Mother's Day & Spring Give Away

Hello blogging friends, I hope you had a wonderful mother's day.   We opted to go out Saturday night to avoid the crowds.  Little did I realize people were celebrating prom and graduation.  It was still busy.  My kids gave me a peaceful day (I asked for no fighting)  They made cards, placemats and flowers at school.  I enjoyed my crepe breakfast, which is starting to be a tradition.

Me and my big girl, she is almost as tall as me now.

my boy needs a haircut, he is liking it long

Getting a picture of all of us was quite the challenge!

I have decided to proceed with my blog name change.  Keep in mind that my content will stay the same.  I still like prims to some extent and for more than one reason cannot afford to change my home completely over to a new decorating style.  I just feel like getting back to my roots of country.  I love old things and antiques.  That will probably never change.  I'm not into all white or shabby.  While I love pastels they just don't speak to me the way a good dose of color does.  I find myself really loving the farmhouse look.  I also love the nod to Vintage kitchens especially dishes and tableclothes.  I do like white because it does such a great job of acting as a backdrop to my colorful accents.  I love all my prim friends and I would hate to lose any followers.  I do understand though. You can expect more recipes, antique finds and decorating on my new blog.

Here's my new name and Blog address.  I think the name fits and many of you agreed.
