"As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, and its place acknowledges it no longer.
But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him..."
~Psalm 103:15-17a

New from Old

In cleaning up my room in preparation for a new house guest who will be staying with us while she attends Purdue, I came across this gem:



Sally, do you remember making that?  :)  Well, I decided that while I needed it for hanging up hats and such, it needed a bit of work first.  So I took out the pegs (which were originally blue, by the way...and also glued in...) and spray painted them with some leftover spray paint (from VBS last year maybe?).  Then I took some scrap fabric and stapled it on the board.  Once the pegs were dried, I cut little notches in the fabric where the original holes were and stuck the pegs back in.  Result?  A cute little coat/hat rack that cost me nothing but time and energy. :)





(Sorry about the last picture, but I'm not sure how to rotate it...)

Summertime!

Yes, it's summertime here in Indiana.  Heat.  Humidity.  Thunderstorms.  Lots of garden produce.  Extra time to spend with family and friends.  Fireflies.  Grilling.  (Of course, sometimes we do that in the winter, too...)  The almost constant buzz of cicadas.  Sunshine.  What more could you want?
