Come Have Some T with Me!!!


Goodmorning all my T people!! Look who came for T this morning! Click on pictures to enlarge........


He'll even share his birdseed with you ..nom ...nom... nom... Just look at that gorgeous tail.....


Its so hot and humid he can hardly stand it....shade! shade! give me shade! 


Look at all the lovely birthday cards i received from my crafty friends! Thank you Eileen, Krisha and Rita! 


I found time for some play and made a PostCard for a neglected swap partner...... I like the quote.. if you can't read it says... 'Life must be lived forward, but can only be understood backwards' It came from a fortune cookie...  :) The header is my cork board on the wall in the craftroom  and all my PostCards received from Krisha and Eileen over the past couple of years!! Wow! You'll find some T reference in there too.... and a couple from Violet!! 


Staining my window sills for the craftroom.... this takes a few days but i got it started....


This is a bookshelf i bought for the house in CA and couldn't find a place for it in this house but i think it holds my craft books and puzzles perfectly...  :)


Its a busy background but maybe you can see the windchime hanging there... getting things in place!!! woohoo... hubby is enclosing these poles with wood and they will have light switches on them..... it takes time......

My life will be all about staining for the next week ..... the window sills and the boards for the shelves on the wall we are installing over by the work area....I just gotta keep at it and it will get done.. I'm so glad you popped over for T with me and Mr. Red Tail Squirrel...lol I'll be around to visit !! Hugs! deb

You seem to be down to the less arduous jobs now Debs - am I right?

Rita said...

Looking good! Yes, the finishing touches always take time, too. Love your little squirrel friend. Happy 4th! :)

I think your craft room is going to be fantastic. What a great mobile. The finishing touches always take longer than the main work, but it is coming along. :) Happy early T day. :) Erika

I'm loving your craft room. That wind chime is incredible. They would fit perfectly with mine (grin). So glad to see so much progress has been made. If you need someone to hook up your light switches, I'm your gal. Your husband has done most of the hard work, anyway.

Your squirrel is the perfect T guest this week. Yes, that's a great tail. Thanks for sharing your continuing craft room update and your lovely T visitor for T this week. Happy 4th, too.

Happy belated birthday! Wish I had known and I would have added a card to your pile!

Your craft room is going to be great. You can give yourself a big old pat on the back for all the great work you have been doing.

Bird seed ... "nom ... nom ... nom ..." You're too much, Deb. A friend of mine recently caught her 2-year old feeding treats to their two dogs. One for Abuelo. One for Tia. And one for me! He went round and round until she had the heart to stop him. Nice of little Rafael to share; but dog food probably isn't too good for a growing human!

Play time? You had time for play? Woohoo! I love that quote. I didn't notice the corkboard display until you mentioned it. Awww ... That's really neat. Thank you ;-) My goodness, there's a lot of handmade love on that board ... as there is my 2 volumes of mail art!

Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

I have no idea how I missed the cork board in your header until just now when I returned to make sure I had read the correct post. I adore this and see you have room for more art that can go there. Again, happy belated birthday, happy Independence Day and happy T Day.

Aah, those squirrels-a pain but so cute too! I love when they come to my ground bird bath/watering hole to get a few sips:) What really lovely cards you have received-and a happy belated birthday if i didn't say before! Staining is just what my hubby has been doing- on the outdoor furniture. I offer to help but he won't let me so, hmph, I'll paint what I want on my journal pages:) Happy T day!

Love the new cork-board header. Your craft room is coming along so well. Your squirrel is very pretty, the ones over here are much smaller and dark red. Love all your cards, happy belated birthday to you! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

Love your birdbath and the squirrel. Aren't they funny creatures? When it's really hot, the squirrel that runs in my yard will actually sit in the birdbath to cool off. what a fun corkboard. All those beautiful things to look at and be inspired by. Your craft room is really taking shape. It will be so beautiful when it's finished. Have a good day

A belated happy birthday.I noticed your wonderful header and spent some time looking at that before i started Reading your post. Then of course I had the giggles about the squirrel. Really funny: shade, shade.
Your craft room is coming on nicely. And your windchime is amazing. I have never seen anything like it!
Happy T-Day,
Lisca
