Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. Eskimo proverb

TuEsDays DispLay ChaiN..EasTer BasKeTs & PeNNY RuG PiLLoWs

Hello there, Well I thought I would get in on Misi's display chain..I don't do normal easter baskets because i don't have any or the room for them..I just added some fun things to this trencher and called it good..
I added some carrots and a terracotta pot to this mix..
I love this basket..I just tossed in some of my italian glass eggs to this one..
I love this little garage sale basket..its on my blanket crane..I should toss in some forsythia sticks or flowers for spring..will have to add that to my list..
I added my apples to this box that I purchased from a fellow crafter..oranges are on top in a bowl..nothing to do with baskets..just changing stuff up a bit..
I finished up this pillow..just need to stitch around the sides and add some wording in that blank area and then stuff it.;)
this one is all finished and will be going up on my etsy site shortly.;) I am having so much fun with next one is going to be a log cabin with numbers..maybe a flag to go with it..
I had some questions from my newest followers..Blessed country girl asked about links for food here you go..The place that I got my food storage in the photos shown is Shelf relience. this is, be, if you know any LDS (mormons) in your area..ask if there is a food cannery near by and sign up to go and do is alot of fun..a friend from church mentioned for fresh beans.
We talked about this in our church and they gave us some lists of other places to go for bulk foods..
Costco: bulk supplies to store or can
wal-mart: cost effective supplies to store
the dollar store: cost effective way to get non perishable supplies, shampoo, soaps, first aid, feminine products, toothbrushes, and paste deodorant, shaving supplies etc.
craigslist: pressure canners, dehydrators, water barrels, food saver with jar sealers etc.
ebay: canners, dehydrators etc.

these are just some places to help you get started...holy cow..we are getting a downpour of rain all of a that came out of no where..well I hope you all have a great day..:)
