Thursday . . . This, That and the Other . . .

The other day my sister and I were talking about our blogs, and thought it would be fun to have themes for each day.  So, today, Thursday, it will be . . . Thursday, This, That and the Other.

I'm not sure what Karen will do for Thursday, you can check her blog out here , she has a beautiful blog, with lots of pretty ideas and lovely thoughts.  She's absolutely wonderful!

Yesterday was a beautiful day, finally -  a little windy, but just gorgeous!  I haven't painted my bench yet, but, I have decided to take everyone's advice.  I'm going to paint it a light, creamy yellow, and put a stencil on it, in a light brown color.  I haven't decided on the stencil, but I have several in mind.  Thank you for all your in-put, it was so helpful! I'll make sure to post pictures when I'm done.

Last year, me and my daughter made a Spring wreath for our front doors - they turned out so pretty!  I think of making wonderful memories every time I look at it!

And, I decided I would see if my fingers would work with my brain . . . I have always admired, Chief Joseph, so I wanted to draw his picture.  I need a little practice, but it was like riding a bike . . . I remembered how!

I will just leave you with one of my favorite quotes, from one of my favorite movies . . .
"No matter how dreary and gray our homes are, 
we people of flesh and blood would rather live there than in any other country, 
be it ever so beautiful. There is no place like home."
"The Wizard of Oz"

That bench will be so adorable, I can't wait to see the finished product.
You did an amazing job on Chief Joseph, I am very impressed!! And I love the wreath... so cute and springy.
I have to agree with that quote, there really is no place like home.
Tell Chris we are so excited for him!!
Have a great day!
Love, Laura
