Snow day::Fun day

A very happy Monday to you all! 
Here's a bit of our snow day that I mentioned in the last post. 

Everything outside was so pretty and covered in the white snow. Jerry was having a blast in it! He was zooming around the whole yard! :) 

Of course after being outside in the cold we had to have to hot cocoa! 
{With heart shaped marshmallows} :) 

 I've been making several of these little crochet hearts! They are pretty fast and easy to whip up! 
And to cute too! I've also been making granny squares, after seeing my "Mug Sweater" my sis wants one for her tea cup, so I made her up a couple grannys to pick from, and just need to hook them together and fasten a cute button on :)
Hope you have a wonderful start of a new week!!

Soft pink and Ivory Tweed

Hi, Happy Wednesday! 
I hope you don't mind, I've been playing around taking a lot of new pictures in the last couple days :) 
It has been super cold here, yesterday it said it was only 1 degrees when I got up and windchill of -12! Yikes! Today is suppose to be a high of 19 and a low of 12, much warmer of what we've had but still pretty cold! Brrr...

He's too funny, I got Luke that giant stuffed Dr. Pepper back in 2005! (Yes, somehow we still have it!) We were going to give it to goodwill and Jerry seen it and loved it, so he has been playing and playing with it! haha. He drags it room to room, beating it up! LOL. ~the last picture, he must have tuckered himself out, time to take a nap by Dr. Pepper! :) 

Oh how I LOVE this picture of our Jerry boy!  :) 

I've really been loving crocheting!
 I can't wait to show you what I've been working on and making!!

A few granny squares in a soft pink and ivory tweed. Love how they came out!
I made something very sweet with these three....
 I'll have to upload the pictures and show you in the next post!! 
Any guesses of what it might be??? 

Hope you have a lovely day!! Happy creating!

Valentine Earrings :)

A few new pairs of earrings for Valentine's Day~
A few weeks ago I ran into one of the antique stores and found these old bottles. I actually seen them, looked at them and thought I don't know what I would do with them....they were old spice jars. So I left them there, got home and was like Hello, I should have just gotten them, I'm sure I'll think of something to use them for! Then I began thinking of cute things I could do with them. I wasn't able to get back until a few days later and luckily they were still there! I was pretty excited! Lol.
~So I started with this one, and decorated it for Valentine's Day.
  I put some small red confetti hearts in the bottom of the jar. 
"Aint cha gonna ask me to be your Valentine? "

Ok, back to the earrings ....... lol 

I thought both of these pairs turned out sweetly.

And this pair I thought were just "fun" :) And they are super light too!

Happy day to you!!

Happy Friday! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 
I feel like these weeks are flying by so quickly! And its already another weekend.
Take care! xox Holly

A happy Saturday

Hi friends! A happy Saturday to you all! 
Have you been up to anything fun lately? I learned how to crochet last weekend and i'm working on making a cowl scarf. I'm so excited for the finished project! I love how it's going so far! I purchased a pattern for a "mug sweater" using two granny squares, to keep  that coffee cup warm and my hands cool, ~that is already my next project I'm planning! :) 

Yesterday my grandma dropped us off a loaf of banana nut bread and some beer bread.....they both are so good! {Thank you grandma!}

Through the winter I've had a few little gifts sitting in an old suitcase 
by the door for any guests that would come to visit us :)
 Hot chocolate with marshmallows, 
Old fashion hard candies, 
Cappuccino mix,
 and peppermint "crunch"
And for some reason (which i'm surprised!) I didn't get a picture of the suitcase.

~Orange you going to be my Valentine??
I have this little tag sitting in our kitchen by the fruit bowl // with oranges in the bowl! LOL 
Thought it was cute :)  

I've been thinking and wanting to do a giveaway......
so I think i'm going to do one very soon! It will be my first one!! EEEE! 

Hope you have a lovely Saturday and weekend!!
