Thanks everyone for the nice Anniversary Wishes. We had a pretty quiet evening.. out for dinner and then back home to watch a movie. After looking to see what was on at the theater.. we decided, just to watch something here. It was a nice evening.


There are a couple of things I keep wanting to remember to share with you. You know how you're just looking around , and see things ,that just make you so hmmmm

Well I thought this was pretty Cool... check out this Outdoor Chandelier

and you know how I love my rice sock?.. well, check this out Rice Warmer

And these cute Cookie Bouquets you can make with your kids.

*** Just some fun stuff I wasted to pass along***


Okay.. time to get down to it...

It's Friday... Taylors Sketch day.

Here is Sketch #57

The image is from the Birds and Botanicals Image and Journal Book from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage.

The tree in the background on the front of the card, and this sentiment on the inside, are from the New "Garden Girls" Set from Crafty Secrets.

They always have great sentiments.
