Daytona 500 - 2017

      We, my husband and I, have been enjoying ourselves in Daytona Florida. My cousin and her husband had two extra tickets for the Saturday race and for the Sunday Daytona 500. What a fabulous time we have had!!! Above is my husband waiting for the race to start.  The race was sold out for Sunday, 101,000 plus people there!!! This has been an awesome trip of a lifetime for us.  So thankful to have such a giving and kind cousin who was sweet enough to not only invite us to the races but allow us to stay with them in their home here in Daytona.  Kathy, Bruce, and Opey!!! 😍 Here's to racing!!!! Enjoy the new season-Martha

       Here we are ready to lead the group through town!!! I in my Mrs. Clause outfit and my husband as Santa, aka Mr. Claus.

      Rock Painting

      Hi there!! If you know anything about me you know that I am a quilter. But I have been up to some other activities as well.

      Last January I started a craft night for some girlfriends. It's something for us to do while our fellas are at their Motorcycle Meeting.

      This past Friday night we met and painted rocks. Lots of rocks. It was a ton of fun!!

       We meet at the Lebanon American Legion club in the Auxillary room. They serve food, so some of us get dinner and head in to start crafting!!!

       It truly is a lot of fun to gather together with these women and just enjoy the evening!!!
      We've done a lot of different crafts, but this was really a fun night.

      There is a group on Facebook called Linn County Rocks which I am now a member of. The idea is to paint a rock, hide it somewhere in Linn County Oregon, when found you either keep it or rehide it, but post a photo first on the Facebook site.

      We are now 4000 members in a really short amount of time!! SO FUN!!! For kids and grown ups.

      She did such an awesome job of finding that dinosaur in that rock!! LOVE IT!!!
      Chloe being silly with her cupcake rock.
      Audrey's rocks are Rockin!!
      my little ladybug rock

      OK, and more of my rocks. Still working on several. Once I am done I will have the grandkids help me hide them around town and in some parks.

      A house, in the beginning


      All my rocks together, still working on the house

      looking better

      About done, but now need to paint the back
      Still needs the eyes finished here and the wings

      Love this color

      The back of the house. I am going to put a
      little attic window in, then frame all the
      windows.

      So that is it with the rock painting. Still more to do. Once done, I will write information on the back of the rocks about keeping or rehiding and posting on facebook. I also spray it with a matte finish Modge Podge spray to protect and seal the paint. TaDa, done!!!

      Take care friends, enjoy the earth, paint a few rocks, take care of each other, pause. enjoy! Martha

      Making Fairy Houses for the Garden



      So I have been trying to make some fairy houses for my garden. Still working on the process but I will show you what I have  come up with so far.

      So I started with a yogurt container, emptied.
      After door and window cut out, grout applied and gravel, then
      dried.
      Building the roof from a pine cone.
      Coming along nicely, but not easy task!!!

      One Fairy House completed!!!
      More later!!! Take Care and Enjoy the Earth....................................................Martha
