There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose

Happy Sunday, friends! Hope your weekend has been great so far!
My weekend project has been painting my new craft room and  assembling the furniture. I can't wait to craft away with everything in one spot! Pics coming soon! :)

The old lady is baaaack! I was SO THRILLED when I saw the newest Old Lady book, 
Now there is one for every season! YAY!
This newest version doesn't disappoint - it is precious! May be one of favorites...or maybe it is just all the candy hearts and PINK! HA! 

Click on the pics below to check my newest Old Lady unit, 
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose!

This unit includes:

*Sequencing cards {both color and black and white} and printable

*Alphabetical order printable

*Swallow a Simile writing printables {2 versions}

*Nifty Nonfiction writing printables {chocolate and roses}

*Vowel Sort Word Work {Long and short vowels} cards and printable

*Roll and Graph cards and printable

*Lovebug Glyph {with patterns, color display page and black and white explanation page for kiddos to glue on back on glyph}

I will email three peeps a copy of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose on Tuesday, January 29. If you have already purchased this unit, I will gladly email you another of my units if you win the giveaway! Simply comment with your email address to enter! 

I leave you with a pic of my latest Pinterest recipe experiment - DELISH!
I am a BIG fan of danish {really pastries in general}... just plain old Cream Cheese Danish - no fruit for me, thank you very much!
Who needs fruit when there is warm creamy cream cheese goodness?!? I didn't even add the top drizzle - they were perfect just they way they are! 
Thank you Food Lush for the recipe! :)
I had everything in my fridge and pantry and it took about 10 minutes to make - perfect for a Sunday morning before church!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!! :)

Hi, Kelli! I just wanted to let you know that I'm mentioning your "Old Lady" post on my blog. I say "Share the love!" :) I've also put up some freebies that you might like for that book as well.

Take care!

I rarely comment, however i did some searching and wound up
here "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose".
And I do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind.

Is it simply me or does it look as if like some of
the remarks look like they are coming from brain dead people?

:-P And, if you are writing at additional social sites, I
would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Could you list of every one of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
