Too much fun......





I have been off the whole month of January, and can I just tell you,, I have been having too much fun....and I really dont want to go back to work,lol, at least not yet. I feel like Cinderella waiting for midnight....anyways,Im not sure when I go back, I know its in the next week or so, so I will continue to enjoy this time off, doing just what I want to do, fun stuff!
Speaking of fun stuff, check out this Fiesta tea pot and creamer and sugar set that arrived on my door step yesterday thanks to ebay....its so beautiful I cant stand it.If you remember I bought Fiesta dishes at Christmas.....well, I have a confession to make, I have a bit of a quirk, maybe some of you can relate, but I cannot just buy one of anything, I cannot MAKE one of anything, I certainly cannot just EAT one of anything...and when I start collecting something, Im not happy until I have it ALL, fast....in other words, Im on a mission to complete the collection as fast as I can....now that isnt exactly what the concept of collecting is I know, but I cant help myself, I want it all and I want it all NOW. I was going to ask for this teapot for my birthday, but then I just happened to see it on ebay, and you know the rest...
The same goes for my scrappy stuff, if one is good, more is better...just look at this pile of Valentines scrappy fun.....now I did not NEED any of it, but I sure like to look at it!
Back to only making ONE of anything, heres another Annie, I just had to make her after Tammy told me about this website where you can get FREE Annie patterns......omg so I went there and checked it out, and YES, she has free Annie patterns, so I downloaded one, and whipped her up, she was so fast and easy! Thanks to De for being so generous!!!!!!
OK, so another thing I have gotten addicted to since I have been off this month is the food network, omg, Paula Deen is my fav.....and that lady with the show called semi homemade or something like that, where her kitchen is a different color and theme every day, and she wears a matching top, and doews incredible tablescapes, and love her show!!! SOOOOOO because Im so compulsive, I just HAD to find one of those salt jars they all use, you know how they pinch the salt in thier fingers and with a flair it goes into the pot...so I found one at my fav place and I swear, when I do it the way they do it on the shows, I feel like a chef!!!!!!!! Its so much fun, I urge all of you to go get one, my daughter has one and I saw it in her kitchen on my last visit and I thought it was so cute, but seriously , it will make you feel more competent in the kitchen!!!!!!
So today it finally is not raining, Dallas says we have a break for a day or two, I might venture out, I think I need some exercise, Ive been inside entirely too long...........when Im stuck inside too long ebay and QVC sometimes get the best of me, thank God Im going back to work soon!

Hi Deb,
I love all of your Annies. I also like your little vase of flowers behind her. Are they buttons or felt? Did you make them? I am sorry to hear that you have to go back to work soon!

She turned out adorable!! I can't believe how fast you whipped that baby out:) O.k I need to get busy, thanks for the inspiration:)

I can totally relate to your "compulsiveness" I have this thing where I want to eat and drink the same stuff the people are in whatever book I'm reading at the time...weird lol. One time I was reading a book and he described his china and it sounded cute...I went out looking for it :) My salt jar is an old lemon curd jar...now I want one like you have...LOL See what you've done? :)
