Well, on this fine Friday Afternoon... Just wanted to share two amazing sites I have found... At our house we don't have cable or a 'dish' so the channels we watch are pretty limited.. We recently upgraded to a digital T.V and antenna! On Thursday nights here..on PBS..there are some wonderful cooking shows! ..Of course after CSI.. I have become addicted to JoanneWeir and America's Test Kitchen . On Joanne's show, she has a one on one cooking class with a lucky individual and they create some amazing mouth watering dishes. America's Test Kitchen takes recipes and breaks them down and figures out a better more tasty way to prepare it...they also show what products taste the best and work the best in the kitchen..last night it was fillet mignon and mixed drink shakers!

I've been blessed! Thank you so much Amy of razzpizazzboutique visited my little blog this weekend and really touched my heart! Thank you....
This is a neat 'tag' that gets you to focus on others instead of yourself...This is how Amy explained it on her blog..I'll let her tell you. "The idea…it’s a game of tag with a difference, rather than looking inwardly, we look outside ourselves and bless, praise and pray for 3 blog friends. By participating in this endeavour we not only make the recipient of the blessing feel valued and appreciated, but we are having some fun too. We’re going to see how far the bloggin’ blessings can travel around the world and how many people can be blessed! Recipients of a bloggin’ blessing may upload the above image to their sidebar if they choose to. If you receive a bloggin’ blessin’ please leave a comment on this thread here so that we can rejoice in just how many blessings have been sent around the world."
I have had some other tags too that I will share later from Amanda and Nikki
Now to the fun part...These wonderful ladies poped into my head as I was posting this, I thank you for reaching out to me....I give this candle to
Kara from InnocentCharmsChat
Lovelyn from Momentswithlove
Rhonda from FarmHouse Style
Esther from EstherSunday
Amanda from Jacaranda Cottage
I know that's more than 3...I will still pray for you.
Happy Monday Everyone!

Yes! Oh yes, life is coming back to all parts! It has been a long hard winter for so many people... here in the WI included. I seriously can't remember when it was 60f in sooo long! Well, it was 62f today!! Yay!!
It was glorious...the sun was shinning and not a hint of snow or rain in the air. I was actually awakened by birds outside my window!! Yes, gosh that sounds corny...but yes.. at the crack of dawn they were just 'a chirpin' away... I honestly forgot what that sounded like!! The one day a week I can sleep in and I feel like I was in a bad movie or something...AKKK! Please forgive but I just had to shoo my morning visitors away for a bit...
After all the theatrics of the wee morning hours.. it was okay..strangely. I have been dealing with extreme pain for quite some time now. If it isn't horrific headaches its been debilitating joint pain, like the whole world is standing on you pain.. I am okay.. NO PAIN today!!! Seriously...
Thanks to my wonderful DH..I am on a new vitamin regime as well as an exercise regime.. Hmmm..could it be working? I don't know, but I will keep you posted!
With the glorious sunshine calling us.. I just had to play "hooky" from stuff..I packed #2  up and we went out..#1 was in a choral competition all day and come to find out he placed first!! These wonderful photos are of actual life coming back after this horrific Winter.
Our whole landscape looks like a war zone..and these wee 'Johnny Jump Ups' are signaling the coming of Spring.
It's just such a relief.. A breath of Life come back... thank you Lord!.....
These are of Tulips... peeking out.. I just get so excited! I see God's signs of rebirth like this and I know it's going to be okay...
Happy Saturday Everyone.. hugs and happy Spring...

Here are two collages I made I will be putting in the store. Both of these collages are 3x5 inch.
Fun puppies on this one
"Winkin, Blinkin and Nod" are what I call them.
This collage is trimmed with black checked ribbon...I hand colored the outfits and of course! German glass glitter adorns the top..
