Hello all crickets!!!

Get it? You know that sound when you say something in then in your mind you hear nothing but crickets ? :) Well, this is like my what 4th post? In my defense , I have been focusing on family "stuff". You know , the word "stuff" encompasses a lot of things doesn't it? I've really worked on some neat projects, but can I find my cable to upload my pics from my camera??? That would be a big fat NO! I am going to do better, keep searching and hopefully show some of them soon. I've really been focused on frugal diva living and have reframed it as a challenge / scavenger hunt to look for the best deals. Hope everything is well with you, may God continue to hold you and carry you close. Hugs- Angela

Labor Day weekend!

Well, I can honestly say that I haven't started out with a bang with this blogging stuff!!! I truly admire the many talented women who do this on a daily basis:) I have a lot of things I think about in my head and say,"self, that would be a cute bloggy post", then when I sit down I hear the crickets .....wait, just pushed one of those crickets aside, I will show them who is boss!!! I am half way computer savvy, but sheesh, I can't even get my layout the way I want it! I will just have figure all this stuff out, it won't beat me! I did the coolest project the other day, did I take a before Anyways, it was a HUGE grape vine wreath, with all the wonderful 90's floral pink and green floral decor and ribbon. I found it at Goodwill for .99...cha$$ching...she scores!! I spray painted it gold ( after taking many floral wires, and saying  words I can not post) took some pheasant feathers , grabbed some magnolia leaves  , painted them gold and assembled it all together. Viola'...looks all fallish (is that a word?). Until next time, hugs!!! Angela

Hello !

Welcome! I'm so excited that you found your way here :) Ok, a little about me, I am a former Victoria Secret's supermodel ..ok, ok, ok   LOL...hopefully made you laugh :) A little about me, I live in the South(Dublin, GA). True Southern woman and LOVE it (except for the heat that does nothing for my hairand makes me glisten and I must say I wished I had stock in Secret Deodorant )! I love sweet tea (hello, I live in the South) my family/friends and I am addicted to spray paint!  It is unbelievable the amount of things you can spray paint and change things up in an instant.  My house is 'homey and cozy" (aka small but wonderful )and I'm really enjoying doing small projects with big impact . Also known as a Frugal Diva(George Washington flinches at the light when my wallet opens), I embrace finding deals on everything from food to home decor. I can't wait to get your opinions while redoing portions of the house :) I love mixing old pre-loved items (like Linen) and just making it work with everyday decor.

I started this blog for fun because I have enjoyed  reading so many other amazing women's blogs all over the internet . There are so many cool things like DIY projects, inspirations, recipes, etc that I have learned from others and I wanted to jump on the 'Blog' bandwagon and enjoy the ride!!

Ok, a little about myself, I thank our Lord everyday for the opportunity and blessings he has provided. Additionally, I am a wife with an amazing husband who doesn't fuss about his "honey do" list. Three amazing children (Jackson-13 , Kristina-20 and my bonus son Josh-11 ). This blog will be a journey of laughter, life so jump on board and we will face it together. Hugs~ Angela
