Moms should know

We all love receiving good tips. Whether it's about hair and makeup, a good book, or a great vacation spot, people like being in the know. So, I decided to create this section for moms called "Moms should know". It's just my suggestion of great things that I love that I think you might like too! There's all kinds of cute and cool things on the market that I wish someone would have told me about. Today's "Moms should Know" is about a great dvd personality that my kids absolutely LOVE but few moms have heard of. If you have toddlers-1st graders, then Miss Patty cake is for you! I had seen her videos in Lifeway stores, but was always got distracted. Then one day during an after Christmas sale I saw it for half off and I'm SO glad I bought it! Miss Pattycake is a mixture of a modern-day Mary Poppins meets Raggedy Ann with songs and stories that kids LOVE. Both of my sons learned all of the songs and the lessons that she teaches are as fun as they are relevant. You just have to try her link for yourself. I love finding new things for my kids and this was a win/win. It would be especially good for a Sunday school or Pre-K class.Through entertainment, you can pretty much teach your children anything.....Just a thought, but a Lovely one.

Show and Tell Friday: My Valentine

It's that time of year: Valentine's is upon us! I must say that I love this time of year and find all sorts of ways to celebrate. Usually the boys send cards to the grandparents, and I call up ALL of my friends and wish them happy valentines day. Of course the Hubby and I spend quality time, but through the years that he and to work, or we couldn't find a sitter, we enjoyed spending the day with the kids. My parents always made us feel special. My dad was still buying me giant cards and chocolate hearts bigger than me when I was in college! That showed me that how you can make it a special day for anyone.It's a Love day for all. Anywhoo, this week I'll show you guys my pink tree! Gosh, I love it. Pink AND hearts, how could you not love that combination? Most of the decorations I bought from Hobby Lobby and walmart, but I purchased the tree from Big Lots after Christmas. Thanks to Cindy's Show and Tell Fridays. Make sure to check out what all of the other Ladies are doing. Have a  Great V-day weekend, and remember God is love and that's something EVERYONE can celebrate!

*I tried to post this on show and tell last week, but accidently entered my link in the wrong way.Hope you ladies don't mind  a little pink  tree, even if it is late. Have a great day!

Show and Tell Friday: My Gorgeous, vintage mirror

This week For Cindy's Show and Tell Friday's I decided to show this Awesome vintage mirror that I found for only $15.00! It's a really nice size, and the detailing is GORGEOUS! It has two candle holders on each side. I have to do a little touch up work to it, but it's going to be amazing with my curtains, remember the ones here. It's quite heavy so I'm waiting to buy heavy duty screws. These are one of those times when I wish I had a stud-finder! I also saw a beautiful Oriental console that would compliment it brillantly, but alas it was not on sale(no where near a sales price....te he) Perhaps another day, another blessing....Just a thought, but for right now, my mirror is a Lovely one.

I've been thinking it could work in my bedroom OR the living room. I bought it for the entryway, but it's so pretty, I'm finding it hard to share! and wouldn't it look great painted white? Let me know what you think....
