An Easter Meme For A Good Cause

Shelly from This Eclectic Life made me do it, but don't panic cuz I won't "make" you do anything you don't want to do. But... read along and see if you want to participate because it's for a good cause and it won't cost you a dime(-:
You see, for every blogger who participates in the Hershey’s Better Basket Blog Hop a $10 donation is given to the Children’s Miracle Network. That’s worth doing, isn’t it? I mean, You can ensure that a donation is given to a worthy cause without spending a dime of your own money!

I’m supposed to give a “Virtual Easter Basket” to the people I tag. Shelly gave me this basket so I am passing it along to share with you! Look at all those yummy chocolate eggs!!! I love Hershey's chocolate(-: Easter Bunnies are a favorite of mine. I hope you enjoy them too!

Here are the Rules we are supposed to copy on our blogs:

* Copy and paste these rules to your blog post.
* Create a blog post giving a virtual Easter Basket to another blogger – you can give as many Virtual Baskets as you want.
* Link back to person who gave you an Easter Basket.
* Let each person you are giving a Virtual Easter Basket know you have given them a Basket.
* Leave your link at comment section. You can also find the official rules of this #betterbasket blog hop, and more information about Better Basket with Hershey’s there.
* Hershey’s is donating $10 per each blog participating to the Better Basket Blog Hop to Children’s Miracle Network (up to total of $5,000 by blog posts written by April 4th, 2010).
* Please note that only one blog post by each blog url will count towards the donation.

If you post for this meme, let me know in the comment section, and I’ll add you as a link on this post.
Thanks for playing along!

Amaryllis Blooming

O.K. here it is. I must say I am not that impressed with them. I guess I was expecting a lot bigger flowers. These are pretty average sized nothing out of the ordinary. My other bulb has a few leaves and a bud coming up. I will take a picture when it blooms! I received the bulbs from...
White Flower Farm.

Mosaic Mirror

I made this mirror this weekend to go above my sink.(-: It is made out of an old window frame. I cut up a few glass mirrors to use for this project. I had some of those 12X12 inch tiles you get for crafts, weddings, candles etc. I used GE Silicone Glue to glue the mirror pieces down. I always use GE Silicone Glue. I like it and its easy to use(-: Clean up can be a little tricky so its best to be careful when applying it so it doesn't get all over the place(-: A little dab goes a long way(-: I used black sanded grout to finish it off. The window frame was as is. Chippy, peeling and perfect!!!(-:

I am kinda back

Been a longggggggggg week!!! Thanks for all your concerns re: my finger!!!!! Its been a nasty mess but I think I am finally on the mend!!! It was not MRSA but another bacterial infection called Haemophilus. The skin has peeled off of the area where it was swelled leaving a "burn" type area. I still can't type with that finger so I just use my index finger or ring finger on that hand to type. I can still type fairly fast cuz I am use to being messed up from my lawnmower accident 5+ years ago. I could always write with my left hand too so that has helped me a lot. I am just hating being laid up and not working outside in the garden!!!! Anyhooooo stay tuned for my later post for Fertilizer Friday! I am waiting for the sunshine so I can get out and take a few pictures of some things blooming around here today(-: Might be cloudy pictures instead!!!! Have a great day and don't forget to check back in a while(-:
