HAPPY SPRING & Easter Cards

                                This is from a plate that I have and thought it looks like SPRING!!!


Here are a few of the cards that I have made for Easter which is coming up!

Daughter's wedding is 6 months away!!! In April we have an appointment to meet with another florist. I hope this one works!

 Tomorrow is my last day working at the Vintage Cottage in Carver for Julie. She is closing her shop to work on the house that they recently bought. It's a fixer-upper. She is having a HUGE price cuts, 50% off to 90% off! I'm not sure what is left, I'll find out tomorrow. It's your last chance to visit me there!!! I'll MISS working for her! It was a "Dream" job and she is the best to work for!

Saturday we are going to collect some items to sell for a friend. She has some linens, vintage dishes that are so pretty and a few other things. I'm hoping to make more cards later that day with another friend. I need birthday cards!

HAPPY SPRING and Happy Weekend!
warmly,

Easter Mantle, Sunset & Friends


 I have started to put up a few Easter decorations on the mantle. The snow is melting, but I haven't found the "spring" in my step!


I took this photo the other evening! Just a beautiful sunset outside my window! Amazing beauty.

We girls grew up in the same neighborhood and have been friends for MANY years! Sharon, the one in the middle had her birthday on Monday. She lives in a nursing home. We are all the same age. Her speech is a whisper at most and she is fed her meals. She has had health problems and now has short term memory loss. She doesn't recognize people right away. I know she loves it when we visit, which I should do more often...it is hard to understand why certain things happen to people you care about.

The snow is MELTING!!! A LOT!!!  Hurray!!! I've seen peeks of grass!

Grandgirl is having her birthday on Saturday. The family party is on Sunday! She is tall, thin and looks way beyond her 11 years:)  Happy weekend! Think Spring!

Warmly,
deb

Wedding Cake tasting & Slim Pickin's at Sales

 On Friday we tasted some yummy cakes. They decided on the "Pink Champagne" cake on the left. It's pretty, has a whipped cream middle and butter cream frosting. It's very light and not as sugary as the others. The cake will be square, 4 tiers tall and have black bling around each section. The top section will have their new initial of their last name. The price wasn't as bad as I had planned for. We will get a small groom's cake for "free" and she also wants those little cake balls for later in the evening and for the next day when the gifts are going to be opened. The florist was a "bust"...she didn't have any "ideas" and wasn't the gal that we talked to at the Bridal shower last fall. We'll find another one.





Hubby and I went to an estate sale and it was pretty much a "bust"....very slim pickins!!! I thought the bunnies would work for Easter crafts....anyway...I'm looking forward to garage sale season!

I sure hope all the snow is melted before Easter! I LOVE Easter and this year my birthday is the day before. That makes it extra special, I think!

Warmly,
deb
