April is a Wonderful Month!

I LOVE The month of April!

The flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping around the house.

The Father Quail sits on the gate posts and hollers to his mate to cross over into our property.

I just couldn't put my little lambs away yet. I had plans to make a spring banner or pennants, but I've been outside working in the yard too much!

My friend Leslie brought me these measuring cups for my birthday. I taught her daughter 1st grade. Now she is in High School!

Aren't they gingham- y cute!

My stove looks bare!

But the best part of the week is, I received a surprise birthday package from my dear friend, Debbie Kay!

This gorgeous red rosé hankie was tucked inside this sweet bluebird egg!

She sent this adorable teacher glasses holder. I just started wearing reading glasses now and then. How cute is this!

Some personalized notecards and a wonderful bluebird card! Ohhhhhhhh swoon!

A cute Dutch kids table mat and dotty red pinwheel!

And....

A Mary Engelbreit book....filled with inspiration!

This would look lovely at my house!

And this narrow box is definitely going on Hubs Honey-do list!

Thank you so much Debbie Kay! You have blessed me!

If you dont know Debbie Kay yet, hop over and visit her cute blog. She has the cutest blog and home! She loves to collect cute doo-dads like I do. Debbie is so adorable, and so sweet and generous! Thank you sweet Sister!

  19. How adorable are those lamb planters all lined up? I recognize some of those as ones I've got! Everything's so cute, and what a nice package you received!

  20. Oh my gosh, your planters are darling! I love how you adorned one with a fun party hat! I love them all lined up and looking so sweet. Your friend sounds like a doll and sent you so many darling things. I have that same Mary E. book and I love it! The measuring cups are so cute and your stove is always such an eye stopper! I will have to hop over and visit Debby. If she has half as much of cuteness as you she's a winner! : )
