Friday Five

Happy Friday!

Today I am preparing my house to host a Minecraft Day tomorrow.  This means four people with computers will take over my livingroom/kitchen to play minecraft all day.  They'll have fun but it will be loud, so I'm thinking of a place of escape!

1. Did I ever show you the necklace Emma made me?  All my grands names in order, but I'll have to get a bigger one in June, when Nate and Kay's baby arrives!

2. I bought this darling mailbox before Christmas at Hobby Lobby.  It was 50% off!  I've been wanting a cute mail box for year now.  I just need to decide if I'm going to hang it inside or use it outside the house in some way!

3. I bought this cute pillow with black and white buffalo check on it before Thanksgiving and I'm still using it.  Its always in season to be Thankful, right?

 4. Happy Accident - This crate was returned after being used for a wedding, and when Kyle and I cleared the deck this week, I stuck the lanterns on the crate.  I actually like the way they look there and just might keep it for a while, though I did put that handle down!

5. Yesterday at Christmas Tree Shops I found these string lights in the clearance section.  They are normally $9.99 a package!  I bought three!  There are 10 lights per string.  I know right where I am planning to use them, and I'll show you next week!

Happy Weekend!


  1. I love your necklace!! You could end up with a very long pendant as the years go by. :)

    Aren't "happy accidents" fun?! The crate and lanterns look great together. Looking forward to seeing what you do with your lights. (Christmas Tree Shops is such a great place!)

  2. What pretty, pretty things you have today them all!

  3. Oh, all your treasures are great, but that necklace is wonderful. Have I already forgotten that a new baby is on the way? My short-term memory is shot and so is my short-term memory. 🥴

  4. Happy Weekend to you too! Love those string lights and can't wait to see what you do with them:) The pillow is perfect, love the black and white all year and YES Thankful is always what we need to be. Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!
