Welcome!

I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

Haven't Zinnia In A While!

Today began uneventfully....made my way to work at my little shop, Dwellings, around 8:45 this morning. Helped son and daughter in law unload their purchases made on the Longest Yard Sale...from Meridian, MS to Michigan. (They only made it into Alabama.) My friend, Libby, stopped by the shop and much to my delight we sneaked away to Hattiesburg for some light shopping. Made a few purchases and late this afternoon I finished a small project I had started earlier this week.
At Trees 'n Trends in Hattiesburg, I found some wonderfully priced zinnias. I needed a summer wreath and since I already had the wreath and the black and white ribbon, all I purchased was four bunches of flowers for $4. The wreath had a birds nest left on from its previous incarnation.
Now, I don't know if you can stand this next part of the porch re-do...because I think you will be sooooo jealous of my SteinMart finds. I had painted the rockers black and was just ready to re-paint when "what to my wondering eyes should appear"? But the cutest outdoor pillows I have ever encountered!
                                               I told you! Aren't they absolutely wonderful?!
Now, somehow I felt something was missing. There is a large space above the ferns between the two rockers. What to do? What to do? (Picture light bulb going off in head and me snapping my fingers!) Sister Leslie had made me a really cute "M" for Mother's Day. Perfect! Tape on a dowel and insert it into the fern and viola!! Problem solved in a very cute way! (Thanks, Little Sister.)
                                                I am a happy camper! And so to celebrate, I am
joining Beverly's Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound...please, join us there for all things PINK!

Happy Pink Saturday! I love your summer wreath and those pillows are beautiful. I'd love those rockers on my front porch.*smiles* Everything looks so lovely.

I always thought you were the crafty one but Leslie's "M" looks great!!! Your mother and I spent many hours sitting in rockers on my front porch but they didn't look as good as yours!
