What seem's like nothing...

I have been busy, busy...
doing what seems like nothing~!

My kids have been gone visiting my parents,
they come home today.

I have managed to clean most of the house,
but have decided what I have not finished,
will still be there for whenever.

I have been doing a lot of canning.
corn, nectarines, peaches and lots of jam.
So, I suppose, I have accomplished something.
But...nothing exciting.

We have plans to go camping,
We have not gone anywhere all summer,
and school starts in 2 weeks. 
 Not happy!

I did make this banner yesterday,

I think it turned out darling.

My girlfriend Jennifer at Rosey Little Things has
a daughter turning "one" soon and her "1st Birthday Pink Party"
is this coming weekend.  We will be out of town,
but when I helped her make the invites I told her I would
make a banner for little Scarlette too...so I did.
Of course I waited till the last minute, as usual.

The scalloped squares are pages from a Bazzill mini album I took apart.
They were already precut and prepunched,
all I did was ink the edges.
The shabby design floral paper I applied to them,
is wrapping paper I had here at home.
The chipboard letters and fancy oval ornate things are made by
Tattered Angels.  I inked them pink and then used some
Martha Stewart clear glitter on them and tied the whole thing
together with white tulle.  Shabby cute and perfect for her Pink
Decor.  Jen said she "loved it" and I am so glad!

Don't you love my vintage armoire it is hanging on? 

It is from Europe and is over 100 years old. 
It actually comes apart,
it consist of 11 pieces in all.

They made it that way because the hallways and
entry doors in Europe are very small and narrow.
If made in one piece,
it would never fit.

It has it's quirks,
and I have had to drill a screw into it here and there,
but I love it!
