More finds and Taking a Break

Paper mache bunny is waiting for the rest of the Easter mantle...which I'll start on when I return from a little R&R...aka vacation... going to the "beach"... details when I get back.
Moved my little lady around too...

Awesome key chain "fab" we bought last weekend. It was priced...29.00 and we bought it for 20.00 that's a better price...we just said what's your best price...

Found this beauty at the thrift store. Milk glass cake plate. Nice shape, no cracks on the edge, just the crack on the top..sweet..

Bought these all wrapped up and didn't KNOW how many were in horrible shape..was disappointed and then thought...Garden Plates.... or??? any ideas from you gals???
Decided to take a little vacation and get some SUN and SAND!! Have a house/dog sitter so that the puppies won't miss me too much.
I'll post soon...when I return...not leaving for a couple of days..just wanted to get "things" done before I finish packing, cleaning, etc....
Don't miss me too much... LOL!!

More SNOW, Valentine tag & Goodies

Joyce from sent me the Valentine above. Isn't she just sweet Thank you, Joyce. I have all the Valentine's hanging on a piece of lace on my family room window. They are just too pretty to put away and they inspire me. They make a nice banner. We went to a couple estate sales yesterday and these are my finds. Not much which is fine as I need my $$$ for our upcoming vacation...

See the old dentist tools...they were found at an antique store that we stopped at and were a buck of terror...

View outside the TV room window, form a couple of minutes ago. Guess it's going to SNOW all day today and tomorrow...REALLY!! Enough is Enough.
I'm "watching" the Daytona NASCAR race, doing laundry and blogging...multi-tasking today. No school tomorrow, so little Grand daughter will be here all day.
Happy Sunday...

Making Cards

These are the cards that I made over the weekend. I think I have enough birthday cards for awhile!
It's bitter COLD, again!!! I'll be getting my room ready for the sale next week. Nothing much going on here. Me and the puppies just want it to warm up!
Have a great week! If my room is ready by the weekend, I'll take some photos. I have plenty of "smalls" to sell. I need some chairs and tables...I may have to go out shopping this week ~
Trying to keep WARM,

"KEY" to my Heart

I saw something like the one I made above last year around blog land and made one for me! I used old frame, scrapbook paper, old key, crocheted lace heart and ribbon. Very Easy!
Resting buddies. She just loves to be with him...

Tweaked the mantle. It's really looking like Valentine's Day around here.

Tomorrow I'm making cards with a couple of gals and of course there must be "Treats"...and lemon bars, which I'm off to bake.
Have a great weekend. "DO" something just for YOU!
