I made Christmas Ornaments. I had it all planned out, had my patterns and was ready to go. OOOOPS......a couple of the patterns didn't work out so had to improvise. Do you remember making paper chains to hang on the Christmas tree? I do, I crocheted mine. They will be hanging on my tree this year. Along with my other ornaments I made. Here's a run down...

Paper Chain
Owl Ornaments-3
Tree Ornaments-3
Light Ornaments-3
Mitten Ornaments-3
Package Ornaments-3
Decoration Oranments-3
Ball Ornaments-3

My biggest project right now is my Granny Got Color Blanket. I'll be working on that for the month of April. I have 4 rows done and there are 9 rows all together.

So what are you working on??

All the flowers and trees are putting on a show here. So thought I'd share a few with you.

My hubby's version of a nature preserve.

Bella has a fascination for shoes. She puts her mommy's shoes on and starts walking. She's getting pretty good at it.

The door on the east side of the barn. Love all the texture.

All the little red fuzzy things are falling off the maple trees onto the deck. I've got to sweep everyday.

Spring has sprung around here. The Grape Hyacinths are blooming.

Some more spring showings. The peach tree in full bloom.

My hubby fixes bicycles and sells them. These are his spare parts.

Bella has discovered shoes. Now she wants to wear them. But they aren't her shoes she's discovered, it's everyone else shoes. She took a little walk in her mommy's shoes all by herself. It was slow going but she made it where she was going.

What's bubby doing?

Daddy went to the bathroom, I'll follow him.

I'm almost there!

We have been having some wonderful spring weather. High's in the 70's and a couple days in the 80's. Everyone has been outside.

Bella walking in her mommy's shoes, with a little help from mom.

A flock of Crane's flew over. They make lots of noise.

Beautiful blue sky with a plane flying by.

A side view of our barn. It needs some paint but that's not going to happen anytime soon.

The entry way to our house and the "critters" that guard it. Some of them I have had for 30+ years.

This is a grouping on the stairway. When we first bought the house the entryway reminded me of a dungeon. It's was dark and dreary. But paint and some touches of home made it all better.

My hubby and son sitting in the sun, enjoying the nice weather. Even Bubber, the dog, liked sitting in the sun.

I totally almost forgot to post my Scavenger Hunt pictures today. Want to know how this works? Head over to Ashley's place, Ramblings and Photos to see all the pictures everyone is sharing for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Vintage - my mother's rolling pin. She owned this rolling pin and used it my whole childhood. When she passed away I got it. I use it to roll out dumplings for Chicken and Dumplings.

Word or Quote - a sign advertising breakfast.

Nature's Own - some moss growing in our yard. Isn't it pretty!

People - my hubby and son enjoying the spring weather.

Photographer's Choice - beautiful blue sky, fluffy white clouds and a jet trail.

I've decided to make Christmas Ornaments. I picked out my patterns (10 of them) and if I did my math right, I make 3 of each and that way I'll have 30 at the end of March. I've been busy. I have a tin that I'm keeping my ornaments in, so the twins won't find them.
The tin is getting full, I'll have to find something else to stash them in. Here's a peck at them out of the box.
Aren't they pretty! They will of course look better on the Christmas Tree. Here's a close up so you can see them better.
Don't forget to hop over to Heather's place to check out what everyone else is working on.

The spice Lazy Susan, it's full of spices for healthy cooking.

My favorite drink, a fountain coke from our local convenience store.

Luke playing ball with grandpa.

Me crocheting and watching t.v on my computer. This is my relaxation time.

The shadow of the trash can, which is sitting on my file cabinet. Why you might ask is the trash can there? Because the twins like to dump the whole thing out.

Found this little flower blooming. The first sign of spring around here.

Bella's M i c k e y M o u s e smile. The twins love to watch The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Disney. She gets this silly smile on her face.

Water - I was trying to catch a drip, but it didn't work, so all I got was water running.

Light - I get great light through my kitchen window.

Chocolate - nothing like hot chocolate in the winter, homemade kind.

Animal - this is Tigger, he plays music and the twins can bounce all they want.

Crowded - the crib isn't used for the twins anymore, but the toys have accumulated in there. It's getting crowded.

What to look for next week:

1. Vintage
2. Word or Quote
3. Nature's Own
4. People
5. Photographer's Choice
