Quickie #1: I am very excited about this one. A few weeks ago I was asked if I would like to receive and review a copy of the book “The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder” by Rebecca Wells. She is the author of one of my most favorite books of all time, “The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood”. I loved every word of that book. The movie was good but the book was unforgettably great. I so hope and expect to love this book as well. There is something special about the way Rebecca Wells puts sentences together. My book arrived in the mail today and I can’t wait to get started reading. My official review is scheduled to post on Tuesday, April 20, 2010. Stay tuned!
Quickie #2: I found these little birds at a second hand shop last week for only $1.25 each! And I added them to my bird cage/nest Easter display. I thought that was a remarkable deal until I saw these sweet little birds on some one else’s blog and they stated they found them at the Dollar Store. I guess I over paid by a 25 cents a piece. That’s okay, I’ll get over it! :)
Quickie #3: I received so many kind words and compliments on my “Hello” (in several foreign language) Subway Art Projects. Thank you! I mentioned in my post that I would like to make a larger piece with all of the street addresses that we have lived at over the years. Well, I am here to announce that it is finished and I am absolutely thrilled with it and…..I cannot show it to you! BECAUSE, I feel like it would not be a safe or wise thing to do. Someone out there could use that information for evil. And I don’t need any evil directed my way! That is just more personal information than I want to reveal and once posted to the internet it will live on forever. But take my word for it….it is a fun and such a personal project. I painted a large canvas with 3 coats of black acrylic paint and then used my stencils and some vanilla colored paint to add all of the streets and house numbers of all our former residences. We moved a lot over the years. I have it hanging in our office and I am so glad that I made it. Give it a try if you want something unique and personal.
Quickie #4: The 10th grade son has his driver’s license. Oh my…….I am realizing that worrying about your children really never goes away. It just morphs into other things to worry about. He is thrilled and feeling very independent. Next project, steering him towards summer employment!
Quickie #5: The First Year College Student is coming home tonight for the Easter Holiday. So happy to have a full house for weekend. And the weatherman is predicting 80 plus degrees for the next 4 days!! Unbelievable!
Wishing you all a very HAPPY EASTER!!
