Country Living

I love the country, now I say that and I am kinda sissy-fied.  I mean I don't like to walk in the tall grass and stuff cause of ticks, and I'm not one for walking out in the desert cause of snakes and poisonous stuff.  I don't like to get my hands in dirty stuff, and I don't like germy things.  But I consider myself a country gal.  I am more comfortable in a pair of jeans and boots, although now it is too hot for boots, so I'll settle for flip-flops, or if my back gets acting up I have to throw on my sneakers.  One of them has a little lift in the it to help my old hips balance out...aint it fun getting old?  And I need to ask my doc about menopause, cause I wonder if I have not been having some hot flashes lately. Yeah its been 115 degrees but I still feel warm at it seemed like it was my legs....maybe it was cause I had on jeans....

So back to the country, there are some awesome new country-ish sets in the catalog and one is even a level 1 Hostess set.  When I was at my sister Jacqui's house a few years ago I found these cute little books at the dollar store, they have the best store there called "Dollar-ama" they have some kick butt deals.  So I bought these little books and never did anything with them.  Except put them inside the cute dollar boxes that I got there too...ha!  So when I was doing the sepia technique I was playing around with this set, and then I was like what will I do with this cute image now that I got it colored all up? So I slapped it on the little baby book and tied some black gingham on the edge, and lookee at the little bookee!

Here is the rest of the set, and with a $150.00 order (plus tax and shipping) you could get this set for free....and also $15.00 in free merchandise too...not too shabby eh?

So talking about country stuff I lived in the country growing up, surrounded by farms and stuff, but at the same time things still make me go hmmm??? Eric had the movie The Barnyard on one day and the main character is called Otis and he was a boy cow and he was black and white which are the milk cows right? And he had udders, now why does the boy cow have udders?  I mean a few times during the movie I think he used them in a funny way (I didn't watch the whole movie) but it left me wondering. Any help would be appreciated...ha!

Well I have a swap to get finished, so I will sign off and call it a night!

Have a great Wednesday............2 more weeks and I leave for Convention, I am so totally trying to wrap my head around that...holy moly! Lots to do before then!

Thanks so much for stopping in!
