A Little Something and an Award!!!

Good Morning! This morning we have some thunderstorms rolling through ushering in our Indian Summer which will fade by weeks end. When the weekend arrives, we should not be surprised to see S**WFL***S again! Wow this crazy weather!

I have been busy working on a few projects, one I can show you. The others are for a swap and I really want her to be surprised so those projects will have to wait to be shown. This little frame with hook was on clearance at Michael's. It is so cute! I decided to use it for our dog's leash. We can never seem to remember where it was last put (it's not used much). So now Cocoa has her own hook. The paper is old Stampin' Up and the letter is from a board book kit from the Dollar Tree. This project cost about $2.25. Not bad at all!!!

Love the hook! You will be happy to have your doggy leash at hand. I have mine on hooks on the back porch.

I can't believe your weather but then again it's the time of year for stuff like that. I'd love some snow :)

Have a great day!

Dawn said...

Wow, it must be pretty cold for that *S* word. Last night it was 20ยบ when I went to bed, but it warmed up by this morning.

I like the frame with the hook. Nice work!!

take care,

Joy said...

Kim, your hook is sharp!

You make the prettiest things! And it's practical, too. Can't beat something that combines both of those qualities in my book. Thanks for sharing.

Kim I love the hook. It looks su cute We are supposed to get some of that S stuff this week too. I'll believe it when I see it. It was 78 yesterday. Weird weather for this time of year.

I love the first snowfall, after that not so much. I do like a white Christmas, but we hardly ever have one.
I love the name Cocoa! I also love a bargain and the frame with hook is what I would call a bargain!

Hey Kim!
We're feeling a 'cold" pinch too! But I'm so excited about it. It's only 66 here right now and it's been raining on and off all weekend til now. Of course nothing really measurable, just enough to get the cars dirty, but it's something :0).
I think that little dog leash hook is rather cute. You are so creative! I think I may attempt something similar and hang them in my laundry area/service porch.

Hi Kim! I can't believe its the middle of the week! I've finished one side of the basement!lol I'm jumping all over my house working a little here and there and feel like it's going to never end!lol Also I've been going through craft books and that isn't helping my brain!!!lol I came across a floorcloth I painted 8yrs ago and that got me thinking too! I really need fresh air I think! I'm waiting for laundry so I came on for a few minutes and was glad to see you stopped in! Hope you are having better luck finishing things than I am..I think a candy bar for dessert might help!!!lol Have a great afternoon - Sincerely, Jeannette
