things i love

salvation army finds: tall glass hurricane $3 medium size $2
50%-70% off "christmas" decorations that can be used all year long

finished quilt tops: i finished two this last week and was suppose to quilt this one but the boys made...

this fort around my computer and sewing area so i got nothing creative done this weekend but i did enjoy a very relaxing time saving the republic with the boys in our own little blanket fort world, well until i got kicked out of the "club" which then the little one and i enjoyed listening to the boys' "battle plans" while we watched girly cartoons and read some books under the left over blankets and quilts that weren't being used.
ps:got the phone call sunday morning that GI Joe husband is now on american soil. i.can't.believe.it.

my kids love making blanket forts... but it does make things a little crazy around the house when you can't get from one room to the other without someone pretending your a storm trooper and challenging you to a light saber duel. At least that's what happens in my house!
It's so great to hear that GI Joe is back on safe turf!!!

I bet this month cannot possibly go fast enough. I'd be willing to bet you'll get a lot done and be super productive in order to keep busy. :)

Love your SA finds. I stopped in today, but nothing. I like the little trees. Your bedroom quilt is beautiful. I would go with that beautiful blue color in the quilt. I know whatever you pick will be great. Jackie

The trees or the goose ? Or both ? LOVE the goose. Trees are great! But really LOVE the goose. ;o) I inherited my goose when my parents retired and started living in a coach and traveling. They bought a house not too long ago, and the goose disappeared. LOL.

K said...

Love the pics and the fort! That's great that your GI Joe is on American soil! You are one tough mama to handle it all on your own for a time!
