What I did this summer: Part III

: :  A special painting for some special people.

: :  I have done a lot painting this summer. I had big ideas for the girls' room paintings but so did they.  A cat eating ice cream?  A dog eating an ice cream sundae while sitting on a rainbow?  How could I not fulfill those requests?

: : I made a Superman skirt for a not-so-girly girl.  I love her style.

: : Another lamp! Pottery barn, eat your heart out.  I made this is just a few minutes (and a trip to target).  I had this sitting on the kitchen counter (note banana) on a grey day and it was so lovely.

: :  A trio of HP pillows.  This was a craft project with my niece who took 2 of the pillows off to college with her.

I have a little girl here requesting glitter. Gotta go.

What I did this summer. Part II

And now for the scary adventures.  In June a quick and fierce storm blew through our neck of the woods.  It is the first time we have had to get in the basement during a storm.  Have you seen our basement?  Have you seen Silence of the Lambs?

These are just a few of the many, many trees in our neighborhood that fell during the storm and the one on the tree service truck fell two days after the storm. Most of the trees were 100+ years old.  One was 220 years old!  Our next door neighbors lost two huge trees that shade the east side of our house and we miss them very much.
Other than the truck and the tree LIMB that fell on our neighbors guest house, there was not much damage to our close neighbors homes and thankfully no one was hurt!

What I did this summer. Part I

Our swimsuits are trashed, it was a great summer. Looking back, I can honestly say we didn't waste a day.  Some days were playing on the porch in our jammies kind of days, but that was just what we all needed. We had lots of adventures, some fun, some scary.
I am not making any apologies for the long blogging break, my time was better spent having a good old fashioned summer.  Don't you agree?
