Sonic and the Walrus

SonicKitty welcomes you in to a new and exciting week with his Walrus toy.  He has a gray seal too and he is hysterical when he gets ahold of them.

This is a huge pile of blue and red. 
I have many projects to show ya'll thru-out the Winter and Spring.  Here is a peak at where my heart is when the laundry is still sitting in a pile....

My mom and I hit my fav resale shop and I got the bottom frame for $1.01 to re-vamp to put this treasure into.  This hangs in my youngest son's room in this cheezy blue frame and I want to give it better prominence.  I may matt it with fabric or posterboard.  My mom did this in grade school.  I love using olden frames. 

I bought this beautiful ribbon at Hancock fabrics on a 70% off clearance table.  I love it!!  It is a by the yard roll and I bought the whole roll.  It says Blessings in silver down the center.  I want to use it for baby gifts and Easter and teacher gifts this Spring.  I would have paid top $$ to order it on line as a custom ribbon so I had to have it ($6 for 15 yards).  I have 3 younger cousins right now all over the country that have had babies so as the oldest girl cousin I'm trying to send love gifts to babies...Tegan, Nathaniel and Chaibella.  I like to wrap the gift in white tissue and I used the ribbon to wrap all the way around the items and tied a bow on the top so the 1st thing they see when they open the gift is the blessing ribbon. 

5 gorgous blue plates that coordinate beautifully with the piles I have going in my cupboard.  I'm working on this cupboard to gussy her up a bit. 

Hubby is not as much into the mix and match that I love for our dishes and sheets, but I cant' help it. 

Love and Blessings, DeniseMarie

  1. Nice post! You covered everything! Love your laundry pile. Your kitty toys are neat. I never heard of a walrus toy.

  2. I'll bet that toy has catnip in it. I love those baby blue dishes and that ribbon. Happy Blue Monday!

  3. Hi Denise I so love your dishes. I am into mix and match too they do look very pretty. Thanks for sharing!


  4. Wow! Now that's what I call a great all purpose post. Your kitty cat is so pretty. My big boys would probably love the walrus toy. Where did you get it?
    The blue plates were beautiful, I loved the soft shade of blue.
    Mix and match dishes I love. If it's good enough for Martha Stewart it's good enough for me! She had pictures and a article once, on mixing dishes and it was beautiful.


  5. love the dishe's, sweet post today


  6. I have total plate envy! I would love to own your blue plates & white plates...swoon worthy. And the ribbon is beautiful and so fitting for the occasion.

  8. I LOVE those blue plates! And the little red heart bowls too. I like any kind of dishes with scalloped edges!
    Happy REDnesday!

  9. Denise, I always look forward to your posts each week! All I can say is, "At least your laundry is folded!" Mine's still in the dryer from yesterday and I'm pretending it doesn't exist!

    Good bargain on the ribbon - it's perfect for so many things. And I love those blue plates - they do match (or mismatch) the pink ones perfectly! Don't listen to what hubby says about that - "he's not the boss of you" when it comes to decorating! LOL!

  10. I love mix & match dishes ,too.
    Happy Rednesday !
