Mid WEekend & LOok at all the GOod Stuff!!

What are you doing this weekend?
The weather here today was 51 degreees. It's great to see the ice melting away but the mud is a mess to deal with too.
I didn't do much today. Stopped at Rite Aid to pick up a few things we needed and back home. I havent felt really up to par today.
Right now I am sipping some Sprite and catching up on all the great blogs. You have been busy!!
I mean, look at some of the great posts I found............

Michelle finally has power restored. She is also a greyhound mommy and rescue activist. Did you see the bear she made from an old fur coat? I think it's super!

Ki has lots of great t2t items to browse through and the junk forum is always a great place to visit. :)

Janene has some more major thrift store scores. Did anyone firgure out if that was a real firkin bucket? That thing is huge!!

Dot has got rid of the wall border.
I think her hubby is still needing chocolate and pepsi though. :)

Angie is a girl after my own heart. We both love the start of N_ _ _ _ _.
If you want to know what that is, stop over at her blog!!

Terri is having a great giveaway for this time of year. Stop over and sign up.

Janae posted some pics of her bedroom. She is wanting to give it a redo.

Leslie made a very cool drawstring bag. Have you seen it? She also post info on uploading pics to your blog. easy peasy!! Thanks!!!
p.s. Leslie, I have never gotten pop ups from visiting your blog. Don't fret girl. :)

I want to give Lisa a great big thank you!! She sent me a heart make-do! She had made one for a giveaway and made another for me!! I love it!! (there is a pic on her blog).
Did you see her thrift store scores?? Great job!!!!

Rondell has been finding some great goodies too!! I think the candle and boxes turned out great!!

Melissa always has great ideas too- definitely alot of paper projects and redo ideas.

Now these are just a few of the blogs that I have had a chance to scroll down through.
Want to see more? Well, check out my blog roll!!
p.s. if you visit any of these gals , tell them I posted about them. :)

I am off to read some more.......................


  1. Thank you for sharing these links. I enjoyed reading them too. How is your dad today?

  2. I find the best new blogs from your site, girl! Hope you get to feelng better!

  3. Thanks for the updates :) I need to find time to sit down and check out some other blogs on people's blog rolls...only thing is I get so into it that I find myself stuck at the computer for hours....And my blog roll gets longer and longer...lol

    Janene's firkin is HUGE isn't it? I wonder if it's just like a reproduction one, kind of like the one I found a few months ago that was a Snack container. Oh, and I have another that is only half of a firkin to hang on the wall! I haven't used it in years because it's attached to this scrolly looking piece of wood and I need to cut that stuff off.

    Have a great rest of your weekend :)


  4. I like your blog design. I clicked on the link and changed my blogspot, too. Thanks for the link. Listen to your body and take it easy today.

  5. I am happy that you like your suprise goody! I remembered that you commented on how much you liked it, so i thought you should have one! Hugs

  6. Sounds like you age getting caught up on your reading...I have been working on another punch needle...I will post it later. Dianntha

  7. Thanks for the t2t plug. Glad to hear things are better with your dad. I can relate to your post. I am spending the winter with my parents for the first time since I was 18. They are dealing with health issues and I am fortunate to be able to pick up my business and be with them. They enrich my life every single day. They too, have changed physically, but it reminds me how precious our time is together and to be thankful for every minute.

  8. Morning girl..thanks for giving me a shout out here in blogland! lol I stayed in that kitchen all day yesterday tweaking and putting stuff back together...stil haven't even touched the big wall by the new hutch! lol I thought I was gonna need some chocolate and Pepsi by the time I finally figured out what to do with the window over the sink to make it match the one in the dining room! lol Finding this Happy Place is tough stuff! lol lol Have a great week my friend!
