Easter weekend is always a favorite in our house as I sure it is in yours. We kicked off the weekend with Easter egg hunt (moved indoors due to the weather) put on by my darling sister Tiffani.
Yes my boys to have rather large Easter baskets. That just means more stuff from the Easter bunny, right?
Another item, Bijou Market is this weekend
We are so excited about this one. We have local artists painting portraits starting at $10. Check our website for artist info and times. And of course we have the best of everything handmade and vintage to bring you too. Feel free to copy and paste this flier, and don't forget to join our little Facebook family. See you this weekend!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We took full advantage of the warm weather, by getting a head start on some landscaping, having a bonfire to toast mallow's and even taking a walk. Even as busy we were outside, I still found some time to add to my mural of mirrors.
My smaller sunburst mirror has looked so lonely for the past two years, so I have been on the lookout for a while. Not wanting to pay the rather large price (I haven't found one for less than $150) I finally gave in and joined the bandwagon of makers of sunburst mirrors out of shims.
Just like every Monday it seems, I have a pile of things I need to do. Laundry I didn't get to over the weekend, yet another clean through of the house and thanks to a wonderful weekend of thrifting (why doesn't the spell check dictionary recognize the word thrifting as an actual word, I need to have a talk with Webster) with my Sister/Mother in law, I now have a heap items to add to my closet. Only a problem in the sense that I am in serious need of a closet re haul. I have almost no space left and I have made a promise to myself to absolutely not expand into Chads 1/3 of the closet. To he honest though I have already taken half of August's closet, the hall closet, under the bed and several bins in the garage. I have searched for ways to make the most of the space but everything I have found seems to only take away space.
Our bedroom is the last room in the house to receive any decorating attention from yours truly. Even our bathrooms look better than this room. It is not that I don't want to have a change I am just having an EXTREMELY hard time committing to anything. The biggest thing holding me back is my current bed and dresser combo. I don't hate them, but I certainly don't love them or even like them...tolerate is a good word. I think I have made a breakthrough out of the rut I am currently in though with this bedding.
Everyone has at least one pair of colored jeans that just don't make it out of the closet often enough. I have this pair of grey denim from F21 that I never wear, and I thought polka dots would be a refreshing change.
Rashelle's Crazy Lady Cookie Recipe.
Preheat oven to 375.
1cup softened butter 2 eggs
1 cup white sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup brown sugar 2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder 2 cups rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2 cups coconut flakes
1 cup nuts (I use pecans) 1 cup chocolate chips (I use semi- sweet)
In a mixing bowl beat softened butter for 30 secs until it is light and fluffy. Then add sugars, baking soda and powder. When combined add egg and vanilla. Add flour, rolled oats, coconut, nuts, and chocolate chips. Drop onto cookie sheet and bake for 9 min. Transfer to rack and let cool.
That is it. Try it out and see if you like them. Oh and let me know how they turned out.
I make lists, lots and lots of lists. I don't know how some people can get through life without them. Maybe some people are blessed, but for me if I don't write it down with my own hand, my brain will NOT remember it.
I have tried so many versions in the past with high hopes, only to be disappointed. Usually from lack of room to write, but this notepad gives me plenty of space, and I am going to take it one step further to make this the notepad of my dreams by adding a big, fat magnet on the back so that my clutter will disappear from my counter and be neatly stored hanging from my fridge.
Modern Palm has some great finds. Take a look and if you spend $150 you get free shipping. Bonus, I am always a sucker for free shipping.
