That Useless Cabinet above the Refrigerator


You know the one I'm talking about. That cabinet that is right above the refrigerator and too high to even reach and if you could, the refrigerator is in the way to really use it.

As I looked up at it and all the dust that it accumulates the other day, I decided it was time to change it up a little.




That's right, I ripped the doors off and filled it with old cookbooks that I had stuffed in another cabinet. Now that I think about it, I spent one whole morning moving "stuff" from one cabinet to another. At least this one is much more pleasant to look at now.




That red Betty Crocker Cookbook was actually a wedding shower present and the Taste of Home was a present from Brandon a couple of years ago. I love it!

In the basket are newspaper clippings that my mom had of recipes and an old cookbook from my grandma.



My mom had actually saved her book from her first mixmaster. I still remember that old thing sitting out on the kitchen counter as I was growing up.



I truly treasure this old cookbook from my grandma. You can sure tell her and then my mom used it a lot!



Where else could you possibly learn the correct way to fry in fat?



Or how about a fritter or two?




Yes, it's not much, but definitely an improvement!

Unicorn & Rainbows Necklace


Last year for Jennifer's birthday, I gave her a card that Jalynn & Jordyn thought was hysterical, which gave me an idea for a couple of little Christmas presents.



That's right, a unicorn farting rainbows!
(Perfect for a grandma to give her granddaughters, huh?)




I found the vials with the loops already in them at Hobby Lobby. All I needed to add was sand. I did put a little glue on the cork before I put it in to make sure it stayed.




I added the unicorn charm to the jump ring with the vial and put it all on a ball chain.




Using sticker paper, I printed out the saying and added it and washi tape to a colored box.




You'd think it would be harder to capture a unicorn and his rainbows, but it wasn't.




Have an awesome day. May it be filled with unicorns and rainbows!

A Big Secret!


I can't believe it, but I've actually been keeping a secret for a couple of months. Nobody thought that I could do it, but I did and now I can finally tell.



I'm going to be a grandma again!!
Brandon & Christina are giving us a new little grandbaby this July.

Let the baby projects begin!




I've already ordered that quilt pattern and can't wait to get started on it.





I, also, found those darling crochet baby Converse and hope that I can pull off making them.


July seems so far away to me, but if you take a look at my new Baby Pinterest board (Here), I really don't have much time at all!
