Red Neck Beach Fun!

Wow, July has flown by. School is going to start back in a week, I'm not sure if I'm ready.  I really enjoyed my week end.  I got to spend time with my wonderful sons and my Grand baby. She had never been to a creek, so we decided to introduce her to the REDNECK Beach!  This creek has been used for years. My cousins and I played here, I have taken my boys here when they were little and now I have taken my grand baby!  We all had a blast and she LOVED it!  I so enjoy simple pleasures as this and making memories.


Wishing everyone a Wonderful week!

DIY Home Made Chalk Paint Dining Table Makeover

After two years of saying I was going to re do this table, I finally did it using home made chalk paint.

1 cup of paint mix with 1/4 cup plaster of paris, small bit of water (maybe 1/8 of a cup). Mix plaster of paris up with water first and add to paint, mix thoroughly.
