Pillow Shoppin'

He's fallen down and he can't get up! No, really...this is my man-child. My Sweet man-child.
This is the guy who you find curled up in the display bed at Bed Bath And Beyond.
He's the one who tries on the Homer Simpson slippers... and wears them around the store. He's the one i couldn't find anywhere while shopping for new pillows...until i looked down.
There he was. Trying out the pillows. On the floor. sigh. Lordy, i love my Sweet man-child.

(He did end up buying the pillow-thank goodness-no one called security...this time!)

Todays Treasures

My favorite sign of spring is seeing the return of garage sale signs!

Today i stopped at a couple and found these had-to-have treasures.

For as long as i can remember, i've wanted chickens. Big fluffy bottomed, egg laying girls. Several years ago i joined 4-H just so i could play with the animals. Crazy , i know. Our zoning laws won't allow us poultry (believe me, i've pestered the zoning board. They hide when they see me coming!) So for now, these two will have to do.
I un-earthed this picture frame from the back of someones garage. I love the silver detail around the glass. I'll probably end up painting it white (the wood, not the metal)
I think this is the prettiest picture hook i've ever seen! It's definitely going in my jewelry making box.

FEED ME! (Ha Ha Ha)

A set of 8 pretty glass dish/bowls

A future herb planter

Another beautiful rose bowl for my collection

And an assortment of stuff. It's always the little stuffs that i can't seem to do without! I've been collection old cork screws for the wine bar, i never pass up floral frogs, who doesn't need an old potato masher? The milk glass candle bobeches are a necessity, and i can always find a use for old black lace. So, you see? I really needed all this stuff! I know you get it.

Gotta scoot...need to find hiding places for all my treasures!

What have you found lately?

Big Bird

Shhh, the elusive Doodle bird is at the feeder.This is a rare and seldom seen glimpse of the Doodle bird in its natural habitat.

Ahh...we've been spotted!

The Doodle did it!
Since when did dogs like bird seed! And i thought the squirrels were trouble.

She does look a little sorry!

Happy Monday!

Whom Shall i Thank?

There had to be a woman behind this. Who else would think to combine chocolate and wine? And it also happens to be quite good! It reminds me a lot of Baileys, which i happen to be a big fan of. (Yes, i know half the bottle is gone. I did this all by myself. I like wine. And chocolate.Don't judge me ♥ )

Have a great weekend!

Spring From My Backyard

She's done it again.

The birds and bugs have returned.

Four leaf clover are in abundance.

Tiny toads are appearing everywhere.

The bleeding heart are putting on a show.

Mother Nature has pulled it off again! She has to be the most organized, self-sacrificing, color coordinated Mother i know! Happy be-lated Mother's Day !

Personal Day

So, it's dark and rainy out. A perfect day to clean like a mad woman or loose the day to the world of crafting. I did neither. After making a Target run and decided to take a personal day.

Me: "Sweet man, i'm taking a personal day"
Sweet man: "Uh, isn't every day a personal day?"
Me: "I'm serious, no cleaning, no crafting, i'm sitting on my grand boo-tux and watching a movie while feeding my face nachos"
Sweet man:" Really, how is that different from any other day?"
Me: "Don't you have somewhere you have to be"

I sat on my boo-tux, watched 'Julie And Julia' ate nachos...then i cleaned the bathroom.

How was your Friday?

I Dream of Lilac Time

Finally, after three years of hoping for lilac's to bloom, we got our wish.

I planted these lilac bushes four years ago thinking they would be full of blooms the next year. Year after year we waited and hoped but no lilacs. I made the decision last spring to cut them back hard hoping they would be forced to bloom...and...

BLOOMS! Yummy, sweet, beautiful blooms.

I'm so happy. I cut flowers for all the bedrooms and put them in little vases.

Ms. A thinks they smell like worm toots. Hmmm, go figure.

How was your day?

Happy Birthday Ms. A

Look at that sassy girl! Hands on her hips and pony tails up high. At 3 1/2 Ms. A was all attitude, but sweet as shugga.

Today she turned 12, still full of tude and sweet as the day is long.

Happy Birthday my sweet girl ♥
