Blog housekeeping...

I'm back from Nashville. The conference was great but I'm glad to be home again. There's nothing like your own bed. Just look what was waiting for me when I came home!!

I have the sweetest family. By the way, my colleague and I did manage to get to B.B. King's Restaurant in downtown Nashville with the help of a taxi. The music was fantastic.

When I couldn't sleep at the hotel, I decided to do a bit of housekeeping on my blog and gave it an Easter make-over. I had pulled out favorite Easter items last weekend and created the blog header. The kookie wabit jar was from my grandmother's house. His ear has been repaired and I just love his sweet pastel colors. The frame bunny picture is from a vintage book that I picked up several years ago.

You'll also notice that I have new buttons along the top. For my newer followers, my husband spent all last summer designing and constructing a very elaborate treehouse.

With our winter weather "almost" ready to break, it's time to start plotting the next phase of our treehouse construction.

The exterior is nearly done (minus the flower boxes) but now the interior awaits flooring, walls and built-ins. Feel free to explore past treehouse blog entries here -

Go away snow!
Can't you see we're ready to start playing?

Aside from crafting, special needs adoptions and favorite recipes, I've also added a new button for my favorite thrifty vintage finds.

Have a thrifty/crafty weekend!

Loving the makeover and I can't wait to investigate the tree house project. The cedar shingles are lovely. I had a tree house as a kid, and it was a very special place.
