. . . .

The holidays came and went and I have had quite the time keeping up with everything and before I knew it I was behind nearly a month on this ole blog. Faith and I battled a flu bug for three weeks. Three weeks I tell ya!!! My energy was zapped and the symptoms just lingered and lingered. Finally we are back healthy and happy and I am excited to share a few projects we have going as well as a fun find.

When it came time to take our Christmas tree down there seemed to be a few sad faces around the house so we decided to make a Valentine banner to cheer everyone up! These are so fun and easy and it is certainly a fun project to do with the kids which makes it even more worthwhile!

Next up we found these arched windows that I envisioned above our front door. We have a few archways in our home so I think these arched windows will work swimmingly!

Next up I found these old vintage plates and was drawn to the colors. I think it was the black that popped. These are sitting in my chippy old plate holder in my kitchen. I am so happy I found them!

I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays and are ready for the new year! Thanks for stopping by friends!

I was wondering about you. I have cancelled a lot of my blogs because they weren't interesting anymore. I thought maybe I unsubscribed to you, then said, Naw, I wouldn't do that. I love your energy and work ethic. Want to hear more about your work life, etc. Wish my parents lived on a farm! Happy New Year to you, Ann

Three weeks!! I was wondering if you were taking a blogging break or something, I know I am! Kinda burned out at the moment. The banner is awesome :)
