Dogwood Weekend

Hi friends!

Happy Tuesday! I hope y'all had a good day.

If you follow me on Twitter, you might know I work for a museum in Atlanta. This weekend the museum had a booth at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival - and I was there working it on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was such a beautiful weekend and we had so much fun! I find it very amusing that I get paid to do this...

And help make this...

It's a rag rug flag, woven on a Friendly Loom, using small strips of fabric. It will be sent to our Adopted Troop which has just been deployed to Afghanistan. This makes my heart happy - my favorite part of my job.

We saw tons and tons of people and had so much fun at the same time! The Dogwood Festival is a very large Art Festival. I was so excited to bring home this adorable outdoor piece...

So as you can see, it was a great weekend - even though I was working.

P.S. You won't see a whole lot of huge projects on the house for the next couple of weeks. We had a pipe burst UNDER the slab of our house and it is quite an expensive fix. We are trying to do a "band aid" fix for now, but it is taking some time.

Two of our bathrooms are out of order right now. The only working one is up on the third floor of the house... our bedroom is on the first floor. You can imagine how much fun that must be for us! HA! But we are counting our blessings, at least we have running water in the kitchen and ONE bathroom! It's teaching me patience. HA!

Hope you guys have a great week! Talk soon, friends!
