This old tire was at my daddy's house and I just couldn't stand the thought of it being thrown away-mama always planted some kind of flowers in it when she was alive. Its hard to see the plants but those Impatiens just came out of no where (I guess a bird flew by). Yes, I am a hillybilly since I was born and live in TN!
Hi dahtzu, I have 2 more pictures to post that is made from a recycled item-I thought I posted them on this forum but I can't find where they ended up at. That's nothing new to me 'cause I never know if I'm coming or going; I've been working in Impatien seeds this evening after gathering 4 o'clock seeds. I am really enjoying Dave's Garden site and did my 1st seed this week-I'm wanting to have a area in my 2 acre yard next year that is just Columbines. This was not a good spring or summer for me and my plants as I had to be away from home alot due to my daddy's cancer but I am sure next year will be better.
Digger9083, I think she is 'cause she loved flowers and was very creative when it came to dealing with flowers. I'm still trying to find the other 2 pictures I posted this evening-don't know where they ended up at; I will just repost them tomorrow when I get my desktop computer going again. I'm still fighting with this laptop but atleast with it I can be in the same room with my family.
Hi digger, so good to see you here.
Boopsie, I'm sorry about your Dad having cancer. That is such a scary disease. My baby Sister has cancer and we have just learned that it is growing. I'm scared of loosing her yet I know she is ready. Her words are "I'm ready to go to Heaven any time God wants me" I'm selfish and want to keep her here, she is so much in my heart, it hurts just thinking about her.
Dahtzu, I know how you feel! Mama died from cancer in 2004, I found out I have Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia in 2006 (I'm in remission and still take a chemo pill daily), then in Feb. this year daddy was gonna get his esophagus stretched and it couldn't be done because of a tumor. He has had 35 radiation treatments, 2 chemo treatments (he just can't tolerate them because he is so small), the tumor is almost gone, he is up to 86 lbs. (reg. wt. is 105) we will find out Sept. 1, if any cancer cells are still in the small tumor. I have been with him more since mama died than I have my husband and yes I am always tired and sleepy.
Dahtzu , thinking bout you yesterday , wondered where you went . good to see you ,guess we've been on diferent threads . Have you done any glass painting ?
Boopsie , you have to take time somewhere for yourself , you can't get rundown .
Boopsie welcome and bless you...was my daddy's only caretaker and know the importance of taking care of yourself...course i learned the hard way as i learn most things!!
love your flowerpot..i embrace all things redneck...jiffy-pop hanging on kitchen wall (redneck fire alarm) to my bed made of "found" cedar-posts!!
if anyone offers to help you in any way...let them!! they get blessed, too.
LOL, digger you wouldn't believe this in a million years if you didn't know me. Just today my Sister( not the one with cancer) came over and I had some of the paint you sent to me out and told her where I got it. She had never seen glass paint. I have used many colors of the paint and will never ever see it without thanking you for sending it to me.
J2222, daddy cut the tire himself years ago with a knife he said it was a hard job and it was before the tires started having belts in them. I hope he has more things over there that I can use for pots.
Boopsie , get as many of those memories as you can .
Dahtzu , Post us a pic of something .Would love to see it . I offered an item to another D G er in graditude for help on a thread and it was in line with something they were intrested in , I thought, and never even got an ans back from my offer . Rude , but it's their loss, right ?
digger I cannot imagine anyone not answering. You are so right, it her loss. She has no idea how generous you are. On DG, I think there are many friendly, generous people. I love sharing what I have with others. LOL maybe I will postthe thingy I painted...if I can muster up the courage.
I found it in the closet.
Faye's masterpiece...drum roll. lol
This was a framed piece of clear glass, could have been used as a table top. I got the piece fron a yard sale so this is what I chose to paint on. It is not free hand. I put the pattern on the top of the glass and painted the underside.
I can't believe you had THAT in a closet . It should be hanging in a window , or out on your patio . If you don't like that , then you can send it to me , I'll proudly display it , it's beautiful . What were you thinking , girlfriend ?
She should make us both something , as talented as she is . That was a big project . She could sell those at the markets . Happy birthday to you ,Happy birthday to you , Happy birthday dear GA girl ,Happy birthday to you . Yea , looks like we made another one .
Dahtzu, it is beautiful and I love hummingbirds! You need that hanging on the wall so everyone who see it can enjoy it.
My grannys birthday is Sept.1 she died in 1990 and I miss her so much, I was her favorite!
