I'm still here... but I confess:

I've been a hooking fool and in between that working on a little
Kitchen updating and fluffing!  Not sure where August has disappeared to!

I'll be back with a real post soon....
until then:

I love that we named our old Victorian
27 years ago when we moved in.
She's lavender and she's on a hill....
'nuff said.

I hand painted the mailbox about 20 years ago:

And a couple of Summer's ago I made a sign for
the guest house:

But I wanted something more to
brand our Painted Lady!

Over the winter one of the teak benches in the boys shower collapsed.
So, I unscrewed the remaining legs and put aside
the slatted bench while I hatched a plan:

I got a "sample" pot of dark lavender paint and
had wooden letters cut at an online site.
A couple of coats of paint and some wood glue later:

Doesn't everyone dry their crafts on the 
recumbent bike in their home gym?

I love the way it looks hanging over the
porch steps:

Just this afternoon a sweet girl messaged
me that she could see the sign as she was driving by - 
totally made my day!

More Patio Fluff 'n Stuff

We've had a ton of rain lately, but this past weekend was sunny and gorgeous!

I took the opportunity to fluff up some more of our patio living space:

Great spot for a fire and some marshmallows!

Pink and Purple make everything happy!

The Gazebo is right across the patio:

Always need comfy spot to snuggle in the afternoon
 out back beyond the pool !

My old lawn swing is still going strong!
Mommy bought it for me for my 30th bday...
cough::cough:: 22 years ago ::cough::cough!

Lots of HOOKING going on!

I've got a ton of hooky goodness ready to list in my shop... 
I am bound and determined to make a go of it!  
I love hooking and I know people love cuddling with cozy stinkers 
and soft, squishy pillows... 
and who doesn't love a cheerful hooky banner, after all?!?

I'm trying to figure out if the Etsy shop is working out
since I tend to get most of my sales from FB, Instagram or HERE!

Pillow tops are ready to stuff:

And I've got a few new Stinkers finished -

including a lovely special order that is ready for 
its new home:

Which ever way you see the cozy fun,
Just message me and I'll be happy to 
"Hook" you up!

see where I went with that?
