A Bit Of Easter At Mimi's House

Are these the cutest 
The salad plate is oval shaped and is sitting on
a 12" dinner plate.
Mimi got a whole set on close out last year.
They were originally $16.00 EACH.
Sitting down, are you?
She got them for 79 CENTS each.
Yes!  You read that right!

Aren't they cute?
Look at the different colors.
Our Lulu has been here for the week 
on her school's Spring break.
She went home yesterday.
Much of her time was spent loving on her 
new baby cousin, Bright Eyes.
She is a good little "mom".
AND she likes to craft.
So, while baby was being Mama-ized,
Lulu took it upon herself to try those 
I showed the tutorial on here

Mimi did not have any solid colored napkins handy
so Lulu used some paper napkins she had.
She whipped up 8 of these in about 20 minutes flat.
I think she did a great job.
While she was doing that I was laying low.
I caught a cold from CharlesInCharge
So NOT GOOD that I am headed home 
today for the weekend.
Daddy to Bright Eyes will be home 
for the weekend
to help Mimi and I will be back on 
Sunday night.
I need to get a couple good days rest
because I have not held that sweet baby girl
since Monday.
I hope I can sleep like that tonight...
well, maybe NOT in a footed sleeper!
Imagine THAT in MY SIZE!
Yes!  They DO make them in my size...
You can buy one here.
Hmmmm...I don't think that is what 
MyHero meant when he said he
had a DREAM of me 
 dressed in pink nightwear.
Me in THAT nightwear would be a

I will try to make it around to visit 
if I can manage to

I'm glad I had swallowed my coffee when I got down to the last picture. I hope you feel better soon. Sleep lots. Love those napkins and those plates are fabulous.

LuLu did a great job on the napkins. That's so sweet that she spent time enjoying her new cousin on her spring break. MiMi lucked out on the dishes- what a great price! Too bad you caught a bad cold. Rest up and roll yourself up in a pink blanket- it's easier!

the Easter plates are lovely!!!! so cute, you take care of your self, rest up,

Kathy said...

Those plates are wonderful! 79 cents was a steal! I'm going to have to look around and see if I can find something similar. Lulu did a great job with those bunny napkins.

So sorry you still aren't feeling good. Those colds just last and last. i think you should get one of those footies. It would keep you nice and warm. LOL!!

Pam Kessler said...

That big footed sleeper cracks me up! Lulu did a great job on those napkins. We may have a blogger in training!

Lori said...

Lucky you to have your little grands so close by. I would have grabbed those plates too!

Susie said...

Diana, I am hoping you get some rest and start feeling much better. I love the plates and what a buy ! Bless Lulu's heart for helping with the baby. I think she likes it:) That pink sleeper would be good for lounging. LOL. xoxo,Susie

Tete said...

Lulu is growing up too fast! She is such a big help and those bunny napkins are just so cute! Love the eggs plates! Adorable and a bargain. You in a footed sleeper would be hilarious. It would have to have bunny ears and a tail, too. That would be as close as John will ever get to a playboy bunny, he might even be grateful at his age. Hope you feel better. Rest up good and learn to say no. Let SweetCheeks blog for you this weekend!

Katie Clooney said...

That baby girl gets prettier every day! Don't tell SC I said that! Love those cute plates!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Oh no, feel better soon, Diana! I'd love to sleep as soundly and contentedly as that little looks. LuLu did a great job on the napkins. I love the plates, too. Lucky Mimi to get more than one at that clearance price. I saw some cute bunny ones at Hobby Lobby yesterday.

Fairhope Supply Co. said...

Bless you!
Such a sweet crew you have. It sounds a bit chaotic with all the coming and going. A few days of good rest sounds like just what you need!

LOL, Diana you always make me chuckle!! Love the plates!! Have a lovely weekend! Vicki

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

You are a comedy show!

I feel bad that you have a cold but I was still cracking up. I have had one for a few days and sound like a frog. I should go see if there is frog footie pajamas ha ha ha

Those plates are adorable and what a great price / steal! :) Take care and rest up :)

I love those Easter plates! Actually, I love all Easter/Spring decor. It's so refreshing after the Winter time. Looks like Lulu's going to be a great friend to her new cousin. So sweet! And she did such a good job on those napkins! I'm impressed! Have a safe trip home (and back again Sunday night) and here's to hoping your cold vanishes quickly. :)

Bright eyes is a sweet little bundle.
