I have a deer stand that I sit in and take pictures  through out the year,
but I am curious to know what is lurking out there when I'm not there.
So I have a few cameras strapped to some trees.
Wanted to share this cute picture that
 makes me smile everytime I look at it.

Isn't this little fawn just the cutest thing.
Guess he wanted to make sure the camera was working. LOL
Have a great weekend,

Longing For My Lost Friend...SPRING

Spring... oh how I long for your days to finally be upon us.

I long for your heavy morning more frost.

The lizards are ready to come awake and take their place on the brick wall surrounding the patio.

Aww, but what I long for the most is the trickle of water in my fountain surrounded by lush more fountain filled with green water and dead oak leaves.

Ok Spring...I am ready to say goodbye to Mr. Winter and welcome you home like a long lost friend.

I just love my window to the outside, but when we gave our kitchen a make over they removed my plantation shutters to install the new tile. 
Of course that's when the truth came out.
Camo Man, aka my husband, said he hated my shutters. Well lets just say he did not have them reinstalled. 
That left me with a naked window...yikes!

I was on the hunt for some fabric...Ah..heaven for me...I have a little addiction to fabric.

The one below was to busy and Camo Man said "No more flowers."

This was fantastic, oh that  gorgeous grey that is so in style.  
But way outta budget for these kitchen curtains and it really did not look all that great. (Note you can see the sample hanging in the first picture).
Even if something is in style and current, if it does not work or is not over the top fabulous, just do not use it.

 While out on an adventure with Susie.  I spotted some drapery panels that I thought just might work.    
 TIP *    If you want your drapery to look like you had a professional make them, just add inexpensive backing to them.  

Then I had to frufru them up a bit with a little trim.

Took a little needle and thread to add a few gathers.

And there you have it, my new curtain made from a store bought panel.
I will have to show you what I did with the left over fabric I cut off.

Thank you for stopping by,
