Recent Finds & Pretty papers


You guys know that I love linens. Bought these at a garage sale. The toy cake carrier I bought at an antique shop for a few dollars. 




Pretty new papers to make cards, one of these days.  I have to be in the "mood" to craft.





Vintage flower seed packets are so cool. I just love the old graphics on them.

The sun has been making an appearance the last couple of days.Hooray! Much yard work to do.

Let's enjoy these spring days. Summer is just around the corner!

Mother's Day Tea party



Come and pick a hat for the tea...there are many to pick from


You can be a Queen in this photo op.  One of the very talented gals made this. The theme was
The Queen's Tea.



This table is lovely with fresh lilacs.


 Vintage luncheon plates were used here!



Pretty blue and white theme here with bluebirds.



Alice in wonderland is the theme at this table.

There were 19 tables this year. Our speaker spoke of how each teacup is unique and has it's own design and style. Just like how God created us. We are also to share our gift of hospitality. Sharing a cup of tea is a perfect way to do that.

I hope you all had a nice Mom's day. I made an egg bake and had brunch here. After we ate, we sat on the deck and enjoyed the afternoon. It was a very nice day.

Which table do you think I set???

This and That



Flowers left over from a funeral at church and I was blessed to bring them home! HAPPY MAY DAY....a few days late!


Next Saturday is the Tea at church. Theme: Tea with the Queen and I made this for the event. I may redo because the word Crown is a tad off.  I will certainly take photos of some of the table settings. There are 19 tables this year. I will be setting only 1 table this time.




Had a work day at the shop and a guy came in to sell some things. I bought these "OLD" pool balls. They MAY be Bakelite. They are kinda fun and I may keep them for awhile.

The weather is finally AWESOME! Of course that means lawn work time :)  I have allergies suddenly...ugh...guess one is never too old to have them.

In a couple of weeks, having my yearly garage sale. If you are in the area, email me and I will give you all the details!

Tea Cup Swap Reveal



Stephanie from the Enchanting Rose had the annual Tea Cup swap and the lady that sent to me the pretty teacup above and below is MARTHA, from Martha's favorites




The teacup is so pretty and will be used at the spring tea at my church next month. Linens are always a favorite. She also sent a candle, teapot tin, rose plate to hold my treat, teabag holder and bookmark.  Martha has a blog Martha's favorites, and loves teacups. It is so nice to meet gals who enjoy the same things and make a new friend!

THANK YOU, Martha!

and THANK YOU , Sweet STEPHANIE for all the time & hard work you do to make this swap so awesome that over 200 gals joined in! XO

New Looking for the Dining area



I painted the dining area and kitchen the same color of the living room & hallway. Light and bright all through the house.  I love my vintage pieces on the wall.






It's almost Easter, my favorite holiday. I will make ham, cheesy potatoes, veggie and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Eating dinner as daughter works until 6PM on Easter. Are you ready for Easter?

Easter Mantel & a little more



Easter is coming and here is my Easter mantel. This year is super simple. I am going with less and enjoying it. I am doing the study that Bible Study Fellowship offers and it's on John this year. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross for the sins of mankind, (me). It was a HORRIBLE death...



 I did put up my little old stuffed bunny collection. I found a couple more in my boxes after this photo.




Does anyone remember getting cottage cheese in these containers??? I DO!  I loved that as a kid. I have  purchases  these 4 over the years. Sweet memories!

My next post I will show you my dining area makeover.

Handmade Easter Cards


Here are some of the Easter cards that I recently made.  I am slowly decorating for Easter. My mantel will be Easter-fied soon.

 I've  patched the walls in the dining room & kitchen. I was going to paint today, but that didn't happen. I'm waiting for more sunshine and warmer days.

I joined Stephanie's teacup swap. She had over 200 gals sign up! WOW~ !!! The swap is closed now.

Daylight savings starts tonight. I like having the sun up later, not a fan of losing the hour.
