My Baby boy

Hello, and happy Monday everyone.

In my last post I told of my son's Varsity Tigers football team making the Playoffs, and the big game was this past Friday (26th). Sadly, they lost the game to our neighboring rivals, the Newaygo Lions.

Austin and I were to have our picture taken together after the game by the mother of one of the players, who has her own Photography business. But everyone was just too emotional to have them taken ~ can't get a good picture if everyone is crying :(
Anyways, she offered to come out to our home Sunday afternoon to take our picture together, as she was also doing so for another mom and her Football son.

Thought I would share this special photo with my blogging friends. He may tower over me, but he is still my baby boy !

First Round Football Playoffs

Hello Everyone ~ Just a little quick post today :)

Tonight my son Austin's Football team will be playing against our Arch Rivals, the Newaygo Lions, in the first round of the Playoffs ~ Newaygo is our closest neighboring town, and had been in the same Conference as us, but at the end of the season last year they chose to leave it for another (shall we say Easier) Conference, and as luck would have it, our teams were paired together for the first round ! Players and parents were together for a little Party this past Sunday to watch the selection on TV, and a HUGE cheer erupted in the room when it showed us put together !

There is a lot of excitement in our town, and a HUGE crowd is expected at tonights game, which will be at Newaygo.

I hope you will wish my son, and our Grant Tigers luck tonight ~ It's going to be a great game !!

More Christmas Stockings

Hello Everyone! Just a really quick little post this evening to show you a couple of new Christmas Stockings that I have available right now on Ebay. You can click the link near the top of my sidebar to whisk you away to my Ebay site.

This first one is a sweet Patchwork style stocking, made with ONLY pretty rosey prints from the Mary Rose collections, and features lovely vintage laces, ribbons, glass and shell buttons....

This one features a really sweet Image of a Victorian girl holding onto some pretty freshly picked pink roses ~ I used fabrics that compliment the Image, with pinks and blues, and gorgeous vintage rose patterned lace inserted with Vintage blue double-faced satin ribbon, and Vintage Millinery near the top...

I had planned on getting one or 2 more stockings made this week, but so far have not had the time.....hopefully I can get to making them this weekend.

This Friday may be our son Austin's last Football game :( Last Friday was their last home game (which we won, 31-6), and at school the Seniors dedicated their "Away" Jerseys, and Austin dedicated his to me, his mama. After the game, all the Senior players lined up at one end of the football field, and slowly walked all the way across to the other was very emotional for all of them, and to us parents. I was waiting at the other end of the field for him, and we gave each other a big very proud of him!!!

Until next time sweet friends!!

Mirror before & After ~ New Christmas Stockings

A couple of days ago while checking out my favorite Thirft stores, I happened upon finding this beautiful mirror; now, it isn't vintage or old either, but it definitely has that wonderful vintage feel to it, and for just $4, I wasn't about to pass it up.

The first 2 photos show the before pics of the mirror ~ I love the oval shape of the mirror itself, and the beautiful details of the frame....just didn't care too much for the gold color.

So, the other day I primed it, and today I gave it a couple coats of one of my favorite spray paint colors, Dover White, by Krylon Fusion, and here she is....

I've placed the mirror on the overmantle above my fireplace, and I think it's the perfect place to display it...

I also wanted to share with you some pretty Christmas stockings that I have listed and available on Ebay....It's hard to believe that Christmas is only 2 1/2 months away...geez, where has the time gone?

I also have this sweet accent pillow currently available....Perfect for you pink lovin' gals :)

Thanks so much for stopping by.....sorry I haven't posted in such a long particular reason, just busy with other things, but I will TRY to be a better blogger, okay :)

Until next time sweet friends !!
