Good Monday Morning.  I have a little post today.  I am so happy today that the sun is shining and I actually heard the birds singing this morning.  That is a good sign that maybe Spring is on it's way here in Chicago!!! I can only hope!!!


I went out to Urban Farmgirls shop in Rockford over the week end. I love visiting with Mary and seeing all her wonderful finds and treasures she is selling in her shop.  I picked up a couple of cute things to share with you.


I found this great little chalk board sign and had a nice chippy frame at home for it.

I just loved the saying on this sign.  You can visit Mary's shop if you live in the area or you can visit her blog to see other signs and beautiful treasures in her shop.  http://urbanfarmgirlandco.blogspot.com/




I also found this cute little bunny at Home Goods for Easter.  He had a cute face and a shabby little tissue scarf around his neck.  I just loved him when I saw him on the shelf.  I think it was his sweet face that drew me to him.  I am excited to start to decorate with some Easter decor.  He is getting me motivated to begin.

I also found this lovely red cross pillow at Mary's shop.  I thought it would be so cute with my old vintage doctors bag and my little vintage Raggedy Ann Nurse.

Hope your week is starting out to be a good one. Thanks for coming by.

  1. Kris,
    What wonderful treasures. I love the Red cross items:) For some reason raggedy ann always makes me smile and yours is just adorable. Here in Michigan another ice storm is predicted for tonight, wonder if you will get it too? No spring in sight here yet, and I am itching to start gardening! Loved seeing all your treasures today and am sharing them on my FB page....

  2. The saying on the chalkboard is SO TRUE! Is it permanent on there or did you draw it yourself?
    Loving the cute bunny. I think it is time for me to go to our HomeSense, which is similar to your HomeGoods. I believe they are owned by the same 'umbrella' company. I was thinking of getting out my birds for display, but maybe bunnies would be good, too for a change.

    1. Hi Lady Pamela,
      The chalk boards are permanent on poster type board. I framed this one with an old frame I already had. Mary had a lot of other cute sayings with different lettering. I just really loved the saying on this one. I hope you can find a cute bunny at your Home Sense store. If it is like Home Goods you should.

  3. Love your chalkboard sign, Kris, and that bunny is just too cute! I may have to see if I can't get one of those bunnies before they sell out. Hoping to get some Spring and Easter decorating done this week. I feel like it's time!

    1. I just found this cute bunny this past week so I am sure you will find one too. They had a couple of different ones to chose from. I liked this little guy with his cute tissue collar and sweet face. Happy Hunting for your bunny!

  4. Another lovely post. I will be visiting your friend Mary's site; her shop looks wonderful :)
    I love that little nurse rag doll . . . I am making a doll for my granddaughter's birthday, that is very similar to yours. Did you make her?
    Have a wonderful week.
    Your blogging sister, Connie :)

  5. I've never had the chance to visit Mary's shop but hope I will someday. The sign is so cute! I love your bunny! It's hard to hold back on decorating for spring, but with snow on the ground it seems a little silly! At least it's sunny! :)

    XO,

    1. Hi Jane,
      You must go to Mary's shop it is really cute. It is a hike out there but if you go on a Thursday when she first opens you can get alot of cute treasures. She is only open certain weekends so check out her website for the days she is open and if you can go on a Thursday. Have a great week.

  6. What a cute little bunny face Kris... Luv the sign, very true saying :-)
    I have a rather cloudy day, but I am being serenaded by birdsong today. They are all around and singing very loudly and sweetly.
    Thanks for sharing your treasures.
    Hugs, Gee

  7. You had a successful shopping trip! I'm loving the red cross pillow and you've found the perfect spot to display it.

    I've seen lots of birds around, so spring can't be that far off. I hope.

  14. Just catching up on my blog reading...the chalkboard sign looks great! And do I spy a set of beautiful opera chairs under that pillow?? I am a little obsessed with those! :o)

    Thank you for making the trip to the shop, it is always great to see your smiling face! Hope you had good luck (or at least fun!) at the other shops I pointed you to!
