Love it!
A vintage dry sink painted in MMS Milk Paint in Lucketts created the perfect little potting bench!

  Making Choices about Where to spend the Holidays Getting ready to leave North Carolina and two of our grandkids age 4 and 17 months. Heading back to New England where most of our other grandkids live. We missed Christmas with most of them and 3 birthdays [Dec. 24, 26, and 28] by choosing to spend the holiday with our NC grands. It is always so hard to leave but also so difficult to be everywhere and see everyone over the long holiday season.Difficult choices but understanding family. Will it be Thanksgiving in New England and Christmas down South in the future? Don't Know yet. Where did you spend your Holiday??

Vintage Pink Ornament Wreath Knockoff

See how I made my daughter's pink ornament wreath with way better bulbs for a fraction of the price.

Grandkids and Holidays
How are you doing the holidays this year with grand-kids and kids and maybe even caring for your own parents? Let's share here some special times with family and how to teach what matters most to the little ones growing uo so quickly! My 14year old grand-daughter called me the other day to ask if she could invite her friend to Thanksgiving because her friend had moved here from another country and had never experienced that holiday, and my grand told her that our family celebration was the best! I was honored.. Of course I told her  "Always room for one more"

I was getting ready to plant my garlic and cleaning out the raised beds and look what I found? Biggest Turnip I've ever grown! You can tell it is autumn, my deck becomes a wood-shed. #fallgardening

Although I am not a big Halloween Holiday Grandmom, I have been known to take a couple of grands on some fun excursions on Halloween night. We worked together to make these costumes. Wicket is actually a costume I made for my son 27 years ago! Still adorable! Few people know who "Wicket" is anymore which adds to the fun!
What will you do with your grandkids this Halloween? #halloweencostumeideas   #funwithgrandkids
