A {Sweet} little photo shoot....

I attend church with 2 young ladies, and we are all birthday week buddies!!  So, last night I was kinda bored and restless,,,so I got to making some brownies for my two birthday week buds.  While the brownies were baking, I quickly made some cards for each of them.

Some bakin, some stampin, some rippin, some gluein and before I knew it the evening had flown by!

I used some clear gift wrap, stacked the brownie squares and tied with a pretty ribbon.

Each girl got 2 packs of  brownies in a little gift bag.  Before I went to work, I delivered them to school and left them at the office where the girls would be called to pick up their special delivery.  Isn't it fun to surprise people!!   My prayer for K and E, would be that they will have a great year, and that they will truly know the God who made them!  He made them very well!!   { Happy Birthday}

Mosaic Monday Fall colors

I haven't posted a Mosaic Monday post for awhile, so I put together a collage of a few of my autumn pictures and this is what I came up with.

I kinda like it as black and white too, with a little shot of orange...

I can't believe it is the end of October already.  
Wishing you all a great week ahead !

Be sure to stop by the Little Red House to see all the other great pics!

Turquoise lovin Barn Charm...

Who ever thought I would be able to post on two completely DIFFERENT blog parties with one picture where there is something in COMMON!!  Well,, this week it is the Turquoise lovin post over at Sweet Little Gals and Barn Charm over at Bluff Area Daily.

Now, there is alot of turquoise!!
I have never seen a barn this blue!

For the most part this yard looked pretty much abandoned.
The roof sure is good on this little barn though, shame to see it empty.

So, be sure to stop by the other blogs and have a great day!!

Little pumpkin photo shoot...

It was another beautiful fall day here in the Canadian Badlands.  I headed outside with a few props and little pumpkins.  Here's what I came up with after having some fun editing in Picnik.

Black and White with the orange painted back in.
I bought a piece of burlap to use for a backdrop....

These are the pumpkins I used on our Thanksgiving Dinner table.....
Just switched up some of the letters

I liked seeing all the white pumpkins in blogland, so I painted
a few of these minis to go along with my white pitcher.

Have a great week everyone!
Happy Fall!!

Time for Barn Charm

Its been a little while since I have edited and posted one of my barn pictures.  Darrell and I stopped to take pictures of as many interesting barns we could find on our way to Red Deer a few months back.  So as I get them edited I will post them to Bluff Area Daily, where you can see other {barn charm} photos.

Some curious critters as I was taking my photo..

Lotsa scrappin in the country!

Good scrappin that is!  Jacquie, Heather, and Sheila were back for a girls getaway and a week end of scrapbooking.  Once again, they moved in with all their {stuff} and took over the breakfast room.  I am so glad when we have repeat guests.  You can see the wonderful pages these ladies created last time here.

The lights stayed on until after midnite a few nights in a row and you can see that once again they put their memories down on paper with great ideas, colors, sparkles, embellishments and words.

Heather was working on baby day pages

I like how she incorporated her baby card on the page...

Jacquie has three girls who love to pose for the camera...

Sheila has fun teenagers....

Thanks for booking with us ladies.
See you in April, 2012

We'd love to share our hospitality with you!

Happy Thanksgiving !!

It has been a good week end here at That Country Place!  Both of our college boys were home and of course we enjoyed good food, good company with our dear friends the Andersons, some loud Dutch Blitz games  and I was glad to be in church on Sunday to reflect on what I am thankful for.

I had fun getting the table ready for our meal.

Simple place cards...a circle punch, stamp on the initial, and distress the edges.

This peaceful park bench is across the street from work....

The boys were patient enough with me to take time for a "10 minute" photo shoot after church on Sunday.  We headed to the museum grounds where I have discovered this awesome blue wall!  Love it for a backdrop!  and the tin one is fun as well.  Everyone was hungry, and Ben wanted to get to the motocross track, so the photo snappin was quick!!

Father and sons..

May your week ahead keep you soaring to new heights!  
Have a good one!

Kitchen Roomspiration Bloghop>

It is the last day of the Roomspiration Blog hop that has been going on.  I shared my craft room and my niece's bedroom makeover  in some previous posts, and today it is time for the KITCHEN blog hop.  I just love seeing what other people do with kitchen spaces!  White and modern country is the taste I think I have FINALLY arrived at!!  It can be a process sometimes to find your decorating style, and my hubby doubts me that I will {never} want to change anything in our favorite kitchen space!  but I think he is wrong,,,,I absolutely love our new kitchen!!

A little autumn welcome to you...

You can read all about our kitchen reno here....



This project really started with the idea to remove the chimney that was no longer needed to give us more space on the wall with the appliances.  Every little bit of space helps when you have a small house!

Imagine the breakfast bar in place where the tile and hardwood met, with taking that out and running an island the other way we were able to really open up this part of the house and have the kitchen feel alot bigger as well.

Great plans for this wall!!


Love my pot filler behind the stove top!

Moving the microwave into the island allowed us to do the range hood which is a feature wall of the kitchen now...

There you have it!  Our little, but full of character, kitchen.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!
Both of my "college boys" will be home tomorrow !
Have a great week end!
