Something New

I have been in my garden with the beautiful summer days and they are starting to show the TLC they have been getting, but oh, the hot humid weather is upon us. You can't work out there with out sweat dripping from your brow. Hot, sticky, yucky. So I decided to spend some time in the A/C ( you know shopping, or walking commercial property)and look what I found. This cabinet has an old window for a door. The old glass and putty of the windows. I loved the look of it. Not to mention I needed a place to put some dishes because my kitchen is full. The cupboard is taller than the one I had before. My old one found a new home on my porch and looks nice there.
I love that the black matches the chairs and seems to ground the room.

Stay cool!

Happy Birthday America!

My Country tis of thee, sweet land of liberty.....I think we should all be very grateful for the brave men and women who are defending all of our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

My son who is serving in Afghanistan would post this picture on my birthday...on his face book page. My daughter said to him, I am sure Mom loved the butt hanging out of your mouth...funny thing is I never thought of it. I had not heard from him for two weeks and just knowing he was OK on my birthday made me cry. My point here is that my son like so many other men and women are frighting the fight so we can say HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA. So we can let freedom ring! You see this is how I still see my sweet boy. It is so hard to believe almost 33 years have passed since I took this photo.I am feeling so proud of my son, but to be honest I just can't wait until he is home safe and sound along with the rest of his unit. As we hung our flag out today I realize how much I have taken for granted over the years. ~Freedom~ such a gift.

~Happy Fourth of July~
