The Rub Away Winner

summer is on its way yeah! My grape Hyacinths are so pretty and I have several clumps.
 My tulips the squirrels are leaving alone for the minute.
 My thrift find for today was a bag of cookie cutters for 50 cents. I have picked out a few of the favorites but that pig stole my heart. I just love him. they are resting on a book called recipes from the dump, great title isn't it? I have not read it yet but will let you know how I like it.

 I had a lot of right answers to the stainless steel bar. Yes it is used to rub away bad smells from your hands like onion and garlic. Not sure about lobster but when I get some lobster I will give it a try.
 So the winner of the primitive cat is kim at touch of nostalgia email me your information and I will get this sweet cat in the mail.
Because we were so sick for Easter, this Sunday is our make-up Easter. Lots going on. Miss Baby will be spending her first night at Grammies and the whole extended family on Sunday. we will be having the egg hunt and all. The neighbors will think we have really lost it. with the Halloween items in the big window scaring off robins and an Easter egg hunt close to memorial day.
The trees are lime green with the promise of summer to come. I just love this time of year. I hope you are all high and dry, and safe. Thank you for so many responses to the rub away. I got a few emails from new people I would love to respond to let me know if you have a blog.
See you after Easter Make-up with lots of Miss Baby pictures in case you want to avoid the next post:0)

Well I'll be a monkey's uncle (er, aunt). I had no idea what that was for and never even heard about such a thing, let alone seeing one. Learn something new every day.

I remember commenting about this post, about how beautiful your flowers are, thinking the rubaway is for onion smells and loving the primitive cat. I bet you enjoyed sweet time with Miss baby too! Did Blogger erase the comments?
