4th of July vignettes & finds

Just in time for the 4th of July...I put up a couple of vignettes today. One of the table and one in the box window. I love the little red children's rain boots.

Sorry for the poor photo. It is very hard to get a good photo. We are going to a friend's house on Sunday for a BBQ for an early 4th gathering. Maybe this year we will stay up to watch some fireworks, maybe!

I went to a good digger sale on Thursday and then back on Saturday and found the Christmas goodies in the attic. Maybe I'll find the "O" or just sell the others. Someone may need the other letters.

Also found these awesome seals in a drawer. I haven't seen letters or number seals before.

I hope you have a safe and fun 4th!

HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!  How blessed we are to live in the USA!

Recent Treasure Finds

It was a pretty good weekend finding treasures between estate sales, garage sales & the monthly shops and the thrift store.

many things were bought! The teacups are from a garage sale and the thrift store. They sell at both shops.

Aren't these mini's sweet :)  A couple of them are marked USA.

Hoping these Red Rock cola bottles will sell for the 4th of July look!

I see that "fish" items are big on instagram...I'll see how they sell at the shops.

The elephant planter is USA. Variety is always good!

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes for Mom's 80th...we had a photographer come and take a Family photo. She wanted that for her birthday gift. Hoping to see the photos next week.

The heat & humidity are gone and it's a wonderful summer day! So thankful! I think grandgirl and I are going to see "Dory" this week. Did you see the moon last night! It was beautiful!!

Peonies, Mom's Birthday & Treasures

Middle sister gave these beautiful peonies to Mom for her birthday. I just had to take a photo.

Her is the Birthday girl! Everyone was here, 23 of us and we had a photographer take a family photo. We also had champagne. Yes, that is a Chocolate Raspberry Diva cake with buttercream frosting! Pretty sure Mom had a good time and enjoyed her party.

A few years ago we bought over 100 vintage radios. I was digging around and found this cute little one that is staying here, for now. It is a tube radio and only gets AM.

Decided to put most of my bluebird plates on this little bookcase, for now :)

My grandgirl is coming over tomorrow and we are going to get the family room clutter free! I know that I have said that MANY times before....this is our summer project. She wanted to make some money this summer, so this works out for both of us.

I appreciate your kind, sweet comments about my new deck!

Mantle & new "Floating" Deck

I finally changed the mantle. I wasn't in the mood to do anything with it. Having mom's birthday party here on Saturday, the mantle needed to be decorated.

I have the  BEST EVER HUBBY! He built this 12 x 16 deck for me!

It only took him a few days to make it. I "helped" a little! Thank you BEST HUBBY IN THE WORLD!

Down the road there will be latices around the bottom. I have a lovely view of the golf course. If the weather isn't too hot & humid on Saturday, we will be enjoying the new deck!  It's called a "floating" deck. FYI! LOL!

Happy weekend!

Fairy garden,treasure finds & funny puppy

I bought this already made fairy garden at an estate sale. I will hang it outside and add a few more little treasures to it.

More finds. Enamel bowls and vintage soap holder. Going to the booths. (unless someone wants to buy direct!)

He is a funny boy when he sleeps. He is on his back and his tiny tongue is out. LOL

These are my garage sale finds from Thursday.

Hubby is building me a floating deck and thinks he'll be done by next Saturday and that is when Mom's 80th birthday party. I will certainly show you the finished deck. He is the best!

New Dining room table & chairs

I have been thinking I wanted a different table for the small dining area and this one I found this week at an estate sale. It came with 6 chairs too. I already had 3 of the pressed back chairs. I;m mixing and matching for now. This table is 30" x 60" and I can fit 8.

  It is a trestle table. I pulled up an old rug from the storage area for now. It needs to be cleaned.

Aha, my pretty peonies are blooming. They are my favorite flower.

Tomorrow we are going to the Trader's Market not far from us and maybe there will be more treasures to buy.

4 Days of Treasure Hunting

I love it when the bridal bushes bloom. Such pretty little flowers put a smile on my face. Hubby took a week off and we did some treasure hunting! Much fun!!! On day we went to Stillwater, MN and had lunch by the waterfront and of course "treasure hunting". It was a nice day with my hubby and a nice way to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

This is just a few of the Fisher Price toys that were bought to re-sell as well as the mantle mirror. We went to estate sales, antiques stores and a couple of garage sales. The Toys sign is added to hubby's collection of toys!

We bought more treasures than you see in all the photos...Oh Oh!!! The Boston terrier door stop is staying for awhile. I think the dog looks crabby!

Yes, more Valentines!! Dick & Jane was fun "shopping".

Yes, pyrex for the booth. I may have paid a little too much for this set. Still hoping to make a few dollars on it. Mint condition.

The plates are for tea parties and will be added to my growing collection. The tea cup is Avon. I like that it has a dark hair lady on it. There are more treasures that I didn't show you. A few more Fisher Price pieces, a crock, and a couple of things that are gifts.

We had a fun few days treasure hunting. Now it's time to "work":  price, tag and bring the treasures to the booths. I'd rather "shop"! LOL!!

I hope you all have a great week. Spring is here in Minnesota! Hooray!
