I had a busy weekend. My birthday was Saturday and Mother's Day was Sunday. DH took me to do a little Flea Market shopping Saturday.

I got these item to make into some Prim Things. The ticket on the two bells said Cow Bells, but I think they may be Goat Bells. They are not big. I have plans to needle punch something for the top of them. I have pin cushion plans for the funnel. The two mashers I have ideas to needle punch something for the top of them.  The scales I just got because the prices were real great. I love the beige scale with Sears on it. I will keep it in the sewing room. The Blue Ribbon Scale has a lot of rust, but I love the patina. I may use it to hold a bird nest. I plan to put on my old library desk.
We also had Ballgame Day Saturday.  Tournaments started for Josh.

The pictures are blurry because it had rained all night before and morning. The sun came out and it turned HOT.  We laugh at Josh because when he runs he's watching his feet. I will just say he trips a lot and leave it at that.. 

 That's his dad 3rd base coach. He is telling him to run to home plate.  Next game is Friday night. The weather channel says our temps will be in the 40's Friday night.. What we will freeze!  lol

Then, Sunday arrived!  Mother's Day! Happy Belated Mother's Day!  My Dear SIL had a get together at their house. Brother grilled and the pool was available for a swim. Yes, It is warm enough in May for The Grands to swim.

 Frog Boy AKA Josh had a great time in the pool. He has lost about 4 teeth in the last 2 months. Hubby says he looks like a Jack - O -Lantern!  lol  Zoe didn't like the pool. It was over her head and she wanted to do something else!

 My brother brought out the golf cart and she took off running to get in!  That is more her speed. That is my brother with her. I have a story about this Golf Cart....

My dad bought this cart when our Daughter was 12. It was blue and not jacked up. For years we used it camping. Raeanne grew up with it. She drove it before she had a car. She and her friends drove it all over the campgrounds. It even had a radio in it! Only Grandchild at the time. We had to charge those batteries every night.  lol
Raeanne turned 16 got a car and that was the end of cart driving....
My dad decided he wanted it painted yellow and lifted. My parents by then had a place up on the backwater and it was rode a lot by my parents and Sadie (the dog).  Then my dad had a massive heart attack and passed away.  SIL was pregnant with grandchild #2. One month later Hannah was born. My mom passed Golf Cart to Hannah. So I call the picture above - Golf Cart Generation #2. Hannah is driving, Zoe is in the middle, and Josh is showing out! Raeanne started out driving this cart and now her children are riding in it. I hope one day, when Hannah gets her car, that it will come back full circle to Raeanne for her kids to enjoy for years to come.
So that was my weekend!  I have a great weekend coming up with my stitching friend, Terri. ( Dixie Samplar ). My first Stitch In!!
Till Later.....

 Hello Friends and Family!!  I have not been blogging lately. I did finish my model stitching for Brenda. I will not be able to show a picture till she releases it. I loved the colors, as always! 
My shoulder is still hurting. and now... the Stink Shrub (Sweet Shrub) has came out in full force! I walk outside and get a headache instantly. I have been house bound and I'm an outside person!
 These are some Knock Out Roses that hubby saved from a school. He tries to save plants that they have to dig up to renovate the buildings. I guess you could call it re-greening. 

 Some are not coming back out. When he brought them home they were over 6 feet high and big bushes. He brought them home in a dump truck. The landscape guy told us we could cut them back half way, really water a lot and hope they come back. Well... Some did and some didn't make it.

 This is a picture of all the new that is coming out on the ones I thought were goners. I guess they are slow because some are blooming. I will leave them as they are, till fall and see who is still with us and who didn't make it.

That is the dump truck in the background they came to their new home in. They were as tall as the sides. My little rose garden needs some help. That rose bush in the front runs all over the ground if I let it.. I try to keep is bushy. It was here before we were. I need to get my Rose feed out and read it. I'm not a rose person, hubby is.  I try to plant things he likes too.
My timber post you can see some of, in the front of the picture. I hang 2 hanging baskets on it and then I put pots in the pot holders.
I'm a little behind this year.
Hope to blog again in a couple of days. Till Later.....
