Fun With Dining Rooms!

Hee-hee!  Do you like my title?
Get ready for a lot of pics!
I now have all my poppies and wheat pieces in one place!
My hoop wall was taken down because of my crazy cat and an old window put in its place.  Is the curtain too small?
I hung my Oh Happy Day hoop from Cottage Industry up above the window and hopefully it won't tempt the cat!
We shampooed the carpets the other day and that put me in a decorating/rearranging mood!  Does that happen to you, too?

See that shelf way up there?  NOT easy to get to!  
You should have seen me.  
I also rearranged the top part of the hutch.  I wanted my dots and Jadeite to be together.
And last but not least- the whole dining room!  
All fresh with Lilacs and redecorated!  
Just don't look at the kitchen or any other part of the house!
I hope you enjoyed your tour.

Canisters As Planters

Hello there dear blog readers!
I took my orphaned tin canisters down from the kitchen cabinets and assigned them to the porch!
  Cute huh?
They are on the front steps now but photographed better here on the porch table.
These canisters have been shared 17 times on facebook already!
So fun!
My boys took me hiking for Mother's day!  
It was just a 2 1/4 mile hike to Elk River lower falls but I LOVED it!  
It was my first hike since developing Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis AND Arthritis!
I had to bring a ski pole along but I DID IT!
Oh what I wouldn't give to have JUST lower back problems again!  

If you haven't hit 50 yet- ENJOY!
