Kerrie's Dancing feet


Don't forget to hop over to Beverly's at 
to see what others have posted!

Be creative!!  My youngest daughter and I have a tradition of buying crazy socks and slippers for each other.  A couple of yrs ago, she sent me these slipper socks, keeping one of each color and sending me one of each color.  I like wearing them in the bathroom and dancing on the slippery floor while curling my hair.  So I got creative and this was the result-LOL!  (turn up the sound)

 Being creative at my back door, hung a bird plaque to the left and draped fabric Wisteria on a wrought iron grill work piece that I bought in St. Augustine Florida years ago, on the right side of the door.  I thought about spray painting the grill work but cannot decide yet-:)

This little birdhouse was given to me by my son a long time ago in SC.  It has been repaired many times and this time I repaired the roof by cutting a sheet of metal from a soda can and nailing it to the house.  Worked great!  The squirrel won't stop sitting on the top of it though and it falls from the fence so I need to put a support under it so his fat little self won't weight it down!
This is my new front porch, I am loving it.  My handy man did a great job and his grandson worked with him this summer.

Below is a close up of the Spanish Grill work with Wisteria. 

 John and I live right next door to each other which makes it very handy to be a couple-ha!  He decided we needed a veggie garden between the yards and made this raised bed.  It has onions, shallots, leaf lettuce, Kale and even carrots in it!

 Below is my painting in the style of Bob Ross.  I love his style.  I did this one in about a half hour or so and John liked it so much that I gave it to him for his birthday July 16th.  I really need to paint more!

John watering our happy little garden.  Central NY has had very little rain this year so the plants are a little stunted in growth, poor babies!
And look at Nature's beautiful paintbrush on this Maple Leaf!!  So, so pretty.  I wish now I had tried to "hammer" the image onto a linen napkin before it dried out but I will try that next time for sure!!

Thank you so much for coming and do come again soon to visit and leave a comment as they make my day!

My crafty heart to yours!

Hello friends and followers!  So sorry that I have not been posting as I should.  Time has gotten away from me for many reasons and I am hoping to get back into my weekly posts.

Sharing from Design Peak this beautiful string of beaded flowers!   
So beautiful!  Click on the link for directions.

It reminded me of a candle or lampshade doily that I made years ago crocheting with pearls:

 I found the pattern on one of those free pattern clips near the yarn dept. in Walmart.  Just came across it again and will be making more, soooo pretty!

and one more idea for you today, doilies on candle holders:
 I had seen so many of these purchased doilies on Mason jars on line and loved the idea so used some vintage ones I had laying around and put them on jars I had in the cupboard.  The yellow candle I bought in the dollar store one time.  I later added a tied ribbon to each jar lip.  Just love the look!

Come back soon, thank you for visiting and please leave a comment to make my day!  Blessings  and happy crafting to you all!
