Hot Items . . . On Sale NOW!!!

I'm suddenly realizing time is swiftly passing, (only 6 weeks to go . . . or 7 or 8!!!) so I got a little into cleaning mode today.  My nursery had become a catchall place that needed cleaned!!  During my cleaning I came across a box of things I would love to sell, so they won't need to take up storage space anymore:)  My need for space is creating some deals for you!!  I'm dropping prices on a bunch of my stuff, hoping to be able to sell it.

Everything for sell will have a number on it and you can email me here, or leave a comment on my blog post if you're interested in something.  I will gladly deliver to locals, but will have to charge a shipping fee if you want something mailed.

First up are Clipboards.  #1-4 are small ones (6"x9") and #5-6 are regular size (9"x12.5").  Both sizes have clips at the top where you can hang them up with a nail.  These are also great to haul around with you if you need a clipboard . . . or you can attach a magnetic strip to the back and use them on your fridge.  #'s 1-4 are on sale for $6.00 each and #'s 5-6 are on sale for $7.00.

Next I have 1" 3-Ring Binders that have 20 plastic sleeves in them for recipes.  If you print off alot of recipes from the internet, this kind of book is what you need.  These cost $6.00 each.

Then come the Crayon Rolls with notepads.  These are great for your purse for your little ones to use while you're waiting somewhere . . . or for when you're driving . . . or for whatever you can think of:)  #10 has frogs & lilypads, #11 has bugs, bees, dragonflies, etc., #12 has flowers and #13 has hats, shoes and purses.  If you'd like a photo of them opened up like #13, let me know and I'll email it to you.  These cost $7.50 each.

 I have just one Child's Apron left.  It is sized for ages 2-5, made from vintage brown floral fabric, with orange rick-rack trim.  This is on sale for $9.00.

And then my Circles & Circles Purple Baby Quilt!!!  As you can see this is a beautiful quilt that took alot of time.  The back is purple minky, which will be so soft for your little one to cuddle in!  This quilt is approximately 34"x39".  It is for sell for $85.00.

Or, in case it's a little boy you have . . . I have a Farm/Cow Baby Quilt.  This quilt is also backed with soft minky fabric.  It is approximately 36" square.  It costs $80.00 

This is a Perpetual Birthday/Special Occasions Calendar.  It is 6"x12".  It is for sell for $15.00.

Then I have some Hanging Baby Rattle/Toys for carseats.  The babies love the noise the bells make . . . and they really aren't irritating like some baby toys!!!  These are $7.00 each.

We're almost to the end!!!  These are some cute little Bags.  They have a zipper closure across the top.  Their sizes are listed on the picture and the bottoms of all of them are 2.5" wide.  These would work great for a little cosmetic bag, a bag for little things in your purse, a bag for a little girl to keep her important stuff in, etc.!!!!  #'s 24-25 are on sale for $8.00 and #'s 26-27 cost $7.00.

And last, but not least, I have a bunch of Adult Sized Aprons.  This is just an example of one of them.  If you are interested, I have them listed on my Etsy site, where you can see pictures of all of them.  I have them in black, brown, dark green and cranberry colors.  The flowers on them are attached with a pin, so they can easily be removed.  If you buy them here, by contacting me through my blog, they are $12.50 each.

Waiting to hear from you all:)

Oh Henry Bars

Last night I made Oh Henry bars.  We hadn't had them in forever until I made them a few weeks ago and found out how addicting they are!  So I decided to make them again :-)  They're also really easy to make.  They sure disappear fast in our house! :-)

Bronwyn enjoying hers last night :-)

Oh Henry Bars

2/3 c. margarine, softened
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. corn syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
4 c. oatmeal
1 c. chocolate chips
2/3 c. peanut butter

Cream margarine, sugar and corn syrup together.  Add vanilla, salt and oatmeal; mix well and put in a greased 10 X 15 inch pan.  Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes.  When cooled, put on frosting.  For frosting, melt chocolate chips and peanut butter together.

(We no longer have a 10 X 15" pan, so I used a 9 X 13" one and they are obviously a little thicker, but they turned out just as good!)

I woke up to the snow falling and the wonderful thing called 2 1/2 hour late start.  So, here are some pictures of what it looks like outside right now.  By the way, there is snow route, too.

Here are a few pictures to show what the driveway looks like.

And our back yard, just to show the prettiness of the trees:)


Love and God's Peace,

Well, I'm not exactly sure how to get these pictures in the exact order I want them, but oh well :)

Today I made cinnamon raisin bread.  It isn't near as good as last time I made it, but it sure tasted good, warm and fresh!

Walker on Valentine's Day.

Reid fixed Clayton's sign, but he still hasn't noticed after quite a few hours!

Because of the little rascal pictured above (Walker), we now have to make sure we keep the bathroom and our girls door closed.  For awhile, every day he would come in our room & open up a bunch of Tara's candy.  He didn't really bother eating too much of it, though!

I took this picture for our project we're doing in Digital Photography.  I brought my tulips home last week I think from school.  We planted them in October and left them outside, then in January I think, they brought them into the greenhouses, which I guess makes them think it's Spring and they bloom.

Aimee on Valentine's Day.

After the school kids went to bed on Valentine's day, I got Bronwyn dressed up and took some pictures of her- also for my Digital Photography project.

After a couple pictures, she got grumpy and I finally convinced her to let me keep taking pictures of her after I took a couple outside :)

I had to keep thinking of different ways to take pictures of her so she would let me keep taking them :)

Then a funny face.

Then Hunter figured he needed a picture taken, too.

When Walker came along, they of course needed him in the picture, too!

January 15th, I babysat for James & Ramona's kids.  Tellie was very helpful taking care of Jared and then Alexa got lucky when he slept the whole time it would've been her turn :)
After Camille woke up from her nap, we decided to play picture place.  They all dressed up pretty (well, the girls :) and we found some different backgrounds.  Chauntel was first.

I played around with a couple of the pictures on Picnik.

Lexa was second.

Here is a picture Alexa? took of me & Tellie.

Millie had on some shoes that were just a little too big for her :)

Then Zach had his turn.. he was being silly :)

Alexa Lynn

Blayne was waiting his turn, too, but then James & Ramona got home and we stopped.  We had a lot of fun, though!

Love & God's Peace,
