3 or more lovies

Can I just gush a moment over how fun it was to give all this to my girl sweeties that live on my street.
6 girls from 1st to 4th graders.
They couldn't wait to see what I had for them.  The card has been signed and has scripture on it and cute farm animals, they got to select a pencil and they got heart shaped ring pops...fun stuff.

Nate's Room Mom gave 1 to each classmate!
I made this fruit bouquet!
I'll show you soon all the steps.
I can't believe I was brave enough to try it.
HobbyLobby 50% off had to have.  Can't wait to buy those candy corns next yr. 
Reminded me of Sue Loves Cherries
             and ColoradoLady.
And now..all of the vintage Post Cards seen this week.
Kroger's grocery 50% off finds. 
The 4 acrylic heart glasses are gonna be cute for my family
and match up with my pink and red heart bowls.
The coffee mugs were $1 each, maybe fill and gift.
Do you realize how much a little gift blesses
those around you?
And, I also hit Walgreens ($1.50 bags of M&Ms were flying off the shelves), CVS pharmacy,
Michael's (did NOT score the Martha Stewart heart punch I wanted) and World Market for 50% off. 
I never get to hit the next day sales but I did this time because I'm all about the LOVE.

I'm grateful for bargains and inspiration I find in blogland
to Love those around me and to Bloom.

xox, DeniseMarie

I'm gonna see what's up, come with me:
