I've been busy making unique Birdhouses

for the past few days with help from my sweet husband. I don't know what I did to deserve such a special person in my life.
We are making these Birdhouse unique by adding old collected items to them, such as Old rusty hoe, old rusty shovel, old aluminum funnels (2 of those- different styles) old horse harnesses and bridles, old ceramic electric insulators.
I will be listing them on Bonanle and Ecrater one day next week when I get the pictures made. I hope some of my friends stop by and see them. I will probably post them on Facebook also, it gets more traffic that this blog.
I wish there was a creative Birdhouse group I could join but I am not aware of one.
I've been helping Ike in the kennels this morning. He just sold one of our registered Dachshunds. I've also cleaned a flower bed. I'm sweaty and nasty right now. Need a bath but will be going back out, so no need for that yet. It's really hot here today and not raining for a change.
I got a order from eBay for 50 ceramic buttons, I need to get started on them Monday. Looks like I will not have as much free time this coming week as last.
Life is good and has been very productive.

It's rainy here today not getting to much done

I think if it ever stops I will be working in the yard pulling weeds while the ground is soft and weeds are easier to pull. Not a fun job under the best of circumstances- but I'm afraid it's a necessary one.
Ike just ask if we were going to do anything today -so I better close this out and get going while he is ready to do something productive.
A productive day is a day not wasted.
I did have a very productive day yesterday- see the new W/Gig above, I did.
A day wasted is one you can never get back. We should always strive to make the most of all the time we are given.
Life is good.

TGIF- I'm ready for the weekend

I've had a really busy day. I helped Ike clean the garage hoping this would get me some points to get something done that I want him to help me with. It worked.
We now have a clean garage and I have this beautiful new trellis I wanted for my Jasmine vine. I've included a picture for you to see. I love it. He is just the greatest- when he wants to be. I even got a birdhouse out of the bargain but we didn't get it finished. Maybe we will get it finished tomorrow.
It has just been a beautiful day. The day was just perfect temperature wise, not to hot and not to cold. This is the best time of the year.
I had a eBay order for 2 Tweety Whirligs this evening. I know what I will be doing tomorrow- getting those crafted.
I love to make things though, when I have orders.
Life is good.

A day in the life.

This has just been the nicest day. Ike was here with me and we didn't do anything but hang out together and plant a few thing- dug in the dirt so to speak.
He is raising a garden again this year. I know I should be down there helping him but gardening to me is a waste of time. Most of the time the things he plants just go to waste -since I don't know a thing in the world about canning or preserving vegetables.
He has planted over 300 strawberry plants. I love strawberries and tomatoes but all of the other stuff I don't care for- I don't like vegetables- I will eat corn, and potatoes but the green stuff, I don't like. My daughter ask him to plant her some okra and squash- so he did. I hope she will take care of it and see that it gets preserved. Mama can't help her though- so I don't know who she can ask. I could probably Google it for her. Can you believe someone my age doesn't know how to do these things. It's just so much easier to buy it at the Super Market fresh, or in a can, all ready to cook.
I take care of my plants and flowers around the house and in the yard- that's enough to keep me busy.
This is Wednesday already- I haven't been to busy this week.
I did sell a Wyle Coyote W/Gig on Monday from my Ecrater Booth and got it shipped out today.
(See the picture above of the finished W/Gig)
I have 3 Mugs to do tomorrow.
I will get them done tomorrow for sure- since I just heard Ike get a call to help move some cows from a neighbor - he will be off to work and that is when I seem to get more done than usual. 3 Mugs want take long to do.
He should be home by noon and we have a trellis to build when he gets in.
I want him to help me build some birdhouses but am not having to much luck getting him to do it. It requires lots of angles, measuring, and power tools- I don't do good with those things, but I can sure decorate them once they are done. I have all kinds of unique ideas floating around in my head.
Gona close- I'm rambling as usual.
Life is good.
