Just checking out my many party blogs I frequent.
Here is a few I liked.
A Sip and Strokes party for little girls.
Oh, this would be fun !

Can you tell what this is made of?
Yes, it is white paper cups.

As you know, I love the beach.
And to have a white and soft pink
mermaid party would be a dream.

And the baby shower in soft blue.
Oh, do I need a project.
I am helping with a silent auction to benefit
( Court Appointed special advocate)
Got anything you want to donate?
It is keen to be green
Seems it just all comes together.
I love to see what Barbara comes up with when she gets in the decorating mood.
She is on a hat kick, right now.
And they are selling.
Is it spring or the fact that women are going back to wearing hats.

I love these lamps and the contrast of a burlap bag.
We all need alittle "NEW" in our life from time to time.
Maybe a new pair of lamps will give you enough change.
It could be as simple as getting a new picture frame or vase. So pick a color and add that sparkle we all need from time to time.
If you need help, come on by.

Spring decorating has begun at Dry Creek Antiques.
Just a sneak peek into
one of the booths.
Don't you love this blue color?
And it looks good with the bronze mirror.
How did she find a brown and blue umbrella?
Well, all I can say is Barbara is good.
I love her decorating style.

And only Barbara would see her way to create this.
It is alittle scary and really unique.
But I like her.
This is what it is all about.
If something is unique, don't you think you will remember and the little shop it is in.
And you will have to come back and see what has been done.

We have new "NEW" items in the shop. And I thought you might want to check them out.
I love the older pieces that granny's wore.
Can't you just see one of these pins on your granny's winter coat.

We have a china cabinet full of older pieces, with a few newer items mixed in.

So come on by and check them out.

Pictures of the Valentine Day Dinner at Church.
As you know I love this part of all the parties.
It is the decorating and the setting up.
I seem to forget my camera when it comes to the guest arriving.

I love the word " Twitterpated".

Thank you Linda for all your help. She stepped up and made all the origami hearts and much more.
This event was the week Daddy came home from his heart surgery and I was not as prepared as I would have liked to have been. But with all your help it came together.
Thanks Cort, Libby, David and Ginger for all the set up help and the tear down too.
And anyone else that helped in any way.
We raised over $500.00 for the youth fund.
The boys served and the girls helped prepare the food.
They were alot of help too!

Sweets for your sweet-heart
A small candy table.

Cece Bunco Birthday
Sorry for the blurry pics, I forgot my camera and these came from my phone.
The Birthday chandelier was alot of fun and instructions can be found here.

With the help of her hubby, I got alot of older pictures.

I love the color combination of the black and white.
Always a good color.

Side way picture, sorry.
Boy my sewing machine sure has had a work out lately.
We all had a good night, I know Cece was tired but she done a great job.
Happy Birthday, my friend.

A few weeks ago, I got to spend a few days with my scrappin buddies.

We were in
Mentone, Alabama.

It was a stressful but much needed weekend.

Daddy was still in the hospital and it was so hard to leave him.

But I got my first massage and I am in love!

It was a enjoyable weekend,

sometimes it takes the girls to put you in a

better mood.

Thank you, friends.

I am a romantic!
I read all the trashy novels.
And I know how Terry is suppose to look into my eyes and hold me in his arms.
Problem is, he does not read the same books as I do.
But I still live in this fantasy world.
Don't get me wrong Terry is romantic in his own way.
The longer we are together,
it seems the simple things can be a turn on.
Recently, he cleaned our bathroom.
He took my car and put gas in it.
( I hate doing both of these things and he knows it)
So when I get a bud vase with 3 crappy looking old flowers that don't match for Valentines that looked like a left over at Winn Dixie, I am disappointed.
Now this is between you and me, and I ask you to keep it quite.
I would never tell him my feelings, at least he tried.
I smile and fuss over those ugly flowers.
But DD said , at least they don't have a flag in them this time.
Several years ago I got patriotic flowers for Valentines.
So I love my Valentine, he is my one and only.
I thank God each and everyday for him and what he has worked so hard to provide for our family.
But I think I will leave one of my books, on his bedside table.
It couldn't hurt.

The older I get the more I dislike certain things and tend to voice my opinion more often. This is certainly a warning that this can be a long post just to blow off steam.
. Here it goes.....when did this word become okay to say ......
I was taught it was not a nice way to ask someone to be quite. I am not saying I have never used this word, I have. But it was after my daughter had run over my last nerve and stomped it into the ground over and over. I am a mother, and I would bet the farm most mothers had stooped this low a time or two. But it is so common place.
I perceive this word as an angry word. But I have witnessed people say it without the anger.
So have we become so rude that we disregard other people within hear range. I would never tell anyone to shut up in public. I was not brought up that way.
I still feel it is a angry word.
And anger can never be good.
It brings people to do things that they never meant to do.
Please lets teach our children to be more kind and respectful of others and not say words we know are hurtful and not nice.

Heart 5

I love the look of the cottages in Ireland.

All the flowers and the white fence.

Can you see your self living there?

Walking up the path to a house like this.

Heart 2

I know to worry is a sin.
I have a strong faith.
I knew my dad's surgery was going to be a success. I ask God to watch over him and the surgeon and handed it over to my Lord.
I was not worried.
But today is day 5 after his surgery and he is still not awake.
I know the devil wants me to worry. He wants it to consume of mind and then he can have control over me.
I miss seeing this little grin my dad would give, almost like he is thinking something mischief.
I miss hearing his voice.
But with Gods help and alot of prayer I will hear it again.
Daddy is just resting.
I will wait
Till then
I love you daddy.
