Roses, dresser and finds

 This rose bush is a 4th generation from my Great-Grandma and this year has 100's of blooms on it! Maybe all the rain helped! It's never been this pretty and smells DIVINE!

 Went to a AWESOME estate sale on Friday and bought this dresser for 95.00. I've been waiting to find a new! Grand girl has my old one as she needed a "new" one too!
Bought most of these goodies at that sale. I also bought a small table and lots of  used vintage cards. We went back the 2nd day and bought more. It was a 3 day sale, but didn't go on the 3rd day as we spent more than we should have.

Grand girl had tourney's this weekend. Came in 2nd place. Hubby's folks had their 60th wedding anniversary party on Saturday. Full weekend. Grilled yesterday for Father's day. My daughter gave Pat (stepdad) the best card. Had tears in my eyes. She said "you are more like my dad, than my real dad". WOW.... she is having both "dads" walk her down the aisle on her wedding day! That says A LOT!

Today, Grand girl and I went on a bike ride! I haven't ridden a bike in MANY YEARS!!! LOL! Not sure I like the bike, but we'll be doing more this summer! We will be hanging out on most Mondays and every Wednesday this summer.

This Friday is the ocasional sales in Carver! I'll be at the Vintage Cottage on Friday! Maybe I'll see you!

NEWS: Hubby decided not to take the driving job. He'll go back to the 3:00AM shift that is Tuesday-Friday at UPS which is part time. He felt he wasn't "getting" it with the computer that they use for deliveries. Praying that real estate takes off for him....

Warmly,
deb

Super sweet about your daughter walking down the isle with both Dads!

My husband has a hand held computer and said many of his coworkers just don't get it either, but your husband has to do what is best for him.
Love your rose bush and all those finds!

Wow! You really cleaned up! You scored some great stuff. The dresser is so nice, and your rose bush is to die for. Sure wish we could have beautiful flowers like that here in Texas. In the summer it's so hot that everything burns up.

ThrifterSisters said...

What a beautiful dresser and at $95 I would say you got quite a good deal!

Keep enjoying your Summer:-)

I too have a rosebush that belonged to my great great grandmother! It's still intact, and is a pale blush pink with doubly petaled blooms--scented just heavenly! I enjoy reading your blog! I am trying to keep up with mine, maybe pay more attention! I get so inspired following different blogs--get inspired while at work, and want to go home and 'play'! Keep it up! Take a walk in the garden any day! Play with the grands, and learn to pedal that bike! Great fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!

I love your white roses and all the goodies you bought, and see you have been very busy with family things and buying too. I hope your hubby's career goals all work out as he wants.
