A Little Bit of This and That

Well, hello friends,
I hope you all have a wonderful
July 4th celebration.
The summer is upon us. . 
The weather has been over 100 degrees
And we have had thunder showers. . .
Ah! I love a summer rain.
Of course when it doesn't rain on a fun outdoor party.
I leave my house decorated in the 
Red, White, and Blue
In Utah we get another special celebration
July 24th
Pioneer Days!
Celebrating the Pioneers in 1848
Entering the Great Salt Lake Valley.
Seems like we are celebrating all through the month
Of July. .. . And this year was extra special.
 My grandson come home from 
Serving a 2 year Mission
For the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Oh, how very blessed I feel having this precious
Grandson serve honorably on his mission.
He served in the Tampa Florida Mission.
So needless to say we have been celebrating.
Spending time with family is very important to me.
Not much else has changed around my place
Anyway in the line of decorating. . .and 
I did try to change the look of my television cabinet.
Oh, gee! I don't know if I like it or not.
I will leave it for a few weeks and if I am still
Uneasy about the designs I may have to paint over them.
They are just stenciled on, so no big deal to change.
Do you ever do that? Change something. . .then
Wonder if you did the right thing?
In my mind the idea looked great. . ha,ha, ha
In reality. . .Hmmmm, I just don't know!
It was time to change my shelf.
I bought a new one. . .
It has a wider shelf and will be easier to decorate.
Also it has the pegs and bead-board. . .
I really like it.
I don't think I have shown you the 
Granny Square red,white and blue pillow I crocheted.
Love, love the Granny Square.  
Well, things won't change for a few weeks in this room.
By August I will be changing out accessories.
A few changes for late summer will be coming.
I am still working on my tiny backyard.
It got so hot I couldn't do anything.
I hope I have some updates for you.
There is always a project or two going on with me.
I like to keep my hands and my mind busy.
Hope you will come back and visit.
In the mean time stay cool and keep busy.

I am linking with these fine gals. . . . 


  1. I LOVE your granny square pillow. That was one stitch I sat still long enough to learn when my dear Grandma was still with us and how I love all things made with that pattern..beautiful living room display and I think the stencils are you say...can always change it with paint..I do that all the time :)

  2. Nice to see a pic of your living room. It looks so inviting and I love all your personal touches and the granny squares, they are so fun. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
