{Happy, Happy, Happy)

Remember the song....If you're happy and you know it say Amen...If you're happy and you know it say Amen....If you're happy and you know it then your face will surely show it, if you're happy and you know it say Amen!


These lovely flower arrangements was freshly picked out of my yard and made such pretty table pieces for a few days....and it made me HAPPY!


I just love the smell of gardenia's.



 Done a little thrifting...and that ALWAYS makes me happy! First stop produced this little batch of goodies....Scale, decanter and 5 white linen napkins!


 And of course you know I just happened to find a tea cup and saucer!



And I just might have to make a Sunflower cake.....


 Ooh...loved these...found 8 of them.


And you cannot imagine how excited I was when I found these cute flipflop spreaders!!!
Our ladies ministry team will be having a "Flipflops, Friends and Fellowship" social in a few weeks and I will be using these cuties....Or maybe they might wind up being a giveaway....




Don't think I done too bad girls with my stash of goodies.....especially since I spent a whole $11.75! MY KIND OF SHOPPING!

 Snapped a few pictures of my grandgirl Mallory Grace. She loves her some ball so we captured some cute shots of her.













So much fun photographing this little beauty.She sure makes this Nana happy!



I hope that in the midst of so much craziness in this world that something has made you Happy




 Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  2. Cindy, your granddaughter is beautiful! I love that she's pretty but spunky too. That's the best package. :)

    Your flowers are gorgeous. I just love this time of year when we can go out in the yard and pick our own arrangements.

    Thanks so much for your sweet comment about my patio and pond. We love it.

    1. Stacey, Mallory is what we call our well-rounded gal. She can dress up and be fancy, play ball and deer hunt with her daddy and papa and never miss a beat! LOL!

    1. Connie, the grands know that Nana is going to snap a picture so whether they like it or not their picture gets taken. (LOL) Yep, I may have to do a sunflower cake now that I have that cute pan!

  11. Oh Cindy! I so enjoyed a glimpse of all your celebrations! A friend of mine taught on the biblical principle of "celebration" once and it has stayed with me all these years. I believe there is power in celebrating goodness and beauty with an innocent heart motivated by a love of God and His good gifts. Your blog captures that spirit perfectly! Delightful visiting, milady!
    Joy!

  17. Lots of fabulous finds, Lady! Your flowers are so pretty and I love that pitcher. Is the first arrangement in an old ice bucket? The one with the bail? Your grandgirl's photos are terrific!! You should be the team photographer! Have a blessed week, Cindy, and enjoy the summer weather!

    1. Awe...so good to hear from you today. I think of you so often. No it's not an ice bucket but sorta looks like one. YES, I love that pitcher too. I don't use it often but when I do I get the most compliments on it. It doesn't hold enough tea for my bunch. LOL! But it sure is pretty. On the TEAM pictures....Mercy...It takes all I've got to keep up with the grandbabies pictures! LOL! Thanks for your sweet words today.
