A crowded nest is best- freebie

It's Friday...the first day in darned hot here in the pacific northwest. 
I thought this chick would be fun to add to this saying.
Sometimes I just love a simple stitchery to work on...super easy and super quick. 
Copy and save.
The bees are also hot and getting a little angry, watch out for them swarming and trying to find water sources.
Time to eat up some watermelon and stay cool! 
Let's hear it for August!

A message from Lucky...

This is a message from my cat Lucky.
He is full of wisdom as you can see.

He is also that cat that runs like a bullet if your happen to sneeze.
On another note...our garden is going crazy....I have never had such a green thumb.
The blossoms are so hug and vivid! 
I have really cool gourds ...they are birdhouse type gourds....this is its blossom.

The label on the little start said cucumber.....yeah right!
Looks like pumpkins.....which is fine with me!

Here is another cucumber.....nice isn't it.
I will go somewhere else to buy starts....ha ha ha.

I guess my hubby will have to wait for next year to have home grown cucumbers!

This Purple sign is constantly pinned on pinterest....I need to turn off my notification emails....too many pins from this.
They are easy to email comes instantly after you buy it and you just click on the download link.

These make great gifts and are perfect for your home decor.
I often just frame them in a document frame or an 8 x 10 from the dollar store....super easy quick gift.
It is really nice when the person you are giving to has everything and you don't know what to get them.
I print on either white cardstock, presentation paper, matte photo paper and glossy works great too.
These are not meant for resale however.
Just letting you know.
Another thing is that they are a pdf file (adobe reader opens it- free program) and they are not available in jpg.
They are meant to be signs.
They are great for holiday celebrations and parties.
