window mirror

I got this DIY idea from here and the instructions from here. I found this very old window frame in an old barn (in-laws old barn). I decided to go for the antiqued look so I left it the same but did spray some krylon matte finish for protection.

Nicole, here are some pics...it was hard to get good ones with it already hanging this high. I have extra frames if you want one.

fun in the sun and more...

We had fun on our quick get-away to Edisto beach with our friends. Of course, I wish we could have stayed longer but...back to the real world we go. We grilled shrimp one night and also made some home-made strawberry ice cream. Oh, so good! Here are some pics... ( I found a new setting on my camera and got a little carried away)

making yummy strawberry ice cream..

As you can see, I got a little too much sun, even though I used copious amounts of sunscreen...
thank goodness for aloe...


thats it for this random post!

going to the beach...

So, I'm sitting here waiting for my husband to get home so we can go to the beach. I have been packed since Wednesday night, ready to go (maybe just a little anxious to get there). Our friends are already there and the weather is beautiful! Even if it is only for the weekend, I'm still excited! Just think...in a few hours, we will be on the beach...laying on the sand and baking under the sun (of course with layers of sunscreen on).....
