Weekend Update, This and That

The mantle is a little "thin" and will be changed next weekend for Easter, so I didn't want to put a lot out. In fact Kailee asked me on Thursday..."When are we going to decorate for Easter". She is learning!!!

Daughter sits on the bookcase next to the mantle. Brother is missing..I think he ran away!!

This Beautiful mosaic frame I won from Brook's recent giveaway and she made it!!! Her blog is and I know she would enjoy a visit from you!
I also won an OWOH giveaway that Heather at Speckled Egg had. She gave me a $40.00 gift certificate to her wonderful shop. She sells great items for crafting as well as other treasures. She would also enjoy a visit from you at

Have my copy of the new Flea Market magazine. Lots of fun ideas, some new and some revised! Lots of great photos!

Just a couple of photos of the finds from Thrifting on Thursday and estate sales on Friday and Saturday. There is more "stuff"...I just don't want to upload all the stuff and bore you!! LOL!!!

I found the green owl flower frog at one of the estate sale and got it second day at half price. His little ears are damaged. I guess I have a new collection!!! Send HELP!!!
It was BUSY at HQ on Saturday and people were buying!!! Can't wait to see my sales tickets!
I hope to start moving/painting my new space this weekend. The "boss" said there needs to be a meeting first...that's okay as I have a few pieces of small furniture that I can start painting and of course there is ALWAYS treasures to price. I have to find my Easter goodies too as that will be most of the "theme" for my room in March.
I baby sat "Chopper" last night...he is such a sweetie. Jackson Brown wanted to play all the time and I could see Chopper rollings his eyes!!!'t this little guy just leave me alone!!!

I am so BEHIND in visiting you gals...
Take care!
Deb :)

I love how older dogs tolerate puppies!! You have a great new collection! I hope you did well this weekend. I LOVE!! the green owl! That is amazing. I have never seen one of those before. I would have not been able to wait, well done to get him half price!

Hi again Deb,

Please go to this site:

I believe your green owl flower frog is possibly depression glass. I used to deal in depression glass and sell at the shows. You might want to take note of its value for insurance sake :)


Martha's Favorites said...

What great new treasures. I have that exact bust in my home as well, I believe the brother is at my house. Blessings, Martha

Scrap for Joy said...

Wow Deb-you've certainly been on a lucky streak lately. Good for you! I just found the Vintage Syle magazine today at's going on the plane with me tomorrow. Good reading!

Angie said...

I love that little trophy..too sweet! And, yes, I think you are collecting flower frogs without realizing You find some neat ones for sure! My brother has a pit bull and she is the sweetest dog, too. They get a bad rap and it isn't fair. It is how a dog is treated not its breed that affects their temperament.

Hugs ~ Angie

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Thinking of you my friend....m..

Holly- Girls At Heart said...

Hi, Deb! Your mantel is so pretty and yes, Kailee is learning! I loved how in tune my grandgirls were to me even though it had been over a year since I had seen them!

Don't worry about showing us too many pictures! We love to see what you find! ♥

Linda said...

Oh, I need to get my FM magizine. I haven't seen it here...hope I haven't missed it.

Neat finds Deb. I think your green owl flower frog is so great....I love the metal ones too. Glad your sales were good and I'm looking forward to seeing all your Easter things...hugs, Linda

Judi said...

Hi there
You always find the neatest treasures on your scouting about. Neat. I hope you had a good weekend.

I know now 4 people with those Labradoodles and they are all nice dogs. They are rather frisky the first year but then they become so settled and they are a smart dog.

have a lovely Monday..

Queenie said...

Hey Deb!
Your mantle looks so pretty and elegant with the lace, flowers and the new look. It must be so fun to have a mantle to decorate for the different holidays...I will just have to enjoy yours! LOL!
Congrats on winning the giveaways...I have always loved mosaics...that frame is gorgeous! I'll have to go visit those blogs you spoke of in your post.
Great finds from the weekend too...yep, we always can find a little more room for another collection of some sort, can't we!?

Good luck on getting your booth/room ready, I know you'll have fun arranging everything in there...can hardly wait to see it decked out for Easter.
Hope you have a great week sweetie....
Big Hugs,

Cheryl said...

Dang girlie... you got some really cool things!! I'm finding it harder and harder to find places for all of my "new-old" things in my house. Under my bed is even stuffed.... *sigh* lol

Anonymous said...

I'm jealous! I have been looking and looking for the Flea Market Magazine- no luck so far!!

Looks like lots of great finds your way!!

Hey Miss Deb!
How's it going? Yep, PINK is a happy color..and roses...well there's just no other flower for me..ahhhh, lol.

Hey I see some great goodies. Are you selling those prickly frogs? I have been looking for some to use for holding my growing Post card collection. Let me know, k? swap? trade? lol

Yes, Id say you have your G-d trained which is way cool. My dd never got into that..even now she's rolling her eyes at me...

Okay..have a great week!

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Congratulations on your wins! I am going to have to find that magazine! You did really well at the thrift stores. I swear other people have better thrift stores than we have here. Have a nice week! Twyla

goldenbird said...

Is that green owl a candle holder? Ooh, I see some pretty golden birds. Love all of that lace. You've won some lovely items!

Congrats on your sales ... hope you were pleased with the sales tickets.

Dogwood said...

How exciting to have a new space. Looking forward to seeing it all set-up in your lovely manner.

I really like your mantel. Sweet and simple.

I have got to find that magazine. Looks great.

Have a sweet evening.

Hi Deb,

Your green owl flower frog is still of some value. An avid flower frog collector would not pass it up for perhaps half of that price. It is hard to find, I am sure. The red paint on the other owl frog would probably not be original from the manufacturer. You have a good find! You are welcome for the info.

Joy said...

What nice things you found. I love the mosaic you won too. Very pretty. I haven't gotten to Easter
yet. Waiting till after St.Pats day. Even though I am not really Irish, more German...oh well. It's fun. Have a great week!

Margaret Cloud said...

What gorgeous finds, like the small green pitcher. You are so lucky, it would be fun to run an antique space and mark all the finds. Have a nice week. Your mantel looks so nice.

you find the most wonderful things!!!!
