Scrappy yard sale haul and Spectrum Noir storage

 Hello friends!
 Last Saturday as I was running around trying to get ready for our Easter celebration, I ran across a couple of garage sales. So of course I had to stop and see what treasures where there waiting for me. Now mind you, this was later in the morning, around 11:30ish, so my expectations were not high. However, i was most pleasantly surprised! I came upon a table filled with these yummy laces and yardage of the perfect shabby chic blue yardage of material......love all these colors and textures. I'd say there are close to 5- yards of ribbon and 2 yards of fabric and all it cost me was $3.00! I was practically giddy thinking of all the things I could do with these treasure!

Then, right next door there was another sale...I love 2 for 1's! There I found this very unique Spectrum Noir marker storage.
It's original use was as a counter top humidor in a cigar shop! This is the front, the part that would be facing the customer on the counter.

This is the back. I took off the door, just unscrewed the hinges. The door was attached at the bottom and latched at the top where you see the little gold piece. I wanted it to always be open so I can just grab what i need. The little cubbies are just the perfect size and I'm thrilled! This cost me $5.00.
I find the most wonderful embellishments at yard and tag sales.
What's the best scrappy thing you've found while out searching for treasures? I'd love to hear!
I made a video on this haul if you'd like to peek!
 Also, I just got in a large Prima order...there are a lot of Fairy Belle items and different 6 x 6 pads etc....go check it out! Oh, also, I have some Spectrum Noirs in stock as well, just came in yesterday!

Easter at the Christensen's

  Hello Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We sure did!
 My boys are 13 and 16, but still do the egg hunt. I think they are just doing it so they don't break their Momma's heart! ....and because we do money eggs lol
My youngest Kevin.....can never get a good picture of this kid!


My oldest Brendan protecting his goodies from our 2 naughty dogs

Brendan and his basket

                         My handsome husband and Kevin counting eggs
 Kenny laughing because they are both counting and saying different numbers..

   In the afternoon we had family and friends over to grill, swim and enjoy the day. I always do a HUGE egghunt with hundreds of eggs in the backyard....but sadly all the kids are getting too big...it really does break my heart! Happily I still have nieces that are young so we get to continue the tradition. I got the teenagers to play along by hiding $1.00 in 10 of the eggs. I thought this was a wonderful idea....until I saw those knuckleheads cracking open the eggs and looking for the money, then throwing them back when there wasn't any lol. That's okay! That just left more eggs for the little ones.
                    Trevor and Kevin looking for eggs in the backyard.
                        Brooke found a way to carry her extra eggs lol
                       She is so Pretty!.....and she's sweet too! (my niece)
 My sister in law Robin stealing Brooke's candy...notice the bulging cheek?lol
                                My Nephew Cole hopin' for some $$$
 Trevor, my youngests "brother by another mother" and Kevin they have been best buds since before they can remember...I consider him one of mine!
 Brendan is my oldest baby.....makes me want to cry thinking that he'll be off to school in a couple short years!
 Kennedy my niece and my mom Jeannie searching through the eggs.
 
 I hope you all had as wonderful of a day as we did!
