My Week

Well, things are looking up this week. A few things have gotten done in the heat wave. I know most of the country is suffering, but we are pretty used to 100 degrees in the summer in Texas. Hubby had a birthday and I wanted to show you one of his gifts. I ordered this from this Etsy shop. Hubby was in the Navy during the Evacuation of Saigon and this was his ship. 
 Here's a closer look. The artist even put the insignia of the Blue Ridge in the lower corner. I love how he had the ocean melting into the map of the Japan. This ship is still going today. Anyway, he really liked it and it is hanging in the office.
 New garage door-done.
 New matchstick blinds- hung. I had to shorten all of them and we had to cut the width down on one. They came out great. Still can't get into my craftroom though, and I really miss it.
 I put some little daisies in my vases. I really like the look.

 I have decided I love daylillies. They are doing great in our hot temps.
Mostly just staying inside in the cool. This will last through mid September for us. Hopefully the heat won't last that long wherever you are. Have a great week and stay cool!

  2. What a thoughtful birthday gift for your hubby, Leslie, and I'm sure he was deeply touched with it. Your blinds look great in your eating area, and the vases of single daisies look so pretty on your coffee table, in your lovely, inviting home! Stay cool!

  3. Hi Leslie, what a wonderful gift for your hubby. How terrific to find something so special. Happy Birthday to him.
    The blinds looks fantastic and I love the pop of red for the summer in your kitchen dining area and the family room. So cheerful and refreshing. The daisies are so pretty in the little bottles.
    I love day lilies too but mine have only bloomed in spring this year. Nothing since then. Glad yours are doing so well. Pretty yellow color too.
    Stay cool and have a great rest of the week!!

  7. How special that painting must be to your husband. You were so thoughtful to find the perfect gift for him. You've gotten lots of things done too! I love your new garage door. I love them without windows. Ours has windows and I don't like that! Your blinds look so nice too! I'm sorry it is so hot now in Texas. It was 65' here today! I can hardly believe it. Thanks for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
