What to do when there are three birthdays so close together? Why….Have one big party of course  and that is what we did. Going out in the boondocks to Lovern’s Arena ( North of  Philadelphia, Ms.)

 

we had us a party to put all partys to shame. ( I’m so glad this grandma didn’t get lost because some others did. lol)

The three oldest grands invited their friends, and family too, to ride the bull, catch a chicken and a little pig before taking a horse ride around the arena and finishing up with a buckwagon ride around the countryside.

 

 

By special request this grand ma made the outfits for the day. GT got a new pair of chaps and the girls, EA andAM, each got cowgirl skirts and a vest. Cutest little cowpokes out there.

Friends coming to share their special day was a blessing. I think everyone had a grand time at the arena.

On a crafty note…the road out to the arena was just beautiful with Blackeyed Susans and Queen Anns Lace wild flowers on both sides of the road. So…Thanks for stopping by. Until next time…..This is the Lords day….Rejoice.DSCN2157

Winter Gardening

It is so cold outside. Nine ((9)degrees this morning and while this isn’t as cold as up North it is plenty cold for the South. Here in Mississippi we just can’t function in cold and snow that turns to slick ice. I am fortunate enough not to have to travel any further than the mail box at the end of the drive or down the hill ( which I haven’t attempted yet) to check on the other generation ( my parents).

So while it is attempting to warm up a bit my gardening is indoors with paper crafting. My order fron Elizabeth Craft came in and oh goodness it was full of such fun stuff. This just doesn’t get any better. Well ….my attempt will get better but I mean the designs from Susans’s Garden. She is so precise in her rendition of all these flowers. Susan has a real love for getting it right. It has been fun.

First off…A good friend has a birthday coming up so this was made in her honor.DSCN2078

Back to Watercolor

Some of my blogging friends are doing so darn well with this watercolor challenge it is kinda discouraging for me who hasn’t done much of this in so very long. Goodness…I haven’t even dared go to the link and see what the world is doing. So I just stay kinda safe and stick to my cards. There has been a jump out every day or so but …..at my age I’m just not very adventuresome. But I will share a couple of cards. I’m still trying to get to the point where I can ‘open’ a shop and sell I just have so many questions. Any way…my mother has abirthday coming up . She will be 94 if I dare say. Never have understood why women are so sensitive about their age. The alternitive is to not have an age for peats sake. This should count as watercolor I think.DSCN1886Well they are backwards but so goes it.
