Good Morning Friends....



I'm not quite sure what's going on but I seem to be having a difficult time getting to the computer these days. Yesterday it didn't even get turned on.......sorry poor neglected little way too old to do anything quick enough for it's owner computer. I'm afraid to say any more just incase it gets it's feeling hurt and dies on me:)


Well, yesterday was Easter and the Bunny was extra generous with the boys. Jake got a new skateboard complete with all kinds of pads to keep ER visits to a minimum....I hope. And Alex got his first "Big Boy" bike. We normally don't give big gifts for Easter but their Birthday's are in mid and late summer so we figured they would get more use out of them if we gave them earlier. We both agreed that we would "Cut Back" on the birthday gifts when the time comes....yeah right! Jake is on holiday from school this week but Alex is not.....oh the drama! You can imagine the morning I had trying to get one dresses while the other was laying on the couch watching cartoons in his jammies!


We had an Italian Easter here. Lasagna, meatballs, garlic bread. No, I'm not one ounce Italian but I got a free family size lasagna from the grocery store so it was a done deal! God do I hate to cook. Lots and lots of goodies though. My mom's famous sour cream pound cake, orange dream pie, Chocolate cake and we stole some treats from the easter baskets as well. Shhhhh!


My sister gave me a shelf that she bought two of from a garage sale and I decided to use it in my studio. So I took down my inspiration board and installed my new inspiration shelf. I painted it a funky hot pink to complement my colorful armoire.
Have a great day!!!

Sounds like you have a wonderful Easter! The boys are so cute with their Easter loot!

I was very lucky my hubby did all the cooking :)

Love the pink shelf - so funky fun!

Happy Spring!

Sounds like the perfect Easter to me- very little cooking (and lasagna)! Have to admit, the older I get the more I hate to cook...

The boys are adorable- they look very thrilled with the Easter Bunny...

Hey I finally got your prize on my blog...sorry it took me so long, but I love it!!

Sounds like a great Easter! I would rather bake goodies than cook any day! Love your shelf, wish I had one!I love the look on your boys faces! I thought I had it bad with my kids off for 10 days-it would be worse if it was only one of them! Have a great day!

Sounds like you guys had a great Easter! I forgot to get pics of my son with his Easter basket or collecting the eggs. The boys look very happy with what they got:)
I love the shelf. I have one almost exactly like it in a deep red that I brought back from CA that belonged to my grandmother. I love how you displayed your work on it. I may have to arrange something as nice on mine.

I thought of you today. I have been working on dolls with pink hair and polka dots. I think they look like what your painted dolls would have looked like as kids!

michelle said...

Thanks for liking mu dolls! I guess they aren't quite as polka dotty as I was thinking, just their legs. Still I guess I also imagined your girls in toile! Have a great day!
