First Finds of the New Year

 We went to an estate sale yesterday and they had MANY tea cups & saucers...however...not at the price I wanted to we went today when they were 1/2 off and I picked up a Few!!! The suitcase is from a sale that we went to today...

A few more goodies from today...

I've been finding pyrex bowls lately... not bad finds for the first of the year!

It was 40+ today, so we took the puppies for a little walk. When we got home, bath time for them. They walked in a few puddles :)  It may get into the 40's on Wednesday. So wonderful for the middle of winter!

Off to price the treasures for the booth. I must stay on top of pricing them right away..otherwise they end up in a box, packed away... :)

Making Valentines

 Last week I was into making some Valentines. So, digging into the paper Valentine stash...

 and after playing with my vintage red truck and old cookie cutters....

 I made these. There are more than 1 of was FUN!!!

I think this may be my favorite Valentine. Who doesn't love a bluebird with a little cutie on it! LOL!!!

My sister has 2 or 3 weeks left of chemo and radiation. Please continue prayers for her and the family! Thank you!!! XO

I was thinking that since my sister continues to workout and have her treatments, I better get my butt to the gym. I have no reason not to!!!

I was helping Erica get packages sorted and mailed to "Any Soldier" on Tuesday & Thursday. She will be posting about it soon!!! There were 8 packages going to them and money for a donation. Blogging gals are very generous!  It's heartwarming to know that they will get a little something while they are serving and without the comforts of home and family.

May your day be blessed.

Valentine Mantle & the $10.00 Bag

 This is in the center of the mantle. I love old frames and candy boxes. I have a "few" more, I wanted to put up the red ones this year.

 With Christmas behinds us, it's time to get the Valentine treasures out and up.

These are what FIX INTO my $10.00 bag , both photos, at the last sale we went to, the 3 day sale. I know, I really filled up the bag!!! LOL!!! You can see some of the prices, that I DIDN'T PAY!!  Love deals!!! 

Had my duty day today and there were people in the shop, mainly window shopping.

I made a few Valentine cards yesterday when it was SO COLD! Next week I will be making Valentine crafts for a swap.

I haven't had any candy/chocolate for 10 days and I haven't lost any weight...WHAT IS UP WITH THAT??? Rather frustrating!!! However, I'm not giving in...until Valentines day, Easter and then my birthday!!! LOL!!!

Last Finds for 2014 & Puppies

 Puppies received new blankets at Christmas...

 Before the end of December we went to a nice sale. It was a 3 day sale. We went the first and third day and found many treasures. Lots of pretty hankies...and linens...

Many potholders, china and smalls. On the 3rd day it was bag day and I gathered some plates and lace. What was I thinking. We also bought a mirror, clocks that hubby is fixing and more smalls... all going to the booths.

Grandpuppy got a new bed for Christmas. Just his size. He is so good.

We stayed home on new Year's Eve. Didn't even stay up until midnight! LOL!! I'm wanting to paint the living room this year and my bedroom. I must make a list of "projects"...there are a couple of trees that must be taken down due to disease, hmmm...guess the list might be longer than I thought..

Happy New Year!

Update on Sisters Cancer


 I talked with her this week and her chemo, pill form, will start on Thursday for 6 weeks. Then it is 6 weeks of radiation, I think!! I hope doing the chemo pill will be "easier" on her.  She is very positive. She is also keeping somethings to herself and won't share them. Please pray that her side effects are ZERO and that I can be of support to her and the family. She lives about a hour from me.


I have a duty day at Mainstreet Antiques this Saturday from 10-2 if anyone is in the area shopping! I've been a tad under the weather the last few days. Finally better today and now I need to do my Christmas cards and wrap a few gifts.  Grandgirl is coming over on Monday and we are decorating a gingerbread house. I wasn't sure that she still wanted to do this with me! Makes me happy!

Merry Christmas!
