Photo Finish Friday

Beach rocks and shells in Mexico.
Quite awesome.

Oh, art history!

Crazy stuff, man.

I might need a door knocker or two or three

Wonderful use of scraps.

I'm thinking of adding this to the wall around the entry door from the garage. It's such a hard working space and the wall is constantly dirty. Thoughts?

Ah, the weekend is here again! It came so fast since there was no school on Monday. I was forever on the wrong day this week due to that. Looking forward to a pajama poker party at the neighbors on Saturday. You? XOXO--Teresa

Kentucky Bags!

Bella + Bed

I love it when we get photos of people with their bags. It's so great to see people using them. It's also fun to see our pet beds in use. If you don't know much about these beds, we make the outsides from fabric that is too thick to be bags and stuff them with scraps from the project. Win win! We donate them to rescues and shelters here in Colorado. One rescue organization in my neighborhood assigns beds to the dogs and when the dogs are adopted the bed goes with them. I love love love that!  Teresa

One last pic from our trip to Mexico. I miss it!
Great upcyclying!

Lovely.

Yum!

I might ask for this for my birthday.

My mom used to make something like this. I should make some of these for a new friend.

Have you heard? Love. Of course.

It's Friday. Last Friday I was on the beach in Mexico celebrating 15 years of Little Girl. Time flies, so very fast. We have a 3 day holiday weekend upon us. My goal is to get all the Christmas decor packed up. I have it all down and scattered in my dining room. Now to get it in bins. Every year I tell myself I'm going to go through it and get rid of things I don't use/need/like, but I wind up getting lazy and just shoving it all back in the bins. Sigh. You? What's going on with you? Big plans for the holiday weekend? XOXO--Teresa


Well, hello!

Hi there! I hope 2017 is treating you right so far. My family and I got back on Saturday from a lovely vacation in Mexico. So beautiful, relaxing and perfect. We were in East Cape which is about an hour north of Cabo San Lucas. It's basically a fishing village of about 1200 people. The locals were so nice and the atmosphere could not have been more friendly and fun. I swear I could not take a bad photo there…
 A couple of shot of our hotel, Las Palmas de Cortez.
We also did 2 days of fishing. Well, the girls and I did 1/2 day of fishing while hubby and Little Man did 2 days.
Caught lots of mahi mahi that we took to a local restaurant to cook for us. They were absolutely delicious!

We did a fun jeeping tour in the mountains to a local orchard. So pretty!

 Got to see this girl ambling up on shore to lay her eggs. YAY!
 Big Girl, Little Man and Hubby all went paddle boarding one day. Isn't is beautiful?
 The obligatory feet/ocean shot…
 Little Girl turned 15 while we were there! Love her so much.
The restaurant in the hotel, pretty much out our front door. Great piƱa coladas! Notice the cow in the lower left. I was on the beach and saw something walking towards me, it was a HUGE bull!
Considering the wind and general Colorado weather at the moment, kinda wishing I was back on the beach! I was able to read 4 books on vacation. Sigh. Teresa

Happy New Year!

Happy happy and the best of new years to all of you! I will be taking a little bloggy break. See you next week! Teresa and everyone at Green Bag Lady
