Yesterday morning my little tulip plant was longingly looking out the window, wishing it could go outside.
This was yesterday, April 28th.

This was this morning, April 29th.........yes, 1+ inches of snow. However, it won't last long as we are suppose to have warmer weather today. I am happy we do not have tornadoes here. Our prayers and thoughts go out to those whose lives have been ruined by unbelievable weather.

Does anyone else have this problem with packaging? You can hardly get inside to the product you purchased! Look how many pieces off packaging I had to go through to get my "very small" ink cartridge! Recently I bought a flat iron for my hair and after I cut through the tough plastic I still couldn't get to the flat iron.....I almost had to mutilate the thing.....GOOD GRIEF!

This was the table setting for my good friend Sherie's birthday party. We ate scones with REAL clotted cream and jam, deviled eggs, ham and fruit.
I used my pretty plates.
We had party favor bags fill with all kinds of goodies.
I invited her sister, sister-in-law, mom, and four nieces. We sat around after lunch and talked about all favorite memories with Sherie like; favorite Halloween party, favorite trip, favorite reading time, favorite Christmas memory, favorite gardening time.....such a fun day! Sherie and I have been friends since 8th grade. She is my dear, dear friend. Happy Birthday friend!

Remember last year when I made my grandson a birthday quilt when he turned 4?Well, this year I have another one that turns 4 and I will have one next year!

This one has monsters from a coloring book he likes to color in.
And trucks!
And more trucks! Four years old is my very favorite age for children. They love you, they love Jesus, they are happy, they are potty-trained, they can tell you where it hurts....I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED 4's!!! The quilt is off to the quilters,I will post it when it is finished.

I remember having a new Easter dress all the time I was young. I never had a store bought dress until I was married. Here is one of three. So fun to make! Also check out Mary's fat quarter dress, what a great idea!
