A Few Giveaways!

Had a great weekend! Saw a couple of good movies, My husband and I took our bicycles down by the beach and rode and watched all the crazy spring breakers partying in the channel. Yes, we live in Lake Havasu City, and we get our fair share of the spring break crowd. We usually stay away from the crowd during this time. But once in a while we venture down for the entertainment. And it is entertaining! Saw a cat fight while we were down there. Well, I'm talkin' girl fight really. Two girls - crazy! Didn't last long. But really it was a very relaxing fun weekend.

So now on to the giveaways. Sissies Shabby Cottage is having a beautiful giveaway. go here to enter http://sissieshabbycottage.blogspot.com/2010/03/finallymy-300th-post-giveaway.html.

I am trying to get over a cold like just about everyone else I know! Woke up Monday morning with a bit of a scratchy throat. Still felt fine otherwise. so I went to the gym and almost finished my workout when I started feeling worn out. should have stopped right then, but of course , I didn't! Ended up putting my back out. Sooooo, the scratchy throat turned into a cold. And between the cold and the back really screwed up my week!

It's my son's birthday Saturday! he is my youngest and he is turning 32!! Yikes! Doesn't seem possible. So, I really want to feel good this weekend so I can celebrate with them.

I Love Old Lace and Buttons

I made an impulse stop at one of the local thrift stores a couple of weeks ago (I've been trying to curb my thrift store appetite lately). So, this is what I found. Two of my very favorites. Old lace and old buttons! Yay! I got all this old lace for $3. And there is plenty of it all to actually do something with.
These old buttons, there was a small bag of them, were $1. These are just my favorites out tof the bag. I love these mink ones. Well, don't know if they are actually mink. but they look like some kind of real fur. Aren't they pretty!!

Then I got this complete tatted collar for $1!!! I love it so much! I really want to do something special with it. any ideas? I would love to hear any ideas. I have a bad habit of just hoarding things like this and never putting them to any use.
