Party Fun

Welcome Blogger Friends,
So glad you have come back again to visit! Last week, I shopped one  of my sheds searching for something to decorate my kitchen table. I picked up this green tablecloth and this pink basket of finds. I didn't use the basket, but I think this year I will use it to plant grass in and make a living Easter Basket.




As you can see on my Header , this is what I came up with . I shot this pic early in the day when it was flooded with back-light , so it was a little dark because of the frontal shadows that were cast .I worked on it to lighten it but I favor putting emphasis on the contrast between light & dark in my pics 



I love banners!This one was downloaded free from the internet . But I always forget my source, wish it would be written somewhere on all downloads . Thanks to the generous one who created it .


I love these beautiful vintage  garden girl card images I also got from the internet. Can't wait to start gardening , they make it look so inviting .


 Just about the only thing in my garden blooming now is my bottle tree!


Yesterday , I gave a birthday party for the two March Birthday Girls in the family.


The theme was Disney's Phineas & Ferb  Show .




Cupcakes


 Making cotton candy with Dr Doofenshmirtz's Cotton Candyinator


Making silly pics







Party Favors , bought some from Etsy. I love to shop on Etsy!



Having fun putting mustaches on everything 









The two Birthday Girls 


I will leave you this  quote from Amy Carmichael.
"It is the littlest things of life , the minute, unimportant looking things, that are most likely to shatter our peace. Because they are so small, it is most likely that we will fight them ourselves instead of looking up to our Strong God --- our Barrier between us and them , as the pillar of cloud formed a barricade between the Egyptians and Israel (Exodus14:20).

  1. So many pretties! I absolutely love the vintage cards and the way you have them displayed. Your bottle tree is so pretty I bet it has many different looks according to the weather. I've never seen one before.
    Thanks for such a lovely post that surely speaks of Spring coming soon!

    Hugs

  10. I love the tea cup and saucer! Can't wait to see your living Easter basket. My daughter took a bucket that she found somewhere and planted all sorts of things in it. She forgot to mark what she planted. I guess we'll just have to wait and see! I was making (trying to make) Perry sounds today. Maybe because we were singing the theme song to Phineas and Ferb after lunch today.

  23. Myrna, you truly are the master of decorations. I love to visit your blog and sit with open mouth, starstruck over the abundance. What really blew me away was your bottle tree. I shall try in some way or the other to be inspired by that. I hate it, when I have to throw away beautiful glass bottles.

  27. Girlfriend, you need to be a party planner! We do not have another life, other than our eternal life. Perhaps the good Lord will put you in charge of all the parties in heaven! So exciting to think of it!

    One of your sheds? Oh what a giggle, how many do you have asks the girl with the curl?

    You and the family make me smile. Love to you, always and forever, the end.
