For Sale

I've been an MIA blogger. SO sorry. The reason is-we've listed our house for sale. The sign went out today. I have mixed feelings-I love this house and will miss it, but we want to down size and get a one story house. We haven't looked at much yet- but now that all the hard work is done, we can really start looking. My dream house? Well, small enough to be charming and cute, but big enough to keep most of my stuff. I know I'll have to get rid of some furniture and I really need to curb my thrifting habit. Anyway-we've been working our butts off getting everything ready. Now it the upkeep part. No big projects where I can leave out my mess, no big baking projects. Boo Hoo. I'll keep you posted on progress. Now I can finally check out your lovely blogs. That doesn't make a mess. Happy Easter to you all!

Home Again

I'm finally home after 3 long weeks of a roller coaster ride. My Dad is finally doing better-he was in and out of the hospital and is home now with 24 hour care in his home. Thank you so much for all your positive thoughts and prayers. I can't wait to catch up with all your blogs-I missed you guys! Life is hard without internet. lol

I took this pic outside in Arkansas-the butterflies were everywhere. I finally feel like it's spring!
I did do a little thrifting when I got home. I love this pillowcase and the little applique placemats have a slot to put a napkin through. I have lots of pieces like this with fruit and flowers. Love the colors.
I plan on doing some tiny projects-like painting these little ornies up. Still working on my stitching. I'll share the progress soon. It's so good to be home!!!!!!
