Spring Fling

Monday and Tuesday fun: It is SPRING BREAK week! Things are a changing with the upcoming season! Out with the red place mats and in the the spring green ones. Some green and white candles that replace the large pink one that was there. (Forgot a pic) Mr. squirrel thinks the flowerpot that I "borrowed" has food in it for him-in reality it has bird food in it. He seems to be enjoying himself don't you think?
Things are beginning to
bloom. I love it when the
little yellow flowers pop
out. You know Spring is
on the way.
A festive flag for the outside.
Some goodies purchased with
"free money." Walgreen's
discontinued their rewards
card in January. I cashed my
bonus points in and got a little
free money to play with. A gum
stash, nail polish-Wet and Wild
"Through the Grapevine" and
pretty notepads.
On another note-Last Saturday,
I went to one of my fave stores-
Fabric Recycles. A lovely woman
Paige owns this store, the concept
is recycle and reuse fabric, ribbons,
yarn, patterns, buttons, craft tools,
sewing machines and on and on.
Paige will offer a cash or in store
credit offer to those who brings
items into her store.
It is fun store because the inventory
changes regularly.
Back to Saturday--patterns were
.75 a piece! What a variety--I went
looking for "vintage patterns"
to frame for the sewing room but
ended up buying ones that I
could use for specific things in
each and at .75 how could I
lose?
This is what I purchased:
4 patterns at .75. They are
in the white envelopes.
1 cross stitch pattern.
1 apron pattern
1 skein of yarn-I AM
going to learn how to
crochet one way or
the other!
That's what I have been
up to on my Spring Break.
~Keep on Dreaming~

  4. Still no signs of spring where I live. In fact, I woke up to a blanket of snow on the ground, ugh.

    BTW, congrats about Mr. Ken's one year anniversary. I'm so glad things are stabilizing for you guys. I know it was a huge struggle for you.
