Sorry to have been missing from here

The weather has been so beautiful this past week. Today was even in the 40's. It was is nice that I really got spring fever! This is what I am looking forward to. A nice green yard again. I have to look at my pictures to remember just how green and colorful our yard is in the summer. I can't believe that our flowerbeds are all under about 6 years old. Each bed of course younger as we keep adding more. I went back to the first pictures from about 2005 and marvel on how much we have done in the backyard and front yard. Now with the weather we have been having the snow is melting and some of the green is starting to show. I know that we aren't done with snow yet. But it last for shorter periods of time now. Days are even getting longer!
Anyway I haven't been posting much. But there is a reason. I have been fighting with kidney stones the last 3 1/2 weeks. It has been all I can do to get through work, etc. I had 3 really bad days and the rest have been very uncomfortable. I had a Ct scan done on monday and the stones are lower so hopefully I will pass them soon. I am getting so tired and frustrated. I am not good with pain. But think I have held up pretty good. Just didn't want to write posts that sounded pitiful! Like poor me.
I am re-papering the Bellingham Farmhouse kitchen. I sort of killed the paper trying to put waincotting up. But I think I will actually like this new paper in there better. Still have some scraping to do. Maybe the house will like it better also and stop fighting me on everything. lol. This house for some reason doesn't seem to like my ideas. I don't know why I am having so much trouble. Usually I get ideas and they work the way I want. I think this house is just a diva. Very spoiled and can't make up it's mind. lol. I didn't win anything in the HBS (Hobby Builders supply) contest. But they gave all who entered a $30 gift certificate to the store. I am so happy with that as I can always use something, of course. Who can't? Bellingham needs the chair that matches the sofa I have already, so I will probably get that. I saw a cassorole dish that will also go good in there. "Aunt Gertie" has been pretty patient with the chaos which is her house. Some day she may have a home to live in!!!
Well anyway I hope top be on here more often. Teresa
P.S. I saw a magnet that said "Boys are stupid, throw rocks at them". I told my husband...WATCH OUT I AM GROWING MY OWN ROCKS TO THROW AT YOU. He is learning to duck...Just kidding.

My new FAVORITE song

Crystal Bowersox--Farmers Daughter
A story of her abusive childhood. I had tears in my eyes, both from the song and her voice. I just love both.

Merry Christmas and pictures

The nativity ornament I had for a few years. The Bunny we bought at the Christmas tree farm

Our tree, It really is straight! I must have been crooked when I took the picture. LOL.
I love my gardning gnome and santa.

The green ball in the net I bought at a greenhouse last year. I really like it. The white ball was a wedding present from a dear friend. The bell is an old ornament that was in the family.
Teddy bear I bought at Hobby Lobby last year. I was hoping to find a couple more this year. I think he is cute.
A Christams ball we bought in Hawaii in 2004 We took our honeymoon 2 years after we married.  I love how the lights light it up!
My husband bought me this snowflake this year. Isn't he just a sweetheart!

I love this snowman also.
I bought this ornament for Jeff this year. It looks just like our Welsh Pembrook Corgi Tanner.
I bought this one for him also. The blue roan (black and silver) looks just like out Murphy. The white and red one (orange roan) looks just like the girl (Jenna) I had when we got married. Both English Cocker Spanials.

I just want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and A wonderful, and Healthy New Year.
I have loved reading your blogs and hope to see you all in the new year. Hugs, Teresa

HBS (Hobby Builder's Supply) contest build. TJ's Retreat

This is TJ's retreat. My 2010 HBS (Hobby Bulder's Supply) contest entry. I should have done a little bit more to it, but ran out of time.I have better close-up but can't seem to find it right now and seeing that it is 3am I am going to stop looking! LOL.I like it though. It was fun to do. Contests are fun  to do but not sure if I will do any next year or not. The next HBS one is just a little bit more then I can afford at this time. I will see what the Greenleaf one is next spring. I do have one house that I want to make for a donation. Maybe Christmas angel tree child. I would like to concentrate on that one and The Bellingham Farmhouse. Will just have to see what comes up next year.
