Easter Mail & Crafting

 I received a sweet Easter package last week from Debbie Kay, My Vintage Dreams...she sent goodies in the picture above and below.  Sweet vintage treasures and new ones. I sure do love kitchen towels and napkins!!  :)


When my kids were young, I read them the book "Home for a Bunny".. it's one of my favorite children's books. It was an "easy" read and darling pictures. I was so surprised that Debbie sent it to me. THANK YOU, Debbie! Also Love, " HE IS RISEN"... that is the meaning of Easter...



Tammy came over and we altered these birdhouses. She made the pretty one on the left and I made the one on the right along with the altered block. We had a nice time creating!

We went to an estate sale on Thursday that was a "crafter sale". I bought some scrapbook papers, stickers and a blond wood computer table to use in my craft room. I've been re-arranging my craft room this weekend. I need to let some "things" go...not sure that will happen!

Still waiting on Spring. We are now in a drought in Minnesota...so rain would be good.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARGE!!!  A sweet lady that reads my blogs. We'll be coming this week to see you!

Today's Finds, Golfers & More


On Tuesday I went along with a friend to visit our friend who turned the big "60"!!!  She is the one in the middle of the photo. She lives in a nursing home. I hope she enjoyed our visit. Her speech is a whisper at most...she can't feed herself anymore, however she gave us big smiles :)


 View out my front door yesterday and today! I was surprised that the golf course is already open, and we have already had a golf ball in our front yard!!! "FORE"!!

 My few and small finds from today. The ads sounded w-a-y better than what was at the 3 sales!! Ugh!!
I also saw my first garage sale sign, but didn't stop...



Tomorrow is grandgirl's 12th birthday! Taco dinner at their home! She stopped by on her bike the other day to see the "puppies" (not grandma) and she is taller than me!!! Of course I'm only 5' 3"....but I have "puffy" hair and seem Much TALLER! LOL!!!

It might get to 70 tomorrow!! Very happy with our weather! Puppies have gone on a walk the last few days. Life is GOOD and filled with BLESSINGS!

Easter Mantle and Cards

                            


 I'm trying to get into the " Easter/Spring" mood. So, I put up some of my Easter/Spring decor on the mantle this week. I went super light and easy. Most of my vintage Easter didn't get put up. It is still in the boxes....anyway...My Mom made this bunny YEARS ago in a ceramic class..I LOVE IT!  I think she should have kept it, but she gave it and I love it!

 Here it is all easy and light. I don't know how fond of it I am, but that is how it's going to look this year. The wreath was at Michael's and it was CHEAP as it was from Valentine's day...



I also made some cards this week. I have no idea why the photo is sideways...I didn't take it sideways..LOL!

Went to 1 estate sale on Friday and it wasn't that good...sad face...oh well!!!

The weather is going to be "nice" this coming week! I sure hope so! I hope all the snow melts. That would lift my spirits!

Had a church Tea Party meeting today. Tastes some very delicious desserts, tough job, right! It will be in May, so it's time to get the party going!

That is about all that is going on around here...

Fun Friday Finds

 Aww...nothing like a "digger's sale" on a Friday morning! Mainly new-ish items, but fun to dig...




The basement had many room filled with totes/boxes to dig in!!! Maybe we'll go tomorrow when it's 1/2 off. Price were good today on most things


I don't know why I picked up the soaps.  You just never know what "calls" to you when you are "shopping".

Tomorrow another sale that looks like "pretty" things to buy.

I hope you have a FUN  weekend!

Little Decorating Changes


 I've changed up the corner's in the living room...bought this awesome pink window/door on Thursday while shopping with Linda and Robin, fellow bloggers. The window/door will probably have a new location at some point. For now, it's here! It has the old wavy glass!



 I don't have a "foyer" in my home.  Bought this little table a couple weeks ago. Traded it out for a blue table that didn't have a drawer. These are real bird nests that I have found on the ground and put in the freezer for a year to be sure that any mites that were on them have been killed. I sure don't need any mites in the house or on the dogs or myself! The old bottles on the bottom shelf are from my son. He sometimes finds cool old stuff when he is remolding homes! Can't remember here I found the heart rock.


My good old suite case corner with my old church sign makes my smile! The old clocks are set at the time my kids were born. Copied that idea a few years ago!

We didn't go to any estate sales this morning. Nothing "looked" that good! LOL!!  Yesterday I bought paint for the living room, hallway and bedroom. Not sure when I'll start painting. I had to buy it as it was on sale!

I'm thinking Spring...just wish the weather was! This is the last week of February...

HAPPY WEEKEND!
warmly,

Recent Finds & Mantle for Now


 While we haven't gone to many estate sales, the picking have been poor and slim. Recent finds above for the shops...



 I LOVED watching the Benny & Cecil cartoons and have my own little collection. The Cecil doll has his own disguise kit to play with. The music box doesn't play music and the book is in tough shape, but I LOVE my collection!


 A couple of weeks ago we bought 2 stain glass windows. They are so pretty! One is at Antique Mn for sale if anyone wants one. The other one at home, if interested, you can email me...


The Valentine decor is put away...and these are on my mantle now. Very simple...with Easter around the corner, I thought this would work until I put up my Easter treasures. I do like my "girls". Do you like the cigar box that says, "dreams"...pretty cool!

This coming week is going to be FUN with Friends! Wednesday, lunch with Ginger, Thursday treasure shopping with 2 blogging friends, one I haven't met before, Friday lunch with church girls, along with favorite son in love's birthday!! Tuesday is a duty day. The week will fly by!!!

Lunch at the Cheesecake Factory yesterday was very good!  We brought home slices of cheese cake and had those for our "dinner"!! Thank you Marge for the gift certificate!!!

I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day!

~ Valentine's Day Wishes ~







                              HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY


May your day be SWEET and filled with LOVE. 

This is a Bible verse that I'm trying to live by:

Matthew 22: 37        "You shall love the Lord your God with All Your Heart, and with all Your Soul and with All Your Mind".

There is no greater Love than from the Heavenly Father...
