Update on my Valentine Banner....

      I wanted to blog before now but life happens so I just now got a chance! My sweet great-niece was with us on Friday, so I got to spend so special time with her and her Mom. We all had a great time together, and hopefully we'll see them again soon! I made some delicious oatmeal cookies and I wanted ya'll to see my mixing stand. It will be posted below. I really enjoy using my mixer since all I have to do is pull it out and then up. I had the builder to make it that way and he said that was the first one he ever built. He did a great job on it! The other thing I wanted to share is the banner. It is still a little curled up on the edges so I have it laying under heavy books in order to straighten it out. Do any of you have a Cameo and have this problem with the paper curling up after pulling it from the sticky paper? So far, that is the only drawback I've experienced using it.
      I've had a lot of views on my blog and even have a few new followers! Ya'll say the nicest things in your comments! I could just give you all a big ole' hug! I really appreciate you reading this blog and it really blesses me when you leave a comment! There are so many talented people in blog world and I'm thankful to get to read about your gifts and talents. I even try to copy some of them in my own decorating, crafting, and cooking. Ya'll keep on writing and I'll keep on reading and commenting when I can! Love ya bunches! Blessings from Bama
Love my mixing stand!

A Copy-cat recipe. Tastes almost just like them!

Trying to capture the beautiful sunset.

Pink sky at night....

See how it's curled.

The font is too small and dainty for this.

The font show up nicely against the pink, though. I'm going to change this.


  1. Love your mixer stand! So convenient! The cookies look yummy!

  2. Love the stand, and the mixer. Mmmm, you're making me want oatmeal cookies.

  3. Oh I so want that kitchen aid cabinet like you have. My friend has one and it is so neat!!I have the Kitchen Aide but have to tote it out of the cabinet each time I use it and that thing is heavy!!

  4. Hello,
    Just signed up to be your newest follower!! Love your blog, thank you for visiting me so that I found yours:) Your cookies look yummy!! Have a wonderful evening,

  5. Hi Bama Girl, you were so sweet to visit and leave a comment. Necessity is the motherhood of invention. Your stand is gorgeous. In our first house I had the builder put a built in cutting board in the counter by the sink. He was reluctant but did it anyway. Then he thought it was a great idea and started putting them in his newly built houses. I have four chickens and they give the two of us more than enough eggs. The neighbors are always delighted to get the extras and my relatives too. Also, you could donate eggs to the soup kitchens, etc.

  6. Thanks so much for awarding me the Liebster Award! I feel honored! I have passed along the award and you may enjoy reading about it...
