Summer Flowers

Good rainy, Wednesday morning.
While I am getting a little tired of all the rain that we have had lately, my flower garden is loving it.I
I love the bright, vibrant colors of these tiger lillies.
Painted daisies.

Please keep our family in your prayers as my uncle was killed in a tragic tractor accident yesterday in WV. He leaves behind a wife of 40 years, 3 daughters, and 1 very devoted grandson.

Friday Show and Tell!

TGIF! Seems like the only time I am posting anymore is on Friday Show and Tell, but I have been so busy with crafting, cooking, gardening and just having summer fun!

Week before last I showed you some vintage patterns that I had bought at an estate sale. Today I am showing you a couple of the things that I have made from my patterns.
Here is my vintage Midge wearing the evening gown shown in the lower right corner of the pattern. I love how it turned out, but I'm thinking its needs "something" but I'm not sure what. Any suggestions? I love these patriotic angels! This pattern came from one of the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas books. Of course their angels were Christmas angels, but I thought wouldn't patriotic angels be cool for Independence Day! I have 6 more ready to be cut out. I can see Halloween angels, Thanksgiving angels, pink angels, etc... See the pretty lacy trim on the bottom of their dresses? I bought a HUGE bag (like a comforter comes in) at the Goodwill for $2.00! I get so excited over a good deal.
We are headed to Lexington, NC this weekend to watch some boat racing.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
