Stargazers are my favorite flower.
I have a few that come back every year and this year they were huge!
I didn't have to edit these pics. They had just bloomed & were perfect.
Ok, now on to this last week.. I'm not going to bore you with all the details, so here's the Reader's Digest version.
First of all..do you guys know what this is?
That's Goliath. It's an INSANE roller coaster at Six Flags.
Rule #1, don't ride roller coasters when you're stopping for Pepto on the WAY TO Six Flags because you feel queasy. Rule #2, LOOK at the roller coaster BEFORE you get on it. I didn't do that. I just got in line behind my husband and hopped on...like an idiot.
The next highlight was a fierce storm that blew through July 4th. Lightning knocked on my front door, came in and cooked my modem, seriously..it was FRIED. So after many, many phone calls to AT&T and a delivery from UPS, we have a new modem and are up & running. Being offline was strange, to say the least. I didn't realize how much I rely on the internet; the upside is, I got a stupid amount of projects either finished or nearly finished (applause, applause). The newest one started is my hallway...
I took all of our pictures down, then remembered to take a picture.
After I have worked my magic with spackle. Since this is a small space, I'm going to do something that packs a punch.
I'm inspired by this:
I'm not quite sure exactly how I'm going to paint the hall or the frames yet but I love LOVE this picture. This is beadboard all over but I think white paint will have a similar impact, as long as the details are done well.
I finally have stuff to share on the den but since I didn't want to do megapost, I thought I'd wait until tomorrow. I'll talk to you later & it's good to be back online!!
