Little Changes in the Living Room

I decide to change up the curtain in the living room...BEFORE is Above

Sorry about the quality of the photo, lots of sunlight, so I changed the curtains, have them hanging outside of the window instead of inside the window frame and like how they look and added the metal piece above the window. The cabinet  between the chairs is a "new" to me piece and holds lots of "stuff:!

I'm gathering "Stuff" for the garage sale next month! I didn't have my spring one, too much going on. I hope the fall one will be successful so I don't have to donate a lot of leftovers!

State Fair starts next week and hubby enjoys going and having some "fair food" and I being the "good wife" will go with him and enjoy some fair food too! LOL!

Happy weekend,

MORE Vintage finds!

At the shop last weekend it was there anniversary sale and I bought this "crossed-eyed" bluebird wall pocket. Too funny! She will go in my craft room. 25% off from that dealer.

Nice button card find. Super cheap. I will have to decide which ones will stay and which ones will go to the shops.

Cuteness for Fall for the shops. Time to pull out the fall things and change around the booths.

Just a few vintage greeting cards that I love to collect.

I sure love it when the estate sales are AWESOME and have vintage goodies.  It is getting harder and harder to find Good Olde stuff!

It is raining very hard tonight and some areas will be flooded. We are fine. High and dry, thankfully!

Not much going on. Working on the family room clean up, pricing things for the booths and I am going to have a garage sale in Sept! I have seen a few leaves already turning color...

Keep cool,

AWESOME Fall Finds!

That estate sale I went to a couple of weeks ago was pretty fabulous! So many treasures that I love! These velvet pumpkins are staying at my house...they were 50 cents each! SCORE!

More fall finds that will probably end up at the booths...

More fall finds...I did a little "digging" and found these treasures :) also probably heading to the booths...

These awesome and I believe VINTAGE Halloween nut cups were at the bottom of a bin and got them for ONE DOLLAR for all of them! These will be added to my collection!  I don't have a big Halloween collection. I keep the "cuter" side of Halloween.

That estate sale had decorations for every season. It was an AWESOME estate sale!

Stinkin Hot & Humid here with the mosquitoes eating us alive. The poor doggies come inside with a skeeter sucking away on their nose!  :(

Grandgirl didn't want to go to the movie with me last week.  :(  Hoping to take her shopping tomorrow to buy an outfit for school, unless she cancels on me.  I buy her an outfit (or 2) for school every year. She is my One and Only, so I can spoil her if she lets me!

Update on the baby cardinals:  Sweet Pea "knew" that something was going on in that bush and "nature" took over...there are NO baby birds in the nest...BAD happened too quickly and we didn't see her "do it".  Boy dog came into the house with "something" in his was a sad day :(

keep cool,

AWESOME Estate Sale Finds

I went to a really great estate sale on Saturday! Prices were good, and so many things to buy. Of course all the other people thought so too! I had to act fast...aka...GRAB real fast! I adore vintage Christmas cards and was very happy to find a small box of them :)

I bought these stickers on Sunday. A grocery tote FULL at $3.50 of the entire box. It took me about an hour or so to go through and decide which ones to keep!

These treasure I bought on Saturday. The little birds are Lefton and it looks like they have little holly wreaths on their heads :)

This is a" Frosty" the Snowman stuffed toy and he was only $2.00 on Sunday!  That is what they called him at the sale.  SCORE! I haven't tried to look him up on the internet.  More photos to come! More Christmas, linens, and fall!

On a sad note...the cardinal nest is empty.  Sweet Pea somehow got into the bush where the nest was. She heard the babies now there are no more baby cardinals  :(  

Keep cool...can you believe July is almost over! Don't the days fly bye!!!

New Wheels & Baby Cardinals

Mama has a new set of wheels :)  we found this Jeep Liberty, 2012 that fit our "budget" and has room to haul treasures! I have the best hubby :)

Sweet Pea has been "staking" the bush outside the family room we did some snooping and found this nest of baby cardinals. I've seen the mom & dad flying around the yard and now I know why. They are a tad ugly right now. I will update you with more photos. We had baby chickadees and now cardinals! Hooray!

The heat index today was 110, pretty HOT & Humid! Not complaining, just saying :)
Happy weekend and have some summer FUN!

Vignette for the Coffee table

This vignette is on my coffee table...the piece on the left is a flower unique and I love the green "fish" bowl. The fish vase is a recent purchase. I wish I was at the beach

Nothing too exciting going on around here...puppies need a bath tonight, so I'm off to wash the dog.

Cards, $10.00 bag & Family photo

I was with my BFF last week and we made some cards. I really enjoy card making and next week a blogging buddy is coming over to make cards with me! I will be sure to do a post. She is a wonderful card maker :)

We went to another AWESOME estate sale this past weekend. Hubby bought a set of lawyer bookcases for his toy collection. One of these days I will show you his collection. Above is a $10.00 bag. Whatever fits in the bag goes!

 This is what I had in the $10.00 bag...the tin canisters are in tough shape. I figured I paid less than a dollar per item.

These are from the same sale, but at full price :)  The estate sale was of a former antique dealer and there were real antiques there! It was a good sale. Happy that hubby had the day off!

This is one of the photos from Mom's 80th birthday party. I won't show you my entire family as per their privacy! I might use this photo for Christmas cards. Grandgirl wore very tall shoes. She is about 5' 6" or so!

Confession: I haven't started cleaning up the family room. Today grandgirl and I cleaned out the linen closet and a couple of kitchen cabinets. The family room is over whelming for me right now

I hope you are enjoying these summer days!
