Kitchen Patio Makeover....2010

After a really hard winter, I decided it was time to makeover my kitchen patio. This patio once had a bistro table and chairs and more than a dozen unbelievably gorgeous cactus. Here's were the hard winter comes in...I lost the majority of them and the ones I didn't loss look horrible. So I decided to change things up a little....

Bought a new lounge set, planted herbs, tomatoes and strawberries and lastly made some new cushions and pillows. I'm pretty happy with it! Now we find ourselves out on the patio much more then we ever did!!!

Even Olive and Scout approve of the makeover!!

Ohhhh Tooth Fairy!!!

Maddie lost her first tooth today. She couldn't be more proud! After the torture of being the only one who hasn't lost a tooth, the day has finally come and she is about telling anyone who will stand still long enough to hear it.

Rain, rain go away....or not!!

With all the rain we've been having I decided to make Maddie a rain coat out of some absolutely fabulous fabric. It's made out of Michael Miller Laminate and lined with with 100% woven. I used a swing coat pattern from my all time favorite Whole Grain Baby.

We wore it yesterday and what a show stopper! Even men were commenting on how pretty Miss Thang looked in her rain coat. The best part of it was Maddie would smile, thank them for their compliments and say, "My momma made it, she a very good sewer!"

Maddie's BIG girl room is coming together...FINALLY!

The paintings for Maddie's "BIG GIRL" room finally finished. I put these whimsical mermaids on canvas rather then the walls. I thought about it and decided it would be a shame to eventually have to paint over these on canvas they went. Maddie thinks her mom has hung the moon and wants me to teach her how to be an artist. With that the hours of work were worth it!!

The 10 Day Green Smoothie Challenge.

This is the 10th day of the Green Smoothie challenge and I FEEL GREAT! I was skeptical when I stumbled on to this challenge on the Organic Living and Lifestyle Blog. First who can drink spinach and second how can this change the way you feel? Well you can drink spinach and it totally changes the way you feel. Surprisingly it really made me conscious of what I'm eating the rest of the day. I give the green smoothie 2 thumbs up!! Give it a try!!!
