New flowers for the front porch

I've been working on gathering things for the front porch and I found this cute tulip pot at Walmart so I planted it with primrose. There's a red one on the other side that you don't see. I'm hoping that it will stay blooming because it going to be on a shelf in mostly shade and they say they will bloom longer if in shade!
I also found time to bake bread and bottle some strawberry jam, Yum!

Pumpkin Quilt!

With painting class and we've been working in our yard getting it ready to receive grass and flowers that I haven't had much time for anything else. But I did find some time while it decided to snow again to get some of my pumpkin quilt sewed together. Now I just need to find some more time to cut out the border that will be around this part! But I don't want it to snow anymore so maybe this weekend!

Have a beautiful spring day we are getting into the 60's here!!!

Beginning Painting Class

This is the start of the pictures from the painting class that we started last week. Hubby's picture is of a hike that we went on in the Smokey Mountains. It was a year ago this last May that we visited there with our son and his family.
Here is mine and it also is a picture that I took when we went to the Smokey's. It is of my two grandson's walking towards a barn. We have allot of work to do on them but I think they aren't to bad for beginners. We've talked for years about taking a painting class together so it pretty neat that we started one.

Hubby's mother was such a beautiful painter and is 88 and doesn't paint anymore so she gave us all of her supplies. She even gave hubby her easel so I didn't have one so hubby got me this one off of eBay. Its a french style easel and folds up to a box so that I can take it outside or with us when we travel.
Hope you have a warm spring day, it looks like rain here!

I took a break!

I'm sorry but I think I needed a break from blogging to get things done and rest! But I'm back and I thought that I would tell you about my birthday. I was at the end of March and these lovely garden boots were given by my Hubby. He also gave me oil paints and signed us up for a class together. We started yesterday and boy was it fun!
My six year old grandson's birthday comes just two days after mine so we decided to have a party together at a place call "Blouncing off the Walls". We invited our family and my daughter-n-laws family and there neighbors.

As you can see there was allot of people mostly ones under the age of twelve!

This is my son coming down the slide and yes I did go down it three times with my seventeen year old granddaughter!
Have a wonderful spring day!
