Summer's End


Well Girl's I've been terrible for blogging lately. Summer has just been so busy. It's been sooo hot here I'm pretty sure we've hit a record.The garden didn't do good with the heat and lack of rain.But the next few days are supposed to cool down.I of course always look forward to Fall.Made some bowl fillers today in anticipation...smile...Our sale for the town's Good Ole Days was a big success. I sold everything except about 3 boxes(which my brother came and took).We used the money to buy hubby a new oversize chair and spruce up some things that needed done around the house which never fits in the budget. Most people said they've never been to a sale with so much good stuff. I'm just glad to be rid of it. I've been feeling a little like the need to let go of things and just be simple. Yes I know it will pass..LoL.But we did go to a field auction today and I only bought a wood bucket so I did good.. My sister is getting married in November. I've lost alot of weight ( 57 lbs) so excited to go dress shopping. She is getting married on Grandma's birthday.Nothing real exciting happening just general life. Hope you all enjoy your Labor Day. I'll get the Fall swap posted Tuesday for the girls waiting.Just wanted to stop in and say Hi! ~Amy

Farmhouse Summer Swap with Sandi

Such a busy week. We have been getting ready for our towns annual event. The whole town has yard sale and a big flea market. We set up 3 days and it is so much work getting ready.Especially since we've been so HOT a week of 100 degrees. Ready for Fall...smile...Wanted to thank my sweet friend Sandi for the lovely gifts she sent for our swap...

Love this wax bee on honeycomb. I'm making some fall fixins and will be using this as the center..
Here is what I did with the wood pieces she sent.. Ignore the clutter like I said been preparing for sale..  Will be moving this to the porch.....
Thank you Sandi for everything. You can see what I sent her here http://theprimitiveskate.blogspot.com/2016/08/farmhouse-summer-swap.html  You'll giggle when you see how much alike we think... Fall swap sign up will be the end of the month. Also want to get on and just chit chat soon.I miss my friends...smile..~Amy
