This and that on a Friday

Drapes I'm making, all done but trying to decide pleated tops or rings.
Easter bunnies from yard sale.

It looks like this linen piece with chicken would have been a dish towel but someone made it into a small window covering.

Just a few things, now I better get things done around the house.

Tea Time

Livi & Mimi Time
Little Miss Olivia and I had a Tea Party.  We improvised a lace curtain for a tablecloth covering a cars table, decorated for Easter.  Livi forgot to bring her party dress, but next time.  We are hoping for a warm day and having one outside.

Ava annoucement

This is a card I created a few months ago.  Love Ava's pic in it.  She is doing great at home now.  Her Mom says a sleepy one, doesn't even wake up to be fed.  She is so tiny and adorable.  Ava'a sister Olivia and brother Trevin fell in-love with her.

All three, Mimi's little angels.

Digital Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking I did last year for Easter and Mothers Day

We tell him he's Mimi's Boy or Mama's Boy, or Daddy's Boy and he says NO Bampa's Boy.  He's 2 years old and argues it with us.  So I did this picture for him.

Livi doesn't like getting her picture taken unless she can model her way.  She was 4 when I took these.

Their Mom is going to the hospital to have their new little sister, so I'm going to be busy next few days keeping up with these two.  The new little sister is Ava Brooke, will be fun watching them them first time they see her.

Waiting for Spring


First time blogging so please be patient.  Will start out with some pics of favorites of mine.

Just bought this hutch from a consignment shop.  Think I will eventually paint it cream colored.  Love the Magnolia dishes first set I got in Tallahassee, FL., along with napkins and placemats in basket.  I keep going back to those colors being my favorite.

Built-in hutch with some gifts to me over the years.  On the bottom I found these at a thrift shop. They are Nortake, Misty 2883, I got 72 pieces for don't faint ($15.00).  I stood right in front of them until salesgirl could help me.  You can' buy one piece for that.  I also have another large set I bought in  Florida for $25.00, will get a picture on later.  The red dishes {Avon} my MIL and my Mom started me on.  The top is Fantasia my Mom bought most of them for me and I have found some at flea markets and consignment shops.

My Grandbabies, the loves of my life.  I cut out and painted these boards then decoupaged the 10x20 pictures on, also did edits on the pics.

 Have both of my Grandchildren today, will be busy.  Trevin who is 2 and Olivia who is 5.

Got the plate and vase eons ago for a gift.  I made the doily eons ago.  I just dug them out this spring to see how they would look in this corner.  I got flowers at Dollar Tree and greenery had stashed.  I think a little white Babies Breath is needed.


Made this for my new Granddaughter {Ava Brooke} due April 15th.  Didn't  take a picture after it was  finished, will have to do that.
