Goodies, Easter Cards & Vignettes

Vignette on the hearth. Loving my bird nests.

On Monday I was able to make some cards with "J". We went to Archivers for the day and used their work room.We had a nice big table to spread out our papers and things. It's free! Of course I did make a small purchase.

A gal from church wanted to know if we "buy" antiques and things. Sure, if the price is right and it's something we are interested in. Sooooo I bought somethings from her to resell. The Southern Belle pillowcases are in great condition!

Another set...near perfect condition...with lovely lace on them. Yes, they are for sale if anyone is interested. Email me!

Vignette on top of my bookcase. Love the old wood pieces! (not for sale, LOL!)

Found these little bunnies while digging in the Easter totes. Awww...

Haven't seen these types of planters before and YES, they are for sale. Email me! I'm shameless!
Motorcycle and airplane are just so sweet!

Remember my friend, Sharon, who now lives in a nursing home and recently had the feeding tube put in...WELL...and Praise The Lord...she can now have 2 small meals a day! Let me tell you I'm beyond happy for her! Her birthday is this weekend and I'm going to visit her on Friday. Thank you if you have been praying for her! God is Awesome!

I have a duty day on Saturday. Sunday is Grand girl's birthday party. She really wants a hamster. I have a glass "cage" and the necessary stuff in the garage. She will get one or two, but not until they move into their home in April.

This is my 499 post! Who Knew I had so much to say...

Don't forget set your clock ahead 1 hour if you have daylight savings on Saturday before bed! I don't like losing my hour of sleep!

Nothing too exciting happening around here. Just waiting for Spring!

Hi Deb,
Yes, I love the counter top too. It's all been like a dream come true. We got two countertops for free, misorders at the lumberyard (and my carpenter husband is well liked there)so I will have another one on the opposite wall. If you have a space you can do this in I would highly recommend it. Maybe you can blog about it and inspire someone else to do it! It is so nice to have a place of my own, so private and peaceful. It feels like I am in another world when I am down here. I'm in Julieland! :) I have been going into a lot of detail as we go along so that if someone else would like to try to make a room they can see how we did it. It probably bores some people, but I'm trying to be helpful. If your husband is handy you can save so much money. Just make sure he puts in enough outlets, mine didn't and now I am realizing it! I have to see if he can add some. My granddaughter and I are vacuuming out the sawdust and putting things in the cubbies under the counter right now. Well have a great day! Thanks for visiting and leaving the nice comment!
