It is hard to stop once you start making them...we made a sweet bouquet of them for a favorite teacher. BTW, I am having a vintage-y giveaway, check it out! Http:meli-melo-art.blogspot.com

I have boys so there is no happy puffy stuff going on around here. Maybe huffing and puffing when I ask them to do anything. Ha! Best wishes for your day. Tammy

Hi Koralee,

I love your sweet pompoms and what fun you must have had making them.
Also all the pretty hearts in your previous post in time for Valentines day.

Have a happy week
Hugs

Oohhhh, those look sweet! Having girl crafting time with daughters makes me so happy. What more could I want?

Thank you as always for your sweet comment. Her little hands do make my heart melt too, but I'm just a wee bit partial. :)

Big hugs to you my friend.

AH! He is wise because no matter what a man tries to do, his women will always find a way to express themselves, NO MATTER WHAT! teehee! I KNOW!

OH KORALEE, you have found a possible domicile? Oooooo, I know you mentioned it a while back that you were nest hunting! I bet you ARE looking for the perfect vintage home, but let me tell you, with your flair and vision, you will be able to make a house with good bones into a home with character. That is exactly what we have been doing for the last....ehem.......14 years!!!!! This addition we just did however, was the biggest thing we have done to it to alter it. The rest has been cosmetic fun stuff and d├ęcor, and you can do it! OH, I cannot wait to see what happens, for I know you will keep us all informed!

My Monday was excellent. I went in with a smile, I did a couple of pirouettes down the hallway for my colleague before the kids came in, and we laughed. It was a blast, and the day went too fast as well. THIS MONTH IS GONNA FLY! I wish you a superb day my dear friend, and may your house hunting result in a happy home!!! BISOUS, Anita

Beautiful, uplifting, joyous. That's why I come here so often. As always, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul.

Magpie's Mumblings said...

He must be a special man indeed - to be surrounded by girls and lots of pink and not complain? He's a rare breed!!

A good thing for "sweetie" and my sweetie to learn. Love pink pom poms, it reminds me of my new pink tutu.

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

Your home must be looking very sweet, the gorgeous garland of hearts by your window and these fluffy lovelies somewhere else... I love love your pompoms, Koralee. Pure happiness! xxx

Hello Koralee,I think your sweetie is also verry happy in the house with your always lovely things and decorations..........x

Bad Taste Toast said...

Haha my boyfriend wouldn't let me decorate our apartment with pink puffs, but they look so cuuuute :D

Heidi said...

I love the hair, I wish mine waved like that...love the pompoms!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Great photo! I so miss having my girl at home...we used to do such fun things!

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Your soft pink theme is so pretty. The poofs and soft marshmallows add smiles to all ~ I agree with Sue {above}... I miss having those all girl moments & projects & movies & baking :o)

I'm using your "hearts in the windows" idea for school ... For the text hearts ~ the students will copy Valentine words, their part of speech and definition {love, caring, kindness etc---a little dictionary work} ... then we will cut out printed hearts from my scrapbook paper {that I have loads of at home} They can also bring in their own to add.

Thank you for these amazing ideas dear ♥
*xoxo*
Maria
