Bunny Madness

My Spring mantle and decorations are pretty simple this year.  I laid out a bunch of different things  and let Kailyn pick out what she "yikes" as she says.   She's really into bunnies this year so that's what we used.  I think I'm on bunny overload and feeling the need to change things out but will TRY to hold out for a while, hope I can make it!  
  I wrote this post the beginning of May and never got around to posting it.  I've been watching Sarah Monday thru Friday since Kate started her new job.  She's now working for a group of oncologists and loving it!  Everyone there is nice and lots of fun to work with, even the Drs.  She also has a lot of perks, the best one is that if anyone in her family gets cancer, they will treat them for free even down to the insurance deductible, pretty amazing!  Hopefully that service won't be needed but wonderful to know it's there.  Sara and I are still adjusting it's been interesting, she's still pretty needy, having to be held a lot which means I get practically nothing done during the day.  It's getting better, she's taking better naps which helps and we are having fun!  She's 5 months old now and growing like crazy. She is the sweetest, happiest baby, always smiling, never fussy, only when she's letting you know she needs a nap or is hungry.   I really need to upload some recent pics off my camera, hopefully soon!  As you can see from the photos below, I kind of have a thing for carrots!  While I was living in Wisconsin, I started picking them up at craft and antique shows and without realizing it, I had one of my first collections.

 I got the carrot banner this year at Marshall's, couldn't resist!




This is probably my favorite bunny, got him of all places, Lowe's
I haven't showed you any pics of Sarah lately, so here's a few.
(These are when she was about  3 months old)


Kailyn loves her sissy Sarah!

Till next time......

King Arthur's Flour

One of my favorite places my sister took me when we went to Dartmouth to visit my niece, Alissa, was King Arthur's Flour.  We loved it so much, we went back last spring when we took our road trip thru New England.  I'd never heard of it but apparently it's quite famous.  They make all kinds of breads, muffins, pastries, etc, which you can actually watch being made in their bakery and then buy in the café area along with all kinds of different flavors of coffee.  Pure heaven!  It gets better, the other half of the large building is a shop where they sell everything kitchen!  There you can find anything from cookbooks, utensils, mixes to use in your cooking, linens, cookie cutters, pots and pans, you name it they've got it along with yummy things to sample. Enough talking, here are the photos!
( Because there's so much in some of the photos, I made
  them extra large so you could see everything)!

My sister, Sandy and me dressed to shop!

February Red ...2

I think of January and February as the "winter" months.  For some weird reason, I don't really think of December as winter,  just as the month of Christmas.  February is all about Valentines, hearts and flowers but since I'm not that kind of girl,  for me, February is all about the RED which is something I do love.  So......I'm going to share some of my favorite RED things. 

The red Mobile gas Pegasus 

Vintage red luggage

 Vintage red riding jackets (had to put this in again
this year for those of you who might not have seen it
last Feb, it's my favorite)

  Red tennis shoes
Red life preservers
Vintage red travel trailer
Amazing red plaid ball gown
Red skies
Vintage red scale
Classic red Porsche (my dream car)!

Red coffee cups,  (the bigger the better)!

Red tool boxes
Not to forget you Valentine lovers, here is a heart for you!
Till next time.....
This week I will be joining these fun parties:

Cape Cod

Last April, my sister and I took my dream trip to New England!  We met in Boston, her from CA and me from TN.  We spent the week driving up the coast and stopping where we wanted on our way to our goal of ending up in Bar Harbor Maine!  It was still a little cold and overcast, spring had not quite arrived and the "summer season" wouldn't start for another week and a half on May1st, but it was still beautiful! This post is of our visit to Cape Cod and some of the gorgeous houses and cottages we saw along with a beautiful cranberry bog.  More of our trip will come later!



Below our some of the TINY cottages for rent during the season at the very tip of Cape Cod.
They were adorable, they all were named after flowers and so small I don't know how you could fit a family in them but I guess people do!


 Hope you enjoyed your tour of some of the beautiful homes on Cape Cod!
Till next time.....
I'm going to give you another peek at little Sarah Kate who's a month old now!

This week I'll be joining these parties:
