This summer, on our way home, we toured two of the biggest plantations in LA. I was fully intrigued. The stories of the lives of all the people that lived in all these plantations were so fascinating. At one time there were 400 plantations. Now there are less than ten. It is so sad. These are amazing pieces of history. What I found out, in our history lessons, was that most of the plantations were built from everything on that land.  Enjoy the Pictures.

Button Napkin Holders

I have always loved buttons. I remember as a kid my mom would take us to the salvation army stores in Bolivar. I would just search through all the old shirts to see if there was any cool buttons. Have you ever been to a button shop? It is amazing! The design on each one are all so colorful. Here are a few ideas on making button napkin holders.

Easy way to make a napkin holder. You can easily glue any buttons on them.

Here are a few more ideas.

A Sweet Treat

Who Paid For It?

I have a serious question Mr. Obama....
Who was it that moved to a place where I didn't want to, to help a dying father with his business so he wouldn't lose everything? The Government wasn't there. You weren't there when we invested into a very small business that a man with the sweat of his brow and the hard work from his back built a Window service company. Are you so arrogant  that you want to tell me that it was the government that spent nights praying that God would give us wisdom on how to build a better business after my husbands father passed away? Who stayed up nights in a duplex with three small kids watching my husband get up at 4 a.m. to go spend hours gaining new clients? It was a hard working man who built this great business! It was blessings from our Savior who opened many doors for us. The Government didn't! We scraped and worked to turn a small business into what it is today! We paid our taxes to pay for all what you say the Government did. You have a very warped view of the world. When you say change Mr. President do you mean the complete control of a Tyrant? So when you say Government I say Who elected you? When you want to make your bold statements and pin them on everyone else remember you only won by the skin of your teeth on your first election. So I ask you again who was it REALLY that paved a way for us? So while you are busy hosting all Muslims and the extreme minded people like Al Sharpton remember it was not you or them that built this country While you divide the nation so you can try your control get ready because WE THE PEOPLE ARE A LOT STRONGER THAN YOU THINK!

2012 Summer Vacation

We took off for a couple of weeks and headed south. Our trip went through Arkasas for family, Tupelo, Misssissippi to Elvis's birth home and old general store where his mother bought him his first guitar. Then we headed onto more family in Alabama to golf and spend the most amazing day on the beach.
Our trip was really around Florida's Walt Disney World. We spent the days at the World's water park, Hollywood Studios and Epcot Center.  On our way home we toured Plantations in Lousiana. Here are a few memories.
