I finished these blocks the other night. I just have not had time to post them. I did list them on ETSY tonight. I love the way they turned out. They really have a vintage feel to them.
I had so much fun doing the giveaway for my 50th post. I'd like to do another giveaway soon.
Want to let you all know that I am going out of town wednesday. I'm not sure if I will be able to post or not. We are going to see our son & daughter-in-law in North Carolina. Will be going to Washinton DC on thursday & friday. I am so excited to go for the visit plus do some site seeing. We have never been to Washington or North Carolina. I know we will have so much fun. I will post photos as soon as possible.
So to each of you have a great week. I'll try to post once more before I leave. I would like to say thank you to all of you that come by for a visit. I love your comments & appreciate you. I can't believe how many new friends I have made. Blogland is such a fun and wonderful place to visit. Hugs to you all *** Renea

So without further delay.............the winner...................Heather Robinson. Thanks to everyone that signed up. I appreciate you all & love for you to visit. You all have given me such sweet encouraging words.
Okay now for the sweet little surprise! Day before yesterday my hubby called me out to the back yard. He said I have something I want you to see. So I followed him out back & this is what he showed me.....look up in the tree..................
Get closer...closer...and see the sweet little birds nest? We found out that it is a dove's nest & she has 2 little eggs in it. I love to listen to the dove's sing late in the afternoon, they coo to each other, a very soft & sweet sound.
Did you know that dove's mate for life? I think that is so sweet. I just love this sweet little nest and wanted to share it with all of my new found blog friends I hope you are all having a great weekend! Hugs***Renea

Wooden Blocks with Children
I had started these wooden blocks this past summer & could not decide what to put on them. So I saw them last night & decided to put children on them. (Maybe I was influenced by my Grandson's that were here all week!) So I will be adding these to etsy sometime this weekend.
We went to San Angelo (TX) today. We meet my daughter & son-in-law, so that we could get the boys (our grandson's) back to them. The boys stayed with us during spring break. San Angelo is about a 1 & 1/2 hour drive from here, & the boys talked all the way there. They are so funny & so witty. We went & saw the movie "Horton Hears A Who". It was a cute & silly movie & perfect for kids. While we were in San Angelo, we went to an antique mall downtown. I found 7 old cigar boxes & 7 old photos all in great condition for only $8.00. I was so excited! What a great find!!! We are back home now & it seems so quite without the boys. I just wish we could see them more often. And my daughter was so cute, she had a cute & sassy hair cut! Okay I've gone on and on, so I will say good night & happy blogging!

We worked so hard this weekend on this bedroom, but I think it all turned out really nice. I love the colors, so soft & subtle. As you can see the lamps are in place, which hubby likes now with the new comforter, framed art & pillows etc...My friend's came over today to see the new look & they too loved the change.

Oh my Gosh...I received my "Pay it forward" gift today in the mail. Oh it was just beautiful. My gift came from Deborah @ pictures, pots and pens. I don't know how Deborah knew that my favorite color is pink, but the little box she sent me was pink with all kinds of goodies inside. Plus everything was wrapped in pink rose tissue paper. I just kept unwrapping wonderful things. There was a little candle in a round tin box, a bar of the best smelling milk bath soap, a pure milk chocolate bar (what woman doesn't love chocolate?), adorable magnets, a note pad that says (both of us can't look good, it's either ME or the house) and also 3 cute little Mary Engelbreit magnets. The 2 refrig. magnets are oh so me! The 1st one states (I only have a kitchen b/c it came with the house), the 2nd (House work can't kill you, but why take a chance) hee hee!! I hate cleaning house! Okay just want to remind you that I still need one more person to participate in the "pay it forward". So if you are interested let me know, leave a comment. If you play you must agree to send the 1st three people who sign up a gift, and I will send you a gift. It's that easy, so room for one more to receive a gift. (Leave me a comment that you want to pay it forward). And Deborah thank you so much for the beautiful package with all the goodies inside, I swear it was like you knew me personally. Again thanks!!! Hugs***Renea
I would also like to say thank you to everyone who left a comment about those great lamps!! HEE HEE!!

Hi everyone! Hope everyone is well, I finally feel like myself, finally have some energy. So after work today went to Stein Mart to look for new sheets. Not only did I find sheets, I also found a new comforter & the cutiest new lamps. I fell in love with these lamps the second that I saw them. My hubby hated the lamps! But I told him, (you are always complaining b/c our lamps don't match, so I'm getting these), he said they looked dumb. Anyways I just couldn't live without them. We will be rearranging our bedroom this weekend & I'll post photos of the end result, but you just have to see these lamps. The lamps have the cutiest little bird nest with robin eggs in the nests & on top of the shade is a little bird. (I currently have a thing for birds)! Anyway let me know what you think? Are they cute or should I have left them in the store?
