Bluebird Banner, Chandy, Before & After

Sharon from My Vintage Studio made this banner. I had seen the tags below and though they would make a darling "valance" for my "someday" craft room. So, I emailed Sharon and ordered one. Isn't it just too sweet!! She also sent along a couple of tags. Sharon make wonderful tags and sells them. I thought I would like 7 bluebirds, however 5 seem perfect. I'll keep it on my mantle for awhile. Thank you, Sharon. :)

These awesome Valentine boxes are from the sale last Saturday. They came in their original boxes also. They are a little they are in the porch with a little baking soda in them.

I think the small ones will make a sweet swap item next year or maybe a giveaway next year!

Here is the chandy. It's VERY dirty and I still haven't cleaned her up. She'll go to HQ next month and maybe I'll just "use" her for awhile...

I bought this jar at GW yesterday, 2.99 minus my SENIOR discount, 25%....I knew it would be perfect to put the labels on that I received from Christine at This and That Creations, who was my swap partner for the Something Blue....swap... A benefit to the "55" club :) I also sprayed the lid blue :) Sandy at 521 Lake Street makes these labels...isn't that something!!

PERFECT. I had a hard time with the first label...looks vintage at least.

I must whine for a moment...I DISLIKE lawn work, I'm not an outside gal, weeding isn't fun and it's hot and humid today but the lawn needed to be mowed...YUK!!! Okay...I'm thankful for a yard, legs and arms to mow, it's good exercise plus it helps out hubby. Feeling better....

Thank you for all your well wishes for a great sale. I hope tomorrow goes by quickly...still not used to being on my feet for 8 the temp may get into the high 80's....

HAPPY WEEKEND!!! Happy hunting and ENJOY yourself!!!


Deb :)

Oh that is the cutest banner! Looks precious on your fireplace mantle :)

Great finds on those Valentine Hearts and that jar you made is so cute! I know how you feel about yard work honey, every time I go outside for a little while... even in the is so humid and hot that I have to change clothes and get a shower lol! It's officially summer now as of yesterday and boy we are feeling it for sure, of course it's been summer down here in the deep south for at least 2 months now. I'm singing....Come on Fall :) lol
Hope you have a beautiful week sweetie...try to stay cool!
