CLEANING, DECORATING AND FEELING STIFF!






Hi Ladies: Where did our week go? I have been busy getting a roofer and cleaning and decorating my home for February. If you stay in one place too long here, you will get a pink bow tried to your head and rhinestone jewelry will get hung you.

Today, through, I have been stiff and lazy. Must be a weather change again. They should just hire me on the weather station. I am a living weather woman. In the good news, bad new department, Noah is going to start pre-school next month, two days a week. I will still get to have him the same number of days. It just seems unreal that he will begin school. My little boy is growing up! Say a little prayer for ME! Hard to see your grandbabies grow up.

Don't forget, I have the give away in a few days. Noah and I are getting ready for the big day by having yogurt, his favorite, with lots of strawberries. It is hard work, but someone has to do it!

I am also working on a "Tea Cup Tuesday" with my friend Terri at http://artfulaffirmations.blogspot.com/. Terri is a sweet, talented woman and we are trying to figure out a way that we can all share our love of tea cups. What better way than "Tea Cup Tuesday"? We will probably start next month. We just have to figure out how to do it, because neither one of us is very computer savvy. It will be fun looking at everyone cups, don't you think?

Last but not least, I receive an award today from Bunny at http://bunnymissbrenner.blogspot.com/. If you do not know Bunny, you have go visit. This wonderful lady is bold and brave and everything I am not. I always tell her I want to grow up to be just like her. A dear lady, you just have to get to know. Thank you, Bunny! (The song is for you.)
Most important, thanks to Saras at http://loveleightreasures.blogspot.com/, who always places my things on my blog, because I do not know how! I am not sure how I got so lucky to have met and become friends with such wonderful ladies, I do know I am blessed to have you.

The pictures you see are of some of the changes that have been happening around my home. Thanks for the visit and the kind thoughts. Blessings, Martha

Dear Martha: Loved your post. Oh, I'm so happy to hear you are not computer savvy either. I'm trying HARD but have so much to learn. Love the idea of the teacups. You know how much I love them. I'm sure you saw my teacup post awhile back. Anyway, keep me posted! Also, Martha, I wanted to say THANK YOU for putting my blog on your sidebar. I am so grateful. You are so kind. Hope your day is wonderful, like YOU! Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

Our bodies let us know when it is time to slow down so take a break and rest. We are having dust today so I am happy to stay indoors crocheting. You always have such lovely collections to share with us. Good luck with Teacup Tuesday. I hope Noah enjoys preschool. Blessings, Tammy

Martha,if you live in Texas and we were friends we could not be junking friends. We loved the same things! I take that back, let me tell you what we do when I take friends with the same likes shopping. We share a meal and the coversation time while we get to our destination. Once there we split and we wish each other luck. It doesn't always work. Last Sunday I went shopping and my friend got to the place earlier. Let me tell you, she got a pile that I didn't even want to glance at. Later we met and we went into this one booth, she have been there and told me didn't find anything. Well, look and search and you should find, finding I did. Two mechanical toys, an elephant and a bunny, for 6.00 each. It wasn't a good feeling, since my friend was so sick of the fact she did not see them earlier, actually the owner told her that they have been there for weeks. Only conclusion, it was supposed to be my blessing. That settles it. We can share. I love the idea of the tea cup Tuesday. I will never run out of cups, so as soon as you stablish it let me know. Blessings, Marta. PD Check my PS post, I got some stuff you will like to look at.

Hi Martha,

To have a pink bow tied to your head, would be a lovely thing! I adore all your pink.
I really hope that Noah will enjoy preschool - they soon grow up don't they.

Happy weekend and I hope that you are less stiff, sweet friend.
Hugs

Congratulations on your award Martha, it is well suited to you! I'll help you anytime you need! I like the pink and the sparkles you are adding into your decor, it feels more like Spring. I bet Noah is going to love school, but he will still love being with his grandma too! Have a great weekend and I hope the weather cooperates with your aches and pains!

Laurie said...

Dear Martha,
Thank you so much for visiting me on my blog.
Your blog is just beautiful.
If you have a moment look at this post on my blog ~ http://rosecottage-laurie.blogspot.com/2009/12/christmas-day.html

The vintage cabinet that you found on the curb looks very similar to mine. I received mine for Christmas and I know my hubby paid a pretty penny for it and we think yours is older than mine.
What a great find and you have decorated it beautifully!
Blessings,
Laurie
