Recent finds & Project

 
THANK YOU ALL so MUCH for the Birthday Wishes!! It was a sweet birthday. On Friday hubby and I went to a collector's estate sale and it was pretty good! Prices, so-so, but we bought treasures. The ones in the photo above and below. I now have 3 old puppies. This one looks like Jackson Brown:)  2 old scrabble games and some fun tins!!!




Isn't that small baby shoe form darling:) Cool blue bird tins. There were some bluebird plates, but too beat up for me.  Saturday we went to a big flea market at the fair grounds. It was windy and a tad chilly! I bought a couple kids books. Things there were high. There were some very cool treasures, but not for my pocket book! Always fun to window shop!!!
 Bought these a couple weeks ago. Clocks always sell at the booths. The old grate is for my collection :)



This is my tiny dinning area that needed trim. SO, I stain & varnish the trim and hubby installs it. That is how we work on projects around here:)
Much better! I wanted to have this done before a blogging friend comes to visit me in May! Sandy, from 521 Lake Street is coming here! Having company is one way to get projects done, plus the wedding! LOL!!!

It was a very nice Easter! The weather was perfect. Lots of food and family here! God is GOOD! I hope you all had a Blessed Easter also!

Daughter tried on her wedding dress and it's a tad tight! We are getting SERIOUS about dropping a few pounds! It's 5 months away!!! This Saturday is the florist appointment. They ordered the invitations yesterday on line.

Hoping to get the yard work started soon! Always something to do :)

warmly,
deb

Happy Birthday! Love all your vintage treasures. It's so fun to grab that find when we are out on the hunt. Have a good week!

Love the treasures esp. the olden dog and the lunchbox. I had a lunchbox just like that a very long time ago.
Sizes can vary. Maybe the next time she tries it on it will be just right. I remember my dress was too big when I tried it on before the wedding. Last time that ever happened. hah

Happy, Happy Birthday dear lady! I've got my mom here at home for a couple of days as she transitions from rehab back to her apartment.

I love those bluebird tins, very pretty. I'm getting rid of a lot of the goodies in my studio, so no more collecting for me.

Have a great week,
Hugs,
Meri

At least if she tries to lose it is nice weather she could get out and do some walking or something. I hate trying to lose weight in the winter. The floor turned out great!
