Hello, hello, hello, and a very happy Thursday to you all!!!  And happy St. Patty's Day!!!

Did you all notice the very first label added on my side bar there on the right?!!!  Yes, believe it, I'm participating in a blog hop!!!  I've really wanted to do this and, although I was asked before I had to decline due to timing issues; however, I am thrilled to have been offered another opportunity!  How fun!

This is an Easter Blog Hop sponsored by our one and only Rhonda, and all the fun starts at her place on April 15.  The line-up of amazing talents participanting is listed beneath the Blog Hop label on my sidebar.  Of course, I'll have a little "candy" to sweeten the tooth of one (or maybe two) of the lucky hoppers hopping on over here, so I hope you'll all stay tuned.  I'll be reminding you before the date arrives, and I do hope you'll all join us aboard the Easter Blog Hop train.

And, yet, another believe it or not -- the weather here in Chicago will reach almost 70 degrees today, so I'm grabbing Buster and we're headed out to enjoy the day!!!  The high temp is only predicted for today and I don't want to miss a drop of it after the harsh winter we've head!  An early spring day to enjoy -- gotta have it!!!  So, this may be my only post for today!!!  I want to bask in the day as long as it lasts!  LOL!

Oh, a couple of you asked about my vase and how I did it, so my next post will be a really quick tutorial/instruction on how I did it.  This project is so easy and fast -- 5 to 10 minutes tops -- it'll be a really short post.  I mentioned in my comment post last evening that I didn't have any specific technique for doing this,  I was only playing, so I'm surprised at the results myself.   So one thing for sure is each one will be different and unique!  And I'm sure you'll all add something of your own to give it your unique touch!  You won't believe just how easy it is!!!  Believe it or not!!!

Well, I'm out to enjoy 70 degrees!!!  Hope you have a great day too!!!

Love you all!
