My Mother, (aka Grandma Bliss,) got this flower for Christmas. Well actually it was the bulb with about 1 or 2" of a green stem. It came with the pot and a small bag of dirt. She planted the bulb on January 9th.
It now has 4 big blooms!
It is Beautiful!

First I would like to say "THANK YOU" Your advise on what to do with my cabinet was so important to me and I have now decided I am going to paint it!! (I was secretly hoping that is what you would say, hehehe) It is going to be a BIG project for me though so, I will be painting an old buffet first. (My practice project.) And then I will paint the cabinet. Just waiting for warmer wheather before I get started since I will be painting them in the garage. Wish me luck and Thanks again!
This is a picture I found at an estate sale. When I saw it ,I had to have it. I think I only paid $2 or $3 for it. It is pretty banged up and has a lot of imperfections but I love it!

I just wanted to share this adorable picture with you.
I wish the photo's were better so you could really see how cute it is.
(I'm not the best photographer but I'm learning.)
Have a Fabulous week!

To Paint or Not To Paint..............

OK, When I bought this cabinet, my intentions were to paint it white!
After it sat in our garage for a couple of months my sweet husband convinced me to bring it in and try it in our home for a while in it's original color....brown.
My husband is one of those guys that thinks it is very wrong to paint wood. But I love white and love painted furniture.
So, I'm am asking for your advise,.......Do I Paint or Do I stay with the Brown???

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think. I value your opinion! Thanks everyone for your help.

Christmas morning at Grandma Bliss' house!
Grandma Bliss made all of the boy's quilt's for Christmas this year. A homemade quilt is the best gift ever in my opinion and my boy's feel the same way. Garrett and Grandma snuggled up under his quilt!
Branson all warm under his quilt.
All five boy's showing off their quilt's. They LOVE them!!!
Hey Grandma Bliss, "I think next Christmas should be the girl's year for a quilt!" (hint, hint)
