Oh soooo sweet!

Thanks everyone for the well wishes! Devyn is doing great and is pretty much back to normal today. Check out this stance at our back door :) Nooo shoes already! Girl is going to be a flip flop year around---I can tell now can't keep a shoe or sock on her more than a minute.

Here's a picture from the wedding last weekend down in W.Palm Beach FL. It was 85! The ocean was actually warm.
It was a LONG day. Poor thing is looking at me saying when are we EVER going to go home :)

I wanted to share these sweet cones I started on a couple of weeks ago and have been sitting forlornly in my dining room waiting for all their finery. I finished them today and I think they came out darling. Perfect for upcoming spring and Easter. They are part vintage goodness and new items. I just love the color combos--something a little different and the vintage blue flower is just gorgeous. I rummaged through a HUGE (blushing) tupperware bin (you know those storage ones!) that is overflowing with ribbons and found the perfect match!

The rose paper cone has a vintage strawberry and I used fabric to make the cute covering on the top.

Off for sushi tonight since we couldn't afford W.Palm Beach seafood prices--egads what a rip off! High season right now and prices are awful!
I hope to do a little more crafting tomorrow but we'll see.

Have a great weekend!

What's Happening!?

Life has been a whirlwind for me lately. Spring has come to the South. All weekend we enjoyed having all the windows open, a nice cool 67 degrees with a whisper of a breeze! The last couple of work days have been the same. I really have to say it's refreshing! I sit and listen to the breeze, smell the fresh air, listen to my neighbor's fountain that streams into his pool...it's so relaxing and energizing the start of Spring in the South. It's much different from my childhood growing up in New York where Spring would spurt and tease you here and there for quite some time.

Devyn and I spent Saturday hanging on our deck, cleaning out my disaterous dining room (aka art desk). I haven't seen the top of my dining room table in months! It took 3 hrs and it's still not fully done. Sunday we went to the zoo.

Now we are packing for our trip to Ft Lauderdale, FL to arrive Friday, the 13th for my mother in law is getting re-married after 30 years on Valentine's Day! She has known this man a long time. She just moved down there to retire--I wish her all the best.

We get back on Monday. On Wednesday, Devyn has to have surgery. 16mos old--having tubes put in her ears. I have been told by many a Mom that it is so common. Her specialist said so too but being a first time Mom, I'm going to worry! I just want her to feel better. The specialist has confirmed her hearing has been muffled so a few weeks later we'll have a hearing test. I'm praying she is okay but if not, we will learn to deal with it. Her speech has been slow to master but she does understand what you mean--just won't do much beyond babble. She is trying soooo hard though. It's frustrating for me to see her get frustrated to try to communicate. We are mastering sign language and routine helps.

So I haven't created much lately but promise to get back in the groove shortly.
Hope everyone is doing well and I'll be back soon.

I'm off to find a precious bunny for my little girl to help her through her recovery. Both her and I love bunnies (or bun-buns as we call them)and why I included this sweet image.

Anyone have any recommendations? I really like to buy homemade.

Devyn's class is having an exchange for Valentine's Day. I made these packets of goldfish for the little one's (There are 8 kids total and all are between 12mos -18mos old) so no staples, ribbons, etc. The 2 teachers I made felt baggies with vintage ribbon handles and filled with chocolates-Yum! Who says they can't have a goodie :)
I love the ladybug theme for something a little different.

I normally don't make many cards but with so much out there I thought I would give it a try and everything coordinates!

These 2 are for Devyn's teachers:

This one is for my parents:

This one is for my hubby:

I just had to share these sweet vintage pretties I received from Julie . If you haven't checked out her book, Pretty Little Felts. You need too, some of the cutest and inspiring projects in there.

I'm off to work on some projects and then relax. Homemade chili is waiting in the crockpot and the Superbowl is tonight.

Have a great week!
