I'm Baaaaack In The Saddle Again...

And with a new look too!! Yippee!!

So when you have a minute, scoot on over to my Countryfolk Keepsakes site and have a look around.

I am in the process of workin' on more creations so please check back soon.

Now all I need is a microphone stand with some scarves tied to it.
(Some of you may get that one)

A Sneak Peek...

At one of my offerings for TDIPT Mercantile for August 1st!


I didn't have the heart to tell her, but she could really use some electrolysis and a dental plan.

"There will be a tomorrow...

that exists without me. And I know that. When that day arrives, I want my life to have meant something. I want this world to be brighter. I want this world to be happier. I want people to have smiled more and to have laughed more because I've spent time here. And if I accomplish that, I will look down and I will smile." ~Mike Litman

(I couldn't have said it better myself.)

It Reached 105 Degrees Today...

I wrote this in the snow last March.


I have officially changed my mind. I love snow. I wish it were snowing right now.
:> )

Please don't forget to check on your elderly family members and neighbors. Also, keep those water bowls filled for your furbabies.
Stay cool everyone!

It's So Hot And Humid...

Even Steve the Chipmunk can't take it anymore.

He went to Lowes this afternoon and did some shoppin'.


Remember... Enjoy nature.

Havin' Trouble Seein' My Photos On My Blog...

Unfortunately, before the owner of DIYeStores (who hosted my website) decided to shut down a few remainin' UMI accounts without our knowledge, I was unable to back up my website graphics and all my photos. I no longer have access to them. (Some were of my daddy too.) Sigh.
I can't help but be reminded of a great quote by Robert Schuller. "Tough times never last, but tough people do."

As always, I will keep a positive attitude like I have throughout my life and start anew.

Soon I Will Be...


Folks, my website is no longer through DIYeStores hosting site so please delete it from your favorites. Also don't try to contact me through my email address because I won't get it.

I am in the process of settin' up another site so please bear with me. Until I do, you can see my art or contact me at TDIPT Mercantile.

I promise to be back up and runnin' soon!!
Steve the Chipmunk told me he would help. The problem is, my fingers are too big for his wee keyboard.

Whew!! Phase One Done...

Well, I did it!! I finally finished my Cabinet Transformations! Sure I worked on it 15 hours a day for 6 days and I've gotten hardly any sleep because I've been drinking coffee for those six 15 hour days; but I'm happier than a tick on a hound dog with the outcome!!

Ummm... Please try not to look at my counter tops. They look really bad now, but not for long.


I never thought I would get excited over new cabinet hardware, but I did! Just look at that knob! Feel free to "Ooooh and Ahhhh" just like when you see fireworks."


Well hello there, handsome.


And for my next trick, I will attempt the Countertop Transformations! I wonder if I can take my coffee intravenously?
I'll keep you posted.

P.S. All week Steve the Chipmunk sat on the tree stump, eating Doritos and suckin' down Old Mil, watching through the kitchen window as I worked like a dog.

I Decided To Jump In Head First...

and tackle a few large kitchen projects.

As much as I loved my colonial red cupboards, I thought it was time to lighten 'em up!

I picked up Rustoleum's Cabinet Transformations kit and hit the floor running!


I decided on the color "English Cream." Here's a sample of it...


I also have "samples" of it on my knees, arms, hands and face.

Since I haven't won the lottery or pulled 7 grand in change out of our couch cushions for granite counter tops, I'm going to use Rustoleum's Countertop Transformations.

So I'll be scarce for awhile. But I promise when I'm done, I'll share before and after pics with you.

If interested: Here's the direct link to my Rustoleum Countertop Transformations tutorial.

Oh! And here's an update on Steve the Chipmunk.
Today I saw him run down to the creek in a Speedo carrying an inner tube.

Remember to enjoy nature!

We hold these truths to be self-evident...

that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.


Have fun!! Enjoy!!
Remember to teach the wee ones (and not so wee ones) why we celebrate this grand day!!

There's much more to it than fireworks and cookouts.
