Random Tuesday....It's spring!!!! Woot!!!

Hey!!  It is Random time!!  Woot!  Woot!  Hop on board and share some Random yourself!!  'Tis fun and there are a lot of people on this train who are just as crazy eager to share their randomness with the bloggy world!!  I mean!! Check out Keely at The there is some serious Random!!  Ha!!

So...first let us cover some business here!!  My CSN drawing!! We have a winner!!  Woot!!  Number 14 was the number and that lucky person is Ellen from The Stuff from Ellen's Head!!  That is so cool and congrats Ellen!

I have contacted you sweetie and just waiting for your response so that I can send you your coupon code!  I won a $40.00 CSN coupon/gift certificate myself a couple of weeks back!  How exciting is that!?  Thank you Jill Shepherd!  

I ordered a new coffee table and a rug for my guest bathroom!!  I know...more than the $40.00!!   But I needed it...really!!!  Been looking and looking and found it on CSN!!! 

My pic isn't that good...not enough light...but you get the drift!!

Here is CSN's pic!!!

This is the set...I just purchased the coffee table.  Love it!!  Thanks CSN!!!

Everyone, including Dr. John and I, were excited about the Super Moon!!  We couldn't wait until it arrived...we even took pics the day before...Ha!  Not a one of them turned out!  Just couldn't get the camera's to cooperate!  Sigh!  Here are some of our attempts!!  Don't laugh now...

I know...pathetic!  But you have to admit...very interesting!  I mean...seriously!!

Well, it is officially spring now...whew!!  We made it!!  But I have to say, I am still cold!!!  It has been really windy and that wind is really cold!!!   Anyway, I can unveil my Spring/Easter tree and my Mantel!!   Here they are...trumpets sounding here.....

Along with the coming of spring...I have been spring cleaning/organizing!!  The entire house!!  Bathrooms included!  And all the "stuff" that I didn't want in the house...ended up in my studio!!  Argh!!!  So this week, I have to tackle that!  I have already boxed up and took a truck load to my storage unit last weekend and this is what I have left to do...

I know....anyone want to come and help???  Free coffee and snacks!!  Anyone????  Sigh!!  I will show pics next week of my progress!  That ought to light the fire under my a$$ to get this done!!!

As you know, I just got back from a week in are some more art/sculpture photos!!

That is a wide variety in Randomness. I like the art piece a lot, very colorful and seems to be full of life. Lovely post.

Congrats to Ellen. Yay.
I so like the spring tree. When my kids were young we decorated a tree for different seasons and the kids made things to hang on the tree.
You are already doing spring cleaning and organizing? You must have energy to spare. Pass some to me please. The piece of art you purchased is full of love and sweetness. No wonder you wanted it in your home.

Happy Spring, SueAnn !

Love the Julie Ann Bowden painting !!!! Just beautiful !
Have a great rest of the week !

SandyCarlson said...

I hear you about the stuff. I have a box of matches that I am always tempted to use around spring cleaning time. But no. There is always a use..

Lynette Killam said...

Happy Spring, SueAnn! And thanks for this juicy selection of your Spring Tree and the sculptures, and your new art purchase is just stunning! I wouldn't be able to resist it either!

Loved all of your random-ness my Sandia Park Goddess! Spring has sprung at hour house but it seems to be delayed at mine. I am tired of cold rainy days. Wish my bathroom was big enough for a coffee table. I'm really hoping you meant bedroom but I would not be surprised if you meant bathroom. Actually, wish my house was big enough for a coffee table. hee hee I missed the moon - too cloudy over my house, so thanks for sharing your pix.

And thanks for visiting my little corner of the world. You always make me smile.

Love your moon pics. It was raining here :( so we couldn't really see anything. And I think I have sewing machine envy, tee, hee. Not that I know how to sew, ha! Not yet anyway. I am working on it tho.
Hugs darlin' great post.

First of, getting a good picture of the moon? that is something professionals struggles with! So yours is grate!

You must have a large guest bathroom if you manage to put a coffee table in it.

Fun to see glimpses of your studio.

Interesting sculpture park.

Julie-Ann Bowden make lots os sweet art, congrats to you on a new piece in your collection!
