Spring Break This and That

So, while I have been on Spring Break
I got a bit crafty.

I wanted some St. Patty's plates but 
could not find any so I made my own 
from plates from the Dollar Tree.

I just used a Sharpie to write each 
saying on the plate. I added gold 
dots in the shamrock for some 

For this plate, I found an Irish saying.
I was very pleased with these.

Found this cute garland at JoAnn's. 
Thought I could just hang it up but 
noooo, I had to string the darn 
thing first. Pretty cute huh?

So, if you remember my yarn heart 
from Valentine's, this will look 
I cut out my version of an egg (it 
got squished) bought some 
variegated yarn in spring colors 
and started wrapping it around 
my cutout.
I added some eggs for bling and a 
ribbon then hung it on the front 
door. Cutting out eggs from card-
board is not easy.


Here is the Misc. I am so happy 
with it.
For those who did not see this on
Facebook, one of the gals that
I work with is beginning to down
size her home and she was giving
away several pieces of furniture.
Yes, I said giving away.
I am the happy recipient of this
little beauty.

Above is a daytime shot. On top I
have a poured sand sculpture from
Arizona and a statue from New Mexico.
The other item is a flower ball that my
Mom gave me years ago.I am not really
sure what it is made from though.

This is a nighttime shot, love the light 
on the inside.
On the top shelf I have two tea sets
from my Mom and one from a friend
plus a teacup. I collected them along 
time ago but have since stopped.
The second shelf has two figurines 
from when Mr. Ken and I got married, 
a quartz rock from a vacation and my 
"Welcome" house blocks.
The "floor" of the cabinet holds a
of  Mr. Ken's parents, one of us 

and one of my Mom.
So happy to have this fun addition to our
living room and to think I got it for FREE!!

~Keep on Dreaming~
