Hello sweet friends! Can you believe SPRING is almost here? Right outside my door step the weather was 72 degrees today and the trees are starting to blossom. LOOK and it’s PINK!!!:)Daddy decided it was the perfect weather to take Grant and Vivi for a little wagon pull around the neighborhood. Of course Mommy must take a few pics before the ride begins.

My super sweet husband surprised me earlier that morning with "Just Because" roses! This has NOT happened in a LONG time ladies. Not sure what I did to deserve this, but I wont complain. LOL!!!

Now I must share with you some amazingly sweet eye candy. Miss Vivian and I did a little personal swap and from the moment I saw her chickie easter box I just had to have one! Isnt this the cutest????

Omigosh! When I laid eyes on it, it’s just sweeter in person! Thank you Miss Vivian!!!!   

I also just made my FIRST of many purchases from Heather of Pretty Petals. Oh my goodness she always finds the most beautiful vintage lovelies. These hats she created are DIVINE!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my ultra feminine girlie hat.

Thank you Miss Heather!!!:)

My next little show and tell is of my recent purchases at Marshalls. I hope many of you sweet friends have a Marshalls near you. They always carry beautiful home and seasonal holiday decor at fabulous prices. I could NOT pass up this DARLING pink bicycle planter. Even tho’ it’s a platner I have several other ideas for it. I was even thinking of using it in Vivi’s bathroom to put rolled up hand towels in the baskets.:)

I also could not RESIST these sweet springy dresses for Miss Vivian. Now that she is a year older I can really start to dress her up. Last year this time we were still in onesies. Now the fun part of dressing up begins!

Many of you participated in mine and Cheryls Vintage Valentines swap. Well, being it was my first ever to host, of course I had to have a major OOPSY! EEEK! I totally forgot to assign someone to my BIG sis Jessi.:(Cheryl and I felt HORRIBLE, but it was truly all my fault and not Cheryl’s. Im the one who picked the partners. Anyhoo, I KNEW I had to make it up to Jessi. So,I put together a basket of Easter goodies to hopefully make up for my mistake. This is just a sneak peek of some of the things I created for her.

This is a fun and whimsy little creation I made for her "Easter Explosian" table.

Sorry again Miss Jessi. I hope this sweet package made up for it!   

I’ve been SPARKLED!!!!

Fromcatieanandvivonawhim_2

Miss Dolly of My Cherry Heart sparkled me! Oooh thank you sweet friend! I of course must pass this on to a few of my friends that add sparkle in my life and their blogs put a smile on my face. She is one of my dearest friends Miss Cheryl. It’s her Monday Yummies that I just "oooh and aaaah" over, and is full of MAJOR sparkle! Diane of Saturday Finds. I looove your uber sweet pocket posies. I want to own them ALL! You are sooo sweet and nice and you so deserve this award!!!

EEEEK! Sooo cute!

Hey sweet Jenn!!! I’m the first to comment again!!! Sooo jealous of the amazing lovely spring weather! Still in the 20’s here.. I really like your easter creations for Jessi so wonderful and springy! I love seeing all your amazing creations! Looks like the wagon ride was tons of fun!

Hi Jenn, beautiful roses! Lucky you! Tony has not brought me flowers in a long time.. he used to all the time! I have to remember to put a bug in his ear about this!!! Your children are so cute! Those really were the days when the kids were little and so easy to please! I used to have the best fun shopping for clothes for the girls! it wasnt as much fun for the boys, but these days, there are some really cute boy clothes.. I love to look at targets kids clothes! I dont even have any one to buy for, I just like to look! I imagine someday I’ll be blessed with a grandchild or two! (not in any hurry!!!)
glad you like your chickie box! Have a sweet Monday!
hugs!

Hi Jenn,
The kids look like they enjoyed themselves. I can’t wait for the flowers to start blooming up here in CT. Still a few more weeks! I love the dresses you found and I can agree on Marshalls – we have one right around the corner and a few in neighboring towns. Love the gumball machine! Is that M&Ms I spy? Great idea!

Hi, Jenn! I wanted to drop you a note to say hello and introduce myself … and your latest blog has given me the urge to do so, it is such a nice post and so pretty! My name is Jill and I am also a wife,mother,decorative artist, lover of all vintage pretties! I have been enjoying your blog for a couple months now. I am new to the blog world, kinda strange in the beginning -I feel like I am “spying” on others lives! I have signed up for my own blog and have not had the courage to start posting yet. I am excited to do so, it looks like there are soooo many women “out there” that share similar interest and form connections. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and let you know how enjoyable and encouraging all of your post have been to me! Thank you! Warm regards, Jill

Hi Jenn,
I always LOVE seeing your adorable creations! Thank you for sharing.
Miss Vivian will be a doll in those Spring frocks. My Claire is two years old and soooo fun to dress up! Hope you have a beautiful day!

love everything as always!! your little darlings are so cute! I am glad the weather has been nice there. It has been nice here too :-) xoxo Britt

You sneaky little sweetie! Thank you for the “Sparkle” award. I am honored OMG what a surprise. And I have passed it on to two other very special ladies. I couldn’t believe it when I visited your blog the picture of the tree, I was out taking a walk yesterday and Looking up at the plum trees that line our street PINK flowers everywhere and I thought wow how wonderful I need to get a picture, two great minds think alike LOL, you beat me to it. And the music you have playing it is one of my favorites, very very cool. Thanks again Sweetie.
Hugs, Diane
