I Want to Show You!!

Today for Show and Tell at Kelli's I am showing a few different items that are new around our home.
You all know Katherine from Yellow Rose Arbor. She sent me a goody package and in it was this precious hanging pillow. Black and white. Most of you know I love that black and white! Katherine, you are so sweet, and the package came when I needed a bit of a boost!
The little pillow has the word HOPE dangling from it....a word that is very important to me.

The other item for Show and Tell today is another pillow. This one a friend from church, Melody, gave me Easter Sunday. Well, I am sure most of the congregation heard the squeal over this one. I wish pictures were more showing of how gorgeous this pillow is. There is embroidery all over. A little pocket, my initials and the cluster of buttons. I tell you, I LOVE this pillow. Melody is so talented. She never ceases to amaze me at what she can put together. And quite the talented piano player also! My husband and I just love her family of 3 boys! So, yep, she is busy enough just with that! Thank you so much Melody!

Remember me, when this you see.....

Do you see my initials? CK

Finally, I went to a few estate sales Thursday and I found this precious glass basket. It shines so pretty now that it is clean and I thought it looked so cute with the brown sugar cubes.
Don't forget to visit all the other Show and Tells. There is always something pretty to see or learn something new!

Monday Monday

Hello all you Monday lovers out there. I got up this morning raring to go!
We decided to drive over to IKEA. I had never been there here in AZ. Well, there wasn't much I wanted or needed. Came home and read some blogs, took a short nap, and bunch of little stuff....
Anyways, our tree, for those who asked is a Palo Verde tree. It is still full of blooms even though many have blown off.
This is a close-up of the flowers.

Last week I went to HL. They had Easter 90% off. They had so many precious bunnies, but I had just packed everything away, and I didn't want to I left them for all of you! But I could not resist this louvre that says Welcome. $1.99! I couldn't pass that up!
I don't know about all of you, but I could use a respite on the breaking appliances. First the toilet...then the dishwasher, which I think is fixed, and now today, not that it is broke, but the electric trimmer was deader than a doorknob! It is charging up, hopefully!
Well, that is it for a Monday at my big exciting life!! I bet you wish you had such excitement!! Have a good one.

Sunday Favorites

Chari at Happy to Design is hosting a new meme, Sunday Favorites. This is where we get to publish a previously posted post. The idea here is that some of us miss some of the older posts. I LOVE this idea and especially for a Sunday!

A day of rest! Bring up something we already worked on.

So today I am posting one of my past favs...hope you enjoy!

Ok, I tried, really I did. I planned on doing my Show and Tell, I even got it ready. I mean, it is almost Friday...but I couldn't wait. After I got done squealing, I had to take the pictures, and I had to share them. I know you understand!Hubby needed pop (yes, I am originally from Michigan, and we say pop)...anyways back to the we stopped at the grocery store. He says, "Do you want to come in?" She says, "Well, ok, if you insist. I will just check the clearance table".There they were. Take me home. I heard it plain as day......

These itty bitty little pink rose floating candles. (Breathe....)

I put them in my new cup with the pink roses......

Ok, I just cannot even find words.......Too cute!

Then this afternoon look what came.....2 dozen...I could barely get them in the vase....
My husband is just too good to me.

I am all worn out. This excitement is just about too much. And I didn't even tell you about what I found at the Dollar Tree. That will have to be another day. Squeal overload!

PS. I bought the candles at Fry's Market Place. There are 24 in the package for $3.99. Fry's is owned by Kroger, for those who would like some candles. Glad you all like them!

Tablescape Thursday and Some Other Stuff!

Wonderful Thursday Tablescape at Susan's is here. I finally got the Easter items packed away and on to some more spring like decorations.

This little creamer and sugar is part of a child's silver Tea set. I love to use it when it is just hubby and I or a girlfriend over for holds just the right amount of cream and sugar cubes.

Just a simple setting for two today. Olive green placemat matches the leaves in plate and napkin.

Napkin rings are from Pier One on sale a while back. You have seen the Laura Ashley napkins before. And my good old standby gold flatware.

Hubs surprised me again with this Sorelle tea set. All the rosebuds. It is very delicate.

The little spoon that came with the set....

The top of the cup resembles a heart shape.

Here is the precious tea pot for 2!

My mother's Hull vase. I know it isn't a rose pattern, but the colors are exact of the pink, cream and green.

My dollare tree rose dishes. Don't bother looking....they are about 4 years old and I never seen them again.

I changed the console in the eating area to chickens....hard to get picture with the light from good ole AZ sun!

Well, Nester, there is some good ole fashion fakery!

Added some CB birdies!

This little bee candle from from a wedding shower I went to. It is just too cute and nope, I am not lighting it!!

My large Apothecary jar with a small nest and seed packets.

Because inquiring minds Want to know!!

Yes, my hubs fixed the toilet. He had to rebuild the inside, but it works beautifully. In fact, it is way quieter now and I want him to do ours in our bathroom now too. I got the eyebrow for that!
Hope you all are having a good week. 3 more treatments to go!!! Great report from my doctor on Monday. We were very encouraged.
See you all on Tablescape Thursday!!

Help, I've Fallen and I Can't Get UP!!!

Just kidding! Well, sorta. My hubby didn't fall, but he couldn't get up very easily, that's for sure! We have a leak in our 6'5" hubby is down to try and fix it....
I am surprised the picture is so clear....I was laughing so hard.

We don't know if it is fix yet....will know tomorrow. We may have to call a REAL plumber. Shhh, I didn't say that!

A Pink Saturday Post

I don't usually post items that are not mine, however, when I saw this at Ross the other day, I had to have a picture. I knew the "PINK" lovers at Bev's would flip, and I also knew that Kathy would almost want to fly here to get it for her grandbabies. I was so excited, I didn't even look at the price. I didn't buy it, because I don't think my grandson would have enjoyed it as much as I would have having it. Granddaughter would look so sweet, but I was strong. (or dumb - whichever fits!!) Have a fun and memory filled weekend!

Tablescape Thursday and an Apology!

***Thursday Afternoon - I went for my scan today and received great news. The tumors are dying. I don't know how many more treatments I have to have yet...I will find that out next week. We are so thankful and just keep praying they will totally die and go away! Thank you for all you sweet comments of concern.***

First of all I want to tell my blogging friends that I have done some visiting but...I do not have a laptop. Although I know it seems such a little thing, sitting up in a chair at a desk to blog is, sometimes, just a bit much right now. I almost have my 5 weeks done and will go today to see if I need more. I hope soon to be able to be back I am sorry I haven't been visiting much. These last couple of weeks have been a bit rough, but the end is in site!
My tablescape for Tablescape Thursday at Susan's today is of my Cracker Barrel dishes from last year. Spring bunnies, one last fling!
