a little of this

and a little of that.that's how my days seem to go this time of year. trying to clean out which i will do more of today and re-arranging areas that needed some spiffing up. looks like i downloaded the wrong picture,oh well, i moved this over to the table and added the square plate. i like it better here.
i put some different things on this dresser for a quick change.nothing to exciting but,it makes me happy.
warmer today,thank goodness, 9 above zero this morning! it's a heat wave after the last couple of days!lol!

have a nice day!

guess who we went to visit

yesterday? sweet pea and her momma.... jim was sleeping as he is working the night shift this week. i'm sure glad we went yesterday as it is snowing and blowing this morning and would not make for a nice trip over if we had waited. i just saw k&j a week ago but,it struck me yesterday how much k is changing in her looks. her face seems longer and not as baby full as before and she seems to be looking a bit more like her daddy,i think anyway....
this one cracks me up,i just whispered her name and this is the look i got! like,"yesss,i'm busy here with papa what do you want?" i don't know, that's just how i think it looks,funny!

the pictures aren't the best cause this girl is on the move all the time.i'm sure she will be walking soon!wow! i can't even believe how fast she is growing!

a sorta of,still moment,so i quick snapped k and her polly penguin! she got this for christmas and it's so cute. j said it scared her at first especially when it was turned on to make it's noises. sweet pea did not like that at all and still doesn't so it's shut off and she's fine.

it was such a nice visit.
have a nice day!

after the holiday

decorations are all down the house seems so bare but,i kinda like the simplicity of that after all the lights and baubles etc. i set these "mercury" glass ornaments in this old bowl i got at a tag sale this fall.nothing fancy just simple....and i like it,makes me happy. i found two more "mercury" glass candle holders at the new hob lob on 168th&maple. not as reasonably/cheap as the one i got at target but,close!!

i moved this lamp over to bud's gram's sewing machine. it always sat in the front window but, never got used and always got bumped when i closed the blinds so we will try it here for awhile.
i HAD to do something with this great,funny photo of my sweet pea, so i got this frame and hung it in my laundry room. i was going to do a bunch of frames in there or a storyboard but,decided this was only one thing to dust and that idea won out! ;) the day this picture of sp was taken she was mimicking the faces i was making at her! what a doll face!

part of my sweet pea's first valentine's day gift. love this book and could not resist the heart sun glasses! she will look adorable with them on!

have nice evening!

baby it's cold outside

but,my little sweet pea is all snugly in her pj's from us. her mama sent this photo to me yesterday morning. omg i can't help it, sorry, but, she is so adorable!! just warms my heart when i look at her.... and of course my cully needed some warmin up's rough when the "facilities" are outside don't you know!lol! this was taken right after he came in from the frigid cold! he jumped right up and knew he could get warmed up.
have a nice day!

just a random post

today.the picture on the left was part of our gift from j&j&k, they went to sears and i thought the pictures turned out pretty good. the one on the right, i took when sweet pea stayed with us. i got these very lovely paper mache ornaments from someone special. it was part of my gift,aren't they cool? i love them....
i got this "mercury glass" candlestick holder from target yesterday! it was a whole $2.24!! i love after christmas sales,don't you? ;)

this is our new chair and my faux fir throw i also got yesterday. we decided we liked the family room arranged the way we had it before so when we got $$ from my mom for christmas we decided to get a new recliner and put everything back the way it was before. sometimes it's just best that way,i guess....

as i was looking for a not to busy checkout at target i spied an adorable baby looking at me and guess who it was,yep,my sweet pea and her momma too of course! please excuse the bad photo of me,the adorable part makes up for it right?;)

have a nice day!
