Doing some stitching lately . . . Spring Farmhouse

You all know how much I love to cross stitch . . . well I found these awesome shadow boxes at Target. What I love most about them is the color, gray driftwood with a linen background with some brass thumbtacks.  I thought something cross stitch would look great in it.  I found a sweet pattern by Notforgotten Farm  called "Spring Farmhouse" by Lori Brechlin.  Really enjoyed stitching it,  loved the way it turned out   . . . here some pics to take a peek at :O)

"Boo Boo" needs your help . . .

Please help "Boo Boo"!

My cousin Elaine is reaching out on social media asking for help to raise enough money to fund surgery for her precious cat "Boo Boo".  I've attached a link if you have it in your heart to donate.  Boo Boo's  hind body is “moderately deformed” and he walks with a noticeable painful limp.  His right hind leg is longer than his left hind leg. This puts his body in an "S" shape, which is very painful.  He is given pain injections every 12 hours, but now the pain medication is taking a toll on his kidneys. Unfortunately, because his hind body is deformed, it has caused great pressure on his left leg and is now compromising the longevity of his life.  Boo Boo's leg needs to be amputated.

A Facebook page has been created for Boo Boo to learn more about his disability and to donate,  please visit his Facebook page at www.facebook.com/helpsavebooboo

These little creatures bring so much happiness to our lives . . . Blessings! :O)

Celebrating Mother's Day :O)

Mother's Day was wonderfully sweet  . . . my daughter took me out to breakfast early Sunday morning, just the two of us, so enjoyed it for sure.  Having that time to just talk and share things about life is "all good" always.  We found this wonderful cafe for breakfast, called "Paul's Place".  The food is good and the music they play is all oldies too, my favorite.  

Cassandra surprised me with a pocket book from Michael Kors and little See's candy too . . . feeling pretty spoiled!

Sandal time again . . .

Anyone that knows me . . . knows how much I like to wear sandals.  Especially when the weather starts to get warmer, those sandals of mine start coming out of the closet.  My sandals are starting to look a little warned out.  I went shopping yesterday with Cassandra and found these cuties . . .  I love it when they match my seatbelt bag perfectly :O)

Something New . . . Birdcage Bookends

I found some adorable birdcage bookends at Michaels the other day  . . . shopping there is always an adventure.  I have a few vintage books along with my recipe book from our church back in Chino and never really displayed them in a special way.  These birdcage bookends were perfect.  Thought I would share some pics from my kitchen counter, where they're displayed.  I found that cute little ceramic dog in a antique store up in Paradise, Ca with Rex while visiting his parents a couple of months ago.  As with anything cute I'm always drawn too :O)
