Wonderful weekend

Spring arrangement I made for our dinner party on Sunday.  I am certainly loving all the different kinds of bulbs coming up around our new ole place.
Good afternoon friends.  Despite the dreary weather we've been having, we did manage to have a nice weekend.  We had Drew & Maria over for fish fry on Friday, went to a local high school musical on Saturday with friends, and had our dinner party yesterday afternoon/evening.  I had mentioned that we were planning to have steak, but the weather was cold and even snowy at times yesterday, and I didn't have the heart to make Mr. Whimzie stand out there cooking steaks on the grill.  We quickly made other plans after church and ended up having lemon-rosemary cornish game hens and homemade risotto and fresh baked cranberry nut bread too....and yes...let us not forget those cream puffs - yum!  We had a lovely time.

Today I've been working on orders and trying to finish up a couple of new items.  I'll be listing more soon, but I did manage to get this Patriotic prim bear listed in my Etsy shop earlier today.  

I had also promised to get pictures of the door box the Mister and I  made....finally remembered - here it is all decked out for Easter.  I added the little bunny, wooden cross and palms from church yesterday.

Back to work now - Enjoy your day.

  10. Such a beautiful spring bouquet, Wendy! Sounds like a fun and fulfilling weekend. Love those times spent with family and friends.

    Adorable Americana bear! I collect patriotic handmades and bears and my husband plays the drums so this would be perfect for us but alas... my prim account is pretty bare right now, haha. Hopefully I can get some more things listed and sold soon. Neat door box also, how fun it would be to change it out with the different seasons. Sunflowers would be gorgeous in there!

    Have a fantastic weekend, sweet friend~
