I LOVE THIS

 
My new shelf in the bathroom.
I did see this idea on Pinterest quite some months ago.
Mr Nook put this up for me.
I do have a few more items on it since the picture was taken.
I just love it.
Thanks for stopping by.

RECIPE MINI ALBUM REVISITED

 
I thought I would share this mini paper bag album from several years ago.
I wanted to share something artsy with you since I have not been in my craft space in awhile.
I do love to create paper bag albums...
A great percentage of the paper you see here is original right from a box lot of very old recipes and papers found in a barn at a yard sale.  I can't remember when I found this, several years ago now.
Some of the paper is copies of things from the internet and my stash.

 
This is the front.



 
I have tons of things stuck in every nook & cranny, ha!!





This album was given to my swap partner when finished, she loved it...



I just loved using the image of the ball jars, I LOVE ball jars.  I thought it would be a wonderful space to write a recipe on.



I hope you enjoyed going down memory lane with me.  For those that are new to my blog and have not seen this in the past,  I hope you enjoyed it as well.  If you have not created a mini paper bag album you should give it a try, loads of fun I say.
You tube will have tons of videos for you to follow on this.
Thanks to all for stopping by.

ANOTHER VISIT TO MAINE

Mr. Nook, Cindy, Carl and I took another trip to Maine on Mother's Day weekend.
You know Mr. Nook and I love, love Maine so we thought we would bring Cindy and Carl to some of our favorite spots.
We stayed again at The Beach House Inn in Kennebunk, we just love it there.
The first morning it was very foggy, here is the view during coffee.
 
 
 York Long Beach, our most favorite spot.

 
Our second morning cup of coffee.


 
My favorite Aunt on the whole planet.
 
 
A little late day snack...

Thanks for stopping by.

FOR THE LOVE OF PINK

I wanted to share with you  my "For the love of pink" Pinterest Board.
Who doesn't love pink, just a little bit??
I am really not that much of a pinky girl, nothing in my house is pink except when you step into my craft room.  My house is a log cabin and is themed Adirondack/nature with a bit of antique/farm style, while my craft room has pink this and that, sparkles, flowers, butterflies, vintage this and that and more.  My craft room is my girly girl space.
Kinda weird I know.
Enjoy

Thanks for stopping by and have a pinky day if that is what you love.

SUMMER PORCH

Waiting for a tad bit warmer weather and the pollen to be done landing on every thing, I finally got out and prepared our porch for the summer.



 
 
Once I get done all of the cleaning the fun really begins.....
I love to rearrange things from the year before, I never get tired of this.
 

Thanks for stopping by.

SUCCULENT CREATIONS AND SORRY TO BE GONE SO LONG

To all of my readers, I am sorry to have been gone for so long.
I have started a new job, this has taken up a lot of my time.  I am getting more and more into the grove of it all and hope to get back to creating come late summer/early fall.
I look forward to the Halloween season and some good swaps, you all know I love a good swap.
In the meantime I would love to share with you my new succulent plant creations.




Here are my lobster fishing/trapping treasures I have found on the beaches of Maine, York Beach and Kennebunkport areas.  I have collected these pieces over the last two years and finally wanted to make something with them, this is what I came up with.

 
 
I made use of my vintage minnow bucket.




 
 
This little garden is on my dining room table, I thought it was fitting for the summer season.
These little gardens are addictive for sure.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
