Are you confused over the title of this post?
Well you should be, it is all one big hodge podge of things combined in one.
You can only imagine the stress cleaning I have been doing to prepare for our publication in Country Woman Magazine.
Do I really need to clean the inside of my cabinets?
Well you never know, so I am anyhow.
I had a wonderful birthday celebration and have received so many wonderful presents this year.
I do every year, and really the best gift is the gift of life, family and friends.
But the perks that going along with a birthday are pretty good I tell ya!
|Love this new platter my Mom gifted me, it came with matching pitcher which was damaged during shipping, she called them and told them to get one out STAT I have Country Woman Magazine coming.|
|It is a gorgeous piece, and so full of color..thanks Mom! XO|
|One of my BF's bought me this awesome rooster candle sconce made out of a roof tile, looks like the art must have been baked on, not sure but it is cool, we love it, and found a new home right away for it.|
Then you have to check this out, and maybe try to make one yourself.
Same BF made these cool moss balls..all from natural moss, sticks and bark from her woods.
The only thing she bought was the Styrofoam ball from Michael's. She said it took her time to make it, as she had to hot glue every little thing. It is super cool!
All I have to do is keep it alive, by lightly watering it when it gets dry.
|Our kitchen is a mixed array of vintage and modern rustic decor. This scale my Mom scored for us at her local antique shop, actually my Step Dad found it, and he done good! It is very unique and I have never seen another like it. Notice the knife holder...that was recently gifted to us from Mike's Dad. I can't even begin to tell you all the cool things he has given us, I need another shed!|
|Vintage rooster salt and pepper shakers that were my husbands Grandmother's|
|New faucet I have been wanting for a long time now, finally Mr. Doo's caved in. It's really fun to do dishes now. ||NOT!|
|And nothing could have ended my Birthday any nicer than to receive this nice package from my Blogging friend Kathy from Never enough Thyme|
Her daughter in-law Melanie makes these wonderful cookies, that I got to sample today. That was so sweet Kathy, and they were delish!
Thank you KATHY
! It is so NOT necessary for you gals to send me gifts, or thank you's really, it's not
but I'm glad you did
I just want all you newbies, oldies alike to know for me starting the newbie party has been equally satisfying and rewarding. I find more joy over watching you grow and connect with other bloggers. When I see it, it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, knowing I do have part in it.
