These two I picked up at an estate sale and they are staying with me. They are heavy and bought at a home with "nice" treasures. At some point I'll try looking them up and see what info I can find out about them. These are my Easter cards for the monthly swap that I do at the local scrapbook store. I was
working on them on Friday. Below is the after and I only have 6 more to make. I cut out each tiny bunny and "pop" it on the card. I also "color" each flower and the eggs. It takes a little time for each card. I do love to color and of course there is "glitter" on each card.

This stash of magazine I bought on Saturday. 41 magazines for... only....$1.00 TOTAL...

Fun type writer to sell at HQ in April. Do you notice the different shaped keys?!

Nice suit cases and other treasures. Do you see the suite case that says B.E.N.? I'm keeping that one. It's real cool and the inside is very clean. Handy to keep "stuff" in and organized!
Today was AWESOME.... daughter and Granddaughter went to church with me. I'm praying that daughter, son, and hubby make a decision to accept Jesus in their lives. The church I attend has the BEST music and while singing today, daughter started to cry and then I'm crying. I could feel God's love and believe that she did also. It was wonderful and a blessing. Another seed planted in her heart:) After church we went to McD's for a quick bite and then to the grocery store. She needed some food and didn't have enough money...(that's another story). Dropped them off and hubby and I went to antique store and brought more items out to sell. After that we went to BIL's retirement party. He is 54 and retired from the Fire Dept. He was a Fire Captain.
Also this weekend I got out my Spray Paint and started to change the color on a few items. The sun was out and the temps were great...for here anyway!!!
It's amazing how the sunshine and warmer temps can make a person feel so much BETTER!!!
I know there were more blessings...however I can't think of them now. The computer takes hours to up load the photos and it's now 12 AM Monday off to bed and I'll have to visit you later today....after I get my 8 hours of beauty sleep. :) LOL
Thankful and blessed....
Deb :)

Deb, your weekend certainly was filled with blessings!

The Lord is working on your daughter's heart? Just keep praying for her...that's all we can do for our unsaved loved ones.

Your Easter cards are beautiful but take so much work! It's a good thing you don't mind the coloring part. I have to say I would enjoy that part too though. I always loved to color as a child.

I hope you have a wonderful Monday and a great week ahead of you!

Great score on the older Victorian magazines...they are petty collectible!

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

It sounds like you had a really wonderful day! The music at my church brought tears to my eyes too today. What a blessed way to start the day!

I can't believe you got all of those magazines for only $1! Wow!

Stay Cozy,

Sher said...

You had a busy day, Gal! I'll put your family on my prayer list and ask the Lord for an avenue that they will follow to Him.

I love your cards; it's easy to see that you put a lot of work and heart into all of them.


Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...


Sounds like a weekend filled with so many of our Lrd's Blessings.
I am praying for you sweet daughter. She will be fine as she has you in her life. She is so blessed to have a good Christian Mothers fine example and love to follow after.
Your cards are so beautiful. I wish we lived near each other so we could make cards together. I know we would have so much fun. Have a beautiful week...m..


Oh how I love to hear about blessings! I was very blessed as well.

Are we praying for son a good job?

Blessings, blessings, blessings,

Great treasure hunting! I found several pieces of lefton this week including a hand vase. I spent less then 5 bucks on all my treasures and skipped home happy.

My friend saw what I got and said she wanted to go with me next time and then we decided that wouldn't be a good idea because we would fight over who got to buy what.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

As a magazine freak, I am envious of your mags. for only $1. Good ones too! Your easter cards are so pretty. You really did have a perfect day. So glad you were so blessed! Twyla

Hi Deb... Loved seeing some of the neat treasures you found... hope you'll let us know what you find out about the busts. Those were cool-looking keys on the typewriter, and I loved the hat box! Also, lucky you to find more of those pretty satin lingerie boxes... But the Victoria Magazines for a buck ~ wooohooo! Deal of the weekend!! I'm sure I'm not the only majorly-jealous Victoria Magazine Lover out there!!

Loved those Sweet Easter cards... I love to color, and still keep crayons 'n coloring books in the house... it's relaxing... I was delighted to hear about your wonderful day at Church with your daughter ~hugs~ I know how happy that made you... I'm glad that God is putting blessings in your life each day ♥

Looking forward to seeing what you've been spray painting! Hope your Monday is terrific...
God bless...

~hugs 'n prayers~

Hi Sis ~ I'm so glad your daughter went with you to church...that's a good sign! scored big time with those magazines! I have so many right now that I need to go through...ahhh..if I only had the time!

Linda said...

Great finds! I'd have a hard time parting with any of these neat items. All those wonderful (Victoria is a favorite of mine) magazines for $1...I'd love to find sales like you. Hugs, Linda

Sue said...

I am praying for the same thing for my daughter...I KNOW how you feel...

You are one of the ladies I was thinking about when I posted my last blog post about "1/2 price day at Goodwill". I had a ball.

I will be praying for your family. I told my daughter if I knew for sure she was on her way to heaven and living for the Lord, I would be able to breathe again...

Queenie's Vintage Finds and Treasures said...

Hey Deb!
What great finds you got this week. I'd be keeping those statues too....those are so neat looking. I've always liked the way those look when I see them in magazines. Speaking of magazines.... OMGosh at that stash of them that you got for a dollar....I love to run across those...I've lucked up a couple of times like that. I bet you've had the most fun looking through those! I have a dark turquoise blue type writer similar to the one you found. My dad gave it to me years ago. I hope to someday have a desk to display it on. The cards you made sure are precious Deb! The different colored eggs are so much fun to do, I bet. Isn't this the funnest time of the year?! I'm so glad to hear that warmer sunnier days have been coming your way...they do make us feel better for sure.
What a great day that you had with your daughter and grandaughter. It doesn't get any better than a day spent with the ones we love.
I hope you have a great week!
Big Hugs,

Angie said...

Great treasures, and I am so happy for you that your weather is warming up so you can paint again. It still has to warm another 15-20 degrees before I can spray paint, I have a couple of projects waiting.

Blessed me to hear about your daughter!!!!

Your things are always so pretty. You did a great job on those Easter cards, they are very pretty. Glad you had a good time with your daughter. My son when in high school had a royal typewriter just like that one and he really liked it. Hope your family has a great week.

Joy said...

Cute easter cards! You got a great deal on those mags too.

Vintage Rose Collections said...

Hi Deb,
You certainly have interesting photos and I am going to go back and take a second look. I wanted to post that link up above this for you to look at. It is a link to someone selling a Roman miniature bust and thought it might give you some ideas.
God bless you Deb,

Nelly said...

Oh! I'm so jealous of your Victoria stash. So love that mag. Wow!!
