Trash to Treasure

 Hey Y'all!  HAPPY FRIDAY!  The weather today is supposed to be beautiful--so warm and breezy--makes me wish I was at home, in a hammock underneath my favorite shade tree, with my quilt that my Mammaw gave me a long tie ago, reading a good Nicholas Sparks book, sipping on some coffee and resting comfortably.  Whew....excuse me....just went away in my La La Land for a few minutes. 
Do any of you have big plans for the weekend?  We'll be BUSY at The Doublewide!  Robbie's 5th birthday was this past Wednesday, but we'll be having his party tomorrow from 11 to 1.  We're having pizza and the kids will be making homemade crayons, decorating their own cupcakes to take home with them, and playing Birthday Party Bash on Wii.  It's so pretty we may even go outside instead of staying inside.  We have a picnic table out there and Robbie has a playground.  We'll see what the weather does...
Also, just wanted to let y'all see what I made this past week.  I had some scraps donated, like BOXES AND BOXES that are already cut into 6x6 and 7x7 and 8x8 squares.  I took a few of them and created a flower.  The doily on the inside was in a junk bag that I bought at a yard sale awhile back.  The backing is an old table napkin, and the center of the flower is an old clip on earring that I popped the back off of and hot glued into the center.  I bought the frame at my favorite hometown junk store for $1.00. 
I think I may have $2.00 in the WHOLE thing---if even that.
Anyway....hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Please remember to leave a comment and let me know you were here!
