Today I'm going to show you these fantastic frames that I made from some old shutters.

I promised you necklaces, so here we go...I am totally digging the statement necklace trend. Big, bright statement pieces, I am in! So when a department store near me had a "everything in the store is on sale" sale I spent an inordinate amount of time wandering through their jewelry section picking up various statement necklaces. Personally, I like the necklaces with a variety of colored resin stones, but none of those were really on sale sale, they were just on sale. Ladies, you know what I'm talking about. But I did find several monochromatic necklaces in the clearance section and I knew that I could reconfigure them and get that multicolored look I like for less. So I bought 5 amazing necklaces...which I promptly took apart.

Hey everybody, I apologize, but my big girl job has gotten the best of me today and I am just now running to grab something for lunch even though the day is almost over, but I'm starving! Anyway, I'm going to postpone my post until tomorrow when I can get it up at a reasonable time for you guys. In the meantime, enjoy National Tequila Day!!!
I am very disappointed in you guys. Way back in May I did two posts, Spring Cleaning My Brain and So Many Projects..., on how MANY projects I have to do and how I wanted you guys to hold me accountable and, well, you've let me down. I mean, no one has been banging on my door asking if I finished anything, sending me e-mail reminders, nothing. Seriously people, what are you thinking? That I'm an adult and should be responsible for myself...Well, I actually have been! (I know, I'm as surprised as you!) I've actually got 3 projects that I've done since that post that I'll be sharing with you over the next several posts. Today's is going to be how I framed the painting my friend Carrie made for me for my birthday. I apologize there is no before, I really thought I took one, but I know you guys can use your imaginations.

So, let's talk about watermelon...I love watermelon. When the bro and I were kids our family used to have watermelon seed spitting fights in the backyard. For dessert everyone would get a big slice of watermelon and we would run around trying to spit the seeds at each other. Fun, right?!? It was so much fun, but you wanted to pay close attention to the bro because more often than not he would just spit big bites of watermelon at you! We all definitely required hosing off before heading back into the house on nights where watermelon was the dessert. Whenever I think of summer I think of watermelon seed fights in the backyard dotted with fireflies...magic!
