Mother's Day 2011

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Mother's Day. I know I sure did. My son took me out to a French restaurant for brunch and we had the best time together.
My son Caleb and I in front of the restaurant.

This is my best friend, also known as my husband Darryl.
Later on we had a late lunch with my husbands parents at our home on the back deck. We had homemade chicken salad sandwiches, mashed potatoes and Bush's baked Grillin beans and a huge salad fresh picked this morning.
My in-laws, Dot and Glenn also known as "Me-Maw & Pa-Paw".
Besides the Mother's day activites, I have also been busy with more crafts. Here are some of the things I've been working on this week.

This is my Dollar Tree "Lil-Roo" before and after.

And here he is on the dining room table. (Told you he was little, but cute huh?)
I planted some flowers this week as well. Here is a picture of some of the flowers. I got the faux pot from Wal-mart. It just looks like a ceramic pot.
Geraniums, English Ivy and Purple Daisies
I don't know if I have mentioned this before, but I have small website where I sell what I call "Java Spirits". They are decorated wine bottles that light up and have flavored coffee beans inside and when they are plugged in, it smells like fresh made coffee. Hazelnut is my favorite. Here are some samples.

Well that's all for now. Let me know what you think of the wine bottles.

Love ya'll
