Get R Done Friday


It's Get R Done Friday.

Check out our projects,
then get on over to
Expressly Corgi
to see what else is going on.


This weeks Get R Done is actually my husband
getting a big project done.

He's been working on the fountain on our patio.

He leveled it all out,

Dug a hole,




built a flagstone wall around it,
and lined it with heavy plastic from work,
and put the fountain back in place,
and filled the 'moat' with water.

Isn't it great?!!


And after all that work,
he rested.




Here is a wee bit of a Get R Done I did.

I've had this simple black pure for over a year.
I kept looking for just the right trim to jazz it up.
(sorry, I know this is hard to see.)


It suddenly hit me that i had two of these
sparkling beauties i had bought at garage slaes.

So, I hand sewed one on,

and,

wallah!!!
F A N C Y !!

That's it for this week.

I love what you did to that purse! It sure did give it some life that I needed! And your fountain turned out great too!

You had better get your eyes taken care of girl! It takes a lot of time getting things done but it sure is worth being able to see things in the morning!

Get R Done!
