Twinkle in my eye!!

There is ONE thing that can always put a "TWINKLE" in my eye....

      Shopping...At the "Christmas Tree Store"!! Have you ever been there??  The deals are spectacular and the "stuff" is wonderful!! I found a prim lamp for $6.50!!! A lamp for pete's sake! I need to "prim" it up a bit more for my liking ....but it was a great find! When my daughter gives me back the camera, i can take before and afters of it so you can love it too!!  I also bought an adorable basket with a tin "flower" sign on the front for a $1.00!!!  Unbelievable!!! I could spend all day there and spend tons..but my budget won't allow it!! 

 Do you have a fave store that can always bring a smile to your face???  I bet you do!!!  

I am almost done with my latest dishcloth order...six made of natural cotton. They are so pretty and prim....i love them. My SIL is supposed to be coming tomorrow so we can make her little "chunky monkey" a fun little onesie with matching leg warmers!! Oh yes....leg warmers!! They are back girls!!  too funny i say!   I can't wait to see her in the outfit. I will definitely have to take pics of that!!! Trust me you will enjoy them....she is a cutie!

After that....i have tons of projects i would love to get started....such as teaching my littlest daughter how to make a blanket..I would love to donate them to the needy, but i am not sure how to go about that. Does anyone have any ideas?? They would be greatly appreciated. I am trying to teach them that your talents can be used to help others....while you are enjoying yourself.   There is no better feeling than to know that the talents God gave you are helping others!!! 

Well....i suppose i should leave you all for now...its time to scrub the tomorrow. They had a much needed four day vacation and they are ready to get back!

May God bless you in all you do!!!



  1. Hello Tonia!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog to say hi! And thank you for you kind words of encouragement! You keep me blogging! You sound like a very loving mommy to your sweet children and making a house a home.

    One of my favorite places to shop is HomeGoogs and the dollar stores!

    Have a great week!


  2. I have heard of the Christmas Tree Store but never been to it. That could be a good thing though. lol I don't have a favorite store to visit but I do love visiting the shops in St. Charles, MO and going to the Jour de Fete in St. Genevieve, MO. Maybe I need to start my own shop since there isn't one close to where I live. Hmmmmm.....

    Hope your week is off to a good start!
