Got Beach Fever?

Since February (in Utah) is a TOTAL cosmic mistake on the calendar (other than my daughter's birthday) I have found the perfect thing to do during February!
It has to do with this...

And lots of this...

And quite a bit of this..........

And who can forget this?

I am totally thinking this should be an annual February thing!

Any takers?

Wow! have the months flown by or what? Talk about blog neglect! Good thing I am my only reader! I can't believe it's a new year already. Wasn't it just summer? I haven't even cleaned up the trailer from Farmboy's last hunting expedition! (But don't tell anyone ok?) Well, a new year has begun, and I have lots of fun projects planned, but actually doing them may not happen. A long, long, time ago, I wrote about a project I was going to do with the old window from the front of our house. It was one of those great ideas that take forever to get around to. Plus the spot I was going to put it needed to be used for something else, and on and on. Anyhow, I finally got it finished. What do you think?
It is hard to tell, but there is a little bird on one of the branches, At Christmas I put a little cardinal on the branch. I would like a saying also, but haven't come up with what I want yet. So it's still a work in progress. Hopefully this year we can get some crown molding up in this room. We have a big project planned, that will eventually include a fireplace.. I can't wait! I'm willing to live with the mess just to have a cozy spot in front of the fire. Sometimes winter is just too long! My plan is to do better this year with the blog, and try to get some projects in also! Have a great New Year, and decorate something!
