Tuesday Toots

Lots of "Toots" today.....Feeling a little blessed I guess you could say.

When I can I join Jann over at "Have a daily cup of Mrs. Olsen"  for her blog party called, Share your Cup. This party is for anything that makes you happy that you'd like to share. I had recently shared my Banana pepper rings and guess what? I was featured on her blog! Hop over to see the features http://jannolson.blogspot.com/2014/07/share-your-cup-thursday-109.html
I even got a feature button for my blog! Thanks Jann for the feature! I love Jann's parties.

 Here was my featured peppers! And here is my cute little featured button...

Whipped up a cute little dress for one of the grandgirls. Simple but adorable.

Cute little black and white dress with a little eyelet ruffle. I love how the top ties on the shoulders.

The little white flower can be used to pin on the dress or as a hair bow. Looked really cute pinned in the front with the white satin tie.

Decided to get another flower that could be for pinning on the dress or for her hair. Got black...she can interchange them out or use with other outfits.

She is going to look adorable in her black and white summer dress.
 After I got the pictures made of the little dress and posted I realized I had the dress crooked on the hanger! Oh well......
Got to share my Amish bread with you. (Well not to eat though) LOL! 

A friend of mine from church recently took a little vacation and visited the Amish country! First of all her pictures made me want to PACK up right then and join her! 

She was so sweet and brought me back some fresh bread....I loved the little gift bags the bread was in....Aren't the little birdies just the cutest?

In one bag was Banana nut...2 small loaves.

 In the other bag was Cinnamon...OH MY! I just want to lick the icing off the top so no one else will want to eat it! LOL!

 Yeah, I felt pretty special....

I recently had a short little getaway with my man. We rode the 4 wheeler on some leased hunting land that we deer hunt on, spotted a beautiful deer grazing on the green, went out to eat, shopped a little and well, just had some quiet time with each other! Ya know us old married people need to do this sort of thing from time to time. It sort of takes your focus off the every day hustle of life and allows you to focus on a little fun. 

But when I spotted deer tracks my ole heart went to humming! About time to get my bow out and practice girls. 

Well enough "tooting" for today. So I will leave you with this....starting on my blue, white, and silver tablescape. 4th of July has come and gone so now onto another pretty tablescape. Have got my tree done though...sneak peak....

 White tree, blue satin ribbon, blue and white coffee cups and tea bags! YEPPERS! It is all coming together...

Hope to show you my tablescape soon! 

Have a good Tuesday and be sure to tune in tomorrow for Wednesday in the Word....

Hugs and blessings, Cindy 



  1. I don't see how you work full-time and do all the extras, too. You're a good woman!!! That dress is just adorable! If you want to mail a loaf of that bread to Tennessee, that would be great!! ;-) HOPE you have an awesome day!

  2. Love your toots! The dress is too cute. I can't wait to see your tablescape especially if it matches the tree! I would love a piece of that bread right now too girl. Cindy, I have always wanted to bow hunt but never tried it!

  3. I'm glad you and your hubby had a good time away. It really is essential!

    I love the little black and white dress you made for one of your grands. My favorite part? Can't decide! I think the ties on the shoulders and the eyelet on the bottom are running neck in neck for first place! ~smile~

    Your banana peppers look yummy...and congratulations on being featured on the blog!

    You have a thoughtful friend...those breads look SO yummy!

    Have a wonderful Tuesday, Cindy!


  4. Cindy,
    Thanks so much for always stopping by!!
    Glad you liked the comment about having an S on my chest for Sucker. It also means Stupid too!! LOL!!

    There is a Quick Mart about 5 minutes down the road from us and every Friday in the Summer, the Amish come and set up several stands of produce and baked goods and their banana bread is to die for!!

    Love that sweet dress and I LOVE your tree!! You know me with trees!! I am thinking of changing my Patriotic tree over to a beach tree.... If time allows.....


  5. Dress looks very beautiful. Your grand kid is lucky to have a one.

  6. That little dress is adorable! What pattern did you use? I'd love to get busy and start making some dresses for my little grandgirls. It's been a long time since I had small granddaughters and I wouldn't dream of making my teenage and pre-teen granddaughters any clothes these days! :)


So glad you stopped by to visit.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
