Ten Days!

It's been 10 days since my last post.
I seem to have lost my blogging mojo, 
but I hope it will come back soon.
I have found a few thrifty goodies to share!
This pretty plate was in the secretary for Valentine's 
Bordallo Pinehiro and only .75  Score!
I replaced it with this for St. Patrick's Day
Both of these pieces were thrifted several years ago and found at separate times!  
I will continue to change out the plates seasonally I think.  
Fun way to decorate!

I found another cubbie!!
It is bigger then my other's.  I need to clean it and find a place for it.  Then the fun part, filling it!! 

This past week has been a pretty good one with a few ups and downs.  I meet a blogging friend and will write that post soon.  It was also my youngest daughter's birthday and we have celebrated all week.  Last night Tiger wanted to make his Mom a mountain cake made out of mac n cheese.  He has such creative ideas.  I had the pan
 and his Dad had the mac n cheese. 
Here is how it turned out! 
 Tiger was so excited that his vision came true!  Macaroni Mountain! 
And I'm sorry but I can't be old enough to have a child that is 34...right?? 
Happy Birthday Sara!

Wishing you JOY,

Tiger is such a sweetie to come up with the idea of a macaroni cake, what a clever thinker. Love your pretty plates, and the new cubby is going to be so much fun to fill up!

I love how you change out and decorate for the seasons. And Happy Birthday Sarah. And that cake was just perfect - what a great idea!

That little Tiger has such a creative mind to even think of using the cake pan for mac and cheese!
Wishing Sarah a Happy Birthday...and many more.
Oh, and I ♥ the pink heart plate.

What child is so creative to think of a mac-n-cheese mountain birthday cake!?! Love the shamrocks.

Macaroni and cheese mountain--why not? Love it! The shamrock plate is so pretty! I know just what you mean--I'm not old enough to have a 32 year old daughter, either ;)

No loss of mojo! I always love your posts, and this one as well. Your St. Patrick's Day plate and cup is gorgeous. Great idea to change out for the holidays. Happy birthday to your sweet and daughter! You must have been a child bride Linda. ;) Sweet Mac & Cheese cake that Tiger designed. Yummy looking too!

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! You'll get your mojo back. First of all look at all of these neat things you've found! Take care sweet friend.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

The heart plate is FAB! I will have to post a photo of MY new treasures...they look wonderful on my china hutch!

Sarah said...

Linda, I'm suffering the same. Working on a new post tonight, but it's not easily coming together as I would wish. ;-)

Love your new finds! The cubby will be fun to fill!

I found a few finds this week at a consignment store. Will share them soon.

What a cute and fun 'cake' for your little Tiger to create for him momma! And NO, we cannot be old enough to have children in their 30's... Blessings, Cindy xo

We all deserve a break now and then. When it begins to feel like stressful work and not enjoyment, take a break. We are not demanding daily/weekly posts.

Mereknits said...

You are grieving my friend, take you time and blog when you can. Happy Birthday to your daughter. I love Tiger's vision.

Susan said...

Sometimes a break is all we need to feel refreshed, Linda. Love your treasures, especially the heart plate. Happy (late) Birthday to Sara! Hugs. Susan

bj said...

ahhh, that Tiger is so cute and that HAS to be the cutest cake of all time....xoxoxo

Hartwood Roses said...

We all go through phases where we find it hard to sit and blog. Doesn't matter how often you post, we will be here to oooh and aaah over your thrift finds, encourage you through tough times, be amazed at how big the grands are getting, and to tell you that you look mah-velous no matter how old your children are.

Rue said...

Happy Birthday to your daughter :)

I'm so sorry about your Charlie, Linda. No wonder you've been on a blog break, with your brother and your sweet baby going to Heaven.

Big giant far away hugs, my sweet friend,
