Maunday Thursday

Have you ever noticed the morning of Maunday Thursday always feels heavy and sorrowful??  It is gonna be a gorgeous day here in Texas.  I am off to my Pre-K class.  The room is all set up for our feast.  We are hunting eggs today.

Tech diff

All of a sudden...I can't find my Picasa pics.  My phone acts like it is posting them but I go to retreive them and nutt'n!
I gotta find a Blog Diva to help me!!  It is full on baseball season.  I took my oldest son for his 2nd appt. with a Chiropractic specialist.  I feel good about him because he is also an athlete.  He explained everything he was doing to Jake.  Jake is a Varsity pitcher and he is having arm/shoulder issues.  He is on his 2nd week of NO game-time as his body recovers from a "micro trauma"  (what the Dr. called it). 

About to see about loading up my Swap box and sending it off to Oregon.  I have had so much fun!!  I hope you can join us next time.

Bloomin thru Fibro woes today, DeniseMarie

Creamware Dreams

I finally couldn't stand it this past Fall/Winter season.  I had to have a beagle plate!
Spode Woodland series just goes on and on!!  But, a beagle...I can NOT resist.  I already have the real thing here, Jack Beagle, but still...
I believe there was a special deal at Char-Crews before Christmas.  I jumped on it even though I wasn't suppose to spend another $$.  I think I got 25% off and free shipping if I spent a certain amount.  That started the whole hoard!
Did ya know that Beagles eat/chase/hunt Bunnies?!  I love bunnies, they are everywhere on my property.  So, since Beagle Run Cottage days, I always have my tongue in my cheek about beagles and bunnies.  Had to have bunnies!!  Thrifted the covered dish bunny several yrs ago.
Did ya know that brown bunnies go white in the winter?!  I read that somewhere when I was drooling over these dishes on E-bay for months.  I did find a few that way.
I had to put the duck in there? They had like 20% off at Tuesday Morning and I got small ducks.   For goodness sakes...I thrifted the covered dish last yr.  My mom has the ugliest duck lamp/planter that I know is olden and valuable.  I laughed at it for yrs when I went over there... but now...I want it!!  I have to have it for my Woodland set.  I can just see it on the sideboard when I use these dishes. 
Couldn't pass this up thrifting after finding all these beauties. 
Did I ever tell ya that my son is a Falcon at school and on the baseball team?!  He should have a dinner on a falcon plate before a big game...don't you think?  He has an over-use injury right now and I need to get these ready for his 1st game back pitching!!
Must I stop with Spode Woodland?  Can't I mix and match?
Gorgeous plates I etsy shopped.  I was getting everything in sets of 2 so I could build a tablescape.  These creamware are the 1st dishes Hubby has every really liked.  He likes all the warm tones.
My mom and I antiqued at Christmas together and she spied this for like $6.
gotta love the back of the plates.

Glorious plate that looks like the estate 1 would hunt from for a get-away from politics.
Now, Y'all know why I got all gittery when I saw Sweet Bee with this in her Etsy.  "Falcon Feathers" or Eagle??  around the rim!!
Next time U see these...I'll have them all decked out for a meal.  I have fun accessories to show n tell.

Love, love, love me some dishes!!

Banner Over Me

Jennifer Rizzo's blog is 1 of 6 blogs involved in this 6 Days of Spring Linky.  Go check out all the details.
Nate and Hubby got home from the grocery the other day and they had gotten me some white mini roses and purple filler.  It is beautiful and brightened up my week.

Look what needs some lovin..
My mantel has been stripped of it's valentine's banner and awaiting my Spring inspiration.  I will use burlap...antique post cards...trim...ribbon.  Just hasn't struck me yet.
This hangs in front of me as I do my dishes.  I found the dogwood blossom on Pinterest and fell in LOVE!!  Hubby and I got engaged during the Dogwood Festivals in East Texas. 

Got this hung for Nate who throws shot put and discus.  He is also on a select baseball team so the baseballs have his team name and protect the plate.  He plays 1st base.

Jake can't fix his hair without seeing what I made for him either. lol  Keep Calm and throw strikes.  Love it!!  his jersey # and team cheer.
Happy crafting...Ladies!!
I have a lot more Spring fluffing to do!!
