About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Easter Swap


   I was one lucky duck when Emilie paired me up with Jen for her Easter Swap!  We had a blast getting to know each other!  Jen is a "fairy" of sorts in that she made so many of my Easter dreams come true!  Have a look...

   The darling little carrot tag now lives with Mr. Bunny.  I think he needs a new bow, though...

   Jen wrote the sweetest notes.  I love this one especially!  Jesus is truly what Easter is all about.  The banner she is referring to (FABULOUS!) is below...

   Look at the detail!  I know!  This banner is amazingly gorgeous!  I showed Jen a picture in Country Living magazine and she made me a banner that looked even better than the magazine!  Only Jen!:)

   It's hard to see the colors in this picture but they are romantic and oh so shabby chic!

   How about one more shot?  Why not??  I love it, Jen!  

   Look at my little vintage glittered bunny and her sweet flowers!  And how about the pink hand towels!  Pink, pink, pink and glitter- me, me, me!:)
   LOOK. AT. THIS.  Jen hand painted it!  Oh yes, she did!  Utterly fabulous!

   Jen and I are all about the little birdies and look at what she made for me!  A sweet framed nest!!

   Jen collects "G's" and now I am going to start collecting "D's"!  Thanks, Sweetie!  I love the colors and the little birdie is the "cherry on top"!  LOVE IT!

   Here's another wish that Fairy Jen created!  Will you look at this darling sign??  You know we will be having an Easter egg Hunt this year!!

   Here is the complete box of Easter love!  Jen, I cannot wait to be partners again!:)
