Busy, busy week here in the ol' homestead and lots to share with you. As many of you know, I have had my hubby in the hospital since January and so have had to do daily hospital runs. I have been watching this tree from complete dormancy to glorious flowering. Look at the view out this window, not to bad to watch now! Just had to share this, it's so beautiful.
This past weekend, my youngest grandaughter made her First Communion. I was able to get a day pass for my hubs to come with us so I was pretty busy during the celebration but did manage to get this photo. My grandaughter is the first girl on the right with her back to us. (There is a reason I am not the family photographer! lol) She looked like an angel and fairy princess all rolled up into one. This is the infamous Bridget who has been known to come out with some pretty funny observations on life.
And then on Monday, for some unknown reason, I decided it would be a great idea to redo my kitchen. I started ripping things apart before I thought to take some before pictures. I took a photo of the first cupboard with it's brand new sparkly antique linen interior! Looks brighter already. The cabinets and woodwork are the bear of a job in this room. The walls will be a piece of cake! I'm still undecided whether to go with a golden yellow or a sagey green or a robin eggy blue. Please weigh in with opinions, I need some help here!!! (Great way to redecorate, color by vote, lol)
On the business side of things this week, there is the Mother's Day Shop Hop at Make Mine Pink beginning April 25th. Make sure to go to http://www.makeminepink.com/ to sign up and get registered so you are all set to find those shopping bags the boutique owners have hidden on our websites. Lots of great prizes, as usual, and no purchase necessary - but it is a great way to find your Mother's Day gifts while having fun and relaxing at home.
This week's Make Mine Pink Friday theme is Celebrating Mom. Are you seeing the trend here? Come and shop the new products for Mother's Day. I have a new gift item that will debut on Friday( http://www.patriciarose-apotpourri.com/ ) and many of the other participating boutiques have special gift items as well.
So back to my painting, will see you next week. Hope I have after pictures by then. I don't know how long my sanity will hold with this mess!
