I Love Dollar Tree

Who besides me loves $ Tree?
There are always some unexpected great deals to be found.  
This is what I found on one of my recent trips.
Storage cubes in green & white.
They're perfect for storing the grand kids' books & toys in my library corner.
I also found some great food items.
Two sizes of Hormel Pepperoni.
10 stand 'n stuff taco shells.
Lasagna (don't know why the package says Lasagne) that doesn't need to be boiled.  What a cool idea!

I also bought some greeting cards.  Did you know that $ Tree has cards 2 for a dollar & some for one dollar?  

Our grand kids love buying toys at $ Tree. 
What do you buy when you shop $ Tree.?

Since this is Memorial Day weekend, I chose a patriotic theme for my note cards.
All of these photos are from posts in 2013.
Welcome to our patriotic home.

Cock A Doodle Doo

A few weeks ago my 5 year old grandson asked me when I was going to decorate for Rooster Days.
Rooster Days is an annual festival that has been celebrated for 83 years in the town where my son's family lives.  I was surprised that he asked me this question.  He knows that I decorate for all the seasons & holidays so I guess he thought I would be decorating for Rooster Days.  Of course!  Why not?  
I found a pic of the logo for the festival on line, printed it & framed it in a garage sale frame I recently found.
This flea market rooster that I found in Branson several years ago was a perfect fit with the framed pic.
I added some raffia for a farm feel.
We made a rooster pendant banner with a rooster image I found on Google.
We also made a pendant banner for them to use at their house.

My son & daughter in law took the kids to the Rooster Days festival on Friday night & the parade Saturday.  They had a great time. 

The next mantel project will be decorating for Memorial Day weekend.  Of course I'll ask Ethan & Emma to help me deocrate the house.  I think we've started a tradition.  So much fun!

Happy Mother's Day
I miss my Mother every day & especially on Mother's Day.
This verse fits my Mother to a T.  

She opens her mouth with wisdom,
 and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
 She looks well to the ways of her household
 and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Proverbs 31:26-27

She was always busy providing for us in every way.  Cooking, cleaning, sewing & gardening.  She always took time to help us, nurture us, comfort us & teach us about the Lord. 
 She truly was a Proverbs 31 woman. 

Wishing you a wonderful Mother's Day . . .

Sunday Outing

We had fun making memories with our grandson, Ethan, Sunday afternoon.
Little, Emma, was sick & couldn't go with us.  We sure missed her.  
We started out with ice cream.
Next, when I asked him what he had for lunch, he said, "Nothing,"  I knew that couldn't be true, but I asked if he would like a hamburger.  His eyes lit up & he said "Yes!"
Papaw ordered him a kids burger, fries & chocolate shake.
We took this pic while we were waiting on the burger.
He wasted no time gobbling up every bit of his meal.
Yummy fry dipped in ketchup .
Enjoying his chocolate shake.

Our next stop was $ Tree.
Ethan loves to shop.  If we had let him, he would have filled our basket to the top.  He chose 2 action figures & a doll for little sis.  He said he wanted to buy something for her to make her feel better.

I loved our Sunday outing of making memories.  Next time Emma will join us.

Faith is the confidence that what we hope
 for will actually happen;
 it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.
