Elgin Park

Have you ever been to Elgin Park?
I have and it's awesome!!!!
It is so much fun and Michael Smith has created a wonderful place to visit,I first heard about it watching the CBS Evening News ( I THINK) I was at work and as soon as I got home I jumped online to see Elgin Park for myself. I love it and I want so many pieces of his work, I don't wanna spoil the fun, teehee...so go visit his site and let me know what you think.
I am in NO WAY being compensated for this post, I just really like his stuff and his creativity blows me away.

This week I wanted to share a swap project I did this week, the marvelous Tee at The Altered Paper hosted and my swap partner is Jean Elizabeth at Lilac Lane Livery, I made this for her with using various shades of purples and just a bit of pink. I hope she got it safe and intact and I hope she liked it.
Have a great weekend.

Supporting My Family **Updated**

My oh so georgeous sister in love Amanda

 is now a Scentsy consultant, she has been looking for a home based business so she can stay home with Layden, the bank she works for has been HORRIBLE to her since she got pregnant last year and since she went back from maternity leave; it has been an even more hostile enviroment for her (It's REALLY BAD ) so we are supporting her as much as we can. If you are in need of any of their WONDERFUL products please let me know and I can get you in touch with her, also I copied her fb page post about her launch party so here is some of the info as well.
"Had a great Scentsy Lanch Party this afternoon. If you weren't able to make it and were still interested in the products, please visit my website at www.amandablanchard.scentsy.us and use the link under open parties to make purchases.  Feel free to e-mail me with any questions or concerns. I will keep my party open until Wednesday (June 15th) evening."
I had to work and couldn't be there so I ordered from her website.
We love you Amanda and wish God's blessings over this new venture.

****OK I have never used Scentsy products and I was unable to attend her Launch party because of work so I ordered via Amanda's website on Tuesday, I got my order at 1:15 Friday! I am so impressed, I really didn't think I'd see it for another week at least, and their packaging was great, the wax was shipped in an insulated bag WITH ICE PACKS to keep the wax from melting, and it is HOT here today. The warmer was packaged well and I am already using it, I have the Peach A la Mode (3 little bars off the brick) warming and it smells so good. I am impressed with this company****
I am in no way being compensated for this post, I just really want to support my sister and I am thrilled with the service they have given.

Today I am missing folks. I love so many people that I hardly ever get to see or talk to and I miss them all. My sister in law Angela, she and I connected so quickly and I have only been with her a few days once almost 4 years ago, I miss her all the time and my nieces and my nephew, I love them all! My Brothers in law and my mother and faither in law, they all mean so much to us and the relationships are...well they just aren't there and it makes me so sad, and my heart aches for them. My family is so close and Lee's is so distant, I tried for years to keep us all connected, I failed so it is what it is BUT  I love them all so much! I think I'll get off the computer and make a few calls.
I keep trying.....

Pink Saturday

Hey there all my pink loving friends. Happy Pink Saturday to you.
Since y'all seemed to like my little mini depression glass replicas last week;  I figured I'd post one a week for the next few weeks. I only have 6 sets so we have 4 more after this one. This is the first set I got it's set number 3 in their(Mosser Glass) collection
I remember when I took off the wrapping paper and saw the box I had NO IDEA who Mosser Glass was or what was in the box.

 Then I opened the lid and fell in love with the cute little "Dinner Plates".
My mom finds the best gifts.

These plates really could be used as a dessert plate, hmmm I'm thinking
Petite Fores or Cupcakes.
I love my little mini's and I hope y'all are enjoying them as well.
Thanks Beverly for hosting such a great group!

What a response to my pretty pink mini dishes! I have decided that over the next few Pink Saturdays I will post one set a week, I think I have 6 sets so 5 more pink weeks are all planned out. I hope y'all like them. my sister Beth has the green sets to match my pink ones.

So how was your weekend?
Saturday morning Lee and I went to the Friends of the Library book sale we LOVE to go to that for 3 reasons
1. We like to support the Library we often use.
 2. We are voracious readers and it's a great way to stock up cheap.
 3. Fill any size bag to the brim for $5.00    ANY SIZE!!!
There was a guy there last year with a feed sack about 4 feet long he filled 2 while we were there for only $5 a bag. We don't need that many books so we used our reusable shopping bags and filled 2 I think we got about 35 or 40 books one full of hardbacks and the other full of paperbacks for $10. We are such nerds that was the hi-light of our week :)
We can't afford to go to the bookstore anymore so this is great for us.
See you soon,

Pink Saturday

Hey there all my fellow pinkies, how was your week?
For my post I picked my miniature depression glass from Mosser Glass. My Mom ordered these for me years ago. I have 6 or 7 different sets this is set #2, I'll share the rest over time I am sure. The pattern is called Jennifer and is available in a bunch of colors, for me she chose the pink! She knows  I have a small collection of Pink depression glass. So these are a great compliment. I don't really have a spot to display them so they stay safe in their boxes for now, one day I want a little curio just for them. I am taking these photos in the dead of knight so they are not lit well.

I hope you have a great week and I'll see ya again soon!
