Hello Monday

Hi Everyone ,
I am thankful for another Monday and  to  visit with you  today . Last  Friday  ,I took my oldest granddaughter to her monthly Home School  Book Club .  Below are two pics I made of the beautiful afternoon while we were driving down the highway and no I was not driving . lol

We made red rose rings from pipe cleaners as a craft . They were featured on the Martha Stewart Show.You can find the directions  on her site .

We stopped at Dairy Queen for Ice Cream .

I snapped this pic from the window, I liked the red umbrella against the green & red holly buses.

We stopped by the Good Will , I found this  cute vintage 60's Dream Pet . I think it is a Goat .

I found this cool Cup Cake Book .

Then I came across this very cute cup cake plate .

I always look for art at the Good Will. I found this original acrylic painting by Artist Sally Huss.

Trader Joes's had bunches of Daffodil's for 1.69 , two  bunches will fill an average vase.

Last week , I had my mind on snowmen . So, I made these snow people from beverage bottles , rice ,buttons &  socks .

I put a pic of a snowman my granddaughters made in this winter  Frame .

I will leave with you with  these words  from Romans 12:12 - Be Joyful in Hope , patient in affliction ,faithful in prayer .

I am joining  Blue Monday, Mellow Yellow Monday,
