Cards, Finds & Jeanne Update

 On Tuesday, Erica and Tammy came over and we made cards!!! Above are the ones we made and below are the ones I made the next day as I was in the card making grove! LOL!!! The seed cards are copies of the original seed packets that I have in my little collection...oops, I see candy and someones hand!!

 It's fun to make cards :)

On Monday I worked my duty day. At this shop, when people come in to SELL their goodies you can buy them! The dealers who arrive first in the morning, get first choice. I was working with 2 guy and I was the 2nd dealer in, SO, these are my duty day purchases! ALL for $23.00 !!! SCORE...they are from 2 different sellers. I got over 60 Hankies for $4.00!!! I've washed them and will iron them soon! I've been neglectful in adding new things to the booths!! I'm keeping the reindeer tin and a couple teacups. 

We looked into the bluebird nest and there are "5" eggs!!! Hooray!!! Can't wait for 5 baby bluebirds!

Went to visit Jeanne today at the hospital. Her speech is better than I expected :) It has affected her right side. Later today she was going to be transferred to "rehab" for a week or so! THANK YOU SO MUCH for your Prayers! God heard and is answering! She is having "double" vision and keeps her eyes shut most of the time. The doctors think this will go away...praying so!

Hubby and I went to a couple estate sales today. Busy day and ready to relax! I hope your weekend is Joyful!!  Thankful for your friendship!


p.s. Marge, the ferns that we got from your homestead last summer and growing beautifully and you met Jeanne at the garage sale last summer.

Tea Party Tables

There were 25 tables set for the Tea Party on Saturday. I'm showing just a few :)   The one above is the table that I set. My favors, the teacup coaster, were made by Stephanie at the Enchanting Rose. It is fun to see how the tables were set. Unique to that person. Sorry, I didn't take photos of all of the tables. I was busy helping.

It was a nice day and went well. Almost 200 ladies/children. Yummy foods that were served by the men. A woman from my church spoke, there was a fashion show of costumes from different countries and a harp player! I hope those who attended were blessed!

Erica and Tammy were over today and we made some post!

p.s. My BFF went in for knee surgery today and ended up having a stroke...please pray for a complete recovery for her. Of course the surgery is postponed for awhile. She is in ICU. Her hubby said that the doctors are expecting a good recovery...however, I praying for a complete recovery and no side affects! Thank you so much!! Her name is Jeanne...

A Little Gardening & Old House Charm

 Since it was a Perfect Spring day, I did a little "gardening"...I received these sweet purple pansies for my birthday and decided they would be great in this old birdbath that has seen better days. We have glued it a couple of times!!  I have 3 other birdbaths for the birds to use.

 I am hoping that the bluebird will make a nest in the house I have out for them. They keep checking it out, but I don't think they are nesting in it...  :(

 I know it is a funny angle, but I wanted you to see the cool stairway in the awesome Old House that I was in on Friday! 

 Very cool door knob! I SO WANT THIS!!! It would be a Perfect addition to my collection. However, I don't see that happening.... We didn't work in the basement on Friday. Worked upstairs in closets and window bench seats, finding some treasures that the family will keep.

This photo is taken at the old house. Just beautiful flowering trees. I have no idea on what kind they are. I just had to take a photo!!!

Hubby and I went to 3 estate sales this morning and then worked in the yard...

This weeks schedule, (LOL)  Monday: duty day, Tuesday: give blood and get tea things ready for the church tea party on Saturday, Wednesday: I may meet with a friend, Thursday: fellowship/sharing day at Bible Study Fellowship, Friday: preparing for tea party, set table, help make food, etc...Saturday: Tea Party!

Poor sister was in pain on Wednesday when I visited her...we went to a quilt shop and I picked out fabric for a quilt that she is making me for my 60th birthday. We probably should have stayed at her home.

I hope you all have a enjoyable weekend!!

"Shabby" Sunroom & Chit-chat

 Before the party, the "sun room" (aka breezeway) had to get cleaned up and de-cluttered from it being a winter storage room...Top photo with the table & chairs is the  wall against the dining room with a door next to it.  The photo with the sofa against the wall, that door goes to the garage. I have little white lights wrapped in fabric. It is soft and romantic in the evening with the lights on. 

 This view faces west. The door in the middle isn't used and ONE day will be replaced as I want to make the sun room into a huge dining room!!! The golf course is across the street.

This view is east and faces the back yard. "When" the room is transformed, this will have a sliding patio door. I have No idea when the transformation will happen. Until then, it is a sun room to relax and people watch.

I added the white sheers to make cozy and more private.

Tomorrow I'm having a day with baby sister. I can't remember it I told you: the doctor removed all the cancer and will reattach her rectum probably in May. She will have 4 months of chemo and then should be totally cancer free. She had rectal cancer...I know that I didn't mention it before as I wasn't sure if she was okay with me telling you.

Thursday is Bible Study Fellowship. This fall the study will be the Book Of Revelation. I am so looking forward to that study. For information go here:  This study is for everyone. Won't hurt to check it out !

Friday I am helping a friend get a home ready for an estate sale. It is an 100 year old home with the "creepy" basement. We will be working in the basement with the cob webs and lots of stuff!!!  I'll try to remember to take photos. It is a grand old home!!


The flowers are still looking good :)
