I just love these jewelry boxes.
I especially love the handle! And the color is so soft and sweet!
I have been collecting vintage metal tins for awhile now. I really like the Christmas ones but when I saw this one today I just had to have it. I will probably keep buttons in it.

This Big Red Wagon is not just any old big red wagon. It was driven and pulled probably hundreds if not thousands of miles by my little children whom are now all grown up. I planted some Moss Rose in it yesterday. This wagon and I will never part.
We Are Going Nuts!
Hubby and I talked about planting pecan trees on this property when we got enough money to get the trees. Well, my sweet brother-in-law (Hubby's baby brother) brought us a bunch of pecan trees that came up in his yard. I just love the way God uses people to bless our lives.

Tracey @ A Cottage Industry. I decided to go with Red, white, and blue theme since Independence day is right around the corner.
Thanks for stopping by. Please come again!
Hubby and I are thinking of someday making this a screened in porch.
It would make a great place to sleep in the summertime!
The table cloth is actually a quilt top that my mother-in-law pieced together.
Maybe someday I will make a quilt out of it. It is huge! I found that little beaded purse a few years ago at a thrift store and the flowers grow wild on our property.
I love to sit here with my coffee in the mornings.

Saturday I got to harvest my first batch of sweet basil. I sure was wishing I had some mozzarella cheese and fresh tomatoes to go with it. I chopped it up, added some olive oil, garlic powder, and a little salt, bagged it up and put it in the freezer for later use.

Here is what they looked like before I painted them. My whole house has these same cabinets. Yuck!
Here is another "after" pic.
Yesterday morning Hubby and I were talking about the chickens (people my age tend to talk about important topics such as chickens or the weather or the garden). Anyway, I told him I was pretty sure one of my chickens was a rooster (the one I have been calling Rhett). Hubby said well if so he will be trying to crow pretty soon. Moments later as Hubby was loading up his truck out in the barn I heard a noise and said "What was that"? Hubby says "I think that was Willie" (the dawg). Well, I stepped out of the barn to let the chickens out and there I heard Rhett making an attempt to crow! It was a little weak but I was still proud of him.
