I’m a Graduate of Debbie’s Newbie Party


Hi everyone! I hope you all have had a great spring day, love spring, my favorite season of the year where everything seems so fresh and clean and I can’t forget green! It’s a little cooler here now but that’s okay because it’s spring!!!

This evening I’m joining Debbie Do’s Newbie Reunion Party! Because you see I’m a graduate of her Newbie party and right now I’m feeling a little proud, why? Because I’ve kept this blog up and running for a while here even though I was scared to death to start a second new blog not knowing how it would take off but I put my myself out there and tried and I’m so glad I did♥ I’ve made so many friends and I’m always eager to get on the computer in the morning with a cup of coffee at my desk and visit you all, you make my day! Love Ya Deb!!!

Now I’m just going to ramble here this evening, I pulled up more pictures that I took and never posted.

This is my Easter centerpiece in the diningroom, the urn and grass are from GW a couple years ago, I added the egg picks from DT and tied it all up with the prettiest blue ribbon! Easy peasy and I think it turned out so neat! I think I saw this done on Pinterest but I’m not sure!



These are from GW too and they are heavy, tarnished Salt and Pepper shakers!


Happy Spring! I guess I should take the pinecones off the tray now, funny how you see things after you post the pictures that you didn’t see before.Smile



Ahhhh spring, now we get to wear these type of shoes instead of boots and socks!


I know I’ve posted this picture before but I do love it, to me I think it is the best picture I ever took and it wasn’t with a DSLR either. I bought the fresh, pink roses at Walmart and the vase I found at GW, I did really like this vase too, it was ceramic but looked galvanized… but sadly it is no more, hubby broke it taking the Christmas tree down last December, I could have cried but didn’tSad smile.


Well, I’ll end this post with pictures of what my kitchen looks like as I type this! My counters are being put in tomorrow!



No stove, sink or dishwasher, I really can’t wait to see it all done!Smile

I’ll post about it Friday.

Thanks so much for stopping by always so glad to have you!

I’m joining these parties!

Hello Graduate! I'm glad you stuck with blogging, I love coming to visit!

Your urn, grass and Easter egg centerpiece is gorgeous! I can't believe you found it at GW! Very pretty. And so are your flowers, that is a great picture!

You remind me that I need a pedicure!
