Happiness Is Homemade

Welcome to Happiness Is Homemade Party

Hello my friends. I hope Your weekend is going well. Mine has been difficult. I am dealing with a very sick dachshund. Dachshunds are notorious for having back problems and that is where I am with my boy, Louie.  it started on Thursday and by Friday morning he was not able to come up a small step from the garage. I rushed him to the vet and she confirmed that the situation was serious.
She sent me home with meds and instructions to NOT let him walk at all. I had to crate him and pick him up to take him out to the bathroom and then carry him back in. It has been a crazy few days, but he seems a little better tonight. Needless to say, I don't get much done but take care of him. He is my baby boy so I am fine taking him. They are our babies and steal our hearts.

Thursday Favorite Things

Welcome to Thursday Favorite Things!

Thursday Favorite Things. Share NOW. #linkyparty. #TFT #eclecticredbarn

Happy Thursday! Can you believe that there are only 9 more days in this month? This summer is flying by. August will be here soon. Usually, as August approaches, that means school will be starting. I don't know about where you are, but schools have postponed the start date until the end of August. They have also given parents the opportunity to choose what type of education they want for their children. 
What is happening in your area? I know that this must be a difficult situation for parents. I am glad that I no longer have kids in school. it certainly is a different scenario.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Hello my bloggy friends. I hope you are all doing well. Heat is still high here. What about were you are? Here in Florida, August is still our hottest month so we still have that to look forward to. 
Hubby is still out of town helping our son with some projects so I am here doing my own projects. I miss him but it is nice to have some time to myself. Is it just women that need time alone or do men like it as well? What are your feelings on that subject? Do you enjoy time by yourself?

You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Happy Monday my friends. I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was interesting. It seems that every time hubby goes away for a trip, something weird happens. Two years ago, I broke my foot when he left. 

Our pool has been working just fine every day since it was put in. Yesterday, I noticed that there was some water around the pump and saw that a valve on the filter was leaking a little. Called hubby and he told me what to do.  Unfortunately, when I started the system back up, it wouldn't work. He had me go though all of these things and still nothing. I worked for hours, nothing. Water is not cycling into the pool and the fountain is not working either. Why now?  Fortunately, our pool guy is coming tomorrow. Let's hope all is well.

White Wreath for Vintage Ladder

White Wreath for Vintage Ladder

Normally, when the holidays come, I see so many posts showing lovely pom pom wreaths. I always want to make one, but it seems that the holidays come and go and I don't get one made. So, I decided to make one early. (It is Christmas in July after all, right)

I have a vintage ladder in the spare bedroom and thought a wreath would look nice on it. So I decided to make a white one. Partly because it would go with the quilts on the ladder and partly because I had white yarn.

I love old quilts and love to collect them. I have a few that my grandmother made but the rest I have picked up here and there. I have had this ladder for a long time and finally decide to put it in this bedroom with some quilts on it. I thought it needed something else and so a wreath came to mind. I had white yarn so made a white pom pom wreath and then hung it on my ladder.

Although I liked it, the all white wreath seemed blah! Maybe I should have made it more random or used another color. How could I fix this? I had no other pom pom yarn that would work so I looked in my finer yarn basket. I use these ones for crocheting doilies. I picked out a beige one and then mixed the two yarns together to make new pom poms.

These new pom poms have just enough color in them to dress up the white wreath. I added a few here and there and I was happy. What do you think? Do you like the plain white wreath or the addition of a the beige pom poms?
