I love what you have done…gonna check out more of your stuff. I “love” repurposing things like you and I LOVE power tools!

  18. Wonderful pictures Debbie!! Hope all is well!

  19. Yes, I agree, your photographs are fantastic. Did you get a new camera? Instead of a box of chocolates on my plate, I’d like a new camera! Hehe!

  20. Debbie-
    I plan to make a special breakfast for the boys as well. Some gluten-free chocolate chip pancakes with strawberry sauce…
