~Happy Birthday Michael~

Happy Birthday Michael…I can’t believe your 35 today, where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday they laid you on my stomach and you turned your head up to look at me, 1975 and you were my third one, and you looked just like me, I can’t tell you how much that thrilled me. You are also the picture of my dad even his build and mannerisms…I miss you both, my dad because he’s in heaven and YOU because your are in Annapolis, have fun in downtown Annapolis eating and walking around it has to be just beautiful in the spring. You have did so well with your life, put yourself thur college to become what you love…a history teacher…I’m so proud of you♥

Love you, MOM

PS. How old were you in this picture? 15?

100_2538 ~Ok, I’m teary eyed here so on to what makes us forget for a little while GW…which was really good to me today. I found these three rolling pins for .99 a piece, I couldn’t believe the price on them. All are very well used, now I think I have to put them in a bigger crock I have so many,LOL


When I first spotted this I thought it was made of wood but it’s a type of pottery but sure looks like wood from far away so I’ll display it for .99:) Just have to see where it will go!


I FINALLY found a light fixture for above the diningroom table and brand new I might add, they had four of them, it came with four globes but I won’t be using them:) Now I just have to spray paint it black and I think the wood part in Barn Red then stain in walnut…I’m open to any suggestions that you might have ladies and gents, what other colors (for the wood part) could I use? I have to get some candle sleeves and I saw those at Barbera’s Country Store last week so at least I know where to get them.


I went to a really cute baby shower Saturday for my friend’s daughter Lesley, the theme was Mother Nature.

The Place Setting, the favor was the birdnest you see at the top, so good with the candy eggs, I think it was some type of pretzel that made the nest.


Look at the cupcakes and they are sitting on burlap with pinecones and the tree too!


On the invitation it said not to wrap the gifts that they would be displayed so that Lesley could mingle with everyone and also because they went with the green theme, I thought this was cute.


This takes the place of a bassinet, it adjusts to the height of your bed so that after nursing you can just lay the baby in it:)


I gave her the white wicker basket and in green on the front is embrodired Baby Things and filled it with things that she was registered for, found the cutest little Ralph Lauren socks ( BTW she is having a boy) the basket I found at TJMax, so adorable! It was different as far as not wrapping the gifts but neat I thought!


Instead of games they had a Chinese auction all themed baskets that you could win if your ticket was drawn.100_2518

Well, that’s about it ladies and gents, I’m posting on my lap top which I got back today.YeYYYYYY! And a big hello to all the followers and the newbies too, I appreciate it so much that you all stop by♥

A beautiful day here in Pa. the birds were singing and you can see the buds starting on the trees, my hostas are up too!

I hope everyone had a wonderful St. Patricks Day…I have Irish in me my great, great grandparents on my mother’s side were from County Down, boy, what I wouldn’t give to have my mom’s corn beef and cabbage today:)

Have a wonderful evening wherever you are:)



  1. Happy Birthday to your son! Great GW finds, that light fixture will look awesome when you're done with it - please take pictures. A few sprouts of green are poking out around here too. Have a great weekend, Dawn

  2. My son is 37 !! Happy Birthday to yours

    NE OH

  3. Happy Birthday to Michael!!

    Great GW finds!! Ours has not had anything in a very long time, but I found a new thrift shop that has good prices.


  4. Happy Birthday to your handsome son! He was born the year I got married to Mr. Red Door!!

    What a great idea for a baby shower - I am going to remember that for the future!!

    Looking forward to seeing your chandelier all primed up!!

  5. Happy birthday to your son - I know you're proud of him!

    Great find with those rolling pins! When our Goodwill has them, they're always priced too high for me.

    Cute baby shower!

  6. Happy Birthday to your son!

    It looks like you found some good deals at GW!

  7. Happy Birthday to your dear son! You deserve to be a proud mama... you did well! *hugs*

    I am jealous of your rolling pins. I keep looking but the only ones I find people want a small fortune for. I will keep looking though. 100 mile yard sale is coming in a few months....

    The baby shower looked like it was fun. I have never seen one like that either but seems like a very unique idea!

    Hope your have a great day. Its already in the 60's here and the windows are open!


  8. Happy birthday to your son! And congrats on getting such a good deal on those rolling pins! Loved the party idea- the gifts looked so pretty! I am throwing a baby shower for my sister next week - I need to get more creative.

  9. Happy Birthday to Michael!

    99 cents for each for those rolling pins?! Goodness girl, that's a steal! I sure wish we had such great things at great prices around here! I hardly ever find anything under $1.00.

    What a neat baby shower! I have never heard of one like that. I love how they stuck with the theme all throughout.

    My hostas just now shot through the soil. I'm so excited to see them, I can't wait to see them all green!


Love to read each and everyone of your comments...thanks for taking the time to stop by for a visit... your always welcome♥
