105th Birthday Party - Yellow & Gray

Yellow & Gray Party Decor for 105th Birthday Party

Not many families get the opportunity to celebrate for the same reason we did last month.  My great grandmother turned 105!  Believe it or not, we have 6 living generations.  We are truly blessed to still have Grandmother, as we call her, still in our lives.  She is a total sweetheart: kind, loving, and nurturing.  She is extremely healthy, remembers and recognizes us, still reads, plays bingo, and more...it is astounding!  She certainly doesn't look or seem her age.

Easy Monogrammed Ring in 15 Minutes or Less

Monogrammed Ring in 15 Minutes or Less

If you consider yourself a crafty person, then you probably know what it is like to have an urge to get creative, yet not know where to find the time to squeeze in a little project.  Last year, I joined Angie @ The Country Chic Cottage and Carolina @ 30 minute crafts for Craft Lightning -- crafts in 15 minutes or less.  You can read that post here: Embellished Hair Accessories.  Today, I am joining them for another round!  Since accessories are easy to craft in 15 minutes or less, I decided to create a monogrammed ring for today's crafty quickie.

Queen of Hearts Antiques & Interiors Blogger Brunch

Stash Booth at Queen of Hearts Antiques & Interiors

A couple of weekends ago, I attended a blogger brunch hosted by Queen of Hearts Antiques & Interiors.  Although I don't consider myself an antique junkie, I have always loved Queen of Hearts because they are so much more than just an antique store.  You can find new and old, drab and rehabbed, and antique and modern.  Whatever your style, budget, or need, you just might find what you are looking for at Queen of Hearts.
