Randomness & Thankful Monday...

I love vintage chenille bedspreads...I just wish they would fit our bed! My mom suprised me with two that use to be my Great Grandmas!

They are in perfect shape and super soft!! My mom thinks the floral one will be perfect for a "baby poot" room someday...and I have to agree!

I bought the cutest headband and New York & Co this weekend.

Now I am inspired to come up with some new creations.

My kitties refuse to wear the crocheted hat I made them so it is now being worn by Aggie Mae, my Blythe.

Does anyone know if there is a good site for Blythe Dolls. I would love to learn how to make her face "matte" and she is in desperate need of a haircut but I am afraid to do anything! Also she is in need of some new clothes. I love looking at Etsy but if there are any other sites that you know of... I would love to know about them. I am kind of new to the Blythe world.

Baba did get a new collar, but it wasn't very "girly". Kerry made her the cutest little flower to make her feel more like the princess that she "thinks" she is.

I have almost completed my first row of colors in my ripple afghan. I decided to add an off white to it as well. That is my next color to add!

Today I am thankful for:

*a clean house
*Puffs Plus with Lotion
*dinner parties with dear friends
*red lipstick (I have finally tried it and LOVE it!!)
*meal planning (it saves me so much time and stops me from eating out)
*Poots Winter Break...tonigt is his last night of freedom! He heads back for classes tomorrow
*suprises...for my birthday and Valentine's Day!!! I am trying to find out
*green tea (I am going to try and drink more of it and less Dr. Pepper)
*fun coworkers
*chapstick (I think I am addicted)

I am going to go put on my comfies and craft on the couch! Poot and I are going to watch a movie and enjoy a bowl of pumpkin pudding. Yummmm!!

What are you thankful for today?
