Easter Day

 I think coloring Easter eggs 
is my favorite part of the holiday.
 Next to watching my girl 
find her Easter Basket!
Happy Easter!
Bye for now!

Around the House this Easter

 A flower of the yarn persuasion.
I crocheted a daffodil!
 A flower of the cookie persuasion.
We baked and decorated Easter cookies!
And ate them, yum!
Bye for now!

Around the House

 Just a few signs of spring
around the house,
like crocheted doilies.
 A beautiful new dress, I can't wait to wear.
And, a look out the window,
saying that maybe it will be awhile for spring to get here.

Oh well, 
bye for now!

Vintage Archie Comic Books

 I've had these Archie comic books
ever since I was a kid, 
I could never bring myself to get rid of them.
But now I finally decided it was time for them to go.
But before that, I took some pix of the cute
outfits that Betty and Veronica wore.
I mean, that's really why I read them!
To look at the fabulous fashions!

 And just for kicks,
here is one of the ads!
 I also had a couple of other comics,
like these two from "Bunny".
 Love that yellow swimsuit!
Bye for now!

at the alpine inn.
Looks like it's full of passengers!

Thrift Store Finds

 Found at the thrift this week: 
Some lovely floral fabric and a vintage 
craft book from 1978.
 I love this circle skirt,
check out the knee socks she is rockin!

 This girl is just about to sip
something tasty, I hope!
 Her pin and these desk accessories
are made using twisted tissue paper.
 Here are some fun globes made out of string.
 And butterfly string art.
Bye for now!
