My Simple Cards & Finds & Gift

The sweet little "salt" holder and book came in the mail from Debbie. We surprise each other once in awhile with little gifts. THANK YOU, Debbie! Blogging gals are super sweet!

I TRY and TRY and TRY to add more embellishments, ribbon, pretties, etc to my cards and I don't have the hang of it. I think it's not "me"... guess my "style" is like the cards above. Simple!

Sweet, Sun Bonnet Babies pictures from the garage sale where we bought the lawyer bookcase for hubby's toys.

Some one hand made blue bowl which I just LOVE! Pottery like this really appeals to me. The sea shell ball was a gift from the gal that I'm helping to get her craft room organized!

More finds. I think the little piggy will hang out here for awhile.

Remember the Kitchen Prayer Lady tea pot???I looked on EBay and have been watching one that is for sale and it's over 150.00!! WHO KNEW!!! I just might try to sell mine on EBay in a couple of weeks! That's a LOT of money!

Worked my duty day today and it was pretty quiet at the shop until 4:10 and then it was busy! We close at 5 PM and had folks shopping until 5:20! One item sold from my booth!

Thanks for all the nice comments about my shell mantle! I do appreciate all your kind words.

Hubby got a new grill today from my kids. He really needed a new one! Cooked up the meat nicely tonight.

Don't you just love it when you find something at a sale and then find it online and it's way more $$ than you paid for it!!! Once in awhile that happens to me. Love the tin and the towel.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

I thought the prayer lady would be a good one for you, there are some rarer pieces in the line and I hadn't seen one of those before...good for you!

I like your cards. Simple is more my style, too. I had missed your shell looks lovely and the swimmer is just great!!

Very pretty cards, Deb. You always do such a nice job with your cards. They don't need more embellishments. Very pretty as is. Thanks for sharing!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Oh how fun to see something you found selling for some good money! Love it for you. I think your cards are wonderful..I like your style! That pig is also pretty darn cute. Hugs, Linda

I got the cutest card in the mail this weekend...So cute in fact that my daughter is studying it so that she can recreate it. So cute I am going to put it on a banner. Love you new finds. Glad your weekend was of luck with the tea pot...smiles...Renee

Awesome about the little teapot! Woo hoo!

You are amazing.
Are those paintings surrounded by metal links and painted on glass. I ask because I have a beautiful poem that my mother-in-law had for years also painted on glass.

Jocelyne's Tea Parties said...

I love seeing all of the goodies you find every week. Makes me want to go treasure hunting! I'm having a birthday giveaway if you're interested!

Hi Deb!

Everytime I read your blog I get the itch to go out rummaging!
Thanks so much for keeping in touch, especially since I've been out of it for the past few weeks.
Kids went back to school after the teacher's strike (the 2nd week of June, wasn't that sweet of them!) and I'm trying to catch up until they're done for summer vacation.
Guess what I found out? Our new kitty, Oreo, isn't a she! Oops! Not as obvious as a dog, that's for sure!

Glenda said...

I was wandering by and thought I'd stop and say hello. Nice to see you're still up and running.


Celestina Marie said...

Hi Deb, Love all that you share and your cards are wonderful. You certainly do have the hang of it.
Love the pottery and shell bouquet. Very unusually and artistic.
Thank you for stopping by and your kind words about our Miss B. You blessed me with your visits.
Hugs, CMD

Hello my sweet friend!
Love comingby and seeing all of you goodies you find. I always forget to take pictures and never know if anyone is But you always seem to find some great goodies!

Thanks so much for stopping by last week. I had a rough 3 weeks and it was so sad to see my Chloe girl go...we left the next day to visit my fam in Seattle so the timing could not have been better.

Be blessed,
