Some of my favorite things from around my house

This is our lake only a few weeks ago. It has just begun to thaw out this week. On my way to work yesterday, I spotted 2 swans standing on the ice trying to figure out what happened to the water. Wish I'd had my camera with me so I could've taken their picture.

I am so happy, I just got a great deal on some pink 24% crystal chandelier balls!!! They are absolutely gorgeous.

I also found two new gorgeous chandeliers.

Aren't they beautiful. They are both very shabby and chic!!

Yay!! What a great day

Making Cute Valentines

Aren't these the cutest Valentines? I thought they were going to be hard to make, but they are really quite easy.
All they are is a box of conversation hearts wrapped in scrapbook paper (we are using pink for the girls in my son's class and blue for the boys). Then you use yarn and Hershey's kisses for the headphones and the template for the front of the ipod is downloadable here from Family Fun magazine online.

While I was at the craft store picking out the scrapbook paper for the Valentines I couldn't resist this pretty pink toile paper!! I haven't decided what I am going to use it for yet...something pretty for Valentine's Day.
