Day 15

Here is our bed. I finally got my pillows I've been working on, the past 3 days, finished!! I love how they turned out. They're definitely not perfect, but they're good enough for the girl my man goes with!
I made the "you and me" pillows and the red ones behind them. I just found the idea for the "you and me" pillows on Pinterest, and I'll try and get a tute on my other blog, next week. It's so easy!
Tomorrow is the last day of August. Where has the time gone? But my little niece is do on Monday!!!! Can't wait to meet her.
Have a good evening!

I needed a shelf for my craft room... So I made one!

You can see the helpful dogs in the back ground. They're playing big!

Day 5

I've finally got something finished! My craft closet is usually a mess, but I wanted this new one to be a bit more organized. There are probably a few things that will change as I use it, but I'm loving it so far. Now all I got to do is finish the rest of the house so I can do some projects I want to do!

My Cowboy

Sorry I haven't got a picture of the house, I forgot! Bobby and I went and fed yesterday and I got a couple pictures of that!

My china cabinet. I finally get to have my china out 3 years later. I love it! Now I need a special occasion to use it!

Day 3

Im sorry I didn't get around to posting yesterday. Maybe I'll do 2 today! This is the hall on the guest side. I'm going to eventually frame this map, but this is it for now!

Oh and we got rain yesterday! Praise the Lord!
Have a fabulous weekend!

The Little House in the Cotton Patch

Well the move is done and we're all moved in the new house! It is still a mess, but I'm getting one room done at a time. I've decided to post a little daily picture with updates. We'll see how long it will take!

This is her. Our little house!

Arrowhead Hunting

One of Bobby and my favorite things to do when we make a trip to my parents is take a hike and look for arrowheads. Since this past weekend was my sister's baby shower, we got to go home and enjoy the cool morning air!

 As we started our walk, the goats were going out for the day!

 Bunny rabbit didn't know I could see him!

 We had just reached the top of the mountain (road anyway)!

An Indian grinding hole

 We met up with the horses!




 And I couldn't resist taking a little ride!

Almost home! A great hour and a half walk! And we found a couple arrowheads!

Shop Name

I've been contemplating this for a couple of weeks now. I am going to start a shop on
Etsy is kinda intimidating to me for some reason. I've shopped a little on there, but it is all a little confusing and I hadn't grasped how I could make a shop work on there. With a little encouragement from the hubby ("Don't be afraid to do something just cause you don't know what might happen" -man I love him!) and friends, I've decided to stick my foot in.

I'm planning to start small with a few little projects I've made and see how it goes. My big plan is to start making more and more baby stuff and eventually start a baby bedding line or something like that. Even though that may be a while off, I'm looking into some different opportunities.

With all that in mind... I wanted to put a poll up and see what you all thought.

 I need a name for my shop.

What do you think???

I'm leaning towards baby bedding and sewing things. With that in mind.... let the ideas flow!

I'm eager to hear your ideas!


Furniture is moving it's way in!

 As the house is getting closer and closer to finished, a few pieces of furniture are making their way into the house!

A couple weeks ago Bobby went with his boss to Mississippi to move his boss' mother-in-law. There were some items that wouldn't fit in her new apartment and so they came home with Bobby and Dennis. Dennis' father-in-law built furniture and so there were several pieces that he had built that Dennis' family will I guess inherit. Since they have no place for them in their house, we get to store them!! I am so excited. I've been wanting a china cabinet since I got married. This one fits perfect in the new house, like it was made for it. I can now bring out my china that has been in a box for 3 years!!

Some friends of ours are moving from here in Garden City back to Midland. Bobby helped them load up some heavy stuff a week or so ago, and in doing so acquired a new CLOCK!!! We've kinda wanted a grandfather clock, but are no way in a place to spend money on one (and probably never will). So when they were tired of moving this clock around and offered it to us, we snatched it up! Last night we went to picked it up and then put it in the new house. This is the second piece of furniture to go in our new house!

There is still a little work to do on it. We messed with it a little, but this morning will tell if it is still keeping time.

You might not can tell, but the floor is clean. Bobby and the guys have been doing finishing touches on the house. One being sealing the floor. It looks so amazing!

This is a picture of the hearth/TV cabinet. Everything is picked up off the floor! It might look silly now, but in front of the that tall rock wall will be a wood burning heater! It's one of the last things to do and not high on the list since it is 102* outside!
Doesn't the floor look nice and shiny??

As far as an update... All we're really waiting on is the carpet and countertops to come in. We have to finish the shelves in closets then that's it!

Now I just gotta go pack!
