Good bye???

I am so confused now. I thought that Google reader wasn't going away and it would be all right to not have any other way to people are saying it is going away tonight at midnight. I guess if it goes away I will be sunk but I will still be here if you know where to come and visit. Maybe I will install blog lovin just in case...who knows!

Swap Package...

Oh my goodness I am posting two days in a row...don't faint my friends!

I am doing the happy dance because when I got home from work today there was a package on my doorstep waiting for me. Of course I grabbed it, got a knife and started opening it right away! I participated in Amy's (Bumble Bee Lane) Farmhouse Summer swap and my partner was Becky (Ginger Cream Hollow). I tell you what I was spoiled big time. Becky is so talented and I just love everything I got! Of course everything was wrapped really nicely but I couldn't wait to open it all so no picture of how it was all wrapped. It is pretty much a give in that I will never have a picture of the wrapped things because I am not too patient to open packages. LOL

Here is what I got...First off Becky made me this darling cat  and cute rooster pillow.

Then she also made me this beautiful wall hanging.
These cute box of strawberries...they look good enough to eat and they are only a nickle a piece.
And I got a great smelling tart called Grandma's kitchen, a bird house notepad and a tin birdhouse ornament.
See, I told you I was spoiled! Thank you so so much Becky! I admire your talent and feel blessed to have some of your work! Also thank you to Amy who always puts on these swaps, they always bring such good feelings to everyone!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Trip and Treasures

Hello my dear prim friends. Well some people have recently posted on their blogs and I am so happy. I know a lot of people have gone to Facebook but to me that is just not as personal and I still enjoy visiting with you all on your blogs!  I really miss all of you and so enjoy hearing about your lives. I know summer is a busy time so hopefully it will get better in the fall.

Last week my mom, dad, sister and I took my two nephews Ian and Ivan to Green Bay for a little trip. We went to an amusement park and the boys enjoyed some rides. It was really neat because the city owned it and it was part of the park system so you bought tickets for .25 cents a piece and most rides were 2 tickets. The roller coaster was the most expensive and that was only 4 tickets...they had a lot of fun.

Then we went to the Green Bay Packer Hall of Fame.

And then we went to Lake Michigan and the boys loved being in the cold water and on the beach.

It was 3 and a half days filled with a lot of fun and activity! It took this old lady a couple of days to rest up. My sister and I went to an antique/thrift store and I picked up a couple of this..this neat Americana trencher and this neat wire basket. I am working on some bowl fillers to put into the basket so I will share them when I get them done.

Well that is all I have for now. Have a great week everyone!

Building an Ark

Hello my dear blogging friends. Well I am making a post again, not away quite as long this time as last. There is just nothing to post. I am trying though. This spring has been just horrible weather wise. We have had rain rain and or clouds in all but 6 days in the last 34 days. It is so hard to get up and going when there is not any sun. The weather has been very chilly also mostly in the 60's and 50's.  It is funny because I just re read my last post and I was so sure that spring was here, maybe that week was all we get and now it is back to fall??? I sure hope not! Tomorrow the forecast is saying sunshine and 70...I am so hoping that is right. I will be out celebrating if it is!

I went and saw my nephew Isiah on Tuesday. I hadn't seen him in almost three weeks so I was missing him a lot...his momma got him to smile big and I got the picture, I am sharing it with all of you because I am a proud Auntie! Love the shirt he has on too. Mom goes back to work on July 3rd and we are trying to get Isiah to take a bottle but so far he just refuses it. Mom is very frustrated. I told her we would just keep trying. He certainly is a joy to all of our lives.

I had another special moment this last week. I came home from a long day of work and there was another package on my steps. It was from Tammy (Three Small Fry Primitives) I had joined her Pay It Forward and this is what I got.

 The cutest pillow with a Valentine theme and then a cute bunny pinkeep. I also got a little spring ornament but I have that on my spring tree already. Thank you so much Tammy! It was so sweet!

Well I guess that is about it for now. I will be back...who knows maybe sooner than later!
