It's almost EASTER and I was BUSY !!!

It's almost Easter...Thank you Jesus for the Greatest Gift...Salvation...
Isn't this cup so sweet!! We went to an estate sale on Friday and found a few items. This one has bunnies on this side and.... Pretty blue flowers on the other side. It's on my white shelf.

oops...out of order...the food you see below had a TOTAL COST of $16.00...dollars days at a local grocery store...

I know...most of it isn't that healthy for us...but for a buck per item !!!!

This sweet little plate is CHINTZ... my favorite china to collect. It was only $1.00, yup a buck and a lady at the sale said..."Oh, isn't that a cute plate"...I think she was jealous and wanted it:) MINE!!! I will have to look it up on the Internet and see what value it has.

More treasure for the monthly sale at HQ which is during my BIRTHDAY weekend!!! Yup, I'm having a birthday this month. birthday is sometime between April 16-19...I do have to work my shift at HQ and one of the gals traded days so I can enjoy my weekend.

Remember my Busts...well...looks like they had a daughter :) I found her Saturday at the thrift store. I have no idea why I'm all of a sudden finding them and loving them. After Easter I'll put them on the mantle.

I was SO in the MOOD to make cards this weekend. These are for the card swap next month that I swap at. The theme is: Ladies Birthdays. I just fell in love with these ladies and will make a few extra for a surprise that I'll post about later this week. Don't you just love surprises!???
Friday after the estate sale I went to HQ to drop off stuff for the sale. When I was ready to leave my Jeep decided not to start. I was having problems with it starting and thought it could be the battery..hubby "looked" at it and also thought it "Could" be the battery and wanted to wait awhile. (WHY...?) The battery died on Friday, so hubby had to come out and we went to WM and bought a new battery. I'm thankful he is his own Boss...and that he could take care of the Jeep during the day. I'm also thankful he know about cars :)
When I woke up this Palm Sunday morning there was SNOW on the's all melted now, 7 PM, but it's still cold....
So, I'm wondering...what are your Easter Plans??? Are you making the Easter meal, going out to eat or to someones home? I'll be having a meal here, not sure which meal as I have to talk to the "kids" and see what they have going on.
I hope you all had a great weekend and NO Snow where you live! Let's prepare for a lovely Easter Celebration!!!
Deb :)

We had a blizzard in NW Iowa. Church was canceled, and we had a hard time getting out on the gravel roads, which were not plowed. We made it to a family dinner, took the grandkids home to play in the snow/mud/water puddles, and it all melted by evening. Today, Monday, the sun is shining!!! Oh Spring, when will you really get here?

I found your blog thru Rechelle and Roberta Anne. You really got some great items. I love the chintz plate and the blue/white cup with bunnies is precious. We'll be staying home for the traditional Easter dinner. We've had some cooler weather and rain in GA this week, but for now it's 65 and sunny. Easter blessings to you and your family.
