Time Is On My Side

The best part of my every morning is coffee.

All the empty coffee cans are being spray painted and decoupaged one by one. A friend came by for a visit today and took one home with her. Yea! She said she would use it in her bedroom to hold supplies.

Now that the summer holiday has begun, time is mine. I can do things at a leisurely pace. During school, mornings are always rushed. I enjoy being able to give my plants their own first drink of the day. A little more Americana can be found outdoors.

My day has been filled with a little cleaning, blogging, crafting, baking.

Bananas that are too ripe are turned into yummy muffins with a dash of cinnamon, crushed pecans and mini chocolate chips. A perfect afternoon snack with my favorite green tea chai. Time for all that and more. I love these kinda days!

Hope you are finding time in your day for all that makes you happy. Peace & blessings, Tammy

Those Coffee Cans are too cute, I want one two, may you should do a tutorial on them. Where do you find such great paper to decoupage?
Have a wonderful summer vacation, enjoying the leisurely pace, Blessing Deborah

Good morning, Tammy! Sounds like a perfect day to me! I love summer days with my girls...sleeping in, leisurely breakfast, playing games, working in the garden...movies till 2 am...start over again!

Your cans are beautiful--lucky friends to receive them!

Hope your day is wonderful, my friend!

Your coffee cans are pretty! I hope you are enjoying your break. The banana muffins look delicious too, I'll have to remember to add cinnamon to my next batch! :)

Linda said...

I'd love to be off for the entire summer!! But alas, my job at the office goes on year round. Still ~ I share your sentiments about summer. It is very much relaxed at our home, and for a couple of weeks now (already), I've been immersed in the summer state of mind.

An enjoyable week to you!

Sounds like a perfect day to me! Aren't school holidays the best?! ;)

I am so happy for you , that you can relax in your days now..no more rushing off to school. Tomorrow I am getting my hair cut and colored at Daniell Nacols.. I know I didn't spell that right. I will get the correct spelling tomorrow. I am hooking up with Erica. she is the one who did my hair last time we were all in there together. They told me over the phone it should cost about $150. I think it is worth it to get my hair looking a little more chic. now I look like a mop! ha!
I have been thinking about having a jewelry exchange this summer... where peeps bring their jewelry they don't wear anymore and trade with other's . Do you want in on that? Let me know. ta for now.
love, Gwen
(still doing the happy dance!!)

Coffee is the only way to start the day. Your coffee cans are so pretty and I hope every day's a wonderful one for you. Diane

glor said...

Keep that coffee warm! I'm grabbing my mug and heading on over to sample one of those muffins ... mmmmmm. While I'm there would love to make one of your decoupaged cans!

I'm glad you're able to have some time to relax. It's slowed down here too, as we're winding down our school year and taking it easy. The weather has warmed up too (although not as hot as you get). Love your cans.
Blessings,
Marcia

I love those coffee cans! I haven't done decoupage in a long time, but I love it. I think I need to decoupage something like my computer desk. I'm feeling inspired now. Maybe I can do that to help me make it through the days waiting for my new computer to get here!

Cheers!

Melissa said...

Maybe I'll swing by tomorrow and pick me up a tin and some muffings and enjoy your company. Hopefully the weather is more cooperative tomorrow. My head is still hurtin while writing so this will be short. Hope yours gets better too!

The coffee cans are great! What a clever recycling project! And we all know how wonderful that first sip of hot coffee is in the morning. What are you going to do with all the refurbished cans?

Your coffee cans are awesome. I'm thrilled to know you are enjoying your time this summer. Mine has been busy, but I am not complaining. On most mornings, I sleep until 7AM, so at least I wake up smiling!!

Enjoy your muffins!

Love,
Renee
