Happy Pink Saturday Pinkettes! Hope everyone is doing well and recovering from all the Easter festivities!

Now fess up...who had a Cadbury Egg overload? ha!


Please don't get defensive...I have a confession. For me, something about those make me a bit, queasy. I just can't connect with it's sweet chocolately goodness when the inside looks like this....


Just seeing that photo makes me feel....


...me and those of you who had one cad too many! LOL!

I know, me bad! Oodles and oodles of peeps love them, including my beautiful daughter and my handsome son, aka Monkey Head Fred.

I'm sure you KNOW I'm just stalling and I KNOW some of you anxious peeps have scrolled ahead to see who won. ha!

I truly wish I could surprise each of you like Oprah..."everyone look under your keyboard...!" But I can't.

I do want to give a big huge thank you to all who entered, and major big smoochies to you darlings who tweeted and posted and helped spread the word about my giveaway!

You are all so special to me!

BARGIN HUNTING & $50.00 TARGET STORE GIVEAWAY

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter! The weather was horrid here, windy and raining buckets. We've had loads more rain the past 2 weeks, it's definitely messing up my furniture painting schedule.

So no furniture to show you yet. But a bit of progress on the living room project.

On one raining day I stopped into Joanne's fabric and found this in their remnants aisle....

IS YOUR PAGE HEADER TIRED?.......

I just had to share this with you!

As most of you know, Monkey Head Fred was home for spring break to work on my agenda (painting furniture). Well, it turns out we did work on an agenda, just not mine! ha!

Due to the unfortunate turn of events a few months back, (you can view post here), I've been trying to find a way to put my creative juices to work. This is what was proposed to me; and of course me, being forever the adventurer, I decided to give it a go.

I am so pleased and so excited to announce the launch of our new online service.

Taking a bit of liberty with a double entendre, we have settled with...


My Custom Page Headers

The "My" being the double entendre ha!
