I've waited six months to do this post. Seriously. Two things perpetuated me to do it now. #1- This is the last week of July. If I didn't do it now--then when? Christmas in August? Not so much.
#2- It is so hot here! It has been close to 100 degrees a couple of times. Couple that with our ever present humidity and it is almost unbearable. I had hoped that simply looking at these photos would cool me down. Well, not so much on that, either.
These photos are from a cute Christmas red bird vignette that I (with Jacob's help) did last Christmas. The mini tree has beautiful red birds as does the garland on the top of the dresser. The cute bird house came from the DG (Dollar General). I placed it on a red doily on my Maw Maw Vera's cake plate. The red table runner came from a yardsale. I was so pleased with how it turned out. Just think! I can re-create this in about 4 months.

What is it you ask?
Still don't know?
What about a Dancing Queen diva dance chair? Bedazzled, bejeweled, blinged, BAM!
I think I'm going to devote a special section of this blog to CRAFT PROJECTS GONE WRONG! Remember the pillow?
I leave you with this little gem that I saw last Saturday in Wilmer. If you live in/around Mobile then you understand Wilmer:

I saw this beauty at the Goodwill. Pure harvest gold goodness. This stove was so clean! It looked like it had never been used.
And finally.... I so should have bought this pillow. It was less than $2.00 and had the cutest saying:
I find myself in this seat more often than not. Gossip is a terrible thing but it seems to be one of my favorite hobbies. Lord help me!
