Christy's Latest Creation :)





This is Christy's latest creation. She has taken up crocheting and has gone WAY beyond anything I have ever tried. I use to make bedspreads and afghans,doilies, hot pads etc.but never attempted anything like this.:) I think it is ADORABLE. Here is what she said about it when she posted it on Facebook. "First ever crocheted bear :D. He's not perfect, and took FORever to finish, but i think he turned out really cute..( made from a written pattern)" She found the pattern on Pinterest...which has got to be the latest hit on the internet. Several friends and members of my family(Christy and some nieces) have joined and pinned LOTS of things from there.:)

I know I have not posted as often as I use to. Life has a way of taking over. KWIM? I do have more pics of our trip to the Smoky Mtns. and will post them as soon as I get them organized. My header is one of them.:)

I have gotten a couple awards from my friend Kyra and will need to post those too.:) Thank you so much Kyra for thinking of me. How SWEET of you!!:) 

Thanks so much for stopping in and I would LOVE to hear from you!! :)

Hugs,
Valinda

Pics from our Trip to the Smoky Mtns this week.

Jim and I saw these beautiful horses on our trip to the Smoky Mountains, Monday morning. We just HAD to get pics....so we pulled over and then the one on the right decided to .....
roll around in the tall grass. He was feeling GOOD!:)The mountains in the background was one of our destinations.:)
This was a really nice way to start our trip.:)

Beautiful Sunsets From Trip Back From Florida :)

These are only a few of the pics I was able to capture of the BEAUTIFUL sunset on the way back to Georgia from Florida. We can find BEAUTY even in the saddest of times.:) We were coming home from Jim's Mom's funeral when we were BLESSED with this GORGEOUS sunset! I LOVE to take pics of the clouds and sunrises/sunsets when we travel to Florida.We live in Georgia and sometimes we don't get the full view because of the BEAUTIFUL landscape full of hills and trees.:) Jim said he LOVES the open spaces in Florida..but we both prefer living in Georgia.The change of seasons are worth it!! Gorgeous sunsets too when we don't have so many trees in the way.:) Thanks for stopping in.:) Hugs, Valinda
