is what I do in the evenings after dinner and the dishes is over while relaxing and watching TV........Share Faith,Offer Prayer,Gather Hope.......

This is one of my Homespun Bunnies I make every Easter.....This is one I done up formyself to put on a rocking chair that was mine when I was a little girl.

Wishing everyone a restful and glorious Sunday....Enjoy the beautiful weather..
Time we meet again...

I am so ready for summer to get here...Are Forsythia bushes are in full bloom along with the daffodils and tulips.....We have 22 forsythia bushes all together in our yard...every where you look you see yellow....So pretty this time of year
Wishing everyone a glorious and beautiful weekend....

Whatcha Workin On Wednesday

I have been remodeling downstairs....alot of painting and rearranging I took alittle break and gave the top of refrigerator a makeover....

I thought this would be a great pic for today on what I was workin on.....

Remodeling and rearranging has been fun and exhausting at the same time....So much to do so little time.....I start one project and always find something else to paint or rearranging while trying to finish.....Not good on working on one thing at a time....I have always been a multitask er...I feel I get more done that way...While one thing is drying I work on something that has already been started.......

Some people call that a sickness...I just call that being normal.....

Off to finish some projects before bed everyone have a great evening....Talk to you soon.....

Rainy day in Pa.

It's Monday again...hope everyone had a great weekend...It was beautiful weather here in Pa. all weekend long..temperature was in the 70's....

I painted my entertainment center today to go with the new and improved family room downstairs.....With the Umber walls now done the entertainment center stuck out like a sore thumb so I just painted it black in certain areas....Not all over....

I washed my windows and mini blinds and put my Country House curtains back up....It's amazing how dirty those windows get over the winter........I painted my Corner Hutch black w/cream shelves and put it in the front corner of the family room.....

While my paint was drying I worked on some stitchery that I had already done....Putting them in some black frames.....I still haven't decided where I want to put them yet....but believe you me I will find a place.

Here's another one that I had done.

Until next time....Blessings...Trena

It's Thursday already, I can't believe how the days just fly by...It's beautiful weather here today so I am going to wash some of my quilts and put them out on the line to dry in the warm sun......

Just finishing up on my family room downstairs....Everything is falling in place....walls three fourths done and I have to give my entertainment center another coat of paint... I can't wait to get furniture back where it belongs and accessories up on the walls........
Everyone have a great day...I'm off to do some laundry and enjoy the warm weather..

This will be a short post....I'm still working on the Family room downstairs,finishing up on the painting of the walls. I can't believe how much different the room looks already....I should have done this long before this....Everyone that has seen it so far just falls in love with the transformation...

This is a picture of my mantel in my Living room that I have changed for spring and summer....I decorate it for the four seasons....Well better get to my painting....the room is not going to get done with me setting here....

Everyone have a great day....

Happy April Fool's day .....cold and rainy here in Pa today....I started remodeling my familyroom downstairs yesterday...Finally talked my DH into letting me paint over the paneling that's been down there I think forever....This pics is what it looks like now...going to change dramatically within the next week...
I bought paint from Lowes ..Valspar...Montgomery what color I am going to use on the walls....Everything has to be primed first,otherwise the paint won't adhere to the paneling.
Well I am off to paint so everyone have a great day..
Prim hugs,Trena
