A Very Simple Project Day...

 Well, our sale is over and we had a great time...today I am doing a few little projects sprucing up in the kitchen!  I brought home the leftover plants from our set-up - primrose, heather, ivy, and a fern- and placed them in a chippy pale aqua basket on the table.  Added two vintage porcelain birds and instant spring!
  I also did a simple framing project.  My daughter found some great little vintage store placards for $2.00 each at an antique store.
 I mounted one on a piece of heavyweight textured scrapbooking paper and used a great distressed frame that I found 1/2 off at Michaels.  I make my grandchildren waffles on the weekends they stay at our home, so it is perfect!  I'm going to frame the coffee card also, and the lunch box card will be used in a sale with some vintage black and silvery tin lunchboxes!
 I'm just enjoying relaxing today- so are my pugs!  They decided to curl up together in a sunny window this morning!  Enjoy the day!
Until next time...
Linda
