Spring is almost here, and I can't wait!  One reason I love spring is *flowers*  :D

My Happy List

1.   Have any of you tried Drew Barrymore's new make-up line Flower?  It's available at WalMart, and I love the products I've tried so far.  LOVE the lipstick, eye shadow, and blush. Shelley likes the nail polish, too.  The make-up is highly pigmented (which I love) so a little goes a long way!  Gorgeous and affordable make-up makes this mama of two girls very happy!

I tried the blush shown on the right and I *heart* it.

2.   Sweet Emily sent me this pretty Valentine's Day card.  It is *so* me. Thoughtful friends make me so, so happy!!!

3.   I love it when Mr. Art @ Home reads my blog and follows instructions  ;P Here are my Valentine's Day flowers:

Pinkilicous flowers make me so happy!  ;P

4.   Speaking of pinkilicious, some of you thought I wouldn't do it.  Some of you thought I didn't have it in me, that I wasn't crazy bold enough to do it, but I did it.  Yep!  I painted our kitchen island ballet slipper pink!

Pink makes me happy!

5.   SO HAPPY to almost have the kitchen completely *done*  {more later}

What's making you happy this week?  Link-up and share your *happy*

Until next time...

  5. Oh, I am so excited for your kitchen. *squeal* Love the color you used for the paint. I also noticed your knobs on the cabinets. LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!!

    Mr. Art@Home did a great job with the flowers. I have not tried Drew Barrymore's line yet, but you have peeked my interest.

  6. Hi Ricki Jill,
    Reading this post this morning has made me very happy. The perfect flowers, your new pink island, the Mackenzie-Childs pieces you collect!

    Love and Hugs,

  7. Oh you're teasing us with those kitchen snaps. I'm loving pink, always have. Hope we get to see more of your kitchen. Second to yellow, pink is my favorite color! You made me happy today RJ, to know I made you happy sending you a card. Thank you for sharing the pink Valentine's Day card. What beautiful flowers from MAAH! Such pretty pinks.
    Enjoy your day..........

  8. Your hubby sure knows the way to your heart! I love the island and that you totally went for it. Can't wait to see the whole kitchen!


  9. Hey I like ballet slippers :).. so the subtle pink is nice! And the flowers are gorgeous. Now I want to go hunt down this make-up to see what it's all about!

  10. I love your decorated pieces with pinks and blues. Your kitchen counter tops and floor look great. Can't wait to see more too! Thanks sweet Ricky for hosting. Have a nice week.

  11. I LOVE the pink! Can't wait to see the whole thing!

  12. Can't wait to see more of your kitchen. The pink looks delightful! Love your gorgeous cut flowers too!

  13. Hi Ricki Jill,
    YOU'VE BEEN TAGGED! There is a game going around that lets you reveal a few things about yourself, and I picked you as one of the ones to play the game (you can check it out on my lastest post). If you don't want to participate, that's OK. I just needed to pick a few sweet blogfriends to join in the fun.

    Your Valentine flowers are so pretty, and thoughtful friends make me happy too. Although, they are few and far between hehe. Happy Tuesday, Ricki Jill!

  14. Ricki Jill,
    Flowers are making me happy right now, we've had a taste of spring and I'm in the mood to work in the garden.
    Can't wait to see more of your newly restyled kitchen.

  15. Love the look of that card very pretty and it would be so me as well...........I didn't know Drew had a make up line but I guess it doesn't matter as I have more make up then you can shake a stick

  16. I love all of your pretty pinks! I would love to try that make up and I just got home from Walmart...I'm not going back! haha! Love your happy list this week!

  17. I laughed when you said that your happy because Mr. Art @ Home followed your instruction. You are just so blessed to have an obedient husband :)

    Glad to see back in the blogosphere

  18. Loving the ballet pink kitchen. It must be such a relief to have that project behind you. Where did you get your cabinet knobs and drawer pulls?

    Also love your pinkilicious flowers for Valentine's Day. So sweet.

  19. Love your flowers. Mr. Art pays attention! Got to love that. I'm loving the pink breakfast bar, from what we can see, you tease! Can't wait to see more. So glad the project is almost "done"!!

  20. OH MY GOSH!!! A pink island? Should they ever be any other color again? I think not!!!! Oh, and makeup? What's that? Are there plenty of instructions on each box?
