I have Proof!

Chocolate candy is a medicine!

My husband had a conference to go to last week and these were one of the items handed out.  He was very excited to bring them home to me.  1 is skittles...but 2!  are M&Ms.

Now you know the only problem don't you?  How do I eat them....they are so cute!!

Getting Ready for

Memorial Day 2011!

Tomorrow morning EARLY, my husband and I are going to go place flags at the cemetery in town.  We don't have any other big plans.  Just watching the old war movies on TV.

I finally got my table set.  I LOVE how it turned out.  The only thing I wanted that I just could not find was silver star napkin rings.  Or anything patriotic....I went everywhere and found nothing....so I just went with the ribbon.

 I found these cute S&P at Kroger the other day.

 The sweet little bowls are from Target this year.  They only had 2 left!  I think I got the spreaders at Target a couple of years ago.
 I couldn't even begin to tell you where I got the plates.  I have had them for quite a while.  See my red flatware.  Remember I told my hubs that I would use it for Memorial Day, July 4th...
 I can't help it...I think this is just tooooo stinkin cute!
 These were from last year I think.  I just put them in plastic bags and pack away with the Cracker Jacks....

 These are straws.

This is our home....We are VERY PROUD to be an American!
 My kitchen towel...
These are napkins...but I didn't use them this tablescape...had to put one out though...It is perfect!

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  I know it is a time for picnics and barbeques!  But I hope that sometime during these days, you will take a moment to think about the men and women who have and continue to sacrifice so much for our freedom and safety.  God Bless You!

What has Gotten Into Me?

**Edit** Bloggers...please don't think I am not visiting you....but if you don't allow anonymous comments until blogger fixes the Google account thing....some of my comments just won't go through.  I will catch up with you when I can!!**

I don't know!  But I have been doing projects like a nutty person.  But squealing all the way!  I just love my latest creation....

It all started with this shadow box I have had for- ev- er!!
 It has 12 little cubbies...and no they don't come out...so
 that meant I had to measure each square and cut the paper individually.....that took a bit!
 But then as Marty says....I got to play!

 I got the printing blocks on a shopping trip with Karen@Some Days are Diamonds.
 She also sent me this adorable ring box!
Do you all know I love old keys?

 My one and only Frozen Charlotte.

 With the door closed.  I still need a couple of "things"....to completely fill it. Inspiration hit with the star....

Oh...I am a happy girl!!

Wall Words

I love anything with words or the alphabet.  A couple of years ago I ordered a phrase that is very special to my hubby and myself.  But I didn't think I liked the way they turned out.
Today, I learned, I do like them!

This is on the side wall by our bed.  Don't know what took me so long....but now I am thrilled!

Getting Patriotic!

I started getting my Patriotic decor out.  Here is a bit of it....

 I saved these Cracker Jacks from a couple years ago.  They were from Walmart...don't know if they have them this year
 The candle holder I got at a garage sale last week for $2.00.  It is wrought iron and heavy.  I am looking for a blue candle for the empty spot.  No luck yet!

I probably have had the CocaCola lamp for 15 years!
 I bought this at the Dollar Tree about 5 years ago!

 Teapot from CB a couple of years ago.  I think the One Nation from from Kirkland a couple of years ago.
 I just love these ducks waving their flags!
 My precious teddy bear that always reminds me of my Grandma...she always made me paper hats from the newspaper.  The bikes remind me of days gone by from the old towne parades.
My Uncle Sam - he was from one of those candle parties...the book from from the Dollar Tree.

I will be linking with Marty for Tabletop Tuesday.
