I made this swag using scrapbook paper and iron on letters, then copied it onto cardstock and outlined it with german glitter.  TIP:  No one can have enough german glitter - love it!!!  My grandkids even ask for glitter on their artwork (ages 4 and 8).

Check out this one lane bridge, it connects Texas and Oklahoma just past Denison, on a back road of course.  We were out checking garage sales and came upon this wonderful piece of history.  Thought it was way cool, so of course we had to cross over and back.  It made up for that garage sale listing that was closed when we got there. 
Gotta wait your turn to get on the bridge, amazing - this is actually a long bridge crossing Red River.
Thought you might enjoy reading the history of the bridge.  I love this kind of stuff!

The gardening season is finally here.

I love the lines on the leaves of this hosta, also the white outline on the leaves just draw the eye.  Now to keep the snails/slugs away from it.
I planted this clematis last spring, it didn't make any show at all last year, however this year it came out and showed it's beautiful colors.
Another clematis  bloom, the clematis are fast becoming one of my favorites!
There's a bud on my new clematis vine, when I planted it, it was just a little root piece, one that comes in a package with a picture.  No matter that it is small this year, it will grow into its own.
The clematis is so pretty with the huge purple blooms, I waited to see it all through the cold winter.
