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!

One More Day and Sweet Mail

  I got the sweetest tweets in the mail yesterday from my dear friend, Tristan!  
She had a drawing for some birdie love and you know I had to be a part of that!  Look at the darling bird and nest frame.  Love them!  Thanks, Tristan!

   I want to create these at some point today.  They just sing "SPRING" and "PARTY"!  My Mom is coming tomorrow and that makes me want to throw a party, let me tell you!

   I am in the middle of feathering the nest (still) and want my Mom to feel most welcome.  We really want her to stay with us forever (or at least next door) but I think my Dad would get lonely.  Dad, you come stay, too!:)  
   These are a few of the goodies we are placing in the guest room, in case she wants a "midnight snack"....

   Pics of the girls...
   A new quilt made by my dear friend, Heidi...

   A few more touches and I think we will be ready.  Still searching for something to put over the headboard....

   I made another ball of YUM for the candlestick.

   Here's a close- up....  Now I just need to make one for the other candlestick...

   I won another giveaway!  This one is from the sweetest lady and dearest friend, Angi!  
She said she saw these towels and thought of me!  This so touched my heart!

   Angi makes the most AMAZING bags!  They are FABULOUS!  And guess what??  I WON one of them!  Yes, I did!  These are the darling pockets on the inside...  Love them!

Here is THE BAG!  It is sooooo cute!  Thank you so much, Angi!  Check out her shop- you will love it!:)
   Love the tags, too, Angi!

Rambling Girl said...

Oh I am sure your Mom will enjoy her stay! My parents live a good ways from me so it is always nice when they come to visit but it is not often since my dad is a minister and his main work day is Sunday.

Love the yum ball and saw where Jen and Elise had one so I would really love to see how you make these Lori. I am getting jealous with all the yummness around here...

Woohoo you won a giveaway...Isn't it great that so many have these great giveways...I guess I need to have another one soon also.

I am so into the nest scene now and love all the birdy things that are popping up everywhere.

"I'm a funky bag freak." That is soooo cute! What great goodies you've been getting! I love you style of hospitality. It's so much fun being a hostess...especially when your special guest is your mom!

Hope you're having a great week!

I can't believe your mom will be there tomorrow! I bet you have just been sooo sooo sooo busy!
Her room looks great, so comfortable!
I love the snacks, I do that when my parents come to visit too-I put their favorites in a basket by the bed with bottled water~ It's always nice to have a snackie near by huh? :)

You are just really winning the giveaways girl, you are on a winning streak for sure!

Love what you've done to decorate the guest room, the quilt is amazing!

Don't over do it! (though I know you will)
Robin~♥
