New Display, A Pretty Gift Box, and Beautiful Outdoors

What I'm working' on.
New display at the store.
White, with a little bit of blue.
Nests to come with little blue eggs.

White Bread.
My sweet fella is spending more time in the kitchen lately.

He is making loaves of bread,
Really good bread,
a little too often! =)

Penny Pinchin' is using an old check book box as a gift box.
Cover with music paper, black ribbon, a doily, and a ribbon rose.

I'm using it for the tea bag rose bouquet I made.
A gift for a friend.

Two pictures of my brother's beautiful yard.

The kids hanging out at Grandma's.

Remy wanted to know what the bunny was doing.
"Oh", I said. "Harold is getting ready to shovel out some weeds".
He thought Harold was a pretty funny name for a bunny.
He's right.
But I told him I would let a bunny with any name
hang out if he was going to dig up weeds for me. =)

Hope you all enjoyed your visit here.
Now go on over and check out these wonderful blogs
full of great ideas to share.

thanks to our wonderful hostesses too.

Good Morning Barbara Jean.
I love your blog today, of course I love it everyday!
That's a great idea using an old checkbook box as a pretty presentation box...looks lovely.
The garden pictures with the children is so sweet.

The blues you used on the table are so soft and gentle and light, they look ever so pretty.
Great box transformation. Amazing what a piece of sheet music and a few well chosen embellishments can do.
