Blueberry goodness...

It all began with picking fresh blueberries! From there, we washed them, mashed them, & cooked them up {my husband did the cooking part}, filled the jars, baked the jars and jam to seal them...

...and voila!! Homemade blueberry/cinnamon jam!! ~Soups,Sauces & More~

Enjoy the berries of summer!

Art inspires art!!

We took a trip to our local art museum today ~ one of our summer bucket list items to do. We had a fabulous time checking out all the exhibits for a few hours, and then hit up an ice cream shop on our way home {yum}!!

When we got home, I just needed to paint!

Here's one of my creations. Then, I had a few other canvases that needed finishing touches, so they got finished as well...

Oops, upside down- I think you get the picture!
Anyway, some are for sale, some are gifts. Can't wait to share them all with others!!
Those of you who live your emails for exciting news! Our barn will be opening soon(August)...see you there!

Another project...

Old windows- love them!! This one came out of our kitchen, and is being recycled!
I had a brainstorm, got out my sander {thanks to my good friend Alyssa, I asked for a sander for Christmas}, polyurethane, and paint...
First, I thought cream would do, then...I saw this blue-
And, voila... I created a memo board for the kitchen, pantry, wherever you think you need to jot notes or a quote!
Here's a better pic, without me in the reflection...

What do you think? It's for sale! And I've got others that are similar!!

How does your garden grow?!

Our garden is finally beginning to take off! I think our cool spring kept our plants from growing quickly, but the sunshine & heat this week is helping them along...
Our wax beans & arugula...

Notice my son's painted rock tucked in there. 
everything is coming along well- which means we'll be enjoying some delicious dinners straight from the garden ( cooked by my husband of course) very soon! 

Enjoy summer, & your garden veggies!!

Ahhhh, summer! in bloom, sprinklers on, reading a good book in the sun...

there's simply more time to enjoy the things you love in the summer.

Flag Day...and my paints!

I thought Flag Day would be an appropriate day to add a flag to our fence.
I started off with my painter's tape, and then counted out my stripes- 13 beginning and ending with red...
Now, I just need to add the stars...not sure yet what I'm going to do or use. I'll post again when this project is truly complete!

Happy weekend!!
