Meeting a Blogger and Finds..

See this sweet box wrapped with a pretty hankie and ribbon?! It's from Ann, a blogger that I met today at HQ. She and her lovely family shopped there today and she gave my FAVORITE candy from my FAVORITE candy store and this pretty hankie. She also loves hankies and vintage treasures :) How on earth did she know??!!!

THANK YOU, ANN! It was a "treat" to meet you, and I hope we will see each other again. Please visit Ann's blog: http://protectorofvintage.blogspot.com/ ...I'm sure that she would enjoy meeting you too!!! That was a little blessing for me today.

These are finds from the thrift store on Thursday with Kailee. Just love the little Scottie dog linen with it's happy little face. The white seal is Kailee's buy along with the sea shell, flag
and little flower pot. She insists that I take photos of her things to show you on my blog :)


Yes...Christmas and Thanksgiving postcards at 1.00 each from a garage sale...SCORE!!!



more finds....
A tree branch fell on top of the hood of my Jeep Friday from the rain and winds...have appt on Monday to see how much that will cost to repair. Hubby is having a MAJOR car problem and he isn't in a good mood...car problems suck...oops....
At least the weather is AWESOME...sure feels like Fall and I just might start my Fall decorating tomorrow...
That's all for now...
Warmly,
Deb :)

Hi Deb!
How exciting you got to meet Ann and what a sweetheart to bring you such a wonderful gift. Of course I focused on the chocolate!! :) Great finds, love the scottie dog linen...too cute and Kailee is becoming quite the thrifty shopper :)
Bummer about your jeep :(
I'm with you, I can't wait until FALL!! We are still having temps around 100. I have already bought a few fall decorations and can't wait to put them all out :)
Have a great weekend,
Toni

Hi, Deb! I've never met another blogger in person. i'd probably be so nervous that I'd throw up! Ha!

Looks like you got some pretty floral boxes! I can't pass those up.

Tell Kailee that I said that she got some great finds! I used to collect those white baby seals. ☺

Wow, too bad about your jeep. Glad no one was hurt! Glad your weather is awesome. Our weather is getting cooler but still so cloudy and rainy that Fall doesn't sound right yet! ♥

Theresa said...

I am still amazed at the generosity of these blogger friends! Great finds as usual and sorry about the car troubles:( Hang in there! Have a blessed day!

Angela said...

Sorry to read about the vehicles. ((hugs))

Great finds shared here....and such a beautiful blessing from a fellow blogger.

I just put up my video from my Yard Sale Haul last night...

Hi Deb!

Looks like you have had a wonderful summer of awesome finds! The chandelier is incredible! I don't know what I would do. Anything you do to it will be just perfect. It has such a lovely style to it!
And that bench you got for $2... absolutely fabulous!! I also loved the little tea set you found. Oh girl you have had fun!!

It's so much fun meeting a fellow blogger isn't it? I've had so much fun doing that! Each person is so wonderful.

Have a grand and blessed Sunday!

Hugs, sherry

Great finds, especially the postcards! I'm sorry about your car woes. Geez, a tree on your Jeep! Hope that all works out quickly.
I love Ann's blog, and you're so lucky to have met her!

Judy said...

How sweet of Ann to give you the lovely gifts. I love all your finds. I stayed pretty close to home this weekend so no sales. I tried to price and get things ready to take to the booth tomorrow.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

I can't believe you got to meet Ann!!! We just love Ann, she's one of our sweetest blog friends! Also our best etsy customer. I'm sure it was great fun meeting her and I'm glad the two of you got to meet. She is thoughful so I'm not surprised she gave you such a thoughtful gift. As usual you scored in the good finds department! Those embroidered pieces are just precious and you know I'm jealous of the postcards! Good luck with the jeep. Have a wonderful week! Twyla

How nice you got to meet a blogger friend! And she brought you candy and a hankie ... wow, what a good friend. Sorry to hear about you and your hubby's car troubles, they do suck! And it's starting to feel like autumn here, too. I am sitting outside typing this and freezing! Must go find a sweater. Take care, Deb!

Hi Deb,
I am glad you got a sweet surprise. And it is so cute that you show Kailee's treasures too.
Hugs,
Kathy

I have that very same hankie and it is my favorite. I sometimes use it to cover the opening spout of an old glass gallon milk jug. I make it full of lemonade, put the folded hankie over the spout, tie with pretty or simple string and then sit the whole thing down into a galvanized bucket of ice and ice cream salt. People love this and it is and does look pretty and appelling. People will drink themselves sillyh with lemonade. That Ann is a sweetie.

Hope you had a great weekend and save some energy for all the great fall sales coming up.

Fun Finds! You are a super good shopper. I love hankies! I am so intrigued with the ones that have tiny little flowers and designs stitched on them. I gave some sweet hankies to Stacy for herself and to give to her sisters, mom, mother of the bride. They make nice gifts. Next time I will add a little package of chocolate! Hugs, Dogwood

Pearl said...

Hi Deb...
I'm so glad you had a nice meeting with a fellow blogger. And so sweet of her to give you such a kind gift...
Love your recent "finds", and Kailee's too! My favorites are those beautiful covered boxes, the sea shell (of course), the awesome vintage embroidered pieces, and those lovely Holiday post cards... Thanks for always taking photos and sharing them...
Sure was sorry to hear about your car woes, and the branch on your Jeep... just so very thankful that nobody was injured...
Hard to believe that you're having some Fall-like weather already! It's still miserable here... and still lots of days with the temps going over 100 with the heat index... UGH
Hope you're doing well... I think of you every day ♥

~hugs 'n prayers~
Pearl
