Tiny Treasures

Hi there, girl hearts! These treasures aren't very tiny but I just had to use the title! ☺ I've been limiting my GW treasure hunting to small, inexpensive things. These cutie pie wall plaques were just 75 cents each. I think the fabric was $1.00 Here's a close up of one of the plaques. I'm not sure but I might put something else in the middle of each of these. I think my granddaughter Elizabeth might like them too so I might give them to her once we move out to Idaho.

It was so much fun going and getting my hair cut yesterday! I came home feeling quite chirked up! I even feel motivated to loose some weight this week. Tooooo much cookies and candy and noooot enough exercise! My pants just don't fit right. I sure do miss my swimming pool this time of year!
I started unpacking my Valentine's day craft supplies and decor. Now I just have to find my vintage Valentines! My poor paper supplies keep getting moved around so much that they are still a big mess! I want to scan my Valentines like I did with my Christmas cards. That way I can share them with you AND add them to my side bar.
I just have 2 more Christmas boxes to move down to the basement but guess what? My White tree is staying up in the Dinning room and it was Bobby's idea! ☺ I did take the decorations off, though. It just looks so sweet in my pastel dinning room.
Today we have company and tomorrow is my Dr. appointment. They are going to take pictures of my ugly legs for their before and after pics so I'll get to be a model yet! Ha-ha!
Have a great day, girlfriends! You're all special to me and to God!

Lisa said...

I think it is neat that you are leaving it up! Are you going to do Valentine theme on it? I too have to find HALF of my Valentine stuff. I got Christmas put away yesterday and have a stack in the living room that has to go!! I can NEVER get it all gathered at one time! hehe
Have a great day!!
Hugs, Lisa

It finally hit me. Valentine's day projects for the grands. Yes. I have all my tools and stash set up right here in my warm kitchen now, disguised behind some curtains, so I can get started. I liked those plaques. I do wish you luck with your upcoming dealing with the VV. I thought I was going to need shoulder surgery, but PT has again gotten me through. Blessings
