Thrifty finds.....

Found this bin at a garage sale for $2.00. Great shape and with a price like that, couldn't pass it up.
This plant stand was only a $1.00. Really didn't like the gold, but I see potential.

I came across 2 boxes of these while cleaning.
I'm thinking, pin cushions?

Would love to hear your creative thoughts.
Plus, if you have any creativity, throw it my way.
Been lacking in that department lately.
Need to get the juices running again.

Colors of Spring

This was the second batch of flowers that I cut from my garden. Love the burst of color when they open up.
Took a ride to the farm and started checking out some plants. I always wait till Mother's Day to plant. But boy, going through the green house, I was itching to pick up some plants.

But I was good. Just kept on walking and looking at all the different types out there. I did happen to pick up some Pansies for my mom.

She loves putting them into her baskets and pots on her patio. The colors were just beautiful, they just popped right at you. It wasn't hard at all picking some of these.

I have bunches of these popping up all over the place. Front of the house and the back yard. I'm surprised they still are popping in the back yard. With Chloe on the prowl, usually nothing stays alive.

My plum and pear trees take my breath away in the Spring. The way the colors just come out in the trees. I could just sit out there all day looking at them. Just wished the colors would last longer.
I love Spring for the new beginnings that it brings to everything outside. From the birds singing to the flowers breaking through the ground. A fresh start for everything.

Bunny Swap!

This was the wonderful package that I got from my Bunny Swap partner Sarah. My son and I loved opening up all the gifts. Everything was wrapped in pink paper. So it took him some time to open everything up. Loved everything in the box. We already dug up some dirt outside over the weekend for the seeds she sent. Thank you Sarah for being my partner and thank you to Mizmollye for being a wonderful host.

Finally finished my first quilting project. It took me 4 classes to do it.
Loved how it came out!
I need some help on the corners, which I know will come in time.
Just have to keep at it.
Looks wonderful on my table with my first batch of flowers from the garden.
Now, I have to look for another project before Friday's class.
Signed up with a group that meets twice a month.
There will be helpers in the class to help me along.
Help is something I'm going to need.
I know this, from reading some of the directions on some things I'd like to make.
