It's that time of year again when my honey goes off fishing with 9 of his buddies for a week....and I am off to MY friends for a week also. You might remember last year when I had a picture of Fran, Cheri and myself on my front porch after a day of wandering the thrift shops in town. Well, we are at it again, this time in Washington...we're gonna have so much fun! I'm bringing three little bird houses for us to paint (a small project). And I think we may even go into Canada if we have the time and inclination! But it's GIRLS WEEK and we are gonna do whatever we want to do!! COWGIRL-UP! YEE HAA!

These pictures are the newest lamp I made for a customer named Suzie. A very sweet lady who just happened to have her first grandchild, this month! A baby girl named Madison who is just the cutest little thing! Suzie is decorating a room in her house just for Madison and wanted a lamp for that room. She sent me the baby head vase to see what I could do with it. I had a little vintage childs pillowcase with a bunny embroidered on it, and it is just perfect for her lamp! So, what do you think? Cute, huh? Please visit her blog at (I still can't get the http thing to work here! And I cannot get the pictures in correctly, ARRRGH!)and see little Madison with the biggest pink "bow" on her sweet littlehead!

So now I'm off to enjoy a week just relaxing, junking, yard saleing, and who knows what else!!!
