Around my house . . .

Here's just a little peek at what's been going on around here . . . 

I hope someone has an Easter Party so I can share it all with you then!

Haven't made a single thing! I've been so busy with my Savannah "Meet and Greet" swap that I haven't had time to sneeze! But they are . . . off - entrusted to the mailman . . . to be seen again in the beautiful city of Savannah! I CAN'T WAIT! Oh my gosh we are going to have such fun!!! Catching up with old friends, making new friends, "seeing" old friends for the first time . . . shopping . . . EATING (oh yeah THAT'S what I'm talkin' about! and fortunately Jenn promised everything is calorie free!) and a full day at the Ford Plantation just sitting out on the lawn, under a beautiful white canopy, right on the river . . . creating. How awesome is that going to be? Sigh. Cannot wait . . . just cannot wait!

Anyhow - off to get thinking about my next project . . . oh and I have an Easter Swap coming up with Miss Rebecca from Our Back Porch. If you recall we swapped for Valentines Day too . . . very fun!

Have a good one everyone!

Hi Karen Sweetie...
Your cloches are just beautiful. I love the wire for sure. The petit under glass is so precious.

I love the foil looking rabbits most of all. How gorgeous they are. The look so elegant. The pink beads that you have swagged, such an element of surprise. I love them.

Have you recovered from this morning as of yet? I would have been terrified. Give me a tornado okay but no earthquake. You are a very brave gal.

Sounds like you have another trip in the works. I am so tickled for you. I can't wait to see what you create.

Have a beautiful St. Patty's Day sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Your Easter decor is so pretty and I know your house looks great...it always did.

Are you going to Savannah??? I just met up with Kat from the blog JustABeachKat this week at the Mission Inn. We met last year and it was fun to meet again this year.

Miss seeing you. We are off to Arizona this weekend to spread Ray's ashes and see some spring training Dodger baseball games.

Hi Karen, Your spring and Easter decoration looks very pretty! I especially love Mr. and Mrs. Bunny and the soup tureen!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Melissa Miller said...

How pretty Karen! I just adore your precious Easter cloches and chickie. Sweet.

When and if we move it will be in the Summer of 2011. That will have put us in this home for over five years by then. Belive me that is better than expected for the Marine Corps. Usually a move happens every three years. Sigh....:)

Have a good one. ~Melissa :)
