Have you heard about Pinterest?  If you haven't had a chance to check it out, do it soon but let me warn you that it's addicting.  If you would like to check out my boards, click here.  There are so many great ideas on Pinterest and it's so easy to use.  Here's a brief description of Pinterest:

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. To get started, request an invite

I love to pin recipes, home decorating ideas, remodeling projects, sewing and scrapbooking ideas, cute fun pictures, and so much more.  It's really a virtual pinboard - just more bookmarks saved on your computer.

Silhouette Project and Flea Market Find

I've been looking at things in my house trying to figure out what will be the next victim of a Silhouette makeover and the lucky winner is ..... the plain snack jar. Come on down plain snack jar and lets have a look at you before your makeover. You're nice, but you need a little color. 

I think pink would be a great color on you and it would brighten up the pantry.  Let's take a look at you after the makeover.  You're beautiful!!  Thank you Silhouette for another fine job!

I purchased the snack jar at Goodwill for $5 and the vinyl is leftover from another project.  A great update for a little money is priceless in my book.

Last week I visited the indoor flea market in town and found these lovelies to add to my amber tiara sandwich glass collection and for under $30, they were a bargain!

I love the floral pattern on this bowl.

This week I'm linking up to:

Please take a few moments to see what everyone has been up to lately.  Have a wonderful week!

More Legos

Many of you know that my youngest son loves legos - he is even entering a lego creation in the 4-H fair this year.  Well, my husband's cousin sent us this picture (her youngest son loves legos too) and I knew I had to blog about it. 

These pictures are from various sites and were from the 2010 Royal Ascot.  Click here to read more about it or read a snipet below: 

Ms Carradine-French, whose hat included a Lego Big Ben and London Eye, said of the 2kg creation, made of 1,400 plastic bricks: "I'm wearing it all day. It's very heavy."

Her hat, and a traditional top hat worn by Mr James, were designed by Leicester College fashion student Charlotte Samuel.

Charlotte's design was built by professional Lego builder Duncan Titmarsh, of Brickin-it. He has been collecting Lego for more than 18 years.

The woman's hat took him 14 hours to build, while the top hat was made from 1,000 bricks and was produced in eight hours.

Ryan's dream - Stoney Lonesome

I wanted to share a video that Carl made about Ryan dreaming about his dirtbike race this last weekend at Stoney Lonesome Motorcycle Club.  Ryan placed 3rd in this race.

This will be the last time I do this

Friends that have know me for the last few years know that I usually dig up my hostas and move them every year.  Every year, without fail, I do this and this will be the last time.  Why, you ask?  Because I'm old, tired, and don't have the energy any longer.  Plus I'm too busy trying to keep up with my boys and other activities that I enjoy.  So I've decided that it's time to downsize the flower gardens. Anyway, enough with the whining and lets look at some of my gardens and some beautiful pictures of hostas.  These are some gardens that I like.

Have a great week!
