So did you all enjoy your nice long week-end? The weather here in Wisconsin was beautiful....lots of sunshine and no rain. Today it is raining and it will be a chilly day but that's good for all the new plants in my garden.............nice soft rain to help them get established.
I am going to spend the day catching up on bills, paperwork, laundry and housework. With good music playing in the background the day goes pretty fast and the chores don't seem too bad.
Enjoy your Tuesday!

You can leave only 1 comment each day until we reach the mark and if you send someone over to enter.......have them mention your name for an extra entry. Also if you become a follower of my blog you will get an extra entry. So do you wanna see what's in the RAK?
We have the scalloped Cameo squeeze punch from Fiskars. We have a tin of brads. Two packages of flowers with brads. 4 different colored ribbons. A mini bird album. 3 paks of raindots, 2 paks of heart embellishments and some neat glitter leaves embellishments. Lots of fun goodies and I love my scalloped squeeze punch (this is an extra that I got at the warehouse sale).
So post it on the other boards you visit and make sure they mention that you sent them. I wonder how long it will take to hit 250 comments??? Thanks for visiting!

The 2nd part of this layout I found a picture of Todd when he was just a child at Great America pretending to drive this antique Ford. The big yellow truck was his first vehicle he pulled with and then along came the red & black one that my grandson Alex is standing next to. He keeps moving up to bigger & better trucks but that is what the game is all about. I cut the letters out of some silver metallic paper with my Cricut and the brads I used to dot the i's were from this line.

This card was just a simple hello card made with some butterfly stamps that I had. It's nice to have a collection to fall back on especially as the weather finally turns nice I will be spending more time in bed..............my flower beds that is!!

These cute little camouflage boots were found at a garage sale and might soon get a little plant in them.......not sure yet but they look darn cute in one of my flower beds! Plus the weather still needs to warm up before I take out the 20 morning glory plants that were started from seed. The weather still has been in the 50's & 60's with even chillier temps at night. Just a few days ago it got down to 32. Next Monday we will see 70 again but right now it is rainy & chilly! Sounds like a good day to get some cleaning done in my scraproom since I just got 2 new kits in the mail the past few days and I can't start them until I get everything back in place. Have a great day everyone!

Last Saturday I went garage saling with a friend and found some amazing things for my scraproom. The first one started out as glass jars on a spiral turntable that was meant for spices but I could see buttons in them. I spent one night watching tv and sorting buttons by colors and here is the end result. Not the greatest picture but I'm sure you get the drift.
I also found some complete NEW sets of stampin up...........one matched a truck set I just got a few months ago at full price and the other is some adorable kinda sassy stamps. $5 each set....you can't beat that price! There are more to this set but these 3 were so cute. Make sure you click on the picture so it enlarges and you can read them.
Last but not least I found this at Goodwill and it is a huge wooden bird house storage unit. It must stand 4 feet tall and has a terrific magnet latch that is strong. I think it's gonna need some of my TLC as far as some painting etc but I think it will be nice out on the patio and store some of the things we use often.
We have had some nice sunny days so I have doing allot of yard work for the past 4 days. I have moved some perennials and weeded flower beds and last nite after getting the pond all cleaned out we replaced the pump and got that running. Now all we have to do is add fish LOL! Last year we had a couple of dozen different goldfish swimming in there but come winter we gave them away to good homes so time to start over. I have collected many yard/garden decorations over the past 7 years so it takes time to haul them all out and find a good place for them too. But the end is worth it when we sit on our swing and gaze over the pond and the gardens......it is so peaceful...........our own private retreat. During the winter the retreat is my scraproom but I love being outside and today we saw our 1st hummingbird at our feeder too. Gotta love spring!
