Weekend Review

 Real bluebird eggs! We are surprised to see that ther are 3 eggs because when we first looked there was only ONE! Tomorrow we'll peek again in the nest!
 Finds from a 2nd day sale! All 1/2 off! Love that!
Also bought  some cards, but they are a little stinky, so I'm "airing" them out!   We only went to 1 sale this weekend. Nothing looked that "good"! Instead we went to the farmer's market and bought some fresh veggies! YUM!

Grandgirl had games, Thurs-Sunday! Long weekend! It was Freezing on Thursday & Friday, much better today. I even wore my WINTER coat to a couple games! Only in Minnesota! Gotta love it! She has a tourney in Kansas Aug 1-4th, however I'm not going.

Had a "scare" this week with Sweet Pea. Her right eye wasn't "right"...took her to vet and found nothing wrong. Her eye was "floating" to me. Almost like she had a stroke or something. Guess just a bug bite! She is fine now.

I met another blogger! I'll tell you in my next post! How FUN!

Warmly,

Garage Sale Finds & Baby Chickadees


I went out on Thursday in 90+ degrees and found these goodies! YES, I needed a little "fix"! All at great prices! I'm going to paint the little "bench" and probably keep it. The black "birdcage" is also going to get painted.


We have a bluebird house and the chickadees took it over and had 5 babies. After they flew the coop, hubby went to clean out the birdhouse and found one little guy who didn't make it. We now have bluebirds in the house with 1 egg in it. I sure hope it makes it!

Grandgirl ended up liking (VBS) Day camp. She went all 4 days. Thankful!

On Thursday I'm meeting up with 4 friends from high school. There should be a 40th high school reunion this year! However, no one is organinzing it! Guess the year isn't over! LOL! YES, I'm that OLD!

WOW, July is almost over! The summer always goes by too quickly! I hope you are enjoying your summer!

This weeks few finds

This is my snowball bush in the front of the house. It's doing very well this year.

There were SO MANY estate sales this weekend. However, only a few looked good enough that we went to. So, here are my few and meager finds! That's okay!

This week is going to fly by. I'm taking my Grandgirl to vacation Bible school. I wish I could go! Friday is my "work" day at The Vintage Cottage in Carver, Visit ME! Saturday is my duty day at Auntie M's in Hopkins (noon-5:30) Come visit me!

Keep Cool! It's going to be in the 90's here all week!

Flea Market Finds


These are the few things I bought at the Trader's Market on Saturday. I've "seen" the tin in older decorating magazines and though I would "love" to have one...BINGO! The little piggy is a shaker and the hanky blends with the finds.


Of course that meant that a little "tweaking" had to happen! I sure am LOVING the touches of RED in my kitchen :)

Somebody wanted his belly rub last night! He makes us laugh!

The computer/blogger is giving me "fits" tonight!
SO, I'm just going to post this and visit you guys!
Keep Cool!

Mini Projects & Shell Mantle

 I thought this little birdhouse would look better "shabby"...before above
 After above. Sorry it's on it's side. You get the idea! I just love this paper.
 I decided to make a new valance for the kitchen window. I keep making them.One of these days, I'll have the perfect one! Since I don't really sew, the vintage linens work for me!
See my sea shells!  Thinking the mantle needs some tweeking with the shells now that I see it on my blog!  LOL! Anyone want to come over and help? Love the sea coral in the white vase.

We didn't do anything for the 4th. Stayed home, no fireworks, didn't grill. Walked the dogs and they love that. Went today too! Hubby is off the 5 days, so they are getting morning walks. Plus, it's much cooler.

Might go to the Trader's Market in Elko, MN tomorrow. Otherwise, pricing, sorting, and going thru our stuff!

Have a great weekend!
Warmly,
