What to do???

Everyone is gone...either to basketball camp; working far, far away; or honeymooning in Florida. So it's just me & Shadow. Today, Shadow did this: And I whipped up this tote bag from old pillowcases. Lots of fun!! What will I do tomorrow?

The Big White Thing...

Well, Anne asked - and the Big White Thing in the front of the church is... a Big White Thing!!!! It's a canopy of sorts that my niece used at her wedding. We really don't have any good pictures yet of the church. Here are some pics of the canopy during the rehearsal and at the wedding. (Sorry for the poor quality - these are NOT from the photographer!!) Not a whole lot of decorating in the church...some flowers (hydrangeas) on some pew ends, some white petals down both sides of the middle aisle(on either side of where the runner would go), then when the runner was out the flower girl dropped red petals. Also some bouquets of white hydrangea-like flowers in the front.

Well, last week I went with him to this fabulous place and here is what I found!!

This bed frame must be from the 30's or 40's. I also have the rails - in case I decide to bring it inside!!! I am going to have to hold myself back...we don't have enough room for both of us to frequent this place!!!!
