How was your weekend?
We had H's final soccer tournament this weekend. She played two games. In the first game she scored 3 goals out of 10 and the second game, she was goalie for the second half and although they did not win she didn't let any goals in. She was quite pleased with herself and I am glad soccer season is over. YAY!!
(they were the Red Chillies)
I think I might have mentioned somewhere that my parents are visiting us from Portugal this summer.
With all the old key projects all over blogland, I was determined to do something too. Problem was though that I didn't have any old keys lying around. So when I heard they were coming to visit this summer, I sent my dad on a mission over in Portugal. I asked him to go check out my grandma's abondoned house. My grandma passed away in 1987 and no one has lived in that house since that day (other than mice, snakes and some other choice rodents). Well, he found these...
A bunch of old keys still on an a string. No idea what they were for, I'm assuming they opened the various doors on my grandma's farm house.
Whohoooo!! I can finally do my old keys project!
This weekend between soccer games I managed to pick up this frame for 25 cents at a garage sale...
First I cleaned the frame and the keys with my favourite, Shaklee's Get Glean
Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate.
( I used the window & Glass spray on the frame glass and a drop of full concentrate on the keys)
( you can order Basic H here through my website)
Then, I grabbed some scrapbook paper, and some scrapbooking glue dots that I had on hand and voila!
(the glue dots are super sticky and super strong)
It's now hanging between the basement door and the powder room door.
The frame is a tarnished silver colour.
What do you think? Not bad for 25 cents, huh?
Oh yeah, and my dad was quite impressed with it too.
He couldn't quite figure out why I needed those "rusty old keys".
ohhhh dad... The treasures I would find in granma's old house if I wasn't deadly afraid of those snakes!!
I'm linking up to some of these parties.
Don't forget that Friday I will be having a Bloggy Friends Weekly Party link party.
I will have badge for it, if I can figure out how to do it. :-D
Have a nice week.
