Pink Saturday

Hey Y'all,
How are you today?
I am busy as a bee here today.
I am leaving tomorrow evening for my training in Richmond, so I am trying to get everything washed so I can pack, everything clean so Lee won't have to worry over it and enough cooked so he has meals all week.
I am pooped already...ha ha ha.
PLUS I am turning 40 tomorrow.
Anyhow, on to the Pink.
The most lovely Elizabeth at Creative Breathing  sent me a sweet as can be package of Hearts, embellishments, ribbon and a Valentine Cutie Hedgehog felt character she so lovingly made, his hide is made of hearts :)  so that I could make a wreath similar to the one she made.

      She knows my affinity for the heart shape, if you didn't know I love hearts.
and here is what I did.
I started with this really awful wreath that was meant to be a Christmas card holder, I got this as a gift 
(um, I don't think she liked me very much....ha ha ha)
It didn't take much to strip it down, I used this for 2 reasons; first no one in Franklin had any wire wreath frames in stock, second I am trying to follow Elizabeth's lead and use what I have on hand.

And here is what I came up with 
Thank you Elizabeth for the lovely gift.
You always make my heart happy!

Have a great day Y'all.
X's & O'

Pink Saturday

Hey Y'all
How are ya?
It is snowing like crazy here (YAY! I LOVE IT)
We are expected to get 2-3 inches tonight.
I have not participated in Pink Saturday in forever, I miss it ever so much.
So for today I wanted to share a great deal I scored back in October
Back in June when I was in North Carolina visiting my cousin, we went to a junk shop and I saw this 
pink depression glass cookie jar and fell in love with it. BUT it was $35 and that was not in my budget.
Well when we went back to visit in October we went back to the same junk shop and it was still there.
It has 2 tiny itty bitty chips in the lid but other than that it is perfect and Pink Depression glass is my favorite.
So I take it to the counter, it has lost it's sticker of $35 and the guy at the counter asks if I got it from inside or outside? Inside I tell him, he says how about $5.  SOLD!
I want to go back and see if I can get the rest of the lot. They had a ton.
So that is my little score.
Happy Pink Saturday.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hey Y'all
Do you love this day of affection?
I do.
Lee (Bless his heart) STINKS at Valentine's Day...ha ha ha he never gets it right.
BUT the man loves me just the way I am and I love him and that is really all that matters.
So tell everyone you love that you love them and share a ton of hugs and kisses today!

Hey Y'all,
It has been too long since my last post!
Things have been busy around here.
First of all I am so excited to say that one of my family is going to make me an aunt again!
As I have not been given the ok to share the big news I can't tell ya who just yet...but rest assured I will as soon as I can.
Second, I have just been given a promotion at work. For those of you who don't know I work for the worlds largest retailer. You know the one ...WM.
Well I have been there for just over 4 years, I have moved up the ladder at a fairly steady pace since I started and starting Monday I am in management. Assistant Manager to be exact :)
This is a great big blessing for us, it means a significant financial increase and steady hours and schedule.
I am going to have to leave Lee for 8 weeks for training. I will be in Richmond m-f and home on the weekends, he is pouting already...ha ha ha.

Third, I have been a bit crafty, but have not taken a photo of anything yet, so I will show you my handy work another day.
Fourth, I Love the month of February. Do you have a favorite month? I have 3 February, October and December. There is just something about those times of year I just adore. Well I love February for several reasons, it is winter, Valentine's Day, our niece April's birthday, my sister Laura's birthday, my best friends Julia and Nathan's birthdays, and my birthday.
I love my birthday, I always have and always will. My parents always made our birthday's special when we were kids and it has carried me through adulthood. This year I will be 40! I don't feel 40 most days. I do not have any hang ups about it.

Fifth, I am going to be in a book that comes out this month. Y'all I can't tell you how tickled I am about it!
I love the books Joanne Fluke has written, LLLLOOOONNNNGGG story short is she posted on facebook she would like some simple recipes to try and maybe add to her books, so I sent her a family favorite of ours and she decided to use the one I sent in her new book! In addition the character she created to explain where the recipe came from is named Jenny and helps her to solve a murder. The book comes out on February 26 and I can't wait to get my copy!
Well I guess that is enough news for now.
I love  y'all bunches :)
