God is probably still working his magic in the ground. Things are starting to wake up, grow a little bit and before we know it, peak their heads out for the world to see.
So I guess for now, I'll gaze at the green pictures and wait for Spring to arrive.
But I do wish it would hurry up!

We started our day at 9:00am and headed to a city about 1 1/2 hours away from here. You may say "why so far?". Well, they have some of the best scrapbook stores. The bigger city closest to us only have Michael's and Hobby Lobby. And all though the both of us love those stores, this other city has some very unique family owned stores with sooooooo many goodies. We just pray they can stay in business since others we like to visit have crumbled with this crummy economy.
We hit our first store and took our sweet time shopping, gasping at the things we would see. Many times throughout the day I would find something I loved, put it in my hands and minutes later when I circled back around the store to meet my girlfriend I would show her my treasure, to find out she picked up the exact same thing. We both have great taste. :)

After the scrapbook store we found a bead store that was very neat. We did good, didn't purchase a thing. I can't image starting another hobby, but it did look like fun. From there we hit scrapbook store #2, my favorite. I'm not really sure how long we were there, but I know it was well over an hour. These things take time you know! If you don't browse slowly, you might miss something awesome.
This is the store I found some stamps I have only seen on-line. They are Amuse Rubber Stamps and I just love them. I have pondered over them for months, wishing I owned some. We'll, I finally found a store that stocked them and it was very hard to not sell off my car to buy every one of them. I came away with only three, and all three were on sale so I feel pretty good about myself.
From there we grabbed lunch, found a neat fabric store and had to stop in to buy something for my sissy. My girlfriend and I decided that fabric is so much like paper, just on a much smaller (and cheaper) scale. Well, cheaper if you only buy one piece, which we never do. We picked out some fat quarters for my sissy, that she did love.
Spring Imaginisce rubber stamps that are just so cute, and only $1.00 each!
It was off to dinner back home at a local Mexican Restaurant and we were both tired and brain dead. We still had things to talk about, even though we were about too tired to eat. I took my friend home with all of her goodies and I came home to crash. It was such a fun day of fellowship and shopping on this holiday weekend.
My son is home from his Dad's and we are having homemade pizza and watching a movie. Time to spend time with my other Valentine date. He is the best "little man" a Mom could want. Hope you had a great Valentine's Day weekend with whomever you shared it with.
Tulips from my son...my favorite flower. A perfect Valentine's Day present.
Roses from my Mom and Dad. Another perfect present.

These next two pictures may look a little familiar if you remember the earlier post about my grandma's birthday party. These pictures are taken at another party for Grandma where we are all in the famous beauty parlor. Well, remember what I said about people playing around on the equipment instead of watching Grandma open her presents??????
Look who is the big kid now. I love you Uncle, and I'll miss you dearly.

I like my pink, glitter, Easter home filled with green grass, flowers and Easter eggs. I'll tuck it away until closer to Easter Sunday. I can't forget or neglect Valentine's Day. Maybe I should make a love shack? :)
Time to go....must play some more. My home is quite, surreal, music playing, candles burning...oh I just LOVE it!!
Here is someone else that loved the bright sunlight.

Some cute vintage cards, ribbon, lace, scraps of paper and tags
Very cute frilly tissue paper ribbon. I can envision a snowman's collar with this stuff. A little bit of rainbow ribbon and some Scrabble pieces.
I'm not sure what I will do with all of it, but over time I can pretty much guarantee it will be used on fun crafts. And for starters, it will start tomorrow! The weekend is here, and I plan on enjoying it. I hope you do too!
