This may seem a bit strange, but I love the colors in this dress and it's how I picked the colors for my this quilt. This post is from over three years ago and it has gone crazy on pinterest, if you would like to follow my boards HERE

The only color that just didn't work for me was the black belt and I couldn't find anything I liked, so I just left it off.

Here's a look at one of the 16 blocks ! 
It worked !

Take the Picture

Pin It

A few days ago I put up my maybe photo file and I heard from some that they don't go many places and just can't get good pictures. I've been thinking about that, and here I go.

YES, you can and I'm going to show you ! 

I walked out the patio door of the lanai, about 6 steps.And here is what I took pictures of

Maybe Photo File

Pin It

I have a photo file named, "MAYBE's"Meaning contest ideas and one's I think are my best. I have gone off the deep end a bit with picture taking, I'm HOOKED and I love it. It's opened up a new way of looking at things. And probably the best is really seeing things, not just look at them, BUT see them.

Adding MY Painted Flowers to Doorway Glass

Pin It

I have redone the glass at our front door. A few of the neighbors have put the reflection paper in...

but I couldn't just do that ! 

Here's what I've been working on, making home mine.

Off to Lowes (not a paid mention) measurements in hand. Wanted it to be easy to bend in. I needed nine inches, but this was cut eight inches and they cut my 80 inches. Board is just under 1/4" thick.

This is why the board had to bend, I didn't want nails, used the plastic nooks so it can be taken up or down as I like. Would like to do more for seasons.

FROM the Outside, How loud do you think the condo association will YELL ?  I NEVER mention what I do to them. Just let them notice on their own.

p.s. Would LOVE to paint this side too, but I'm going to wait and see, maybe picking my battles a bit?
