A FUN Week & Mirror is Up !

 Last Tuesday we had a very fun time making "clay" animals at a studio not far from home. Grandgirl, her friend and us 2 "grandmas" went and created the animals above. I made the white puppy, grandgirl made the light brown puppy, dark puppy made by her friend and the panda was made by the other grandma!

 It was fun to learn how to make animals at this shop. The class was $16.00 per person and you completed the project there. After we went to lunch, shopping at a couple antique shops and there was a scrapbook store in this little town too! I bought some pretty papers!

 The barn wood frame and birdie were recent purchases. The door knob plate and metal piece were bought on Thursday when Faye, from Wild Rose Vintage and I met at Haupt Antique occasional shop in Apple Valley, lunch at Panera's, YUM! and found a couple of thrift stores. We didn't get any photos of  us :(  Faye had a really good time and bought some great pieces!

Here is the new mirror above the mantle. I'm WORKING on what I want on the mantle....The pink vase is also a recent purchase and it's a Red Wing. 

Thank you for all your very sweet and lovely comments about my "Bride"! 6 weeks to go!

This week I get to pick up my corset, LOL!, go to eye doctor for new contacts, taking a card class on Wednesday evening and it's a "Tea" theme.  Saturday is the "brides" bachelorette party. I am the sober driver! They are renting a boat on a lake for a 4 hour cruise, then a taco bar at her home. I'm not going on the boat....I know there are a couple other things going on...anyway...time is flying!!! 

I've been making some Halloween cards! Just in the mood :)  Oh, I ordered new flooring for the main bathroom! Nothing like a wedding to really get some projects done! It's a vinyl flooring. I'll be sure to take before and after photos. Hubby and I will be the floor, (mostly hubby!) and I will paint the existing cabinet and we are adding bead board on one wall! It sure needs an update!

Okay, I think that is everything I had to say! LOL!
