Happy Homemaker in Texas

 Welcome to the weekly party 

The party is hosted by Sandra over at Dairy of a Stay at Home Mom.

Here are the prompts Sandra provides . . .

The weather . . . 

It was a bit cooler for a few days but the weather guys are predicting more 90's up to 94. 

Thank goodness we have ac! 

And thank goodness Ida missed us! 

Praying for those on its path!

Something fun to share . . .

Fun little libraries.  These are all over town. 

Does your town have Little Libraries?  

Date Night . . . 

We had so much fun Saturday night. 

I took this photo at the end of our evening.  We were both tired. 

We walked 4 blocks looking in shops and Art Galleries. 

It was an event called Art Walk.  All the Galleries and Antique Shops are open from 6-8 for Art Walk.   They serve free wine and some have food.  

I had to get a picture of MaMa's lamp.  She had a set of two.  Not with frilly Shades though.  This one was marked $59.00.

On my crafting table  

A cluster with 5 items.  I think. Lavender paper cut with scallop scissors,  real cool green stuff came on a spool from Kroger.  It's not ribbon.  Text from a book, a lace applique and a flower on top. 

Yep that's 5.  I am working on an altered book with a fb group.  Each day we get a prompt.  

In the garden  

I don't really have a garden only the end of our porch.  I feel Blessed that we are  in apartment #2 so no one passes our door.  

I got two long flower boxes on our Curb Shopping last week.  

I found Dianthus for $1.35.  I bought 3 White and 3 Red.  

The clerk asked if I had coupons I said no. We chatted and she ended up giving me a 10 percent discount. 

From the camera   

Oh my goodness.  Such yumminess! 
I found these at Kroger on sale so I wanted to try them for the tea Party.  So. So. Good.  I was surprised to find the cream filled. Yum! 


Thanks for joining me for a peek into my weeks plans.  And a little of this and that. 

Linking with Sandra and all the regular parties.

    1. Thanks for stopping in. I try and visit you. Sometimes the links don't work.

  2. Glad you are safe from Ida. I'm finding it funny about naming the room... maybe I should do that!
