My Home

This is my home. It's an old farm house. It's kind of charming, but it needs a lot of TLC. We've painted and put in new flooring in part of the house. It just takes time and money... I've got the time, but the money... not so much. When you have four kids (3 at home) they kind of like to eat so I spend a lot of money on groceries every week.
Sometimes I'd like to move to a brand new house with sparkling clean base boards, big walk-in closets and a jacuzzi tub. But... I think I would miss my cute little house. Actually it's not little. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 baths and it's about 2000 sq. feet. Not bad! It's also on 6 acres. If we tried to buy a new house with all that... well, there's no way. I might have a walk-in closet, but it would probably be as big as the bedrooms. At least old houses have big rooms. I also wouldn't have my big, wonderful front porch with my porch swing, wicker chairs and plants that I've planted, watered and loved.
I think I'll keep my charming little (big) house~

Figuring out this Blog Thing

I'm trying to figure out how to make my blog look brighter and prettier and add links and pictures and music. I brightened up the font colors and made the fonts bigger. I also added a link to my etsy store and to some blogs and websites that I like to visit. It may take me awhile and maybe some help from the teens around this house, but I'll get my blog looking like I want it to look.

Have a happy day ~* Lora

~pEaCE, lOvE & fLoWeRs~

I love flowers, hearts, peace signs and colorful seed beads!

This is my new memory wire seed bead bracelet. I just love it! It makes me happy. I've finally started making my Spring-y, colorful jewelry. I'm done with the dark colors of Winter for now!
In a few weeks I'm planning on having my Spring Jewelry Sale/Open House. I had one in November and it was very successful, but mostly it was just fun because I got to hang out with other woman and gab, eat and talk about my jewelry. Fun!

Please leave a comment to say hi~

Tootsies and Flowers (weeds)

I took this picture a couple of weeks ago. I liked it so much I made it my new icon on flickr. Hope everyone is taking their shoes off and letting their toes enjoy the springtime!
