Random Beauty

After posting about my Ugly Room I felt kind of bad. I mean, it is true, I do have the ugliest room in universe, and maybe the ugliest house. But I didn't mean to sound like a whiner either, and then there is this...

The back yard in summer. This is why we don't bother with curtains on the windows.
That ugly 70s place we call home. All 8 of us. (yes it is true, 8 is enough!)

Nature Girl.

Three cousins eating watermelon and swinging on the porch.

My daisies got a dusting of snow on the last day of summer last year.

Time to hibernate. I have lots of sewing projects and don't go out when it looks like this.

The baby boys take a break from fighting over their toys.

Our hand me down tramp arrived on our porch one day when Mr. B was cleaning up his yard and happened to notice that his son Sam had outgrown it and we had a bunch of kids hanging around here. Thanks, Mr. B!

Anna's Hummingbird.

The Rainbow Creek Kids at play.

The ugly room transformation is coming along. I have my tables primed and ready for painting, can't wait to see how they turn out. Mr. Rainbow Creek is off for a few days to help me move furniture and we are going to go looking for used cabinets at the Habitat Store to try to build a custom desk to replace the ugliest desk ever. He is kind of reluctant to get into my home decorating schemes, but if I take him out for a beer and pizza and talk it up he usually sees things my way. He is kind of pushover when you ply him with a little beer and pizza. We have actually done tons of remodeling projects together and we have fun. He just forgets how much fun it is if I let him sit around and get too comfortable for too long.
