Kung Fu~Flowers~Redos

Hi!! I hope everyone has been enjoying their week ~ mine has been pretty good here. I took the kids to see Kung Fu Panda 2 at the little community theatre here in town yesterday (it was only $8 for all 3 of us to get in!! whoo hoo!). It was really cute! If anyone has little ones & you haven't went to see this movie ~ you should! We all really liked it!

Other than that, not a whole lot of anything has been happening around here. Still being lazy & enjoying the summer vacation time with my son.  The hubby is still not smoking! Whoo hoo! It's been a week & he's done really good so far ~ I'm very proud of him! This weekend is our "kid-free" weekend again & he has asked me to go "night" fishing with him! I was shocked! He never asks me so of course I said yes!! I'm sure I'll be bored out of my mind in about an hour or two but at least he wanted me to go! :O) Makes me feel all special!! LOL
I got two redos done this week ~
the pics aren't the greatest ~ but they both are just black. I like them a lot more now ~ I almost left the long candle holder how it was but I have a lot of wood paneling in my house & it was all the SAME shade of it so it got painted

I'm going to try to work on a few more redos this weekend~ still not feeling much like painting anything. Kinda in a funk ~ I feel like a need a "change". Do you ever get like that?!? I seem to get like that at least once every 6 months or so & I don't know why. I think I've got some gypsy blood in me or something! lol Sometimes it's as simple as a new haircut to cure me ~ sometimes it's more than that, so we'll just have to wait & see. Hopefully I'll figure it out soon :O)!

Here's a few pics of some flowers in my yard
my black eyed susans are just starting to bloom
bee-baum -it's really cool looking - I tried to get a good close up but they were all blurry -this was the best I could do
my purple cone flowers are blooming too! these are my favorites! I just LOVE them!
this lil flower is entwined in with my purple cone flowers ~ I wondered where it had gone ~ my mom had given me some in the fall & I never can remember where I plant anything so I must've planted it where my purple cone flowers were ~ oh well! I'll try to move it this fall :)

Well that's all I've got today. Hopefully next week I'll have more to share! I hope everyone has a great weekend! Stay safe & do something F-U-N!!

Your redo's are great Rachel!! I thought I liked the long candle holder as it was...but your redo is much, much better!! Cool beans!! And your flowers are looking great! What little we had blooming is quickly succumbing to the torrential rains...just emptied the rain gauge again...another 4.25"....Hope Angie sends that duck tape and styro soon - gotta get that ark built!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Good for the Mr.! I'm proud of him!
Love the redos/makeovers. I love that long candle holder.
I've been with some of my grandkids for 3 days and I am ready to get back to grown up things, like painting!
Have fun fishing!

Love the makeovers, especially the ladle. Very nice. And the candlestick does look better painted black. Stands out more.
Going fishing in the dark can be fun. I just hang out and listen to the bullfrogs talk back and forth.
Good quality time.
Have a nice weekend
Country at heart

Love your photos! Yes we all can get in a "funk" from time to time can't we? New "do" or move stuff around in the house, anything to make one change their outlook...Fishing in the dark sounds fun.....
