St. Patricks Day Fun!

 Last night, we went to my sister Wendy's for 
St. Patrick's Day party. What a riot!
We all had to wear something Irish,
Here is Mom at the photo booth
with her stylish headband!
 All of us gathered for a group picture.
 Ken and I had a riot!
He found an old sweatshirt, re-vamped it, and
claimed he stole it from a Leprechaun.
 All us sisters took a turn with a photo!
 Me with my niece, more like my daughter Becky.
 nephew Jason
 Robyn and Wendy in the photo booth.
Wendy and Dan we can't wait til your next party!

Stair Makeover!

My niece Robyn and her husband bought our old farm house when we had our home built next door.  This  staircase was enclosed with a door going upstairs. They took down the wall, to show the banister and enlarge the dining room.  That left a gaping hole under the stairs, perfect for storage.  Robyn told Jay how she wanted the hole enclosed, and he built this fantastic shelving unit complete with a perfect size door for access to the space. Robyn had him put a glass doorknob that was on one of the homes original doors to open it. It turned out beautiful!  The original pinewood floors were uncovered, and refinished. Not bad for a home well over 100 years old!

Pampered, or Spoiled!?

Mitzi, thinking Ken sat his milk down just for her.
 Mitzi is such a unique cat.  She is the queen of the house, being the only female animal.  She also has the attitude. Mitzi feels she is entitled to do whatever she pleases, whenever she pleases.  Ken and I get a kick out of her antics, calm, gentle and loving one second, and a super brat cat the next.
 For some reason she will not drink out of the community water bowl.  When Mitzi is thirsty,
she jumps in the sink, then sits there and cries til I come to turn on the water.
That's our spoiled girl.

Estate Sale Find

Yesterday, Ken and I decided it was time to get out of the house and leave the cabin fever behind. 
 We went to an estate sale, but being the last day we had no hopes of finding anything. But lo and behold, this beautiful vintage vase was sitting there just waiting for me. Everything was 75% off, so along with several other great finds, which I'll show later, we spent very little! And this vase was the crowning jewel for me.  What though, could be more gorgeous than my vase?
A gorgeous vase filled with gorgeous flowers!  
And with the help of my favorite florist, it is now a beautiful centerpiece!
