Valentine Posey

Well, I have spent the last few days cleaning up.  My kids had a 3 day weekend from school, and needless to say...things got out of place, even though we spent most of the weekend out of the house doing things like bowling, shopping and ice skating.  I did not ice skate though, I grew up in Florida where we had rollerskating rinks, plus I have broken my left ankle 5 times and since I have never been on a pair of ice skates, it would just be asking for trouble.  So, I stayed on the other side of the window nice and warm eating french fries!!

I have to show you what I received in the mail today.  I LOVE Raggedy Ann (vintage Raggedy Ann), and have a little room full of old Raggedy Ann things like, jewelry, cards, banks, ornaments, dolls, books, curtains, blankets.....anyway..its bad, I should really weed some of it out. I will have to post some pictures of all of it.  Anyway, I contacted Diane from Saturdayfinds to see if she could make me a Valentine Posey using a few of my old Raggedy Ann Valentine cards and stickers, and here it is:

I LOVE it....is it not the cutest, and she had 2 Raggedy Ann hang tags tucked inside of it. You have to look closely to see all the goodies on it.  Plus she also sent me a goodie bag filled with lots of great things.  Such a sweetie, Thank You So Much. 

Hopefully next week, I will post some pictures of some more Easter crafts.  They were kinda put on hold this week, I voluntered a few days at my youngest kids school and I think I am one of those obsessive compulsive people because I cannot do anything unless the house is clean.  I dont mean it has to be spotless, but it has to be straight.  I live in a tiny house with hubby, 3 kids and a black lab  (and only 1 bathroom mind you), so I dont have room for clutter.  Therefore once the kids are off to school I cant leave the house until the dishes are done, beds are made, tables cleaned off, etc. because I dont want to have to come home and deal with a mess.  And, now that it is 10pm here and they are all in bed, its time to clean up from the nightly routine of homework, bookbags packed, lunch bags put out, clothes picked out....Okay, I am outta here for now....Have a good night!!!!

I love your new pocket and all the goodies!  I have never tried ice skating.  I could barely roller skate as a kid!
