{May Blessings Photo Dump}

June has crept upon us it seems. Y'all, it's six months until Christmas! LOL!  Wanted to share a few of my May blessings.  We have been blessed with fresh potatoes. We've been able to share some with others and still have plenty. My cucumbers, okra and orange tree was destroyed in the tornado that we took a hit from but what a blessing that we pulled the potatoes before the tornado.  Speaking of tornado it's been a job cleaning up the aftermath. God spared our home and us as we were home. Marty and I heard the sound of the tornado and retrieved to our bathtub for safety. The affects surely done a number on our barn, my shed, a pull trailer and oh our property was in a mess. Huge OLD trees gone! Such a mess but we are beginning to see the light at the end of tunnel with the cleanup. We have been so blessed with our children and friends that have come to help us. God surely had a hedge of protection around us.  Our oldest granddaughter Raygen graduation from College as Su

Hiding the Ugly Hot Water Heater

 I shared that I wanted to hide my ugly hot water heater in my laundry room with you a few weeks ago.


It just stuck out like a sore thumb. But after all it is a hot water heater right?



So my man took a piece of wood (not real wood) but it worked and built a frame for me.

So now to see if it would fit and it did.



I painted it white and did not like the texture it had even after two coats of white. (rule of thumb...you get what you pay for and the wood was cheap) But I wasn't going to let it whip me!



 Found some contact paper at Walmart in the gray and white.



Covered the front with the contact paper and loved the look.



The top was covered with a piece of painted wood as well and worked perfect to place this on top...

And this....



Added a clothes basket in the corner and here was the top....




Yep, no longer an eye sore to me! Went perfect with my gray walls and gray and white floor.



Remember the wood tray I bought at a yard sale and showed you last week?



I painted it white and then went back and distressed it a little. Worked out perfect on the top of my dryer to hold a couple of cuties.



One more thing I must show you today with my laundry room makeover. I originally saw this on Pinterest. So, I designed my own in Photoshop, printed it to place in a frame that I had sprayed painted yellow! Love how it turned out. Remember the song by Kenny Rogers..."you gotta know when to hold em".



Okay, I promise this is the last thing I will show you today....I found this adorable rug for my laundry room at Lowe's.



Will show you my cabinet re-do next time....Ooh, I got such cute things to put on the shelf.....



Happy Tuesday!


Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Oh my goodness, Cindy! You are just such a creative person...you look at the ugly and see beautiful and then you go to work on bringing it about! There must be a "sermonette" in that somewhere. But I have to say that I LOVE that area of your laundry room...and the rug is super cute, too! Looking forward to seeing what you've done with the cabinet!

{SON-Flowers}

Don't you just love sunflowers? When I think about sunflowers I think of two things. My motherinlove who loved sunflowers and Fall. I came across a devotional written by Julia Bettencourt on sunflowers and thought it so appropriate for today as I wanted to share my sunflowers with you. Here's a few lessons we can learn from the sunflower.    Sunflowers Track The Sun.   Most plants are attracted to light but the flowering head of the sunflower actually tracks the sun following it's path and moving toward where it is in the sky all during the day. I read somewhere that sunflowers track the sun when they are in bud stage. Isn't that how it usually goes for us as Christians? When we first come to know the Lord, we get excited about knowing all about Him and living for Him, but after awhile we sometimes grow a little preoccupied with other things and get our eyes off of the Lord.   Wouldn't it be great if as a Christian we'd track th

{Happy 46th Wedding Anniversary To Us}

  Happy October everyone! I wanted to pop in today and share a few pictures. Marty and I celebrated our 46th wedding anniversary on September 23.  Oh it seems so long ago that we said "I Do". We started dating when I was 16. Married at 18 and began a family at 20. Needless to say we have surely grown up together. Praise the Lord that we are growing "Older" together.  We decided since it had been about 8-9 years since we had been to Savannah, Ga. that we would take a weekend there and just enjoy a scenic luncheon cruise.  We enjoyed walking River street and sightseeing, shopping and eating of course! It was a nice get away and perfect for us as we are simply two imperfect people that fit perfectly together.  I did spot Santa while in Savannah though! YES, I love Christmas so I had to stop at several Christmas shops! We've had outings that have kept us quite busy and we have surely been blessed to be able to attend our grands functions and our little outings toget
