Twins Game, Finds and Sweet Pea

It's so HOT & HUMID here that Sweet Pea is wearing her ears up !!!

Saturday was the Twins game. Tickets said the game started at 3:15 PM...we were there at 3 PM and they weren't letting anyone in...hmmm.... so we asked and was told that they set the time to 6:15 PM... are you kidding...

so...we had an early dinner at a local restaurant, outside and people watched for awhile which was very interesting as the ticket scalpers were all around. The doors opened after 4 PM so we went in and walked around. It was pretty warm and our seat were in the sunshine!! We didn't stay long as we thought we would be home around 7PM and we had no one to let the dogs out when thing had changed! The stadium is nice. Food and drinks EXPENSIVE!!! Don't need to go again.


Saturday finds. Lots of postcards at great prices :)



Yes...that bird is another flower frog...as well as some pricky ones.



"Tweaked" the mantle and like this look for now.
Stinkin HOT & HUMID...when will it end??!! I'm busy pricing treasures for the next sale and trying to clean up the family room. In October I'll be having a Girlfriend Gathering. It's friends from Jr & Sr High. We haven't been all together for 5 years. They will be staying here and I MUST have the house ready for them. 6 of us altogether. I'm also thinking of some fun things to do. Skydiving is top of the list!! LOL!!! A girl can dream :)
Trying to Keep Cool!

The baseball stadium looked nice. I went to a couple of Twin's games when we lived in MN in 1996-98. I could never get used to watching a game in the Metrodome.
Loved your finds this week!

Hi Deb. It has been so hot and humid here too. Miserable. Sounds like someone should have told you the change in time:(. Love your finds. Postcards are gorgeous. Enjoy your day preparing for your guests. Hugs

Oh Deb, that Sweet Pea is a hoot wearing her ears up and all...yep, I've been wearing my "hair" up quite a bit too...a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do, in this heat right?! lol

I absolutely love the new look for your mantel...very shabby chic and so pretty!

Gosh, I can't believe that the game was posponed for that long, especially since the tickets said 3:15... Of course, I have never been to a game before, but I didn't know they did that. You are so funny, I had to chuckle a bit from you sayin' you won't go back. You really know how to keep it real. You are just too cute girl!

Love the post card finds and the other treasures you came home with too :)
Hope you have a great day!
Big Hugs,
Queenie

I haven't been to a baseball game in years! You're right, the food and drink prices are outrageous.
You hit the postcard motherlode! I definitely want to start collecting those.
Although I hate to say it, I think I'm ready for fall! This summer has been so hot and humid, and the AC has been running nonstop.
Please Deb, for Pete's sake, don't go skydiving!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

Hi Deb,
Thank you so much for the sweet comments about Stryker. He is a gift from God, love him to pieces. Sweet Pea is soooo cute! If we lived close they could have a play date : )
Hugs,

That mantle mirror looks great with the "H" over it. The baseball game sounds, um, not so great. I'm not much of a sports fan. But the girlfriend weekend, that sounds like fun!!!

Margaret Cloud said...

I always ;oe the cards you find. Sweet Pea is so cute, especially with his ears up. It is hot and sticky here also, will be glad to see it go.

Oh Deb! You found some wonderful things! I am so jealous of all your postcards:) Love the egg coddlers. Such a pretty pattern. We have had 100 degree weather for the past three days. I am just sick with the heat and don't want to do anything:( I think we are going to get a break from it tomorrow. Twyla

Don't you hate it when you get the time wrong on an event and have to kill time. But, going out to eat was nice.

I love the postcards. They are all soso sweet.

The H is perfect above the mirror.

Hi Deb!
Sounds like you've had some of the same heat we've had. I don't complain though cause I'd rather have the heat than cold any ole day!

Sounds, like you had a great time at the b-ball game...we are going with friends on Tues to a Tiger game...hope it wont be too hot. lol

I am hoping to have some very good news next week so keep an eye out as I will do a blog about it! Can't say much yet.

Blessings...Lorena
