Stay-cation Week

Hubby was home this week, staycation, and I made this delicious meal...recipe below.

Hubby had a birthday. We went to a few antique shops during the week, estate sale today and the "TO DO" list wasn't touched! Oh well! We also ate out a few times.

I started Bible Study Fellowship this week. This year we are studying the Book of John. You can go to the link and find a group in your area! It is international, non-denominational, and a very good study!

Fall is here. The temps are cooler, the leaves are beginning to change, the sun is setting earlier and I can feel fall in the air!

Fall Fun & Catching Up

I bought some baby boos at a local grocery store. They are so much fun to use for fall decorating :)

I just love this little owl and I did find another one!

October will be a pumpkin mantle...I had to "peek" into my pumpkin tote...happiness :)

Busy week with my son's birthday and then my daughter's  and hubby's is next week.

Had the garage sale last week. Oliva, fellow blogger, stopped by. It wasn't the best garage sale that we have had.

I will be starting  Bible Study Fellowship at a local church, on Thursday afternoons. It is a wonderful study, open to everyone. This year the study is JOHN. I would encourage you to find one in your area

Fall is in the air!!!

Fall mantle: Squirrels and Owls, oh my

Decided to decorate the mantle for fall and came up with this: Squirrels & Owls! LOL!  These guys have names, Nutsy, Chunk & Sassy! It is official, more than 3 is a collection!

Here it is and the banner is from a swap from Shirley a couple of years ago. She is an artist in my mind! Next month the mantle will be loaded with pumpkins and a couple vintage Halloween pieces.

I am going to have my garage sale on Thursday.  LOTS of treasures will be for sale for those of you who live in the area! 9-5!!!

The weather has been wonderful!! I love days like these. I love how God made seasons, of which Fall is my FAVORITE!

Have you started decorating for fall?

This weekends Treasures

Hubby had the week off of work, so we had a "stay-cation". We went to the state fair, ate out a few times :), and of course we went to a FEW estate sales. All the photos are treasures we found Friday-Sunday.  We also bought a small table, lawyers bookcase, and Free chairs. I rarely take photos of furniture.

I always look for hankies and Valentines.

Folding rulers sell as well as baby ben clocks even if they don't work! The round rocks in the wood bowl are crystal rocks. I may try to crack one open.  Vintage Red Owl is fun to find.

Time to find Christmas goodies. The elf's should sell quickly. The brush bottle tree is vintage and could be missing some of it's ornaments.

Small mirrors are good sellers. Pretty sure these brush bottle tree's aren't too old.

My son will be 37 on Tuesday. I will be making ribs, coleslaw, cornbread muffins, beans and Mom is making the angel food chocolate toffee cake, which we all LOVE!

I can smell fall in the air this week. I know many of us LOVE FALL!  Sept is a few days away.

Enjoy these last weeks of summer!

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,
