~ Perfect Saturday Evening ~

This past weekend we celebrated our recent anniversary with our dear friends Rob and Michelle. We had dinner at The Elephant Bar and it was so cool, they had requested one of the private booths. There are four of them and they look out over the dining room...and it is just fun to be seated in one. You are kind of secluded but not isolated. Our dinners were delicious and the desserts were over the top yummy. Michelle knows how I.. love, love, love Fiesta dishes and look at their gift to us.......
Fiesta serving pieces. Serving and slotted spoons, cold meat fork, butter knife and look, isn't that the cutest sugar spoon ever...I know when we use these we will think of you both and the fun times we have together. Saturday was a perfect evening...thank you, hugs Linda

Saturday and Sunday.....

were two beautiful days here. Lots of sunshine a perfect day to be outdoors. I did do a few little things around the house and then I spent most of yesterday on the patio creating.... fun little scissor fobs. Here are three of my favorites. I call these...
scissor eye candy....they just make me happy. The owl scissors are from Lisa, the middle pair were a treat to myself and the red and blue pair were an anniversary gift from Carl. I love using different scissors for each stitch project....I never know what will strike my fancy. I know lots of stitchers have a scissor addiction....I'm thinking I'm one of them. Besides making fobs yesterday I started this sweet little free stitchie from Lori of Not Forgotten Farm....
and finished it this evening. I plan to make it into a little pillow or door hanger...not quite sure which.....but I'll share when it's all stitched up.
I hope you will visit Lori's will enjoy, all you need to do is click on her name. Oh, and for the little free stitch you can find it on her April 17th post.
Hugs and enjoy creating...hugs, Linda

Simple pleasures......

make me happy. Peace roses in a little jello mold....sunshine for the kitchen.
Bright and cheery newly knitted dish cloths.......
The sweetest smelling rose favorite, a new little vase.
Tiny little baby Blue Bird of happiness......
A beautiful rose, Otello..... in full bloom. Just little bits of joy make me smile. What little pleasures make you smile and brings you happiness? hugs, Linda
