Happy Monday!

Howdy! I hope all of you had a good weekend.  It went by to fast for me.  I had to work on Saturday at my part time job.  I have to take in all the extra hours I can get these days.  I'm still looking  for a full time job and that is a full time thing in itself.  I just went to a few blogs for a visit and ran across a giveaway at my friend at the Prairie Flower farm.  She is giving away a book by Beth Moore (So long Insecurity)  Love Beth Moore! 

I have been busy as a beaver trying to finish my tote bag for my tote bag swap I signed up for on Snickerdoodle dreams.  My deadlilne is fast approaching and I have to get it mailed before May 1st.  I only have a few things to do to it.  I won't post a picture of it until it has arrived to Jeannette in Australia.  Can't wait to see what I get in return.  Getting back to sewing reminds me that I have so many projects lined up to do.  I have seen so much new pretty fabic out there lately. 
Do any of you out there know anything about roses?  I purchased a rose bush quite some time ago, planted it, it only bloomed very little at first, then when it did it bloomed pink roses, now this year it has bloomed like crazy and the blooms are dark dark burgandy.  How crazy is that!  Any way let me know if any of you out there has the answer.  Here is a picture of it.

Also had this for supper the other night, was it ever yummy!
Taco Salad!

Last but not least, my Iris's are blooming. 

Hope you have a blessed week. :)

How does your garden grow.

Wow a week goes by quick.  I didn't realize I hadn't posted since last Wednesday.  I just haven't had much time to post lately.  I am enjoying Spring so much this year, even though I'm not planting many flowers,but I am going to put in a small garden.  (wish me luck on that one).  My knockout roses are really pretty this year, and so far the deer have left them alone. 

Of course miss Tia has to come out of her dog house to get in the picture taking.  She just wanted a belly rub.  (Incase your wondering Tia is blind in one eye) She is such a sweet dog. She's my buddy when ever I'm outside working in the yard or going to the pond.  She still trys to chase a ball, even though she can't see it very well. 

This Flower I purchased last year on the clearance rack at Loew's (only a 1$) I bought 2 of  them and the both are doing so well this year.  I wish now I would have gotten more of them.  But they where so close to kicking the bucket that I only wanted to take chances on 2 of them.  Picture below is what they are.

This past Saturday I went to the Bluebonnet Festival.  It was so crowded.  All the wild flowers where so gorgeous, the bluebonnets where spectacular!
I've just got to get busy on my bag swap project, I haven't even started on it yet.  I'm so excited, my swap partner lives in Australia. 
Happy trails!
(just felt like saying that)

Bunny collection

My bunny (or rabbit) collection.  I figured I would post about them before I put them away for next year. I have more in my bathroom of all places.  I really love my bunnies. 

(Picture below)
The big one in the middle and the two on the out side (ends) where made by Gerry.  There is one that I crocheted years ago, and one that I purchased at a craft show, he is made out of a hobnail bedspread. 

Here is the big bunny by herself.  This one is one of my favorite.  It was sewn by a very dear lady (Gerry) that is no longer here,  ( I really miss her).  Gerry was excellent at sewing.
