On my last post I hinted about a RAK that I had received and I wanted to share it with you.I am so sorry that it has taken me so long to get it posted but there will be more about that a bit later.Let's get on with the good stuff. As some of you know it has been a rough summer and I haven't been around much ,well when sweet Carol of Firecracker Kid read my story she decided to make me smile.LOL! Boy did she ever do a good job too.Please click the link to check out the wonderful wooden items that she and her husband create! They are a very talented couple.She sent me one of her candle boards and I so wish I was better at photography so I could do the piece justice.It is fantastic the color and the textures on this piece are amazing.Shoot just look at the pic and you will see what I mean.
See what I mean ...Fantastic!Now look at a close up of the top ..
Well there is a saying around here that the road to heck(go ahead and laugh at me for not saying the true word.LOL!)is paved with good intentions.Well if that is the case I am in some deep do winky cause my intentions were to post the candle board the day after I got it that and I wanted to do a blog post at least once a week.Well as you see, I have failed miserably. But in my defense I have good
Reason number 2: The week of Thanksgiving was spent listening to backhoes and the like as our septic system had failed.Oh my gosh what a mess, I am thankful though that it is fixed.It was a long week of not being able to use water while they were here working on it.Next Spring will be spent replacing and rebuilding my flower gardens and berry vines.Seems like the inspector decided I didn't them anymore as they were in the way of where the pipes needed to go. Something to look forward to and plan over the winter,I guess.
Well I apologize for the long post and my absence in blog land.Tomorrow hubby and I are off to Lexington to take my FIL to the VA hospital .He is having some blood pressure issues and such.Maybe I will find some goodies to share. Have a blessed day and remember that there is a smile out there no matter what happens.Friends always seem to find a way to remind you of that fact.Hugs,Jen
