Dyeing To Be PINK!

You all know how I feel about

But I also looove

I think almost
anything looks
adorable in

there are some things, that should
just be left alone...
(Am I overreacting)?

Do you agree

I will admit, they're cute.

Of course they're

They're Baby Chicks!

Eggs that have been injected with
dye, doesn't sound healthy.

They lose the color when they shed
their baby down, and get their
juvenile feathers, in about two weeks!

I wonder if later on, 
 these chicks could be where we
get our eggs from?
(a little more than food for thought)!

It just doesn't seem right,
How do you feel about this

Jojo a blogger friend of mine
is having 'Spring Fling Part Two'

With all the sadness in the world
right now, it's so easy to get overwhelmed

can mean so much. 

So reach out

With this in mind,
I've decided to join in
and Pay It Forward myself;
 I'm reaching out to YOU,
hoping you'd like to do the same!
The first five people who comment

 will receive a handmade gift from me.

Pay It Forward 2011.
Then.... send out a handmade gift
to the first 5 visitors who leave

This is such a sweet way to connect

by sharing things we create with our hearts.

"It's not the size of the gift that matters,
but the spiritof paying it forward."

Collecting and Decorating in Miniture, for Our Grandkiddos!

A few weeks ago I was visiting one of my
favorite thrift stores looking at toys
for my Grandkiddos, and I happen
to notice a large bag of what appeared
to be doll furniture! After a better
look, I realized it was all Fisher Price
and in really wonderful shape,
so I decided to get it...

I brought it home and arranged it all
over my coffee table, I really had
fun with it...and knew it was
going to be a HUGE hit with
my grandkiddos!

~all for $5.99~

Last weekend Lulu came over
for a sleep over, it was the first time
she'd seen it, and she couldn't keep
her hands off it...I had as much fun
watching her play with it, as she

That night when she was sleeping,
I decided to start checking Ebay & Craigs List
for a doll house!
I found several Fisher Price doll houses,
on Ebay, they were terribly expensive,
and some had horrid shipping prices
 tacked on too!

So I ran over to Craigs list, and found one
that also had some pieces of furniture too, for
only $35. which seemed like a bargin
compared to Ebay's bidding. It wasn't
terribly far away, so I thought I'd go
check it out. But I got busy, and when I
checked later,
it was

In the morning, Lulu and I went
to the thrift stores looking for a
 swing for her baby brother,
although we didn't find a swing,
we did manage to find a few more
pieces of doll house furniture
to add to our collection!

~all for $6.99~

...and I also found more of the Price Family!

~Gotta love the twin girls, Grandma's sister & a little brother~

On Monday I found another dollhouse
on Craigs list for $20,
and it was fairly close, so I
was going to arrange to meet, but after
work, I stopped by the
Goodie (Goodwill) and sitting
on the floor was a FABULOUS
Fisher Price doll house!!!


I couldn't get it into my
cart fast enough!

I looove a wonderful deal, and
I especially looove making my
Grandkiddos smile, so this
totally made my day!
