Sorry been MIA and a bit of Easter/Spring candy.

Sorry I have been a bit absent in blogland this week but we have been traveling around visiting family. Last night we arrived at Dads in NC. waking this morning it was a dull cloudy day just promising rain....
Here is a pic of the old barn with some damage to the front of the roof from the storms last weekend. I just love this old building because it has so much character and texture. I photograph it everytime we visit.



And of course there are brilliant flowers popping all over the garden. I spotted this by the back of the house.




And last but not least the infamous humming birds that grace us with their presense every day. I never tire of sitting on the front porch watchin them swoosh about. At times they are right in front of your face it is so amazing and beautiful.




Later it turned out to be a beautiful day. I was out and about collecting some of the necessities I need to bring back home with me and a few goodies too. After that we stoped for some lunch too. I am hoping to catch up on some blog reading tonight. Tomorrow we head to my brothers to see the new baby! I am so excited I cannot wait to hold him and pich those adorable little cheeks!. I have a whole box of goodies for him including the quilt I made. Oh how I wish it was already tomorrow....


Ok, now for the blog candy. I am putting together a huge pack of goodies with a Spring/Easter theme for my blog candy. I will leave it open until the end of the month and all you have to do is visit and comment to get an entry. If you are a follower or become one you wil get another. I am sorry I did not get to take a photo of all of it before heading on holiday. the only bit I did photograph was a set of stamps from Woodware I will be including in it. The rest of the candy will include tons of fab 12X12 papers, Stickers, Ribbons/Lace and whatever other fun stuff i may pick up along the way. I will post a pic when I return next week of the entire lot together but it will be a nice package trust me.


So don't forget to enter for my candy.


Now I am off to do a little maintenance on my computer and then leave a little blog love to some of the blogs I follow. I hope you have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping in for a visit.

Fabulous pics Angela, the type you will treasure always.
We have friends in Garden Grove CA, I remember sitting in their living room and watching the humming birds come right onto the balcony to feed, I managed to get some great photos of them.
Thanks for the chance of some great blog candy.
Have fun.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
