Disney fun at home...

My family came over for Mother's Day.  Before they came I had some time to take pictures of my newest project.  I made new pads and pillows for the furniture and added some other touches around the back yard.  It's always fun to change things out,  to freshen up the place.

Mickey and Minnie came to my house...
Not really,  but it's fun to dream..

New Bird house...

Refurbished this table and chairs with spray paint
and purchased the checkerboard on Amazon...

The polka dot material was my inspiration...

I hand stitched the "hidden Mickey" on this pad...

I added these hanging flowers,  wish I had done it sooner.
I love them!

Painted the chest.
A great place for the cooler full of drinks.

And what is this thing,  you ask?
It is a wasp deterrent.
It is supposed to keep them away
because they think it is a big nest
and they won't try to move into the territory.
We'll see if it works.  I haven't seen any out there yet!

This is the other end of the yard.

These will be going into the ground tomorrow.

My daughter made these for me last year.
They are for a tippy pot arrangement.
I'll show them when I put it together.

It was my daughter and my granddaughter's birthdays,
at the end of April,
so we celebrated a little late,  but it was fun!
Any excuse for a party!

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Disney Trip...

I took a little trip last week.  
It was a short 3 day visit to DisneyWorld,  
and I was very happy to be there.

Magic Kingdom Castle

These are my relatives that I was with...
Me,  my sister Elaine,
my niece,  Carrie,
my niece,  Brooke
and my nephew,  Richie...


It was the Flower and Garden Festival at Epcot...

Unbelievable beauty everywhere you looked...

The flowers and figures were amazing...

I loved these "Honey Pots"...

"Winnie the Pooh"...

"Lady and the Tramp"...

"Peter Pan"...

"Captain Hook"...



These were all put together with plant materials.

There were many,  many more,  it was so fabulous!

We also went to Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios.  I have lots more pictures,  but I don't want to bore you.
It was a lot of fun and if you get a chance, you should go there.  You can feel like a kid again.

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

A change...

I put my summer bedspread on the bed...

It looks so pretty...

I'm trying to rush Spring.
Although today is about 50 degrees,
 the wind is gusting to 25 mph,
making it feel much colder!
I'll probably have to put the quilt
on top of this tonight.  haha

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Flower and Eggs...

Awww....Easter time...

My daughter gave me this beautiful hyacinth for Easter.
It's fragrance is so strong and so beautiful.
It is filling my workroom with the most delightful smell.
I love it!

My little great grandson with the eggs that
he found in my backyard.
 He caught on quickly,
loved finding them, and did a good job!

Our Easter was a wonderful day,
filled with love,  laughter,  and fun!
I hope yours was, too!

'Til next time,
Love ya,  Jean

Something new...(to me)

I thought I'd try something new,  to me...
I found this bunny on line but it was too big,  
so I redrew it and this is what I ended up with...
Bunny Applique...

This is the finished quilt...

I added 5 bunnies to the quilt...

All different calico prints...

I like how it came out!

'Til next time,

Love ya,  Jean
