LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Welcome Spring !!

Wow, it has been a while since my last post. I was actually feeling Good and was so busy getting out of the house, looking for new treasures and working on new items. It is Good to hear Good news for a change huh ? :) I found these sweet vintage Chick and Bunny decorations a few months ago and listed them on my Etsy. They didn't stay there very long :) Aren't they sweet ?
I also made a few Cookie banners, and they too were sold the same hour that I listed them. I will be making more and would like to personalize them. How sweet would they be in a little girls room with her name on them ???


I also added a few Chick boxes and am working on more as these sold as well. I just LOVE these !! I have a bunch more items I am trying to finish up and am hoping I can get it all done before Easter. :) This is absolutely, Hands down my favorite Holiday to create for, as I have mentioned before. I wish there were 40 hours in a day :)

Speaking of Chicks, I found a few sets of these. Are they cute or what ? They sold pretty fast too.
And my Haul from last weekend thrifting. :) We found lots of pretties , that I will be adding to the shop. Can you believe I found Three glove boxes in one day ?? Gosh, I NEVER find those. And the awesome Vintage Wedding topper.


I love that tray. I have painted several of them, in the exact style, and swore that the next tray I found in this pattern I would paint for ME. :) Love it !! And the basket is also for me. Just loved the sweet shape of it.

Love these sweet bowls. I will be adding a few roses to them as well.

A sweet Violets hand painted dish. Love this !!

A few baby pink roses on vintage teacups and these lovely birdies. They are so cute with their beaded tails and ribbon wings. Can't wait to add these to something. :)

These sweet ladies I just added to my shop. Aren't they sweet ? The one in the back looks SO 40's with her hair do. They are wonderful, clean and look like brand new, although they are at least 50 years old.
And for ME. My Nursery is Growing, hee hee !! :) I have shown the larger and medium one before, but look at their new Baby Sister :) Mama needs to get busy and make them Bonnets and dresses as they are Naked, Poor dears !! :)

Well, That is my Happy Post for today :) I had my Dr. appt with my Rheumatoid Dr. last week. He has ordered a full body MRI. He too thinks we are MAYBE looking at MS. I also will be seeing a Neurologist soon. He is the Next phase. And , Good News, My Son just moved back in ( today ). Yippeee !!! He is decided to go to college and this seemed the best for him so that he could concentrate on his studies and not have to stress over paying bills. He will still work FT as he has a great job at Wal-Mart as a manager, so he will be pretty busy. I am just absolutely Loving the time I will be getting with my son. I really missed him when he moved out. He was always so busy, and parents are at the bottom of the totem pole at this age (24) so this is wonderful :) :) :)

Hope you are having a Great week and that spring is coming to your area. :)

Many Hugs,

Rhea :)

Oh, I love all the little chickies! So sweet! And the oh so pretty St. Patty's Dolls! I've never seen any dressed for St. Pat's day before! Just lovely! I'm sorry to hear that you're having health problems, I hope that they figure out what's wrong so you can start treatment and hopefully get to feeling better! Sometimes it's harder not knowing exactly what the problem is, you're kind of stuck in limbo ...

take care, and have a lovely weekend! enjoy your time with your precious son!

Margie :)
