Kailee's Easter basket, found treasures and more

Kailee made this picture for me at school this pass week. Of course it's priceless to this Grandma! It's me on the left and Kailee. She said she didn't have time to put clothes on us!!!

Kailee saw my Easter basket swaps and she wanted to make one. She is some awesome little girl :)
My friend, Lorena at Rose Chic Friends made this sweet Easter basket for me! I just LOVE it and what a wonderful surprise it was to receive. THANK YOU, Lorena!!!

Hubby was showing houses most of the "boys" had to be under my feet. They were in the kitchen...waiting for their "daddy" to come home and play with them.

Estate sale finds...we didn't go out on for 1/2 off and there were a few goodies to buy.

Awesome bird book from pictures inside.

More treasures....

Old drug store bottles...see the one with the label on it...the label is also glass...and it was 1/2 off too!!!
Friday I picked up my check from How Quaint and was very Happy!!! Of course it needs to last until the next sale... also went to my new hairstylist and got a trim. She is so good, and charges less than my other gal.
Easter plans: dinner here at 5 PM . Serving ham and turkey breast, cheesy potatoes, fresh fruit and green salad. Inviting hubby's 2 grown is married so I'm a MIL....however not really...I have ISSUES....and not close to his sons at all, and the SIL & DIL are vegans...and then my kids, Kailee and her daddy and my Mom. These holidays sure can cause family issues...UGH!!! Letting go...I will enjoy and relax and remember it's not about me. Thank you Jesus!
Deb :)

I have that same tin that is pictured in the first photo of your estate sale finds. It was my grandmas! I just love seeing that the exact same vintage item exists out there!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I like that bird book! I have one from that era and the illustrations are gorgeous. If you're looking for someone to buy it, I might be interested.

Yes, family holidays are ... interesting. Letting go sounds wise. Hope you have a great week, Deb!

How sweet is that Kailee! She's got a pretty darn sweet Grandma too!

Yay for the big check! I've been giving some thought to renting a booth myself at some point. Any words of wisdom?

Every family has "issues!" Hope the holiday dinner goes well.

Have I thanked you for my fantastic Easter good mail!?! I ALWAYS love and am thrilled with my goodies from you. You are beyond generous! Thank you so much friend!

Hi, Deb! I think your relationship with Kailee is so sweet! I can't wait to live near my grand girls! ♥

Theresa said...

Good Morning Dear Deb! It is the sweetest pictures of you and Kailee. She is such a sweetheart. It is a wonderful relationship, I love that:)

Love all of your goodies. I haven't been to any sales in a couple of weeks. I need it!

Easter sounds like fun, you will make it that way in spite of all of the differences. You are correct, it is about Jesus!

Love to you! Ganky

I am in love with those old bottles. That picture is priceless, I miss having some one in school. Kalee did a good job on the basket and the one your friend sent is pretty also. Have a Happy Easter.

Hi Sis...oh my gosh, I love that picture that Kailee made for you. I so miss those! Can't wait until Liam can draw for Gamma!

You always find the neatest things at the sales you go to. I so wish we had ones like that here. I cannot wait for some garage salin to happen soon!!!

Love that little basket Kailee made too...soo cute!

Have a wonderful week...Cassie has to work on does Mark.

Love Kailee's art and basket she is very creative.

Sweet finds the bottles and bird book and glad you had a good month and big check.

There will be just the three of us for Easter dinner...having lamb and fixing favorite side dishes. Family gatherings do get complicated...but I know you will make the day special and like you say it's not about us......hugs, Linda

Deb, make sure to tell Kailee that her basket turned out very pretty! She gets her creativity from Grandma!
Great finds, and I can never pass up a bird book!
I hope Easter goes smoothly for you. You've got a good attitude, and you'll make the most of it, especially for Kailee!
Happy Monday!

Hey Deb!
"The Boys" under your feet look like they are enjoying a restful day...they are so cute! You know I always love to see what they are up to. Your Easter Baskets are so cute too, and so is the priceless art that your granddaughter made for you! I bet you both have such fun crafting together :)

Hi Deb! I love your finds! Really love that bird book and would love to take it off your hands for a price, if interested. I hope you do enjoy your Easter. It's nice to have family around, even with issues.

Joy said...

She did a great job on her basket.
I bet it is fun to have her around for the holidays! We haven't seen any sales around yet. Maybe after Easter. What a neat bird book :)
