The Hardest Post

This is by far the hardest post that I have ever had to write....

My very first follower and one of my best friend unexpectedly lost her best friend, the love of her life, her husband last Thursday. They are the couple that everyone looked to as having the perfect couple. I know they had little spats, but nothing huge. They ate dinner at their table every night without the T.V. on.

Jeremy was one of the most fun loving, easy going guys that I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I can at least say that he and Miranda knew what love is. There are not many people out there that know the kind of love these two experience. They had been together for 16 years, which is a very long time in this day and age when they started dated when Miranda was 15.

Jeremy was 33 years old and at this time they believe that he had a brain aneurysm. This has been very difficult for everyone we know because of how much the two of them were loved by everyone. I believe that every person they met became their friend.

This is what Miranda had to say about him and it is completely true. "He was known for his generous spirit, easy laugh, and love of fishing.""Also his soft spot for animals"

All I know is I would give anything to hear is laugh one more time.

Jeremy, Dennis and I will love and miss you always you touched our lives in more ways than you would ever know.

My Favorite Shop

This entry was to be much longer but because of what happened last week, which you can read about here, but bring tissues it is a bit shorter.

My favorite place is Charles Phillips Design, just south of my home town of Mobile, AL. There is something about trucking through barns to look at furniture and accessories that are half the price of what you see in Pottery Barn.

I have several pieces as do two of my best friends, my mother in law, and my aunt. So as you can see when I go I get instructions from Dennis not to buy to much.

I am planning on designing a coffee table sometime this fall so I can't wait for that. I highly suggest if you are in the area to Like Charlese Phillips on Facebook and just take a look at what they have in stock. I promise you want be disappointed.

By the way I am not paid advertiser just a happy customer.

MIA - Again, but I have been a busy girl.....

I need to stop missing in action so much. I may have been missing in action, but I have been super busy so stay tuned for some big reveals coming shortly.

In the meantime sit tight and take a look at some of the things that I have been working on.

First and foremost I have been working on some art for my craft room, (yep after eight long months it is almost ready for the big reveal.) I am not an artist. I will never claim to be. I love to paint on canvas, but what I see in my head doesn't always come out on canvas. Sort of like my singing I am like one of those American Idol singers who think they sing well and they really don't. At least I know I can't sing. Plus I literally make dogs howl with my singing, true story.

I found a picture on Pinterest that I loved and copied it to my liking so it shown at the top of the post. I am a good copier, in my opinion and that is the only one that counts. Right?! By the way the way the original is from World Market - who has the best tissue paper by the way. Two Girls Being Crafty have a good tutorial that is easy to follow if you would like one of your own.

My second painting is my own personal impression of cherry blossoms. I hope you didn't laugh too hard when you saw it. Hey, I said I wasn't an artist. Dennis also informed me that the colors are going to clash with the other painting....thanks honey. I love you too....................
