time for tulips

This past week has been our spring break.  
It rained, it snowed, and it was cold.
We did have a few days of sunshine, so that made it a little better.
The feisty juniors and I have cleaned out closets, painted walls, thrift shopped, 
cooked meals together, and today we will be baking cupcakes.

While running errands yesterday, I picked up some pretty pink tulips.
One little thing I like to do for myself is buy fresh flowers.  
For around $5, I can have beautiful flowers that will last a week, sometimes two.
Flowers just make me happy!

These tulips were just too pretty not to photograph.
I wanted to do something different, not just place them in a vase.
So instead, I placed them on top of the woodpile 
and inside a rusty wheelbarrow.
I also placed them on my barn wood table next to something really adorable...
milk glass!
My sister-in-law just sent me the cutest milk glass container.
She found it while thrifting and thought I would like it...I LOVE it!!!
Thank you for thinking of me:)
I guess the milk glass container she found will be the Friday Frugal Find this week!
Don't you just love a bargain...especially an adorable one like she found?
Happy Weekend Everyone!
