Sweet Snails

I got a few vintage goodies in the mail box today. One thing is this beautiful vintage Sears blanket. I just love the roses on it. Another was this adorable snail planter. I don't know why snails are so adorable to me. Even real ones. LOL   I'm not sure where I am putting him. But I know I will find a place.

I've had these little snail salt and peppers for a long time. Now it's a snail family of three. My sister is coming over and we are going to hit a few antique stores. My kind of fun! I hope you have a blessed and happy Saturday!

A Baby Shower Gift...

Our neighbor is having a baby and I was invited to the I got to have a lot of fun buying for a baby girl! Every one we know has had boys over the last few years, so it was fun to actually get to buy for a girl. This basket Savanah had painted for her sister in law, thinking she was having a girl....but it was a boy. So she didn't get to use it. I decided to use it for this shower.

I got this tag from fabfindsanddesigns on instagram. I thought it would be cute added to the bow on the basket.

I had this wrapping paper for ages so it was perfect to wrap the diapers.

I filled it blankets and clothes and crib sheets and a few other baby essentials....

Then added this tag from Mary Jane at The Beehive Cottage blog. I love these tags she makes they are just so cute! And then it was ready to give. 

A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb His reward.

Happy President's Day!  I have a some very random things to share with you... First is our doorbell button gave up the ghost and we replaced it with a shiny new one... It makes me happy. I know it's the little things.

This is my Valentine Door Wreath. My neighbor made it for me and I added the heart for Valentines.

Levi growing so big.... He's on a skateboard here. But he is right around my height now. So soon he will be taller than me. tear, tear.

The Azalea's are blooming and I just love how pretty they are.

By the road...

Frank got us a new mailbox since someone bent ours. A common problem in the back roads...

My hubby had these delivered to the door Friday. So pretty. And so sweet. He is a very sweet man. We spent Valentines together. We went shopping and to Longhorn for Lunch. And we may have stopped at Sweet Frogs for dessert... but don't tell the kids...

On Saturday I found this at an antique mall for $10.00. I have been wanting a pink cow creamer for a while... so now I can mark that off of my ever changing must have collection list. LOL

 A view of the dining room.... the big bouquet was for Savanah from her husband... a special delivery. Their one year anniversary was yesterday. Time is just going. We have to remember to see the beauty in the small every day things as this is what life is made of.
Blessing and Love to you dear readers.....
