We are definitely in the doldrums of summer here in AZ.  By now we are sick of the heat, we are all over it.

I did manage to finish a creation for a swap I entered.  But I can't show y'all yet.

I am still dealing with this health issue and I am over it too!

BJ showed her favorite tea cup on her blog and because you know we have to have a picture.  I got this teacup on sale at Michaels.  It is one of my favorites!

Isn't it always Time for Tea??

What Is This?

We went garage-saling up north....and I came across these.

I know that they are spools of some sort, but these are unlike any I have....
because of the notches in the big one, I wondered if the smaller ones go on it?

Does anyone know?

We didn't get Washed Away

but wow!  what a storm!  So many people lost so much with all the flooding.  First time it has rained that much in 75 years!

Last week was a bugger for hubby and I.  I had 4 appointments in 3 days.  He had one.  We were pooped out!  But Praise the Lord, there is no cancer in my bladder.  I have one tumor on the outside which is causing a bit of problem, but they are trying some meds to alleviate the discomfort.

In the meantime, I did do something fun!  My husband found a little cabinet with 4 drawers.  $5.00 at a garage sale.  It was handmade.  So after cleaning it up a bit, we put new knobs.  Each one different. 

Then I copied some love letters from my husband while we were dating.  I decopaged them to the top.  Oh it turned out perfect for our bedroom at the cabin-ette.

We love it.  You can see our little headboard, which is a narrow shutter.

Our little sweet bedroom.  We had the windows open a little and listened to the rain falling.  It was a wonderful sound!

yada, yada, yada

Cancer is awful!  I hate it!  I am angry I have it.....and it has been rearing it's ugly head the last few weeks.  I have not been well, enduring a problem with one of my organs.  I did see a specialist today and will have a procedure on Friday morning.

Since I can be sick anywhere, we did go up to our cabin for Labor Day.  Our deck is my favorite place to be.  So I did a little decking up!!! 

I found the louvered doors at Habitat for Humanity Restore.  Hubby affixed  them to the back of the deck to hide the shed!  I love it.  The bistro set was bought at a resale shop. 

I am not sure if I have shown this before, but I saw it on Pinterest.  It is just an old cupboard door that hubby painted, I sanded and stenciled the RELAX on it!

The shutters my husband made for me on all the windows.  The little birdcage is from HL sale aisle.  I put faux succulents in each cup.

This is setting by the glider I got at another garage sale for $25.00.  I have ALWAYS wanted a glider!

Found these at yard sales.....

I put a little fall into the mix.!

This is from me standing on the ground by the front side of the deck.

Just a reminder of what the deck looked like when we bought it....

I am loving this little doll house and desperately need to feel better to enjoy it more!

Next, I will show a little bedroom project I did......
