My hubby sat out a trap for our UNwanted guest Mr. Groundhog that I shared about on Wednesday.  We sat out the trap around 5:00 p.m. and when we came back at 8.00p.m. he was residing in the trap.  We served him brocolli spears (they really like that). 

Today when my hubby went to mow some land outside of the city about 1 hr (country) he released him into a new home. Hope he can find a better place to live-lots of woods preferably.

Have a super evening.


Tag Tuesday

Tag Tuesday this week over @http/ is FACES.

I used a maiden with a forlorn look upon her face.  I used an image from the internet and embossed green and  purple flowers. Used a green brad with purple ribbon and added a yellow silk flower at the bottom.

I did not realize how hard it would be to get the picture clear enough with the glare from the embossed flowers, hope you can see well enough.
Have a fun week

Outdoor Wednesday

Today I'm linking with Susan
for Outdoor Wednesday.

We have an UNwelcomed visitor in our yard. I snapped this picture of him a few minuetes ago.
I believe this is the first groundhog we've had in our yard.  They are adorable in childrens stories and movies but in person----I think they are pretty destructive.

I read today that they can burrow holes 5 deep and 46 feet long.  WHOA- Our telephone lines run right where he's standing right now.

We're setting a trap to catch him and relocate him to a more suitable neighboorhood. (The woods)

He is living under our garden shed and we don't know if he is alone or has an entire family under there.

Hopefully you have a great day!

Blue Monday - Fun at the Theatre

Today is Blue Monday. What does Sally have to show us all blue lovers?

Yesterday evening my Hubby and I went to a dinner playhouse here in Kansas City.  The New Theatre is a wonderful venue.  Showing now is "Buddy" The Buddy Holly Story.  We both really enjoy listening to music from the 1950's.  My hubby remembers watching him at the time more than I do. The actor and singer who portrayed him was fantastic----looking just like him and his voice was phenomenol. They had actors also portraying the "Big Bopper" and "Jimmy Valance". It was so much fun and the food is great too.
Have a great Monday and a super week.

Joining Beverly for Pink Saturday today. I'm ready to look at all those "pinkalicious" posts.

How many of us "pinkies" wished they could be a princess for a day?  I've always dreamed of wearing the full pink gown along with a tierra and a wand to make all of those wishes come true.

I grew up watching Cinderella and wished I could be her.
Wearing that special shoe that fit perfectly

When I grew up  another "cinderella story" came along, this one for grown-ups and I have enjoyed watching Richard Gene save the damsel in distress-Julia Roberts.

And now for a real-life Princess.  This was taken several years ago, my Granddaughter Sophie being a princess.
Hope all your Dreams come true.

Outdoor Wednesday

Linking up with Susan for Outdoor Wednesday.

Over the 4th of July weekend, we watched a fireworks display over a lake.  We all sat on a pontoon and took pictures with all of our cameras.  Well my camera is not a real elaborate one, so the pics I got I couldn't zoom to close.  But the images turned out pretty cool though.
I love the reflections on the water.
Have a great Outdoor Wednesday today, I probably won't stay outside too much, our heat index is supposed to be 110 degrees.



I'm joining Louise for this fun challenge.

Todays challenge was hearts. 

Have a great crafting day.

Today I finished a collage and attached it to an old clipboard that I just about tossed out. 

This is my Mom and Dads wedding picture.  I'm just experimenting on this type of art, but I really liked the way it turned out.

Happy Tuesday

Vintage Thingie Thursday-Calendars of Yesteryear

Suzanne @ is our hostess for this fun event. I love seeing what everyone has.

Today I have some vintage calendar pictures to share. My Grandma Jewell kept lots of calendars from years gone by.  I have several of hers. She would often keep the months of her familys births.

If you enlarge you can see what she wrote on each one.This morning we went to Cracker Barrell and I spotted this calendar on the wall. This was the year of my birth so I needed a picture.  Ofcourse being a blogger I had my camera.  When I went to the spot to take the picture, the little couple had to scoot back and I think maybe they thought I was a little "nuts". Aren't we all.
Have a super day.

Outdoor Wednesday - Gourds

I've been away a few days for the holiday so I'm happy to be blogging again.  What does Susan have @ for us all to oooh and aaaah over?

This is the first year that I have planted gourds.  Hopefully I will have several types of gourds to decorate my fall tables and to dry and make birdhouses.  I've read a lot on growing them and they need lots of space to grow upward-I planted them all against the fence so they can be tied as they grow.   They have the prettiest yellow flowers.Hopefully this fall, this is what I will have-

Our neighbors to the back of us have around seven of these bushes growing along the back of their yard.
. It's nice to have such a lovely border.
Hope you all enjoy the rest of the week-keep gardening!!
