But during that time online I find a LOT of cool things! So I thought why not start sharing some of my finds here with you all!! There are a LOT of gorgeous prim homes and many have pictures of their homes in online albums. I thought it would be fun to share some of the ones I've run across here. Please feel free to leave comments about what you see or if you have ideas!
The first home tour I want to share has been a long time favorite of mine! I've met Stacee at a few markets, she's a really sweet person and has such a beautiful home.
So grab a cup off coffee on this COLD WINDY day and click here to view her album.
After you finish drooling over the home tour, how about a craft project?
Jill, of Fruit of her Hands has posted an online tutorial on making waxed eggs.
What a GREAT prim project, just in time for easter!
Here is her online tutorial
See how cute these look!

If you have a passion for roosters, like we do, decorating with roosters makes for a colorful, fun country look that's really something to crow about. Roosters can be the theme in any room, but is most often seen in the kitchen. The shop is filled with many rooster items and styles to choose from, but I thought I'd share some of the new rooster items that have recently come in that any rooster enthusiast would LOVE! Everything from plates, mugs, and pitchers, to dish towels, hooks, salt and pepper shakers and prints, large and small roosters and everything in between! (click the pictures for more detail)

Makes a cute gift packaged many different ways. I put mine in celo bags, with ribbon tied around it. You could also put them in a cute tin, box or even an antique cup & saucer.
1 pound of white chocolate, chopped
1 pound of bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 box of peppermint candy canes (11-12oz)
1/2 tsp. pure peppermint oil
Break up peppermint candy canes in a plastic bag, setting aside 1/4 of the pieces.
Next melt the bittersweet chocolate until all pieces are smooth, then add in 1/4 tsp. of peppermint oil.
Pour onto a cookie sheet pan that has been lined with wax paper and spread evenly. Chill approximately one hour.
Now melt the white chocolate until all pieces are smooth, add 1/4 tsp. of peppermint oil and 3/4 of the the peppermint pieces.
Spread the white chocolate over the dark chocolate use a spatula and spread to the edge of the pan.
Sprinkle the top with the remaining peppermint pieces. Chill until hardened (about 4 hours or overnight) then break apart into bite size pieces and serve or package into gifts. Will keep in fridge for 5-6 weeks.
