Saturday Finds, Blog Birthday, I'm 3

These are the finds from Saturday. One sale was a "chick" sale and hubby didn't want to stay long there...Tissue box made with fabric and lovely old flowers..

LOVE Paper treasures. I do have a HUGE paper stash!

Lovely yellow scale for my "sunny yellow" kitchen.. a keeper for now!

My blog Birthday is this month...THREE years ago. It's really amazing the friendship one can have on line. Here is a little something for one of you. Just leave a comment that you would like to have them and a name will be picked this weekend. Thank you, friends, for being You, for liking me and your always kind comments! May God Bless You!

I'm cleaning up the family room. Yesterday I saw the "Hoarder's" show and it's a real Eye-Opener! SO...it's time to get serious and get the family room looking like a family room. Not a CATCH ALL of TOTES! That is my goal before the weekend.

From the looks of my room at HQ, I think it was a pretty good sale. Thankful! Of course the proof is the pay check on Friday!

Take care!

Funny you should say that about the Hoarders show. I happened to catch an episode yesterday morning and I'm telling you I was sooo motivated to clean after that. I am fascinated by that show,so am finding myself pitching and tossing a little more these days. haha

I love your paper treasures. Can't get enough memo pads, especially ones so cute. I've never won a blog giveaway, so count me in also.

My Blessed Serendipity Life said...

Happy bloggy birthday Deb! There is a definite difference between a hoarder and a collector. Oh wait, does that make me a hoarder? LOL. Love your giveaway and would love a chance.


Melinda said...

Happy 3rd :-)

Beautiful finds. I went thrifting today....gotta love it when you find little treasures!

Patti said...

Happy blog birthday to you!! The years fly, don't they? I actually started blogging back in early 2006, but I took a long hiatus, so, now, I've just passed by 1 year birthday (for this blog).

It really is amazing the wonderful friends one can meet through this great big blog world, isn't it?

Have a great day,

Hi Deb.
I haven't watched the show...but today started cleaning out the art supplies and sewing fabrics. Posted most of it for free on Craigslist this afternoon. TOO MUCH STUFF IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Your treasures are always so fun to look at. I love that scale! Good find for sure. Three years blogging...how exciting. Put my name in the hat for the giveaway please! I'm so happy you blog and we have met and become friends! hugs, Linda
PS I get scared when I watch Hoaders...makes me really take a look at my stuff!

Something Special said...

Hi Deb, I would love to have treasures from you. I am very envious of the scale you found. It is so cool. I was wondering where in Minnesota do you live. I am sure I had your address at one time, but not any more. Maybe when my hubby and I are in Minn. if we come through your town or close by we could stop. we are unfortunately on quite a tight schedule, and will only be gone for 5 days. two of those days are for travel of course.

Kimmie said...

Oh so many treasures sigh!
Particularly love the vintage Christmas baubles as I collect those.

Well done on 3 years!

I hope we can find a chick sale when I come! Happy third anniversary! Glad you did well on your sale, your right you don't know. One month I thought I did not make rent and I quadrupled it....Who know's


Jane said...

Happy Blog Birthday!! I know what you mean about stuff taking over a room. I have a craft room that I can hardly walk into!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Linda said...

Deb-Congratulations on 3 yrs blogging! I'd love to be entered in your giveaway!
Hoarders is pretty scary ... whenever I have some little thing I start to save, thinking I might be able to use it in my crafts, that show pops in my head and I freak out and have to toss it!! Aren't we silly creatures?!?
Blessings, L

Dogwood said...

I 'get' the hoarder fear - just have to look in my office, basement, sheds .... scary. Everything will go out to my booths, just not right now....

3 years of blogging - that is a lot of writing and posting.

Love your 'finds' this week.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Appreciate it.

Hi Deb, love your treasures in your giveaway and Congratulations on 3 years, I can't believe it's been 3. Do you still have any of the clip earrings from the last post? Hope you had a great shop weekend.

Anonymous said...

Queenie said...

That scale is perfect for your new sunny kitchen Deb...love that..and your other finds. Funny how the hubby's don't want to stay long at the chick sales lol! You found some pretty stuff...well you always do..you've got a great eye for it :)

Thanks for stopping over, it's always a treat seeing you'd stopped by! I was gonna get over here to your place today too. You had asked about the wedding plans.... Well, Things have not come together yet and the wedding is postponed for a little bit because of confusion over the location and renting it, but it will come together maybe soon. They are still planning and getting things ready. I'll let you know as time goes on.

Congrats on three years, I'm so glad I've had the pleasure of knowing you and you being my friend...count me in on your drawing okay?!
Love ya girl...
Big hugs,
