TGIF!!









HANNAH MONTANA AND GREEN GRASS....
Great combination, eh?
Today I have a couple of things I want to share...I have been working on a small project for youngest DD, who will have a Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus based room. I made her a lamp shade. I took a plain shade, covered it in photos, put a sparkley glaze over it, a finish, and some pink fuzzy yarn and a beaded fringe..and voila! I like it, so does she....now I need to find her a lamp to put it on!! Wouldn't you know it....I was clearing out the storage closet a few weeks ago and donated two end lamps that I had many years ago...one of those would have been perfect! I will check a couple of thrift stores before I actually look in Wal-mart....I know she wants to make it her own style, so I'd like a cheap second hand one that we can fool around with.


The second thing I want to share today is photos of our back yard! At the end of last summer, this yard was full of trees and overgrown brush. We had basically not done anything with the land....anyways, we had a problem with our septic field and were told we had to replace it.....the guy that actually replaced it did this type of work, so we decided to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak, we got him to clear the back yard, except for a few of the nice hardwood trees....around October we planted grass seed, some took, but we replanted seed in the early spring, and this is the result...we are by far not done with the back yard, but it looks so nice now! I took these photos from the deck. Also, I am showing you the basement entrance and the walkway on the side. I am very proud of our house...it is a mobile (mini home) that we had designed for our needs and full basement underneath...it is unique an unusual, and is basically now a 5 bedroom, 3 bath house.....

What a sweet lampshade. I'm sure she will love it! :)

Your backyard is so lovely and green. Do you get much rain?
