Full Bloom

Sometimes if you wait just a couple of
days you can view things in a whole new perspective.

Just Listed On My Etsy !

I just thought this scarf was so cute when I came across it in my travels. I call it my " Bathing Beauties Scarf ". All of the girls from different places wearing their bikinis. It's now available to you on my Etsy. It measures 29" x 10" so I thought it might be cute wrapped around a ponytail at the beach or on a cruise!

I Love My Easter Swap Goodies !

Joy from ~
was my swap partner for the
Easter swap
hosted by Noelle from
Lil' Bits And Pieces Of Me .
She sent me such a beautiful
assortment of things starting with
her handmade card , tag, and
decorated round box.
I love all of them. She also
sent me two Asiatic lily bulbs.
Those will be added to my garden
as soon as it's warm enough.

She sent me this yummy

Lindt Gold Bunny !

The chocolate bunny wouldn't fit

in my covered dish so hubby said

that I should bite the ears off &

I did. He's fitting better & better

every day now !

I just love these handmade

Easter magnets and little

miniature food charms.

She also included this bunny, pretty eggs , &
little sugared chick.
I even found a special spot
for this pretty crystal on
a ribbon that she gave me.

And of course I just love the card she made

me . This is the decorated envelope

above and below is my Easter card.

I have most of the items she

gave me displayed on my hutch.

Thank You Joy !

Estate Sale Find

How cute is this doll ??

******************

I really love her, I just got her at

an estate sale. She's all cloth,

her body is soft and made from

the same material as her

dress. Her face is made of some

kind of real fur . Also her ears

are only attatched to her hat

and not her head . I

really love her green eyes.

She's going to live with me now.

Afternoon Sunshine

This afternoon I came into the house after
working in my yard & looked toward

This is what I saw.
The bright afternoon sun comming

leaving a beautiful shadow
like a piece of art.

Sugar Easter Eggs

Take A Peek .
I think sugar eggs are beautiful.
They are also very interesting.

They are little worlds

all of their own.

They are intriguing.
I am drawn to them.
I am drawn to the miniature

world inside.

Nana & Grampa just settled down to relax
after a very tiring day. They just moved into
their new farmhouse that's not quite
finished yet but they were anxious &
didn't want to wait.
*************
Nana was just dozing off when the
doorbell rang and the dogs started
barking .......
Nana & Grampa both jumped up because
they weren't expecting anyone.
They opened the door and were shocked
at what they saw.
Someone had left two babies in a basket
right outside their door.
It appears that they are twins and
one is a girl and one a boy.

Nana is so upset that anyone would do this ,

she starts to feel faint &

she is crying.

The two dogs & the cat are all very

curious. None of them are sure what

is going on.

They bring the babies inside and now the two

are crying so Grampa rocks the basket.

It seems to be helping ,
so Nana is happy.
Nana & Grampa know what has to be
done next. They need to call someone
to report this and find a safe place
for the babies to go.
Now that they've made the phone call & wait
for help to arrive Nana decides to play
the piano and sing a lullaby so that
the babies will sleep.
Nana & Grampa know where
they will be brought.....
This sweet little set of twins
will now be up for adoption
on ......
ETSY
So many ladies go to ETSY
that Nana & Grampa know
the twins will end up in a good
home.

Yes, I Collect Music Boxes

What you see in these pictures is just part
of my growing collection of music boxes.

I have a good size wall unit in the same

room as my four dollhouses and it holds

the bulk of my collection.

Every time I enter this room the dogs follow

me and jump on the couch and then I always

grab a music box and wind it up.

Most of the songs are happy little songs so

listening to them makes me feel good.

Pairing this collection in the same room as my
dollhouses and miniatures just makes the room
into a little magical haven.
I think I have close to sixty music boxes now.
So now my hunt for music boxes is starting to
narrow to only ones that I think are adorable
or songs that I don't have yet.
I have a few others that are quite old and
some expensive so I keep them downstairs
with me and give them a wind every so often
so I can enjoy the happy little tune.
