Tweaked Mantle & Flea Market Finds

 Added my Faux peonies to the mantle. I'm on the lookout for some in the pretty pink color.

 Hubby and I went to the Trader's Flea Market and these are the goodies I picked up. LOVE the window. It needs to be sealed with varnish and then I'm going to find the perfect spot in my home for it! I also saw Faye there. I just can not pass up linens! BAD ME!!! LOL!


There is a new posting formant and I'm not able to see some of the icons on the top, like spell check...hmmm...why can't blogger leave stuff alone!

Another cloudy day with light rain...and it's COLD! I turned the furnace back on last night! REALLY!

Cleaned the house and did some laundry today! Also have the family room looking much better. I'm having a blogging friend come in June for a visit! Pretty excited about her visit and it gives me the best reason to get some things done around the house!

Lilacs, Tea Party & Button Garland Gift


The rain has stopped and I can finally ENJOY my lilacs. I have 3 different  types bushes to enjoy. I wish they would last all summer!  My little lily of the valley are almost ready to enjoy too!

A couple of weeks ago there was a wonderful Tea Party at my church. The men served us ladies. It was very Fun. There was a fashion show too! This is the table that I sat at and the lady you see set the table was the hostess. There were so Many Pretty Tables. Maybe next year, I'll be a hostess!


Holly from Cutie Pie Cottage sent me this darling ragball & button garland, just because! She makes them!  THANK YOU,HOLLY! It's going to hang in my craftroom!

The long weekend will include Yard WORK, Trader's  Flea Market in Elko and daughter is having a BBQ. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

THANK YOU for all the well wishes on our Anniversary and Hubby's new job! Next month is my blog Birthday and I know I'll have a giveaway!

Few Finds & Changes for Hubby

Since I had my garage sale on Thursday, I wasn't in a hurry to do some "shopping". We went 2nd day to a "packed" sale and I found these at 1/2 off! I want to alter a journal for personal use and I think one is just the right size.

My garage sale went well. We "made" $400.00 (LOL)....and now I'm in the process of cleaning out the garage and donating the leftovers. Nothing back into the house! It was a perfect day on Thursday too!

Hubby works for UPS and there was an opening for a "driver", full time work. He applied and will start in June. He works part time now. The real estate market isn't providing for us and this will. He will have 9+ hours a day and a pay cut for 2  years, but then it will be good! We spend most of the day together now. It will be a huge change for both of us!!! Puppies too! I'll be making changes with the antique business. May go down to selling at one shop....it's all GOOD! 

Today is our 23rd wedding anniversary and it rained just like on our wedding day! Time flys!

With all the RAIN this weekend, the flowers are ready to burst. I can't wait for them to bloom and bring some inside to enjoy! Lilacs and lily of the valley!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! Tomorrow is my duty day at Auntie M's!!!

I'm NOT complaining, but it got to 90 today! Going to watch Grandgirl's game tonight!

Happy that Spring is Here!

Happy Mom's Day & Nest Swap

                HAPPY MOM'S DAY TO ALL MY BLOGGING FRIENDS!
I could live in this sweet cottage!
 I was in Viv's Nest Swap and my partner was, Kim at A Vintage Fairy and she made the darling felt bluebird for me! There are little eggs in the nest too! It was wrapped in a bread basket linen. THANK YOU, Kim,! It's just adorable!!! One of these days, I'm going to make felt animals/birdies!
This is the one I made for Kim! I tried to think outside of the box and used a small tray!

I hope everyone has a Lovely Mom's Day and a Blessed Sunday too!
Warmly,

Fun Time & Finds

 On Tuesday I had a FUN day with Jeanne! We had lunch at The Mad Hatter, her treat! She gave me the darling  dessert plate that matches a luncheon set that I have! We also went to the Round Barn which is so awesome! THANK YOU,dear Friend!

These are recent finds from estate sales. Must keep the booths stocked! Shopping for treasures it the Best part of the Job!

Finally, Spring is here! Light rain today, but I don't mind! It's way better than snow.
I'm also getting ready for the garage sale next Thursday.  It's going to be a city wide one, so I hope that everything sells! Email me if you want to come!

Also need to get going on the yard. Behind because of the late snow! Sorry that I haven't been around to visit. Grandgirl has started fast pitch ball on night a week and the days just fly by!

Take care!
