My first job putting on shingles!!!( and my last)



I wanted to show you my first shingling job...it was a small job but it had a great impact on the finished product. My sister gave me her little storage shed that looks like an outhouse. I decided to put new cedar shingles on it and I think it turned out great!!! Dh showed me the ropes and I went from there...what do you think?





I have been working on getting things ready for the graduation party this week. I wanted to share a few pictures of our bonus room but I guess that will be later since my dd is sleeping in there and I can't get the pictures. I am happy with the way it is turning out but you may be surprised when you see the pictures.
If you have been following my blog then you kinda know the style of decorations of my home. This room is a real change from that style. I wanted something a little more bright and clean...a little french country garden. You will have to come back to see if I got that finished product.
For those of you who wanted to see more of the dresses from prom...I am having a hard time getting them to load onto blogger but when I get it figured out I will show the full length that you asked to see.
Today we are headed to the college. My middle daughter is being inducted into the National Honor Society today. We are proud parents. She is a senior in high school but has been taking classes at the college all year....she has been doing a wonderful job!!!! I will also try to share those pictures too!!!
Well, I am off for now to finish drying my hair, although, it is raining again and it will just make my hair curly... I was going to straighten it for today..well the best plans can always be changed!!!! Blessing to each of you!

It looks fantastic! But from what I have observed(my DH-not a real handyman!), shingling is very hard to do and hard on the hands, as well. Congrats on a job well done and done well! Linda ★
