The yellow towel was filled with Spring goodies, what a cute idea.

 
, Crafting supplies, Candy, Stamps, Stickers and the cutest vintage flocked bunny.

Deb makes the most beautiful cards.
You cant buy a card this beautiful and meaningful at Hallmark.

 

 
Thanks Deb, you are a treasured friend!
 
 
I added more Spring décor around the house today. Temps are supposed to be in the upper 80's this week. Can't wait to get out in my flowerbeds!
 
Have a lovely week and thank you for visiting.

Spring is in the air !

 
I spent all afternoon puttering around the house today. The weather outside was in the upper 80's and my heart was in full swing for Spring.
 
 
I tucked some spring flowers here and there.


My little lambs are so happy to be on display



Just put out a few things here and there.




My mantle is always so fun to decorate




My very sweet treasure of a friend Pam from Virginia Retro sent this adorable Easter garland to me.
 
 She is so creative and so thoughtful ! Thank you Pam.


Speaking of creative ad thoughtful, my blog friend and sweet sister in Christ Patti made this adorable bunny garland for me. How cute are those cottontails? I love it !! Thank you Patti.


 
 
Blog friends are one of a kind and  bless my heart !





He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives
today!
He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives:
He lives within my heart.

 
Have a lovely week and thank you for visiting.

A Little Me Time

My 2 favorite guys (that would be my husband and my son) went dirt bike riding today so I had some much needed time to myself and what else would I do but hit the Thrift Shop......right?
 
 


Its a small haul but that's ok, I am so tickled with what I found

When we were kids, my mother had one of these on our hutch in the kitchen and she would read the promises to us everyday while we ate our breakfast. I am so happy to have found this little gem filled with God's promises.
 
 
 
This adorable old cake decorating book absolutely grabbed my attention. I have been thinking about taking the classes at Joann Fabrics. It looks like fun.
 
 
 
This is marked Homer Laughlin so I thought it was a good deal at $1.99. I can always find a little spot to display it.
 




I adore "little books" and this one is a Hymn book for Sunday School. Oh its just perfect for my little collection of happiness.



Not a great picture but if you look closely, you can see penciled notes written by some dear soul in The Lord.
 
 



Speaking of "souls" I have always considered myself an "Old Soul" and I absolutely enjoy, admire and delight in the old hymns. We sang them every Sunday in the church I grew up in and I was always fascinated by the words. I wondered what inspired the writer of the hymn and I would ask my mom to take me to the library to look up their origin.
 Hmmmm that makes me sound old but we didn't have computers and internet when I grew up in the 70's.
 
 Ahhhhh the simplicity of it all. I miss that too.


The Old Rugged Cross.......it made the difference for me, thank you Jesus!
 
Have a lovely week my friends,

Marching Forward

 
Well did you put your Valentine décor away and pull out
 St. Patrick's Day?
 
I did!
 
 I don't have a lot of St. Patrick's Day goodies.
I let my little March angel shine on the table in my entryway.
 






This little green guy is so cute in the polka dot pot, found him at the Goodwill.
 
 

 
Poked a little luck here and there.
 
 
 


 Redheads have more fun. LOL
 



I wanted to share this handmade card I received last week.
 It is so special and so meaningful to receive a handwritten thank you note or just a note to say hello. In this fast paced world of instant messaging and hurried deadlines, it is so warm and touching to know that a special friend whom I hold close to my heart, thought enough of me to return the sentiment.
 
Have a lovely week. It's a short one for me.
