Teasing Can be SOOO much fun!!! AND A BIG THANK YOU!!!

So for me....hehehehehehe...teasing on my up coming giveaway is fun, for ME.... not so much everyone else? Or so many hints of what it MIGHT BE!!!!!
So today is a HOT ONE!!! And HUMID!!! So I took advantage of outside feeling like a oven and did some painting and grungied up a few things.....

One thing is for sure! One of these items will be in my giveaway away box!!!!! Now if you haven't had a chance to enter my giveaway, I hope you will consider it! IF I get 75 comments/entries I will pick 2 names!!! So if I did this right.... here is the link to leave a comment and see what else you have to do to get a 2nd entry!!! I am picking a winner/winners on August 1st!

I was popular with the mailman on Friday! I received a fun thank you from Karen over at My Colonial Home... WOW!!! So wasn't necessary, but I have always loved her needle work and so lucky to have one now!!!

Karen and I were talking off line about these 2 dolls she had that had no details.. She was just going to give them to me... BUT I said, I would finish them for her!!!! As long she likes my style of dolls, I would be happy to do that for her!
So they came for a visit... I put on my thinking cap... Finished them off in true OLM fashion and sent them back to their home!!!! They missed Karen!

Then I received this, WOW!!!

Fall can't come fast enough! Between this and the quilted runner Becky did for me, I so can't wait to put them out!!!

Then that should of been more then enough, but a pantry towel!!!!

AND this little pantry bag with some fun prim labels!!! Thank you Karen, really I think I got the better deal!?!?!!?!? Love them all!

Then in the spirit of my giveaway I was going to talk about something else that makes my heart skip a beat! I had a plan... Then this happened on Saturday and just needed to share!!!!

My brother and his family came over for a fish fry. Boys went to Canada last summer and we still had some fish to cook so we did!......BUT...then the kids wanted to play with water balloons....then out came the water balloon launcher! This is so much fun...We have had many years of fun and even a broke window with these!

Big and little kids couldn't get enough! Kept trying to shot them straight up in the air to see how high they would go......

But the ladders weren't good enough!!! Steven had a bright idea, and of course hubby thought it was a great one????

Knuckles might not of been to happy with their decision! But lets get on the roof and see how well this works????? So what makes my heart skip a beat, my idiots up on the roofs... Not a good skip?!!?!!?

There they go...there was more pictures, but OMG! TOO funny! and thankfully no one fell off the roof! Many water balloons where used Saturday night! LOL! Have a great night... off to bring in my dried body parts and decide what to create next! OLM

Good to see somebody working on their craft. I am thinking so hard, imagining what everything will be--looking forward to seeing who wins and how they will display.....
All I get done is some cross stitch. It is so hot out..... I hate even letting the dogs out. BECAUSE IT LETS HOT AIR IN!!!!
