I get so many ideas from blogs and magazines and books I just want to  I want to try everything! Loved the way this turned out!

My friend Sue and her husband gave me these landscape bricks. It was just what I needed to spur me on fixing up the back garden! Great Grandson Eli loves to help! He and his Momma have moved back and are living in The Cottage for now.

It's sharing bouquets of Zinnia time again.

We all love our back porch!

My cousin reunion was here at out house on July 4th. I surprised each of my cousins with a painting. This was a painting of my cousin Janell's roses.

This was for cousin Donna who has a large collection of snowmen.

This was for cousin Betty who is almost ready to retire and loves making  quilts.

This was cousin David's who was an All Star Football player in High School and College!

This was sister Judy's who has a collection of Crosses. And has more of my paintings than she probably wants!

The month of July is full of family birthdays! This is out youngest son John who would have been  54 on the 7th. Often wonder what his life would be like now if he were still living!   Hope you are enjoying your summer! We are having lots of grand kids visiting!
