I have been busy, busy working on a commissioned Wedding Vertical Paper Bag album! I will share some pictures when it is completed! But our Grandson's birthday is this weekend so I had to make a birthday card to celebrate his special day. We are headed to the island to help him celebrate! We went to the Despicable Me 2 movie this summer and I heard him laugh out load during the movie, so I know he loved it! This is another Tri-fold card that is so easy to make! I used a bunch of dies to make the little minions. The sentiment makes me laugh but he really is "One in a Minion"!
I hadn't shared any pictures of my porch this summer, at least I don't think I have...Since September is here and fall is just around the corner- I thought I would show you our porch! I bought some tea cups at the flea market this summer and planted a few succulents in them. The hat was my Mother-law's hat. I love seeing it hanging there- it reminds me of her when ever I pass by it. My Dad made the wooden tool box. He died a few years ago and it too reminds me of him. Loving memories of both my Dad and Queenie.
I put out the rug and chairs every year but this year we really seemed to use the chairs more often. We sat out many nights and watched the moon. I love rocking in them during the day in the warm sun. It really is a wonderful porch!
I love the baby carriage in the picture above too! This year the flowers I planted did really well. You never know how the plants will do since this porch doesn't get sun all day. The plants below are in the corner and don't get much sun at all. I think they are called New Guinea Impatiens. We had lots of flowers this summer on these plants. They seem to know fall is coming and have stopped blooming so much. The pump at the top was from a flea market too! Speaking of flea markets- I am headed today with my sisters to Brimfield!!! I can't wait! I will post a few pictures of our adventure at the biggest flea market of all!! Hope you all have a fabulous day!!
