Magnificen Monday!! The post of all things (I think) promised to post pics of! :D

Today is Magnificent Monday for me...
the reason... I am getting to catch up on some
much needed blogging!! And first of all I would
like to beg to apologize to Trudy from
Crows in the Attic Primitives!
I won her book giveaway before Christmas,
I put the book under my Christmas tree,
decided I would wait til Christmas morning to
open it... long story short...it got lost...
(grandson brought it to me to open...
got put into trash bag of wrapping paper by one
of the females in the house...Four of us...) I looked
everywhere... went to trash barrels outside... morning
of trash day... (with gloves on) and went through the bags...
YEAH I FOUND IT!! So I took pics, life got out of hand...
I forgot to post it soooo here it is!!

I would like to take this time to really
thank Trudy for her generous gift!!

Here is my gift... Debbie Macombers
book Christmas letters!! I have since
read it... LOVED IT!!! My daughters
are now reading it. Thanks again,
Trudy dear. (Sorry so long getting it posted!)

Here is my gift to my hubby for our anniversary...
another picture due from past post!!
For those that didn't read it...
we celebrated 25 years...
I made him this sign...

hung it above the kitchen/livingroom
doorway... His reply when he opened it...
was "As long as my knees hold out!" :D
I got this idea where to hang the sign
from Shanda at
on a post of hers about dancing in the
kitchen with her husband. I would like to
thank her very much for the memories
to come for us... we have danced
in the kitchen many times since
I hung this sign! Thanks Shanda!!

Here is a sign I made at the same time
which hangs just inside the front door
where it can be seen as soon as you enter.
I had it hung outside the door... but for
some reason I just wasn't quite comfortable
leaving it there, so it came into the house.

And here is the picture I painted that
I promised in the last post to post
a picture of... this is an up close
pic, it really isn't that big.
But boy there is some satisfaction
in knowing I finally painted a picture
that looks like it is supposed too...
after all those years of schooling...
and I finally get it right with the help
of my best friend Ali!! :D THANKS ALI!!!

this is how big it actually is...
not as big as I would like to have
it now that it is done... but when
I started to paint it... it was too big!!
If you know what I mean!?? lol

Well I hope you all enjoyed my catch up
post... sorry it took so long to get on the
stick and get it done. But now I can say
I am glad I finally got some lose ends tied
up! I hope you all have a wonderfully blessed
day! And thank you for sharing that beautiful
day with me! :D

Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away.
A sense of humor can help you tolerate the unpleasant,
cope with the unexpected & smile through the day.
There is one happiness in life to love & be loved!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed day!!

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!

Debi, You are a fantastic painter, who knew!! I love the dance sign yoiu painted and it also makes me very happy to think that you thought of me. That is very swet and touching. Here's to you and your husband dancing in the kitchen for many many more years. I am looking forward to some pics of things your husband has done with some of the doors. I need some ideas and inspiration.

I really love the picture you painted....you are one talented lady. I would hate to see what a picture I tried to paint would look like.
