My girlfriends son took these pictures. I can't wait to see the show air and see what they found!


What's In Your Backyard?

We've had a few warm days and It's got me to thinking....about my backyard. It's large enough, almost 4 acres. Oh what I could do with that! And I will someday when my youngest moves on. Right now my backyard is his heaven complete with a track for him and his friends to ride their dirtbikes on. They've got ramps and hills to jump. Ditches and even banking around the corners! It's gonna take a backhoe to level it all again! Not to mention it's not very peaceful when there are 5 or 6 very loud dirtbikes here! So for now I'll just dream about the gardens but I know when that day comes I'll wish more than anything to hear the laughing voices of the boys again and hear the screaming engines of their dirtbikes.

My SOMEDAY backyard.....

So, What's In Your Backyard?

Flooding in our area - Central Pa

 The river has yet to crest.........
Blue Spruce Inn - Rt. 405 Just south of Milton
Click on the photos to enlarge.
 Rt 405 Near the intersection of Housels Run Rd. Looking North
 Boyer Rd off of Rt. 405. Flooding from the Chillisquaque Creek
 Again, Boyer Rd

 Railroad tracks also flooded from Chillisquaque Creek
 Milton Post Office behind the Elks sign - looking north
 Park in town
 Business in Milton on Front St
 Ah Yeah, No Parking Here! lol
 Milton Moose, being flooded from a stream behind it. The river is across the street. I'm sure the river and the stream will meet in the next day or two.

Eiffel Tower Dresser

I've moved....Please hop over to my new and much improved blog and read the story there......

My inspiration for this dresser I believe was a girl from Texas.
My computer crashed and I lost the link and pictures. If anyone knows, please tell me
so I can give her credit.

Edited to add:

Thanks Marguerite and Mariette! My inspiration came from Gussied Up Furnishings in Austin TX.

Marilyn & I found this broken down dresser at a yardsale for.........$3.00!
I couldn't believe the price! And it was the last day of the sale! I sanded it down and fixed the
damaged veneer top. Sorry, once again I forgot to take before pictures.
I painted it black and then distressed it really hard. Then modge podged old book pages to the drawer fronts.
I printed out the Eiffel Tower in sections and modge podged them on top of the book pages after they were good and dry. It was much harder than I anticipated to get everything straight and aligned! I just sprayed the original hardware black and reused it.
Then 3 coats of wipe on poly. (Love this stuff!)
She now stands proud at the entrance of the shop. I'm secretly hoping she doesn't sell (well not secretly.....everyone knows!) I would love to bring her back home!
