IVORY SISAL RUG


Greetings!
Hope your week is going well.
I have been keeping busy, busy. Lots going on around this house, but no complains, I am enjoying every minute of it.

A couple of weeks ago, I purchased a new rug for the entrance hall of our home.
I was looking around for something that would go well with our living/dinning room rugs and that it would 
withstand high traffic. 
I normally don't like to order large items like these online, but, this time around, I took a chance.

TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME #104



WELCOME TO TUESDAYS AT OUR HOME!



 I am so happy you are all here. Thank you for stopping by!
I feel like I have been away from the blog for months LOL, but I hope to get back to semi-normal this week.
Thank you all so very much for all the prayers and support you have given our family in the last few days.
Reading your comments made me proud of being part of this wonderful blogging community. You are all the best!
Thank you!

I am happy to announce our little grandson is finally home!
He was discharged yesterday, gaining weight fast, he is already nine pounds and trying to reach for his bottle 
when mom was feeding him in the hospital. :)


No more needles, wires and IV's for him, just lots and lots of love and kisses. 
We are trying so hard not to spoil him. :)
But who can resist that little face! 



Since I didn't host the party last week, I have no features to share, but that is ok, you all know I appreciate 
all of you taking the time to link your beautiful projects at my party every week.
So, lets get started!

You can link up any posts that are home decor, gardening, crafting, painting, sewing, cooking or DIY related. 
NO Etsy shops or link parties, please.  And although there is really no other rules to join, I would love if you start following my blog.
 
Have fun!

IMPROVING SLOWLY


I don't think any of us will soon forget the last seven days.
It has been the biggest "roller-coaster ride" of our lives.

 Everything that could go wrong during a delivery, went wrong! From our DIL having a severe allergic reaction to the epidural she was given and going into liver failure, to our little grandson having to be brought into this world in a hurry through an emergency C-Section during which he acquired a very dangerous, and fatal in many cases, 
blood infection that caused him to develop meningitis.

It has been a touch and go situation for several days and nights, and although our little guy is still in the ICU, things are finally turning around and all his blood work as of yesterday is normal. He has been taken off the oxygen and all the other machines that he has been hooked to for several days now and he is acting like a normal newborn.

Meet baby J, our precious grandson!
Born March 12th. 8 lbs. 3 oz. 21inches long.
We took this picture last night before we left the NICU.


Mom is also doing very well.
She was discharged on Sunday and recovering very quickly from the whole ordeal.

Thank you all so much for all the comments you have left me in the last few days. 
Your words of encouragement and prayers just mean the world to me. Thank you, dear friends!

I don't know when I will be able to be back to blogging.
Right now I am on "grandma duty" :)
Big hug, everyone!

SPRING WREATH


With everything happening in the last few days, my decorating and crafting time has come to a halt. :)

I am enjoying all the craziness that happens when three siblings get together after thirteen months of not seeing each other. The house is just full of laughter, while they catch up on the lost time while they were apart.
My husband and I just look at each other across the room and smile.

It is a good thing last week I put together a bit of Spring decor for my front porch.
It isn't much and I used just a few things I already had.

NEW AREA RUGS


Hello, friends!
I hope your week is going well.

Let me tell you, I love area rugs, but I have to say I think I am the worst person in the world when it comes 
to making decisions on which ones to buy. 

I am a visual person, I have to actually see it in the room to decide if I like it or not.
Plus rugs can be pricey and it is not something you can replace everyday, so I want to make the right choice.
You understand my dilemma, right? :)

And for those reasons, our home has been pretty much "rug-less" for a long time, six years to be exact. LOL
Until last week, when I finally decided it was time to take the plunge.
My husband and I went out looking for a rug for our home library and one for the front entrance hall and instead, 
we came home with these.

DROP CLOTH STENCILED BABY PILLOW


It is so hard to believe that in about three weeks or less, we will be grandparents.
It seems it was just the other day we were raising our kids, we don't even feel like we are that old. :)

We are super excited to welcome this little guy into this world and we have done everything in our power 
to help our kids get ready for this huge event in their lives.
They just don't know what's coming! LOL

All the necessities have been bought and now, little by little, I am making some pretty things for my grandson.
Of course, if you know me by now, you know I had to make him a cute pillow. :)
It is probably the first of many to come!

SPRING CRAFTS USING DOLLAR TREE ITEMS (PART 2)


Happy Friday!
It is a very cold day in Texas today.
We have been in the mid 70's about every day in February and today we are in the low 30's. 
Go figure!

But I am not letting this cold front get in my way of starting to decorate for Spring. 
I have already done a couple of items for my front porch, but it is not quite finished yet.
As we wait for the cold weather to go away, here is a little inspiration on some Spring crafts 
you can be making meanwhile.
