Spring is getting closer but everything still looks so drab so I did a bit of shopping to brighten up our kitchen table and our bedroom! The best part is that I was able to double my savings that day with a special sale and coupons.
I purchased these Fiesta table mats and I love how the colors say Spring and how they brighten up the wood table:
And the new comforter set:
I'm not drinking tea today but I did make a teacup for T day:
this great site for creating origami projects and love to try something out once in awhile. I have already done lotus blooms, butterflies and foxes. Try something yourself! My only advice is to make sure the paper you use is thin.
This cup is the perfect size to hold a gift card or ATC as you can see here:
Last Tuesday I mentioned a night out with a friend to see a live taping and show with Ryan Kelly of Celtic Thunder. Some of you kindly asked about it so here are a few pics from that evening. It was a long but awesome night!!! This was the third time I had the opportunity to meet up with him. Since this was a small gathering there was plenty of time for some of us to chat with Ryan at length (lucky me:). I mostly talked with him about the original songs he wrote for his latest solo CD, and about our shared love for animals. Ryan is just the kindest, most genuine person and he truly appreciates his fans.
He signed my official CT sweat jacket,
and his latest solo CD :)
My hubby says I am now an official "Thunderhead" which is what they call the Celtic Thunder fans. He's not far behind though as he loves their music and meeting up with them as much as I do-well, almost (wink).
I'll be stopping by for a "T" break with you and our wonderful hostess Elizabeth.
Oh, thought I'd mention- it will be not just my birthday this coming Saturday (the 15th) but also my 2 year blogiversary so I will have a special post up announcing three giveaways!
