Blog pics
New birdfeeders/houses hubby made for me! Lately there has been no over time for my hubby. So he has a lot of time on his hands! He has only been working 3 days a week. Which has been a nice break for him. He has gotten a lot of stuff finished around the house while I worked.

These are the fence feeders as I call em! We already have a pair of bluebirds making a nest in one of the houses!

And speaking of feeders! Look what I did with an old child's swing and old collandar! I use it for bird food! :)

And speaking of swings! Hubby bought this before Thanksgiving and it has been sitting in the box all this time until last week! We still want to do something different with it. But for now it will be here.

I can't remember if I showed anyone this gate and horseshoe arch above it, so here it is! The birds love to sit on it!

My hubby and I have been arguing over the color of our lamp poles. I wanted to keep them black, but he won! He painted them white! And you know what? I am glad he won! They look so much better now! tee hee Don't tell him I said so! LOL

Oh and last year I bought some star brackets on ebay. We used them as corbels. They ended up being a lil smaller than we pictured, so my hubby had the same idea as I did! Beef them up with some wood! So here they are! I love them!

Oh and we have about 90% of our land cleared. Well the part we want done anyway! And thanks to hurricane Ike taking out some trees too here is what our property looks like now. We want our barn to go somewhere in here. Still undecided. You see my Magnolia tree? Our property has 2 of them on it! I love them!

And last but not least if you haven't seen my latest Spring Annies, here they are!
Ladybug n Bumble Bee! I listed them on ebay!

Here are the links

Oh and one more thing! I had some ZZ Top tickets (3) for the Houston Rodeo on ebay! I am flipping out! I started them at $50, well last night they ended at $192!!! This will really help our family right now as the person that is in our old house is behind 2 months (we did an owner finance) on the payments. So we have been footing the note for 2 houses plus she is trying to sue us for drawing up the wrong papers for our contract last year! This has been a nightmare! So now we had to hire an attourney! Fun huh?
Anyway, sorry this post is so long! I wanted to post more pics, but maybe later today! Take care and thanks for visiting my blog! (((HUGZ))) Nutt!

Hi Renae! Thanks so much for the comments on our home! I am officially in love with it! The more we do to it to make it our own, the more I love it! This is our forever home!
Good luck on building your houses this summer! I want to see pics if you do!
aww thank you for the comment on my dolls. Yes ebay has been tough. I have seen sellers not getting as much for their items, but some have been doing really well! So that gives me hope!
Good luck to you on yours! You do such awsome work!
