Oliver turns five

I know a lot of you have followed Oliver growing up since he was born, hard to believe he turns five today. It just seems like yesterday when he came early at 27 weeks, all 1 lb, 14 ozs, he is s a happy, heathy kid that loves school, a rich blessing in our life.
We also had our March of Dimes walk this past Saturday, we started our family team right after Oliver was born, something we do every year, walk for babies, they do so much for babies.
Oliver getting ready for his 2 and a half mile ride that morning.
Oliver with my oldest son, Justin on the left and my youngest son Chris, Oliver's dad, we had a great morning, nice cool walk around the lake, thank you for all the prayers and emails I received over the years as we watched Oliver grow up happy and healthy. Vicky

Every season I like moving things around and adding in my seasonal items, here are a few things I have finished, still pushing furniture around, love how it makes the house fresh and new looking. Love the bittersweet cabinet in the hall, very narrow hall, just fits perfect, just picked up the sign, one of my favorite things to collect.
This arrangement is on top of a wardrobe in my sewing room, rearranged the whole room, just found the old blue gray pantry box.
Area at end of hall, perfect spot for a spring display.
Area in my bedroom on top of my pie safe, love the blues and Browns together. Going to be doing more work in here, making new curtains adding in more mustard tones.

Area in my sewing room, love this bittersweet color shelf, perfect for this small area. Love the caramel color I painted the walls, nice warm tone, will share more as I get things in place, enjoy your Spring, Vicky
